SPEAKERPODCAST EP.132 – Absolute Explosion!

The SpeakerPODcast Crew is on the scene at this year’s All-Japan Model and Hobby Show to see the unveiling of the latest Valkyrie design and hear all the latest updates regarding next year’s Macross Delta Movie Absolute Live!!!!! (hence all the background noise, sorry ^^;)

Renato also joins us to talk about the recent BASARA EXPLOSION 2019 concert before we derail completely into a discussion about the recent Go Nagai And Isao Takahata exhibits.

Which was better? What IS the Mazinvalkyrie? And why won’t Karice put Uta Macross down long enough to finish the cast?

SpeakerPODcast EP.131 – Keep calm and watch Macross!

There’s been a lot of Macross news and rumors as of late, some good, some seemingly less so. What’s it all mean? This episode we sit down to talk all about it as well as catch up on all the recent happenings and events. Adrian, international-man-of-action that he is, drops by AX2019, San Diego Comicon and somehow still has time to find out the truth behind “Genesis Breakers Mospeada 2083″… or does he?

We also meet Hiroki “Ishtar” Kasahara, find out what Isamu Dyson is up to in the year 2067, discover the must-have Macross fanzine of the year (if not the decade), and experience Uta Macross in VR. All this and more in the latest episode of the SpeakerPODcast!

SpeakerPODcast EP.130 – Promare

With half the Crew out on assignment at AX2019 (to be covered in more detail next episode), Gwyn and Tony take some time out to discuss Trigger’s latest theatrical offering, Promare, which recently topped 1 billion yen at the Japanese box-office.

According to Tony though, Promare might not be as original a production as many think and may actually have its origins in a Kabuki production that few outside of Japan know about…

SpeakerPODcast EP.129 – Shoji Kawamori Expo

From May 31 to June 23, 2019, an exhibition was held to commemorate Shoji Kawamori’s 40th anniversary as a designer. Titled “Shoji Kawamori Expo“, it was held at Gallery AaMo at Tokyo Dome City and included samples of many works spanning the last 40 years of his career, including many which had never previously ben shown to the public.

Several members of the SpeakerPODcast Crew, and special guests Karice and Kim, were fortunate enough to participate in private tours of the Expo by Shoji Kawamori himself and managed to ask him about the VF-4, the origin of the Milky Dolls, and most importantly, whether or not he likes frogs…

SpeakerPODcast EP.128 – Listen to our Shoegaze!

Macross Crossover Live 2019, the biggest Macross event of the year – or perhaps of the last 7 years – has happened and… well, we’re all still recovering from it to be honest.

The original SpeakerPODcast Crew and some special guests (and a cat with wine) reunite to discuss who sang what, confuse Macross 30 lyrics, and debate Megumi’s skirt twirling incident.
