Otaku Evolution Episode 241 - Super Dimension Fortress Macross

Super Dimension Fortress Macross, the original Macross anime, is sure a classic of anime. But it has its share of issues, too, that make it not quite make my top 30. To be honest, I barely watched any of the episodes past 27 for this review, because that's where the story basically ends. I've seen the rest of the episodes, too, don't get me wrong, but they're hardly worth mentioning. I think I covered the penultimate episode in a Christmas video I did years ago. It's still damn good anime, overall.

For those who've been following the show, my Christmas episodes are usually the videos I put the most effort into. This year, lacking a single, sufficiently Christmas-y anime to review itself, I decided to pick a few episodes of different anime that take place on and/or around Christmas. Lupin The Third, Case Closed, and Super Dimensional Fortress Macross are the subject of my holiday hand wringing. Don't forget to check out the new Lucky Squid Studios commercial included!


Otaku Evolution Episode 73 - Macross Plus

I've really painted myself into a corner this year with Otaku Evolution, covering so many of my favorite anime (like this one), there's not a whole lot of the best I can review (or at least not a whole lot I can monetize reviews for). But nevertheless, it was great revisiting Macross Plus and confirming that not only does it completely hold up, but it's still one of the best mecha anime. But what else could it be with that pedigree? Shinichiro Watanabe, Keiko Nobumoto, Ichiro Itano, Yoko Kanno, and for the English dub, Bryan Cranston! Few other anime could satisfy my need for great anime to review for this year's Action Channel Month quite like this! It's so crazy good, you'll hear "Voices"!
