Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans Season 2 Episode 07 – Catharsis

Body: 

Now this is the kind of balls to the wall action I wanted around the time of episode 3. The intensity and great choreography is there, but more importantly it has the emotional core and tension I thought was missing in the space battle. The initial fight, which had Maccy go up against Takaki and Aston, and be BESTED by both of them is a very good affair, and almost had me think at the time how he would taken down a peg and set back a few spaces by injury, capture, or maybe death.

Otaku Evolution Episode 77 - Goku Midnight Eye

Body: 

This month I'm doing a Yoshiaki Kawajiri theme, kicking it off with a two-part OVA based on a work by Buichi Terasawa (creator of Space Adventure Cobra), Goku Midnight Eye! He doesn't have a cloud to fly on and he can't become Super Saiyan Blue, but this Goku does have an extending bo like a certain other Goku! Add to that his ability to basically dominate technology, and you have... well, kind of an OP hero, who somehow still struggles. But hey, at least he can make a boss car.

Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans Season 2 Episode 06 – Battle of The Plains of Alberta

Body: 

Like the Edmonton battle before it, the battle in this episode starts in media res, taking place two weeks after the events that transpired in the previous show. Unfortunately for Takaki, Aston, and the rest of the Earth-based Tekkadan members, they’re smack dab in the kind of warfare they are not familiar with. It turns out I was wrong last week when I said the bearded man is another name for Kamen Galli-Galli, but the guy who’s now heading Tekkadan’s battle operations, Galan Mossa.

Otaku Evolution Episode 76 - Paranoia Agent

Body: 

In my spooky Halloween episode for 2016 (a very frightening year!), I don't go for ghouls and ghosts, nor zombies and witches, but a monster borne from the very human mind and the cultural around us! But what does this say about my own demons? It's about time Satoshi Kon got his due on my show as I take a look at Paranoia Agent!

Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans Season 2 Episode 04 – Martian Half-Metal Futures

Body: 

Ah, it is nice to finally have something to talk about now. By the skin of their teeth, Tekkadan captures the leader of the Dawn Horizon Corps, and routs the attempt by the WDoJ/Arianrhod from stealing their ‘kill’ so to speak. This is a sound victory on Tekkadan’s part, since the inclusion of a third party in the previous episode’s affairs heightens the tension. This is most manifest in Julieta, who not only gives Mika a workout in terms of combat skills, but also comes off (in my mind), as a female version of him: eccentric to a fault, and fiercely loyal to her superior like Mika is to Orga. Whether this will change any dynamic between him, Kudelia, and Atra in the case he ever meets her is still up in the air, but I cannot help but see some similarities to them based on their disposition in combat.

Otaku Evolution Episode 75 - JoJo's Bizarre Adventure OVA (2000)

Body: 

In this episode of my barely-watched anime review video series, I take a look at the 2000 OVA of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, which adapts Part III of the larger metaseries, Stardust Crusaders. Though oddly enough, only the first half, since the second half was animated in 1993. Yeah, so I'm reviewing in chronological order of the storyline, rather than the production order here. But what are these flashes of memories I'm getting about my first meeting with Pen Pen? Something tells me there's a need for a TO BE CONTINUED...
