Frieza’s BACK, and Michael’s childhood dreams are shattered once again.

MS26 – Robotech 2: The Sentinels



The sequel to Robotech was as ill-fated as bridge crew of the SDF Macross…

Hopefully you remember they all died offscreen. This week, we watch the cobbled-together sequel to the cobbled-together show Robotech, and it sure is… something.

Jack’s journey continues, before taking a long, long hiatus.

Some of Jack’s adversaries themselves have noble intentions, but that doesn’t matter much to the eponymous samurai. Meanwhile, Michael compares Jack to Batman, Peter is irritated by a baby, and both hosts agree on a recommendation.

Also included: different perspectives on villains, a fulfilled prophecy, and the redemption of the Scotsman.

MS24 – Fist of the North Star



“Hey. These belong to you?”

This week, we watch the incredibly gory, post-apocalyptic crazyfest that is Fist of the North Star (the movie). And Streamline Pictures distributed it, so the voice acting adds to the film’s overall cheesy charm.

We can’t escape the orbit of Carl Macek, can we?
