E133 – Masters of the Universe



Nobody has the power this time around.

He-Man and pals accidentally arrive on earth, and everyone assumes their inter-dimensional transporter is a Japanese synthesizer. Meanwhile, Michael is disappointed by poor adaptational changes, Peter loves Skeletor’s gold armor, and both hosts try to figure out what happened to the residents of the California town where all the action takes place.

Also included: attempting to describe new characters, the saga of Lubic, maximum chaos in minimum space

Dragon Ball Part 1 will release January 27th


2021 Plans



Just a quick notice regarding our changing release schedule. The important bit is that we’ll be moving to a bi-weekly (as in once every two weeks) release schedule to give ourselves a little more breathing room when it comes to recording new episode.

Masters of the Universe will release January 13


E132 – Record of Lodoss War Conclusion



A Cursed Island no longer, just a cursed show.

Spark’s journey reaches its conclusion, while our attention is constantly diverted to other characters reacting to the things Spark is actually dealing with. Meanwhile, Michael rants about the robotic interactions between the characters, Peter finds another in the few shows he unequivocally dislikes, and both hosts breathe a sigh of relief that it’s finally over.

Also included: animatronic flirting, overprotective dad villains, Star Wars: A New Hope as the adventures of Obi-Wan Kenobi

Masters of the Universe New Year’s Special will release January 13th


MS75 – Record of Lodoss War OVA



Surprising nobody, the OVA that actually starts at the beginning of the story is much better than the TV series where every bit of information is delivered through expository flashbacks.

MS74 – Macross Plus: Movie Edition



It’s small-scale emotional drama with a backdrop of science fiction, and a holographic pop star to boot! What else can you expect from Macross?
