MS31 – Gate Keepers



Teenagers in 1969 fight alien Invaders with magic powers and weird mecha. Sounds about right.

E87 – Blue Submarine No. 6



The world is flooded, half-human hybrids are trying to annihilate the last of humanity, and the mad scientist behind it all just wants everyone to get along.

And, of course, every battle is rendered in amazing turn of the century CGI. Meanwhile, Peter confuses the name of the mini-subs, Michael compares elements to G-Saviour, and both hosts try to determine exactly what Verg is actually saying.

Also included: Muppets anime, Cell’s motives, armchair science.

Sailor Moon S Part 1 will release Mar 27th


MS30 – SWAT Kats



This looks like a job for the SWAT Kats!

Two masked vigilantes with access to a jet and a bunch of weird missiles fight to save Megakat city from various vile villains. Also, everyone’s a cat-person.

Also included: the unfortunate death of a random fish, Vegeta’s training tips, PG shit-talking.

MS29 – Toriyama Anime Theater



It’s a grab-bag of Toriyama adaptations!

This week, we cover a variety of animated one-shots adapted from old, generally little-known Toriyama manga. Wonder why it’s little-known…

This week, we cover one of Toriyama’s well-known works before Dragon Ball, the crazy-bonkers Dr. Slump.

Oh, and I totally meant “Bardock” not “Broly” when referring to Dragon Ball Minus.

E84 – Dragon Ball Z Part 12



The androids are unleashed, and they’re too powerful for even Vegeta to handle. Fortunately, they mostly seem interested in taking a road trip.

Dr. Gero’s creations wreak havoc on the roadways, with a little help from Vegeta. Meanwhile, Michael hopes that the relationship between Chi-Chi and Krillin is strained at best, Peter celebrates the departure of Marin, and both hosts dissect a particularly dire episode.

Also included: a consideration of the standards of old TV writing, the convenience of Dragon Ball Z, android road trip.

MS27 – Dragon Ball Super: Broly



GO, BROLY, BROLY, GO!

In the first Dragon Ball movie under the “Super” subheading, Akira Toriyama gives the fans what they want: the canonization of Broly, everybody’s favorite super saiyan, and a nearly hour-long fight sequence. What’s not to love?
