MS18 – Pretty Sammy



This week, we take a trip down memory lane (sort of) and revisit the cast of Tenchi in yet another canonically distinct show with the same characters and animation style.

Oh, and it features some decent jokes about magical girls, as well.

Next week: Sailor Moon R: The Movie


MS16 – Space Runaway Ideon



Three trucks merge into a super robot that causes horrifying destruction. Guess that’s what happens when Tomino directs a super robot show.

This week in Tomino month, the Buff Clan and the inhabitants of planet Solo begin fighting a meaningless war based on a misunderstanding, and Michael and Peter try to figure it out.

Next week: Mobile Suit Gundam Conclusion


MS15 – Aura Battler Dunbine



When giant robots and fantasy collide, we apparently end up with a guy driving a motorcycle behind a bunch of unicorn-mounted cavalry.

This week in Tomino month, we take a look at Aura Battler Dunbine, an odd show that takes place below the surface of the earth.

Next week: Mobile Suit Gundam Part 3


MS14 – Fang of the Sun Dougram



Fang of the Sun Dougram, a show about a kid who learns how to pilot a giant robot and uses it to fight relatively realistic battles against the sinister Earth Federation. Sound familiar?

This week, Michael and Peter discuss a descendant of Mobile Suit Gundam, and another example of the Real Robot Genre.

Next week: Mobile Suit Gundam Part 2


MS13 – Dragon Ball Heroes



It’s Super Saiyan 4 Goku vs. Super Saiyan Blue Goku in a battle on the Prison Planet (that lasts about a minute of screen time)!

In a truly mini Minisode, Michael and Peter talk about Dragon Ball Heroes, and the upcoming Dragon Ball Super movie.

Next week: Mobile Suit Gundam Part 1


MS12 – Voltus V



Five teenagers. Five vehicles. One giant robot. Stop me if you’ve heard this one.

This week, we watched a terribly produced compilation of Voltes V made for American audiences. Why didn’t Toonami show more super robot stuff?

Next week: The Intruder


MS11 – Beast Machines



Nothing says “writing a direct sequel” like being forbidden from watching the original show.

This week, Michael and Peter discuss the totally atonal sequel to Beast Wars.

NOTE: The three-part “Revelations” episodes Michael was referring to are actually episodes 7-9, rather than episodes 6-8 as claimed.

Next week: G-Force: Guardians of Space.


MS10 – ReBoot: The Guardian Code



What have we done?

This week, Michael and Peter watch the entirety of ReBoot: The Guardian Code, the show that killed everyone’s childhood dog.

For the record, the four teens are Austin, Trey, Tamra, and Parker, while their “gamer names” are Vector, D-Frag, Enigma, and Googz (respectively).

Next week: Beast Wars Part 4, covering season 3.


MS09 – Beast Wars II: Super Lifeform Transformers



This week, Michael and Peter discuss the bizarre anime Beast Wars interquel, Beast Wars II: Super Lifeform Transformers. It’s something of a wild ride. Also, Michael brings back the Yuli-Grayson Scale of Kid Sidekick Effectiveness.
