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.

If you’d like to submit a topic for discussion, a letter, a memory you have of Toonami, or a bizarre show for us to make fun of, you can contact us at hyperspacebroadcastspod@gmail.com, or find us on Twitter @HBpod and Facebook at Facebook.com/HBpod. We look forward to hearing from you!

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.

E70 – Mobile Suit Gundam Part 1



Only Gundam can save us!

White Base, a ship full of orphans and refugees, begins its journey to Federation headquarters at Jaburo, fighting off vicious attacks by the Zeon forces. Meanwhile, Michael admits his bias in favor of Gundam, Peter questions how landmarks like the Grand Canyon ended up with slightly different names, and both hosts reveal that they have partly-assembled Gundam model kits on their desks.

Yeah, we’re dorks.

Also included: Tomino hates episode 15, Ramba Ral: very old man, and corporal punishment

Mobile Suit Gundam Part 2 will release on August 1st
