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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

MS06 – Zaku II



In this week’s minisode, Michael and Peter discuss the anxiety of showing someone a piece of media you really like, as well as the difficulty of actually recommending shows like Tenchi in Tokyo in real life.

MS05 – Gundam Rock & Media Diets



Apparently Andrew WK made an album of Gundam music for the franchise’s 30th anniversary. This spurs some Andrew WK related memories, and a discussion of our recent media diets.

Here Comes Char AMV:

Next week: Tenchi in Tokyo Part 2


MS04 – ReBoot: The ReBoot Reboot



We’re informed that ReBoot: The Guardian Code has a full trailer, and watching it spurs a discussion of Toonami remakes, shows we’d like to see remade, and wondering aloud why ReBoot was chosen as the recipient of a reboot in the first place.

Thanks to douglas (@pizzaspirit) for bringing the Guardian Code trailer to our attention!
