Dear Viz! We Want Toonmakers Sailor Moon!

So, Viz put out a trailer announcing the entire Sailor Moon series, uncut, newly dubbed, and on Blu Ray. It’ll also be on Hulu.

Some people are upset that the original dub won’t be re-released. I’m okay with it. The original dub was kind of a mess and went out of its way to censor things. The only thing I’ll really miss is Molly’s Brooklyn accent. Meanwhile, everyone else will be celebrating Zoicite’s sex change back into a man and the lesbian Sailor Scouts Senshi. No more cousins!

But if I may, there’s one demand I’d like to make, and I hope Viz can comply. I want that Toonmakers pilot of the American Sailor Moon. You remember the one, right? The one with the girl in the wheel chair and the horrible, horrible 90s animation.

This one:

C’mon, Viz! Make it happen!

Episode 149: Denver The Last Dinosaur


Denver The Last Dinosaur

Denver The Last Dinosaur

On today’s panel, we have Ren from Marshmellow Surprise, and we’re talking about Denver the Last Dinosaur. We were pretty horrified by what we observed. Like most things from our childhood, it’s much worse looking back on it as an adult. And Denver is a special case, because we never thought it was a good show to begin with. Imagine our utter horror upon discovering that it’s even worse than we remembered!

Extra long episode this week. We burn out pretty quickly on Denver, so we ramble a bit during the show. And we have our usual spirited after show, where we just talk about random shit. Also, I diss Peter Criss and Ace Frehley some more. LONG LIVE THE ANKH WARRIOR!

Episode 148: Carl Macek and Robotech

Yep, we’re back with a do-over episode. Many months ago, we produced an episode in which we were to talk about Carl Macek. Somehow, we went almost the entire episode without even so much as mentioning him; a fact which perturbed me for some time.

Well, this has been amended. Sometimes revered, other times reviled, Carl Macek left behind an incredible legacy of work and undoubtedly paved the way for the anime market that came after Robotech.

Here we have the somewhat complete story of the amazing career of Carl Macek, though we did skip over some things, such as his time at DiC and Spumco. We talk about his rise with Harmony Gold, the rise and fall of Streamline Pictures, and his time at ADV.

We also tread through the Robotech saga again, this time a bit more in detail. And if any of this is at all confusing, don’t worry. You’re running about average. Truth be told, Robotech shows its seams, and even with additional animated content made to bridge the three separate sagas, it still is an obvious hodgepodge of content.

I still very much recommend ADV’s dub of Macross, IF you can still find it.

Episode 147: Kill la Kill


Kill la Kill

Kill la Kill

Joining the podcast this week is Pablo Praino and Kittyhawk of SGVY.com!

We discuss Kill la Kill, which was still running new episodes at the time of this recording. It’s a show about two girls wearing as little clothing as possible so as to kick as much ass as possible.

Sounds like something right up our alley!

Episode 146: Adventure Time!

Adventure Time!

Today we’re joined by Bea and Kittyhawk, and we’re talking about Adventure Time!

It’s a quirky show full of oddball humor and weird subtext. It’s even got its following among adults.
