Episode 223 – Space Adventure Cobra

Space Adventure Cobra

Out of the blue came a kill-crazy crew, whose motto was pod by the week. It’s time to talk space pirates with Leon Everett, as we watch 1982’s movie adaptation of Buichi Terasawa’s Cobra manga – known as Space Adventure Cobra!

Episode 215 – Macross Plus

Macross Plus

We talk Macross Plus with guests Grace Chan from ChineseIrish and Leon Everett from Focus Fire Nerd. And it turns out to be a more divisive topic than we first thought. Leon put the hours in to give us the answer as to which version Brian and Grace should have watched, but Anthony is happy with Macross Plus however you slice it.

Plus there’s probably a game too. We recorded this and uploaded it ages ago, and I’ve forgotten at this point.

Learn all about studying Korean in Korea with Grace on her Youtube channel ChineseIrish.

Watch Leon and his friends play video games on the Focus Fire Nerd Youtube channel.

Episode 160 – Judge

my name is judge

It’s Halloween and for a change we aren’t talking about a vampire anime. Instead we take a look at the 1991 supernatural law OAV, Judge with guests Niall Flanagan and Leon Everertt. Maybe we should have stuck to the vampires.

On a less spooky note, Ninja Nonsense episode 2 is our Weekly Retro Recap and we play a game of MEGA CITY ONE or MEGA CITY NONE?

Boo!
