Last year, I ended my Mecha March session with the first season of Fullmetal Panic. With this post, I am now solidifying the tradition where I talk about one segment of this wonderful franchise in some capacity with The Second Raid. That means, despite the fact that Fumoffu doesn’t have any mecha in it, it’s … More (Mecha March 2019) Fullmetal Panic: The Second Raid – A Chapter where everyone finds themselves again.
I am still a complete noob at building Gunpla, but it is a hobby that I am glad I found. I have gone past the level of high-grade model kits yet, because those are still challenging for me. The instructions are incredibly vague sometimes and require a lot of study on how one part is … More (Mecha March 2019) Gunpla and Building The RX-O
I wasn’t sure if I was going to get this post out this week, because flying to Kansas City and back in a 48 hour period for job interview purposes may have happened at the beginning of the week, but really tired me out for the rest of it. I guess that’s why a lot … More Seasonal Anime Watches: 3/25/18
Show of hands, how many people have heard of something called Robotech? What about actually watching it? I guess I don’t have a way to measure who is raising their hand for what because this is a blog, but I am going to assume that some of you reading this have raised your hand. To … More (Mecha March 2019) Genesis Climber Mospeada: A Weird Biker Gangs Road Trip Through Alien Territory
When people think about mecha shows, I have a feeling that people usually focused on older shows. You know, shows that came out either over ten years ago like Code Geass and Gurren Lagann or even the old stand ins like Macross, Gundam, and who knows what else. Here is the truth, mecha series are … More (Mecha March 2019) Five Recent Mecha Shows Worth Checking Out
Most shows have been good this week, but I really exhausted from shows that repeat a note or two without taking it in any new direction. I know why Promised Neverland is doing that, so it gets a pass and everything. Kaguya-sama on the hand has had potential, but has reverted to me not caring … More Weekly Seasonal Watches: 3/18/19
Rooster Teeth has the most unique history of animation production. I can’t tell you all of it, because I only know that before RWBY happened, that Red vs Blue existed. Between that and RWBY, I know nothing. As controversial and questionable as RWBY is, but their level of animation quality grew exceptionally well. That leads … More (Mecha March 2019) Gen:Lock – Rooster Teeth’s Mecha Show
You remember when Saturday morning cartoons where a thing? (Can you believe I said that?) I am not just talking about shows like Looney Tunes and other shows related to them. No, I am talking about the more advanced episodic adventure shows. Shows where kids went on adventures to exotic locations they wouldn’t be able … More (Mecha March 2019) Giant Gorg: A Fun Saturday Morning Adventure Show
As everyone can guess from the content being produced for this month and the name of this blog, you may get the impression that I love mecha series. And yes, yes I do. I love everything about giant, humanoid robots. I love seeing the angsty pilots learning how to cope with themselves and their situations … More (Mecha March 2019) Mecha ARE the Rule of Cool and that is alright with me.
This past week had a very mixed set of episodes. Some were interesting, but others I am wonder why they are doing what they are doing or even why can’t they be consistent. My week was pretty good though. I’ve gotten farther on the report I’ve been working on and I’ve got an onsite interview … More Weekly Seasonal Watches: 3/11/18
