Show Notes

Today’s episode is a bit different than usual, as we’ve thrown out the usual review episode format and in its place have a special bonus episode featuring guest and friend of the show TheSubtleDoctor.  You can find Doc’s writing at The Fandom Post and the excellent Wave Motion Cannon; or, you can hear him as one of the hosts on the awesome Warui Deshou Podcast — if you haven’t yet checked any of those fine things out, get on it!  So, join us for a mostly thoughtless and ill-informed discussion on a variety  topics, such as our thoughts on fanservice, Gundam, Gelato, the latest news, and just what the heck is anime anyways!?

BONUS EPISODE – Gundam Thunderbolt: Hope, Despair, Sakuga

tbolt

In what can only be described as the most self-indulgent thing I’ve ever done, I have created this audio essay on Gundam Thunderbolt, the 2015-16 ONA from Sunrise.  There are roughly three sections: (1) the thing Thunderbolt does best (2) the unforgivable things it does (3) I tie my criticisms of the deification of narrow, empirical, Sakuga-based analysis of anime to how that method cannot speak to what is wrong with this ONA.

Special thanks to Tamerlane and Josh Dunham for inspiration.
