AoY Podcast #20 – Takahashi vs. Tomino Round 1 (Heavy Metal L-Gaim & Blue Gender Review)
Also known as: ” Hey Kayro, you hair makes the best beanbag!”
or also: “And there’s sum-sum-sum-ro-ro-robot God…”
We are finally doing another anime marathon of sorts, where for once a month, for the next couple of months (or longer maybe), we will talk about some series/shows from some of the two biggest anime directors out there, Yoshiyuki Tomino vs. Ryouske Takahashi.
We start off with our discussion of Heavy Metal L-Gaim by Tomino, where we compare and contrast between the OVA’s and TV series. We then go right into a Takahashi show from not that long ago called Blue Gender. Some of the discussions include how people can pilot a robot from a KORG machine, total 80’s fashion, subtitle issues, anime wraslin, annoying characters, how something can be almost like Starship Troopers, censorship in a TV series and much more. We also go off topic on things like recent anime start up companies, taking an early look at Funimation, DBZ side talk and other Takahashi shows we will cover down the road. All this and more in this weeks episode.
Side Note: I know I said the words “Takahashi vs. Tomino Month” in the intro, but this is gonna go on longer than that, and I ment to say segment. But, if you know our track record, you probably won’t hold that against us, which is cool. I should just edit it out, but OH WELL!
