Sayla Mass and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day


hisui_icon_4040 I have come to be known as a fan of several characters. Clearly my Saber fandom is my most emblematic object of affection I have gained a reputation as an equally fervent admirer of Sayla Mass. That meant that I was the first person All Geeks Considered thought to invite on to talk about  Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin II – Artesia’s Sorrow. Since this is the most Salya-centric episode there was really no one else would have been as excited to talk about the trails and tribulations of Artesia Som Deikun. We take some time out from talking about Sayla to discuss some Casval and Ramba Ral to balance the podcast a bit.

Now I just need to be on a podcast about Nagi Sanzenin and I can complete my blond girl fandom hat trick.
