Double-Barreled Hisui Podcasts

Since I recently made guest appearances on two podcasts, I figured I would combine them into one post.

First of all, I finished up talking to Patz about Martian Successor Nadesico on the Cockpit podcast. In Part B, we talk about a lot of the material that came after the TV series including the Gekiganger III OVA, the games, and the somewhat infamous Prince of Darkness movie. It is quite a heaven and hell punch as some of the additional material is wonderful and other just leaves you greatly disappointed. Listen to find out what we love and what left us cold.

I also make a brief cameo on the last episode of the Ninja Consultant podcast were a few members of the NYCC crew throw in their comments on the convention. Dave Cabrera, Patz, my roommate, and I give our highs and lows of the convention as we are winding down on the third day.

Ichi, ni, san, shi, ni, ni, san, shi!

Patz and I look at the classic mecha show Martian Successor Nadesico on his podcast the Cockpit. The series is one part comedic parody of all things sci-fi, one part loving homage to anything that would be in a Super Robot Wars game, and one part serious mecha drama. While the show has never been king of the roost it has always had a unique place in mecha fandom. Now that Nozomi Entertainment recently license rescued Nadesico it is a great time to not only examine what makes this show special but what the RightStuf has added to this release of the show.

In Part One we look at just the TV series. Part Two (which will hopefully come out soon) will examine the Gekigangar 3 OVA, The Prince of Darkness Movie, and briefly touch upon some of the oddity with the games and the ultimate fate of the series.
