Anime World Order Show # 179 – Another Decade in Review Commences

We’ve been around for so long that it’s time for ANOTHER decade in review. How many years do you think we’ll manage to get through this episode now that we have an entire decade of accumulated experience built up, anyway?

Introduction (0:00 – 25:00)
Before we turn the clock back to ten years in the past, we answer an email that requires us to go 25 years back because in the wake of our review of Macross II -Lovers Again- our thoughts are requested regarding Macross 7. That Shoji Kawamori, he built this sequel; he built this sequel on rock and roll.

Promo: Right Stuf Anime (25:00 – 28:54)
The Media Blasters release of Osamu Tezuka’s Phoenix – Perfect Collection on Blu-Ray was supposed to be on 9/17, but I never got a shipping notification and it was suddenly listed as out of stock everywhere. When I inquired about this, Right Stuf actually called up Media Blasters to find out that the street date was pushed back to 10/8 and updated their site while notifying everyone who ordered it accordingly. Step up your game to this level already, Jeff Bezos!

The DECADE IN REVIEW~!: And So It Begins (28:54 – 1:52:55)
The rules are simple (AND YET REPEATEDLY BROKEN): for each year, each person picks one title they deemed noteworthy of mention and discusses it briefly, taking turns until all titles for a year are covered. Then move on to the next year. Who will break the rules first? How many years will we get through in this episode? And what wil conclude first? Our decade in review, or the decade itself?
