Anime World Order Show # 206 – We Must KILL Locke the Superman!

We totally missed December entirely because we couldn’t think of a suitable Christmas title, but with this new year Daryl elects to review the anime adventures of Locke the Superman.

Introduction (0:00 – 32:06)
Just because we missed a month of the podcast doesn’t mean we didn’t watch a bunch of things and give our thoughts on them. Daryl wrote a bunch of articles for Otaku USA, Gerald went to the movies a few times (for now we’ll stick to the Fathom Events theatrical showing of Macross Plus), and Clarissa watched several of the currently airing series. Also, all of us found ourselves interested in the recent happenings of the Italian Parliament!

The holiday sales may be over, and we certainly bought a bunch of stuff there, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t new deals worth checking out! This week it’s 30% off titles from Denpa and Udon, so get your orders in for Kaiji, The Men Who Created Gundam, and the (currently out of stock, but not out of print) Rose of Versailles. Worry not, for if you order an out of stock item, Right Stuf will honor the sale price once it arrives and your credit card will not be charged until the order actually ships out.

Review: Locke the Superman (34:50 – 1:49:00)
Daryl weighs in on the various animated installments for one of the most enduring characters in Japanese comics and animation: Locke the Superman. The main focus is on the 1984 theatrical film, since as of this recording that is the only episode legally available in the US as you can watch it streaming on HiDive or purchase it on Blu-Ray. We also talk about the OVAs: Lord Leon, New World Command, and Mirror Ring.

As Halloween approaches and a new anime season begins, we offer some (very preliminary) thoughts on what we’ve seen so far, and Gerald reviews the sci-fi horror OVA Lily C.A.T., best known for being a thing that aired on the Sci-Fi Channel back when it was spelled that way.

This episode isn’t yet available on RSS. The file is there, this link is there, but Feedburner won’t process the enclosure. This may be a Google issue, but who at Google is even looking at Feedburner? UPDATE: we think it’s fixed now?

Introduction (0:00 – 41:40)
This episode came out relatively soon after the previous, so in lieu of emails we talk about our initial impressions of the current anime season. Guaranteed to make someone mad because we made an unfair snap judgment about a thing. That is where YOUR comments come in!

The Dirty Pair TV English Dub Kickstarter has succeeded, but there are only THREE DAYS remaining and TWO stretch goals remain! Back now to make sure those remaining extras get on there, because those will affect the regular retail edition as well.
