It's another anime special on the podcast! This week we tackle the (almost) impenetrable franchises of Gundam and Macross (or Robotech for those familiar with the US iteration of the series). But where to start?! Don't worry listeners we have a crash course for you this episode.
Together we look at the history of both franchises and discuss why they are such enduring examples of space opera.
For those wanting to watch the films discussed below is a list of the ones covered:
Mobile Suit Gundam I
Mobile Suit Gundam II: Soldiers of Sorrow
Mobile Suit Gundam III: Encounters in Space
Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Do You Remember Love?
