I am once again joined by Richard of the Macross Speakerpodcast to discuss Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam! This seminal anime classic has gotten equal amounts of praise and derision over the years. We examine what we love about the show, what we hate about it, and also how it relates to previous Yoshiyuki Tomino work, Heavy Metal L-Gaim. Please note that I pulled Gablae and screwed up the recording in the first half of the podcast. I sound much better in the second hour. Spoilers aplenty but this show is more for those who have already seen Zeta Gundam.
Recently I had a pretty cool experience when famed Japanese toy collector Tom Franck (formerly of CoolJapaneseToys.com) was back in town to deal with what remains of his childhood collection. His mom was selling the family home (and in a bit of small world coincidence, we later found out that she sold it to a friend of CDX alum Mason Fitch!) and he still had lots of stuff stored away that he had to go through and find a new home for, since transporting it all back California wasn't really an option.
