On this episode, the club revisits one of main catalysts for anime mecha fandom and plastic model kit builders. That's right, we're going over Mobile Suit Gundam, at least in its movie trilogy format. Celebrating its 40th Anniversary, what better time to watch the one that started it all. Joining the hosts Dennis, Ed, Kate, and Karen, we have returning guest Mike, and brand new special guest Jet! Thanks to these two Gundam experts, we go over the first parts of the One Year War. From Amuro being a pro at reading the manual, figuring out what exactly Char is up to, Garma's fabulous hair, wondering why kids are on a battleship, and swooning over Matilda, let's go back to the year Universal Century 0079. Grab yourself a Gunpla kit, we're in the One Year War.
Many thanks again to our special guests Mike and Jet (@jetspectacular) for being on!

On this episode, Dennis, Kate, Karen, and Garrett go over the 1984 pre-Ghibli founding classic Nausicaa of the Vally of the Wind. We discuss Yupa's all-around badassery, Nausicaa breaking standard princess archetypes, some Captain Planet and Metal Gear Solid references, and the return of special features talk thrown in for good measure.

On this episode, Ed, Kate, Dennis, and Karen have survived SDCC and have gathered to talk about a much more wholesome anime title, Kiki's Delivery Service. While we do take a moment to reflect on the tragedy of the Kyoto Animation fire, there are some places where you can donate to help those affected. Every little bit helps. After that, we discuss problems of growing up at age 13, how not to talk to girls, the kindness of strangers, red earrings on moms, Jiji being best cat, and lots and lots of bloomers.
