IMG_3799

Well, technically it comes out tomorrow, however a few people have gotten their box sets a day early.

Unfortunately the blurays do not have any English subtitles or the infamous dub but (as discussed previously on SpeakerPODcast) the remaster looks gorgeous. Thanks to Renato for the pics!

SpeakerPODcast Ep.16 – MACROSS 30 SPOILERCAST!

1

What exactly are Minmei, Hikaru and Misa doing in the year 2060? Why are Max and Milia shooting at Mylene? (well… haven’t we all wanted to at some point?). But more importantly, is all this canon?

This episode of SpeakerPODcast reaches across time and space to assemble a crack team of gaming experts to discuss the characters, story, and gameplay of MACROSS 30.

(Try taking a shot of something every time the word ‘niche’ is used. It helps everything make sense, we swear!)

Featuring special guests Andrew “Veef” Collie and Kyle ‘falconkpd” Dunn. Special thanks to new forum member Vashzaron for asset assistance.

SpeakerPODcast Ep.15 – Macross 2 REMASTERED!

1

Wondering what the upcoming Macross 2 Bluray remaster is like? The SpeakerPODcast Crew got a sneak peak at a theatrical screening and get together to talk all about it. It’s good, but is it good enough to entice MW members Jason and Cheryl to fly all the way to Japan to attend the event? In a word – YES!

Featuring special guests Jason & Cheryl Cline and a whole bunch of musical shenanigans.

Macross SpeakerPODcast Ep. 14, Part 2 – Renato Remembers Love

1

Renato travels to the Ishinomori Mangattan and tries to remember love – but ends up just feeling cold instead.
In the meantime, after getting some not-so-new-news out of the way, the SpeakerPODcast Crew gasps as Mina questions Basara’s parents and goes behind the scenes with Hidetaka Tenjin on the set of ‘Face Off’, while Save watches a man in a Gundam suit dance to Ishtar. And then runs into Shoji Kawamori. Again.
