Bakacast #280 – Jazz is the Mobile Suits You Don’t Murder

I’m guessing Careless Whisper probably won’t be blasting out of that Gundam’s speakers anytime soon.

We usher in what is technically the first week of the winter season with a mercifully short episode for a change. It’s just under an hour! AMAZING! Since most shows from fall were done and the majority of winter shows hadn’t aired yet, we padded the episode out a bit with reviews of the first two episodes of Yamato 2199 and the first Mobile Suit Gundam: Thunderbolt OVA. Considering all of us on Bakacast are sci-fi nerds, both of those shows being very good made us quite happy. It certainly makes up for KyoAni going from the critically-acclaimed Sound Euphonium to the dreck that is Musaigen no Phantom World.
