Here we are, the penultimate episode of Daitarn 3. We get a little bit of space travel, a little bit of weird science, a little bit of sidekick backstory and a shiny new finisher. Next episode everything comes to its explosive conclusion. Enjoy

I know you get asked this everytime, including myself, but when can we expect Layzner? You really seem to have neglected it… I have no right to complain, but like getting more than 10 episodes and not a single episode of Layzner…
I disagree with you on Gaogaigar and Mazinkaiser. Gaogaigar is one of the Braves series that spanned the 90s and it is gleefully a toy commercial, but I’ll admit it really gets good around episode 30. Mazinkaiser is aimed at the people who like Mazinger, it’s short and sweet robot fun. Remember there were a lot of rather bad old mecha shows that the nostalgia filter filters out.
Evangelion is a dark take on super robots with psychobabble and Judeo-christian mythology. I think it’s overhyped but once you’ve seen a few mecha shows it starts to get creepy. The whole thing was supposedly planned as a Springtime for Hitler type thing though.
The Mazinkaiser OVA did suffer badly from time compression and the fact it was remaking Mazinger vs Great General of Darkness (which we have subbed) with even more screwy continuity.
Also Evangelion and Gaogaigar are both from 1996/1997, they’re not that new. If you like old school super robots, you’d probably like Gaogaigar, don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.
