I originally wanted to have the whole series out for our 5th anniversary which I thought was today….then I got dates muddled up and stuff happened behind the scenes, so this is only a triple bill that’s 2 days late. So close enough.
And yes it’s been 5 years, the first posts on the /m/subs forum are from 27 January 2009.
And before anyone in the comments gets overexcited, Layzner has 38 episodes.
Anyways, this three parter is definitly the point where the rug gets pulled out from under the show, because the plot gets jumpy. First up we have an episode that goes all Indiana Jones and revisits the Cuzco subplot…it’s a weird episode. Second, we have what would normally be the beginning of a leadin to the hero’s mecha getting an upgrade due to actions of the villains. Thirdly we get Le Caine/Ru Kain suddenly becoming a shounen manga protagonist and the appearance of every Super Robot Wars J player’s ‘favourite’ boss to deal with.
