The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - Ep 27

iTunes & Stitcher subscribers! Be sure to go to the blog to read the description easier & check out links for this episode!

Aim For The Top! (most commonly known simply as Gunbuster), has been a fan favorite almost since it's original release in 1988. In this episode, I'm joined by Ashe Blitzen and Tom Aznable to unpack the many, many layers at play in this series. Listen as we discuss robot push-ups, shoujo sports anime references, and how Gainax created one of the most sincere, loving tributes to everything they loved about anime in just a 6 episode OAV in this special, extra-long episode!
