This month’s episode is another short ReView! What is a “ReView” episode, you might ask? Well, it’s my highly-clever (ok not really) name for episodes where I go back and revisit an older title I haven’t seen in a long time, and see if what I remember (and what my opinions on it) are still the same now that some time’s gone by. This month, I’m saying goodbye to Summer with a short OVA that features plenty of your typical Summery things in anime: pools, swimming, festivals, yukata...and giant alien monsters?? Yup, we’re revisiting a lesser-remembered Pioneer anime that never became a hit: Hyper Doll! Listen to find out why this 2-episode OVA had me going on a wild goose chase searching for a Japanese 80s variety show!
