Gundam SEED Destiny 11-15: What the hell happened to Cagali?

Clawshrimpy here, it’s time for another return for the Gundam SEED Destiny opinionated guide! This time we cover Phases 11-15 and watch as the ORB Politicians continue to act more moronic, and Cagali becomes the target of Yuna’s creepy advances…. and also blatant character assassination. So much tot he point that Kira needs to bust up a wedding with Freedom to rescue her. Also includes a brief discussion of the rumors surrounding SEED Destiny’s behind the scenes drama.

GaoGaiGar Retrospective: GGG TV: 7-9

This is Clawshrimpy and I am finally back in my groove as we look at GaoGaiGar episode 7, 8, and 9. 3G has to deal with a Zonder packing EMP, and what that means for Guy, who’s a cyborg, and Hyoryu and Enryu, who are expendable AI robots,

Also, Mamoru’s parents contemplate that pesky north pole lion, the rich kid’s a smug jerk and gets Hana Zonder-napped, and Guy has a trippy dream about why he’s a cyborg.

Also, Geki may or may not be the greatest detective ever.

Sortie Break: The Big O “Enemy is Another Big!” review.

Hey all, Clawshrimpy of Appliedphlebotinum here, back after a nasty flu to get back on schedule with the second Big O Quickie review. Act. 12 Enemy is Another Big!

Roger gets tasked to give a large sum of money to a crazy guy wrapped in bandages, only to end up in a confrontation unlike any of his previous cases as we learn more about the Megadeus and what happened 40 years ago. Yes, It’s MUCH better than it sounds.

Sortie Break: The Big O: Roger The Negotiator review

Hey all, it’s Clawshrimpy back in the video swing, along with a “quickie” video review, something I call Sortie Breaks. Where I analyze a single episode of a mecha/ sci-fi anime as a standalone story and give it a “level of reccomendation” stamp at the end.

Today’s outing is the pilot episode of mecha mystery/noir show The Big O, “Roger The Negotiator” as requested by my good friend Jack. Roger smith is a negotiator and seems to have gotten more than he bargained for, for negotiaing to release of an old wealthy man’s daughter. Also, he has a robot and fights another robot.

If you have in mind a “standalone” episode of a mecha/sci-fi anime that you’d like to see covered in a futre analysis when I do Sortie Breaks, e-mail me at the address below.

GGG/TTGL Rebuttal written article version/followup

Clawshrimpy here again.

some people had asked me to produce a transcript for my audio commentary a post ago, which I can understand folks not wanting to listen to all of it as it’s nearly an hour long, so I’ve decided to do a different take on it in text format. this will not be a straight transcript though, I’ll be changing stuff around. So treat this more as my first written article. Click and read on…

A Rebuttal: GaoGaiGar v.s. Gurren Lagann rant

Hey, this is Clawshrimpy, the next video is coming, but I’d decided to throw up a quick pece of content again, although it’s more of a rant. 😦

As some of you know, I like to occasionally like to get on a soapbox about a lot of varying issues, In this case, a reviewer at a blog called TheRossman had a review of GaoGaiGar which piqued my curiosity, as GGG fans are a bit rare and I always get excited if someone tries to watch the show for the first time (like a few people had thanks to my retrospective series, judging from e-mails.) However it was a very negative review that I felt got a lot wrong abut the show and painted a negative, misleading picture of the show….. while at the same time trying to hold up Gurren Lagann. Big. Mistake. SO I decided to do a commentary and rebuttal of his “review”

the audio file is quite long, 50ish minutes, so I’d recommend doing something else in the background as you listen. Which is why this isn’t a video.

First, here’s a link to this “review” of GaoGaiGar for relevence:

Seriously? The Carpenters are a plot contrivance? what about Spiral Energy then?

(it’s the first review you’ll see on the page.)
