Does it Really Work: In-Depth GaoGaiGar Analysis Part 1: The Basics and the Gutsy Galaxy Guard.

And…. We’re back! Clawshrimpy here getting back into the review game with a new review format, I’ve decided to re-focus into posititive reviews ala MovieBob, with this multi-part analysis of GaoGaiGar. Thiss will be multi-part, so I hope you’ll stick aroud and watch thte rest as they come.

In this first part, we discuss the basic of what GaoGaiGar is, and discuss the characters in 3G and the Strongest Brave Robo Corps, (except Mamoru, who is going to be the dedicated topic of Part 2.)

Here it is:

GaoGaiGar Retospective Opinionated guide: Episodes 4-6

Hi there, this is Clawshrimpy of Applied Phlebotinum back from a VERY long hiatus, mostly relating to Real Life and some orginizational stuff, along with a technical snags involving my camera (Why I’ve switched back to voice-only) and something I’ll bring up when I upload the next SEED Destiny video. Sorry for the wait.

Today we’re looking at GaoGaiGar episodes 4-6, Mamoru now has a big responsibility, but can he handle it? He also proposes a preventionary plan but is warned of the danger, but a big red robot stands up for him. Also, a tanker Zonder made from an absorbed captain who hates technology, and also the introduction of two Artificial Intelligences learning about teamwork. Fun times!

GaoGaiGar Retrospective: TV 1-3

Clawshrimpy of the Applied Phlebotinum blog here with a opinionated analysis of the first 3 epsidoes of GaoGaiGar! Apologies for the delay and the length but I am very…. analytical about this show. In these episodes Pasder and his Zonderians want to take over the earth turning all of humanity into Zonders but the brave men of women of 3G stand in their way along with “The World’s Strongest Cyborg” Guy. Also a grade-school boy finds he has the power to turn the cores of the Zonders back into humans but what does that mean for him?

(The original video for this review was the only casualty from the move from, as a compromise, you can find a Soundcloud of some of the commentary here:

announcement v-log: delays and schedule changes.

Just a quick vlog explaining the delays on the first GaoGaiGar Video (it’s currently processing now.)  and some changes such as the addition of a webcam and some schedule changes so I can vary up the things I’m reviewing at once.



while the GaoGaiGar review will continue, I am also starting the long awaited SEED Destiny review and am looking to bringing in some regular “tokusatsu” content (Kamen Rider, Super Sentai) as well. The release schedule will look like this:  Super Robot opinionated guide slot (Currently GaoGaiGar)—–> Real Robot opinionated Guide (to be the long-awaited SEED Destiny review.) ——> Tokusatsu content slot 1——->Toku slot 2——>Back to Super Robot slot.

please note this is subject to change and I will also be making “in-betweens” such as Sortie Breaks or other small webcam topics and the like.
