In the rousing conclusion to Mecha Month, Bobcat and Burkion get out of the 80s and look at a more recent show, Asura Cryin’. There’s ghosts, demons, Vatican demon hunters, cyborgs, scientists and… aha, there’s the mecha. I knew it was hiding in there somewhere.

In this episode, Bobcat and Burkion get FIRED UP! From anime legend Go Nogai, we get the adventures of three extremely stereotypical teenagers having incredibly formulaic adventures. And yet, formulas are formulas for a reason.

As promised in the review, here are a few links. WARNING: None of the Mad Bull links are safe for work.

Four score and eight years after humanity has gone to the stars, a ragtag crew of Earthlings must fight off a group of colonists gone rogue. Their only hope is a young boy named Amero and his giant robot, the prototype Gundam. How did we treat this venerable series that launched quite possibly the greatest anime franchise ever? As well as we treat anything.

We are so very sorry.

To bring Mecha Month into full swing (after our April Fools debacle… ugh), we start off with Beast King Go Lion or, as it’s called in America, Voltron: Defender of the Universe. We selected this show because we wanted to see what they’d changed.

… how can two shows be so similar, yet so completely different?

You’ll just have to watch to find out.
