    Not commuting this often to the office these days or I'd grab a shot of my stereo playing it too. ;) Glad to see it out. Keep it up guys. :)

    Hello, I watched the original Macross series on Amazon after hearing you guys talk about it. I remember watching this on broadcast TV when it was called Robotech. Are there any other series you guys recommend that are in the a similar series like Macross? I watch some Gundam series on their YouTube so I know about those.

    We're preparing to record shortly and we'll talk about it, and this is probably a better question for Andy, but I liked Eureka Seven and Aquarion. I don't know how similar they are, but they're mech animes.

    Well, there are a few Macross sequels. I can't personally vouch for all of them, as I've only seen Macross Delta but they seem well regarded. Dunno how available they are too, outside the less scrupulous sides of the net, since I think there are some rights ownership issues.

    If you want similar in terms of giant robot shows, there are tons to chose from. Obviously Gundam and the ones Jason mentioned.

    There are a few shows that add in the music elements like Macross too that I can think of. Symphogear comes to mind, though that show has power armor rather than full on mechs. AKB0048 also combines singing and some mech combat. It's very J-pop though (it's based on the popular AKB48 group) so yeah.

    Oh, and Evangelion, that's a popular one. Can't believe I forgot to mention it.

    I have seen Evangelion. Thank you both for recommendations. I will start looking into these. Also the podcast is great, keep up the great work.
