Yeah, so, ah, this is Gundam AGE. It's a show, about Gundam. At least it looks that way, at times. The look of this new Gundam is the biggest departure from Gundam's look since G Gundam, maybe? That doesn't even begin to properly describe what is so non-Gundam about this trailer.

Less panty shots, more of this!

In less than 30 seconds, We Without Wings- under the Innocent Sky went from being interesting to being the same panty-waving drivel I usually ignore.

I don't recall ever come across an anime that is in such a rush to introduce the harem so quickly as this show does. We open on Haneda, a personality-less, lucky-as-hell, unworthy-of-all-this-attention dude, attacked and fawned over on his way to school, even by a girl who is related to him. Although this looks like some kind of trite nonsense, I will give We Without Wings some credit. The bits where we hear the narrator commenting on the story is fun, and there are a few nice visual flourishes, but it still is not enough to keep my attention. Yes, I denounce this anime even though provides me with quick profiles of all its characters.

If you're a fan of the Blade movies, then keep your eyes on G4TV this summer. G4 has the rights to show all the Marvel/Madhouse collaborations, which are: Iron Man, X-men, Wolverine and Blade. The most information you can get is

Nyapire could either turn out to be the cutest thing to ever be created in Japan, or the deadliest threat to all mankind. Hopefully it gets streamed somewhere so we can all find out!

It's always cool to hear people outside of anime fandom covering the Japanese artform we all love. Check out this clip to hear anime fans and supporters interviewed at a recent Philly anime convention

Mortal Kombat Tournament Edition

This week's episode starts off with Anime (Rin Daughters of Mnemosyne and Mirage of Blaze) before it turns the corner and heads down video game lane with a bit more Mortal Kombat (2011) coverage in the form of PS3 demo play-through reaction.

Let me tell you all a story, a story about Freezing.

I apologize for leaving this show off of my anime preview. I only covered shows which were being offered for free, and through legal outlets. To my surprise, Freezing is available through Funimation screening, thereby making it also available on Hulu.

Freezing is a story set in a time where aliens have invaded the planet and it's up to girls given special abilities to stop them. Our main character is Satellizer El Bridget, the "Untouchable Queen" who has been undefeated in combat. She is one of the many girls who attend a school where these female soldiers are trained.

One if our more special podcast episodes, this week the ladies talk all anime: Xenosaga, Kore wa Zombie desu ka and Monster to be specific.
