Update:It seems, Divx stage 6 saw fit to remove The Cockpit. Luckily, a very well seeded torrent of this has been released mere days ago!
Get the torrent from here.
That was a swift recovery from depressing mediocrity!
This week, another Asian tale, round stewardesses and yet another obscure Anime title!
Shootin' The Breeze
Alex rants about the current state of stewardesses and wishes the golden age of the stewardesses, the 60's would make a triumphant return.
Alex suggests this tasteful uniform for all future stewardesses.
Tales from the East (or West)
Any excuse for a gong.
We talk about Alex's wife; Kaori and her 2 hour showers.
I won't spoil this story for you, but when you have to go, you have to go!
"Chase Wang" takes time out of his blooming gay porn career to chat about AX. Best stage name ever.
Life-size Gundam! Finally!
Check out the legendary Danny Choo's blog entry regarding this, here.
Gundam worth half a billion $US per year
Now we know why Bandai always gives Tomino hell with creative control.
Review: The Cockpit
Based on anime diety, Leiji Matsumoto's manga, this series, tackles the personal stories of officers on the Axis side of the war.
This causes Alex to rant about Japan and their belief that they themselves are victims of the war, not agressors.
Well, Mr. Sorokopud, check this out!
Look at the heroic pacific heroes liberating those poor Chinese, and don't they look happy?
Look children, a lovable Japanese savior! Thank you for liberating us, noble savior!
They're here, mama! They're here! Oh joy!
Some ingrates obviously don't appreciate the lovable guiding hand of our pacific overlords!
But seriously, folks. Leiji Matsumoto's work conveys a strong anti-war message, at the expense of historical accuracy. If you can accept this and appreciate the gorgeous animation, as well as the masterful direction from three Anime veterans, you're in for a real treat indeed!

I discuss the prospect of free, legal streaming anime via "Babelgum".
