I got to listen to this episode over the weekend and I enjoyed every bit of it.
The start with the Straight Talk Express steaming ahead was great.
Although I have to admit I'd been rather optimistic (read: gullible?
) considering Unicorn and the apparent confirmation via Italian blogs, a little interjection of some healthy skeptisism by you guys is more than welcome.
I haven't seen GiaoGaiGAR (what's in a name?), but from the sound of it I may give it a try, considering I liked Gurren Lagann as well.
Your enthousiasm for the show is at least rubbing off on me, so that may be a factor too.
The last segment about mecha anime tropes was enjoyable too and I could see that easily growing to showkiller size on itself, if weren't for your self restraint.
Personally, I'm amused to see the non-lead superaces quite often being of the glasses wearing bishonen variety with a matching 'cool' allure to them.
Apparently glasses not only stand for intellect, but extreme skill and self restraint as well. :p
Another entertaining episode guys, so I look forward to the next!
