If you can't tell by the opening photo, fuck this kit.
These final few episodes go out as you would expect them to if you’ve been paying attention to how I’ve been writing these. I’ll just laundry list some key points, make an additional comment, and get to the real meat of this article: looking back at the entire series and what happens moments after the crux of the finale.
Here we go:
We’re getting somewhere here. Going to a place where all series have gone before, the continued build up to series finale fraught with intensity and uncertainty.
Now here’s an entry to the Profiling section of your brain: White men in white collared shirts wearing suspenders and speaking in Irish brogue. I suggest placing it a bit higher over "Bearded Brown Men in robes."
Of course the people most critical of the English-accented Ishtar would sound like Irishmen. Of course.
Of the two Master Grade Kampfers in my collection, one goes back at least 15 years and was one of my first Gunpla kits. For 5 years of that life it’s been sitting in a box with its partner, partially disassembled and awaiting one of several different paint jobs I’ve been thinking of over the years. Having not painted a kit in a while I figured it best to dust the kit off and kill two birds with one stone, the second taking an opportunity to test out Vonschlippe's hairspray chipping tutorial for the first time.
It's the big 1-0-0 here on Otaku Evolution, and I wanted to celebrate by reviewing one of my favorite anime movies... that's been talked about to death by everyone else already! Don't be too concerned, though, I'm certain there's some insight in my observations and reactions, and if not, you can at least be entertained by the bookend material! I spent a couple of weeks on that, so give it a shot.
Here's to 100 more! (Hopefully people will actually contribute to my Patreon before that.)

It seems popular foreign television doesn’t make its way to Ishtar much these days, for Des seems to have only heard OF Get Smart, but has never watched it. Cute cultural gags which are funny in and of itself without one knowing the existence of Get Smart, goes a long way.
So this week is where Noelle gets to hang out with Jack and Rowe again after the events of Episode 7. To the show’s credit, it does not waste any time with having to set up the situation where Noelle escapes her bodyguard’s watch. Right off the opening, Claire has already replaced Noelle, who is supposed to be at Ishtar’s first baseball game. So what wacky adventures do those three have now that the princess-in-waiting’s on the prowl?
It's time to finish the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure OVAs with the one made before the first part of the story! Y-yeah, that's a thing. 1993's OVA picks up where 2000's left off, so I guess they wanted to get to the more interesting portion of the story first when they made this. I dunno, folks, I'd say the giant orangutan whose Stand power was a whole ship and the guy who hopped into reflections was pretty damn interesting already. But this part has Dargy... I mean, Dooley. No, that isn't it. What's his name again? Doggie? Well, it does have A doggie, at least.
