This Week: Blue Comet SPT Layzner (Aoki Ryuusei SPT Layzner)
Despite it being from 1985, this was bleeding edge “I dropped everything I was watching to power through this” material in the past seven days.
This is a series whose name I have heard passed around a lot by robot show fans older than I. As a Ryōsuke Takahashi mecha series (he of Armored Troopers VOTOMS fame, among others), it has a sizable interest from that alone. Yet it has always been a show seemingly out of reach to many overseas like myself though, having never been available internationally and previously only incomplete English subtitles existed for the series. My Japanese is nowhere near good enough to parse out a Real Robot storyline on my own.
This time last week, one would not have been able to marathon this television show from start to finish in English. As of last Saturday however, now you can!
