SOS - Episode 12 - Darkness Before Dawn

Welcome to Episode 12 of Space Opera Satellite, Darkness Before Dawn. This week we are talking about episodes 49-51 of Legend of the Galactic Heroes. We decided to split the final 6 episodes into two parts so that we can give everything it's proper due. The season is rapidly coming to a close and things are getting very exciting but before that we've got proposals, bedridden Reinhards, and space guerrilla warfare! It was a fun show so give it a listen!

Next time we will be talking about episodes 52-54 and our final thoughts on season 2 of Legend of the Galactic Heroes. Send in your questions now about the end of the season!

SOS - Episode 11 - The Two-Headed Serpent

Welcome to Episode 11 of Space Opera Satellite, The Two-Headed Serpent! This week we are discussing episodes 44-48 of Legend of the Galactic Heroes. Once again we are met with a number of exposition heavy episodes as the Alliance has to prepare for war with the invading empire. We've got the conclusion to Julian's Fezzan adventures, Yang's retreat from Iserlohn, and the Two-Headed Serpent formation. As usual it was a good time and we hope you enjoy it!

Next time will be talking about episodes 44-48.

SOS - Episode 10 - Road to Ragnarok

Welcome to Episode 10 of Space Opera Satellite, Road to Ragnarok! This week we are discussing episodes 39-43 of Legend of the Galactic Heroes. This was a very exposition heavy bunch of episodes. We got to follow Julian on his excellent adventure, watch an actual historical documentary about the founding of the Empire and the FPA, and finally see the beginnings of war! It made for some very interesting discussion as we tried to wrap our heads around everything that was happening.

Next time will be talking about episodes 44-48.

SOS - Episode 09 - Kindergarten Coup

Welcome to Episode 09 of Space Opera Satellite! We are here to continue our journey through Legend of the Galactic Heroes. This week we discussed episodes 35 - 38. These were some exposition heavy episodes that were very light on the action. That didn't hurt the discussion though as we continued to analyze just what is developing for our heroes with kidnappings and political intrigue ruling the day.

Next time will be talking about episodes 39-43.

SOS Gaiden - Episode 01 - Crusher Joe

Welcome to the very first episode of Space Opera Satellite Gaiden! Gaiden episodes of SOS are going to focus on movies and OVAs that we can watch easily. It's just another way to experience some Space Opera anime goodness. On this inaugural episode your hosts watched the 1983 movie Crusher Joe directed by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko. It was a visual feast and we had a great time talking about it. Give it a listen and let us know what you think of the movie!

SOS - Episode 08 - Dueling Fortresses

Here is episode 08 of Space Opera Satellite, Dueling Fortresses! We left things in a very interesting but uncertain state and this next batch of episodes, 31-34, sure turned up the heat. There were shady politics, more space ax battles, and fortress vs. fortress warfare. Lots to discuss this week.

Next time will be talking about episodes 35-38.
