The Gundam Re:0096 show is just a TV version of the Gundam Unicorn OVA series. It's basically this year's Ghost in the Shell AAA. I feel like you shouldn't jump into this series since it does reference back to previous Universal Century Gundam shows.

I been replaying the first Ace Attorney game and pretty sure that the anime is going to be based on the first three games. The first episode PV is the first case in the game. The bird is either from the second or third game but I'm leaning towards the second game. Andrew, I'm a bit surprised you didn't like the gameplay even though it's mostly like a visual novel. I guess not enough cute girls in it to ignore the gameplay issue.

Sailor Pluto was the guardian of time.

The Magi Sinbad series is a prequel as well.

Hey! I think you got Chris's fabricated gamer persona mixed with mine. I play vary non moe games too. Even if I do import risqué moe crap, I still fit in gritty shooters too. :p

Thanks for the Gundam info.

I thought we said that? The whole talk about him being OP and this being before he became OP?

I knew you'd knock it out of the park. Based on your knowledge, do you think it will require much knowledge to enjoy despite not watching the ones prior to it in the timeline?

Thanks Kocurek.

This seems like its gonna be a great season!
Looks like there's gonna be a ton of Shounen Anime so I'm realy excited :D
Especially for the goofy seriousness of JoJo's that they somehow pull off xD

I've only read the first 2 volumes of My Hero Academia but it was really good.
The only thing One punch man and it have in common is the superhero aspect, so its really weird when people clump them up together (Not saying you guys did. just people in general :3)

Most Shounen start out extremely slow and are usually pretty bad at the beginning but My Hero Academia didn't take long for me to start really enjoying the story and characters.
The main character is really awesome as well! But that might not mean much since it doesn't take much for me to like characters xD

Great podcast episode though! Its nice to know which ones you guys are looking forward to so I can watch them ASAP when they come out :D

Thanks Kocurek.

This is extremely difficult question that puts me in uncomfortable position.Since I finished the OVA I'm asking this myself.
I personally watched six episodes of Unicorn before touching any other UC instalment.To understand core narrative it doesn't require massive amount of knowledge.The problem is that such experience isn't full.I would say that the more You know the bigger is Your enjoyment.
Final decision belongs to You.If you really want to watch it,then go for it because if You have any problems with understanding I'm always happy to talk about Gundam.But on the other hand I wouldn't blame You if You will decide to leave Unicorn as cherry on top of Universal Century cake.

I did start playing Turnabout Goodbyes but I stop for a bit after the first trial session. I played through the next part yesterday and saw the bird. So I was wrong about that. I think my recollection of the case being the best in the first game which I thought the bird being there was a bit silly. I would totally see the bird in some of the other cases but not that one.

For the Magi Sinbad clarification, just saying spinoff can mean anything but usually it's running next to or a sequel of the main series. It's definitely a prequel. I been reading the manga of it and it's definitely builds up the world of Magi and more like the first part of the main series.

So I really think you just need Gundam 0079, Zeta Gundam, and Char's Counterattack for Unicorn especially Zeta Gundam since it has one of the main characters in it.

I got a bit of a Druarara!! vibe from the Bungou Stray Dogs PV as well. Kuma Miko looks cute.
