Giant Robot Punch-Up in Space

Once upon a time there was a goose that laid golden eggs … 

China and the wider South-East Asian region has their own literal version of that famous goose in the form of The Monkey King, and there are numerous movies, TV shows, books, songs, comics, video games, manga and anime that have found inspiration in classic tales like Journey To The West.  

Now it’s the turn of director Stephen Chow to get in on the Monkey King action with his planned animated TV series that aims to open the the character up to a global audience. 

After that it’s time for the serious business of anime, so Mark girds his loins and ventures once more into his own personal giant robot hell with the first four episode movies of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin. Then it’s Andrew’s turn to show his mettle in the fight against evil as he tackles Season 2 Part 2 of My Hero Academia, and Producer Rob winds things up with some Aztec/Mayan/Incan-inspired fantasy action in Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers.
