It's back to Build Fighters Try with this update, which includes reviews for episodes 13-15. The show's mecha section has also been updated, as has the mecha section for The Origin anime.
01.21.15 - The exodus commences by Chris 1:29 P.M.
The winter broadcast season has started in Japan, so that means a new series is joining the MAHQ roster. Peter returns to cover the Fafner TV sequel Exodus and has reviews for episodes 1-2.
01.07.15 - New Year's explosion by Chris 12:32 P.M.
MAHQ starts off 2015 by ending something. This may sound contradictory, but it's not. Brian has new reviews for episodes 14-23 of Zambot 3, which completes the section. Watch for more from him in the near future.
It's been a long year of updates here with new and completed series, but that all comes to a close with the final update for 2014. That update includes reviews for episodes 10-14 of Gundam Reconguista, which catches up to the broadcast run. There are no broadcasts scheduled this week for Reconguista or Build Fighters, so coverage of the two series will pick up in 2015.
Today is Christmas, but it's also business as usual here for updates. There are new reviews for episodes 8-12 of Build Fighters Try, which finally catches up with the broadcast run. The mecha section has also been updated, as has Reconguista's. The next step is to catch up on that show's reviews.
12.17.14 - Gundam catch up time by Chris 1:59 P.M.
There haven't been any recent updates because other priorities have been taking up my time. However, today I have new stuff in the mecha sections for Reconguista and Build Fighters Try (with custom lineart by Strike Zero). I'm still behind on reviews for both shows, but I plan to catch up on them soon.
11.25.14 - Capital Tower party time by Chris 10:37 P.M.
It's time for another dual Gundam update, starting with a review for episode 9 of Reconguista and new stuff in the mecha section. Next up is a review for episode 7 of Build Fighters Try plus new mecha updates, with custom lineart courtesy of Strike Zero.
11.19.14 - Balloon ships and masked men by Chris 9:49 P.M.
Since the last update focused on Build Fighters, it's time to flip the switch to that other Gundam show with a review for episode 8 of Reconguista in G.
11.15.14 - The U-19 tournament by Chris 12:27 P.M.
There's more catching up in today's update, which features reviews for episodes 5-6 of Build Fighters Try. As always, there are updates for the mecha section, with custom lineart courtesy of Strike Zero.
11.12.14 - Rise of the age of the Kuntala by Chris 11:54 P.M.
Reviews have fallen behind, so today's update plays catch up time by covering episodes 6-7 of Gundam Reconguista.
It's time for more Try Fighters with today's review for Build Fighters Try episode 3. New suits are in the mecha section with custom lineart by Strike Zero. There's also a mecha update for the Reconguista section.
Although two new Gundam shows are currently airing, today's update focuses on a slightly older one. The Gundam AGE section is finally complete with a review of the Memory of Eden OVA.
10.11.14 - The blue comet departs by Chris 2:11 P.M.
This update marks what is probably the last time that SPT Layzner is mentioned on the front page. Reviews are now complete thanks to the addition of the OVA series. The Review Averages page has also been updated to include Layzner's numbers.
10.10.14 - Mobile Toilet Gundam by Chris 11:57 P.M.
Continuing the pattern from the same time last week, there's a new review for episode 3 of Gundam Reconguista, plus minor updates to its mecha section.
It's time for the second of the anime season's Gundam shows to take off. I have a review for episode 1 of Build Fighters Try. The mecha section has been updated and features custom lineart courtesy of Strike Zero. The Gundam Amazing Exia also receives some custom lineart from Dark Duel, while the Abigorbine gets new lineart from Kuruni.
With new series to review, it's time to wrap up some old stuff. Today's update includes reviews for episodes 35-38 of SPT Layzner, which concludes the TV series. Reviews for the OVA series will be coming soon. Keeping with the Layzner theme, the remaining SPT profiles in the mecha section have all been upgraded to Burke's format.
SPT Layzner is almost at its end with this update, including reviews for episodes 31-34.
09.25.14 - Baybull and Beargguy by Chris 10:30 P.M.
It's back to SPT Layzner with today's update, which features reviews for episodes 27-30. There's also an update to the Build Fighters Trymecha section with new profiles.
09.19.14 - Reconquering lineart by Chris 3:53 P.M.
As Gundam Reconguista's October 2 Japanese premiere approaches, more mecha designs are being shown off as is usual for a new series. So with that in mind, there's an update to the show's mecha section.
09.11.14 - From Gaea to Zambot by Chris 11:35 A.M.
Today's update offers a double dose of reviews from Brian. First, the re-reviews of Escaflowne end with coverage of episodes 14-26. Next up, the section for Invincible Superman Zambot 3 debuts with reviews for episodes 1-6.
09.06.14 - Reading up on Grados by Chris 6:57 P.M.
With the majority of SPT Layzner reviewed, it's time to turn attention to the mecha section. The series joins the ranks of Burke's expanded profiles, including the following SPTs:
New details have emerged regarding the sequel series Gundam Build Fighters Try, so that means it's time for updates. New mecha and anime sections have been created ahead of its October premiere. There is also an update for the Reconguistamecha section.
You might have heard the recent news that Orguss has been license rescued by Discotek Media. The series is the focus of today's update, with reviews for episodes 25-28. There are also lineart updates for the Gundam Side Stories section, with credit to balofo.
On March 18, 2010, I posted the review for episode 1 of Gundam Unicorn. That process finally ends with today's reviews for episode 7 and the compilation special episode EX. This makes Unicorn the series with the longest release schedule that I've reviewed, even longer than Macross Zero. The Review Averages page has been upgraded to the new format and updated to reflect several other recent completed series. There's also a new mecha section for UC MSV Kusabi.
Several mecha updates are on tap in today's update. First, there are some minor updates to unit listings for Gundam Unicorn. Next, there are new sections for The Origin anime and the new PS3 game Gundam Side Stories.
It's been a slow month for updates, but expect more in the near future. For today, it's time to catch up on some updates, starting with new profiles for Gundam Unicorn, plus new lineart for Build Fighters, with custom art courtesy of Strike Zero.
It's that time of year again, and MAHQ celebrates another birthday as it turns 14 today. As always, I'd like to thank everyone who contributes to MAHQ on a regular basis, whether it's lineart, reviews or even comments on Mecha Talk or Facebook. This work would be pointless if not for your feedback.
It's traditional for the anniversary update to include a large amount of new content, and today's includes 22 new reviews, including:
-My review for episode 25 of Build Fighters, which completes the series. Its mecha section has also been updated.
Of course, there's still a lot of work to do in 2014, including the last bit of page conversions. I'll be reviewing Gundam Reconguista and the new Macross whenever they start. Once Orguss is done, I'll be moving on to my next review target, Blue Comet SPT Layzner. Stay tuned for much more from MAHQ this year, and thanks for stopping by.
Catch up time continues with today's update, which features reviews for episodes 20-24 of Build Fighters. On the same subject, there's a new mecha section for the manga side story Build Fighters Amazing.
It's been a long time since the last update, mainly since a new job and home construction have prevented me from working on updates. Unfortunately, this means I won't reach the self-imposed goal of completing the conversion by April 1. However, the goal is so close that it'll be wrapped up soon anyway. In the meantime, I've been catching up on the Build Fightersmecha section with new profiles, including custom lineart by Strike Zero.
02.19.14 - The Meat Bun Chronicles by Chris 1:19 P.M.
Conversions have been the name of the game recently, so reviews have fallen behind. That changes in today's update, which includes reviews for episodes 15-19 of Gundam Build Fighters. As usual, there are also mecha updates with custom lineart by Strike Zero.
Today marks are pretty important moment in MAHQ history: with the conversion of Macross Frontier, the entire Mecha section is complete. The section has been updated to reflect new units from the movies, with lineart courtesy of Strike Albion. With the biggest section of MAHQ complete, the end is in sight with conversions, so hopefully this long effort will be wrapped up soon.
Today's update is a mix of both new content and conversions. Macross 7 has been converted, with some new lineart courtesy of Kuruni. Other new lineart for Macross 7 and all previously converted Macross sections is courtesy of Archive Scans.
It's time for the first update of 2014, and that consists of catching up on Build Fighters with reviews for episodes 11-12. If you're wondering what happened to the previous news posts for 2013, they'll be available soon in an updated News Archive.
