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.

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.


-My reviews for episodes 21-24 of Orguss.


-Arshad's reviews for episodes 41-48 of Fighbird, which completes the series.


-Brian's reviews for episodes 14-22 of King Gainer.


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.

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 Fighters mecha 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.

02.14.14 - Valentine Frontier by Chris 1:19 P.M.

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.
