01.01.20 - Hello 2020 by Chris 11:35 A.M.

MAHQ kicks off 2020 with Arshad's reviews for episodes 2-4 of Full Metal Panic: Invisible Victory.


12.31.19 - Goodbye 2019 by Chris 10:39 A.M.

Well, it turns out there was one last update for 2019. This time, Brian has reviews for episodes 18-25 of Xabungle, which brings the series to the halfway mark.


12.30.19 - Tears in rain by Chris 5:25 P.M.

In what is likely the final update of the year, my reviews for Gundam Build Divers wrap up today with episodes episodes 22-25. With this series out of the way, I'll be moving on to catch up on RE:Rise during its hiatus.


In other news, the SF world is dimmer today with the loss of designer Syd Mead, who has died at age 86. Mead worked on numerous movie projects and is perhaps best known for his genre-defining work in Blade Runner. In this corner of fandom, he is of course known for contributing multiple designs to Turn A Gundam, which celebrated its 20th anniversary earlier this year. Mead's work was legendary, and it's probably impossible to quantify how many writers, directors, designers, animators, comic artists and game developers have all been influenced by him. His presence will be missed.

This update brings Macross into the fold of Burke's expanded profiles with coverage for every mecha and vehicle in Macross Zero. More profiles will follow in the future, but this project is essentially a labor of love that will move at a slower pace. For more in depth Macross mechanical information, I would direct visitors to the Macross Compendium, the Macross Mecha Manual or the discussions on the Macross World forums.

04.01.19 - Time and time again by Chris 10:25 P.M.

That time of year has come again, and it means that today marks 19 years since MAHQ debuted as FAHQ. I don't have any grand statement to make this year or an ambitious content plan to lay out. All I have, on behalf of myself and Dale, is to express my sincere thanks to everyone who has helped make MAHQ what it is, whether it's visitors, contributors, forum members or podcast listeners. It is the support of these many people that keeps pushing us on year after year. So again, thank you.


It has been a tradition in the past to have a large update to mark the occasion. I don't have anything so large this year, but Brian has submitted new reviews for episodes 9-17 of Xabungle.


On a separate note, regular visitors are likely aware that Mecha Talk has been down for several days. This is due to a hosting issue, and while the forum will be migrating to a new host, it will likely take several more days. In the meantime, check out Twitter account for more updates.


03.26.19 - A New Power by Chris 8:35 P.M.

Today's update focuses on Gundam Build Divers with reviews for episodes 13-15.


03.05.19 - Enter the blue gale by Chris 7:45 A.M.

Over the course of MAHQ's existence, Brian and I have chronicled Gundam creator Yoshiyuki Tomino's anime works ranging from 1977-2014. Now, one of the remaining gaps is filled as Brian kicks off our Xabungle coverage with reviews for episodes 1-8. I don't know that we'll ever cover Daitarn 3 or anything older than Zambot 3, so this will probably be the extent of our exploration of the Tomino backlog.


01.20.19 - Breaking GBN by Chris 4:39 P.M.

Today I continue the work to catch up Gundam Build Divers with reviews for episodes 8-12.


01.03.19 - Invisible by Chris 7:08 A.M.
