Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 473: Cake the Cat (from Fionna and Cake)

GC13 and David discuss Cake the Cat from Adventure Time: Fionna and Cake.

Cake isn’t just in Ooo now, she’s exploring it! And while she may initially get on quite well with the locals, following her instincts leads to some… Less than kind outcomes. Thankfully Fionna arrives in time to save her before anyone can get the bazooka.

Our duo, reunited, disappears at the end of the episode. Oh, it’s going to be a long week, isn’t it?

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 472: Simon Petrikov (from Fionna and Cake)

GC13 and David discuss Simon Petrikov from Adventure Time: Fionna and Cake.

Simon is no longer the Ice King, but that doesn’t mean things are good: he’s not better now that he’s not part of a madness. At least it’s always wonderful to hear a Rebecca Sugar song. And adventuring with Finn isn’t very fun  when you’re not a seasoned adventurer.

With Cake in the land of Ooo though, hopefully Simon’s adventures will land him in a better place. Let’s be honest: his current job sucks.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 471: Fionna Campbell (from Fionna and Cake)

GC13 and David discuss Fionna Campbell from Adventure Time: Fionna and Cake.

In this move to Max Adventure Time has taken some steps they couldn’t have taken on Cartoon Network while remaining fundamentally itself, if you can get over the sadness. Some people are not meant to give bus tours, and others need their own bakery as soon as possible.

It’s not a pleasant first episode, but remember: Fionna and Cake were born from the fanfiction of the Ice King, and he’s not having such a great time right now. Let’s hope everyone finds the magic they need for their life.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 470: Nimona (Part 2)

GC13, Soren, and David continue their discussion of the Netflix movie Nimona.

This is a movie that couldn’t have been made just a decade ago, and even still it almost got lost to history. A theatrical release, once planned, wasn’t even in the cards after its rescue.

It’s a complicated world we find ourselves living in. Fiction can be a mirror to that world, but it can also be an attempt to change it. Keep your eyes, and your mind, open.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 469: Nimona (Part 1)

GC13, Soren, and David discuss the Netflix movie Nimona.

Nimona took a long road to come to fruition, but now that it’s here it’s a wonderful adaptation of a graphic novel collected in 2015. Fantastic characters, beautiful art and transformations, with a kind message too.

There was a lot to say about Nimona, so next week the discussion will continue where we left off!

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 468: The End of the Beginning (from Unicorn: Warriors Eternal)

GC13 and David discuss The End of the Beginning from Unicorn: Warriors Eternal.

Tell me if you’ve heard this before: the heroes all join together into one body to confront evil. At least it goes better for them this time than it did the last… And Anubis is always in style.

With no more episodes announced it’s certainly a cruel tease of an episode title, but it very much encapsulates how the episode end feels. We can only hope there’s more Unicorn: Warriors Eternal to come, otherwise the series barely got to begin before it ended.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 467: A Love’s Last Light (from Unicorn: Warriors Eternal)

GC13 and David discuss A Love’s Last Light from Unicorn: Warriors Eternal.

Things are getting heavy. You thought Unicorn was just about stopping a little monster rampage every couple hundred years? Well, what Unicorn fights for is no less than the protection of time itself. What the evil lacks in personality it far makes up for in ambition.

Maybe this episode actually should have been called “Darkness Before the Dawn”, because things sure do get dark…

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 466: Darkness Before the Dawn (from Unicorn: Warriors Eternal)

GC13 and David discuss Darkness Before the Dawn from Unicorn: Warriors Eternal.

When things kick into high gear, things kick into high gear. When Merlin shows up and starts acting suspicious, it’s time to ignore his warning that deception is the Evil’s greatest weapon and split up into small groups. Thankfully there’s a certain werewolf in the group now to help balance the books.

We’re in the endgame now. Two more episodes to go until we reach the series finale, and there’s no stopping!

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 465: The Heart of Kings (from Unicorn: Warriors Eternal)

GC13 and David discuss The Heart of Kings from Unicorn: Warriors Eternal.

Edred’s homeland! His backstory! Merlin finally gets some face time! The Heart of Kings was packed to the gills, running longer than an ordinary episode in order to have enough space.

And while everything in the land of the elves is dark and serious, there are plenty of funny things. It’s the one thing a necromancer’s skeletons can have in common with an ancient, giant swordsmith.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 464: The Mystery of Secrets (from Unicorn: Warriors Eternal)

GC13 and David discuss The Mystery of Secrets from Unicorn: Warriors Eternal.

As redundant as a mystery of secrets may be, we’ve come across another exciting episode of Unicorn: Warriors Eternal. The Inspector finally realizes that magic is real, and we meet the famous Otto and discover that he is the one who will eventually create Copernicus.

The London of Unicorn: Warriors Eternal is quite beautiful, and it’s a shame we only get to spend ten episodes in it.
