Destroy All Podcasts DX Episode 100 Side A - Megazone 23
Hosts: Betty, Dylan, Jeremy, Star
This is the first part of our 100th episode. Okay, it's more like 123 if you count the STs and specials. It's also our second anniversary! Okay, I actually pushed it back almost two months.
This is about teenagers vandalizing soda machines, reckless driving, the '80s, motorcycles that turn into robots, and weirdo first person naked pink girl sex scenes.

P.S. If you don't recognize the song immediately after all the clips from the show, that's because it was supposed to be the theme song for the Megazone 23 TV that was canned in favor of this movie.
More after the cut.
Streamline Pictures/Orion VHS release.
Streamline Pictures/Image DVD release.
ADV DVD release.
As usual, this movie has its own set of unflattering American covers. The Streamline/Orion/Image releases have one dub while the ADV release has its own dub. You could also could count Robotech The Movie as another dub.
The best way to hit on a girl is to try to run her over with your bike.
The '80s were a different time, when girls loved Geordi LaForge and wore tampon necklaces.
If you're not careful your faces will get stuck like that!
I told you it was the '80s! Japan loved Streets of Fire!
They loved David Bowie, too!
And what did Japanese teenagers love? Vandalizing Coke machines!
That robot is trying to cop a feel.
You know what's a great motorcycle design? One where your motorcycle's massive saddlebags scrape the ground whenever you take a turn.
I love sweaty 80's dancing girls. Too bad you can't see her enormous leg warmers in this shot.
I love a movie where they painstakingly draw saliva.
Coitus robotus interruptus.
Is that Don Johnson? No, it's just Shogo.
B.D.is having a talk with Shogo. B.D. stands for Bad Dude. I am not joking.
Hey look, product placement for another Japanese cartoon! (Dagger of Kamui was also from the '80s.)
Eve is airing out her armpits.
I would make a crack about how banging your head on a tree is no way to get a girl to sleep with you, but it actually works.
"I feel pretty! Call me Mrs. Claus!"
Nothing hotter than a sex scene in a magic pink dimension with sweaty girls and invisible guys while the entire plot of the movie is explained to you in voice over.
Oh yeah, this movie has robots in it too. I had nearly forgotten.
And gigantic computers! Because the bigger a computer is, the more powerful it is, right?
Megazone 23, the movie that dares to draw every damn side street of Tokyo in excruciating detail.
