The story can now be told. Long ago, in the early days of Mechanista in G, we rolled. And we rolled the XMA-01 Rafflesia, from Mobile Suit Gundam F91. We talked for a good half hour. And then we discovered that my (Six’s) Audacity… wasn’t picking up my microphone. My half of the conversation was just gone. Now, Dylan is the one that brings all the knowledge anyway, but without a cohost to bounce off of? That isn’t a releasable podcast. We rerolled. We talked about something else that week.
Then, a few weeks later… we rolled the Rafflesia again. And we said NO. We can’t. We can’t! We can’t do this again. The conversation is too fresh in our minds, and besides, it’s cursed. We rerolled. And for a time, there was peace. And then. A few months later. We rolled the Rafflesia again.
This time, it recorded just fine. The track was pristine. But I (Six) had a cunning plan. We’d recorded 3 episodes that day, a feat we haven’t accomplished before or since. And we’d done so with the intention of putting one on ice, to post while I was in the hospital for a major surgery. And wouldn’t it be FUNNY if the one we put on ice was the cursed ep we’d already lost once?
So here we are. Please enjoy, at long last, a discussion about the XMA-01 Rafflesia. Truly, our egos were expanded to bring you this episode.
