Most of us know Yoshiyuki Tomino primarily for the long-lived Mobile Suit Gundam franchise. But he’s got tons of other mecha anime to his name — among them Blue Gale Xabungle (Combat Mecha Xabungle in Japan), released in 1982. The series in in the midst of a Blu-ray restoration in Japan, and the second box is coming this summer, complete with the series’s compilation film.
