Umasugi Wave is a net radio show about Super Robot Taisen. The hosts are Sugita Tomokazu, Aizawa Mai and Endoh Masaki. Most of the time Takanobu Terada is there too. And there’s many guests.
It’s been maybe 2 years since I started listening to it from time to time. I think around the time Z3 got announced. However this radio show is almost ten years old and started on January 2007, a bit after the SRW Divine Wars anime started.
Those are just random notes I make when listening to remember some of the fun moments.Just thought I’d share the fun instead of keeping it for myself.
I don’t understand everything they say because it’s not anime or games and they talk normally, but what I write down isn’t everything I understand either.
I try to write things down and update this whenever listening to an episode.
Sometimes I don’t have the time to listen to an episode. The oldest podcast which is one month old is removed whenever they add a new one. There might be someone archiving previous episodes somewhere. Some episodes are sometimes uploaded on Niconico by fans, like the one when they talked about Mizutani Yuko after her death.

Opening quizz : in Macross, what is the nickname given to Hikaru by the three bridge operator girls? Quizz was sent in by “Tobia kun in suparobo V which is currently being told by Chidori Kaname to sit down” san .
Terada saying they’re currently doing the recording of the theme songs for V and he can’t get it out of his head.
1st mail person says they’re looking forward to V because of the MCs being voiced by Kirimoto Takuya and Kanda Akemi, and that seeing Kirimoto’s reactions to the mazin emperor G chogokin was more impressive than seeing the unit itself during the PV. The mails asks how F91 will be dealt with in V. Morisoba reads a second mail who says the same things.
Sugita says SRW V MC Souji looks kinda old compared to the average robot MC. Terada says that he actually isn’t that old. But well he is over thirty. Sugita asks how old Crowe was. Terada says Crowe is in his twenties. Sugita and Morisoba are both shocked. Terada says that Kirimoto already played a dev version of V to help with his voicing work, and that when Kirimoto san got to the “select your main character screen” and how it shows their profile, he was so shocked at Souji’s age he couldn’t speak anymore. Terada jokes saying “Sugita kun you’ll probably get that one, it was the same kind of shock as when you learn of the gold saint’s ages and you’re like what the hell?! they’re that young?!” Sugita cites Aldebaran as a fine example. They all laugh.
After that, Terada gives info about the F91&Crossbone plot in V. I never watched/read F91 and Crossbones so just dumbly repeating what he said: Kinkaid normally appears and rides the Gundam F91. The mass production type F91 has limiters on it, so it cannot bunshin while shooting the Vespa. But it can and does shoot the Vespa. The blue one which Harisson is riding on can remove its limiters, but in SRW V, it’s not the mass production type F91s from the F91 movie, but the mass production type F91s from the Crossbone mangas, so it’s the ones which other people can also ride on, so its limiters aren’t removed.
During the nekketsu robot academy corner: there’s a G Gundam event starting in supacro so they start talking about G Gundam. Sugita tells Morisoba to list 3 things she likes from it. 1 how it’s full of burning feelings. 2 rain san is eroi. She didn’t mention a 3rd thing as Sugita start saying he was excited from the cut scene when Rain puts on her pilot suit in the “Sega Saturn version”(I guess he means F or F Final) and she says “makenai nai wa yo!” and he was like “kochi datte make nai wa yo”(as in a part of his body isn’t loosing either). They talk about Schwarz’s seiyuu Hori Hideyuki (remember he’s also penguin emperor and Touya’s dad) and how he was super funny as Momotarou in Sakigake Otokojuku, especially when doing the jikai youkokus. Sugita says there’s a staff person of the Phi Brain anime who’s a big fan of Otokojuku, and there was a time when Hori san voiced a character in Phi Brain, and the staff person asked him to do a jikai youkoku of Phi Brain the same way he used to do Otokojuku’s jikais, and all the people there were like woooow so cool and getting heated up&glued to the screen, except some staff woman who was like “huh why are all getting amazed” because she didn’t know about otokojuku so they told her to watch it. Morisoba say it’s been 4 years since Sugita first told her to watch it but she haven’t watched it yet if I heard right.
Answer to the opening quizz was “mister lingerie”. They give hints to Morisoba to find it, saying it’s something every girl wears, and because she doesn’t get they mean lingeri, she’s like “eh? but I don’t wear those” and they’re all like EEH. So they tell her “just list all the things you’re wearing right now and you’ll find out”. After a lot of banter she ends up at first saying randery(laundry I guess?) Sugita starts joking, Ransberry, etc. Then she figures it out. Sugita says something about long ago when people went to karaoke and something about lingerie but he speaks too slowly and I don’t get it, plus the ending song is playing so it’s always hard to hear the ending segment.
514, november 8
Endoh talking about upcoming bdays: someone whose name I didn’t catch, komatsu mikako san, and terada(11/11). Everyone telling him omedetou and words of thanks. Morisoba even brought a present for him. (Some energy drinks called yunkeru if I got it right)
Terada is turning 47.
1st fan mail is from a 17 yo person, they’re all amazed by how young they are. It talks about how many times they cleared some SRW games. Says they cleared Z Z2s Z3s alpha 3 etc, multiple times and was playing alpha gaiden while writing the mail. The question asks which game did you clear the most and how many times.
Endoh and Sugita saying how that person must have developed weird playing styles in their new game pluses after clearing the games so many times. Sugita&Terada says most SRW needs you to clear them 3 times at most to see everything and every secret. Not talking about SRW but games in general, Terada says he’s the kind of person who gets satisfied after clearing a game once, he’s satisfied once he’s seen the true end and rarely replays games. Sugita talking about old action/shootthemup games with endless loops.
Next mail is someone saying he recently had a dream where kitadani hiroshi appeared. Asks if you ever had a dream where famous people appear.
Endoh saying some time ago even though he wasn’t stressed or anything he had an awesome dream where yuki maomi san appeared then after that his heart would go doki doki whenever randomly seeing her on tv and such. Terada says something that sounds interesting from their reactions but can’t catch it. Sugita says he had a dream where he’s naked or something and plays drums and there’s someone who scolds him screaming “why are you nakled?! Why are you naked?!” , he says he can’t say who it is, and he had that same dream like 2 or 3 times over time, and he actually told the someone about it and they told him “shikatanai na” with a smile. The others ask him if all his dreams have him being naked or something. Aizawa Mai says she once had a scary dream where she runs away but no matter how much she runs, from the corner of her eye she can always see a giant fist chasing her or something. Terada saying he’s currently watching Kamen Rider Ex Aid and Kageyama san is voicing the belt, and he had a dream where he had the belt and henshin’ed while hearing kageyama’s voice.
This episode‘s SRT Cross Omega event info corner/nekketsu robot academy corner was number 58. Seems they didn’t have events or stuff to talk about so they just talks about the game’s Original characters.
Morisoba:” Asahi(MC) is too dense and can’t see how Oozora chan likes him. How can he stay like that with boobs like that near him”
Sugita says something about Chatte and Yabuki Kentaro sensei but can’t catch it.
lotsof fun things but can’t sum up it all.
Kaen song corner.
Too long to explain,Sugita doing a joke with Jinki Extend OP. (iirc tsunashima tarou did some twitter poll around a year ago asking which jinki manga he should continue, everyone voted for the good one, but then he didn’t pick either choice and did a reboot again. It’s in champion red so he probably upped the lol rape even more and not in a good way, not sure if I’ll check it out. I probably will as I’m weak and really like Jinki.)
513 november 1 2016 The 1st mail they read is from “Katia-is-Coustwell’s-strengthening-parts san”. (Made me laugh a lot. haven’t played it yet but I’m happy Sir Coustwell Brachium is in OGMD.)
Another mail asks “what was the first event ever you participated to?”(as in staff/guest)
Sugita says his 1st time was an event for Summon Night. It was actually before voicing Bullet in Alpha. (Didn’t know about this, always though his first game role was Bullet. Then again when I first played Alpha dreamcast I didn’t know about Sugita. I probably only became a fan of him with Kyon in 2006, like many others.)
They talk about the Majestic Prince movie getting in Cross Omega. Sugita cites Gargantia Valvrave and Majestic Prince, saying it was a rare time when 3 high quality mecha anime aired at the same time. ( I like Gargantia and Valvrave so I agree with him. Haven’t watched Majipri.) They talk about Shinobu finally getting voiced in the game. Morisoba and Sugita both YATTEYARUZE in synchro by reflex. (That was really cool). Sugita starts humming shakunetsu no ikari and everyone stars laughing a lot(I also lost my sides). Sugita long ago watched God Bless Dancougar OVA with Hosoya Yoshimasa kun, and it was fun how he was reacting to every single thing:
Hosoya: “WOOOAH SUGITA SAN THE HELICOPTER IS FLYING”
Sugita “I know I can see”.
And if I got it right they watched stuff until late at night, Hosoya fell asleep or something and suddenly woke up asking where he was, forgot he was at Sugita’s place.
According to Sugita, Matsuoka kun once told him he likes pink panties (I guess Matsuoka Yoshitsugu) Endoh likes white panties. Terada likes white or black. Sugita says he doesn’t really have an attraction to panties and don’t really care? Or something. Sugita says he’s jealous of how girls can have fun go buy underwear together. Terada says there’s bras for men now though. They keep talking about underwear for a while.
Sugita says he finally found Endoh san’s present for this year, he’ll give him trunks with “hardcore” written on the back.
Sugita says he really likes love live sunshine ED song and it stays in his head.
512 Morisoba says the day this episode was released 25 october, is the bday of aizawa mai’s seiyuu’s agency’s dai senpai nouzawa masako san(dragon ball son goku) who voiced Ropet in Combattler V which is often in SRW. Morisoba jokes maybe she’ll be a guest soon in this show. Endoh says he doesn’t want to since he’ll be too nervous. Sugita says she is a huge personality after all, but it could be fun; For example one day at some event with seiyuus Sugita improvised a Dragon Ball joke but no one got it including the veteran seiyuus there, except Nouzawa san who explained it. Endoh and Morisoba say Sugita is amazing as well for being able to just randomly throw a Dragon Ball joke like that. In the end they say Nouzawa san is a very nice person.
Sugita says Imai Asami san is very nonbiri and forgetful, to a point she once told him sometimes she get in her bath with her clothes on.
511 Sugita while imitating Jagi, (During the school corner with supacro news where morisoba acts the robot moimoi etc, he often acts characters and imitate other seiyus. He often does Jagi from hnk,Cell/Wakamoto or others) said the current anime he recommends is mahou shoujo ikusei keikaku and it has inoue kikuko san. also he was feeling lonely when naria girls ended, seems at the uchiage to celebrate the end of the show they didn’t invite sugita since he was only a random character in an episode or something like that. And seems they even showed the uchiage live, like the rest of the show and the motion capturing and voice recording or something?
At the end, they’re about to give the answer to this week’s question which was: in Zegapain, the MC Sogoru Kyou participates in a swimming medley relay, what part of the relay did he do? Before giving out the answer they try to ask Morisoba if she knows the answer. At one point to give her a hint Sugita says something about Nagare voiced by Miki san (Shinichiro Miki) in justice gakuen. He talks too low so I don’t get what he said, but he prolly says he does the same swimming style in one of his attacks or something. Endoh says it’s nostalgic. The answer was butterfly style. (I really like Justice Gakuen and it’s where I got this blog’s name from)
510 Didn’t have time to listen
Morisoba: Question from shin san: ”because im doing “net saffia” (maybe some game ? I don’t get it) recently, I learned that kaigai otaku call two girls hugging pressing their chest on each other “symmetrical docking”. If Yamada Shin san comes again as a guest, please tell him about it.“ (who’s that? ヤマダ少尉 aka Gai from Nadesico ?)
All of the umasugi MCs didn’t know about this piece of trivia.
Morisoba asks what the words mean in English in the first place, so they try to explain it, it’s using the word “symmetry”, so it’s “sayuu taishou gattai”.
Morisoba says the day this episode was released 4 October is the bday of eureka seven’s talho and full metal panic’s Mao seiyuu: Neya Michiko
Sugita does some joke about the hurry up voice in bomberman when theres’ only one minute left? Or something like that. (Been a while since I played a bomberman, was fun times. I still hope I’ll manage to actually train and win the epitanime Saturn bomberman tournament one day. Maybe go to the one at stunfest too one day if I have the time and money if God wills.)
508 Stopped at 14:00, sadly Ididn’t have time to listen to the rest of it before it was removed.
A long time ago before pc portables and mobiles existed, Terada was looking for daitarn3 and zambot 3 books that were released back when it aired for reference or something? And went to tons of old book shops and lotsof shops? And he was looking for a chogokin of zambot 3 and went to a “Tokyo docomo omocha?” shop and they chased him out saying “cant’s you just get it at Bandai anyway”. sure he could, but as a last resort and he didn’t want to. Then he thought he should check the small toys shop near his house thinking maybe it’ll be here since it’s a small shop. Then if it’s not there he’ll go ask Bandai. In the end it was there at the shop.
During the Endoh Masaki Kaensong corner: One of the Rayearth op kaenson lyrics were “please release a VR SRW and please don’t remove breast bounce”
They all talk about how a VR SRW game would be like: “VR would mean it’ll be like you’re piloting, in the cockpit. But then that means you don’t see any breast bounce since you’re alone in cockpit. So then you need two people riding. Like Daimidaler.”
So then they start talking about how a VR Daimidaler game would work.
Terada: “you’ll have to play other games series than SRW to enjoy that kind of things.”
Sugita: “maybe you can make something like that with custom maid.”
507 obari kantoku asked sugita why moimoi robot in supacro, the one based on morisoba’s segment where she’s the new robot moimoi at school, does the bari pose sometimes for no reason.
506 Terada says he’s currently working on the new gundam breaker, deciding names for fictional plamo parts, and they need to find the names fast so they just throw out names that sounds mecha and gundam like. these days he’s doing it for gundam ibo parts. Sugita says something about seed destiny and how once a producer that asked a name and was like “yeah that totally sounds like a water mobile suit” but can’t understand talk too fast.
in part of the Supacro related news they talk about Zegapain. Sugita says he played the game on xbox. Morisoba says she used to play a game where you just endlessly walk in a desert, sugita says it reminds him of romancing saga 3 endless looping desert area, morisoba said it wasn’t that but maybe similar, it was fun because when you’d walk there was a footstep sfx going shashashasha, Endoh is like”why you’d play that game” she says “I dunno I like sand. In 10 years of this radio program I never said it but I like sand” It’s a friend who recommended her the game because they knew she might like it because of the sand…
morisoba didn’t watch zegapain until the end. She was watching it in one night then stopped, she watched until middle of the show and was like “ah so this is how it is”. Endoh tells her to finish it since it’s interesting, terada tells her too.
Around15 years ago when nakamura started living alone, sugita went to stay with him in his apartment for a week. Then nakamura told him”go home already”
Apparently Sarah used to be a fast food manager before joining the titans,sugita says sarah was actually a very competent collected person and would have stayed like that if not for meeting Scirocco and getting her weird obsession to scirocco, morisoba says maybe sirocco scouted her after eating hamburger there, terada says maybe.
505 Sugita said he’s waiting for the Boondocks DVD box to release ( just how much of a maximum bro can Sugita be?)
504 didn’t listen
503 didn’t listen (Maybe someoen upped it somewhere. Try to find it on the net to see if Sugita funnily advertised P5 as it was when the game got released)
502 didn’t have time to listen to it all sadly.
There’s a PC engine game called飛装騎兵カイザード mentioned by Sugita, with designs by obari san. One day sugita asked him “ do you know why there’s a dragonar like mech in that one game?” and obari was like” oh im the one who worked on that”
Morisoba saw cca twice. 1st time she didn’t undetrstand because she didn’t know gundam stuff, watched it without seeing the stuff before. Sugita says it’s not good to only watch the compilation movies? Not sure. Thenhe says you need to watch 1st gundam z zz 0080 0083 then cca. And you need to watch igloo too. And that char amuro relation is very deep.
Sugita talking about “that game app where you catch animals” being ultra popular at his agency. Then his private taxi driver, an old man, asked him what’s it about, and Sugita explained everything about it from the beginning. And the driver was like “you’re nice” (I don’t know how seiyuu agencies and working as a seiyuu works because I still haven’t finished shirobako and girlish number, and want to watch them but cant for reasons. But I think old man driver is one of the private driver for all the seiyuu agency, not just sugita’s). Then Sugita showed him the “crab” creature of someone who nicknamed it “ebi”(shrimp) so then oldman taxi driver started laughing like crazy and Sugita was like “DRIVE PLZ DON’T REMOVE YOUR HANDS” as the car was shaking.
Sugita recently saw some ex-Sega staff person who told him “thank you” because he voiced a char in Sangokushi Taisen.
500 nothing worth mentioning I think
499 nothing worth mentioning I think
498 guest is okaiyu ryotaro
497 guest is Hikasa Yoko(Katia in Moon Dwellers).
Sugita and her talk about anime they were in together.
Terada says it was decided around 4 years ago Hikasa Yoko would voice Katia. Then some years later they decided on Shimazaki Nobunaga san for Touya and they were like “huh, feels like we’ve already saw that combination before”. It really wasn’t on purpose that Katia Touya is Kyouko Kyouichi in Daimidaler. And Touya’s dad is voiced by Hori Hideyuki, who did the penguin emperor. And again it was a coincidence.
Sugita joking saying that when voicing Da Vinci in Nobufool he begged so he gets a robot or else the show might not get in SRW.
491 http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm29557090 about mizutani yuuko death. Didn’t listen to all of it yet.
Recording for beach dwellers was on april 2016.
Why the name Morisoba: (I think I copypasted this from /m/)
Week of 20 june 2016, Asano Masumi(Calvina) on Umasugi Wave
Asano: What’s “Morisoba”?
Sugita: My nickname for Aizawa Mai
Asano: What’s Endoh’s then?
Sugita: Endoh-san *everyone laughs*
Asano: What’s your’s then?
Sugita: Umm, Sugita-kun
Asano: What’s Mai’s?
Asano: WHY IS THAT?! She’s the one that gets singled out?!
Aizawa: Sugita called me that right from the start of this radio show. *everyone laughs*
