Ok, so it’s been a exactly 25 episodes since we last covered the Gundam the Origin manga. However, we’re at least was honest in that post about if it’ll take longer than 18 episodes to get to the next volume, which we clearly went above and beyond that number. However, Jonn and Zeonic are gonna double dose it for you, by covering TWO volumes of Gundam the Origin in this episode too make up some lost ground. We are also gonna keep up with tradition from last year, and that’s to read out a years worth of comments we have received in 2014 (and some of 2015 as well).

(0:00 – 50:00) Review: Mobile Suit Gundam – The Origin Vol. 3 & 4: After playing our Indiegogo intro at the beginning of the podcast, both Jonn and Zeonic tackle the South American Zeon occupied jungle of Gundam the Origin. Both co-host are able to go through both volumes by hitting the high points of the plot, but it’s all the same if someone saw the original Gundam series to begin with, so die hard fans are not gonna get offended by the spoilers we might say. Of course, this is Yasuhiko way of making sure the White Base crew knew where South America was than trying to trek through Asia to get there like in the original series. Of course before we dive into any of that, Zeonic explains to Jonn how he was still alive by battling a harsh cold, getting on tangents about television censorship in cartoons, and then us talking about Futurama seasons for some reason.

(50:00 – 52:27) Promo’s: Alpha Counter is there to remind us the dangers of today’s post-modern way of accepting Furries and how, that idea is just plain dumb. Anime World Order has been busy with putting out 2 episodes within a months time, which includes interviews with current Hobby Link Japan employee and one of the early founders of American anime fandom Ardith Carlton, as well as talking about SeHa Girls with Heidi Kemps. Dave and Joel still wanna let you know, that Jojo’s is a crazy show to watch.

(52:27 – 2:07:33) Keeping with Tradition – Reading Listener Comments: This is a tradition that we’ll continue to do on the podcast, because it’s our small appreciation to you listeners that we do read your comments, and then later read them out loud on this podcast once a year. Upon reading out our comments in 2014, we get into discussions about Gundam, Macross (and the blunders at Harmony Gold), Captain Harlock, video games and a whole lot more. This of course keeps us up with the latest Chris Chan news, Discotek Media doing their own crowdsource idea, and much more.

Music Selection:

OP – I need to let the world know, that there is a garage band dedicated to Gundam…

ED – Just letting you listeners know, our love for you is not a lie…

Indiegogo Campaign – Operation: Unite The Anime of Yesteryear Podcast!

It’s now official, our Indiegogo campaign has launched!! To make things short, Jonn and Zeonic have been talking about doing an indiegogo on the past couple of episodes, but now it has become a reality.

The overall purpose is to get Jonn to meet with Zeonic at Animazement this year, and we feel this is the time to strike! We feel that after 2 years, we can use crowdsourcing to make this small goal a reality since both co-host have been wanting to get together for even longer than this podcast has existed. But we need your help to make this happen!

If you click on our Indiegogo link at the top, it will tell you whats in store for the people who want to contribute to our cause. We have plans lined up to do panels, meet other podcasters at the convention, and to do an anime review while were there (which is a given consequence, let’s be real here). We don’t want to make it sound like your paying for Jonn flight to Raleigh North Carolina for nothing, because we have fairly good perks for the people who donate, so people will gain from our campaign. And if your going to the con anyways, make sure to meet us at our panels or us walking around, because we will gladly talk to those who listen and contribute to our podcast, no matter how much you give!

We want to say a hearty thank you to all our listeners, contributors and friends who keep up with us and our podcast! All the information about the campaign is listed in the link above, so check it out! An upcoming podcast will be out soon, so stay tuned!

AoY Podcast #60 – (Belated) 2nd Anniversary Special!

Man, how time does fly, and the same goes for the previous 59 podcast episodes we’ve done since day one. So to celebrate this occasion, it really isn’t anything too spectacular. This is a two and a half hour “unwind” session with Jonn and Zeonic for this years celebration, which range from school, medical talks, movies, video games, and all of the above. We want too thank our listeners for their comments and feedback (as well as some spare change on the side), and we don’t plan on going anywhere for the next two years. So, here is what we got in store…

(0:00 – 1:20:31) 2nd Anniversary Special Part 1: The first 30 minutes or so were recorded the the night before the rest of the recording came in, and we would have kept it going hadn’t Jonn internet went out. In the first part, we discussed topics like the ongoing debate over “what is art?,” followed by a leaked account of how much money Chris Chan spends on WiiU games, Jonn medical background and why he was out of commission for a while. After the transition, we then talk about what we got for Christmas, which included talk about Gundam the Origin, Nintendo WiiU and Smash Bros. talk, Zeonic experience in watching Nadesico with his girlfriend, and learning Spanish in high school.

(1:20:31 – 1:23:02) Podcast Promo’s: We seem to be contracted to keep playing promo’s for Alpha Counter, which with us having Sean Ryan on the last episode with us, we call that a winning investment. You can also check out Mating Habits of the Modern Geek podcast, were nerds everywhere can learn the secrets of getting their desired significant other… which might involve changing oneself to do so. We went ahead and put up a promo for Fast Karate, since Jojo’s has started back up, they will continue the legacy of dissecting to the core of what Jojo’s really is.

(1:23:02 – 2:35:16) 2nd Anniversary Special Part 2: Here is were we get to talk about movies that have recently been to theaters, such as the last Hobbit film, Hunger Games Mocking Jay Pt 1, The Interview and that last Sin City movie. Of course most of our discussion will be in talking about the upcoming movies for this year based off the trailers we have seen. This includes Star Wars Episode 7, Jurassic World, Avengers 2/Marvel movies in general, and that new Terminator Genysis movie. Of course we can’t help but to get into off topic territory with us discussing the Star Wars universe in general, the James and Mike play of the Shadows of the Empire N64 game,  pissing on Rob Leifeld art, and much more.

Music Selection:

OP – The perfect song about your woman and hobbits…

ED – Jefferson Starship come to save the Star Wars special…

Yep, that might sum up this next movie…

Playing Games: Gundam Side Stories Sick Day


1673

 

 

So, Zeonic has come down with a sore throat and other bodily inconveniences over the weekend. Between the sleepless nights, bad side affects from drugs and Netflix movie watching, he was able to throw in some gameplay of Mobile Suit Gundam Side Stories on the Playstation 3. Regardless of illness or not, this was going to be streamed eventually. He was able to play the missions for the Blue Destiny game, which have two sides to the story coming from both Yu and Nimbus. So if your curious on how this game looks, look no further.

This review was a long time coming, even before Jonn and Zeonic started this podcast. This is also the first movie review of the year, which does tie into an anime by the same name, so were not that off our beat guys!! Of course the gang can’t do this film review alone, and had to reach out to Sean Ryan from the Alpha Counter podcast to form our own beatbox gang as we journeyed our way through the L.A. ghetto with the 1991 film, The Guyver.

(0:00 – 52:25) Animoovie Review: The Guyver: This film comes from a time in the 1990’s when film companies got licenses (or didn’t more than likely) to anime titles in order to adapt them into live action format with the shoe-string budgets they had to work with. The results varied (mostly poor), but this film seemed to be that first pioneer from manga to the film reel in America. With Zeonic, Jonn and Sean forming our hip hop gang, we trek through the film encountering rapping monsters, corrupt CEO’s, making things work by bashing your head onto them, taking 8 hours to get lunch, how NOT to fight, and Luke Skywalker working for the G Man. We do our best to stay on topic, but run into trouble when it comes to certain off topic agendas.

(52:25 – 1:06:42) Closing Remarks: There was nothing short about wrapping up our podcast, not when we discuss the latest news about Chris Chan Guerrilla War against Sega, Sean trip to Orlando, and Zeonic calling out Regan.

(1:06:42 – 1:15:41) Bonus Material: This was even more off-topic stuff that Zeonic just left at the end for a stinger, which included people who can’t use headphones, and finding out what films Paul Chapman has reviewed. All this and more in this weeks episode.

Music Selection:

OP – When you see text scrolling, you know your in for a treat…

ED – All in all, this movie is a good time…
