I know its been 3 weeks since our last episode, but that was to gear us up for the return of Gundam Month. With the ending of finals, life and other distractions hitting us (including Zeonic finding time to watch the Gundam Seed compilation films), we are here to kick off talking about Gundam shows in the past decade with our discussion of what we wanna talk about in Mobile Suit Gundam Seed and Seed Destiny.

Time Codes:
0:00 – 8:20: We waste a good portion of time discussing real issues out there like how Federal Student Loan money should be used and how our American government doesn’t know how to properly use funding as the issues that Zeonic is plagued with by signing up with ObamaCare.

8:20 – 1:55:55: Zeonic was able to do something he thought he could never accomplish, and that was to watch ALL of Gundam Seed anything. This has been a long and well forgotten road that he wishes that he could never tread on, but knew one day he would. Jonn was there to support him as they both dive into the world of new millennium Gundam alternative universe shows.

Zeonic and Jonn were able to try and make sense of a show that is the worst on the totem pole in terms of how Gundam series go, but is far from the worst anime ever made. They both talk about how they both saw Gundam Seed on Toonami a decade ago (last month to be exact) and what transpired from and after that. Along with doing that they discuss Gundam shows in general (a given of course), if both Gundam Seed series are a conspiracy by Sunrise to make other Gundam shows look really good in comparison to Seed, how Kira Yamato is anime Jesus, what is the dumbest faction to be a fan of, too many Gundams to count and much more.

1:18:00 – 1:18:49:  Promo: Daily Anime Podcast – I basically “asked” Jeff if he had a promo I could put up for this podcast episode to help better promote his show that he currently runs. He was all like “uh…. I dunno man. Do I have a promo?” I then forced upon him the option to give me something soon, because in my mind, he didn’t have much of a choice in the matter. So what you hear is the product of what you can expect to hear from a man like Jeff at the Daily Anime Podcast.What he says is all truth, because it is first hand experience that they are “the realist podcast the’re is when it comes to this anime nonsense.” And if your not real like them, then your not worth their time… or mine.

Music Selection:

OP 1 – This show couldn’t invoke any emotion to me at all

ED 1 – The only ending of Seed I really only know about

OP 2 – I don’t understand how this ignited people to like this show to begin with

ED 2 – Even after all I saw, I still never got a reason why this show was liked back then…

This show has:

gundam seed fake lacus mobilke suit

Fake Lacus gets a mobile suit…. I am not kidding here. Just goes to show how mobile suits are just “decoration”

gundam seed lacus cline uses water attack

LACUS USES WATER GUN, ITS SUPER EFFECTIVE!!!!

gundam seed rippoff

The end of the video I saw of the Seed Destiny…. how total truth this totally is guys…

NOT ANOTHER LACUS NOOOO

OH MAN PERFECT COUPLE RIGHT THERE GUYS!!!

Character emotion is also shown through the many shower scenes in this anime…

    Toonzone member here, And I just want to say that slamming Hellcat and GWOtaku for having differing opinions on Gundam then you is a vile and loathsome thing to do and that all you’ve done reforces my opinion about UC Gundam fans as egotistical jerkasses.

    • I don’t even remember talking in length about those two in this episode. Also, I think whatever you took from what we said about them and Toonzone as “slamming’ is an overly extreme example. I am pretty sure I “know” how to “slam” someone, and I wouldn’t count whatever we said about them as slamming.

      Are we “really” that vile and loathsome being UC fans as compared to other vile and loathsome people around the world? I would like to know.
