AoY Podcast #43 – Gundam Month The Fourth: Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Ep 7: “Over the Rainbow” Review


Also known as: “That must be the worst kind of hell ever to chase after Lalah forever…”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:16:03)

Well, this is going to conclude our Gundam Month segment for quite a while, until there is new Gundam to come out to talk about. After over three years of podcast’s between different names and people, we are here to finally finish out our Gundam Month segments; as we dive into the newtype rainbow of Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Episode 7: Over the Rainbow.

Gundam Unicorn 7 was able to answer some questions to a lot of Gundam fans as to “kinda” tell what happens after Char’s Counterattack, as we discuss the events and story behind this final OVA spanning over 4 years now. You can expect to find giant mobile armors with TONS AND TONS OF GUNS EVERYWHERE, newtype acid trips, newtype ghosts, colony lasers, and how newtypes were destined to have political positions. We were able to have Andy from the Daily Anime Podcast join us to talk about this OVA, which got us to talk about the new Godzilla movie in the beginning of this recording, angry autistic’s on tumblr, autistic’s against Funimation getting Gundam, catching Andy up on our favorite LolCow, us bro’s having bro crushes on Suichi Ikeda, (I ment to say George Washington not Thomas Jefferson for those history people out there, my bad), how smoking is an issue in Universal Century (the quote is found somewhere on this page but I’ll post the quote after this paragraph), bad writers and more general Gundam talk plus more than that.

Here is the quote Jonn used in his closing remarks: “The poison called tobacco, which was once almost extinct in the old ages, still lingered in the days of Universal Century 0096. This was the result of tobacco quality improving as a result of the space age, like the reduction of tar to reduce the negative effects on the human body and the intricate machines, and the development of chemicals that combust at low temperatures in tobacco, but most people felt that the biggest reason for the revival of tobacco was the One Year War.”

Music Selection:

OP – We go over the rainbow and beyond with this Gundam OVA

ED – You can try and connect the rainbows all day, but you still might end up with nothing

This show has:

Suichi Ikeda being Char all the damn time...

Suichi Ikeda being Char all the damn time…

How you can totally judge an American voice actor over one out of context tweet by autistic people

    Thanks for posting a new episode. I’ve really been enjoying hearing you guy’s discussions on the gundam series. Though i’m personally only a casual fan of the series. In fact, Mobile Fighter G Gundam is the only one that i really loved. Even the original 0079 series had a couple of boring moments from what i remember. 😦

    • Thank you for listening to us.

      It would make sense if you’re a casual fan to the series as you mentioned you only like G Gundam. G Gundam is a show that a lot of hardcore Gundam fans either really like or despise it (for some stupid reason).

      The best way that I can state for someone to check out the original Gundam series is by watching the compilation movies to get a good sense of what the show is about, even if the movies do drag on at certain points.

    Welp, now’s a good time to share this Miiverse Gundam art. https://miiverse.nintendo.net/posts/AYIHAAABAADRUV6gE_zAPQ by lamune04
    https://miiverse.nintendo.net/posts/AYIHAAAEAAAqUybV8KhmpQ by Ikachiyo. I love that 0079 too. Was there a new Gundam Dynasty Warriors game at e3 or did I just see an old link?

    Speaking of e3, here’s another picture just for grins http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/BAYO_LINK.jpg. Bayonetta 2 (includes the original Bayonetta with Nintendo costumes with abilities) makes me happy to own a WiiU. She even does Link’s spinning sword attack!

    Oh snap! I wasn’t imagining things, this IS happening in the US for PS3 http://www.siliconera.com/2014/06/12/dynasty-warriors-gundam-reborn-gets-new-trailer-e3/ . Between this and Hyrule Warriors I may become a proper Dynasty Warriors fan yet.

    • That art is pretty dope son, nice finds. I would like to play the new Bayonetta 2 game, but I alas do not have a WiiU or a desire to get one as of this time.

      I… seriously did not know there was another DW: Gundam game coming out in the next month. I guess I know what i’m gonna go spend my paycheck on now lol. Thanks for letting me know.

      If you haven’t noticed, out website address has changed, all thanks to your donation. I decided to put that in action on Tuesday and have out site have a .com at the end of it. We still got some of that left over that we will decide on what to do with it, if anything better equipment perhaps. I dunno, unless you feel your money would go toward me getting the new Dynasty Warriors Gundam game. How you feel about that??? I shall await your answer.

    I’m really excited for Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn as well. DW Gundam 3 was the first game i ever earned a platinum trophy for on ps3. Its weird though since i only bought the game because of the dynasty warriors link, since i’m a fan of those games. But it did make me more interested in learning abotu Gundam.

    Kinda sad to see Gundam Reborn deciding to focus more on the newer series like Seed and 00, since i’d love to see more G Gundam mobile suits added (like the entire Shuffle Alliance).

    Also sad that this new one will not include english dub options like the previous games, which is why its digital only. I suppose most other fans won’t mind that, but i really loved english voices, especially the over the top voice acting for Domon Kasshu. lol

    • Are you for real, its a digital release only? Thats a bummer, because I am a person who likes collecting physical copies of things I own, than just digital vaporware.

      But, i’ll still get it. The idea of the Shuffle Alliance in a game sounds pretty sweet, even if they are in the series very briefly. My sad thing is for Gundam Wing I can’t pilot a Leo and destroy other suits. Come on now, I WANNA BLOW UP ALL THE DAMN TIME LIKE IN THE SHOW, CUZ THATS WHAT LEO’S DO YALL!!!
