Been a long time coming, but were here to deliver the gift basket of Gundam goodness with our grand RightStuf! Gundam Review!

(0:00 – 1:12:20) Review – A bunch of Gundam stuff – Hey, we did our best to meet our two a month goal for episodes, and coming out on the last day of January still counts I think, but whatevers. It’s been a couple of years since Jonn and Dustin decided to cover a bunch of Gundam in one episode, but if it happened once then it can happen again. Both hosts give their thoughts on G Reco, Iron Blooded Orphans, Gundam Build Fighters Try, Gundam Unicorn RE:0096, and the views of the quality of recent Gundam Blu-ray’s that have been released (that we have already reviewed and can be found in our ‘Review’ tab on the right side of this page). Both hosts talk about other anime properties, dumb chat members, upcoming Gundam releases that interest us, Jonn dog in the background howling, and much more.

(1:12:20 – 1:14:50) Promo’s – Ignore these promo stuff from RightStuf because Gundam 0080 is already out and I’m sure whatever promo code I said is probably expired by now. But still check out RightStuf since they have everything all the time on sale. Anime Cart is still around and I’m sure they got some good deals going on, so hit them up. – Dustin

(1:14:50 – 2:35:00) Closing Remarks – Well, a change in the American oval office officially happened, which prompts Dustin and Jonn to give their commentary about what has happened since Jan. 20th. This also includes Dustin trip to Myrtle Beach in finding cool anime items at the local shops, finding things about his boss family he should have never known about, ideas on what to review coming up in the future, Dustin turns 31, shows about making fun of politicians in the Bush era, the art of the sucker punch, and much more.

Music Selection:

OP – Seig RightStuf Gundam merch!

ED – Until next time for more Gundam stuff…

What better way to end out 2016 but to travel back long ago, in a galaxy far far away. This time Dustin and Jonn are joined by previous guests Daft and Vekou to talk about Star Wars: Rogue One.

(0:00 – 1:07:30) Review – Star Wars: Rogue One Review – The council of nerds have all gathered to talk about the recent Star Wars film, which seems to be divided in the fandom of who likes and dislikes this movie. All hosts mention the movies strengths and weaknesses, as well as talk about other Star Wars material. This of course gets us talking about story lines in video games, nerd conversations on Clerks movie levels, and much more.

(1:07:30 – 3:02:44) Post-Christmas Holiday Closing Remarks – A lot has happened over the past month, and the hosts have something to say about it. Aside from talking about what we all got for Christmas, we give RIP shout outs to Alan Thicke, Carrie Fisher and George Michael passings. We also mention convention talk from Daft’s North East Comic Con review and seeing the Hanna Barbera exhibit, where as Dustin went to experience what happens when a high school puts together a comic con in the middle of nowhere. There is also discussion of a book about Tommy Wiseau, talk of terrible and cool animation industry people, Dustin desire to meet Jerry Beck and Fred Patton, abandoned Flinstone parks, the recent ramblings of Peter Fay, who to ban from our chat, and much more.

Music Selection:

OP – I’m sure people wish 2016 can be blown up with the Death Star already…

ED – Get ready to run into the Thicke of 2017…
