What better way to celebrate the unfreezing and carving of turkeys, stuffing yourself with bread stuffing, and parked in front of the couch to watch the Cowboys play whoever-the-hell on the tube. To people outside of America that don’t celebrate this holiday, you can celebrate it with our review of Magic Users Club TV by RightStuf!
(0:00 – 1:23:18) Holiday Review: Magic Users Club TV – The folks over at RightStuf found it rather giving in their hearts to send us over our copy of Magic Users Club to review, this time the television series. The show works the same as it did in our OVA Review a handful of episodes ago; girls with magic flying around and trying to save things. Our co-hosts Dustin and Jonn had their particular likes and dislikes on the show, with Jonn favoring it over Dustin’s tastes. All in all, it’s a fun, dumb show that certain people would really enjoy in the end, and we cover all the show has to offer. The hosts also happen to be side tracked on their broom ride review with topics like bloopers on anime DVD’s, Dustin explains what he believes THE TRUTH was really like behind those Central Park Media doors, Risenbool Rangers is the American equal to the Aburatsubo fanclub, anime DVD’s that can’t label for crap (“I’M CALLING YOU OUT A.D.V, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!” -Dustin), Arcade Mania!, Eurobeat/Ganguro fashion, pissed off Bleach fandom and more.
(1:23:18 – 1:25:50) Promo’s – We do our usual fare for telling people to check out RightStuf! site for the best deals on anime, as well as the Holiday Sale happening RIGHT NOW! But WAIT, THERE’S MORE! We are also promoting AnimeCart, an online retailer that can hook you guys up with your anime merch needs! Need a love pillow, cosplay accessory, or DBZ figure? They Got it!

(1:25:50 – 1:54:14) Closing Remarks – Seeing how this is old information from freaking August, we mention our thoughts on different ideas on religion, how Ghost from TCR becomes a Demon because Homeland Security DOUBLE DIPPED DA CHIP!, Dustin internship this semester, RightStuf Gundam merch talk and more!

Because of RightStuf! efforts in putting out more Gundam, our podcast has gone through an evolutionary change with our review of Gundam Evolve.
(0:00 – 1:05:25) Review: Gundam Evolve – Our podcast has now evolved into the next stage in human nerdvolution. Gundam Evolve is 15 short films involving short side stories and what-was-then cool looking CGI 3D model effects from the early 2000’s. If you happen to be a big Gundam nerd, then this is up your ally to add to your collection. As per usual on the podcast, the review usually starts about 10 minutes after the recordings started, where Jonn and Dustin talk about the DVD cover of Super Gals! This only gives more ammunition to Dustin 1990’s memory of the only show on Nickalodeon that mattered, while both hosts go off the review grid a bit to mention the fall (and rise again) of Tokyopop, the stories behind Shin Matsunaga and Johnny Ridden, Dustin repressed 90’s pop music memories, Gundam sunglasses and much more. For a review of animated shorts after the 1990’s, this episode feels more like a 1990’s nostalgia trip than anything else.
(1:05:25 – 1:26:07) Closing Remarks – This time closing remarks are pretty short, where we mention our thoughts on the impact the Orlando Shooting had, American politics, Toon Radio stupidity, and more.

So, Zeonic is currently having some PC issues which sort of hinders any kind of recording for the next couple of weeks. But, as a treat to fill in something at the end of March (MADNESS!!), we did a recording for Regan over at Anime 82 Podcast long ago. How long you say? Well, try the end of November 2013. As of now, Regan current release schedule these days is rather inconsistant, so we’d figure we can give you guys the raw audio for this to enjoy.
(0:00 – 2:00:20) Regan Strongbadz Anime 82 Podcast 21 Questions Series: Since Regan is one to “condense” his audio recordings to fit in a certain time frame, most of our answers have been cut in the past two releases. We’re not doing this out of (TOTAL) spite, but rather for you guys to get THE TRUTH in what we have to say about his questions. Keep in mind, the things we say and mention are from over 16 months ago, so certain titles we mention and what not that haven’t been released have been released by now (like the Space Adventure Cobra series on DVD). We of course are not the only ones to do this, since the AWO crew knew this would happen and did theirs 15 months ago just to have something out during christmas. I should also mention, we got two more recordings that were made around the same time, so those might as well get released on our show. So sit back and enjoy our responses, as there’s is plenty more where that came from.
This is also not the first time Zeonic was ever on Anime 82 either, he has been on in the past for Regan last 21 Question series, and this 8 hour MECHA MADNESS block where he reviewed SPT Layzner before we ever got too it.

It sure seems that were on some kinda Gundam bandwagon, with us talking about Gundam the Origin manga in the last episode, and now the recent release of the Origin anime. We figured now is the time to hit the bullseye with our bulky grey pre-One Year War Guntank before it grinds to a halt and we don’t care as much. So, let’s dive into Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin I “Blue Eyed Casval.”
(0:00 – 52:00) Review: Mobile Suit Gundam – The Origin I “Blue Eyed Casval”: It seems that when anime gets adapted from a manga source, people seem to be up in arms about the final outcome, which is usually for the worse. However, Jonn and Zeonic believe this is a pretty good adaptation in terms that Jonn has read Vol. 5 of the manga and Zeonic has not. So to Zeonic, this is all fresh to him, where as Jonn sees it as pretty accurate and better structured than in the manga. We of course start things off with the current decay of Radioshack, which then leads us to rant about current anime fans taste in anime, what is considered really “filler” in anime, diving into the “pre” Gundam universe, and how one should watch the Gundam series with Origin now being animated. Also, Colony Drop put out their initial reaction of this OVA, and it seems their viewpoint is a bit different than ours, or try a lot.
(52:00 – 1:32:21) Closing Remarks (a.k.a. more Chris Chan talk): Jonn and Zeonic spend a good amount of time closing things out with Zeonic trip to a comic book store in Athens G.A., the card game Superfight!, Marvel movie rights, R.I.P Leonard Nimoy and R.I.P USS Ranger (aka, the aircraft carrier in Top Gun and Star Trek IV), and of course breaking down the audio recording of a past love by our favorite lolcow. All this and more in this episode…
