We could’t go through the month of March without posting up something for you guys, so we’ve decided to just bunch everything into a super sized podcast double feature of Alita: Battle Angel and Gundam NT.
(0:00 – 1:02:10) Review: Alita: Battle Angel – Hitting off one of the super anime type movies for the month of February is the acclaimed Alita film, which did not get the type of negative feedback like Ghost in the Shell got a while ago. Both Dustin and Jonn go into the film and compare the film setting to what was used from the manga/anime. This also gets them talking about other fine films from Robert Rodriguez, the future of upcoming “soon to be” anime-to-live action films, don’t ever buy a Mitsubishi Mirage and much more.
(1:02:10 – 2:32:03) Closing Remarks from early March: These are more recent discussions from when we recorded this segment at the beginning of this month, to include topics such as Dustin going to AgamaCon and SC Comicon, chilling with Tiffany Grant (EDIT: Check our Review section for our Tiffany Grant interview because the audio link to the Tiffany Grant interview showed up on iTunes instead of our real podcast episode, so hopefully by removing the link that was here before that should get things fixed), getting to meet WWF wrasslers, Dustin chair breaks mid-recording, the Meson saga update, the epic Joe Rogan/Alex Jones Return episode talk(aka SCREW YOU JONES, WE OUT DID THE LENGTH OF THAT PODCAST SUCKAHHH!), Dustin and Josh troll Ghost on his new show, RIP Jan Micheal Vincent and Keith Flint and much more.
(2:32:03 – 2:33:14) Rightstuf Promo
(2:33:14 – 3:17:30) Review: Gundam NT Narrative – This was recorded at the end of February, which cinematic time wise it’s what came next in theaters after Alita. This particular film was a first for Gundam in America, since it’s the only Gundam property to make it to the big screen (and did so successfully than say another film), but was meet rather poorly, at least to Dustin point of view when he was awake during the film. Both Jonn and Dustin had different ideas on what the film could’ve been, which Dustin would’ve been fine with a Kelly’s Heroes Gundam type movie the way it should’ve been. This also discuss the biggest Unicorn podcasters in the past few years, some Alita talk and much more.
(3:17:30 – 4:54:19) Closing Remarks: Only a handful of things to discuss in this one, but one in particular just made us a pure VICtim to the online drama surrounding the whole #KickVic fiasco. This also includes shady Filipino eBay people, our thoughts on that Green New Deal bouncing around out there, RightStuf Gundam talk, what would America be like if John McAfee got elected as our next president and much more.

(0:00 – 1:00:40) Review: Dragon Ball Super Broly – Jonn and Dustin were able to see the latest Dragonball on the silver screen again, and give their thoughts on the film with of course some spoilers thrown in. This also includes talk on Dustin report from the Gator Bowl, how Aggie fans are proud of cutting off Longhorn horns, Power Rangers talk, Jonn internet problems and the Texan way of handling them, Dragonball Z games and much more.
(1:00:40 – 2:07:54) The RightStuf Anime Funtime Closing Remarks – There isn’t really a proper closing remarks this time seeing how so much has happened in the month of Janurary, but this is time for Jonn and Dustin to mention their thoughts on titles like G Gundam, Aura Battler Dunbine and Rurouni Kenshin. These are things you should check out from the RightStuf website. This also includes how David Moo is the being the greatest Sanji voice, the olden days of pirated anime on eBay, Chris Chan stuff, Timbox news and much more.

It’s per tradition that we release convention reports half a year after the con happened, because oh freaking well. So if your wanting someone to drone on about their time at a con that you weren’t at during a long holiday flight or drive, we got your covered!
(0:00 – 1:34:15) Animazement 2018 Con Report – Dustin regales his tale of a con that happened when the weather was a whole lot warmer, where the first time in years he is a regular con lackey roaming the hallways and not dealing with patrons in the dealers room. Stories can be told about hanging out with other Otaku he’s know about online and their posse, Dustin old parking job and the economics surrounding that industry, modifying your SNES, getting sweet swag from Limited Run Games on a yearly visit, trying to talk to women at the bar with a Salvador Dali art work on their back, the dreaded bootleg dealer came back, rednecks whining about stuff they don’t have in public restaurants, drunken dads that roam the cons and more. This also includes how we thought the Starbucks training lead to other problems, seeing a Steely Dan/Doobie Bros concert in Atlanta, video game and anime talk, and much more.
(1:34:15 – 02:25:29) Closing Remarks Part 1 – This is just the opinions of ours relating back in May, that people have already forgotten about but ohwellwhocaresanyways. This includes televangelists who buy jets in the name of Jesus and Christianity talk, hot takes on the news, how Rosanne got cancelled and much more.
(02:25:29 – 04:03:30) Anime Weekend Atlanta 2018 Con Report – If anything was lacking from Animazement, AWA made that up tenfold. Dustin recants his experience by hanging out with his buddy downtown to ride on electric scooters after eating some Pho’King amazing food, getting the correct panelist badge, meeting with old friends, meeting cool people like Tim Eldred, Micheal Sinterniklaas, Darius Washington and Andy Field, talking about panels done at the convention (which were titled Anime in High Gear, Christianity in Anime and Mobile Suit Gundam in America), buying Neil Nadelman old Gundam laserdiscs, getting the sweet hookup on Voltes V from Dave Merrill, getting to meet the Corn Pone man himself in person, people who have seizures at the con and how the staff handles that proper, Is Daryl Surat a Pokemon Seizure Episode Denier that it was ALL A CONSPIRACY? and more.
(04:03:30 – 04:29:48) Closing Remarks Part 2 – Somehow we get into closing remarks territory with the past pre-hearing of the Kavanaugh case, banned episodes of Pokemon, general anime and politics talk, people who had complaints on panels at AWA from an alt-right perspective and more.

It’s once again time to bust out another RightStuf product review, intermixing with American politics. This time we have Mobile Report Gundam Wing… AGAIN!
(0:00 – 58:20) Review: Mobile Report Gundam Wing (PART DEUX) – It’s been about five years since we last talked about Gundam Wing, so if you account what was said then and now, you’ll get the most in depth Gundam Wing review in the history of ever. This was Dustin re-watch of a series he hasn’t laid eyes on in 18 years, and boy was it ever the trip through time for him. This review is more of the in depth political spectrum review of Gundam Wing, which the politics were never understood by ANYONE who watched this on Toonami 18 years ago. This also includes the acting roles of Campbell Lane, why Wing was popular on Toonami, shout outs to Daily Anime Podcast and the secret episode that NEVER WAS, Dustin reasons for cutting back on liquor, and a whole lot more.
(58:20 – 02:39:34) The “State-Of-The-Union” Closing Remarks – To anyone who heard or saw the American State of the Union address, both Jonn and Dustin give their accounts and rants on what was said, seen, and about American politics in general. This should come to no one surprise to those who ever listened to a single second of this podcast closing remarks, because politics comes up in the discussion all the time. This also includes Ghost TCR commentary, Dustin breaks out his inner Alex Jones once again, the life of Barron Trump, Goof Troop discussion, The Legacy of South Carolina Senator Strom Thurmond, cryptocurrency rants, the 2018 State of the Podcast address, and much more.

Happy New Year!!! 2018 will be our year and savior for humanity until such time when social media says its the worst year ever (like the end of every year on Twitter). So what better way to reign in the new year with our hosts ranting about Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
(0:00 – 2:40:15) The Dark Side Review! Star Wars: The Last Jedi – This film seems to be equally split between those who love and hate this film, just like the balance of the force. Dustin, Jonn and guest Vekou (who shows up about 45 minutes in) state their views on the film. As you can expect, spoilers are afoot in great detail. This lets us compare the Star Wars films to the Fast and Furious film series, how Jonn dog spoke up for animal rights on this film, how Disney can royally screw up a beloved science fiction series, and much more!
(2:40:15 – 4:27:09) Christmas Closing Remarks – This was recorded the next night with Jonn and Dustin keeping the mics warm on a post Christmas night, and more sound proof for Dustin since he recorded in his “sound proof” safe space closet (making his mic sound louder in the process). The remarks include bathroom gender rules, Dustin panels at Big Fandom Greenville, more Star Wars talk, what we got for Christmas, upcoming AnimEigo Kickstarters, video game talk, James Bond talk, Dustin Christmas movies he saw this year, 80’s cartoon themes and the goofyness of Voltron, Chris Chan and Ghost talk, the fall of Bitcoin and so much more!

It’s an Alvis Day miracle to have another yearly Christmas Special ready to go! So this year Jonn and Dustin talk about another miracle of an anime that we never thought would be fansubbed, but it came to fruition. This year we review Penguin’s Memory.
(0:00 – 35:15) Alvis Day Review: Penguins Memory – This is an anime that has been mentioned on this podcast in the past many times, but it was only a matter of time before certain fansubbers finally got around to making this anime to the anime fandom public. It’s like the movie The Deer Hunter, but with penguins, only it’s not really The Deer Hunter. Penguins Memory is a unique film based off the premise off Suntory Beer ads mixed in with the common ethos of 1980’s Vietnam War movies at the time. It’s truly a film that anime fans need to check out eventually. Along with both hosts staying on topic for once, there is the off topic discussions of how CW superhero shows are trash, the passing of Hiromi Tsuru and other anime featuring animals fighting in wars.
(35:15 – 1:39:35) Closing Remarks – Typical banter follows this segment with Chris Chan latest stupidity on video and stuff about Ghost from TCR. Included is how Dustin has finally graduated university (since he’s been in school since three podcasts ago), the failings of Roy Moore, the US soldier that defected to North Korea died recently, how dumb people Master thesis’s can be, Thor 3 and Justice League discussion, upcoming movies in 2018, the Disney/Fox merger and a whole lot more. Stay tuned for the greatest religious story ever told by Captain Murphy in the zinger.

Holy Crap, two podcast episodes a week apart! How can that be? Well it is, and Dustin and Jonn are able to give you another RightStuf corporate sponsored Gundam podcast. Not only do we review what goodies we got in the mail from RighStuf, but also review Gundam Thunderbolt and Belladonna of Sadness.
(0:00 – 1:05:00) RightStuf GundamCast Review: Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt – It’s been months, but were here to deliver more Gundam to you guys. This time Jonn and Dustin review the web short series Gundam Thunderbolt, which for a one year war Gundam short, its probably the darkest that One Year War Gundam has done so far. Both hosts discuss the ONA, but also mention gross number statistics of estimated losses in the One Year War, trying to compare those numbers with losses in World War II, AU vs UC content, the different kinds of Jazz that exist, upcoming Gundam Bluray content and reviews of content currently out and much more.
(1:05:00 – 1:26:40) Your Grandpa’s Hidden Anime Porn Review: Belladonna of Sadness – Belladonna is the oldest anime we’ve reviewed so far on this site, and by far the most visually interesting since Angel’s Egg. Despite being an art house smut style movie produced by Osamu Tezuka, it has a decent story to go with it which is loosely based off this book. But none of that matters when you got psychedelic imagery of phallic animation being shown on screen (links NSFW just FYI). This also gets Jonn and Dustin talking about the other works by director Eiichi Yamamoto, the sexual revolution in the 1960’s, and what kind of people (other than the hosts) that would find out about this anime at 2 a.m. on a Saturday night on TCM.
(1:26:40 – 2:00:37) Closing Remarks: Nothing too much to say, other than Chris Chan has a new GF, which a new saga will unfold from that. Dustin has joined up with a local Gundam group, Ted Cruz leaked porn scandal, Jonn trolls the podcast with trains and more.

So, its been 4 years since we titled our last episode as a “General Discussion” episode, so we figured it’s time for a sequel episode, longer and (un)better than ever! Of course, this is coming out after Hurricane Henry and during Irma, so it’s pretty fitting to release this episode in this manner. This time we are joined by guests Josh and Daft to talk about bad animated/live action movies like Batman and Harley Quinn and Death Note.
(0:00 – 1:19:30) Something of a Review: Batman and Harley Quinn / Death Note – We figured we can just bundle this into one segment with everyone crapping on the live action Americanized Death Note and Batman and Harley Quinn. This comes with discussing what “really” constitutes as rape, how Bruce Timm needs to come clean and make animated Batman porno films, the changes made in Death Note, talking about the Defenders show, Jonn moving back to Poseidon’s Revenge on Texas, and much more.
(1:19:30 – 02:31:24) Closing Remarks – Here the hosts dive right into Dustin banning from Toonzone after over 11 years of (dis)service, the symposium of a pure autistic post on Toonzone, Toonami speculations of upcoming shows in the future, anime on Kickstarter, Gundam dubbing talk and a bunch other nonsense.

This is just a quick bonus to put out there till the next episode comes out. Against the judgement of Dustin and Jonn, both decided to do a commentary track to Dustin crappy Gundam Fan Films he made in high school between 2001/2002.
It’s pretty simple to set up, just click on the links below to pull up the movies, and play the podcast episode along with the video for the commentary track. Of course you could just watch the uploaded commentary tracks that are already on our Youtube channel to enjoy, because why put in the extra work. The audio of the commentary track is out there as a podcast episode in case no one wants to spend one second of their lives looking at the crap Dustin made 15 odd years ago, and he wouldn’t blame them.
Just like the podcast, this commentary track goes off topic on things like what was said at the SDCC 2017, comparing quality to Gatomatt videos, a brief history of Gundam in America, Home Movies, Dustin house in Apex, North Carolina, and much more.

So this is after 4th of July, but we’re still wanna celebrate the red white and blue on the best DC movie in the past few years, Wonder Woman.
(0:00 – 1:00:13) Movie Review – Wonder Woman: Both Jonn and Dustin saw the recent DC Cinemoviematic Universe film and thought its probably the best film DC has done since the Nolan Batman films. This of course doesn’t start happening till about 18 minutes in because Jonn talks about how Armenians hacked his iPhone, and also includes a brief history lesson on the German Empire, terrible Superman comics, the Megyn Kelly/Alex Jones interview debacle, Starzan S is out on Bluray in Japan, and upcoming movies.
(1:00:13 – 2:09:43) Closing Remarks: Jonn talks about bad CGI films from Video Brinquedo, A man sneaks into an all female showing of Wonder Woman and survives, people who play Minecraft and freak out when their mom calls them, Trumps tweets sound like sitcom characters and Korean cartoons talk. Dustin mentions his root canal woes, doing panels at a local con coming up, crap to buy from ebay, organizing a local church video game tournament, the SNES Mini talk, bad Gundam fan films made in high school, a brief stint on the Transformers film, and a ton more.

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.

Tis the season for Christmas and space governments to be formed, as Dustin and Jonn review Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin – Eve of Destiny.
(0:00 – 54:23) Review: Gundam The Origin: Eve of Destiny – From all of the Gundam the Origin OVA’s we have covered, this one is no different in how great these adaptations have been in adapting the Yazuhiko story from the manga. Both hosts sum up what is in the OVA as usual, but of course get Side (7) tracked on other dumb topics. These topics include how Gary Johnson would grow weed on the moon, fat redneck kids who review food, Feminists probably don’t watch Gundam, people who defend LameDam: Iron Bored-ed Orphans, Dustin and his past high school Gundam films (which may or may not ever see the light on YouTube), economics around the rental system between Japan v. America, Gundam talk and much more.
(54:23 – 55:43) Promo’s – We gotta throw in that bit to help promote AnimeCart now, which whatever you need from them, they can hook you up son!!
(55:43 – 2:32:23) Post- November 9th Closing Remarks (aka POST-ELECTION-AFTERMATH-BREAKDOWN-END-OF-THE-WORLD-DISCUSSION) – Yep, the American election happened, and Dustin and Jonn have their say on it, for a good while. Whatever your opinion of the election might be, don’t write us off on our viewpoints just yet, or jack our rides. Dustin discusses the point of his article that a few people read, former TZ members who got banned, Dustin going to YALLFest and GETTIN HITCHED!!, our stories on seeing dead things, land zoning discussions and much more!

It’s that time a year again kiddies, where the Devilman comes to visit our podcast with bad tidings and fear. Only this time, he sends us this terrible 2004 live action movie instead of an anime.
(0:00 – 1:00:35) Review: Devilman (2004) – If there is one thing anyone can point out that isn’t true or cool about Devilman, its gonna be this film. We pretty much spoil about every scene so you don’t have to see it, unless you really want too by your own ambition. Both Jonn and Dustin point out at least one positive aspect of this movie, and that is Bob “The Beast” Sapp, Japan number one super, fantastical, black, kawaii celebrity! We also go off topic a bit (with a film like this, can you blame us?) on topics like who in the hell dubbed this movie, how CGI M.D. Geist spokesmecha is better looking than this, what to expect at your local redneck gun show, dumb reasons to promote Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters from Beverly Hills, and so much more.
(1:00:35 – 2:20:11) Closing Remarks – To keep up with current events, both Dustin and Jonn talk about what we have been keeping up the theme in the past closing remarks, which consist of twitter people and the American election. This time, Love that Goku goes off on Britney Spears son for dressing like Frieza, how this election could actually be rigged than Donald just assuming it might be, Dustin puts up content for The Odyssey talking about Gundam in the West and AnimeDrome, Jonn talks about what he did at Phoenix FanFest, the moral dilemma on bootleg merchandise, Tim Eldred Yamato documentary, Zeonic Republic latest blunder on their Char’s Deleted Affair release, dumb people on our chatroom, Gundam talk and much more.

Once again, it’s back to back Gundam on this podcast, which might be the last time for a while, where this time Jonn and Dustin cover Gundam the Origin OVA 3: Dawn of Rebellion.
(0:00 – 17:16) Pre-Review Movie Review of Finding Dory – Sometime before the hosts get into Gundam, Finding Dory came out and Dustin talked about a bit of the film with Jonn, which then lead to the real issue of the movie: entitled millennials who think the movie is all about their childhood needs and not for the rest of the kids in the theaters. There is also some other talk about other kids movies that take forever to come out, and the lives of the rich and stupid of the New England States of ‘Merika!
(17:16 – 1:04:58) Review: Gundam the Origin OVA 3 Review – Both hosts sit down and cover the overall OVA in general of what happens, so maybe some spoilers are afoot. In all honesty, both hosts spent most of this time talking about other Gundam stuff, anime on American TV, ideas for Sunrise and Bandai to get off their butts and make a proper 40th Anniversary release of Gundam the Origin for a new audience, the change in political and individualism within Gundam, and much more.
(1:04:58 – 01:24:21) Closing Remarks: With this recording happening sometime at the end of June, both host were scrapping the bottom for closing remarks comments, but managed to scrounge some up. Jonn mentions more Ghost accusations, the conspiracy of what was in Gundam the Origin Mobile Suit Development, ideas for our 100th episode coming up soon, and much more.
SPEAKING OF OUR UPCOMING 100TH EPISODE!!: Ok, so we at the podcast take it as anyone reading this knows how to access this site from the web and gets our episodes from here. If you do, you know the internet better than most people. So here is the deal: Episode 100 is coming up and both hosts want you listeners to send us some suggestions on what to do. Should we read email sent by you? Should we do a review of something? Show off our anime collection on video? Demolition Derby? I dunno, you tell us! So to send us suggestions, email us at: email@example.com, or you could tweet at us over at @AoYPodcast. It’s that simple to use guys! Depending on how many people submit ideas, Dustin and Jonn will pick the most doable idea and execute it, and there will be recognition for it! So let the podcast know by Episode 99 and we will see what happens!

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.

We can officially announce that we have once again sold out to “The Man,” particularly the RightStuf Man. This time we have a pretty full show of Jonn and Dustin reviewing RightStuf! Mobile Suit Gundam and Zeta Gundam Blu-ray Sets, Space Adventure Cobra DVD Set and the latest Bond movie Spectre.
(0:00 – 52:08) The RightStuf! Product Review – Gundam Blu-Ray’s and Cobra DVD Set: After about taking a month for both hosts to get their products from RightStuf!, they can both talk about the special features and quality of the packages. Jonn and Dustin talk about mostly the 30th Anniversary interviews with the Gundam staff on the second blu-ray collection of Mobile Suit Gundam, which is just laughing at how old men can still hold grudges from a show that’s 37 years old now. Both host’s talk about the Buichi Terasawa interview from the Cobra DVD’s and its packaging, and our own review of that show will come out in due time. We also mention general Gundam talk, other mech shows, Terasawa and his Big Booty loves, SJW v. not-anime-yet, being praised in class for being a nerd, and more.
(52:08 – 53:19) RightStuf! Bootleg Promo: Our podcast never got an “official” promo from RighStuf!, so it was best to make up our own for starters. Right now (as of March 5th), Gundam and Vertical had a sale, which might still be going on? We want to thank Vanessa Williams for providing the background song for our promo, and we would really like to thank her lawyers for not finding out about this podcast because we used such song that would fit with this RightStuf! promo without “official” consideration from her record label. Now moving on…
(53:19 – 1:19:35) Movie Review – Spectre: Here we have an example of a review seen by one person who saw it the day it came out, and other who saw it the other day. The time gap is large enough to show that the former forgot most of the movie, leaving the latter to pick up the slack of events that happened. Long story short, both host made this review short and to the point, and talked about other James Bond related things. I mean, its been 3 years since both hosts talked about James Bond, so hopefully the next film comes a bit sooner.
(1:19:35 – 2:14:40) Closing Remarks (a.k.a Dustin disses on Initial D haters): Like the usual formula, Chris Chan gets brought up to talk about how he self promotes people he doesn’t like without knowing it, which then leads to Dustin throwing down his Initial D street cred against Anime World Order review of Initial D, and tries to answer that why question the AWO hosts asked on their podcast. You could say Dustin cranks up his hypothetical Toyota AE86 for our 86th podcast, because that is how fate would have it! This of course leads to people we know on twitter who are having a hard time in life, former AIM and Toonzone drama, and more.

Well it’s that time of the year again, where you’re flat broke from shopping from other people, and you have all that wrapping paper to pick up off the ground from your kids. We hope that this episode is the best gift you’ve gotten this year, because we decide to review the latest Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin – Artesia’s Sorrow OVA…
(0:00 – 51:42) Christmas Special Review – Gundam the Origin 2 OVA – We understand this anime came out back in October, and its only taken us now to finally sit down and review it. Our reason would be, its all
Jonn Dustin fault, so there is someone to blame. We actually really liked this OVA, and are happy to see how well it will adapt the manga story, a manga story that Dustin is still reading, after having volume 5 for over a year. Will he ever finish it? Well, his lazy butt is on break, so there isn’t an excuse there. As much as our host try to stay on topic, dumb things keep coming up like talking about that crappy Yogi Bear movie, how FOX can’t make a good cartoon list, how we didn’t care about the internet opinions on Gundam the Origin, comparing real life events to Gundam, Resident Evil 4 talk, Gundam in general talk, Texan towns like Gun Barrel, DeKalb and O’Donnell, horse riding and country western talk, the Final Fantasy 7 remake, and much more.
(51:42 – 1:41:46) Closing Remarks – Dustin explains his reasoning (or lack thereof) for having a drunk podcast, Dragonball Z general summary, The GRAND RETURN OF GHOST!, Chris Chan demands an embargo on all Gamestop and Best Buy locations, Donald Trump vs. Ever Muslim Ever!, opinions on the Syrian Refugee issue, making movies for North Korea, Jonn grandmother passing, and much more.
OP – Our song to enjoy before ani-twitter shows up to ruin 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…

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.

So this episode might be the only thing released in November, but oh well, since thats how it goes when papers are due and test are being studied for. At least this time for Zeonic sake, a con report isn’t released 3 months after the con ended, but only by a month!! We totally know what were doing, as Zeonic gets to dive into his adventures about BanzaiCon 2014!
(0:00 – 1:06:41) Con Report: BanzaiCon III (2014): This is the first time Zeonic has stayed for a South Carolina con for more than a day, and he has some good ventures out of his experience. This is all entailed about getting locked out of your car, cats that break computer equipment, broken air conditioning systems, watching SEC college football, getting rid of junk, people who leave shoes in con rooms, meeting cool Trekkies, and outdoing other people’s panels (at least in Zeonic mind). Of course for no logical reason, Jonn and Zeonic spiral off topic throughout the podcast about RightStuf getting Gundam, the gradual death of American Cartoons, a GIGANTIC discussion about Science Fiction films/books/etc, Ultraman talk and much more.
(1:06:41 – 1:18:20) Bonus Content: Here is the part of the podcast where Zeonic recorded the conversations from the older con attendees at BanzaiCon, where they relish in telling tales about debating the writings by Richard Matheson, Science Fiction movies, and drinking all in good fun. About half way through that the audio will fade out and in to indicate the break of when the group went out to smoke and then came back at the table. So enjoy the bonus!!

This was something I got in the mail this past week from the guys over at Colony Drop, which one of them was selling some of his games on twitter and had this title in the photo that I picked up. Upon wanting to get this game for years now to add to my Dreamcast collection, it is not what I expected it to be. The first half of the video is me trying to look at gamefaqs.com to see what the heck to do on the one FAQ guide they have on this game, which led to me failing the first mission. I was able to get it the second time around, and then decided to just call it a day from there.

So to keep up with putting out these late convention reports, Zeonic was able to report on his yearly trek to the convention land that is Animazement, that was about 3 months ago. There is really no side conversation in this one, well, minus a few things here and there as per usual.
(0:00 – 1:01:37) Convention Coverage Part 1: This had certain things Zeonic griped about regarding the parking situation in areas, comic book shop owners (which prompt Zeonic to get the Zillion CD he mentioned), Zeonic hooks up with friends to play Windjammers and other strange arcade games, meeting up with other podcasters, the issues that college campuses face regarding running anime conventions, THE TRUTH regarding what happens to Kill La Kill cosplayers in the dealers room, THE TRUTH on those damn idiots who start Marco/Polo at these conventions, and more TRUTH after the promos…
(1:01:37 – 1:04:24) Promo’s: Since we went ahead and mentioned these people on our show (and from what we gather they did the same for us on theirs) we got a promo from Alpha Counter, Mating Habits of the Modern Geek, and our old homeboyz The Daily Anime Podcast (which BTW Jeff, when are you gonna keep doing Pokemon Unicron Brothahoodz? I sent you my recording over a month ago, what are you doing with it dawg?)
(1:04:24 – 2:09:35) Convention Coverage Part 2: Zeonic starts off by having Trish Ledoux point Zeonic in the right direction to see the man that every old school anime fan wants to see (and those who gave them their hard earned Kickstarter money), Robert Woodhead. After talking to Robert for a spell, Zeonic went on a spell as well regarding the issues of Animazement handling their “rules” in terms of autograph lines, more TRUTH on overestimating the Gundam fans in anime conventions when it comes to having line limits for autographs, going to the Gundam Rising panel late (you can see the part 1 and part 2 of the panel at those links), getting the sweetest hookup from Toshifumi Yoshida, Legend of Galactic Heroes talk, MORE TRUTH on anime fans at conventions who would rather torrent every damn thing than spend any money to helping the industry, finding obscurely rare anime books from the past, Zeonic idea to do an anime convention “reenactment,” and a ton more to say.
This show has:
Windjammers…. in a nutshell, basically.
A game that should not be out in public view, just saying
14 years later, Robert still has his charm to anime fans… (just imagine 2 and a half hours of this guy, its great!)
What better way to spend the 4th of July by not working on the next podcast and playing more video games. With the digital PSN release of Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn out, i’d figure I got some time to spare and stream it on our Twitch.tv channel. It’s the same as any of the other games, but I mean its Gundam something, we take what we can get in the states am I right? Well things were going ok till the stream just decided to quit, so that’s where we are in this video.
