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.

Music Selection:

OP1 – We’re kinda the new kids on the block when it comes to product reviews…

OP2 – James Bond is Back!!!

ED – If podcasting was like the Fast and Furious movies, we are the Paul Walker to the AWO Dwayne Johnson…

This show has:

The next James Bond…perhaps?

What feels like the start of every Roger Moore Bond film…

This could happen to the anime community… maybe?

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.

Music Selecton:

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…

Thank you Doomstink for reminding me of Leonard Nimoy… (1:49 for the reference)

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.

Music Selection:

OP – I need to let the world know, that there is a garage band dedicated to Gundam…

ED – Just letting you listeners know, our love for you is not a lie…

The era of Nixon Censorship is upon us…

Yea, someone attempted to do a documentary about Chris Chan…


Playing Games: Gundam Side Stories Sick Day


1673

 

 

So, Zeonic has come down with a sore throat and other bodily inconveniences over the weekend. Between the sleepless nights, bad side affects from drugs and Netflix movie watching, he was able to throw in some gameplay of Mobile Suit Gundam Side Stories on the Playstation 3. Regardless of illness or not, this was going to be streamed eventually. He was able to play the missions for the Blue Destiny game, which have two sides to the story coming from both Yu and Nimbus. So if your curious on how this game looks, look no further.
