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!

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!

OP – You will see the greatness of Char come to life…

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.

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.

It’s been exaclty 18 episodes since we covered the first volume of Gundam the Origin manga, and for that… we have zero excuses as to why its been that long (no wait, it’s all Josh’s fault). The bigger question is, is it going to be take another 18 more episodes to get to volume 3? I am not even sure if we can be at liberty to answer that question at this time. But hey, we finally got around to talking about volume 2 now. We also get to dive into the Dragonball Z movie that came out last year, Battle of Gods, and finish things up with our thoughts on the last days of Sword Art Online being on Toonami. This episode was also recorded on the new mic I got, and as you can probably tell, I sound kinda different. I am still working out the kinks on how to make it sound, so well see how that goes down in the next few episodes (or if I just need to go back to the old USB Headset).
0:00 – 34:05: So after all this time of mentioning an episode to review Gundam the Origin Vol. 2 in our past episodes, that day has finally come. We pretty much discuss changes made in the manga from the anime series that we were able to point out and give our take on it. Of course, like usual fare, we don’t stay on topic much, not when I say that Brony’s have their own docutmentary, people who hate old UC Gundam shows at comic book places, general Gundam talk (cuz thats how we do it,) the dubs of Streamline anime, how Gundam was animated back in the day and much more. There was also an issue with a transition from us talking about Bright B(right)-slapping Amuro in the manga to getting in the middle of a discussion of Double Zeta. All you need to know is that is how GarageBand works for us.
34:05 – 1:05:20: After talking about this film a little bit on our AIM chatroom a few days before we recorded, we decided to also give our thoughts on last year’s Dragonball Z: Battle of Gods movie. For a film made almost 20 years after Wrath of the Dragon, it seems to be an all around fun movie for true Dragonball Z fans. This gets us to mostly talk about Dragonball Z in general (or really Zeonic’s recollection of a show he hasn’t seen in almost a decade at this point), how people think it’s a good idea to make a 1080p video of Gundam Wing openings, our favorite lolcow news and more.
1:05:20 – 1:43:20: While in the middle of Jonn’s closing remarks on Love_that_Goku becoming a Satanist, Josh brings up a much more pressing matter at hand than anything we have discussed so far, SWORD ART ONLINE IS FINALLY OVER ON TOONAMI!!!! We relished in our celebration to bring you our thoughts on the last 2 episodes of that god forsaken show. Of course, we called upon a man who we have mentioned his name in passing several times in the past; a man who is our source of SAO knowledge, and a man who can only be called upon as… “C.G.” (ChibiGoku). Along with SAO bashing and smashing, we discuss if Japanese might be true rednecks, VHS/VCR tech talk, what’s going on in Toonami, how we celebrated SAO last episode, how the new Robocop film is pretty good, and much more.
Next time, you can expect us to get into the zone for our March (and probably April) review of a particular 80’s anime gem.
We also want to give a shout out to Otaku Generation for playing our promo on their most recent episode.

The long awaited review from us is now finally out! I know we promised this like… a couple of months ago, but it’s finally out now. This week, we have our overly belated Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin review.
In this episode, we breakdown probably the best thing Yoshikazu Yasuhiko has done to date, as we go into depth on retelling of the beginnings of Mobile Suit Gundam. This also includes our general thoughts on Gundam, our thoughts on the publishing company Vertical Inc, audio issues, cool video game statues and much more.
Special Guest: Jeff from the Daily Anime Podcast
Disclaimer: I do wanna let you listeners know, Vol. 2, “Garma,” comes out on June 25th on Amazon.com and through other retailers. So if we didn’t spoil too much of this for you to check it out, and you got the dough to spend on books, then get them.

For this week in our Gundam Month, we are taken back to a time where mobile suits and bi-planes cannot co-exist, and that is in the universe of all Gundam universes, Turn A Gundam. Myself and my co-hosts saw (or should I say CHEATED into watching) the compilation movies, which did not do this series justice for us. But, with the help of Jeff from the Daily Anime Podcast as our guest host, he was able to shed some light on some of the issues between the series and the movies. And, like usual fashion, there are Spoilers to this show, but we just discussed the stuff that mattered (ie, what we couldn’t make sense of).
We also spend a moment going off topic to talk about Gundam: The Origin, people on the internet, Charlton Heston movies and general anime/Mysterious Girlfriend X talk. I also wanna mention, Gundam Breaker Beta is out on the Japanese PSN, which is the soul successor game (maybe?) to Gunpla Builders. Plus, screw the NCAA tournament, because NC State got knocked out the first round.
