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

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.
