3 Times MSG0079 Was Smarter Than Most Sci-Fi I Know 3 Times MSG0079 Was Smarter Than Most Sci-Fi I Know

Almost a year ago I fell into a hole that is Gundam. And while I don’t think I’ll ever be able to dig my way of here, I can scream up at you about the cool stuff I found in here.

The BFGs of the Gundam Universes  The BFGs of the Gundam Universes 

With Gundam looking to have a big year in 2018 with multiple stories potentially including Gundam OO surprising potential sequel. I thought it would be a fun time to take a light hearted look and lighten things up and talk less about the war is hell side of Gundam and instead talk about the other draw to the series…

Building My First Gunpla - A Beginner's Guide to Building Your First Gundam Model Building My First Gunpla - A Beginner's Guide to Building Your First Gundam Model

Okay, first of all I’m a beginner at model making. I’ve always been interested in making a Gundam model since they looked really cool from the models I’ve seen, but I’ve always been intimidated by the sheer number of parts and the DIY nature of Gundam building. It doesn’t help either that when I search for beginner…

Rating the Mobile Suit Gundam 00 Opening Themes Rating the Mobile Suit Gundam 00 Opening Themes

Music in the Gundam series has always captivated me. I remember after watching Mobile Suit Gundam Wing as a kid, I downloaded the songs “Just Communication” and “Rhythm Emotion” from the opening themes, and even today, nearly two decades later, I still listen to them. So when I finished watching Mobile Suit Gundam 00…

Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz - Glory of Losers Vol. 1 an Odd Take on an Old Classic Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz - Glory of Losers Vol. 1 an Odd Take on an Old Classic

While Gundam Wing may not be the best the Gundam metafranchise has to offer, after more then two decades the series remains near and dear to my heart as one of my first anime. As such when I heard its tie in manga The Glory of Losers was getting an official English release after more then a decade of serialization in…

Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans - Episodes 49 - "McGillis Fareed" Impressions Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans - Episodes 49 - "McGillis Fareed" Impressions

As the pentultimate episode of Iron-Blooded Orphans comes to a close and we stare into the abyss that is the ending of this series many things continue to rush through my mind and I assume many of yours. Not the least of which is what is the end game for this series, as at this current junction I honestly have no…

Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans - Episodes 48 - "Promise" Impressions - Part II

Hello and welcome back to Part II of this weeks special Iron-Blooded Orphans Impressions double write up. You will have noticed by now I never do this, if I miss a week I try to just double it up. However lets be honest here, we are approaching the end of the series and there is no way this episode was not going to…

Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans - Episodes 47 - "Scapegoat" Impressions - Parts I

As we quite rapidly approach what now seems like the end of Iron-Blooded Orphans taking stock of the series is only natural. As I wrote last time I think Iron-Blooded Orphans has established itself as one of the premier if not the premier non-Universal Century Gundam. Starting off a little strange and paced - oddly -…

So you like "The Expanse" So you like "The Expanse"

*** Welcome to the first of an ongoing series of posts that uses popular western movies and television shows to offer recommendations for anime series of a similar bent. For readers who are unfamiliar with anime, the featured series may serve as a good entry point. For the already converted, head to the comments and…

Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans - "The Man Who Holds the Soul" - Episode 44 Impressions Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans - "The Man Who Holds the Soul" - Episode 44 Impressions

When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. Right now it seems McGillis is learning this lesson and others on the reality and nature of power as things continue to pick up speed in Iron-Blooded Orphans. This is especially true with the Gundam Bael on the field and under McGillis control, what this means…

Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans - "Revealed Intentions" - Episode 43 Impressions Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans - "Revealed Intentions" - Episode 43 Impressions

Oh boy, well that was an episode wasn’t it? So much to talk about came out of this one as this series is really kicking into high gear with this third... or is it the fourth amazing episode in a row? Honestly it’s getting hard to keep track considering how this series just keeps on going at such break neck speed by…

Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans - "Settlement" - Episode 42 Impressions

“Jasley Donomikols have you said your prayers yet? Tekkadan will not forgive you. Tekkadan will never let you go. So, go ahead and scatter the red flowers upon the graves” Damn, you know you are done when the opening narration says you are...

Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans - "Lit By a Blazing Sun" - Episode 40 Impressions

Idiok! Aniki... aniki... As I wrote last week this episode had three likely routes to take and Mari Okada and her team over at Sunrise went with the gut punch. Last week I felt this outcome was simultaneously unlikely but also the best choice for going forward for the series. That being said I’m still a little angry…

Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans - "Counsel" - Episode 39 Impressions  Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans - "Counsel" - Episode 39 Impressions 

Oh great another round of raise your death flags... after an extended break for the winter holidays Iron-Blooded Orphans returns this week. Now while the episode is relatively quiet compared to the last few episodes this calm proves to be short. As a lot of pieces are moving to make things hard for our heroes,…

Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans - Stained Wings - Episode 36 Impressions

After a few terrific episodes of Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans it was only a matter of time before the series ran low on fuel and that happened this week. While not bad per se it just didn’t have that kick that the last few weeks have had. While we learned a lot it’s mostly just infermation I had already infered and…

Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans - A Plan Revealed - Episodes 33 & 34  Blowout!

How is everyone doing? Better then myself I hope, I’ve been busy, sick, then busy again and as such we have another Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Spectacular no... Extravaganza... no Blowout, yes a Blowout! I do have to say I’m running out of exciting words to show this is a special two parter. Which honestly is less…

Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans - The War With No Name - Episodes 31 & 32 Impressions Extravaganza!  Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans - The War With No Name - Episodes 31 & 32 Impressions Extravaganza! 

I’m really testing my luck here with these two part write ups. As once again over the past two weeks we have had another couple of episodes that flowed perfectly together. With Episode 31 “Silent War” and Episode 32 “My Friend” we saw the story of the “War With No Name” a short war with big consequences for the main…

Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans Season 2 Episodes 29 & 30 Impressions Spectacular! Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans Season 2 Episodes 29 & 30 Impressions Spectacular!

Hey guys and sorry for the delay in Episode 4's write up and being a bit late for this two episode spectacular. I can assure you I won’t be making a habit of it, I hope my Worst of Gundam post tied you all over though for Gundam content. However that being said we’re back and we’ve got some things to discuss as it…

The Worst of Gundam The Worst of Gundam

Once upon a time I wrote about Gundam’s best, the cream of the crop. It was tough actually as Gundam has a lot going for it and some classics. However this, this is easier as when Gundam is bad Gundam is BAD. These are not just bad, no these are the worst, so sit back and “enjoy” as we look back at the worst examples…
