Ani-Gamers Podcast #025 - Space Racists

Ashley Williams, sarcastic marine and confirmed space racist.

Hosts: Evan "Vampt Vo" Minto, Mitchell "MitchyD" Dyer, Elliot Page
Topic: "What'cha Been Doing?"

We're back, this time with a new format for our shows (and a new hosting service — Podbean!). Instead of having What'cha Been Doing? segments before every discussion, we will be recording shorter podcasts dedicated to freeform discussion alongside episodes that only contain a review or a panel discussion. Thus, all of the episodes should clock in at 30-40 minutes, which should hopefully result in an acceleration of our release schedule. And don't you worry — we'll still be doing our very best to get a variety of guest hosts on the podcast on a regular basis.

For this episode, I talk with Ani-Gamers staffers Mitchy and Elliot about what we've been watching, reading, and playing. The major discussions include Ode to Kirihito and Mass Effect (the original). By the way, I apologize for some of the weird sound problems (Mitchy's noisy recording and the occasional echoes). They should be fixed for next episode.

Show notes and links after the break.

[00:00] Intro: YOU WA SHOCK!

[00:17] Opening Song: "Ai wo Torimodose" by Crystal King (Fist of the North Star OP)

[00:41] Introduction falls apart. Elliot breaks the fourth wall.

[04:45] Elliot is reading Buddha.

[08:17] Evan is reading Ode to Kirihito. Tezuka's very similar MW is also mentioned.

[16:50] Evan is playing Mass Effect. Mitchy is playing Mass Effect 2, but he's not talking about it. We also throw in some Dragon Age: Origins discussion.

[29:47] Elliot is watching Hidamari Sketch.

[33:35] Mitchy was playing Darksiders, until he got too annoyed to finish.

[37:56] Evan and Elliot are watching the original Mobile Suit Gundam movie trilogy.

[44:28] Finally, Elliot is playing the Star Trek Online beta.

[46:05] We finish it off with the typical show outro. Make sure to visit DownWriteFierce and Luke and Elliot's Bearfighting Extravaganza and follow us on Twitter at AniGamers (the official Ani-Gamers account) VamptVo, MitchyD, and elliotpage.

[48:03] Ending Song: "Ai wo Torimodose" by Crystal King (Fist of the North Star OP)

Awesome podcast guys.
I have being always wanted to read MW but the darkness of its theme always pulled me back.
I totally agree on how awesome the Original Gundam Trilogy are.
Buddha is a fantastic read and it makes me sad the there are still people in the anime/manga fandom that do not know who Osamu Tezuka was : (

Elliot Page said...

Note: I cant remember volunteering to comment first. I probably did, though. Sorry!

Evan Minto (Vampt Vo) said...

Thanks for listening, Erwin!

I actually haven't read MW yet either, but I think that its darkness (especially in comparison to Tezuka's works for children, like Astro Boy) is what makes it so interesting and worth checking out.

Buddha is a great introduction to Tezuka for new fans. It was the first thing I read from him after picking up volume one of Astro Boy, and I fell in love with it instantly.

Mass Effect was an amazing game. Not to mention the.... erm... bit with the blue alien towards the end.
