Colony Drop: A Gundam Podcast

2d ago
We discuss our lists of five battles, characters, mobile suits, scenarios, or situations we want to see more of in future Gundam projects.  Isaac digs deep for more faction lore, including the nukes of Blue Cosmos, the corporate militaries in the Ad Stella timeline, and even all seven space wars!  Meanwhile, Brian asks for clarity on the rarely referenced Four Avengers, the mysterious Valkyrja frames, and the wannabe noble Buch family.  Plus, we talk about the Bugs for the second episode in a row - that has to be some sort of Gundam podcast record!  Let us know what you wan ..read more

You might have been thinking, "Wow, did Gundam 00 really kill Brian and Isaac?"  The answer is no.  We would never relent to our nemesis!  On this episode, we focus all our newtype potential into finishing the fight against the Innovade menace in Gundam 00 Season 2!  This show raises the stakes in the back half as Ribbons abuses his brain WiFi powers; Graham becomes Mr. Weeaboo; Lyle replaces Neil even though cyborg-Neil is a way better idea; Louise and Saji forget how to use a phone; Sumeragi hooks up with Allelujah (or was it Hallelujah?); and Setsuna evolves into an Inno ..read more

Finally, the time has come to face our nemesis.  We embark on an exhausting discussion/review of Mobile Suit Gundam 00 Season 1!  While Celestial Being tries to eradicate war, we find that Sunrise did not learn from Gundam Wing's lessons on boredom; Alejandro is The Man with the Golden Gun; OO beats SEED in volume but not in the physics department; and that spider mobile armors truly are the fiercest killers in the mobile weapon kingdom!  Plus, Isaac prays for nukes and issues a PSA about buying GN Drives from Temu.  Lock-on!  Lock-on!  Lock-on ..read more

We board the Thoroughbred, a covert Pegasus-class ship, armed with Gundam Units 4 & 5 and head toward Granada to fend off Zeon during the final stage of the One Year War!  While Gundam pilots Ford Romfellow and Luce Cassell work on their teamwork, Isaac declares there are just too many damn Gundams!  #OnlyOneGundam!  Zeon counters with the skeptical General Nord and the blunt object named Mallet Sanguine in the terrifyingly fast Act Zaku from Pezun.  Can the Gundam pilots get it together in time to stop Mallet’s rage?  Plus, we digest the rocky Konpei Island vs. Co ..read more

If Gundam Evolution taught us anything, it's that Sunrise ripped off the wrong game.  But here at Sunset, we are smarter than that.  We know exactly which game Sunrise should rip off next.  Join us as we lay the foundation for what would easily be one of the most fun Gundam games of all time: Gundam Smash Bros.!  We discuss potential characters, stages, items, assist trophies, and more!  Plus, we hit tangents of all kinds including Diddy Kong Racing and Wizpig, IG-88 and R2-D2, and whether the SEED Freedom film might include a Kira Yamatwo.  Extra points for any l ..read more

by Colony Drop
5M ago
We tour the ruins of Side 4 in Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: December Sky and Bandit Flower where the Federation's Moore Brotherhood goes head-to-head with Zeon's Living Dead Division for control of the Thunderbolt Sector during the One Year War.  Or as we like to think of it - that time when a bunch of Federation volunteers led by some rich kids fought amputees over control of a junkyard in a universe where ice sinks.  We discuss how prosthetic technology seems to have regressed, Zeon's patented shoot n' scoot strategy, the Federation's tendency to slap first and ask questions lat ..read more

We head back to the front lines of the One Year War to read the 2002 manga series Mobile Suit Gundam: Lost War Chronicles!  We join up with Matt Healy’s Special Forces Experimental Unit as they trade blows with Ken Bederstadt’s Zeon Foreign Legion across the Earth.  Despite the Tokyopop version missing the beginning, middle, and end, this manga surprises us in the best ways!  We hear Zeon accents once again, see tanks given no quarter, watch as Ken earns a pitiful ace pilot name, and even visit the Cosmodrome!  Can Matt lead his team to victory?  Let's find out!   ..read more

The time has come to revisit G-Saviour - the first Gundam live action film from way back in 1999!  If you don't CONSENT to this experience, now is your chance to back out!  Join us as our hero Mark Curran serves up a sassy one-liner almost as often as his old pal Jack tries to murder someone; General Garneaux gets hot and heavy after green champagne; Mimi can't decide if she's a double agent or just a woman scorned; Gaia's engineers and farmers are unfairly fed to the mobile suit combat meat grinder; and we pine for the lineart designs compared to the end products.  Plus, we dis ..read more
