The Weekly Stuff Podcast #388 – Mobile Suit Gundam AGE Arcs 3 and 4 Review & Discussion
It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts.
Today’s main topic is another Weekly Suit Gundam extravaganza, as we finish up the underrated gem Mobile Suit Gundam AGE, but before that, there’s a solid 80 minutes of non-Gundam material, from Jonathan’s thoughts on David Lowery’s incredible The Green Knight to news of Jodie Whittaker and Chris Chibnall leaving Doctor Who, to Scarlett Johansson suing Disney over Black Widow, and the ongoing dumpster fire that is Activision/Blizzard’s response to serious allegations of endemic harassment and discrimination. And then it’s on to the 3rd and 4th arcs of Gundam Age, where the show makes another jump to a new generation, as we join young Kio Asuno on his journey to learn the true nature of the Vegan and their world, reunite with his pirate father, and to bring his grandfather Flit back from the brink of his vengeful vendetta. It all builds to an outstanding conclusion, with a truly terrific set of final episodes that brings the series full circle in powerful fashion, and along the way we have all sorts of fun and interesting things to talk about, making for a great discussion about a Gundam series that deserves a much better reputation than it’s previously enjoyed.
