The Weekly Stuff Podcast #413 – Mobile Suit Gundam The Origin Part III Review
It’s time for a new 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.
A legend is born in Part III of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin – Dawn of Rebellion, which sees Casval Rem Deikun adopt – er, violently steal – the identity of Char Aznable, and gradually develop the colorful, calculating persona made so iconic in Gundam ’79. It’s one of the most entertaining episodes in the history of Gundam, an archetypal military academy story built on the foundation of Char’s twisted friendship with Garma Zabi, and all leading inexorably towards the horrors of the One-Year War. We discuss that at length as today’s main topic, but before diving into Gundam, you’ll also hear Sean talk about Genshin Impact, hear Jonathan’s thoughts on (finally!) watching HBO’s venerable masterpiece Deadwood, and learn our reaction to the latest slew of Doctor Who rumors!
Enjoy, and come back next week for our long-awaited, extremely belated review and discussion of Persona 5 Royal!
