Great episode! I've been putting off buying Origin volume 5 for weeks now, but after listening I quickly ordered it. Seriously, when are those royalty checks arriving for you?

Also, ill-informed Neo failed to inform the listeners that there is an English dub of VOTOMS' first episode.

With regards to the toyota replacing robots with humans story, the concern for me is that it means the robots will be out of jobs... isn't it always the malcontents that are the first to cause trouble?

This is the best Gundam The Origins Volume to date. I didn't know this was coming so I was pretty surprised after I got past the initial parts and into the meat of the Zeon history lesson.

Who didn't want to know more about Ramba Ral and his whole supporting cast? Also all the info we got about the Zabi family was great. It was a stretch that Casval would end up living with Char like that coincidentally, but once you let that go everything in this volume was just awesome.
Even as we speak, the stealth bombers of the Brotherhood of Dada are swooping silently overhead. They’re using stealth bombs which level whole cities without even the slightest trace of noise or damage. Nothing remains of the world you knew and still you stand in the ruins, acting as if nothing has changed.

I don't know why Dorothy gets hate either. :(

Nice, Battlestar quote SBR. :D

Naming your Roombas? Uh-oh...

I am convinced that when the End of Days happens, robots will be there. No, I'm serious.

I love how you put that Neo: "You know those little white seals they used to club?"

well, if you look at those old Star Wars comics from Marvel, that were based on an early treatment of the script (and the old VHS tapes) Han did shoot first. :D

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! "My Boyfriend is a Pilot" in the Old Timey voice. I nearly died...

that's all for now, i haven't seen Votoms yet and haven't finished Vol. 5 yet.
