OTVG is back at it again with a post-Christmas episode covering two big DG shows: the 12/20 Korakuen show with the DOI DARTS~~ main event, and Final Gate from Christmas day. Here our thoughts on all the matches from both shows, including some very divergent takes on the controversial Final Gate main event! Plus, some NOAH talk inexplicably runs in and boy howdy does Milo (the artist formerly known as Kay) have some things to say about Atsushi Kotoge.

Meanwhile, we discuss match #2 in our Retro Rewatch Series, as Milo’s pick gives us the wonderful gift of the Toryumon Japan 4-way six man from 2003, Crazy MAX vs. Shin M2K vs. Do FIXER vs. Italian Connection! We also tackle a couple of questions, John tries to shoehorn in Japanese (and completely botches the word for “word” on their first try), and more!

Please note that this is your absolute last chance to vote in the 1st Annual OTVG Year-End Awards, as ballots will be CLOSING on January 4th, 2016 (at 8 pm EST)! If you don’t get your ballot in by then, it will not be counted! Please go to https://bit.ly/OTVG-Awards16 to find the ballot and then e-mail it to openthevoicegate@gmail.com. Results will be announced in a post on VOW shortly after balloting closes, and we’ll discuss them all in detail on the next episode of Open the Voice Gate!
