AoY Podcast #50 – Lisle Wilkerson Interview


Also known as: “DOOOORIIIIEEEMOOOOOON!!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 59:06)

The day has finally come, where we make our 50th Podcast episode. And what better way than to do a recorded interview with a video game voice actress like Lisle Wilkerson. You wanna know something else, this was recorded 3 months ago at the end of May, and we still have a back log of recordings. At least it shows that we will not run out of content anytime soon…

(0:00 – 59:06) Interview: Lisle Wilkerson - We are humbly joined by the voice talent behind the recent voices of Christie Monteiro and Sarah Bryant in the most recent games of Tekken and Virtua Fighter (oh yea, don’t forget about Shenmue 2 now). Of course, to anyone who plays those games, it’s hard to focus on the voice behind the 3D model that is countering your attack for the tenth time in a ranked match (remember Joy in Shenmue 2? Yea, DON’T FORGET ABOUT SHENMUE 2). We of course ask Ms. Wilkerson questions on how she was able to get her foot into the door of video game voice acting, what is the voice acting world like currently,  what it was like growing up in Japan, working with Bill Murray in Lost in Translation, chatting about her works in video games (like Crazy Taxi and OF COURSE SHENMUE 2!!), being in fixed boxing matches, the current life of Calf., her upcoming (really past) con schedule for this year, and old school anime talk. All this and more in this episode…

The terms Lisle used in this interview for the Japanese language inclined:
Hafu (ハーフ)
Kikokushijo  (帰国子女)

Anime titles that are fond of Lisle and that we even mentioned to her:
Candy Candy
Attack Number 1
Aim for the Ace
Doreamon
Hello Kitty
Gunbuster
Space Adventure Cobra
Ashita no Joe

Music Selection:

OP – I am just making sure… no one forgets about Shenmue 2

ED – Bring this song back when Crazy Taxi 3 ever gets made…

Playing Games: Pat-Labor Day Weekend SON!!!

In terms of streaming game play, through the power of Twitch we can convert our streams over to our youtube channel in order to archive our videos from now on. I’d figure what better way to celebrate the day of work than to play games about being a civil servant with a mech robot. I might do more later this week, not sure. New episode is out tomorrow BTW. 

AoY Podcast # 49 – SpringCon Report Pt 2 (Animazement 2014)

Also known as:  “I guess I should call this the Windjammers Con.
And also: “Wait, so Robocop is trying to put together a puzzle of a naked woman?”

So to keep up with putting out these late convention reports, Zeonic was able to report on his yearly trek to the convention land that is Animazement, that was about 3 months ago. There is really no side conversation in this one, well, minus a few things here and there as per usual.

(0:00 – 1:01:37) Convention Coverage Part 1: This had certain things Zeonic griped about regarding the parking situation in areas, comic book shop owners (which prompt Zeonic to get the Zillion CD he mentioned), Zeonic hooks up with friends to play Windjammers and other strange arcade games, meeting up with other podcasters, the issues that college campuses face regarding running anime conventions, THE TRUTH regarding what happens to Kill La Kill cosplayers in the dealers room, THE TRUTH on those damn idiots who start Marco/Polo at these conventions, and more TRUTH after the promos…

(1:01:37 – 1:04:24) Promo’s: Since we went ahead and mentioned these people on our show (and from what we gather they did the same for us on theirs) we got a promo from Alpha Counter, Mating Habits of the Modern Geek, and our old homeboyz The Daily Anime Podcast (which BTW Jeff, when are you gonna keep doing Pokemon Unicron Brothahoodz? I sent you my recording over a month ago, what are you doing with it dawg?)

(1:04:24 – 2:09:35) Convention Coverage Part 2: Zeonic starts off by having Trish Ledoux point Zeonic in the right direction to see the man that every old school anime fan wants to see (and those who gave them their hard earned Kickstarter money), Robert Woodhead. After talking to Robert for a spell, Zeonic went on a spell as well regarding the issues of Animazement handling their “rules” in terms of autograph lines, more TRUTH on overestimating the Gundam fans in anime conventions when it comes to having line limits for autographs, going to the Gundam Rising panel late (you can see the part 1 and part 2 of the panel at those links), getting the sweetest hookup from Toshifumi Yoshida,  Legend of Galactic Heroes talk, MORE TRUTH on anime fans at conventions who would rather torrent every damn thing than spend any money to helping the industry, finding obscurely rare anime books from the past, Zeonic idea to do an anime convention “reenactment,” and a ton more to say.

Music Selection:

OP – The current theme for all Gundam fans in America…

ED – Greatest arcade game ever…

This show has:


Windjammers…. in a nutshell, basically.


A game that should not be out in public view, just saying


14 years later, Robert still has his charm to anime fans… (just imagine 2 and a half hours of this guy, its great!)

That is how you should post in cosplay photos… (aka Evangelion in a nutshell)

 

BEHOLD, THE “TRUTH” OF ANIMAZEMENT IN ACTION!!!

Here is another example of “THE TRUTH:” You can count on one hand the amount of people at anime cons who care about Macross Plus these days…

The real question is, are you the type of person who would pay 550 bucks for Giant Gorg anything? A harsh reality indeed.

It’s Zeonic and his brother talking about seeing the theatrical viewing of Dragonball Z: Battle of Gods as they walk out of the theater (after the movie ended of course) while driving to a bookstore within the town. Well its really Zeonic and his bro talking about DBZ related stuff, and how loud the GPS is in the car. (Warning: This is pretty ghetto and I didn’t edit a thing).
