In this episode, the podcast comes together on blockbuster movie sized proportions, where we are able to get us a full house “Avengers Assemble” style gang together to talk about not only one show out of this current anime season, but also to discuss the latest Avengers film. Even though disastrous internet quality tries to foil our review plans, we still are able to suit up with returning guest Daft”PunkFan”37 and VeemonJosh. Listen as we all dawn our podcast alter ego’s to discuss Kyokai no Rinne and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

(0:00 – 30:08) Review – Kyokai no Rinne: This was an anime that came under Zeonic radar a few weeks ago as he was working on his Mamoru Oshii presentation for his Art History class, because when one browses Wikipedia for Rumiko Takahashi and sees that her recent manga became an anime, one is inclined to check into it. As of this review, only Jonn and Zeonic saw the first few episodes, but it runs pretty much like a typical Takahashi show, which wasn’t all that bad really. This also leads into discussion on a leaked pilot for a Clerks TV series, how Sentai Filmworks obtained Rinne, and Takahashi’s work in general.

(30:08 – 32:01) Podcast Promo’s: Alpha Counter just released their own review of Avengers: Age of Ultron recently, and Dave and Joel continue to heat up the mics some more involving Jojo’s and other stuff. Speaking of Avengers…

(32:01 – 1:23:00) Non-Anime Review – Avengers: Age of Ultron: We’re definitely nerds over comic book movies every year, only because Marvel keeps making the films that draw in the biggest crowds. This year we get another Avengers movie, and we have our own personal gripes and viewpoints on the film. This gets us into discussing SJW style twitter comments by JesuOtaku, a random encounter with past guest ChibiGoku (which doesn’t last long), general comic book talk, Totally Spies reference, the true target demographic for comic book super heroes shows and toys, and our thoughts on the Batman vs Superman trailer. All this and a whole lot more in this episode. Stay tuned for part “b”…

Music Selection:

OP1 – Get sucked into the latest Takahashi show…

OP2 – Avengers… ASSEMBLE!

ED – This Civil War has torn us all apart…

This show has:

Man… no wonder it took 12 years for a Clerks 2 to come out…

 

Playing Games: End of Semester Sega Saturn games (Legend of Galactic Heroes/Mobile Suit Gundam)


294px-LOGH_(Saturn)_disc_cover

So, Zeonic school semester is now over, and he decides to celebrate the occasion with playing the Legend of Galactic Heroes game he got at Nashicon that he now… kinda wonders if it was worth getting. So for a constant 38 minutes, you get to see Zeonic frustration over Japanese console strategy games that is still a challenge to him to this day.

Also after doing LOGH (aka, just giving up after getting his fleet destroyed), Zeonic pops in his Sega Saturn copy of Mobile Suit Gundam, which became a more enjoyable experience. If you want to see more of Zeonic streaming games online, check out our twitch channel here. Till next time!!

AoY Podcast #65 – The Psychotic Nashicon Wars (Nashicon 2015/Psychic Wars Review)

It is once again the start of Con season for the podcast, as Zeonic takes his yearly leave for this years Nashicon. Of course this episode will mark a historic landmark, as a live person enters the podcast “studio” (a.k.a., Zeonic room) to do a live recording with us. Let’s just say, we will do better next time. So, join us and our special live guest Vincent Baker from Otherworlds as we do our convention review and anime review of Psychic Wars.

(0:00 – 27:44) Convention Review – Nashicon 2015: This might be the first time ever that a con report is less than 30 minutes long, only because there wasn’t too much to gripe about. Both Zeonic and Vincent felt that the con stepped their game up in terms of getting good guest like returning champion Spike Spencer and newcomer Kyle Hebert to stop by Colombia S.C. What sweetened the pot even more was that Windjammers was available, so of course Zeonic got his fill of FLYING POWER DISK-U. We also mentioned the issues with how certain panels were ran this year, our guest Vincent discussing his upcoming game,  switching out to another mic in the studio (which… wasn’t a good idea), and Vincent discussing Triad Anime Con as being a featured guest there.

(27:44 – 43:51) Interview – Vincent Baker: So this interview was conducted behind the registration booth at the con since Zeonic saw it as the least chaotic area in the convention to talk to Vincent. Vincent was able to sit down and answer some questions and go into details about the Otherworlds game, which the Kickstarter to that will be updated on this post when it gets released on May 1st. So if your interested in the game, please give him all your money (or what you realistically want to give).

UPDATE! (May 2nd): Here is the link for the Otherworlds Kickstarter, so if you want to contribute, just click here to go to the Kickstarter page!!

(43:51 – 46:04) Podcast Promo’s: Our last promo was from February, so it’s high time we do another one. Alpha Counter has been keeping current with their once a week schedule for shows, which this latest episode is about upcoming films this summer. Anime World Order recently put out an episode reviewing The Anime Encyclopedia 3rd Edition, which even our latest promo aired on their episode, so thank you AWO gang! In other big news, the Daily Anime Podcast has released some more episodes, with Parasyte The Maximum and more Legend of Galactic Heroes talk.

(46:04 – 1:16:53) Review: Psychic Wars OVA: This was an anime that Jonn mentioned in our Crystal Triangle episode, which prompted Zeonic to watch it at 1 a.m. the night before. Regardless of this anime’s flaws, it is able to tackle one issue in question that is a worldwide cause of concern, and that is how to properly cure cancer. Of course this gets us off topic to talk about how to play the Shemue games, closing remarks on Chris(tine) Chan status update, proper tooth care, and briefly mentioning Chris Chan to Vincent, which he doesn’t need to honestly know. All this and more in this weeks episode.

Music Selection:

OP – It’s bout time we jam up this con once more…

OP2 – Time to dawn on our Jesus powers to punch cancer…

ED – After seeing this anime, we are now true veterans of The Psychic Wars…

This show has:

This anime…. at its purest form…

It is the day after the resurrection of the son of God for people of the Christian faith. We celebrate this time by either going to a church for the first time since Christmas, getting the day off of school or work for Good Friday, and maybe getting some bible reading thrown in for good measure. However, Zeonic and Jonn decided to keep up with tradition (starting from last year) to watch an anime with Christianity being highly misinterpreted. We look no further than the masterpiece OVA, Crystal Triangle.

(0:00 – 15:10) PreReview Discussion: This is just a way for Jonn and Zeonic to ramble on about things to empty ones mind for the Crystal Triangle holy message to be bestowed upon them. This includes Zeonic ramblings about his computer issues, while Jonn brings up the Social Justice issues about whats going down in Indiana. To be honest, it’s the hosts way of saying “Man, do we ‘really’ have to review Crystal Triangle? Ugh… let’s get this over with…”

(15:10 – 55:12) Review: Crystal Triangle OVA: It’s been a good while since we talked about older anime, so it’s high time we got back into the swing of things. Crystal Triangle seems to be “that” anime that people know about too be “that” anime. Zeonic see’s it as his 2nd worst anime of all time, while Jonn ranks it below his Pilot Candidate “low-end-yard-stick-of-crap.” It’s amazing that at one point, this anime sold on laserdisc for 120 bucks, which in today’s anime world, would anyone in their right mind spend that much for it (other than Mike Toole perhaps?). Perhaps it’s the “engrish” and “lussian” dialect in this anime that’s confused the TRUTH of God’s Message to be fully interpreted for us, which is why we couldn’t take this movie too seriously. We also mention the TRUTHful location of where the bible might be held, forums that don’t like Evangelion, Urashiman on The Anime Network, and Samurai Pizza Cats talk.

(55:12 – 1:19:39) Closing Remarks: This is the part where we look towards our “Podcast Pillars of the Holy Trinity” for spiritual guidance, where we mention the updated accounts of two of those pillars which are Chris Chan and Love_That_Goku. After knowing that Love_That_Goku feeds LARPers dirt, Jonn gives an internet account of what happened at Chris Chan recent trial, which means he’s gonna roam free for a little while longer, and how he might tie up his Gal Pals from high school. Zeonic mentions his accurate predictions off episode one of Sword Art Online 2 to be THE TRUTH, and mention about a guy who will be on a future podcast soon. All this and more in this weeks episode, see yea next time… (aka, stay tuned for the zinger at the end…)

So, Zeonic is currently having some PC issues which sort of hinders any kind of recording for the next couple of weeks. But, as a treat to fill in something at the end of March (MADNESS!!), we did a recording for Regan over at Anime 82 Podcast long ago. How long you say? Well, try the end of November 2013. As of now, Regan current release schedule these days is rather inconsistant, so we’d figure we can give you guys the raw audio for this to enjoy.

(0:00 – 2:00:20) Regan Strongbadz Anime 82 Podcast 21 Questions Series: Since Regan is one to “condense” his audio recordings to fit in a certain time frame, most of our answers have been cut in the past two releases. We’re not doing this out of (TOTAL) spite, but rather for you guys to get THE TRUTH in what we have to say about his questions. Keep in mind, the things we say and mention are from over 16 months ago, so certain titles we mention and what not that haven’t been released have been released by now (like the Space Adventure Cobra series on DVD). We of course are not the only ones to do this, since the AWO crew knew this would happen and did theirs 15 months ago just to have something out during christmas. I should also mention, we got two more recordings that were made around the same time, so those might as well get released on our show. So sit back and enjoy our responses, as there’s is plenty more where that came from.

This is also not the first time Zeonic was ever on Anime 82 either, he has been on in the past for Regan last 21 Question series, and this 8 hour MECHA MADNESS block where he reviewed SPT Layzner before we ever got too it.

Regan’s Questions:

1. What was the last fansubbed that you watched?

13. Do you feel that we live in reality starved times?

16. How do you compare earlier dubs to contemporary dubs?
