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!)

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).

AoY Podcast #48 – SpringCon Report Pt 1 (NashiCon 2014/Video Game Discussion)


Also known as: “She had me at Cyber City Oedo…”

Ok, so here’s the deal guys: This con was back in April of this year, so almost 4 months ago, and Zeonic is NOW getting this report out towards the end of the summer. I am sure there was ample time to for him to put something out between now and then, but he didn’t, and he really doesn’t care. Zeonic can’t blame this one on procrastination (well, maybe a little bit) because hey, if you check on what came out between now and April, we have had a full plate on talking about a variety of things that has happened. So without further ado, here is what Zeonic thought about Nashicon. (WARNING: THE AUDIO SUCKS IN THIS!)

(0:00 – 35:00) The beginnings of a Convention Report: NashiCon: Being how this is Zeonic 3rd year to attend NashiCon, it is an improvement from last years venue he must say. With a kicking game room done by the people who do the game rooms for Animazement, actual guest like Robert Axelrod and Lisle Wilkerson to attend this year and panels of interest to go too, this has gone up in quality to his con standards (I guess I can’t talk to much there.) This also gets Zeonic to talk about an “obscure” anime panel that he believed had anything to do with obscure anime, getting to know artist alley girls by their mention of Kawajiri anime to start a conversation with, talking about the game room, discussion of the LejiVerse, which diverts to…

(35:00 – 55:40) AN INCOHERENT SEGUE TO GENERAL VIDEO GAME TALK:  Yep, we spend this time talking about video games because we can. This went to talking about game systems, how Zeonic spent money on a Wii that is just and emulation device now, android games that lets you see the world, some youtube troll personality, Sonic talk, Shenmue discussion and probably some more. But when Zeonic went to mention Lisle Wilkerson…

(55:40 – 1:18:37) The failed attempt to finish a Convention Report: NashiCon: Both Zeonic and Jonn were able to get it together and complete the task before them, which is just more discussion of talking about people at the con and con life I guess you can say. This did talk about people with signs at the con, what Zeonic got at the con (which was talk of Cosmo Police Justy in America. Here is a link to ebay on what people want for the Justy VIZ print these days), 90’s Nickelodeon show talk, and more stuff I cannot really remember, which there was more to mention.

Links to stuff I mentioned in this episode (if you couldn’t make it out):

ANN article on the Carolina Manga Library
My written article on Cosmo Police Justy I did for the AAA Podcast almost 3 years ago as of this post

Music Selection:

OP – Yea, were at this again…

ED – The song for the modern “Mor-ans”

This show has:


If you look at the description, i’ll let you guys be the judge of what is considered “obscure.” (This video may not play in your “country” due to youtube restrictions or whatever)

Does anyone read my sign?

I surely can’t imagine this car to be a distraction on the road, or can it?
