Every year in California, the Electronic Entertainment Expo becomes that milestone that video game fans look forward too to indicate that summer finally begins. This year was the year that dreams did come true to many fans across the globe, even dreams that us podcast hosts have been waiting for many years.

We really don’t need a time code for this episode, since we stay true to staying on topic on what happened at E3 this year. June 16th, 2015 will mark a milestone date for both Jonn and Zeonic as the day Shenmue 3 was announced that launched a hugely successful Kickstarter that even crashed Kickstarter themselves. This also gets us into talking about dreams coming true for Kingdom Hearts 3, the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, The Last Guardian, and much more. If you can’t tell already, (but let’s break it down for you again), that this podcast totally called out the idea of Shenmue coming to Kickstarter when we were talking with Lisle Wilkerson last year, so we are total trend setters of the gaming industry without anyone really knowing it.

This also gets us into discussing what happened during the other conferences (and how the HoloLens is just Strange Days tech come to life), the breakdown of the Nintendo World Championship 2015, Conkers Bad Fur Day talk, latest with Chris Chan and much more. Also, Josh gives his big plug for his personal blog at Cartoon Historian, where he spends a lot of time researching and writing about early American television animation that is largely forgotten about, and why you should care. He is basically becoming the next generation of Fred Patton without even knowing it.

Music Selection:

OP – When Shenmue comes your way, you dream on!!!

ED – These Shenmue dreams go on as I close my eyes…

This show has:

That was how I felt in that moment too…

So for anyone wanting to know what this game is about, let these drunken Irish developers tell you all about it…

Big question, does this game still hold up almost 2 decades later?

You see, proof that HoloLens is made for Waifu Pronz

AoY Podcast #67: I Love The 80’s Edition (Kung Fury & Mad Max: Fury Road Review)

Within a months time, both the big screen and the small tablet screens have been hit with a wave of 80’s style films. If you can’t tell from the title, there is no anime in this episode, but damn, these titles might as well be. We test drive our Testarossa flux capacitor once more and decide to hit up 1985 with Kung Fury and Mad Max: Fury Road.

(0:00 – 29:48) Live-Action OVA Review – Kung Fury: This was a film that wanted to replicate the mindset, feel, and era of 1985 Miami, Florida. Maybe it didn’t hit all the right keytar notes, but it has heart for sure. Kung Fury feels more like a fun little OVA than a film, but it does have many things going for it from tracking issues, Nazi arcade robots, and even laser raptors. This segment also gets Zeonic and Jonn talking about Jurassic Park/World talk, people’s opinions over Twitch on this film and much more.

(29:48 – 32:31) Podcast Promo’s: Since we reference both Alpha Counter and Mating Habits of the Modern Geek in our next review, they both had something to say about the new Mad Max film. Also, Jeff from Daily Anime Podcast is back to do more episode summaries of Legend of Galactic Heroes talk, and there is even a twitter group watch about it that started up recently, so give it a listen.

(32:31 – 1:30:15) Movie Review – Mad Max: Fury Road: It’s amazing to believe that the last Mad Max film is 30 years old at this point, and even with all three of those movies combined, they can still hold up today. Fury Road is the absolute equation of what Mad Max is and should be about, and if it took 30 years to get to this point, it was worth the wait. This film also gets the anti-SJW gears turning in Jonn and Zeonic when they mention the differing opinions of online people, American social issues, Aqua Teen Hunger Force talk, discuss the Mad Max films in more depth, the change of Bruce Jenner and Chris Chan feminism rantings. All this and a whole lot more in this week episode.

Music Selection:

OP1 – Get ready to enter 1985… Kung Fury STYLE!!!

ED1 – It takes a True Survivor to make it in our next review…

OP2 – Guitar Green Energy is the way to go in the Mad Max future…

ED2 – Were lucky to be one of the living…

This show has:


Don’t be hassling the Hoff now…


Yep, this was pretty much that scene in Mad Max…


Adios, Hunger Force of Aqua Teens…


Hitler must have used this trick in Miami (at 1:52)…

Here we continue more of our discussion of the spring anime season, where Zeonic is absent from this recording as he’s gradually recovering from his crazy weekend at Animazement. However Jonn, Josh and Daft take the reigns to discuss more about not only the anime in the spring, but also from previous anime seasons still going on.

(0:00 – 35:15) Series from previous Anime Seasons Review: The gang talks about shows from both the Fall and Winter anime seasons, both new and continuing with Assassination Classroom, Comical Psychosomatic Medicine, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, I Can’t Understand What My Husband Is Saying, The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-Chan, Nisekoi, and My Teen Romance Comedy Snafu Too. They also discuss sites dedicated to finding everything wrong with professional subtitles, opinions on Haruhi Suzumiya, and much more.

(35:15 – 1:43:02) Spring Anime 2015 List Review: Here is where we review every other anime but Rinne, because that was already covered in our last episode. So for the full list we have Arslan Senki (The Heroic Legend of Arslan TV), Ultimate Otaku Teacher, Is It Wrong To Pick Up Girls In a Dungeon?, Gunslinger Stratos: The Animation, Sound Euphonium, Blood Blockade Battlefront, Ninja Slayer: The Animation, My Love Story!!, Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign, Plastic Memories, Punch Line, Food Wars and Show by Rock!! This also gets the gang into discussion the latest on Chris Chan court dates and how he went to a club, people on Twitter, how Charlie Hebdo was an inside job, general conspiracy theory talk, and much more.

(1:43:02 – 1:59:16) Podcast Zinger: This was pre-review stuff that happened before anyone really started to review anything. This involved discussing Penguins Memory and a past reviewers obsession over it, talking about stuff Josh hasn’t seen, how Daft is too lazy to edit podcasts and doesn’t understand how they work, and much more. (aka, Daft, it does NOT take an hour for me to edit any episode I ever do – Zeonic)

OP – Let’s assassinate this Spring Anime…

ED – And were rocking out to this Spring Anime…

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…

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!!
