With 2021 bringing back larger conventions again, Dustin and Jonn talk about their experiences with Anime Weekend Atlanta and Phoenix Toy Con.

(0:00 – 1:08:28) Convention Reports 2021: Jonn hits the ground running with what he did at Phoenix Toy Con the same time Dustin was at Anime Weekend Atlanta. While Jonn was getting great stuff like Bloodstained on the Nintendo Switch and other great comic goodies, Dustin was getting his moment in the spotlight with a grand AMV win at the VAT Exposition contest along with an award at Youmacon AMV Contest all at the same time. Both get into topics about Marvel films, Covid guidelines between the two conventions, things we bought and #LetsGoBrandon. Dustin goes extensively on how his Initial D and B.A.D. panels went, navigating the horrendous Atlanta 285 construction/World Series traffic, meeting industry peeps like Carl Horn, picking up import games of such anime series at random, sleeping at different places with different peoples cats, reading off crappy Evangelion poetry, playing Initial D Zero in the arcade, seeing Tiffany Grant again, Anitubers who rant against AWA because of questionable panels, and much more!

(1:08:28 – 1:59:39) Closing Remarks (i.e. more Chris “Jebuzz Sanix blu hart” Chan prison letters) – This is really self explanatory, this is how we spent our time Reading. These. Letters. Anything with other politics was very brief.

For our Halloween special, the AoY crew decides to give a proper send off to the late Takao Saito by reviewing the first adaptation of Golgo 13 to film back in 1973.

(0:00 – 46:35) Ken Takakura Shoots and Scores! Golgo 13 Review: We figured the best way to honor the late Saito is to review the earliest Golgo 13 manga to film adaptation back in 1973. This would be Jonn first time seeing this film, and Dustin’s second time. Dustin has even written an article online about this film during his days in college, which can be found here. It’s has also been nearly a decade and two podcast series ago since Dustin and Jonn talked about a Golgo 13 film in a podcast episode, so its good to dust off the old M-16 once again. This also contains the psyche of Golgo 13, firearms talk, Crying Freeman, James Bond and much more!

For those headed to Anime Weekend Atlanta 2021, Dustin will be hosting The Wide World of Initial D: A Comprehensive History and That B.A.D Panel (Bad Anime Dubbing) on Saturday, October 30th back-to-back from 3:15 to 5:30pm. We hope to see you there!

(46:35 – 2:19:54) The cesspool that is always Closing Remarks: This includes Richard Epcar early acting roles on Street Hawk, anime on the Sci Fi Channel, the cheezyness of Descendants of Darkness, TV ratings, RIP shoutout to Norm MacDonald, the current status of the COVID vaccine, Chris Chan is the second coming of Jesus, Batman ’66 discussion, The Troubles and European politics, Yaz adapting Cucuruz Doan Island to a film, anime we’ve been watching like High Speed Galvion and much more!

OP – NO ONE CAN MAKE THAT SHOT!

(56:35 – 1:41:34) Closing Remarks – Politics and this podcast go together like Chinese food and chocolate pudding, lets face it!

AoY Podcast #158 – Berserk Review Part II


This show has: “I think its just Catholic, not Catholicistic.”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:55:17)

We’re a little bit late than we wanted, but here we are in our final installment of our Berserk coverage of the 2016 and 2017 series. Oh yea, E3 was this year, and it sucked, and we talk about that too.

(0:00 – 34:15) E3 2021 Review – Nothing really much to say, because nothing really happened. A new Halo, some talk from a company about diversity in the gaming industry, you know the hard hitting stuff every gamer really cares about, right? In terms of games the company that showed up was Limited Run Games, which Dustin talks why everyone should get everything Zombies Ate My Neighbors from them. Its a great game BUY IT!!! This also talks about Dustin still working on the old Initial D cabs, how LRG has the rights to Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties, and much more!

(34:15 – 1:55:17) Review: Berserk 2016/2017 – This finalizes what has been animated so far from Miura series, and Jonn and Dustin are there to share their thoughts on the series. This gets into Japanese censorship for nudity, bad CGI shows and Max Steel, the best review of Species 2, manga talk, the great failings of Tokyopop, internet drama and much more.

Just a heads up, make sure to check out Trigun ReAnimate, a collaborative project to reanimate the Trigun intro.

 

Music:

OP – Best opening to an anime should be a song from Clerks…

ED – Here’s a band that writes music about Berserk…

Yea for real, I had the same reaction as well…

Totally a product of its time…

AoY Podcast #157 – Berserk Review Part I


Also known as: “See I was right! I was absolutely right, and I just said the wrong name!”
and also: “I put JP Morgan in Defense Mode!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:20:22)

Probably our first real anime review since last year, but we honor the late Kentaro Miura by reviewing the 1997 Berserk anime and The Golden Arc Films.

This entire episode (or the most we can do to stay focused on talking about our topic) is dedicated to Dustin and Jonn views on the Berserk anime. There’s hardly anything for a closing remarks segment since we felt like we’ve overdone that in our last episode. This anime is personal to Dustin because he started to watch the anime the month Miura passed, let alone THE SAME DAY that no one knew about till it was made official 2 weeks later! This gets us to discuss other note while things like the Arthur PBS cartoon, our personal history in how we knew/got into Berserk, thoughts on animation issues, books vs. the film adaptations, check out a better Berserk podcast than we could ever hope to achieve, popular shonen titles, Record of Lodoss War and other fantasy anime talk, Dustin leaving Geeks under Grace with his official last article on the Initial D arcade scene, and much more!

We’ll be back hopefully in our next installment to talk about the 2016 and 2017 series.

Music Selection:

OP – RIP Kentarou Miura

ED – Possible best AMV tribute?
