Another year of E3 means another year of hype, rants, and the strange tangents from the hosts. So get plugged in, get angry, get excited and get lost in the world of the 2018 E3 episode!

(0:00 – 46:25) E3 2018 – Overall the hosts thought this show was rather meh when you balance out the good, the bad and the mediocrity of E3. This goes into Dustin and Jonn summing up the conferences from EA, Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo and others that caught their interest. Both hosts go into their thoughts on games that will be coming out that were either announced or showed more gamplay too them at the expo. Included in this segment is making fun of the Xbox system names, how Cyberpunk 2077 is the best announcement, game footage censorship on Disney XD, hipsters and them making theoretical avacado toast food trucks and much more.

(46:25 – 1:02:05) Video Game Closing Remarks – Here Dustin and Jonn talk about what they’ve been playing recently, with Dustin trying out Night Trap and beating it for the first time ever on the PS4, who played the mom on Secret World of Alex Mack, a real movie called Night Trap with Robert Davi and Micheal Ironside,  thoughts on the Goldeneye PS3 game, Jonn playing games on the Switch like Zelda and Sonic Forces, Hokuto no Gotoku getting an American release and more.

(1:02:05 – 1:56:00) Closing Remarks – This should come to no surprise that both hosts spend about equal if not greater time on this segment, with discussions on how Trump saved the world with North Korea, the South Carolina Primary Election coverage, American politics rant, Archer latest season sucking, and much more!!

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 02:45:12)

Comic book film season is upon us once again, where this time the host become our own lackluster triad of reviewers for Avengers: Infinity War.

(0:00 – 49:25) Opening Remarks: Since Jonn and Dustin were waiting for Daft to show up on the call, this gets into killing time with them talking about how terrible Denny’s are and the Anime Podcast Bracket and trash talking ensues, Daft then shows up to add more to the discussion of a local Japan Fest, the legacy of Randy Stair, the ultimate Fall of Channel Awesome, Jonn stupid bird and then some.

(49:25 – 1:50:50) Review – Avengers: Infinity War – At some point all three sit down and finally talk about this film, to go into detail behind Thanos reasons for doing what he did, and how this could affect future Marvel films. Like it would really matter, since this movie topped box office expectations in over a week of its premiere. This also got into general discussion of comics in general, and somehow Stan Lee life was brought up in conversation…

(1:50:50 – 02:45:12) Closing Remarks – … of course which lead to why men love women they way they do (which got into a discussion on monogamy/polygamy), Daft talks about his thoughts on Ready Player One, the Saga of Meson, Bill Cosby and much more.

Music Selection:

OP – Thanos is a thicc killa of the universe

It’s that time of year, where con season is upon us. So to kick things off as usual guests Daft and Cloud return to talk about their yearly trek to Anime Boston!

(0:00 – 51:45) The Anime Boston Chronicles: Chapter Cloud – Our resident Precure fanboy Cloud stops by and fills us in on his adventure at Anime Boston, filled with meeting Guest of Honor, buying stuff and places to eat. To find more detail about his experience go to his blog found here. This also has us chiming in on the Sailor Moon panel, places to eat in Boston, failed Adult Swim pilots about Bostonians, Leiji Matsumoto manga releases, which live action movie was worse, prices from dealers like Anime Asylum and the cel market and much more.

(51:45 – 02:44:35) The Anime Boston Chronicles: Chapter Daft – Daft joins in to go into a longer digest of the “other side” of the convention, including hotel wrasslin matches, good artists at artist ally, getting to meet Steve Blum and how he does his panels, Greg Ayres stories (including what parents thought YAOI meant in the early 2000’s), past video players like Juice Box and Game Boy Advance Video, Toonami April Fools talk, arcade games at the con, old anime trading cards, Jonn dog has a nightmare of Daft’s adventures, Sports talk with Daft and Dustin, and much more!

(02:44:35 – 03:02:37) Closing Remarks: Really nothing much was said other than the occasional Peter Fay and Love That Goku tweets, Daft trying to proposition Cloud sister into wrasslin next year, getting educated on what Easter is all about, and why the Pats let Brady literally kiss their superbowl away.

AoY Podcast #126 – Outlaws vs. Cowboys: The Bebop Stars of Space


Also known as: “The Beau Billingslea Power Hour on Toonami!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 3:05:30)

We talk about the two biggest titans in the galaxay among anime fans in the early 2000’s, where we review Outlaw Star and Cowboy Bebop!

(0:00 – 45:40) Review: Outlaw Star – This podcast episode is the historic record of the pinnacle of what was important to anime fans on Cartoon Network starting from 2001 and beyond. Outlaw Star was a big anime among the viewers of Toonami, and Dustin heard about this show for years until he finally saw the series shown on Toonami recently for the first time. Both hosts Jonn and Dustin and special guest Daft chime in to talk about the overview of the series with some spoilers thrown in. This also includes how its vital importance that Jonn dad tells Jonn in the call that the dog is eating cheese off the floor, the stupidity of Transformers cartoons, Outlaw Star merch in America, FLCL revival talks, will Hamtaro be on Toonami for Aprils Fools Night? (as of this writing, Adult Swim showed FLCL Alternative subtitled on TV, followed by Mind Game, and a bunch of the regular block airing in the same format, because I’m writing this about 1am on April Fools night – Dustin), Toonami censorship on TV and much more.

(45:40 – 1:39:00) Review: Cowboy Bebop – This episode marks the 20th anniversary since the anime first aired on TV Tokyo, and how it later showed up that late summer on the new Adult Swim block on Cartoon Network in 2001. Both hosts recant how much of an impact Bebop has had on them as anime fans all these years later, including the merch that’s out there (you can find the pdf of the Bebop Anime Guides here at my blog – Dustin). This goes into account what particular episode got Dustin involved in Bebop, our top 3 Bebop episodes, the TV edits, and a whole lot more!

(1:39:00 – 3:05:30) Closing Remarks – This is chock full of material that covers for the month of March since we last recorded, including how Love that Goku got social services on his butt, Linkara leaving TGWTG and the twitter thread full of the company drama, Meson in dire need, the fully funded Kickstarter for Gunsmith Cats, The Toys That Made Us Netflix Documentary series, Dustin con talks on Toylanta and SC Comic Con, RIP Toys R Us/southern food stores/Return of KB Toys, the Mystery of Miami Mike finally solved by The Anime Nostalgia Podcast and the stupid weeaboo drama that follows on the ANN Forums, Dustin mentions his thoughts on Pacific Rim 2, and much more!

AoY Podcast #125 – Wakandan Panther Review


 

Also known as: “I will kick the tree over right into the [sic] ground and climb it horizontally…”

 

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 2:23:25)

This time we discover the lost imaginary nation of Wakanda and hunt down the interests of a black panther in the Marvel universe with our review of Black Panther.

(0:00 – 57:00) Movies Review: Black Panther – Now that the film as of this episode has broken the one billion dollar box office amount, the highest rated movie on Rotten Tomatoes and is the center of American political social media discussion, both Dustin and Jonn just see the film as another Marvel movie. Both get into the politicized rhetoric of online reviewers who praise this movie, Dustin discusses Death Wish and Mazinger Z Infinity as being far better films than Black Panther, and also discuss what we liked and didn’t like about the film.

(57:00 – 2:23:25) Closing Remarks – It’s once again time for opinions about all the events that has happened in the past month since our last episode, which leaded to discussions about gun control, should teachers be armed, Alex Jones v. CNN v. Youtube, the GRAND RETURN of Love That Goku, Dustin attends the Atlanta SciFi Expo (which as of this post, the website is 404, so that should tell you something) in a ghetto mall, Jonn mentions the Black Lightning show, Toonami boob censorship, latest Chris Chan documentary and much more.
