AoY Podcast #117 – Super Gals Review


Also known as: “Light Lucario = Ran Kotobuki”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:33:12)

After having this DVD set collect dust in our pile-O-shame’s for over a year, Jonn and Dustin finally get around to talking about Super Gals.

(0:00 – 45:00) A Super Shibuya Anime Culture Review: Super Gals – If you want to test the standards of any 2000’s anime comedy series can still hold up in today’s anime fandom, just leave it up to podcast reviewers to see how far they can stand a show before calling it quits. This is more of a review of the first two episodes of Super Gals than it is a whole series of Super Gals. Let’s not kid ourselves, these two episodes gave both hosts everything they needed to know about this anime. Super Gals is a parody of 1990’s Japanese fashion culture that lies somewhere between Kogal girls, Ganguro girls and fighting for justice because you’re daddy is a police chief. This also gets into talking about how Jonn has too much Hamtaro on his hard drive, defending Gundam 0083, if Super Gals can be used for CIA torture on terrorism, music history of Para Para, past ADV properties and much more.

(45:00 – 1:33:12) Closing Remarks: This is the hosts talking about the latest Chris Chan stuff and his supposed girlfriend/being on the NEWS AGAIN, Trump vs. NFL vs. First Amendment rights, how Toys R Us filed Chapter 11 (better article on that found from the angriest otaku out there), old and terrible podcasts, Cowboy Bebop vs. Outlaw Star, shootings in Tennessee, and Dustin trying to chime in while having the hiccups. Also this and more in this episode!

 

Music Selection:

OP – Shibuya ROLL CALL!!!

ED – And well just Para dance our way out of this review…

AoY Podcast #116 – A Gundam RightStuf Special (Gundam Thunderbolt / Belladonna of Sadness Review)



Also known as: “Is George Carlton your new daddy?”

Download Episode HERE! (2:00:37)

Holy Crap, two podcast episodes a week apart! How can that be? Well it is, and Dustin and Jonn are able to give you another RightStuf corporate sponsored Gundam podcast. Not only do we review what goodies we got in the mail from RighStuf, but also review Gundam Thunderbolt and Belladonna of Sadness.

(0:00 – 1:05:00) RightStuf GundamCast Review: Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt – It’s been months, but were here to deliver more Gundam to you guys. This time Jonn and Dustin review the web short series Gundam Thunderbolt, which for a one year war Gundam short, its probably the darkest that One Year War Gundam has done so far. Both hosts discuss the ONA, but also mention gross number statistics of estimated losses in the One Year War, trying to compare those numbers with losses in World War II, AU vs UC content, the different kinds of Jazz that exist, upcoming Gundam Bluray content and reviews of content currently out and much more.

(1:05:00 – 1:26:40) Your Grandpa’s Hidden Anime Porn Review: Belladonna of Sadness – Belladonna is the oldest anime we’ve reviewed so far on this site, and by far the most visually interesting since Angel’s Egg. Despite being an art house smut style movie produced by Osamu Tezuka, it has a decent story to go with it which is loosely based off this book. But none of that matters when you got psychedelic imagery of phallic animation being shown on screen (links NSFW just FYI). This also gets Jonn and Dustin talking about the other works by director Eiichi Yamamoto, the sexual revolution in the 1960’s, and what kind of people (other than the hosts) that would find out about this anime at 2 a.m. on a Saturday night on TCM.

(1:26:40 – 2:00:37) Closing Remarks: Nothing too much to say, other than Chris Chan has a new GF, which a new saga will unfold from that. Dustin has joined up with a local Gundam group, Ted Cruz leaked porn scandal, Jonn trolls the podcast with trains and more.

Music Selection:
OP1 – War gets harder towards the end…

OP2 – BRELLADONNAAHHH…

ED – How Jonn successfully trolled the podcast…

This show has:

Dustin’s new office chair, for podcasting reasons of course.

 

Well see how long this saga last for…

AoY Podcast #115 – General Discussion Part II: The Hurricane Cast


Also known as: “…AND THAT COMBINATION WITH SEXISM IS WHY I NEEDED TO WRITE THIS POST!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 02:31:24)

So, its been 4 years since we titled our last episode as a “General Discussion” episode, so we figured it’s time for a sequel episode, longer and (un)better than ever! Of course, this is coming out after Hurricane Henry and during Irma, so it’s pretty fitting to release this episode in this manner. This time we are joined by guests Josh and Daft to talk about bad animated/live action movies like Batman and Harley Quinn and Death Note.

(0:00 – 1:19:30) Something of a Review: Batman and Harley Quinn / Death Note – We figured we can just bundle this into one segment with everyone crapping on the live action Americanized Death Note and Batman and Harley Quinn. This comes with discussing what “really” constitutes as rape, how Bruce Timm needs to come clean and make animated Batman porno films, the changes made in Death Note, talking about the Defenders show, Jonn moving back to Poseidon’s Revenge on Texas, and much more.

(1:19:30 – 02:31:24) Closing Remarks – Here the hosts dive right into Dustin banning from Toonzone after over 11 years of (dis)service, the symposium of a pure autistic post on Toonzone, Toonami speculations of upcoming shows in the future, anime on Kickstarter, Gundam dubbing talk and a bunch other nonsense.

Music Selection:

OP – Were gonna “Pod” you like a Hurricane…

ED – Did we mention this came out during a Hurricane…

This show has:

How to get kicked from Toonzone, the Zeonic Freak way!

And that’s the end of that chapter…

AoY Podcast #114 – Robotech: The Movie (w/ Grant the Thief)


Also known as: “LOTS OF GUNS, LOTS OF SHOOTING, LOTS OF ROBOTS, NOW THAT’S A CANNON MOVIE!”
and also: “This is Megazone 23 Rebuild… (You Cannot Macek)”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 02:21:55)

After a long time coming (that no one asked for), the podcast covers one of the worst greatest blunders of Robotech history; Robotech: The Movie: The Untold Story. This time the podcast is greeted by Robotech fan Grant The Thief.

(0:00 – 1:23:40) The Untold Review: Robotech: The Movie (ie, Talk-About-Robotech-Than-This-Crappy-Film-For-Over-An-Hour-And-Twenty-Minutes) – No the headline isn’t lying to you guys, Dustin, Jonn and Grant really did talk about other Robotech stuff than this film. Think about it, if the hosts really “did” talk about Robotech: The Movie, this podcast would have been really short, and who wants that? Before ever going into trying to summarize the wikipedia article of this film, the hosts just talked Robotech from property rights, fandom and silly crossovers throughout Robotech lifetime. This also gets into discussion on Harmony Gold properties (like that Captain Harlock dub), who Carl Macek really is, how people forgot how to draw Robotech officially, how anime being shown on television has changed for the better and much more.

(1:23:40 – 02:21:55) Closing Remarks – Dustin and Jonn bring in the verdict for the Rise and Crash of KidsClickTV, Grant brings in how great Lupin the 3rd is, Dustin being a panelist at Electric City Comic Con, Cartoon Network shows, crazy Robotech podcasters, and how breaking up with your fiancee is hard to do. All this and more in this weeks episode.

Music Selection:

OP – Why can’t I be saaaaaaaved, from Harmony Gold!

ED – The future is looking grim for Robotech, oh wait, that’s nothing new…

This show has:

I hope the rest of this gets on TV for real…

AoY Podcast Bonus – Bad Gundam Fanfilms (by Dustin)


Also known as: “…The ghost of Robert Osborne possessing your tape…”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 59:19)

This is just a quick bonus to put out there till the next episode comes out. Against the judgement of Dustin and Jonn, both decided to do a commentary track to Dustin crappy Gundam Fan Films he made in high school between 2001/2002.

It’s pretty simple to set up, just click on the links below to pull up the movies, and play the podcast episode along with the video for the commentary track. Of course you could just watch the uploaded commentary tracks that are already on our Youtube channel to enjoy, because why put in the extra work. The audio of the commentary track is out there as a podcast episode in case no one wants to spend one second of their lives looking at the crap Dustin made 15 odd years ago, and he wouldn’t blame them.

Just like the podcast, this commentary track goes off topic on things like what was said at the SDCC 2017, comparing quality to Gatomatt videos, a brief history of Gundam in America, Home Movies, Dustin house in Apex, North Carolina, and much more.

Music Selection:

ED – BAM, OH MY GOSH… is this recording?

This show has:

First Commentary Video

Second Commentary Video

Much better Fan Films than what Dustin made…

The ghost of Robert Osborne lives on through Dustin’s tape…

The right title card with the wrong spelling of words…
