AoY Podcast #21 – Connecticon 2013 & Beware the Batman Talkback


Also known as: “CO-CO-CO-CO-CON PAMPLET!”

For this week, our very own VeemonJosh talks about about his experience at this years Connecticon. He goes on to spin his tales of checking out the Dr. Who panels, him cosplaying as Jotaro from Kamen Rider, meeting Jon St. John, and more. Then we move right along with the review of Beware the Batman with our “internet correspondent” DaftPunkFan.

And like the usual fare, there are the typical audio issues (mostly in the beginning… and whenever Daft talked), going off ramblings on animated series in general where we mention the current season of Venture Bros, general comics talk (mostly on the DC/Batman universe), picking on people who host online radio stations, my brief thoughts on the George Zimmerman case, and much much more.

I also wanted to point out, we have a Donate page on the right hand side of the website. If you wish to send something our way to help the podcast out, then you are more then welcome too. If you are curious what we plan on doing with the money you send us, I have that all listed under the donate page. Even if you don’t feel obligated to donate at this time, or your that broke, still continue to listen to us free of charge. That is one thing that will never change, and you can count on that!

AoY Podcast #20 – Takahashi vs. Tomino Round 1 (Heavy Metal L-Gaim & Blue Gender Review)


vlcsnap-2013-06-19-12h12m26s6

Also known as: ” Hey Kayro, you hair makes the best beanbag!”
or also: “And there’s sum-sum-sum-ro-ro-robot God…”

We are finally doing another anime marathon of sorts, where for once a month, for the next couple of months (or longer maybe), we will talk about some series/shows from some of the two biggest anime directors out there, Yoshiyuki Tomino vs. Ryouske Takahashi.

We start off with our discussion of Heavy Metal L-Gaim by Tomino, where we compare and contrast between the OVA’s and TV series. We then go right into a Takahashi show from not that long ago called Blue Gender. Some of the discussions include how people can pilot a robot from a KORG machine, total 80’s fashion, subtitle issues, anime wraslin, annoying characters, how something can be almost like Starship Troopers, censorship in a TV series and much more. We also go off topic on things like recent anime start up companies, taking an early look at Funimation, DBZ side talk and other Takahashi shows we will cover down the road. All this and more in this weeks episode.

Side Note: I know I said the words “Takahashi vs. Tomino Month” in the intro, but this is gonna go on longer than that, and I ment to say segment. But, if you know our track record, you probably won’t hold that against us, which is cool. I should just edit it out, but OH WELL!
