AoY Podcast #25 – A General Discussion Show


091012_the_pre_taped_call_in_show_t

Also known as: “FEEEEEEEEEEH FEH FEH FEHFEHFEHFEH!!!!”
As well as: “Dropped the call AHGAAAAAAAAIN!”

For this episode, we review… absolutely nothing. We decided to take this time and discuss a few things that were on our minds, and to also trash talk those we “kindly” disagree with.

Our main discussions are about two internet/Twitter peoples opinions on the anime industry, dubs vs subs, and programming opinions that we personally disagree with to the highest extent of the natural order. We also bring up how you should not treat delinquents who commit a crime, why Dragonball Evolution, Live Action Johnny Bravo  and Avatar movies are terrible (but i make a mention of a pretty good movie, Riddick) and a slew of Skype audio issues (all thanks to Jonn’s crappy NEW modem  Ex-crappy modem).

We do bring up how College life is going for us, we talk about Patlabor for a bit, and end things off with what we are keeping up with on Toonami. All this and more in this weeks segment.

AoY Podcast #24 – Takahashi vs. Tomino Round 2 (Space Runaway Ideon & SPT Layzner Review)


Also known as: “The Ide is powered by a zombie baby!”

I know its been a few episodes since our last slug fest discussion of Tomino and Takahashi shows, but were back for round 2 this time with the infamous Space Runaway Ideon and the better of mid 1980’s mecha shows, Blue Comet SPT Layzner.

Space Runaway Ideon was the very next project director Yoshiyuki Tomino worked on right after Mobile Suit Gundam. And like Gundam, it was also cut short in its episode count, sharing the same 39 episode number as Gundam which this lead to feature films being made off each series. The only difference here is, Tomino found a way not to continue Ideon… ever again!!

We then cut right on over to a show that both Jonn and I find really engaging by keeping up with the /m/subs releases, which is Blue Comet SPT Layzner by Ryouske Takahashi, This involves the Cold War stretching out to the mid 1990’s as both America and Soviet Russia have bases on the planet Mars, and how an alien invasion can mess things up. I also did a review of SPT Layzner for Regan Strong-“BAD”-blood’s own podcast Anime 82 a couple of years ago (if you wanna get to my review just skip right at the 5 hour mark… yea he made it that long…dunno why.) All this and probably some more in this weeks episode.
