AoY Podcast #31 – JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Arc 1 Review


Also known as: “I’m just gonna call her Arena, like Sports Arena.”
Or also: “I live my life, one quarter mile at a time…”

The time as finally come, where Zeonic decides to sit down and watch JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. After over a year of constant mentioning from his co-hosts, he decides to take the plunge into a manga/anime series filled with 60’s to 80’s prog-rock music band character names, over the top action, and the ability to ripple. All I can say is, this is pretty good stuff if you haven’t seen it yet.

Of course, we bring up other slightly-on-to-totally-off topic JoJo things such as The Fast and the Furious movies, music references in the JoJo’s series, how the JoJo manga did in the states, angry religious parties, dissing on Toon Radio, recent South Park episode talk, the amount of podcast we have recorded in our 2 and a half year podcasting lifespan, and much more. I did include a Christmas Bonus at the end of this episode, so its an extra treat to the ears.

OP – Id say this intro is off to a good start….

Playing Games: Xbox Saturday


I haven’t posted one of these things in almost a year since we started, but I’d figure its high time we did one again. My goal was to make this something my co-host and I can do as Lets Plays, but our schedules are kinda different and so is our tastes in games it seems.

This time I’m gonna post up Xbox games that I picked up and decided to try them out for a short period of time, or till I got fustrated enough at the game and i’m like “well FORGET THIS!!” This is a pre-Christmas gift for you guys kinda, but there will be something out on Christmas for you guys, so stay tuned.

Part 1 – I was trying out my Murakumo game that this counts as the second time playing it, and it would have been fine if my stream wasn’t disconnected randomly. (I should also mention I have a mic right next to the speaker output because the audio settings on my Dazzle stream video component device wont recognize audio in the FLash Media Live Encoder program for some reason and that was the only ghetto way I could jerry rig sound for the stream.)

Part 2 – Which leads to having a second part where I continue my gameplay of Murakumo, thought one enemy was stupid, stopped playing and put in a King of Fighters NeoWave game, till I fought Geese and was like all “MAN FORGET THIS GAME!” because using an Xbox controller to play a game like that is stupid because the D-pads on Xbox controllers are always terrible to use for fighting games period. Then the rest of the stream is the Regular Show Christmas Special, because it so happened to be on TV and I was like “eh, why not?”

Here is my brief game play of SVC Chaos before the stream decided to cut out on its own, then I spent the rest of my day helping my parents organize the garage.


AoY Podcast #30 – LEFTOVER PODCAST TAKE 2 (Dark Solder D n’ Pacific Rim Review)


Also known as: “It’s Always Sunny in Pacific Rim”
or: “Nah, I need you to do ANIME NOW!!!!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:14:11)

So we got some leftovers I have been saving for quite a while now, and it’s time I shared the stench with you guys. But sometimes, old things don’t smell so bad, or not all of it at least. We got two reviews way past their expiration date, Dark Solder D and Pacific Rim (or what I wanna call “PacRim”!!)

My Dark Solder D review was originally recorded back in December 2012 (I believe), and was submitted for the last part of Regan’s Anime 82 Mecha Madness podcast to see if he would take this live action mecha atrocity to heart. Well, he gave a brief “NO MAN, NOT GONNA HAPPEN!” on that episode, so the recording (and this post i’m writing on) just sat in the vault till it was needed. But now, that time has come.

If I told you that Dark Soldier D wasn’t offensive to the senses in some way, I would commit one of the worst crimes against humanity. With shooting giant chickens in the ass with an M60 machine gun, brains floating in jars that have speech devices, mad Russians, hooking up with a girl that steals your crap, limbs a flying and much more, you can bet your in for the 3 episode ride of your life.

We then move on to the greatest anime-to-live-action adaptation that wasn’t off an anime, which makes PacRim the best anime of 2013! Both Daft and I were on this recording back when the movie came out in theaters as we each give our own personal views on the movie (and before we got 1 star rating that I found out later that came from Daft on iTunes for some dumbass hipster reason.) Pacific Rim will release your inner child for an hour and a half, with a sense that you have a plastic robot in your hand as you watch the coolest fights break out on the big screen. With the movie out on DVD/BluRay, you should have already bought the thing by now, or you will for Christmas. Either way, get it!

This also gets us to talk about Comic book movie talk, me discussing the Wolverine movie (SPOILERS), toy talk, anime to live action talk, how PacRim is not Evangelion, “Bay”Formers talk, the marketing reasons behind 3D movies now, and much more.

Music Selection:

OP – My feelings to express Dark Solder D

EyeCatch – Best anime opening of 2013

ED – What played in my head when I saw Charlie Day on the big screen

Well, this seems to appeal to other people tastes than mine…
