If there is one thing that anime fans would ever agree upon as a community, it’s that every person who likes anime wants to go to Japan once in their lives. It is a second desire that tags along with liking Japanese cartoons, and fans will do just about anything to see the land of the rising sun when given that golden opportunity to go. That moment was able to finally come to Zeonic, when he went on a university trip to Kanazawa, Japan to finally accomplish that life goal of being an anime fan for 15+ years.

(0:00 – 1:26:03) –  Zeonic tells his journey over the pacific to the land of the rising sun, which is full of airline stupidity, stopping in Jonn’s backyard, getting In n Out of LAX layovers, and people who steal his pillow somewhere over the pacific. Of course upon arriving in the land of otaku milk and honey, he mentions how he does English Q&A on a high school play, what his experience was like teaching English to the Japanese, talking about anime translation differences between east and west with other people, and getting on the Japanese evening news.

Promo Break (1:26:03 – 1:28:15) – Since this is a pretty long episode, I got 3 podcast promos for you to listen too. I decided to get things off with the anime podcasting champions of the Anime World Order podcast, followed by the only great anime promo I have ever heard of from The Daily Anime Podcast, and then giving a shout out to our bro’s over at Alpha Counter. In other words, these guys are better than us even on our best days, so check em out.

(1:28:15 – 2:22:52) – After the promo break, Zeonic tells his personal experience with getting involved in the ultimate bonding experience with the Japanese society; by going to a local bathhouse. This also leads too seeing a typical bingo night, talking about the sights and shops around Kanazawa, the city local festival, and even more flight issues coming back home. We also happen to divert off the podcast flight plan to mention that Violence Jack is licensed by Discotek Media, what North Korea podcasts would be like, which leads to a nose dive into talking about terrible Korean anime (and the poor suckers who review it.) All this and a whole lot more to be stored in your overhead podcast compartment.

OP – You could say I made a big difference when I was in Japan…

ED – I hope to live in a place like Tokyo one day…

That’s how you do it in the big K-Zawa son…

Playing Games: Eh, Windjammers why not…


So yea, I think I can officially say we are done with Justin.tv since all my videos going back 4 or so years ago are now long gone. I streamed like an hours worth of stuff on that site with my import copy of Macross VFX for the PSX and some Windjammers/Shock Troopers play; which has all seemed to have disappeared in time. So after a bit of fiddling with getting introduced to Twitch.tv, I now have something to show you guys, and that’s just more Windjammers game play. I should note, that I am totally neglecting my duties as the podcast editor by NOT working on getting a new episode out, unless I feel like doing that later tonight or tomorrow. I guess well see about that. But, here is some video games for the time being, enjoy.

AoY Podcast #44 – E3 2014 Talkback

Even though this is an “anime” podcast, we do care about what is coming out in the video game world at this years E3 event. What you should also know about this event is that Zeonic did not care one bit about this years E3, because when you are stuck at an airport in Chicago for a day coming back from an overseas trip; having an event about stuff that your gonna see in storesin a few months should be the least of one persons worries. But Josh, Jonn and our guest known as “Tee Why” are able to step in and fill in what Zeonic missed out in this years E3 because of  his jetlaggin layover from Japan. If anything, Zeonic is focused on the World Cup right now, because sports and stuff.

We pretty much stay on topic as Zeonic gets the post “inside” scoop of titles that he 90 precent doesn’t give a crap about. The gang talks about mostly what happened at the Nintendo panel/announcements, who won overall at the expo,  and talking about games and technology in general. We also deviate from our discussion  when it comes to the dangers of social media, picking fights with feminist on Twitter (actually no, this explains everything to you guys), thanking people who donated money to our cause (looking at you Trevor MCD. My bad on not mentioning your name in this episode, but we will give a shout out to you in the next episode for sure!), never getting around to talking about Zeonic trip to Japan, and all around talking about other things semi related.

Music Selection:

OP – I’ll let E3 drop some mad beats for me…

ED – This is what I expect the new Nintendo game to totally have…

This show has:

Looks cool… maybe???

AoY Podcast #43 – Gundam Month The Fourth: Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Ep 7: “Over the Rainbow” Review


Also known as: “That must be the worst kind of hell ever to chase after Lalah forever…”

Well, this is going to conclude our Gundam Month segment for quite a while, until there is new Gundam to come out to talk about. After over three years of podcast’s between different names and people, we are here to finally finish out our Gundam Month segments; as we dive into the newtype rainbow of Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Episode 7: Over the Rainbow.

Gundam Unicorn 7 was able to answer some questions to a lot of Gundam fans as to “kinda” tell what happens after Char’s Counterattack, as we discuss the events and story behind this final OVA spanning over 4 years now. You can expect to find giant mobile armors with TONS AND TONS OF GUNS EVERYWHERE, newtype acid trips, newtype ghosts, colony lasers, and how newtypes were destined to have political positions. We were able to have Andy from the Daily Anime Podcast join us to talk about this OVA, which got us to talk about the new Godzilla movie in the beginning of this recording, angry autistic’s on tumblr, autistic’s against Funimation getting Gundam, catching Andy up on our favorite LolCow, us bro’s having bro crushes on Suichi Ikeda, (I ment to say George Washington not Thomas Jefferson for those history people out there, my bad), how smoking is an issue in Universal Century (the quote is found somewhere on this page but I’ll post the quote after this paragraph), bad writers and more general Gundam talk plus more than that.

Here is the quote Jonn used in his closing remarks: “The poison called tobacco, which was once almost extinct in the old ages, still lingered in the days of Universal Century 0096. This was the result of tobacco quality improving as a result of the space age, like the reduction of tar to reduce the negative effects on the human body and the intricate machines, and the development of chemicals that combust at low temperatures in tobacco, but most people felt that the biggest reason for the revival of tobacco was the One Year War.”

Music Selection:

OP – We go over the rainbow and beyond with this Gundam OVA

ED – You can try and connect the rainbows all day, but you still might end up with nothing
