This review was a long time coming, even before Jonn and Zeonic started this podcast. This is also the first movie review of the year, which does tie into an anime by the same name, so were not that off our beat guys!! Of course the gang can’t do this film review alone, and had to reach out to Sean Ryan from the Alpha Counter podcast to form our own beatbox gang as we journeyed our way through the L.A. ghetto with the 1991 film, The Guyver.

(0:00 – 52:25) Animoovie Review: The Guyver: This film comes from a time in the 1990’s when film companies got licenses (or didn’t more than likely) to anime titles in order to adapt them into live action format with the shoe-string budgets they had to work with. The results varied (mostly poor), but this film seemed to be that first pioneer from manga to the film reel in America. With Zeonic, Jonn and Sean forming our hip hop gang, we trek through the film encountering rapping monsters, corrupt CEO’s, making things work by bashing your head onto them, taking 8 hours to get lunch, how NOT to fight, and Luke Skywalker working for the G Man. We do our best to stay on topic, but run into trouble when it comes to certain off topic agendas.

(52:25 – 1:06:42) Closing Remarks: There was nothing short about wrapping up our podcast, not when we discuss the latest news about Chris Chan Guerrilla War against Sega, Sean trip to Orlando, and Zeonic calling out Regan.

(1:06:42 – 1:15:41) Bonus Material: This was even more off-topic stuff that Zeonic just left at the end for a stinger, which included people who can’t use headphones, and finding out what films Paul Chapman has reviewed. All this and more in this weeks episode.

Well, we’re in the year of the flying hoverboards, The 3rd Impact and probably other great futuristic movie predictions that escape Zeonic at the moment. However, our anniversary special is gonna be belated for a while, so sorry to tell you guys that. However, we don’t expect it to be as belated as this episode content, which has been collecting dust in our podcast vault for roughly the past 6 MONTHS!! So without further ado, you get to hear a full house of us talk about the 2014 Summer Anime Season!!!

(0:00 – 13:04) Pre-Introduction Segment: Zeonic did his best to edit this episode into a functional experience, but he could only put in so much work before cutting his losses and just rolling with it. Our full house includes the likes of Chibi Goku, Daft and Josh discussing subjects like the Astro Boy theater production, Zeonic talking about the Insufficient Direction anime/manga, our pre-thoughts on Gundam G Recongista, skype issues, the failed Harmony Gold kickstarter and more before we actually get to FINALLY introducing ourselves 13 minutes later.

(13:04 – 1:22:16) Summer 2014 Anime Review Part A: We split our segments up into two parts, which Part A will consist of our first impressions with Sailor Moon Crystal, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, Sword Art Online 2 and Space Dandy Season 2. We also dive into works by Kevin Smith,  MyAnimeList issues, hating on twitter people, and TOTALLY FAILING at doing podcast introductions, which explains why we never do them to begin with.

(1:22:16 – 1:24:34) Podcast Promo’s: Speaking of Jojo’s, we got the two men who’s karate is faster then anything you will ever see, because Dave and Joel have found their own way to hone and master such an art of martials. We give shout outs to Alpha Counter, as they continue to make episodes that no longer pertain to that #GamerGate fiasco. Also included is Anime World Order, who recently did a trivia episode to stump Paul “White Daryl” Chapman’s with useless anime trivia to make regular Daryl Surat be an even bigger jerkoff anime fan.

(1:24:34 – 2:27:42) Summer 2014 Anime Review Part B: This is essentially a Daft/Jonn segment of them talking about all the time wasted watching anime shows they thought were terrible, which included Terror in Resonance, Aldnoah Zero, Tokyo Ghoul, Akame ga Kill, Bakumatsu Rock and Rail Wars! This of course contains off topic commentary about the DashCon/bad MLP cons, Twitter feminist vs. Zeonic, the current state of anime cons, and much more.

(2:27:42 – 2:47:01) Bonus Content!!: This was content that would have made our off-topic talks even more off-topic, with pre-pre-review discussions about the GREATEST SKYPE CRASH OF THEM ALL!, Anime Expo/Jojo’s dub talk, Toonzone rants, past podcast drama, Marvel anime shows, and more.

Music Selection:

OP – Get ready to enter the RERO ZOOOOOOONE!!!!

ED – JUMP IN DAT PITZ

How that fits in 140 characters is beyond Zeonic’s understanding…

Well, no podcast for right now to celebrate out 2nd anniversary, but just me playing some import games I got back in Japan that I haven’t gotten around to trying out yet. So I ring in the new year with Scramble Commander games and another game by Sunrise that has all of their properties in one game…. that I never got to see. Well Happy 2015, and we’ll be posting something soon…
