AoY Podcast #73 – Taking on Indiegogo Perks #1 (The Legend of Black Heaven Review)


Also known as: “Hard Rock TO SAVE TEH SPACE!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time – 55:30)

Hey, remember when we used to do anime reviews? Yea, the gang vaguely remembers doing them also. But hey, were back on the anime beat, and this time we start to cover those Indiegogo perks we promised at the early part of the year. This time we got a request from Sean Ryan from the Alpha Counter podcast to issue us the most rockin anime out there, The Legend of Black Heaven.

Again, we don’t need no time codes for this episode, since it was Zeonic and Sean sitting in the middle of a back ally hallway of the Marriott late Saturday night during Animazement. This is also where frequent con goers and hotel staff kept coming by us during the recording, which was near the most desired restroom in the entire hotel mind you, so you’ll hear zingers of that at the end of the episode. The Legend of Black Heaven is an anime Zeonic has always heard good things about over the years, and finally had the chance to watch and thoroughly enjoy this OVA. Even though Black Heaven is more relatable to people reaching their Logan’s Run age expiration date and beyond, anyone can pick up this title and enjoy it, wither you are musically inclined or not. This would also be this podcast second review of anime based off music, since our first one was about To-Y 2 years ago. Of course, you can expect some “sidebar” discussions about anime Terry Crews, talking about music in general, how american football is really “handegg,” Masters of the Universe movie synopsis, and Zeonic gets the hiccups. All this and much more in this this weeks episode…

Music Selection:

OP – Get ready to go backstage with Zeonic and Sean

ED – The moral of this anime is, don’t start a band…

This show has:

Dunno why Zeonic first thought of anime Terry Crews was in Friday After Next, but that is how his pimp mind works sometimes…

And you wonder why the Japanese have a hard time understanding Americans…

In general, AMV’s are the worst way to promote a show to make someone think it’s going to be great. However, this AMV is an exception, just go see Black Heaven already.

Per request by Sean Ryan…

  2. Dude this sounds amazing. I gotta seek this one out.

    I always refer to Terry Crews as Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho in my head.

    • That is one hell of a long name man, I feel like Crews gets another name for every man or product placement he kills.

      Yea I was super impressed by this anime, so I hope our recording convinced people to check this out.

      Also, your or Cory are going to be next on the Indiegogo list, so I need you to email/FB message us your skype contact info so we can get that squared away man.

        Well mission accomplished dude. At least for me.
