You can consider this an excuse to cover for this years Valentines Day special, which well just take the year off reading comments this go around. We decide to resurrect the four horsemen of the pod-calypse, with returning guest Daft and our resident ex-Gundam/Evangelion fanboy Vekou, into reviewing Neon Genesis Evangelion 3.33: You Can (Not) Redo.
(0:00 – 52:15) A Long Time Coming Review: Evangelion 3.33 – It has been almost 5 years since the four of us sat down and talked about Evangelion 2.22 in the days when were were a bunch of Kool Kids in our little podcast Klub. Now fate has finally brought us together to talk about this movie IN THE MIGHTY ELTINGVILLE CLUB MANNER! Despite who may listen to this podcast, hardcore Evangelion fan or not, this review came the day after Dustin bought his bluray copy from Best Buy, and his thoughts and emotions on this movie are rather raw. This is all in the perspective in how we all first saw this film, which you may or may not agree with our opinions on that, and that’s fine. We don’t dive into great detail in the film, but we do try and clarify a few things the best we can. Also included in our discussion is how Dustin let his girlfriend see this film for the first time WITHOUT any prior knowledge to Evangelion, the Tony Takezaki Evangelion manga, Evangelion in general, Daft and his obsession with getting an Eva Unit 01 head, 4D Evangelion, and what the hell happened to Gainax?
(52:15 – 1:38:34) THE ELTINGVILLE CLUB STYLE CLOSING REMARKS OF YOUR DOOM!! – We never “officially” announced we were in closing remarks, because with Daft and Vekou being part of the recording, Jonn and Dustin just kinda fibbed it and went along with the off topic ramblings. Somewhere along the line, we stopped talking about Evangelion, and started to talk about; the documentary of Mr. Hands, Wings of Honneamise sequel, how Dustin knows crappy hentai titles, Miyazaki boxset w/ Studio Ghibli talk, the new Lupin show (PRONOUNCED “LEU-PAWN” NOT “LEU-PIN,” GET IT RIGHT!), The Funimation/Echolight Rick Santorum conspiracy, Power Rangers fan film, the Ballet of Stewie17, Chris Chan gets interviewed, RIP to Reese White and Joe Alaskey, how we were all dead wrong on the Carolina Panthers winning the Super Bowl (except Vekou), teens who buy overpriced anime crap and more.
If you want to read Dustin write-up about Evangelion 3.33 the morning after, here is his rambling at his new “blog-he-had-to-make-for-school-again” blog over at Kanazawa MechaLords.
And to those brave enough to care, Dustin has a .rar of those Evangelion reviews we did 5 years ago for anyone to check out here at this link.

So its been about November since we reviewed any older anime, and it’s high time we bring that back to the listeners. This time, both hosts Dustin and Jonn hop aboard the Kamiya and set sail on a wild adventure with our favorite womanizing space explorer, in Space Adventure Cobra: The Movie.
(0:00 – 55:58) Review: Space Adventure Cobra: The Movie – This is a film both Dustin and Jonn have been looking at for a couple of years now to review, and now both host have finally set their eyes towards the galaxy of high anime adventure. This Cobra film was a blast from start to finish, and it never stopped anywhere for a second to slow down. Cobra wants to tell you a story and fully expects you to strap in and hold on from start to finish, all the while having a blast in the process. This is full of babes, guns, space, ice planets and people who CANT MAKE THAT SHOT! Both host go into the film from start to finish, but that shouldn’t sway your opinion to not watch this thing. There were some off-topic stops during the review about Dustin watching Space Pirate Captain Harlock on Hulu, Hulu vs. Netflix, CPF talks about the dubbing on Harlock, our co-host Josh and his snoring issues, discussing Cobra TV, manga and the movie, people who are terrible fansub groups, nipples in anime, MSNBC vs. ani-twitter and more.
(36:08 – 38:30) Podcast Promo’s – It’s been a while since the last time we added podcast promo’s, so we should again give credit where credit is due. Anime World Order has been on the podcast beat for 10 years now, and they decided to spend their episode talking about shows from last year, and a promise of a high speed drifting review coming next… maybe. Jeff from the Daily Anime Podcast last spent his episode talking to his girlfriend/aka Love Plus waifu jailbait. Seriously, Jeff don’t do that again, but you at least explained why you did it, but no more…. EVER AGAIN! Fast Karate came back to talk about games, and make fun of Edgar from 24, which made Dustin laugh the hardest at a Fast Karate episode for the first time in a couple of years. They also lasted 10 years, but that was months ago, so let’s move on.
(55:58 – 1:31:53) Closing Remarks – The review conversation naturally transitions into discussing people who can’t figure out voice actors, Dustin gives advice on how to make his girlfriend Dori into a Gundam fan, failed promoters for our podcast, Dustin turned 30 (i.e. his “otaku expiration date” has come and must be renewed) and celebrated the occasion by watching Logan’s Run, 70’s science fiction movies talk, we say RIP to Lemmy Kilmister, David Bowie, Alan Rickman and Glenn Frey, America and their “Fast and Furious” goof on El Chapo, Chris Chan news, people who are white knights for Chris at places that Dustin knew in Raleigh, and comic book store bathroom troubles. All this an much more in this weeks episode.
OP – In a podcast review not too far, far away…
ED – RIP Glenn Frey…

Micheal York might have a point about being 30…
Check out the Cobra English Pilot… pretty sweet stuff…
