This time the gang is back in the pits of the DC comic book villain detention center, as hosts Dustin, Jonn and Daft go head to head with the Suicide Squad.

(0:00 – 1:21:51) Movie Review: Suicide Squad – I’ts been a while since we covered the DC spring release of Batman v. Superman, but it seems DC still wants to make sure it’s fans are keeping up to date on what is going on. Despite the hosts differing opinions on the film, one thing seems to be certain for what really DC fans have wanted for so many years on the big screen; and that’s to see Harley Quinn. Regardless of what the critics might say about the movie, even including us, we seem to think this movie is still going to make a lot of money at the box office. Of course with usual fare, Dustin, Jonn and Daft set up shop at the old abandoned podcast watering hole to ramble about comic books in general, how we are using the Slack to replace Skype (bout FREAKING TIME AMIRITE!), upcoming comic book movies, how Dustin feels that Suicide Squad might be part Cyber City Oedo (but not really), Deadshot would lose to Golgo 13 and much more.

(1:21:51 – 1:58:04) Movie Review: Killing Joke – After playing the Alan “Grand Wizardman” Moore theme song, it seemed to be the perfect transition into Jonn and Daft review of the Killing Joke DC animated movie. The review mostly went into what DC does and doesn’t do best when it comes to adapting comics to film, along with more comic book gripes and praises.

(1:58:04 – 2:25:20) Closing Remarks – The gang unwinds from this DC cinematic trip by Dustin talking about Electric City Comic Con (not Emerald City, my bad guys), the group giving commentary on the Olympics, Dustin joins a DoD:S clan, Sports talks, people on social media, and much more.

SPEAKING OF OUR UPCOMING 100TH EPISODE!!: We’re getting close to our 100th episode, so here is the deal: Episode 100 is coming up and both hosts want you listeners to send us some suggestions on what to do. Should we read email sent by you? Should we do a review of something? Show off our anime collection on video? Demolition Derby? I dunno, you tell us! So to send us suggestions, email us at: aoypodcast@gmail.com, or you could tweet at us over at@AoYPodcast. It’s that simple to use guys! Depending on how many people submit ideas, Dustin and Jonn will pick the most doable idea and execute it, and there will be recognition for it! So let the podcast know by Episode 99 and we will see what happens!

AoY Podcast #96 – Gundam the Origin 3 OVA Review


Untitled-8

Also known as: “How dare you guys say that was a Zudah, it’s a Zaku!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:24:21)

Once again, it’s back to back Gundam on this podcast, which might be the last time for a while, where this time Jonn and Dustin cover Gundam the Origin OVA 3: Dawn of Rebellion.

(0:00 – 17:16) Pre-Review Movie Review of Finding Dory – Sometime before the hosts get into Gundam, Finding Dory came out and Dustin talked about a bit of the film with Jonn, which then lead to the real issue of the movie: entitled millennials who think the movie is all about their childhood needs and not for the rest of the kids in the theaters. There is also some other talk about other kids movies that take forever to come out, and the lives of the rich and stupid of the New England States of ‘Merika!

(17:16 – 1:04:58) Review: Gundam the Origin OVA 3 Review – Both hosts sit down and cover the overall OVA in general of what happens, so maybe some spoilers are afoot. In all honesty, both hosts spent most of this time talking about other Gundam stuff, anime on American TV, ideas for Sunrise and Bandai to get off their butts and make a proper 40th Anniversary release of Gundam the Origin for a new audience, the change in political and individualism within Gundam, and much more.

(1:04:58 – 01:24:21) Closing Remarks: With this recording happening sometime at the end of June, both host were scrapping the bottom for closing remarks comments, but managed to scrounge some up. Jonn mentions more Ghost accusations, the conspiracy of what was in Gundam the Origin Mobile Suit Development, ideas for our 100th episode coming up soon, and much more.

SPEAKING OF OUR UPCOMING 100TH EPISODE!!: Ok, so we at the podcast take it as anyone reading this knows how to access this site from the web and gets our episodes from here. If you do, you know the internet better than most people. So here is the deal: Episode 100 is coming up and both hosts want you listeners to send us some suggestions on what to do. Should we read email sent by you? Should we do a review of something? Show off our anime collection on video? Demolition Derby? I dunno, you tell us! So to send us suggestions, email us at: aoypodcast@gmail.com, or you could tweet at us over at @AoYPodcast. It’s that simple to use guys! Depending on how many people submit ideas, Dustin and Jonn will pick the most doable idea and execute it, and there will be recognition for it! So let the podcast know by Episode 99 and we will see what happens!

AoY Podcast #95 – Gundam Evolve Review

Because of RightStuf! efforts in putting out more Gundam, our podcast has gone through an evolutionary change with our review of Gundam Evolve.

(0:00 – 1:05:25) Review: Gundam Evolve – Our podcast has now evolved into the next stage in human nerdvolution. Gundam Evolve is 15 short films involving short side stories and what-was-then cool looking CGI 3D model effects from the early 2000’s. If you happen to be a big Gundam nerd, then this is up your ally to add to your collection. As per usual on the podcast, the review usually starts about 10 minutes after the recordings started, where Jonn and Dustin talk about the DVD cover of Super Gals! This only gives more ammunition to Dustin 1990’s memory of the only show on Nickalodeon that mattered, while both hosts go off the review grid a bit to mention the fall (and rise again) of Tokyopop, the stories behind Shin Matsunaga and Johnny Ridden, Dustin repressed 90’s pop music memories, Gundam sunglasses and much more. For a review of animated shorts after the 1990’s, this episode feels more like a 1990’s nostalgia trip than anything else.

(1:05:25 – 1:26:07) Closing Remarks – This time closing remarks are pretty short, where we mention our thoughts on the impact the Orlando Shooting had, American politics, Toon Radio stupidity, and more.

Music Selection:

OP – Gundam is an Evolution not to be reckoned with…

ED – Oops, I guess I remembered the 90’s again…

The only show on Nickalodeon that counted…
