It’s that time of the year again where the Devilman brings good tidings and fear to Halloween, and bad comedy (should mention that hardly no editing has been done, so well just roll with it again to get this out on time – Dustin). This year we review CB Character Go Nagai World.
(0:00 – 1:07:25) Halloween Review: Go Nagai World – In keeping up with our hallows-eve tradition with the Devilman himself, this time we are joined by the more notable characters of Go Nagai that Devilman and the gang get to meet. This is an anime for the true Go Nagai fans out there, like those who own Super Deformed Double Feature because they are big ARTMIC fans. In this review we also go off the beaten path with “Dick”sploitation movies, Jeb Bush and his Turtles, what Dustin went as for Halloween, other Go Nagai properties (mainly Violence Jack, because that’s all that matters), our ideas of a Violence Jack video game, and much more.
(1:07:25 – 1:38:19) Closing Remarks – This was surprisingly short since this past month has been full of top headline stories, namely like how Chris Chan and his “Sweetheart” broke up, Dustin and Jonn thoughts on the world of Blade Runner, Toon Radio wont live again, how whoring out for cash like the rest of those YouTubers ain’t our style (not yet at least), and much more.
ED – Dicksploitation the Song…

AoY Podcast #118 – MegaConPod GO! (Animazement / AWA 2017)
Also known as: “Mom, this Pie is Totally AIRWOLF!”

After about 5 months of not putting out any con coverages, Dustin thought we can just double up and OD our listeners with two major cons in one episode with Animazement and Anime Weekend Atlanta.
(0:00 – 2:16:45) Animazement 2017 Review – Do people other than this podcast talk about cons 5 months after they happen? Well who knows, but it’s coming out now finally! Of course, this doesn’t go into Animazement immediately, not when Jonn had something to say about not going to see the failed assassination of Jason David Frank at Phoenix Comic Con. Jonn also talks about the dumb weapons policies to “protect” attendees that are not JDF and Robotech. It’s still about roughly 30 or so minutes in that Dustin talks about his con experience at Animazement. Included in this review is stories of the inside world of Limited Run Games, seeing your old teenhood house for the first time in years, how Strafe is inferior to Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, nerds who fail at hitting on girls, Justin Roland stories, people who bring their cats to cons, Antifa v. Street Preachers, not seeing this years Anime Hell, the History of Animazement, meeting forum members IRL, closing remarks of Timbox/Chris Chan and much more.
(2:16:45 – 4:49:07) AWA 2017 Review – Here’s a con that happened within a month that we can get a decent review out in time. This was Dustin first time going to AWA, and based on his 2 day experience, it’s a con worth going back too. This of course comes with meeting anime fan legends like Dave Merrill, Daryl Surat, Walter Amos, Neil Nadelman, and meeting new fans while there as well. This is also another instance where rooming with another forum member makes the con a better experience, and even doing a podcast drunk with them is also fun. Included is how Hell is done at AWA, old school anime dubs, buying up anime vinyl records and playing them on this recording, and more. Closing Remarks are about how the podcast is trying to monitize, the Las Vegas shooting/gun control laws discussion (there’s a part I meant to say was an amendment but said constitution by mistake. So if you caught that, my bad), Chris Chan relationship ends (before it ever got started), Jonn squeaky chair chimes in, Final Fantasy games, Dustin owning an SNES Classic and much more!
OP – Here’s to a great 20 years of Animazement…
ED – These cons were totally Airwolf…

AoY Podcast #117 – Super Gals Review
Also known as: “Light Lucario = Ran Kotobuki”
Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:33:12)
After having this DVD set collect dust in our pile-O-shame’s for over a year, Jonn and Dustin finally get around to talking about Super Gals.
(0:00 – 45:00) A
Super Shibuya Anime Culture Review: Super Gals – If you want to test the standards of any 2000’s anime comedy series can still hold up in today’s anime fandom, just leave it up to podcast reviewers to see how far they can stand a show before calling it quits. This is more of a review of the first two episodes of Super Gals than it is a whole series of Super Gals. Let’s not kid ourselves, these two episodes gave both hosts everything they needed to know about this anime. Super Gals is a parody of 1990’s Japanese fashion culture that lies somewhere between Kogal girls, Ganguro girls and fighting for justice because you’re daddy is a police chief. This also gets into talking about how Jonn has too much Hamtaro on his hard drive, defending Gundam 0083, if Super Gals can be used for CIA torture on terrorism, music history of Para Para, past ADV properties and much more.
(45:00 – 1:33:12) Closing Remarks: This is the hosts talking about the latest Chris Chan stuff and his supposed girlfriend/being on the NEWS AGAIN, Trump vs. NFL vs. First Amendment rights, how Toys R Us filed Chapter 11 (better article on that found from the angriest otaku out there), old and terrible podcasts, Cowboy Bebop vs. Outlaw Star, shootings in Tennessee, and Dustin trying to chime in while having the hiccups. Also this and more in this episode!
OP – Shibuya ROLL CALL!!!
ED – And well just Para dance our way out of this review…
