AoY Podcast #121 – The Feast of Alvis Christmas Special (Penguin’s Memory Review)

Also known as: “Lost flippers in rice patties.”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:39:35)

It’s an Alvis Day miracle to have another yearly Christmas Special ready to go! So this year Jonn and Dustin talk about another miracle of an anime that we never thought would be fansubbed, but it came to fruition. This year we review Penguin’s Memory.

(0:00 – 35:15) Alvis Day Review: Penguins Memory – This is an anime that has been mentioned on this podcast in the past many times, but it was only a matter of time before certain fansubbers finally got around to making this anime to the anime fandom public. It’s like the movie The Deer Hunter, but with penguins, only it’s not really The Deer Hunter. Penguins Memory is a unique film based off the premise off Suntory Beer ads mixed in with the common ethos of 1980’s Vietnam War movies at the time. It’s truly a film that anime fans need to check out eventually. Along with both hosts staying on topic for once, there is the off topic discussions of how CW superhero shows are trash, the passing of Hiromi Tsuru and other anime featuring animals fighting in wars.

(35:15 – 1:39:35) Closing Remarks – Typical banter follows this segment with Chris Chan latest stupidity on video and stuff about Ghost from TCR. Included is how Dustin has finally graduated university (since he’s been in school since three podcasts ago), the failings of Roy Moore, the US soldier that defected to North Korea died recently, how dumb people Master thesis’s can be, Thor 3 and Justice League discussion, upcoming movies in 2018, the Disney/Fox merger and a whole lot more. Stay tuned for the greatest religious story ever told by Captain Murphy in the zinger.

  1. Merry Christmas guys. This sounds pretty wild I’ll have to download it. The only other Sanrio cartoon I’ve seen was Ringing Bell thanks to Doscotek.

    Congrats on the graduation Dustin.
