Merry Christmas Listeners! We decided to go big with our yearly Christmas special to talk about the anime that starts with the letter V, as in Voltes V!

(0:00 – 1:23:25) Review: Voltes V (Filipino Dub) – With the upcoming release of Voltes V soon to come out from Discotek, Dustin was able to get the big hookup from Dave Merrill at AWA for the Honest and True English Dub of Voltes V that can only come from the great island nation of the Philippines. We go into spoiler territory, but that should stop absolutely NO ONE from watching this show on their own accord. This gets us into talking about the show history in the Philippines, how Dustin thought one of the characters was a Sesame Street character, fanfiction writers like Sephirothslave and the web 1.0 era, the Romance Robot Trilogy, pre show remarks on making fun of Anime Superhero Discord stuff and much more!

(1:23:25 – 01:45:51) Holiday Closing Remarks – Dustin wanted the world to know about the greatest anime holiday episode in anime, and that is episode 44 of Brave Exkaiser. Seriously, go and watch it, its got ripped Santa! This also gets into talking about that new Vice movie, politics, comic book talk, how George “Herbie Dubbya” Bush died, Chris Chan proves that his mom isn’t dead, Love That Goku reaction to the Goku float in the Macy’s Parade, Dustin going to the Wally Gator Bowl and more.

It’s per tradition that we release convention reports half a year after the con happened, because oh freaking well. So if your wanting someone to drone on about their time at a con that you weren’t at during a long holiday flight or drive, we got your covered!

(0:00 – 1:34:15) Animazement 2018 Con Report – Dustin regales his tale of a con that happened when the weather was a whole lot warmer, where the first time in years he is a regular con lackey roaming the hallways and not dealing with patrons in the dealers room. Stories can be told about hanging out with other Otaku he’s know about online and their posse, Dustin old parking job and the economics surrounding that industry, modifying your SNES, getting sweet swag from Limited Run Games on a yearly visit, trying to talk to women at the bar with a Salvador Dali art work on their back, the dreaded bootleg dealer came back, rednecks whining about stuff they don’t have in public restaurants, drunken dads that roam the cons and more. This also includes how we thought the Starbucks training lead to other problems, seeing a Steely Dan/Doobie Bros concert in Atlanta, video game and anime talk, and much more.

(1:34:15 – 02:25:29) Closing Remarks Part 1 – This is just the opinions of ours relating back in May, that people have already forgotten about but ohwellwhocaresanyways. This includes televangelists who buy jets in the name of Jesus and Christianity talk, hot takes on the news, how Rosanne got cancelled and much more.

(02:25:29 – 04:03:30) Anime Weekend Atlanta 2018 Con Report – If anything was lacking from Animazement, AWA made that up tenfold. Dustin recants his experience by hanging out with his buddy downtown to ride on electric scooters after eating some Pho’King amazing food, getting the correct panelist badge, meeting with old friends, meeting cool people like Tim Eldred, Micheal Sinterniklaas, Darius Washington and Andy Field, talking about panels done at the convention (which were titled Anime in High Gear, Christianity in Anime and Mobile Suit Gundam in America), buying Neil Nadelman old Gundam laserdiscs, getting the sweet hookup on Voltes V from Dave Merrill, getting to meet the Corn Pone man himself in person, people who have seizures at the con and how the staff handles that proper, Is Daryl Surat a Pokemon Seizure Episode Denier that it was ALL A CONSPIRACY? and more.

(04:03:30 – 04:29:48) Closing Remarks Part 2 – Somehow we get into closing remarks territory with the past pre-hearing of the Kavanaugh case, banned episodes of Pokemon, general anime and politics talk, people who had complaints on panels at AWA from an alt-right perspective and more.
