Happy New Year!!! 2018 will be our year and savior for humanity until such time when social media says its the worst year ever (like the end of every year on Twitter). So what better way to reign in the new year with our hosts ranting about Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
(0:00 – 2:40:15) The Dark Side Review! Star Wars: The Last Jedi – This film seems to be equally split between those who love and hate this film, just like the balance of the force. Dustin, Jonn and guest Vekou (who shows up about 45 minutes in) state their views on the film. As you can expect, spoilers are afoot in great detail. This lets us compare the Star Wars films to the Fast and Furious film series, how Jonn dog spoke up for animal rights on this film, how Disney can royally screw up a beloved science fiction series, and much more!
(2:40:15 – 4:27:09) Christmas Closing Remarks – This was recorded the next night with Jonn and Dustin keeping the mics warm on a post Christmas night, and more sound proof for Dustin since he recorded in his “sound proof” safe space closet (making his mic sound louder in the process). The remarks include bathroom gender rules, Dustin panels at Big Fandom Greenville, more Star Wars talk, what we got for Christmas, upcoming AnimEigo Kickstarters, video game talk, James Bond talk, Dustin Christmas movies he saw this year, 80’s cartoon themes and the goofyness of Voltron, Chris Chan and Ghost talk, the fall of Bitcoin and so much more!

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.

So for this years Thanksgiving special, we’ll talk about something we haven’t focused on in years, and that is an entire episode dedicated to video games. So join Dustin, Jonn and Josh to talk about Vidjer Gamez!
(0:00 – 01:26:10) Thanksgaming Special – This is a discussion mostly of what the podcast has been playing in our spare times when were not doing podcasts. Jonn and Josh talk extensively about the Nintendo Switch, Mario Odyssey and Zelda Breath of the Wild. Josh mentions the new Sonic Forces and Mania games, and Dustin goes into Gundam Versus, Final Fantasy X, Friday the 13th: The Game, and Windjammers. Of course other topics arise like Star Wars games, EA being the worst lottery company in the world (followed by how long it would take to unlock their crap), Final Fantasy collections that might not come out, and some banter about how Dustin never talked about the con he went to nor anything about the SNES Classic.
(01:26:10 – 1:51:35) Closing Remarks: Chris Chan spreads his Hyperdimensional Waifutunia autism across the state of Virgina for a week, The death of Charles “NotMarilyn” Manson and Della Reese, Political Sexual Misconduct talk, and much more!

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.

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!
