With 2021 bringing back larger conventions again, Dustin and Jonn talk about their experiences with Anime Weekend Atlanta and Phoenix Toy Con.
(0:00 – 1:08:28) Convention Reports 2021: Jonn hits the ground running with what he did at Phoenix Toy Con the same time Dustin was at Anime Weekend Atlanta. While Jonn was getting great stuff like Bloodstained on the Nintendo Switch and other great comic goodies, Dustin was getting his moment in the spotlight with a grand AMV win at the VAT Exposition contest along with an award at Youmacon AMV Contest all at the same time. Both get into topics about Marvel films, Covid guidelines between the two conventions, things we bought and #LetsGoBrandon. Dustin goes extensively on how his Initial D and B.A.D. panels went, navigating the horrendous Atlanta 285 construction/World Series traffic, meeting industry peeps like Carl Horn, picking up import games of such anime series at random, sleeping at different places with different peoples cats, reading off crappy Evangelion poetry, playing Initial D Zero in the arcade, seeing Tiffany Grant again, Anitubers who rant against AWA because of questionable panels, and much more!
(1:08:28 – 1:59:39) Closing Remarks (i.e. more Chris “Jebuzz Sanix blu hart” Chan prison letters) – This is really self explanatory, this is how we spent our time Reading. These. Letters. Anything with other politics was very brief.

(0:00 – 34:15) E3 2021 Review – Nothing really much to say, because nothing really happened. A new Halo, some talk from a company about diversity in the gaming industry, you know the hard hitting stuff every gamer really cares about, right? In terms of games the company that showed up was Limited Run Games, which Dustin talks why everyone should get everything Zombies Ate My Neighbors from them. Its a great game BUY IT!!!

Probably our first real anime review since last year, but we honor the late Kentaro Miura by reviewing the 1997 Berserk anime and The Golden Arc Films.
This entire episode (or the most we can do to stay focused on talking about our topic) is dedicated to Dustin and Jonn views on the Berserk anime. There’s hardly anything for a closing remarks segment since we felt like we’ve overdone that in our last episode. This anime is personal to Dustin because he started to watch the anime the month Miura passed, let alone THE SAME DAY that no one knew about till it was made official 2 weeks later! This gets us to discuss other note while things like the Arthur PBS cartoon, our personal history in how we knew/got into Berserk, thoughts on animation issues, books vs. the film adaptations, check out a better Berserk podcast than we could ever hope to achieve, popular shonen titles, Record of Lodoss War and other fantasy anime talk, Dustin leaving Geeks under Grace with his official last article on the Initial D arcade scene, and much more!
We’ll be back hopefully in our next installment to talk about the 2016 and 2017 series.
OP – RIP Kentarou Miura
