In this Omnibus Collectors Edition of the podcast, you get a bundled 3 Marvel movies in one super packed episode, featuring Deadpool 2, Logan and Guardians of the Galaxy 2!

(0:00 – 46:00) Issue #1: Deadpool 2 – We start out our review to tell RighStuf were sorry in dropping the ball on promoting them, and we hope by telling the listeners of this sweet deal on the Outlaw Star Collecters Edition will make up for that big mistake. This is mostly the hosts talking about their best parts of the film and talking about comics in general. Also included is Dustin being happy Cable is finally in a movie, talking about the little things that makes this movie really good, how people have issues with asians with colored hair, Rob Liefeld designs rantings, Dustin and his mistake on creating Rapters in Jurassic World Evolution, and much more!

(46:00 – 2:13:30) Issue #2: Logan/Guardians 2 COMBO PACK! – This was a recording we’ve had in the backroom of our podcast vaults for over a year because Dustin didn’t know when to put it out when we recorded it over a year ago, which was roughly before he went to Animazement last year! All we had to do was dust off the package and BAM, it’s as good as sold on the front shelf! This starts out with how to fix your internet with magical powers of the Scotsman, Jonn and his story seeing Logan in the “Two Dollar Tard Theater,” retro gaming talk, land owners rights and imminent domain laws, Logan and the Weapon X discussion, Future of X-Men movies, how Disney loves to screw up Star Wars and much more!

(2:13:30 – 04:13:35) DOUBLE BONUS CLOSING REMARKS! – This goes into closing remarks from over a year ago with whatever the political turmoil was in the middle east with ISIS (but that’s pretty much taken care of anyways, so whocaresmovingalong), that bombing of the Ariana GrandeLatte concert, history lesson of how (not) well communism works, rantings on “raising awareness” including that great American Dad episode making fun of it, Late SHOUTOUT to the passing of Sir Roger Moore and how he was in Spice World, James Bond talk, old Timbox info, Samurai Jack talk from last year and a bunch more nonesense. This of course goes into the next portion of recent closing remarks with latest Chris Chan news of him melting down at Too Many Games, how the LGBT are imploding on themselves, general politics, Dustin gives a fair review of Augusta GA, Family Guy being spot on with millenials and much more!

(0:00 – 51:45) The Anime Boston Chronicles: Chapter Cloud – Our resident Precure fanboy Cloud stops by and fills us in on his adventure at Anime Boston, filled with meeting Guest of Honor, buying stuff and places to eat.

AoY Podcast #126 – Outlaws vs. Cowboys: The Bebop Stars of Space


Also known as: “The Beau Billingslea Power Hour on Toonami!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 3:05:30)

We talk about the two biggest titans in the galaxay among anime fans in the early 2000’s, where we review Outlaw Star and Cowboy Bebop!

(0:00 – 45:40) Review: Outlaw Star – This podcast episode is the historic record of the pinnacle of what was important to anime fans on Cartoon Network starting from 2001 and beyond. Outlaw Star was a big anime among the viewers of Toonami, and Dustin heard about this show for years until he finally saw the series shown on Toonami recently for the first time. Both hosts Jonn and Dustin and special guest Daft chime in to talk about the overview of the series with some spoilers thrown in. This also includes how its vital importance that Jonn dad tells Jonn in the call that the dog is eating cheese off the floor, the stupidity of Transformers cartoons, Outlaw Star merch in America, FLCL revival talks, will Hamtaro be on Toonami for Aprils Fools Night? (as of this writing, Adult Swim showed FLCL Alternative subtitled on TV, followed by Mind Game, and a bunch of the regular block airing in the same format, because I’m writing this about 1am on April Fools night – Dustin), Toonami censorship on TV and much more.

(45:40 – 1:39:00) Review: Cowboy Bebop – This episode marks the 20th anniversary since the anime first aired on TV Tokyo, and how it later showed up that late summer on the new Adult Swim block on Cartoon Network in 2001. Both hosts recant how much of an impact Bebop has had on them as anime fans all these years later, including the merch that’s out there (you can find the pdf of the Bebop Anime Guides here at my blog – Dustin). This goes into account what particular episode got Dustin involved in Bebop, our top 3 Bebop episodes, the TV edits, and a whole lot more!

(1:39:00 – 3:05:30) Closing Remarks – This is chock full of material that covers for the month of March since we last recorded, including how Love that Goku got social services on his butt, Linkara leaving TGWTG and the twitter thread full of the company drama, Meson in dire need, the fully funded Kickstarter for Gunsmith Cats, The Toys That Made Us Netflix Documentary series, Dustin con talks on Toylanta and SC Comic Con, RIP Toys R Us/southern food stores/Return of KB Toys, the Mystery of Miami Mike finally solved by The Anime Nostalgia Podcast and the stupid weeaboo drama that follows on the ANN Forums, Dustin mentions his thoughts on Pacific Rim 2, and much more!

AoY Podcast #125 – Wakandan Panther Review


 

Also known as: “I will kick the tree over right into the [sic] ground and climb it horizontally…”

 

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 2:23:25)

This time we discover the lost imaginary nation of Wakanda and hunt down the interests of a black panther in the Marvel universe with our review of Black Panther.

(0:00 – 57:00) Movies Review: Black Panther – Now that the film as of this episode has broken the one billion dollar box office amount, the highest rated movie on Rotten Tomatoes and is the center of American political social media discussion, both Dustin and Jonn just see the film as another Marvel movie. Both get into the politicized rhetoric of online reviewers who praise this movie, Dustin discusses Death Wish and Mazinger Z Infinity as being far better films than Black Panther, and also discuss what we liked and didn’t like about the film.

(57:00 – 2:23:25) Closing Remarks – It’s once again time for opinions about all the events that has happened in the past month since our last episode, which leaded to discussions about gun control, should teachers be armed, Alex Jones v. CNN v. Youtube, the GRAND RETURN of Love That Goku, Dustin attends the Atlanta SciFi Expo (which as of this post, the website is 404, so that should tell you something) in a ghetto mall, Jonn mentions the Black Lightning show, Toonami boob censorship, latest Chris Chan documentary and much more.

AoY Podcast #122 – The Dark Side Christmas Special (Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review)


Also known as: “What planet grows grey tomato’s… THAT ARE ROCKS!?”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 4:27:09)

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!
