Instead of doing three bite sized episodes for the listener, we’re gonna cram everything we recorded into one super deluxe crap-of-o-combo podcast for our listeners which involves reviews of the CoronaVirus, Chuck E. Cheese in the Galaxy 5000, Dirty Harry and Death Wish films.

(0:00 – 2:21:54) Act One: The George Floyd Arc – This was recorded in early June and it involves the thoughts of Dustin, Daft and Jonn giving commentary about the American social riots over the death of George Floyd and the CoronaVirus outbreak at that time. This also includes The (non)prophetic word by Tracy Cooke, Florida Man Pastor fights the power/virus, RIP Zac Bertschy, the Carl Macek ANN episode as well as other memorable ANNCast episodes, convention coverage of AgamaCon and WebCon2020, other online cons that happened at the time, 4Kids anime talk, the best of Peter Fay, Samurai Pizza Cats talk, Dustin doing awesome at AMV competitions and a whole lot more in store!

(2:21:54 – 4:24:15) Act Two: It’s all Funi Games at Chuck E. Cheese – We count this review of Chuck E Cheese In the Galaxy 5000 as an anime review for the sole purpose that it came from Funimation at the end of the 20th century, before the rat got replaced by Goku as the company cash cow. Before any of that happens, Dustin and Daft have a bit of backstory behind the animatronic adventures of Rock A Fire, how needless it is to have Weather Awareness, more covid talk, Dustin getting a SNK MVSX, arcade talk, Dustin tells his (non) heart wrenching story of being a Covid Survivor, the end of an Unknown Hinsin, Kluspo cartoons talk, discussions on Adult Swim shows and politics, Ralph Retort sex tape debacle and Ghost response to that, and much more in store!

(4:24:15 – 5:25:34) Act Three: The Death Wish’s of a Dirty Harry – Jonn and Dustin give their impressions on an overview of the Dirty Harry and Death Wish films, all the while talking about police procedures and politics behind them. This includes Dustin rant on BLM politics with Christianity, DNC talk, forgetting Teri Hatcher name from Lois and Clark, Dustin watching V: The Series and Star Fleet and much more!

So since everything con related is closed forever in 2020, let’s talk about the cons that Dustin and Cloud went too that happened last year that some have been sitting on the backburner for over a year at this point. This also marks our 150th episode!

(0:00 – 1:05:00) Animazement 2019 Review – This is one of many cons that didn’t and wasn’t going to happen this year, but hey its ok, you can hear about the fun time Dustin had 14 months ago. This includes Dustin being on the AnimEigo panel thanks to Robert Woodhead, meeting industry vets like Evan Jones, the best panel done by Phil Lee, con security talk, stories involving sketchy post offices in the middle of South Carolina, trash talking Universal Studios according to Josh Fairhurst, the yearly entertainment of street preacher vs. convention attendees, us being wrong about Macross license rights, and plenty more!

(1:05:00 – 1:21:15) Closing Remarks Part A – Who cares about old news from a year ago? No really, who would care? Probably no one, but oh well. It’s nothing special regarding outdated info on Chris Chan, the Ghost Show and Brexit in case anyone wants to listen or not.

(1:21:15 – 2:35:15) Anime Weekend Atlanta 2019 Review – This con was what, end of 2019 roughly, so its not too old to listen too. Dustin spins his tales of hosting badass panels, how the AWA app sucked ass, bad parents who let their kids see Descendants of Darkness, people dressed up like Antifa who scare children at panels, pissing off the ATL police MONTHS before people decided to riot in the streets to piss them off, meeting the @Blacotaku1 himself and getting cool mix VHS tapes, RIP John Witherspoon, trying to get your AMV to play at the con, and much more.

(2:35:15 – 2:44:40) Closing Remarks Part B – Old news for people who wouldn’t care regarding the DNC race in 2019, Dustin colabs with Bmar on a Ghost Trolling video, bad Bob Haney Batman comics, and Ghost talk in general.

(2:44:40 – 3:37:56) New York Anime Fest 2019 Review – This is our report from our silent contributor Cloud who went to this years New York Anime Fest. Before we dive into any con report, Dustin will cast grievance against Tom Styer for performing like crap in South Carolina DNC race. Cloud gives a run down of the con, but we go into the major guest there and his panel, Yoshiyuki Tomino. This also gets into seeing Char’s Counterattack on the big screen, audio issues, Pokemon talk, Stubbs BBQ in Austin, Texas and much more!

In true AoY podcasting tradition, when episodes keep piling up, it’s time to bundle them all together a-la Thanksgiving Special! Were gonna give you listeners a 3-in-1 Bundleru special with Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Dragonball Super, and Primal!

(0:00 – 01:04:00) Serving #1: A Stand Alone Complex (sorta) Review – Everything in this write-up was written sometime last month, but better late than never. This review is more of a revelation on what Dustin has been missing out on for the past 15 years by finally getting around to watching both Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex series. We cover what we can remember of the show, so expect there to be some spoilers afoot. This also gets into where in the hell Jonn was recording from in GodKnowsWhere, Texas, how Smore and their treatment of Galaxy Express 999, how Hash is a terrible Southern Delight, LIVE USER FAN MAIL!, and much more…

(34:20 – 45:40) “Hold On! I’ll call your right back!” Music Interlude – Jonn spirit journey was cut short and he cut out from the call, so DJ ZeekDaPhreek steps up to play 80’s metal music like Judas Priest and W.A.S.P.

(01:04:00 – 02:02:07) Closing Remarks 1 – This consists of Dustin saying goodbye to a very close friend, RIP Robert Axelrod, SouthEast Gaming Expo talk, changes in podcast hosts over at the ANNCast, #KickVic court discussion, how AniTubers are trash and much more…

(02:02:07 – 02:59:50) Serving#2: The overly late Halloween Special that is now a Thanksgiving Special – Primal and Dragonball Super – Primal is by far the best thing Tartakovsky has done, although Samurai Jack fans will beg to differ with that statement, but screw em! After discussing how great of show with the least amount of episodes shown so far, we then go into DB Super with a longer amount of episodes show that still had a good story in the end. This also goes into Dragonball in general and much more!

(02:59:50 – 04:15:04) Closing Remarks 2 – This includes the #KickVic/WeebWarz saga, Dustin part of Bmar Ghost Trolling Colab 3, Middle East politics and politics all around, Trolling AOC at a Town Hall, The American Moloch religion, Timbox new movie script Tim Zarus, Jonn internet acting crappy, Bible/Catholic talk and much more!

AoY Podcast #143 – Anime Boston/ Avengers: Endgame Review


This show has: “Don’t mess with me and Yugioh, i’m the King of that game!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 2:12:48)

Sorry for the delay on getting out an episode, but after our hiatus in July, we are back with us talking about Anime Boston and Avengers: Endgame.

(0:00 – 1:12:20) Con Talk: Anime Boston 2019 – The excuse Dustin is going to give for nothing coming out for about two months is the fact that summer was busy for him to not sit down and edit something together, but that doesn’t mean we had nothing recorded. Here we have our recording from Cinco De Mayo to kick off our discussion about Anime Boston from audience member Cloud and his time at Anime Boston again. This includes talk about the new City Hunter movie, him going to panels, Steven Universe talk, people who get overly offended at conventions to complain about them on forums and much more.

(1:12:20 – 1:59:00) Avengers: Endgame Review – Seeing how this film has topped James Cameron Avatar for bestest biggest blockbuster spectacular film ever made, Jonn and Dustin go into the film and spoil things about it if you haven’t seen it yet, but that was over 3 months ago so you listener should’ve seen it by now.

(1:59:00 – 02:12:48) Closing Remarks – This one is pretty light but enough to garner some discussion on lowcows like Ghost and Chris Chan, our thoughts on that wonderful “just-came-out-of-a-time-machine-and-must-be-sent-back-to-1993” Sonic live action film, and some other interests to talk about per usual.

Music Selection:

OP – Everybody’s waiting, getting crazy and anticipating the con once more…

ED – A time capsule of a movie concept best forgotten…

This show has:

Black Panther pulled the ultimate “HOLD MY DICK!” for the Avengers Team…

Oh…boy…
