Well, here we are in the middle of the anime convention season, and already some of us here at the podcast have done our time at these big conventions. This time we have Daft and another guest Cloud to cover their experience at Anime Boston…

(0:00 – 1:19:45) Spring Convention Report – Anime Boston 2015: This is the first of our con reports that will be coming out in the coming weeks, as Daft and Cloud talk about the New England convention of Anime Boston. Daft tells about how it was to talk to Richard Epcar, going to panels hosted by Harmony Gold, Daft hosting his own panel, and that Anime Boston is SECRETLY PART OF A CONSPIRACY TO SHOW OFF IT’S ULTIMATE FORM, STANDING IN LINES!!!! Cloud mentions how he got screwed over in doing a panel, plus the two mention other complaints about the convention regarding from security to disabled people online talking about their gripes with the con. But, aside from that, they both seemed to have fun.

(1:19:45 – 1:52:43) The Lolcow Hour/Closing Remarks: It shouldn’t come to anyone’s surprise that the rest of this time is dedicated to still trying to talk about and uncover more information on Chris(tine) Chan ultimate objective in life.

Music Selection:

OP – It took so long to realize this episode needed to come out…

ED – It is the opinion of the entire staff that Chris Chan is criminally insane…

Every year in California, the Electronic Entertainment Expo becomes that milestone that video game fans look forward too to indicate that summer finally begins. This year was the year that dreams did come true to many fans across the globe, even dreams that us podcast hosts have been waiting for many years.

We really don’t need a time code for this episode, since we stay true to staying on topic on what happened at E3 this year. June 16th, 2015 will mark a milestone date for both Jonn and Zeonic as the day Shenmue 3 was announced that launched a hugely successful Kickstarter that even crashed Kickstarter themselves. This also gets us into talking about dreams coming true for Kingdom Hearts 3, the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, The Last Guardian, and much more. If you can’t tell already, (but let’s break it down for you again), that this podcast totally called out the idea of Shenmue coming to Kickstarter when we were talking with Lisle Wilkerson last year, so we are total trend setters of the gaming industry without anyone really knowing it.

This also gets us into discussing what happened during the other conferences (and how the HoloLens is just Strange Days tech come to life), the breakdown of the Nintendo World Championship 2015, Conkers Bad Fur Day talk, latest with Chris Chan and much more. Also, Josh gives his big plug for his personal blog at Cartoon Historian, where he spends a lot of time researching and writing about early American television animation that is largely forgotten about, and why you should care. He is basically becoming the next generation of Fred Patton without even knowing it.

Music Selection:

OP – When Shenmue comes your way, you dream on!!!

ED – These Shenmue dreams go on as I close my eyes…

This show has:

That was how I felt in that moment too…

So for anyone wanting to know what this game is about, let these drunken Irish developers tell you all about it…

Big question, does this game still hold up almost 2 decades later?

AoY Podcast #65 – The Psychotic Nashicon Wars (Nashicon 2015/Psychic Wars Review)

and also: “He punches the crap outta cancer!”

It is once again the start of Con season for the podcast, as Zeonic takes his yearly leave for this years Nashicon. Of course this episode will mark a historic landmark, as a live person enters the podcast “studio” (a.k.a., Zeonic room) to do a live recording with us. Let’s just say, we will do better next time. So, join us and our special live guest Vincent Baker from Otherworlds as we do our convention review and anime review of Psychic Wars.

(0:00 – 27:44) Convention Review – Nashicon 2015: This might be the first time ever that a con report is less than 30 minutes long, only because there wasn’t too much to gripe about. Both Zeonic and Vincent felt that the con stepped their game up in terms of getting good guest like returning champion Spike Spencer and newcomer Kyle Hebert to stop by Colombia S.C. What sweetened the pot even more was that Windjammers was available, so of course Zeonic got his fill of FLYING POWER DISK-U. We also mentioned the issues with how certain panels were ran this year, our guest Vincent discussing his upcoming game,  switching out to another mic in the studio (which… wasn’t a good idea), and Vincent discussing Triad Anime Con as being a featured guest there.

(27:44 – 43:51) Interview – Vincent Baker: So this interview was conducted behind the registration booth at the con since Zeonic saw it as the least chaotic area in the convention to talk to Vincent. Vincent was able to sit down and answer some questions and go into details about the Otherworlds game, which the Kickstarter to that will be updated on this post when it gets released on May 1st. So if your interested in the game, please give him all your money (or what you realistically want to give).

UPDATE! (May 2nd): Here is the link for the Otherworlds Kickstarter, so if you want to contribute, just click here to go to the Kickstarter page!!

(43:51 – 46:04) Podcast Promo’s: Our last promo was from February, so it’s high time we do another one. Alpha Counter has been keeping current with their once a week schedule for shows, which this latest episode is about upcoming films this summer. Anime World Order recently put out an episode reviewing The Anime Encyclopedia 3rd Edition, which even our latest promo aired on their episode, so thank you AWO gang! In other big news, the Daily Anime Podcast has released some more episodes, with Parasyte The Maximum and more Legend of Galactic Heroes talk.

(46:04 – 1:16:53) Review: Psychic Wars OVA: This was an anime that Jonn mentioned in our Crystal Triangle episode, which prompted Zeonic to watch it at 1 a.m. the night before. Regardless of this anime’s flaws, it is able to tackle one issue in question that is a worldwide cause of concern, and that is how to properly cure cancer. Of course this gets us off topic to talk about how to play the Shemue games, closing remarks on Chris(tine) Chan status update, proper tooth care, and briefly mentioning Chris Chan to Vincent, which he doesn’t need to honestly know. All this and more in this weeks episode.

Music Selection:

OP – It’s bout time we jam up this con once more…

OP2 – Time to dawn on our Jesus powers to punch cancer…

ED – After seeing this anime, we are now true veterans of The Psychic Wars…

Download Special Announcement!!

Indiegogo Campaign – Operation: Unite The Anime of Yesteryear Podcast!

It’s now official, our Indiegogo campaign has launched!! To make things short, Jonn and Zeonic have been talking about doing an indiegogo on the past couple of episodes, but now it has become a reality.

The overall purpose is to get Jonn to meet with Zeonic at Animazement this year, and we feel this is the time to strike! We feel that after 2 years, we can use crowdsourcing to make this small goal a reality since both co-host have been wanting to get together for even longer than this podcast has existed. But we need your help to make this happen!

If you click on our Indiegogo link at the top, it will tell you whats in store for the people who want to contribute to our cause. We have plans lined up to do panels, meet other podcasters at the convention, and to do an anime review while were there (which is a given consequence, let’s be real here). We don’t want to make it sound like your paying for Jonn flight to Raleigh North Carolina for nothing, because we have fairly good perks for the people who donate, so people will gain from our campaign. And if your going to the con anyways, make sure to meet us at our panels or us walking around, because we will gladly talk to those who listen and contribute to our podcast, no matter how much you give!

We want to say a hearty thank you to all our listeners, contributors and friends who keep up with us and our podcast! All the information about the campaign is listed in the link above, so check it out! An upcoming podcast will be out soon, so stay tuned!

So this episode might be the only thing released in November, but oh well, since thats how it goes when papers are due and test are being studied for. At least this time for Zeonic sake, a con report isn’t released 3 months after the con ended, but only by a month!! We totally know what were doing, as Zeonic gets to dive into his adventures about BanzaiCon 2014!

(0:00 – 1:06:41) Con Report: BanzaiCon III (2014): This is the first time Zeonic has stayed for a South Carolina con for more than a day, and he has some good ventures out of his experience. This is all entailed about getting locked out of your car, cats that break computer equipment, broken air conditioning systems, watching SEC college football, getting rid of junk, people who leave shoes in con rooms, meeting cool Trekkies, and outdoing other people’s panels (at least in Zeonic mind). Of course for no logical reason, Jonn and Zeonic spiral off topic throughout the podcast about RightStuf getting Gundam, the gradual death of American Cartoons, a GIGANTIC discussion about Science Fiction films/books/etc, Ultraman talk and much more.

(1:06:41 – 1:18:20) Bonus Content: Here is the part of the podcast where Zeonic recorded the conversations from the older con attendees at BanzaiCon, where they relish in telling tales about debating the writings by Richard Matheson, Science Fiction movies, and drinking all in good fun. About half way through that the audio will fade out and in to indicate the break of when the group went out to smoke and then came back at the table. So enjoy the bonus!!

AoY Podcast #52 – The Angry Black Video Lagoon Gaming Nerds! (AVGN: The Movie / Black Lagoon Review)

Also known as: “TerminMAIDer… Ter-min-maid, AHHHURHURRR!!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:45:34)

It has been a long while since the Holy AoY Podcast Trinity were able to come together and review a movie and a show in one episode (actually this might be THE ONLY TIME EVER!) We are once united with our overly quiet podcast co-host Josh, as we get to discuss the most recent Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie being released online, and give our feedback on the moral misgivings of dumbass internet forum debates about Black Lagoon. 

(0:00 – 49:27) – A Non-Anime Movie Review: The Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie: The trinity was needed to discuss the lifetime project of James Rolfe and his angry endeavors of reviewing old video games on the internet, which then lead him to achieve the ultimate goal of turning all that hard work into a movie, which is a lot of hard work. So, like everyone else on the internet, we wanted to give our say on his hard work over the past few years. Of course before we get into any of that, we decide to rant about water issues in the West, the deep rooted forum stupidity behind Toonzone.net (aka, Zeonic becoming a Class A Cyber Criminal one lame post at a time), which then leads us to talking about the film. We decided to approach the film with us talking about the parts we liked (aka some Spoilers you know), and really reviewing the character of The Nerd and his evolution throughout the years on the internet. We also discuss how we first got into The Nerd, which in turn gets us into our roots a little on how we got to know each other online. Dare I say a podcast origins episode might turn up one day? Well, you’ll just have to wait and see about that.

(49:27 – 52:30) Podcast Promos: With Alpha Counter making the funding goal on their Indiegogo page, we figure we owe it to them to play a promo for them. Dave and Joel seem to be releasing more episodes recently than they have in the past few months; because with JoJo’s and Destiny out in force, they are there too get on that beat. Speaking of releases, The Daily Anime Podcast decided to recently release their review of the To Terra movie, which was just Jeff talking about the film for 20 odd minutes, since I know he read the manga for a while.

(52:30 – 1:45:34) The Toonzone Debacle: Black Lagoon Review: Due to the dismay of one particular internet forums opinions (keep reading past the post on the link if you dare), we unite the trinity once more to discuss the recent end of the airing of Black Lagoon on Toonami. Our opinions are mixed on this show, as Zeonic believes that it might be the greatest show to air on Toonami in its entire history, and believes anyone who opposes that idea is a “pansy female reproductive organ.”Jonn on the other hand is not all in alignment to Zeonic Toonami prophetic enlightened views, and Josh just cares about how many BEEPS the show got on TV. We decide to not spoil too much on the show itself; and use the flames of war, cast by a Toonzone Mod unbeliever, to discuss the human, psychological and moral viewpoints of the world in Black Lagoon. Maybe we are giving this show too much credit, but then again, maybe not enough (only because deep down, Zeonic believes Black Lagoon is the best modern day anime equivalent to a 1990’s Manga UK dub.) Care to weigh in your opinion listeners? This also ends with us discussing Zeonic panel plans for BanzaiCon, how we successfully trolled ToonRadio, and much more.

Convention Note: If anyone is going to BanzaiCon in a couple of weeks, you have a chance to see Zeonic continue to spew his anime nerd knowledge upon the masses of Naruto headband wearing, Hetalia flag waving, Titan slaying anime nerds that will be present. On Saturday from 6 to 7pm, Zeonic will show his Robot Anime Openings of the 1980’s; which will showcase openings to mecha anime, and even some that made it to the states. Then on Saturday from Midnight to 2am is the cream de la cream to what all panels want to aspire to be, and that is the “WHAT THE HECK?” MOMENTS IN ANIME: THREE TIMES THE MISCHARMED!! It is essentially the closest thing BanzaiCon has to an Anime Hell at this point, and people must know THE TRUTH behind what anime is really about.

Music Selection:

OP 1  – The underlining theme song to the true nerds out there…

ED 1  – Pretty sweet film Nerd, i’ll give him that…

OP 2 – Get ready to get drawn into the underworld…

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 2:09:35)

So to keep up with putting out these late convention reports, Zeonic was able to report on his yearly trek to the convention land that is Animazement, that was about 3 months ago. There is really no side conversation in this one, well, minus a few things here and there as per usual.

(0:00 – 1:01:37) Convention Coverage Part 1: This had certain things Zeonic griped about regarding the parking situation in areas, comic book shop owners (which prompt Zeonic to get the Zillion CD he mentioned), Zeonic hooks up with friends to play Windjammers and other strange arcade games, meeting up with other podcasters, the issues that college campuses face regarding running anime conventions, THE TRUTH regarding what happens to Kill La Kill cosplayers in the dealers room, THE TRUTH on those damn idiots who start Marco/Polo at these conventions, and more TRUTH after the promos…

(1:01:37 – 1:04:24) Promo’s: Since we went ahead and mentioned these people on our show (and from what we gather they did the same for us on theirs) we got a promo from Alpha Counter, Mating Habits of the Modern Geek, and our old homeboyz The Daily Anime Podcast (which BTW Jeff, when are you gonna keep doing Pokemon Unicron Brothahoodz? I sent you my recording over a month ago, what are you doing with it dawg?)

(1:04:24 – 2:09:35) Convention Coverage Part 2: Zeonic starts off by having Trish Ledoux point Zeonic in the right direction to see the man that every old school anime fan wants to see (and those who gave them their hard earned Kickstarter money), Robert Woodhead. After talking to Robert for a spell, Zeonic went on a spell as well regarding the issues of Animazement handling their “rules” in terms of autograph lines, more TRUTH on overestimating the Gundam fans in anime conventions when it comes to having line limits for autographs, going to the Gundam Rising panel late (you can see the part 1 and part 2 of the panel at those links), getting the sweetest hookup from Toshifumi Yoshida,  Legend of Galactic Heroes talk, MORE TRUTH on anime fans at conventions who would rather torrent every damn thing than spend any money to helping the industry, finding obscurely rare anime books from the past, Zeonic idea to do an anime convention “reenactment,” and a ton more to say.

Music Selection:

OP – The current theme for all Gundam fans in America…

ED – Greatest arcade game ever…

AoY Podcast #48 – SpringCon Report Pt 1 (NashiCon 2014/Video Game Discussion)


Also known as: “She had me at Cyber City Oedo…”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:18:37)

Ok, so here’s the deal guys: This con was back in April of this year, so almost 4 months ago, and Zeonic is NOW getting this report out towards the end of the summer. I am sure there was ample time to for him to put something out between now and then, but he didn’t, and he really doesn’t care. Zeonic can’t blame this one on procrastination (well, maybe a little bit) because hey, if you check on what came out between now and April, we have had a full plate on talking about a variety of things that has happened. So without further ado, here is what Zeonic thought about Nashicon. (WARNING: THE AUDIO SUCKS IN THIS!)

(0:00 – 35:00) The beginnings of a Convention Report: NashiCon: Being how this is Zeonic 3rd year to attend NashiCon, it is an improvement from last years venue he must say. With a kicking game room done by the people who do the game rooms for Animazement, actual guest like Robert Axelrod and Lisle Wilkerson to attend this year and panels of interest to go too, this has gone up in quality to his con standards (I guess I can’t talk to much there.) This also gets Zeonic to talk about an “obscure” anime panel that he believed had anything to do with obscure anime, getting to know artist alley girls by their mention of Kawajiri anime to start a conversation with, talking about the game room, discussion of the LejiVerse, which diverts to…

(35:00 – 55:40) AN INCOHERENT SEGUE TO GENERAL VIDEO GAME TALK:  Yep, we spend this time talking about video games because we can. This went to talking about game systems, how Zeonic spent money on a Wii that is just and emulation device now, android games that lets you see the world, some youtube troll personality, Sonic talk, Shenmue discussion and probably some more. But when Zeonic went to mention Lisle Wilkerson…

(55:40 – 1:18:37) The failed attempt to finish a Convention Report: NashiCon: Both Zeonic and Jonn were able to get it together and complete the task before them, which is just more discussion of talking about people at the con and con life I guess you can say. This did talk about people with signs at the con, what Zeonic got at the con (which was talk of Cosmo Police Justy in America. Here is a link to ebay on what people want for the Justy VIZ print these days), 90’s Nickelodeon show talk, and more stuff I cannot really remember, which there was more to mention.

Links to stuff I mentioned in this episode (if you couldn’t make it out):

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:40:54)

Even though this is an “anime” podcast, we do care about what is coming out in the video game world at this years E3 event. What you should also know about this event is that Zeonic did not care one bit about this years E3, because when you are stuck at an airport in Chicago for a day coming back from an overseas trip; having an event about stuff that your gonna see in storesin a few months should be the least of one persons worries. But Josh, Jonn and our guest known as “Tee Why” are able to step in and fill in what Zeonic missed out in this years E3 because of  his jetlaggin layover from Japan. If anything, Zeonic is focused on the World Cup right now, because sports and stuff.

We pretty much stay on topic as Zeonic gets the post “inside” scoop of titles that he 90 precent doesn’t give a crap about. The gang talks about mostly what happened at the Nintendo panel/announcements, who won overall at the expo,  and talking about games and technology in general. We also deviate from our discussion  when it comes to the dangers of social media, picking fights with feminist on Twitter (actually no, this explains everything to you guys), thanking people who donated money to our cause (looking at you Trevor MCD. My bad on not mentioning your name in this episode, but we will give a shout out to you in the next episode for sure!), never getting around to talking about Zeonic trip to Japan, and all around talking about other things semi related.

AoY Podcast #28 – BanzaiCon 2013 Talkback


DSC_0936

Also known as: ” Man, whats dis? I can’t do nothin wit toys!”

In the state of South Carolina at this time of year, there are 3 main events that will take place: College Footbal season, hunting season, and Rednecks that are obsessed with both of those things at the same time. But, their is one element that got looked over, that deep in the heart of Gamecock territory, lies an event where people outside those main festivities come to make one of their own. That event is BanzaiCon, a once a year mass of nerds as they congregate and fill the halls of the Marriot hotel in downtown Colombia SC.  I had to tread on such event…. because I had panels and nerd stuff to show.

BanzaiCon was a fun way to kill a Saturday other than doing university homework and slipping into that mayhem of my academic responsibility. Even though I was there for one day, it was worth my time to showcase the panels I did for this event, which were Gundam-ology 101: Gundam for Beginners and the dreaded 18+ panel (that was an almost packed panel room) “What the Heck? Moments in Anime”. But like any good con adventure, this was also filled with my failed attempts to hit on cosplayers, meeting up with people and chillin, people who got their stuff jacked in the parking deck, car issues, getting to talk to VA’s, cats that ruin podcast recordings, and a whole lot more stuffed into this episode.

AoY Podcast #21 – Connecticon 2013 & Beware the Batman Talkback


Also known as: “CO-CO-CO-CO-CON PAMPLET!”

For this week, our very own VeemonJosh talks about about his experience at this years Connecticon. He goes on to spin his tales of checking out the Dr. Who panels, him cosplaying as Jotaro from Kamen Rider, meeting Jon St. John, and more. Then we move right along with the review of Beware the Batman with our “internet correspondent” DaftPunkFan.

And like the usual fare, there are the typical audio issues (mostly in the beginning… and whenever Daft talked), going off ramblings on animated series in general where we mention the current season of Venture Bros, general comics talk (mostly on the DC/Batman universe), picking on people who host online radio stations, my brief thoughts on the George Zimmerman case, and much much more.

I also wanted to point out, we have a Donate page on the right hand side of the website. If you wish to send something our way to help the podcast out, then you are more then welcome too. If you are curious what we plan on doing with the money you send us, I have that all listed under the donate page. Even if you don’t feel obligated to donate at this time, or your that broke, still continue to listen to us free of charge. That is one thing that will never change, and you can count on that!

AoY Podcast #17 – The Hangover Cast 2013 (Animazement & Phoenix Comic Con Talkback)


HANGOVER CAST copy

Also known as: “Hey, you guys need to take that to the bathroom!”
Or could be known as: “DUDE, WHERE’S MY CAR?!?!”

Memorial Day weekend is a time to remember the brave men and women in our military armed forces who fight for our country, so that we can enjoy this nation’s liberties to heart. That same liberty applies to anime fans and fellow nerds alike in America also, because Memorial Day is also a nation wide convention weekend. With so many cons happening at the same time, my co-host Jonn and I decided to take in the sights of near local conventions that were a drive away. Jonn went to the Phoenix Comic Con, and I took the journey to Animazement.

Animazement for me has, and always will be, an adventurous weekend in it of itself. The con every year let’s me experience and see things that I probably normally should and should not see on a daily basis. My adventures include meeting people, catching up with fellow podcasters, seeing the sights, bailing my ride out of the impound lot, getting into virtual fights, giving a little review on Urusei Yatsura: Only You and a hell of a lot more. You could say it’s like its own The Hangover movie… minus most of the crazy stuff that happens, to that extreme of a level. Jonn also tells his tale of running into bootleg anime vendors and a neglected VA guest. So, let me tell of the days of high adventure…

Here is the Animazement photo’s I took while at the con!!

AoY Podcast #16 – The Toonami Filler Podcast (with Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon)


Tenchi_Muyo_GXP

Also known as: “Who the hell would make an emulator outta that?”
or could be: “Zee Eye Gee, Zee… Slash ON!”

Ok, so there is still no Gundam: The Origin podcast episode just yet, but its coming soon ( I guess???). But what me and my co-host Jonn decided to add in more podcast filler with… us discussing Toonami shows. We’ve been keeping up with Toonami since it started last year, which leads us to watch most of what comes on TV at night (mostly through DVR recordings/using the old VCR). The one show that we have been keeping up with from beginning to end was Tenchi Muyo GXP.

Tenchi Muyo GXP is not a great show by any means, but I will go out on a limb to say it was the one show that had both of our attention to watch from beginning to end. I wanted to watch it because I (secretly) wanted to watch Tenchi anything on TV again, because its been over a decade since I’ve had that enjoyment. This also leads to us talking about the Tenchi series in general.

After that, I talk about my first time playing Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon (i.e, Micheal Biehn: The Video Game). This was my first introduction to the Far Cry series, and I gotta say, I was impressed.

But that’s not all! This episode was to originally end with those two things as our main topics, but since One Piece came back on TV for the first time in 5 years, we wanted to give our feedback on that also (especially for me being a first time viewer for the show). We also mention in this episode general anime talk, general Toonami talk, the failed Funimation One Piece livestream marathon, some audio issues, some video game talk, and much more.

AoY Podcast #15 – NashiCon 2013 Report


DSC_0291

Also known as: “RAVE LIFE MAN!”

or: “This podcast is totally indie weeaboo hipster.”

Although I gave a hint in our last post about Gundam: The Origin being the next possible episode, we don’t have that recording just yet. But, I was able to kill a Saturday by going to one of South Carolina’s local anime conventions, NashiCon. If you are reading this and you went to NashiCon this year, you probably had a good time, especially if it was your first convention. However, my thoughts are not entirely with you on that one, as I get to break down the things that transpired before me with other nerds.

I talked about the panels I went too (and the one I did that Saturday night), certain con-goers and their downfalls, chilling with friends, certain facebook people, video game talk, @Love_that_Goku talk and much more. I do wanna thank the staff for doing such a good job in not letting the convention center burn down to the ground, and other things included. Also, there is a weird audio problem where I was trying to transition into talking about the Digimon panel I went to, just FYI.

AoY Podcast #11 – OUR SUPER DUPER LEFTOVER BONUS PODCAST


Overstuffed-Fridge-With-Rotting-Food

Also known as: “Did he say ‘French Hookers’?”

Were taking a brief detour break from our Gundam month, because well… we don’t have Turn A Gundam ready yet, or even recorded. However, I’ve had these ‘leftovers’ of recording material for months now that I just didn’t know what to do with all of them. So, I decided to just COMBINE THEM ALL IN ONE EPISODE!! That’s right guys, I was really lazy and just put 4 previous, unedited, recordings into one podcast episode, because I think that might be the best course of action. I should warn, this is close to the 6 HOUR MARK!!! So, I don’t expect anyone to sit through this whole thing at once (god help you if you do.)

I am, however, nice enough to give time sections to what we talked about, so if you wanna skim to a certain point or you wanna know where we are at (which, we don’t even know where were at most of the time), look at the time on the episode and see if it corresponds with the time on whats written below.

Also, I will issue a challenge to anyone who can listen to this whole episode by the time our next episode comes out. Whoever is the first to comment on this post saying they did it, will get my thanks for wasting your time listening to this podcast. Or… I’ll think of something legit, I dunno. So, here we go:

0’00-1’33-ish: This was recorded sometime in October of 2012 with our last podcast. This is us discussing the Black Dynamite show/movie with our “internet correspondent” DaftPunkFan, which he also gives his tale at Another Anime Convention 2012. We also go off topic to talk about Disney shows, and me defending/discussing late 1990’s MTV cartoons. And Daft talks about Eden of the East for a bit also.

1’33’30-1’48’17: Me and Jonn decide to critique a podcast episode at Toon Radio Science. I think critiquing is the appropriate term. Recording back in January…something.

1’48’17-3’34’40: This was our CN Upfront discussion that was announced like late January/early February with Daft, Josh, Jonn and I. We also talked a bit about Hulk Hogan and Check it Out! on Adult Swim, along with other things.

3’34’40-5’49’47 :I sat this one out as Jonn, Josh and Daft talked about DC/Marvel properties such as Death of the Family, Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H, Ultimate Spider-Man, and Superman/Batman ApocalypseThey mention some guy who stalks people on AIM, as well as other things.

Site Disclaimer: I wanted to also point out, i’m working on a new podcast header, so I hope you’ll enjoy it. Ill keep this one up for now, but since i’m on spring break, ill have more time to tweak it a bit.
