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!

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!

So, its been 4 years since we titled our last episode as a “General Discussion” episode, so we figured it’s time for a sequel episode, longer and (un)better than ever! Of course, this is coming out after Hurricane Henry and during Irma, so it’s pretty fitting to release this episode in this manner. This time we are joined by guests Josh and Daft to talk about bad animated/live action movies like Batman and Harley Quinn and Death Note.
(0:00 – 1:19:30) Something of a Review: Batman and Harley Quinn / Death Note – We figured we can just bundle this into one segment with everyone crapping on the live action Americanized Death Note and Batman and Harley Quinn. This comes with discussing what “really” constitutes as rape, how Bruce Timm needs to come clean and make animated Batman porno films, the changes made in Death Note, talking about the Defenders show, Jonn moving back to Poseidon’s Revenge on Texas, and much more.
(1:19:30 – 02:31:24) Closing Remarks – Here the hosts dive right into Dustin banning from Toonzone after over 11 years of (dis)service, the symposium of a pure autistic post on Toonzone, Toonami speculations of upcoming shows in the future, anime on Kickstarter, Gundam dubbing talk and a bunch other nonsense.
This show has:

After a long time coming (that no one asked for), the podcast covers one of the
worst greatest blunders of Robotech history; Robotech: The Movie: The Untold Story. This time the podcast is greeted by Robotech fan Grant The Thief.
(0:00 – 1:23:40) The Untold Review: Robotech: The Movie (ie, Talk-About-Robotech-Than-This-Crappy-Film-For-Over-An-Hour-And-Twenty-Minutes) – No the headline isn’t lying to you guys, Dustin, Jonn and Grant really did talk about other Robotech stuff than this film. Think about it, if the hosts really “did” talk about Robotech: The Movie, this podcast would have been really short, and who wants that? Before ever going into trying to summarize the wikipedia article of this film, the hosts just talked Robotech from property rights, fandom and silly crossovers throughout Robotech lifetime. This also gets into discussion on Harmony Gold properties (like that Captain Harlock dub), who Carl Macek really is, how people forgot how to draw Robotech officially, how anime being shown on television has changed for the better and much more.
(1:23:40 – 02:21:55) Closing Remarks – Dustin and Jonn bring in the verdict for the Rise and Crash of KidsClickTV, Grant brings in how great Lupin the 3rd is, Dustin being a panelist at Electric City Comic Con, Cartoon Network shows, crazy Robotech podcasters, and how breaking up with your fiancee is hard to do. All this and more in this weeks episode.

So Animazement is this weekend, which is where Dustin is going to make his trek once again and needs to put something out this month. So, it’s time for our hosts to combine their Hamon powers into one, by letting this podcast take it’s rightful STAND in reviewing Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Battle Tendency.
(0:00 – 1:18:20) Review: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Battle Tendency – Since its been a few years since we reviewed Phantom Blood, this podcast is able to combine four entities into reviewing Jojo’s once more. But, in a twist of foreseen fate, our guest Daft was a Troll Pillar Man the whole time!! How will Dustin, Jonn and Josh combat this despicable fiend? By basically letting him do whatever he wants to the show.
In all seriousness, Jojo’s ended on Toonami, so the four hosts came together to talk about it. Actually, it was mostly a critique off a Toonzone thread of some mod bashing the show, so there was a lot to say on that. There is also discussions on Chris Chan mummified shirt being discovered, Nazisploitation films, Josh and his experiences with anime clubs, how Mega 64 paid homage to our podcast, 4D theme park rides, and how Disneyland employees handle guests suicide.
(1:18:20 – 1:48:00) Closing Remarks – This gets the hosts talking about if our world will be going to World War 3 again, Jonn buying the new Zelda game, SNES Mini discussion, the History of Buy-Rite Video Games, anime releases coming out soon like Record of Lodoss War and titles from Discotek, and much more.

(0:00 – 1:05:08) Review: Power Rangers – Dustin and Jonn and guests Cloud and Daft join together to dawn our power suits and get ready to take on this movie full force with our MegaZords all in the name of friendship! Well, not really, but it did warrant a good discussion (specially when Daft showed up 30 minutes later). Power Rangers was a film Daft hated to love, and Dustin saw it as a movie he loved to hate. There are spoilers afoot in breaking down scenes that were just stupid to begin with, as well as how twitter won’t shut up about it being this pro-ELGEBETE diverse
crap fest. This warrants other Haim Saban discussions and other stuff, including Dustin trying to get away from a devoted fan rambling off his Power Rangers love to him at a Hot Topic.
(1:05:08 – 1:06:18) Promo: Just slipping in a quick Anime Cart and RightStuf! promo for you guys to drop all your dough on their websites. (Happening RIGHT NOW, you can get a FREE Naruto Headband with any purchase from animecart.com. Even though in a previous episode I stated about dumb teens going there to get headbands, I just got one, because its FREE! so that makes me feel a little better about getting one to act like a “highly functioning autistic ‘narutard'”, and you should too. Use our discount, it does work! – Dustin)
(1:06:18 – 1:55:15) Review: Ghost in the Shell – Just as Daft was more forgiving of Power Rangers, Dustin was even more so with Ghost in the Shell, despite the twitter anti-whitewashing hate machine taking credit that they movie failed. Its been over a year since we talked about Ghost in the Shell, and if you want our 1995 review of that, it can be found in this giant link in this text. Although not a perfect film, Dustin explains his reason why this film shouldn’t have gotten the specific negative attention it got when they’re other factors wrong with the movie, but it was mostly complaining about the haters of this film online. It’s more got to Dustin trying to defend the film for the things it did right, which was more than what the internet was going to give it credit for. Also, mics are being thrown down in anger, just saying. Dustin also wrote an article for The Odyssey about this film, so give that a read.
(1:55:15 – 2:18:35) Closing Remarks: There is still more discussion on haters and the internet, as well Cloud talking a little about Anime Boston, Dustin hating that UNC won the NCAA tourney, Ghost from TCR going sober, The People v. Jontron, are pets racists?, and finding your brothers anime items in storage to claim as your own. All this and much more in this weeks episode. Also fair warning, Dustin mic is super loud for some reason, but that will be fixed next episode.

Basically, this episode is a general discussion, that was supposed to be about Sausage Party, but it ain’t all there guys. But, eff it, let’s just roll with what we got.
(0:00 – 1:28:00) The Timbox AuDIOtism Hour – After throwing in a promo at the beginning to promote AnimeCart.com, Dustin, Jonn and Daft talk about whatever they wanna talk about, which is mostly just dumb Slack chatroom non-drama, Timbox 123 and his many FULL LENGTH, ANIMATED, ONE MILLION PART FILM legacy adventures, Dustin sings THE GREATEST SONG IN THE WORLD, and Justice League Dark (not really, but Daft says I should put that in – Dustin).
(1:28:00 – 2:06:15) SAUSAGE FEST-PARTY ’17!! – The most we talked about this terrible movie was us talking about the lowdown of how the animation studio who worked on it got screwed over, and then talked about adult Ralph Bakshi cartoons.
(2:06:15 – 2:34:36) Closing Remarks: Discussions include The New England JCPenny comic con, Dustin NCAA Tourny Bracket is toasted (aka screw off UNC for winning it once again!), local K Marts out of business and more.

What better way to end out 2016 but to travel back long ago, in a galaxy far far away. This time Dustin and Jonn are joined by previous guests Daft and Vekou to talk about Star Wars: Rogue One.
(0:00 – 1:07:30) Review – Star Wars: Rogue One Review – The council of nerds have all gathered to talk about the recent Star Wars film, which seems to be divided in the fandom of who likes and dislikes this movie. All hosts mention the movies strengths and weaknesses, as well as talk about other Star Wars material. This of course gets us talking about story lines in video games, nerd conversations on Clerks movie levels, and much more.
(1:07:30 – 3:02:44) Post-Christmas Holiday Closing Remarks – A lot has happened over the past month, and the hosts have something to say about it. Aside from talking about what we all got for Christmas, we give RIP shout outs to Alan Thicke, Carrie Fisher and George Michael passings. We also mention convention talk from Daft’s North East Comic Con review and seeing the Hanna Barbera exhibit, where as Dustin went to experience what happens when a high school puts together a comic con in the middle of nowhere. There is also discussion of a book about Tommy Wiseau, talk of terrible and cool animation industry people, Dustin desire to meet Jerry Beck and Fred Patton, abandoned Flinstone parks, the recent ramblings of Peter Fay, who to ban from our chat, and much more.

LOOKS LIKE WE MADE IT!! 100 episodes, 100 reviews, 100 crappy stories of closing remarks, and more than 100 followers to our site! Well, we decided to do our special review for this episode on Night on the Galatic Railroad as request from Jeff from the Daily Anime Podcast.
(0:00 – 48:00) Review: Night on the Galactic Railroad – So for our special 100th episode, Jeff has graced our presence to taking a ride on the galactic railway to your imagination.. maybe. Galactic Railroad may also be the sleep aid to your insomnia, or your children, which can work with Odin: Photon Space Sailor Starlight. This is an anime that means a lot to Jeff, which Dustin can see some of that in the film. We also dive into off topic (and semi-0n-topic) items such as how we got banned from Twitch.tv for streaming anime/movies, religious and Christian beliefs, how current anime fans get anime compared to the days or finding them at rental stores, and a little more added in. Also to note, Dustin did zero editing to this episode, because screw it, were doing it live!
(48:00 – 1:38:50) Closing Remarks: Oh boy, so much has happened since Jonn and Dustin sat down in front of the mics, and boy is their tales to tell. Everyone has their view on how the election is going, even our non-fellow capitalist Ghost from TCR. On the brighter side, love_that_goku is back and Jonn recants the current events in his life, even how LTG is trying to make his own path from Ecuador to Beirut. We spend too much time on a former ToonZone member and his sexual endeavors, and of course talking about whatever else. All this and much more in our grand 100th episode, and hope for another 100 more!!

So before Dustin heads off to Animazement for another year, he has decided to put out a bonus episode where he brings on Nick from The Arcade Hunters to specifically talk about the arcade culture behind the Initial D Arcade Stage game. This of course doesn’t really happen till about 45 or so minutes into the recording, since the beginning was full of anime to arcade games and vice versa talk. They also mention subjects like Sega in general, the arcade culture between Japan and America, anime discussions, bad arcade anime, how Dustin and Nick got into Initial D, Toys R Us retail talk and so much more.

Well, convention season has once again started up, and your hosts are taking their journeys to cons opposite of the Mason Dixon line. Dustin decided to avoid the usual NashiCon this year to go with its closer and hands down “most impressive anime con” during the same weekend in April as Nashi, and that was the South Carolina Comic Con. We also have our returning co-host Daft and Cloud to talk about their time at Anime Boston.
(0:00 – 1:04:32) Con Report A: South Carolina Comic Con – But wait, why is a comic con considered the best anime con? Well there’s a simple answer, its because Dustin has seen the light that comic cons happen to cater to his anime needs than a local anime con cannot do. After finding a Dancouga, Iczer 1 and some other figures at the local comic con, these seem to be the holy grail of items that appeal to the old anime fans at heart than seeing the same anime bullcrap merch at these so called “anime conventions” that Dustin keeps going to over and over every year. Also, NashiCon didn’t have a schedule to meet Tony Oliver, so no way our podcast con traveler was gonna risk driving further out of his way for no solid autograph return. This was no lone journey, as Dustin was accompanied by Dori on the way to the con, so that made it even more fun.
In terms of Closing Remarks, Jonn and Dustin talked about how they put the hammer down on whiny cosplayers on the Anime Boston forum, which lead to some serious Donald Trump-like troll hijinks to burn some bridges with a con that maybe one day the hosts might go to. The legacy of ZeekdaPhreek shall live on. We also mention how Dustin got his own Initial D Arcade Stage cabinet, the return of Chris Chan and TCR Ghost, and much more.
(1:04:32 – 1:06:47) Podcast Promo’s – AWO seems to be getting over their tormented Initial D review, with their latest one being about Knights of Sidonia. The Daily Anime Podcast might have been quiet for…. a good while, still check them out. Come’on Jeff, WHERE DID YA GO? On the upside, Dave and Joel come out of their per-month retirement to bring you more Jojo’s, cuz that’s what the kids wanna hear.
(1:06:47 – 3:25:56) Con Report B: Anime Boston – This is clearly the longer part of this podcast, which makes up for the first part in lacking content. Speaking of hijinks, Daft decides to go to the con as currently-now-front runner Donald Trump to make sure Anime Boston is made great again. This also goes into detail on how Cloud’s Precure panel went, Daft going to panels like Bad Anime Bad and playing Evangelion pachinko machines, where to find food and how to get drunk the Daft way, the issue with the long lines at the con, dissing on Geek Nights, Toonami and cartoons talk and much more.
This show has:
Dustin stopped by on FightBait! Whiskey Thursday recently to basically, sit around and listen to the host talk about Anime Detour con, Dr. Who people who die at cons, and beer talk at the end. Actually, Dustin didn’t say much in this episode, but filled in bits when he had an open moment. The audio from Dustin was pretty crappy since he called on his phone, so maybe next time he will use Skype to call in.

Here is part two of our Toonzone AIM chat history, without any edits.. This is kind of a brief description on what you might find in this episode, which is still more talk about people we know online and more dumb stories to boot. We even mention how we killed off Notaku Diaries long ago. If you want to know what podcast we had Peter Fay on, it was this Peter Fay Episode from the last podcast Jonn and Dustin did before the AoY Podcast (plus, we also found some Peter Fay Internet 1.0 stuff on an old Gargoyles fansites). Next episode will consist of real content, which will cover comic and anime cons that happened recently, so stay tuned.

So, after saying this for over a year at this point off and on, the hosts of this podcast decided to give their backstory on how they all know each other and meet on the AOL Instant Messaging service, which the group chat function ceased on March 15th, 2016.
We are also going to add, that this and the part 2 that will come up, are completely unedited. Nothing has been censored, condensed, or rearranged to distort THE TRUTH of people that we are going to say right now do not exist… which isn’t true. The only thing done to this episode is to increase volume levels in the recording so you can hear what we have to say, that’s it.
To make a long story short, this is 2 hours of Dustin, Jonn, Daft, Josh (when his Skype was working) and Vekou talking about how we all meet online. For Dustin and Vekou, this goes back to the early 2000’s under pre-One Piece Podcast co-host Zach Nathenson before he ever watched that show and ran a small forum called Adult Swim Headquarters, which lead to Dustin joining Toonzone.net. Jonn, Josh, and Daft recollect how they got to Toonzone as well, and how all of us put up with our youthful bullcrap over a decade ago. We ramble off topics on Cartoon Network shows, comic book talk, Mac the Night commercials, and “insider baseball” for forum and chat room drama that no one needs to know that we still tell you listeners all about. If anything, at best you can get a few good laughs from it and say how horrible people we all are. It’s a fair assessment, and we can understand. See you for part 2 next time… hopefully with less Moon Man…

You can consider this an excuse to cover for this years Valentines Day special, which well just take the year off reading comments this go around. We decide to resurrect the four horsemen of the pod-calypse, with returning guest Daft and our resident ex-Gundam/Evangelion fanboy Vekou, into reviewing Neon Genesis Evangelion 3.33: You Can (Not) Redo.
(0:00 – 52:15) A Long Time Coming Review: Evangelion 3.33 – It has been almost 5 years since the four of us sat down and talked about Evangelion 2.22 in the days when were were a bunch of Kool Kids in our little podcast Klub. Now fate has finally brought us together to talk about this movie IN THE MIGHTY ELTINGVILLE CLUB MANNER! Despite who may listen to this podcast, hardcore Evangelion fan or not, this review came the day after Dustin bought his bluray copy from Best Buy, and his thoughts and emotions on this movie are rather raw. This is all in the perspective in how we all first saw this film, which you may or may not agree with our opinions on that, and that’s fine. We don’t dive into great detail in the film, but we do try and clarify a few things the best we can. Also included in our discussion is how Dustin let his girlfriend see this film for the first time WITHOUT any prior knowledge to Evangelion, the Tony Takezaki Evangelion manga, Evangelion in general, Daft and his obsession with getting an Eva Unit 01 head, 4D Evangelion, and what the hell happened to Gainax?
(52:15 – 1:38:34) THE ELTINGVILLE CLUB STYLE CLOSING REMARKS OF YOUR DOOM!! – We never “officially” announced we were in closing remarks, because with Daft and Vekou being part of the recording, Jonn and Dustin just kinda fibbed it and went along with the off topic ramblings. Somewhere along the line, we stopped talking about Evangelion, and started to talk about; the documentary of Mr. Hands, Wings of Honneamise sequel, how Dustin knows crappy hentai titles, Miyazaki boxset w/ Studio Ghibli talk, the new Lupin show (PRONOUNCED “LEU-PAWN” NOT “LEU-PIN,” GET IT RIGHT!), The Funimation/Echolight Rick Santorum conspiracy, Power Rangers fan film, the Ballet of Stewie17, Chris Chan gets interviewed, RIP to Reese White and Joe Alaskey, how we were all dead wrong on the Carolina Panthers winning the Super Bowl (except Vekou), teens who buy overpriced anime crap and more.
If you want to read Dustin write-up about Evangelion 3.33 the morning after, here is his rambling at his new “blog-he-had-to-make-for-school-again” blog over at Kanazawa MechaLords.

Hey, remember when we used to do anime reviews? Yea, the gang vaguely remembers doing them also. But hey, were back on the anime beat, and this time we start to cover those Indiegogo perks we promised at the early part of the year. This time we got a request from Sean Ryan from the Alpha Counter podcast to issue us the most rockin anime out there, The Legend of Black Heaven.
Again, we don’t need no time codes for this episode, since it was Zeonic and Sean sitting in the middle of a back ally hallway of the Marriott late Saturday night during Animazement. This is also where frequent con goers and hotel staff kept coming by us during the recording, which was near the most desired restroom in the entire hotel mind you, so you’ll hear zingers of that at the end of the episode. The Legend of Black Heaven is an anime Zeonic has always heard good things about over the years, and finally had the chance to watch and thoroughly enjoy this OVA. Even though Black Heaven is more relatable to people reaching their Logan’s Run age expiration date and beyond, anyone can pick up this title and enjoy it, wither you are musically inclined or not. This would also be this podcast second review of anime based off music, since our first one was about To-Y 2 years ago. Of course, you can expect some “sidebar” discussions about anime Terry Crews, talking about music in general, how american football is really “handegg,” Masters of the Universe movie synopsis, and Zeonic gets the hiccups. All this and much more in this this weeks episode…
This show has:
Dunno why Zeonic first thought of anime Terry Crews was in Friday After Next, but that is how his pimp mind works sometimes…
And you wonder why the Japanese have a hard time understanding Americans…
In general, AMV’s are the worst way to promote a show to make someone think it’s going to be great. However, this AMV is an exception, just go see Black Heaven already.

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.

So, this is a whole podcast dedicated to us talking about SuperFight! The Anime Deck. Oh yea, happy ‘murika day too, almost forgot about that…

After a few coin tosses and elements of losing clothing at Anime Expo within the game, both contestants came out having a good time, all the while talking about other anime fans out there.

In this episode, the podcast comes together on blockbuster movie sized proportions, where we are able to get us a full house “Avengers Assemble” style gang together to talk about not only one show out of this current anime season, but also to discuss the latest Avengers film. Even though disastrous internet quality tries to foil our review plans, we still are able to suit up with returning guest Daft”PunkFan”37 and VeemonJosh. Listen as we all dawn our podcast alter ego’s to discuss Kyokai no Rinne and Avengers: Age of Ultron.
(0:00 – 30:08) Review – Kyokai no Rinne: This was an anime that came under Zeonic radar a few weeks ago as he was working on his Mamoru Oshii presentation for his Art History class, because when one browses Wikipedia for Rumiko Takahashi and sees that her recent manga became an anime, one is inclined to check into it. As of this review, only Jonn and Zeonic saw the first few episodes, but it runs pretty much like a typical Takahashi show, which wasn’t all that bad really. This also leads into discussion on a leaked pilot for a Clerks TV series, how Sentai Filmworks obtained Rinne, and Takahashi’s work in general.
(30:08 – 32:01) Podcast Promo’s: Alpha Counter just released their own review of Avengers: Age of Ultron recently, and Dave and Joel continue to heat up the mics some more involving Jojo’s and other stuff. Speaking of Avengers…
(32:01 – 1:23:00) Non-Anime Review – Avengers: Age of Ultron: We’re definitely nerds over comic book movies every year, only because Marvel keeps making the films that draw in the biggest crowds. This year we get another Avengers movie, and we have our own personal gripes and viewpoints on the film. This gets us into discussing SJW style twitter comments by JesuOtaku, a random encounter with past guest ChibiGoku (which doesn’t last long), general comic book talk, Totally Spies reference, the true target demographic for comic book super heroes shows and toys, and our thoughts on the Batman vs Superman trailer. All this and a whole lot more in this episode. Stay tuned for part “b”…
OP2 – Avengers… ASSEMBLE!

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).
(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.

This review was a long time coming, even before Jonn and Zeonic started this podcast. This is also the first movie review of the year, which does tie into an anime by the same name, so were not that off our beat guys!! Of course the gang can’t do this film review alone, and had to reach out to Sean Ryan from the Alpha Counter podcast to form our own beatbox gang as we journeyed our way through the L.A. ghetto with the 1991 film, The Guyver.
(0:00 – 52:25) Animoovie Review: The Guyver: This film comes from a time in the 1990’s when film companies got licenses (or didn’t more than likely) to anime titles in order to adapt them into live action format with the shoe-string budgets they had to work with. The results varied (mostly poor), but this film seemed to be that first pioneer from manga to the film reel in America. With Zeonic, Jonn and Sean forming our hip hop gang, we trek through the film encountering rapping monsters, corrupt CEO’s, making things work by bashing your head onto them, taking 8 hours to get lunch, how NOT to fight, and Luke Skywalker working for the G Man. We do our best to stay on topic, but run into trouble when it comes to certain off topic agendas.
(52:25 – 1:06:42) Closing Remarks: There was nothing short about wrapping up our podcast, not when we discuss the latest news about Chris Chan Guerrilla War against Sega, Sean trip to Orlando, and Zeonic calling out Regan.
(1:06:42 – 1:15:41) Bonus Material: This was even more off-topic stuff that Zeonic just left at the end for a stinger, which included people who can’t use headphones, and finding out what films Paul Chapman has reviewed. All this and more in this weeks episode.

Well, we’re in the year of the flying hoverboards, The 3rd Impact and probably other great futuristic movie predictions that escape Zeonic at the moment. However, our anniversary special is gonna be belated for a while, so sorry to tell you guys that. However, we don’t expect it to be as belated as this episode content, which has been collecting dust in our podcast vault for roughly the past 6 MONTHS!! So without further ado, you get to hear a full house of us talk about the 2014 Summer Anime Season!!!
(0:00 – 13:04) Pre-Introduction Segment: Zeonic did his best to edit this episode into a functional experience, but he could only put in so much work before cutting his losses and just rolling with it. Our full house includes the likes of Chibi Goku, Daft and Josh discussing subjects like the Astro Boy theater production, Zeonic talking about the Insufficient Direction anime/manga, our pre-thoughts on Gundam G Recongista, skype issues, the failed Harmony Gold kickstarter and more before we actually get to FINALLY introducing ourselves 13 minutes later.
(13:04 – 1:22:16) Summer 2014 Anime Review Part A: We split our segments up into two parts, which Part A will consist of our first impressions with Sailor Moon Crystal, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, Sword Art Online 2 and Space Dandy Season 2. We also dive into works by Kevin Smith, MyAnimeList issues, hating on twitter people, and TOTALLY FAILING at doing podcast introductions, which explains why we never do them to begin with.
(1:22:16 – 1:24:34) Podcast Promo’s: Speaking of Jojo’s, we got the two men who’s karate is faster then anything you will ever see, because Dave and Joel have found their own way to hone and master such an art of martials. We give shout outs to Alpha Counter, as they continue to make episodes that no longer pertain to that #GamerGate fiasco. Also included is Anime World Order, who recently did a trivia episode to stump Paul “White Daryl” Chapman’s with useless anime trivia to make regular Daryl Surat be an even bigger
jerkoff anime fan.
(1:24:34 – 2:27:42) Summer 2014 Anime Review Part B: This is essentially a Daft/Jonn segment of them talking about all the time wasted watching anime shows they thought were terrible, which included Terror in Resonance, Aldnoah Zero, Tokyo Ghoul, Akame ga Kill, Bakumatsu Rock and Rail Wars! This of course contains off topic commentary about the DashCon/bad MLP cons, Twitter feminist vs. Zeonic, the current state of anime cons, and much more.
(2:27:42 – 2:47:01) Bonus Content!!: This was content that would have made our off-topic talks even more off-topic, with pre-pre-review discussions about the GREATEST SKYPE CRASH OF THEM ALL!, Anime Expo/Jojo’s dub talk, Toonzone rants, past podcast drama, Marvel anime shows, and more.
