The day has finally come, where we make our 50th Podcast episode. And what better way than to do a recorded interview with a video game voice actress like Lisle Wilkerson. You wanna know something else, this was recorded 3 months ago at the end of May, and we still have a back log of recordings. At least it shows that we will not run out of content anytime soon…
(0:00 – 59:06) Interview: Lisle Wilkerson – We are humbly joined by the voice talent behind the recent voices of Christie Monteiro and Sarah Bryant in the most recent games of Tekken and Virtua Fighter (oh yea, don’t forget about Shenmue 2 now). Of course, to anyone who plays those games, it’s hard to focus on the voice behind the 3D model that is countering your attack for the tenth time in a ranked match (remember Joy in Shenmue 2? Yea, DON’T FORGET ABOUT SHENMUE 2). We of course ask Ms. Wilkerson questions on how she was able to get her foot into the door of video game voice acting, what is the voice acting world like currently, what it was like growing up in Japan, working with Bill Murray in Lost in Translation, chatting about her works in video games (like Crazy Taxi and OF COURSE SHENMUE 2!!), being in fixed boxing matches, the current life of Calf., her upcoming (really past) con schedule for this year, and old school anime talk. All this and more in this episode…

AoY Podcast #43 – Gundam Month The Fourth: Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Ep 7: “Over the Rainbow” Review

Well, this is going to conclude our Gundam Month segment for quite a while, until there is new Gundam to come out to talk about. After over three years of podcast’s between different names and people, we are here to finally finish out our Gundam Month segments; as we dive into the newtype rainbow of Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Episode 7: Over the Rainbow.
Gundam Unicorn 7 was able to answer some questions to a lot of Gundam fans as to “kinda” tell what happens after Char’s Counterattack, as we discuss the events and story behind this final OVA spanning over 4 years now. You can expect to find giant mobile armors with TONS AND TONS OF GUNS EVERYWHERE, newtype acid trips, newtype ghosts, colony lasers, and how newtypes were destined to have political positions. We were able to have Andy from the Daily Anime Podcast join us to talk about this OVA, which got us to talk about the new Godzilla movie in the beginning of this recording, angry autistic’s on tumblr, autistic’s against Funimation getting Gundam, catching Andy up on our favorite LolCow, us bro’s having bro crushes on Suichi Ikeda, (I ment to say George Washington not Thomas Jefferson for those history people out there, my bad), how smoking is an issue in Universal Century (the quote is found somewhere on this page but I’ll post the quote after this paragraph), bad writers and more general Gundam talk plus more than that.
Here is the quote Jonn used in his closing remarks: “The poison called tobacco, which was once almost extinct in the old ages, still lingered in the days of Universal Century 0096. This was the result of tobacco quality improving as a result of the space age, like the reduction of tar to reduce the negative effects on the human body and the intricate machines, and the development of chemicals that combust at low temperatures in tobacco, but most people felt that the biggest reason for the revival of tobacco was the One Year War.”

If there is one part of being a human being we are all guilty of is the fact that we accumulate items in our lives that will one day be forgotten about, unless it somehow ends up in a museum. We also like to define accumulation with a less offensive term we like to call “collecting.” Here at the AoY podcast, we are completely guilty in that area, and heck, even wanna share our stories on how we got the things we have obtained over the years. And to join us in our audio journey is up and coming podcaster Dawn of The Anime Nostalgia Podcast, as we embark our journey through the cluttered shelves of anime nostalgia throughout our lives as anime fans.
And like the usual fare, we also go off topic on things like why cats are crazy, VIC MIGNOGANOAAAH, Xbone gets an orgasm and works, Sailor Moon talk, autograph stories, talk about our video games, AUDIO ISSUES (which my part of talking about Haruhiko Mikimoto was cut out, but that story was on last years Animazement review,) Tenchi Talk, Gundam talk and a ton more gurl-ish gossip to come.
Oh yea, on a darker note, we got us a tumblr account now. Man… this site is reeeeeeeally eff’d up, I mean really.

GUYS WE MADE IT!!!! With the start of 2014, we are still together, have not changed the name, and have to much to review for you that will eventually come out!! I say unedited on the title because… I am not gonna worry about editing a thing on here. So, whatever audio issues you hear in this episode, is the result of me not caring how it sounds for the first time in a long while, only because I have done recordings/edits for other podcast that will soon come out after this, so deal with it. Any who, we kick off the new year by having our later Christmas and 1 Year Anniversary special by talking about what we got for Christmas, movie talk and all around general discussion. We also have our bro Andy from the Daily Anime Podcast join in on the fun.
We kick off the episode where we discuss the yule tide cheer we received this past Christmas, which was mostly video games and anime related stuff. Also, we talk about movies that we have seen in the past few months. We continue the trend to talk about the latest Hobbit 2 movie that came out, and how Disney was able to make our hearts Frozen. I also mention the films I’ve seen in the past few months such as Homefront, Thor 2, Enders Game, Escape Plan, Machete Kills and Man of Steel. Of course, we mention other films like The Man with the Iron Fists, Hobo With a Shotgun and probably a few others (I forgot to mention that I saw The Secret Life of Walter Mitty also, good film).
This also gets us into talking about Zeonic dating life, Vic FiletMignonanona, other podcasters out there (well, mostly us trying to figure out the science behind Anime World Order), the enigmatic psyche of one Daryl Surat, general anime talk this past year, white people trying to be black for black people, and a whole lot of other crap mixed in there.

Jonn and I were guest stars on The Nine Hells of Anime Podcast to talk about our favorite Yoshiaki Kawajiri anime OVA, Goku: Midnight Eye. This is mine and Jonn’s second attempt at reviewing this anime, because we love it that freaking much. I stated to Fino that we gotta come back if they were to ever review Crying Freeman, because damn… that is another anime I know Jonn and I will talk extensively about in detail.

Every year, nerds from all over the globe focus in on one particular spot in California, where the mightiest of game publishers and developers gather to showcase video games that we the consumer will purchase in the next coming months. This years E3 was of course a bit different, as we see Microsoft goofing up (and standing by it) while Sony was made to be the hero of the whole darn show.
We cover what we remember of the press conferences by Microsoft, Sony, EA, Ubisoft, and talk about the things Nintendo did to make the fans even happier. This is of course filled with other minor side discussions like how our certain guest like to be on the phone and podcast at the same time, Jeff and his love of Bungie’s Marathon games, the potential target audience for the next Pokemon games, our views on the Xbone vs PS4, our opinions on the whole DRM/used games debate, our thoughts on announced games and much much more.

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…

This is going to conclude our Gundam Month segment. Since we have not only covered the essential 90’s AU Gundam shows, but we decide to review the latest Gundam Unicorn OVA. This was recorded actually before the rest of our other Gundam recordings kinda, since what we discussed in this episode was still fresh in our heads. And that was all good until we got sidetracked…like, A LOT!
Regardless of a few things we spoiled about this latest OVA, we also went off topic on things such as general Gundam/Anime talk, doing some catching up with our special guest Shin Von Vekou (of our old Kool Kids Klub podcast days), mention the Colorado guy who found Osama Bin Laden, Koichi Ohata ranting on Tomino, stupid anime fan bickering, more Love_that_Goku tweets, the death of Chieko Honda, Soulja Boy music, and I give a brief talk on the latest Tomb Raider game.
Also, Jeff and Andy from the Daily Anime Podcast come in to help us find Laplace’s box.
Disclaimer: If anyone is reading this, I am going to be at Nashicon this Saturday in Colombia SC. I will be doing a panel called “What the Damn? Moments in Anime” which starts at 10pm that night. But, I doubt anyone reading this lives in SC, or even going to that con, which might be a good thing. But whatever, just letting you know, because you can expect a podcast review about it sometime.

For this week in our Gundam Month, we are taken back to a time where mobile suits and bi-planes cannot co-exist, and that is in the universe of all Gundam universes, Turn A Gundam. Myself and my co-hosts saw (or should I say CHEATED into watching) the compilation movies, which did not do this series justice for us. But, with the help of Jeff from the Daily Anime Podcast as our guest host, he was able to shed some light on some of the issues between the series and the movies. And, like usual fashion, there are Spoilers to this show, but we just discussed the stuff that mattered (ie, what we couldn’t make sense of).
We also spend a moment going off topic to talk about Gundam: The Origin, people on the internet, Charlton Heston movies and general anime/Mysterious Girlfriend X talk. I also wanna mention, Gundam Breaker Beta is out on the Japanese PSN, which is the soul successor game (maybe?) to Gunpla Builders. Plus, screw the NCAA tournament, because NC State got knocked out the first round.

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 Apocalypse. They 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.

Mission… Accepted! The Gundam 90’s era isn’t over for us yet, and we have reached the halfway point where we dive into a world of TOTAL PACIFISM!! I’m talking about that Mobile Report Gundam Wing. Gundam Wing seems to be the Gundam show that introduced today’s American anime fans into Gundam (I myself included.) Some of them will die by this series as being the best thing they have ever seen. Well, we happen to say some choice words about this show, and sorta SPOIL it as well (again, from what we can best remember). We also use those choice words on the sequel Endless Waltz, and briefly mention the side manga’s off this show before ending things.
I should note, Andy and Jeff from the Daily Anime Podcast made all the episode screw-ups possible (which made it not a boring podcast episode).
Next time, we will make a brief Turn Around into another Gundam show.

Valentine’s Day Single Awareness Day special, we bring on Geoffrey Tebbetts to discuss his contributing blog, Golden Ani. The blog is dedicated to the past 50 years of Japanese Animation, with written reviews by other anime bloggers/big kahunas out there. After a few questions to that, we get to our main topic, our “anime first loves,” where we talk about what anime’s we first fell in love with that really got us into anime. Geoffrey talks about Maison Ikkoku, my co-host Jonn and Josh talk about the glory days of Toonami programming shows that made them anime fans, and I bring up my personal favorite OVA “first love,” Sol Bianca. Oh, and me and Jonn talk about an “en espanol” station, Locomotion.

Were back again with more Gainax show goodness. This time, we dedicate a WHOLE EPISODE to Neon Genesis Evangelion. Not only do we geek out over Eva in general, but we have on the biggest of the Evageeks out there, Aaron Clark. We pretty much spend time on breaking down Eva and all of its meanings to us, because we assume people listening to this podcast have seen this series and are confused as hell about it. We go all over the map from merchandising, video games and everything else in between. We also spend a moment talking about Nadia, which we will cover more in the next segment (pretty sure).

We finally decide to talk about anime on a podcast about anime, finally. We kick things off with us talking about major Gainax shows/movies/OVA’s that you guys should really check out if your the cool, old school, OTAKU ANIMOO FANS like us. We start off this segment talking about Wings of Honneamise, Otaku No Video and Aim for the Top! Gunbuster/Diebuster. We really didn’t spoil a lot on these shows, so this gives you listeners a good chance to see what we are talking about without knowing too much. Next time, we will continue with more Gainax shows, so see you then. Oh, and congrats Texas for getting snow…jerks.

Disclaimer: Since this is our first episode of our new podcast, I guess I can give a brief intro. Long story short, we came from another podcast to do this one. Our “mission statement” for now is reviewing old anime (from like 2000 and before or something, maybe). But, we will also talk about other things since we don’t limit our nerd interest to just anime. So expect movie reviews, video game reviews, critiquing people on the internet, comic book talk and really whatever. We also set up on a bi-weekly release, or just the 2nd and 4th weeks in a month, or that is what we are shooting for. So, enjoy our first episode!!!
