Better late than never right, even when your almost 5 months from when you released your last episode. Well were back with a nearly stacked deck of a podcast because we just want to release out stuff like a Tankobon no one asked for. Here is another 3-in-1 recording with our official review of Netflix Cowboy Bebop, The Batman and smooshed into the middle is a closing remarks segment of news that happened long ago that no one cares about it now, but here it is!

(0:00 – 1:26:21) Part I: Cowboy Bebop (Netflix) Review – Back in late February we recorded our episode about this Netflix series after Jonn had a chance to sit down and watching, and fully admits that Dustin was correct in how great of a show it was, issues and all. Of course, another big worldwide event happened that we had to talk about before going into Bebop, and that is the Russia v. Ukraine War/Conflict/Skirmish/whatever historians are going label this in about 50 years. We give our initial thoughts on what was coming out through the media and other news sources at the time for about 37 or so minutes before we just said “We’ll were not doing much to solve this, let’s just talk about Bebop.” Also included is Dustin talking about how he can’t figure out a 3D printer, old Cartoon Network program blocks, why RightStuf is releasing Gundam Seed so freggin high, and much more!

 

(1:26:21 – 3:03:07) Part II: The jammed packed gooey-ooey Closing Remarks Special – We were about to do it, we were gonna talk about Batman… and then we didn’t. Instead of caped crusader talk, its filled with Ruskie crusader talk of the Ukraine war one month later (and the people on the ground reporting on it NSFW), RIP Gilbert Gottfried, The Slap Heard Around The World, Dustin being on The Dad’s Anime Stashe Podcast Trivia Contest (and winning it hands down), DeSantos vs. Disney Corp, Dustin being a guest to talk about AMV’s, the destruction of food processing places in America, Global and American politics, The legacy of Toonman, vtuber interviews Van-Pires actor, and much more!

 

(3:03:07 – 4:45:27) Part III: The Batusi of high class Cinema – We Did It, much much later than we wanted too, but its done. We talk about The Batman. Daft joins in as our special returning guest to give his thoughts on the film, and more insight on the Rise and Fall of Toonman. This also includes comic book store talk, political comics in the 2000’s, History of Batman comics, The Fast and Furious movie franchise, past podcasts, Sports Talk with Daft and Dustin on the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, Dustin recounts the Halo TV series, creepy twitter users and a whole lot more!

With 2021 bringing back larger conventions again, Dustin and Jonn talk about their experiences with Anime Weekend Atlanta and Phoenix Toy Con.

(0:00 – 1:08:28) Convention Reports 2021: Jonn hits the ground running with what he did at Phoenix Toy Con the same time Dustin was at Anime Weekend Atlanta. While Jonn was getting great stuff like Bloodstained on the Nintendo Switch and other great comic goodies, Dustin was getting his moment in the spotlight with a grand AMV win at the VAT Exposition contest along with an award at Youmacon AMV Contest all at the same time. Both get into topics about Marvel films, Covid guidelines between the two conventions, things we bought and #LetsGoBrandon. Dustin goes extensively on how his Initial D and B.A.D. panels went, navigating the horrendous Atlanta 285 construction/World Series traffic, meeting industry peeps like Carl Horn, picking up import games of such anime series at random, sleeping at different places with different peoples cats, reading off crappy Evangelion poetry, playing Initial D Zero in the arcade, seeing Tiffany Grant again, Anitubers who rant against AWA because of questionable panels, and much more!

(1:08:28 – 1:59:39) Closing Remarks (i.e. more Chris “Jebuzz Sanix blu hart” Chan prison letters) – This is really self explanatory, this is how we spent our time Reading. These. Letters. Anything with other politics was very brief.

For our Halloween special, the AoY crew decides to give a proper send off to the late Takao Saito by reviewing the first adaptation of Golgo 13 to film back in 1973.

(0:00 – 46:35) Ken Takakura Shoots and Scores! Golgo 13 Review: We figured the best way to honor the late Saito is to review the earliest Golgo 13 manga to film adaptation back in 1973. This would be Jonn first time seeing this film, and Dustin’s second time. Dustin has even written an article online about this film during his days in college, which can be found here. It’s has also been nearly a decade and two podcast series ago since Dustin and Jonn talked about a Golgo 13 film in a podcast episode, so its good to dust off the old M-16 once again. This also contains the psyche of Golgo 13, firearms talk, Crying Freeman, James Bond and much more!

For those headed to Anime Weekend Atlanta 2021, Dustin will be hosting The Wide World of Initial D: A Comprehensive History and That B.A.D Panel (Bad Anime Dubbing) on Saturday, October 30th back-to-back from 3:15 to 5:30pm. We hope to see you there!

(46:35 – 2:19:54) The cesspool that is always Closing Remarks: This includes Richard Epcar early acting roles on Street Hawk, anime on the Sci Fi Channel, the cheezyness of Descendants of Darkness, TV ratings, RIP shoutout to Norm MacDonald, the current status of the COVID vaccine, Chris Chan is the second coming of Jesus, Batman ’66 discussion, The Troubles and European politics, Yaz adapting Cucuruz Doan Island to a film, anime we’ve been watching like High Speed Galvion and much more!
