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!
