This idealy was supposed to come out before Christmas, then on Christmas Day maybe, but none of that happened. Dustin Christmas weekend was a s***show day to say the least. Our real Christmas special will come out on the next episode, which in turn is really our 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY of doing this. 10 years of failed promises, broken dreams, lowered expectations, and somewhere in the middle of that is a review of Japanese cartoons somewhat. This time its a con report from the end of October at Atlanta, so enjoy that!
(0:00 – 1:36:45) Con Report: Anime Weekend Atlanta 2022 – Chalk it up to laziness and loss time that back to back episode releases are just more con reports, but we’ll get it right for the next one im certain! Dustin comes back to regail his tale of the major anime con in Atlanta for our listeners. This gets into his invovlement in doing AMV stuff with AMV people, winning awards at AWA, settling some issues with people, Jonn discusses what he did that same weekend that wasn’t at UwUCon, crime and drugs in our local major cities, the haters on Twitter, what we got at the cons, how Dustin is now officially an uncle, Dustin impressions with seeing the latest Mobile Suit Gundam: Cucuruz Doan movie in theaters since the last time he saw a Gundam film in theaters (which was Char’s Counterattack), a quick overlook at 801 T.T.S Airbats anime, Cardcaptors en espanol, how Gundam is seriouz buzinezz!, first impressions of the latest Gundam Witch from Mercury series, what panels Dustin did at AWA this year, Discotek future releases were looking forward too, the Legacy of VegettoEX, passing out in room parties on a Saturday night, get buried in KISS merch, how AWA has a line and drinking problem, and much more!
(1:36:45 – 2:06:05) Closing Remarks – Not too much to say other than addressing a few things from months ago that isn’t a big issue until we bring it up again to light. This includes our quick thoughts on the American mid-Term elections since this was recorded before Nov. 8th, Responding to a Gatomatt Video, the Return of Brick, Elon early reign on Twitter as of last month, 90’s fads, and a few more things to boot!

What a perfect way to release a podcast about con reviews from nearly 6 months ago before going to a major con like Anime Weekend Atlanta mere hours away. These are the stories of MomoCon and Anime Boston of 2022.
(0:00 – 25:30) Pre-Con Talk Nonsense: Daft and Dustin talk for a bit before diving into Dusitn trip to Momocon this year in replacing the annual Animazement trip because circumstances worked in far better favor for Dustin to go to Momo than Animazement.

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.
