It’s that time of year, where con season is upon us. So to kick things off as usual guests Daft and Cloud return to talk about their yearly trek to Anime Boston!

(0:00 – 51:45) The Anime Boston Chronicles: Chapter Cloud – Our resident Precure fanboy Cloud stops by and fills us in on his adventure at Anime Boston, filled with meeting Guest of Honor, buying stuff and places to eat. To find more detail about his experience go to his blog found here. This also has us chiming in on the Sailor Moon panel, places to eat in Boston, failed Adult Swim pilots about Bostonians, Leiji Matsumoto manga releases, which live action movie was worse, prices from dealers like Anime Asylum and the cel market and much more.

(51:45 – 02:44:35) The Anime Boston Chronicles: Chapter Daft – Daft joins in to go into a longer digest of the “other side” of the convention, including hotel wrasslin matches, good artists at artist ally, getting to meet Steve Blum and how he does his panels, Greg Ayres stories (including what parents thought YAOI meant in the early 2000’s), past video players like Juice Box and Game Boy Advance Video, Toonami April Fools talk, arcade games at the con, old anime trading cards, Jonn dog has a nightmare of Daft’s adventures, Sports talk with Daft and Dustin, and much more!

(02:44:35 – 03:02:37) Closing Remarks: Really nothing much was said other than the occasional Peter Fay and Love That Goku tweets, Daft trying to proposition Cloud sister into wrasslin next year, getting educated on what Easter is all about, and why the Pats let Brady literally kiss their superbowl away.

AoY Podcast #126 – Outlaws vs. Cowboys: The Bebop Stars of Space


Also known as: “The Beau Billingslea Power Hour on Toonami!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 3:05:30)

We talk about the two biggest titans in the galaxay among anime fans in the early 2000’s, where we review Outlaw Star and Cowboy Bebop!

(0:00 – 45:40) Review: Outlaw Star – This podcast episode is the historic record of the pinnacle of what was important to anime fans on Cartoon Network starting from 2001 and beyond. Outlaw Star was a big anime among the viewers of Toonami, and Dustin heard about this show for years until he finally saw the series shown on Toonami recently for the first time. Both hosts Jonn and Dustin and special guest Daft chime in to talk about the overview of the series with some spoilers thrown in. This also includes how its vital importance that Jonn dad tells Jonn in the call that the dog is eating cheese off the floor, the stupidity of Transformers cartoons, Outlaw Star merch in America, FLCL revival talks, will Hamtaro be on Toonami for Aprils Fools Night? (as of this writing, Adult Swim showed FLCL Alternative subtitled on TV, followed by Mind Game, and a bunch of the regular block airing in the same format, because I’m writing this about 1am on April Fools night – Dustin), Toonami censorship on TV and much more.

(45:40 – 1:39:00) Review: Cowboy Bebop – This episode marks the 20th anniversary since the anime first aired on TV Tokyo, and how it later showed up that late summer on the new Adult Swim block on Cartoon Network in 2001. Both hosts recant how much of an impact Bebop has had on them as anime fans all these years later, including the merch that’s out there (you can find the pdf of the Bebop Anime Guides here at my blog – Dustin). This goes into account what particular episode got Dustin involved in Bebop, our top 3 Bebop episodes, the TV edits, and a whole lot more!

(1:39:00 – 3:05:30) Closing Remarks – This is chock full of material that covers for the month of March since we last recorded, including how Love that Goku got social services on his butt, Linkara leaving TGWTG and the twitter thread full of the company drama, Meson in dire need, the fully funded Kickstarter for Gunsmith Cats, The Toys That Made Us Netflix Documentary series, Dustin con talks on Toylanta and SC Comic Con, RIP Toys R Us/southern food stores/Return of KB Toys, the Mystery of Miami Mike finally solved by The Anime Nostalgia Podcast and the stupid weeaboo drama that follows on the ANN Forums, Dustin mentions his thoughts on Pacific Rim 2, and much more!

AoY Podcast #119 – Go Nagaiween Special (Go Nagai World Review)


Also known as: “This podcast is a turtle… awkward turtle…”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time- 1:38:19)

It’s that time of the year again where the Devilman brings good tidings and fear to Halloween, and bad comedy (should mention that hardly no editing has been done, so well just roll with it again to get this out on time – Dustin). This year we review CB Character Go Nagai World.

(0:00 – 1:07:25) Halloween Review: Go Nagai World – In keeping up with our hallows-eve tradition with the Devilman himself, this time we are joined by the more notable characters of Go Nagai that Devilman and the gang get to meet. This is an anime for the true Go Nagai fans out there, like those who own Super Deformed Double Feature because they are big ARTMIC fans. In this review we also go off the beaten path with “Dick”sploitation movies, Jeb Bush and his Turtles, what Dustin went as for Halloween, other Go Nagai properties (mainly Violence Jack, because that’s all that matters), our ideas of a Violence Jack video game, and much more.

(1:07:25 – 1:38:19) Closing Remarks – This was surprisingly short since this past month has been full of top headline stories, namely like how Chris Chan and his “Sweetheart” broke up, Dustin and Jonn thoughts on the world of Blade Runner, Toon Radio wont live again, how whoring out for cash like the rest of those YouTubers ain’t our style (not yet at least), and much more.

What better way to celebrate the unfreezing and carving of turkeys, stuffing yourself with bread stuffing, and parked in front of the couch to watch the Cowboys play whoever-the-hell on the tube. To people outside of America that don’t celebrate this holiday, you can celebrate it with our review of Magic Users Club TV by RightStuf!

(0:00 – 1:23:18) Holiday Review: Magic Users Club TV – The folks over at RightStuf found it rather giving in their hearts to send us over our copy of Magic Users Club to review, this time the television series. The show works the same as it did in our OVA Review a handful of episodes ago; girls with magic flying around and trying to save things. Our co-hosts Dustin and Jonn had their particular likes and dislikes on the show, with Jonn favoring it over Dustin’s tastes. All in all, it’s a fun, dumb show that certain people would really enjoy in the end, and we cover all the show has to offer. The hosts also happen to be side tracked on their broom ride review with topics like bloopers on anime DVD’s, Dustin explains what he believes THE TRUTH was really like behind those Central Park Media doors, Risenbool Rangers is the American equal to the Aburatsubo fanclub, anime DVD’s that can’t label for crap (“I’M CALLING YOU OUT A.D.V, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!” -Dustin), Arcade Mania!, Eurobeat/Ganguro fashion, pissed off Bleach fandom and more.

(1:23:18 – 1:25:50) Promo’s – We do our usual fare for telling people to check out RightStuf! site for the best deals on anime, as well as the Holiday Sale happening RIGHT NOW! But WAIT, THERE’S MORE! We are also promoting AnimeCart, an online retailer that can hook you guys up with your anime merch needs! Need a love pillow, cosplay accessory, or DBZ figure? They Got it!

(1:25:50 – 1:54:14) Closing Remarks – Seeing how this is old information from freaking August, we mention our thoughts on different ideas on religion, how Ghost from TCR becomes a Demon because Homeland Security DOUBLE DIPPED DA CHIP!, Dustin internship this semester, RightStuf Gundam merch talk and more!

AoY Podcast #95 – Gundam Evolve Review

Also known as: “Now your associating Gundam Wing with ‘Oops I did it again!’ in your mind?”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:26:07 )

Because of RightStuf! efforts in putting out more Gundam, our podcast has gone through an evolutionary change with our review of Gundam Evolve.

(0:00 – 1:05:25) Review: Gundam Evolve – Our podcast has now evolved into the next stage in human nerdvolution. Gundam Evolve is 15 short films involving short side stories and what-was-then cool looking CGI 3D model effects from the early 2000’s. If you happen to be a big Gundam nerd, then this is up your ally to add to your collection. As per usual on the podcast, the review usually starts about 10 minutes after the recordings started, where Jonn and Dustin talk about the DVD cover of Super Gals! This only gives more ammunition to Dustin 1990’s memory of the only show on Nickalodeon that mattered, while both hosts go off the review grid a bit to mention the fall (and rise again) of Tokyopop, the stories behind Shin Matsunaga and Johnny Ridden, Dustin repressed 90’s pop music memories, Gundam sunglasses and much more. For a review of animated shorts after the 1990’s, this episode feels more like a 1990’s nostalgia trip than anything else.

(1:05:25 – 1:26:07) Closing Remarks – This time closing remarks are pretty short, where we mention our thoughts on the impact the Orlando Shooting had, American politics, Toon Radio stupidity, and more.

Music Selection:

OP – Gundam is an Evolution not to be reckoned with…

ED – Oops, I guess I remembered the 90’s again…
