In this episode, our listeners will be treated to us talking about a completed Shonen Jump series (the anime version that is) where we review Hunter x Hunter.
(0:00 – 1:00:00) Review: Hunter x Hunter (2011) – This recently concluded on Toonami, which prompts Dustin and Jonn to talk about what they remember, going back 3 or so years its been on TV in the states. This also includes our RIP shoutouts to Rutger Hauer and his filmography, how The FP is the Greatest Movie Ever!, and Yuu Yuu Hakusho discussion.
(1:00:00 – 1:37:55) Closing Remarks Take One – This was broken up into two sections due to time constraints, but this is really a hidden extended closing remarks segment of a show this go around. Topics for this part include the recent El Paso shooting, Christianity, The importance of SexEd, women sports and Dustin getting kicked from that CN Reborn discord server (link to goodies found here that we’ll cover in the next episode).
(1:37:55 – 3:28:02) Closing Remarks Take Two – This continues onto our coverage about the reported deposition from Vic Mignogna, our current thoughts on #KickVic, more Christianity talk (thanks to this nifty PregarU video), Jonn throws down the politics discussion from the Democratic Debates, the latest Evangelion Zine that Dustin almost was part of (you can read his rough draft here), how Vice is full of crap, and much more in this episode.

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.

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!

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.

So, Zeonic is currently having some PC issues which sort of hinders any kind of recording for the next couple of weeks. But, as a treat to fill in something at the end of March (MADNESS!!), we did a recording for Regan over at Anime 82 Podcast long ago. How long you say? Well, try the end of November 2013. As of now, Regan current release schedule these days is rather inconsistant, so we’d figure we can give you guys the raw audio for this to enjoy.
(0:00 – 2:00:20) Regan Strongbadz Anime 82 Podcast 21 Questions Series: Since Regan is one to “condense” his audio recordings to fit in a certain time frame, most of our answers have been cut in the past two releases. We’re not doing this out of (TOTAL) spite, but rather for you guys to get THE TRUTH in what we have to say about his questions. Keep in mind, the things we say and mention are from over 16 months ago, so certain titles we mention and what not that haven’t been released have been released by now (like the Space Adventure Cobra series on DVD). We of course are not the only ones to do this, since the AWO crew knew this would happen and did theirs 15 months ago just to have something out during christmas. I should also mention, we got two more recordings that were made around the same time, so those might as well get released on our show. So sit back and enjoy our responses, as there’s is plenty more where that came from.
This is also not the first time Zeonic was ever on Anime 82 either, he has been on in the past for Regan last 21 Question series, and this 8 hour MECHA MADNESS block where he reviewed SPT Layzner before we ever got too it.

It sure seems that were on some kinda Gundam bandwagon, with us talking about Gundam the Origin manga in the last episode, and now the recent release of the Origin anime. We figured now is the time to hit the bullseye with our bulky grey pre-One Year War Guntank before it grinds to a halt and we don’t care as much. So, let’s dive into Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin I “Blue Eyed Casval.”
(0:00 – 52:00) Review: Mobile Suit Gundam – The Origin I “Blue Eyed Casval”: It seems that when anime gets adapted from a manga source, people seem to be up in arms about the final outcome, which is usually for the worse. However, Jonn and Zeonic believe this is a pretty good adaptation in terms that Jonn has read Vol. 5 of the manga and Zeonic has not. So to Zeonic, this is all fresh to him, where as Jonn sees it as pretty accurate and better structured than in the manga. We of course start things off with the current decay of Radioshack, which then leads us to rant about current anime fans taste in anime, what is considered really “filler” in anime, diving into the “pre” Gundam universe, and how one should watch the Gundam series with Origin now being animated. Also, Colony Drop put out their initial reaction of this OVA, and it seems their viewpoint is a bit different than ours, or try a lot.
(52:00 – 1:32:21) Closing Remarks (a.k.a. more Chris Chan talk): Jonn and Zeonic spend a good amount of time closing things out with Zeonic trip to a comic book store in Athens G.A., the card game Superfight!, Marvel movie rights, R.I.P Leonard Nimoy and R.I.P USS Ranger (aka, the aircraft carrier in Top Gun and Star Trek IV), and of course breaking down the audio recording of a past love by our favorite lolcow.

Ok, so it’s been a exactly 25 episodes since we last covered the Gundam the Origin manga. However, we’re at least was honest in that post about if it’ll take longer than 18 episodes to get to the next volume, which we clearly went above and beyond that number. However, Jonn and Zeonic are gonna double dose it for you, by covering TWO volumes of Gundam the Origin in this episode too make up some lost ground. We are also gonna keep up with tradition from last year, and that’s to read out a years worth of comments we have received in 2014 (and some of 2015 as well).
(0:00 – 50:00) Review: Mobile Suit Gundam – The Origin Vol. 3 & 4: After playing our Indiegogo intro at the beginning of the podcast, both Jonn and Zeonic tackle the South American Zeon occupied jungle of Gundam the Origin. Both co-host are able to go through both volumes by hitting the high points of the plot, but it’s all the same if someone saw the original Gundam series to begin with, so die hard fans are not gonna get offended by the spoilers we might say. Of course, this is Yasuhiko way of making sure the White Base crew knew where South America was than trying to trek through Asia to get there like in the original series. Of course before we dive into any of that, Zeonic explains to Jonn how he was still alive by battling a harsh cold, getting on tangents about television censorship in cartoons, and then us talking about Futurama seasons for some reason.
(50:00 – 52:27) Promo’s: Alpha Counter is there to remind us the dangers of today’s post-modern way of accepting Furries and how, that idea is just plain dumb. Anime World Order has been busy with putting out 2 episodes within a months time, which includes interviews with current Hobby Link Japan employee and one of the early founders of American anime fandom Ardith Carlton, as well as talking about SeHa Girls with Heidi Kemps. Dave and Joel still wanna let you know, that Jojo’s is a crazy show to watch.
(52:27 – 2:07:33) Keeping with Tradition – Reading Listener Comments: This is a tradition that we’ll continue to do on the podcast, because it’s our small appreciation to you listeners that we do read your comments, and then later read them out loud on this podcast once a year. Upon reading out our comments in 2014, we get into discussions about Gundam, Macross (and the blunders at Harmony Gold), Captain Harlock, video games and a whole lot more. This of course keeps us up with the latest Chris Chan news, Discotek Media doing their own crowdsource idea, and much more.

Well, we’re in the year of the flying hoverboards, The 3rd Impact and probably other great futuristic movie predictions that escape Zeonic at the moment. However, our anniversary special is gonna be belated for a while, so sorry to tell you guys that. However, we don’t expect it to be as belated as this episode content, which has been collecting dust in our podcast vault for roughly the past 6 MONTHS!! So without further ado, you get to hear a full house of us talk about the 2014 Summer Anime Season!!!
(0:00 – 13:04) Pre-Introduction Segment: Zeonic did his best to edit this episode into a functional experience, but he could only put in so much work before cutting his losses and just rolling with it. Our full house includes the likes of Chibi Goku, Daft and Josh discussing subjects like the Astro Boy theater production, Zeonic talking about the Insufficient Direction anime/manga, our pre-thoughts on Gundam G Recongista, skype issues, the failed Harmony Gold kickstarter and more before we actually get to FINALLY introducing ourselves 13 minutes later.
(13:04 – 1:22:16) Summer 2014 Anime Review Part A: We split our segments up into two parts, which Part A will consist of our first impressions with Sailor Moon Crystal, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, Sword Art Online 2 and Space Dandy Season 2. We also dive into works by Kevin Smith, MyAnimeList issues, hating on twitter people, and TOTALLY FAILING at doing podcast introductions, which explains why we never do them to begin with.
(1:22:16 – 1:24:34) Podcast Promo’s: Speaking of Jojo’s, we got the two men who’s karate is faster then anything you will ever see, because Dave and Joel have found their own way to hone and master such an art of martials. We give shout outs to Alpha Counter, as they continue to make episodes that no longer pertain to that #GamerGate fiasco. Also included is Anime World Order, who recently did a trivia episode to stump Paul “White Daryl” Chapman’s with useless anime trivia to make regular Daryl Surat be an even bigger
jerkoff anime fan.
(1:24:34 – 2:27:42) Summer 2014 Anime Review Part B: This is essentially a Daft/Jonn segment of them talking about all the time wasted watching anime shows they thought were terrible, which included Terror in Resonance, Aldnoah Zero, Tokyo Ghoul, Akame ga Kill, Bakumatsu Rock and Rail Wars! This of course contains off topic commentary about the DashCon/bad MLP cons, Twitter feminist vs. Zeonic, the current state of anime cons, and much more.
(2:27:42 – 2:47:01) Bonus Content!!: This was content that would have made our off-topic talks even more off-topic, with pre-pre-review discussions about the GREATEST SKYPE CRASH OF THEM ALL!, Anime Expo/Jojo’s dub talk, Toonzone rants, past podcast drama, Marvel anime shows, and more.

On the eve of our 2 year anniversary (and the fact that it’s Christmas), Jonn and Zeonic decide to end the year by the wind rising beneath our wings. In this last episode of 2014, we get to soar one last time with Hayao Miyazaki last film, The Wind Rises.
(0:00 – 38:42) Review: The Wind Rises: There is no doubt about it that Hayao Miyazaki will go down as one of the most well known anime directors in the anime industry from the past 30 years. Because hey, without his contributions, we wouldn’t have any good anime to show our folks that doesn’t make all anime nerds look like degenerate social outcast. Despite the fact that Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli are done for, they still had one last hurrah in them, and that’s this film. To Zeonic, he can easily say this is number 2 on his own personal “Best Miyazaki Films” list (which is behind Castle of Cagliostro, as Zeonic cleared up in the recording instead of letting Mononoke be his favorite, because that would be a dishonest travesty if that stayed the record in the podcast). You can expect this film to have funny moustached Italians, sketchy German engineers, falling in love, and making weapons of war in your lifetime. If you want a really interesting review, check out this ANNCast episode where Carl Horn chimes in on his knowledge of the actual Jiro Hirokoshi. Also in this segment, Zeonic and Jonn mention other works by Miyazaki, the current political disputes of Asia and Europe, some World War 2 truths, the Anime Abominations of Don East, and much more
(38:42 – 59:07) UNSOLVED MYSTERIES: VIZ MEDIA Segment: Both Jonn and Zeonic get into a discussion over the hot button issue (as of November) regarding the release of Sailor Moon by Viz Media. Zeonic talks in detail about the ANNCast interview with Viz as to why Sailor Moon turned out the way it did, and the excuses behind it. This also gets Jonn and Zeonic to mention the new Dragonball Z film, as well as manga discussions (aka, really about Golgo 13 manga, because 35+ years of Duke Togo is hard to miss). All this and more in the last episode of 2014. Merry Christmas to all our listeners!!!!

After a 15 month absence, Zeonic and Jonn decide to bring back the anime directing champs of their heydays and put them and their shows back into the podcast cagematch for yet another bout. Our last featured bout was showcased back in Podcast #24, were we had Tomino’s Ideon pitted against Takahashi SPT Layzner. This time, we bring out the political western big guns for another match of Takahashi vs Tomino Round 3. This time we got Combat Mecha Xabungle against Gasaraki.
(0:00 – 50:42) Review: Combat Mecha Xabungle: This was a recording done back in early November, where Zeonic FINALLY got around to watching the Xabungle Graffiti compilation movie. And like the usual fare, Zeonic watches a bad compilation of something, while Jonn (being the one who watched the whole show) has to sit Zeonic down and tell him where the compilation made its mistakes in telling the story, which was a lot of areas. Of course even with Zeonic watching a raw compilation movie, he still enjoyed all the zaney moments that made it mostly entertaining, such as how the anime doesn’t give a damn about animoo physics, wild west amnesty laws, anime staffers who didn’t do their jobs in coloring, little girls who explain the plot for you, and Megas XLR way before Megas XLR. We should note, as usual, Jonn and Zeonic start the podcast off by not diving into Xabungle, but talking about the ending of the Naruto manga and those who marathon them on ANN, which leads to the end about Chris chan and “Shovel Mechs,” Miyazaki films, and much more.
(50:42 – 54:06) Promos: Since we realized that promo’s for other podcast haven’t been featured in a while, we decide to inform you about other podcast you probably should already know about. Anime World Order recently released their 2nd review of the Shinji Aramaki Captain Harlock movie (which we covered back in #51). Fast Karate for the Gentleman did one recently about them still watching Jojo’s, because they are the only two men alive that this show is made for. Jeff from the Daily Anime Podcast decided to release two episodes in one day, which were about Legend of Galactic Heroes and Five Nights at Freddy’s 2. And lastly we got Alpha Counter, who seems to be covering a lot about #GamerGate, because they are the right people for the job without them sounding like extremists on either camps of that following.
(54:06 – 1:50:16): Review: Gasaraki: This part of the recording was recorded back in September, meaning this has been in Zeonic external HD backlog for a while until Xabungle got reviewed. But to Zeonic viewpoint, much like the show, the recording should have taken a long slumber and never have been disturbed. Zeonic even wonders if Gasaraki might be the next big anime sleep aid to anime insomniacs out there, much like how Odin: Photon Space Sailor Starlight has been the cure for otaku insomnia for years now (but were still waiting on the hard facts to back up that claim). This show is full of people being locked up in rooms, clone facilities in the middle of nowhere, wandering in the backwoods of Japan, NERV somehow existing, street wars in South Central Akihabara, pimping out your Koga mech, and unneeded food sanctions. This prompts Zeonic and Jonn to mention political issues at the turn of the century like Kosovo, Jonn mention of Wag the Dog, middle eastern history, and how Gasaraki must be a parallel universe to our own?
(1:50:16 – 2:25:45) Unnecessarily “Longer-Than-Usual” Closing Remarks: This might be, on record, the longest time we have spent on closing remarks. This of course came with an agenda, which was Zeonic doing something for Alpha Counter, which may have been a bad decision? Regardless, the real meat of this discussion is the Alpha Counter vs DAPDX Indiegogo Campaigns, general issues with crowdsourcing, mentioning the disasters of DashCon and MineOrama, knowing a bit about our past, Dasuki and Discotek talk, and much much more.

Ok, so here’s the deal guys: This con was back in April of this year, so almost 4 months ago, and Zeonic is NOW getting this report out towards the end of the summer. I am sure there was ample time to for him to put something out between now and then, but he didn’t, and he really doesn’t care. Zeonic can’t blame this one on procrastination (well, maybe a little bit) because hey, if you check on what came out between now and April, we have had a full plate on talking about a variety of things that has happened. So without further ado, here is what Zeonic thought about Nashicon. (WARNING: THE AUDIO SUCKS IN THIS!)
(0:00 – 35:00) The beginnings of a Convention Report: NashiCon: Being how this is Zeonic 3rd year to attend NashiCon, it is an improvement from last years venue he must say. With a kicking game room done by the people who do the game rooms for Animazement, actual guest like Robert Axelrod and Lisle Wilkerson to attend this year and panels of interest to go too, this has gone up in quality to his con standards (I guess I can’t talk to much there.) This also gets Zeonic to talk about an “obscure” anime panel that he believed had anything to do with obscure anime, getting to know artist alley girls by their mention of Kawajiri anime to start a conversation with, talking about the game room, discussion of the LejiVerse, which diverts to…
(35:00 – 55:40) AN INCOHERENT SEGUE TO GENERAL VIDEO GAME TALK: Yep, we spend this time talking about video games because we can. This went to talking about game systems, how Zeonic spent money on a Wii that is just and emulation device now, android games that lets you see the world, some youtube troll personality, Sonic talk, Shenmue discussion and probably some more. But when Zeonic went to mention Lisle Wilkerson…
(55:40 – 1:18:37) The failed attempt to finish a Convention Report: NashiCon: Both Zeonic and Jonn were able to get it together and complete the task before them, which is just more discussion of talking about people at the con and con life I guess you can say. This did talk about people with signs at the con, what Zeonic got at the con (which was talk of Cosmo Police Justy in America. Here is a link to ebay on what people want for the Justy VIZ print these days), 90’s Nickelodeon show talk, and more stuff I cannot really remember, which there was more to mention.

Alright, so here’s the deal guys: We decided to cut our losses and say “screw it” for this episode, as we figured it was the best plan of action to combine all of the other AU Gundam shows we care the least about and put them all in one episode since we all are gonna be busy for the next few weeks that will take us away from recording. So we decided to put the past decade’s worth of Gundam shows into one episode with Gundam 00, SD Gundam Force, Gundam Age, Gundam Build Fighters and Gunpla Builders Beginning G.
0:00 – 58:35: We decided to review in this way because most of the shows listed is stuff we have seen before, but cannot remember most of it since we do not have the luxury of time to go back and re-watch all of them. So consider what we have to say about these shows as a “condensed review,” instead of our usual fare of going into grand detail and spoiling stuff (oh wait never mind, we do that in this episode as well.) We roughly spend a few minutes on each show, but spent most of the time I think on Gundam 00 talk and Gundam Build Fighters; because Build Fighters was recent and we want everyone to see it as it’s the next God Gundam show in this current decade.
58:35 – 1:21:00: Of course, we get side tracked a bit and go into discussion’s about the people against the Viz release of Sailor Moon, Sailor Moon in general, THE GREATEST VERSION OF SAILOR MOON IN HISTORY!, AUDIO ISSUES GALORE!!, discussing some of the “comments” we have received so far on our Gundam Seed review from last week, more Gundam talk thrown in and probably other weird and stupid things as well.

am enjoying the new Sailor Moon fandom crazyness. Takes me back to the 90s when a Sailor Moon cult reportedly existed in Conyers GA

@colonydrop the story was some wannabe cult leader was telling girls they were actually Sailor Scouts, or something.
— dave merrill (@terebifunhouse) May 20, 2014
right before AWA 3, the convention was mentioned by a radio DJ who also mentioned the “Sailor Moon cult”. Good advertising, I guess

It’s been exaclty 18 episodes since we covered the first volume of Gundam the Origin manga, and for that… we have zero excuses as to why its been that long (no wait, it’s all Josh’s fault). The bigger question is, is it going to be take another 18 more episodes to get to volume 3? I am not even sure if we can be at liberty to answer that question at this time. But hey, we finally got around to talking about volume 2 now. We also get to dive into the Dragonball Z movie that came out last year, Battle of Gods, and finish things up with our thoughts on the last days of Sword Art Online being on Toonami. This episode was also recorded on the new mic I got, and as you can probably tell, I sound kinda different. I am still working out the kinks on how to make it sound, so well see how that goes down in the next few episodes (or if I just need to go back to the old USB Headset).
0:00 – 34:05: So after all this time of mentioning an episode to review Gundam the Origin Vol. 2 in our past episodes, that day has finally come. We pretty much discuss changes made in the manga from the anime series that we were able to point out and give our take on it. Of course, like usual fare, we don’t stay on topic much, not when I say that Brony’s have their own docutmentary, people who hate old UC Gundam shows at comic book places, general Gundam talk (cuz thats how we do it,) the dubs of Streamline anime, how Gundam was animated back in the day and much more. There was also an issue with a transition from us talking about Bright B(right)-slapping Amuro in the manga to getting in the middle of a discussion of Double Zeta. All you need to know is that is how GarageBand works for us.
34:05 – 1:05:20: After talking about this film a little bit on our AIM chatroom a few days before we recorded, we decided to also give our thoughts on last year’s Dragonball Z: Battle of Gods movie. For a film made almost 20 years after Wrath of the Dragon, it seems to be an all around fun movie for true Dragonball Z fans. This gets us to mostly talk about Dragonball Z in general (or really Zeonic’s recollection of a show he hasn’t seen in almost a decade at this point), how people think it’s a good idea to make a 1080p video of Gundam Wing openings, our favorite lolcow news and more.
1:05:20 – 1:43:20: While in the middle of Jonn’s closing remarks on Love_that_Goku becoming a Satanist, Josh brings up a much more pressing matter at hand than anything we have discussed so far, SWORD ART ONLINE IS FINALLY OVER ON TOONAMI!!!! We relished in our celebration to bring you our thoughts on the last 2 episodes of that god forsaken show. Of course, we called upon a man who we have mentioned his name in passing several times in the past; a man who is our source of SAO knowledge, and a man who can only be called upon as… “C.G.” (ChibiGoku). Along with SAO bashing and smashing, we discuss if Japanese might be true rednecks, VHS/VCR tech talk, what’s going on in Toonami, how we celebrated SAO last episode, how the new Robocop film is pretty good, and much more.
Next time, you can expect us to get into the zone for our March (and probably April) review of a particular 80’s anime gem.
We also want to give a shout out to Otaku Generation for playing our promo on their most recent episode.

This review comes with a purpose when Jonn and I decided to take on this unique title from the great Go Nagai. That purpose in mind was to take a stand on the idea of never backing down or backing out of something that certain reviewers hype up to fans for the past couple of years, only to give their fans a metaphoric “blue balls” in the final product. Because of one such review in question, Jonn and I ventured off once again in the Uncut hell of Violence Jack…
Ok, here’s the real”no BS” reason why we decided to cover Violence Jack now: This is a retaliation against one Bennett the Sage/Anime Abandon at ThatAutismWitDemGlasses website, because the dude decided it would be a better use of time to do a 30 minute poor-ass-bad-white-mans-acting-drama video than to actually show any footage or go into any depth of Violence Jack for his so call “review.” So, that gigantic waste of time got me and Jonn fired up to finally sit down and talk about this anime that we have been discussing for over 2 years now (going back to our early Kool Kids Klub Podkast days.) So, its high time we give those people what they really want to hear about old Jack here, the good honest in-depth truth, spoilers, and no BS talk like we do with everything we review.
I’ll be honest, i’m not gonna force anyone to see Violence Jack. That is an anime I will say to watch at your own discretion, where no other human soul is around to view it with you. At least by watching it, you will lose part of our humanity, it just happens. Of course on that note, we mention a bit more on our dislike to the reviewers of TGWTG people, if Jack is somehow related to Wolverine, other people who hate Bennett the Sage, the fans of Bennett, people who make mistakes, birth rates in other countries, Go Nagai anime in general, how AVGN is a cool dude, how you should have gotten Golgo 13 from the RightStuf sale, I say Do Svidaniya to Mikhal Kalashnikov and much more.

For this episode, we review… absolutely nothing. We decided to take this time and discuss a few things that were on our minds, and to also trash talk those we “kindly” disagree with.
Our main discussions are about two internet/Twitter peoples opinions on the anime industry, dubs vs subs, and programming opinions that we personally disagree with to the highest extent of the natural order. We also bring up how you should not treat delinquents who commit a crime, why Dragonball Evolution, Live Action Johnny Bravo and Avatar movies are terrible (but i make a mention of a pretty good movie, Riddick) and a slew of Skype audio issues (all thanks to Jonn’s
crappy NEW modem Ex-crappy modem).
We do bring up how College life is going for us, we talk about Patlabor for a bit, and end things off with what we are keeping up with on Toonami. All this and more in this weeks segment.

The long awaited review from us is now finally out! I know we promised this like… a couple of months ago, but it’s finally out now. This week, we have our overly belated Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin review.
In this episode, we breakdown probably the best thing Yoshikazu Yasuhiko has done to date, as we go into depth on retelling of the beginnings of Mobile Suit Gundam. This also includes our general thoughts on Gundam, our thoughts on the publishing company Vertical Inc, audio issues, cool video game statues and much more.
Special Guest: Jeff from the Daily Anime Podcast
Disclaimer: I do wanna let you listeners know, Vol. 2, “Garma,” comes out on June 25th on Amazon.com and through other retailers. So if we didn’t spoil too much of this for you to check it out, and you got the dough to spend on books, then get them.

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.

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.
