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

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! By using the promo code said in this segment, you can receive %10 percent off your orders, which your sales will come back to us off anything your purchase from AnimeCart. So if you want that promo code, listen to this promo section in this episode to get it. There is also the URL link on the side bar to purchase items that will help us out under the Affiliate tab, and I will POST THAT LINK RIGHT HERE IN THE BOLD TEXT!!

(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!

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…

AoY Podcast #80 – Ghost in the Shell 20th Anniversary Review (w/ Gerald Rathkolb)

On November 18th, 1995, a certain anime film came out that changed the way we look at anime to this day. As anime fans, we owe it to a particular film for shaping how anime has been distributed and the limits on what it can become. We had to call in one of the big guns of anime podcasting, Gerald Rathkolb of the Anime World Order podcast, to discuss the impact that Ghost in the Shell left on the world since its release 20 years ago…

(0:00 – 16:40) Portrait of an Otaku – Gerald Rathkolb: Before we ever got into discussing Ghost in the Shell, we get to hear the backstory of how Gerald became an anime fan in the Virgin Islands. This brings is to know how much someone can hate windsurfing, what it took to own anime at your local Sam Goody, hating on Hanna-Barbera cartoons, how to FEEL THE ANIME POWER!, how the recorder isn’t a real instrument, and more.

(16:40 – 1:28:35) Review – Ghost in the Shell: Gerald takes us down memory lane going back 20 years at this point, where he explains how Ghost in the Shell affected the anime community at the time, and what brought in people to knowing anime. This of course gets us to talk about the Ghost in the Shell manga and other works by Masamune Shirow, and even say something about all the works of what came after Ghost in the Shell movie under the same name. We to spoil a bit of the film in terms of thematic elements of what Mamoru Oshii was putting into the film, which might actually make watching Ghost in the Shell much easier to watch and understand. Gerald pretty much stole the show, but both host just let Gerald tell his stories of high cyberpunk adventure. We also once again bring back the need for you listener to read Brian Ruh book. This of course gets off topic on the good ol’ days of anime being only sold at brick and mortar stores, discussing bloody Italian movies, how Digimon should be with the rest of the anime titles in your local video store, Mamoru Oshii as a director in general, Rumiko Takahashi is a HACK MANGA AUTHOR! THE TRUTH of Evangelion and Christianity, live action anime talk (here we go again…), Harmony Gold hate, Sci-Fi Channel anime censorship, and so much more…

(1:28:35 – 1:43:27) Closing Remarks: Gerald vents on how great Metal Gear Solid V is, which also led to Konami hate, how free to play games are terrible for you, Chris Chan and his transgender amiibos scam, Dustin getting a wisdom tooth pulled, and Dustin also calling out Gerald on his Giant Gorg review.

We should also note, Dustin was able to post up some Ghost in the Shell related things on the internet recently, where he posted the latest blog post at the Anime of Yesteryear Blog of the Animerica Ghost in the Shell issue, and also did a write up at his new blog The Cyber Funker mentioning briefly the impact of Ghost in the Shell. So check those links out!

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.

1. What was the last fansubbed that you watched?
