Also known as: “Bring me the head of Gary Owens!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 2:11:45)

Get ready to travel across the galaxies with your friendly combination robot and the Millennium Falcon where we review Mighty Orbots and Solo: A Star Wars Story!

(0:00 – 52:00) Review: Mighty Orbots – This was a series that has taken years to be put out on DVD, and both Jonn and Dustin jump on the chance to review this great 80’s Saturday Morning Anime co-production cartoon! We’re actually not the only podcast to cover this show, as Anime 82 did it well over a decade ago that no one seemed to notice because of how obscure it was at the time. This also includes the voice actors that worked on this show like the late Gary Owens, other 1980’s cartoons talk, if Orbots had their own Soul of Chogokun toys, getting a hold of the Techno Police 21c Bluray if you order the Blade robot online, if Orbots and God Mars are a fair comparison and much more!

(52:00 – 53:25) Right Stuf Promo: Dustin babbles on for a minute to convince you the listener to buy everything and everything from Right Stuf!, because you totally should, and we should TOTALLY GET PAID (but we kid since the review material we receive is very sufficient, so thank you Right Stuf!)

(53:25 – 1:32:15) Review: Solo: A Star Wars Story – Both Jonn and Dustin enjoyed this film despite it coming out a mere few months after that debacle Last Jedi hit the main screens, which the hosts own review to this movie is very positive in general. This also gets the hosts talking about how Disney might screw up Star Wars in the future and that Han really did shoot first in the cantina.

(1:32:15 – 2:11:45) Closing Remarks – This goes right into the hosts opinions on the Supreme Court decision on Colorado baker case, John McAfee running for the libertarian party in the upcoming election, Tara Strong influence on Teen Titans Go, can President Trump really pardon himself?, the live action American Dad party and much more!

Music Selection:

OP1 – Orbots, UNITE!

ED1 – The conjuring of the late Gary Owens…

OP2- I remember when this song was briefly popular about Han Solo

ED2- John McAfee 2020 theme song!

This show has:

I think he’s the man to run this county for the next 4 years…

Dustin can’t see how this is anything like Mighty Orbots…

Lando be all about big booty robots…

All we had to do was dust off the package and BAM, it’s as good as sold on the front shelf! This starts out with how to fix your internet with magical powers of the Scotsman, Jonn and his story seeing Logan in the “Two Dollar Tard Theater,” retro gaming talk, land owners rights and imminent domain laws, Logan and the Weapon X discussion, Future of X-Men movies, how Disney loves to screw up Star Wars and much more!

(2:13:30 – 04:13:35) DOUBLE BONUS CLOSING REMARKS! – This goes into closing remarks from over a year ago with whatever the political turmoil was in the middle east with ISIS (but that’s pretty much taken care of anyways, so whocaresmovingalong), that bombing of the Ariana GrandeLatte concert, history lesson of how (not) well communism works, rantings on “raising awareness” including that great American Dad episode making fun of it, Late SHOUTOUT to the passing of Sir Roger Moore and how he was in Spice World, James Bond talk, old Timbox info, Samurai Jack talk from last year and a bunch more nonesense.

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 02:45:12)

Comic book film season is upon us once again, where this time the host become our own lackluster triad of reviewers for Avengers: Infinity War.

(0:00 – 49:25) Opening Remarks: Since Jonn and Dustin were waiting for Daft to show up on the call, this gets into killing time with them talking about how terrible Denny’s are and the Anime Podcast Bracket and trash talking ensues, Daft then shows up to add more to the discussion of a local Japan Fest, the legacy of Randy Stair, the ultimate Fall of Channel Awesome, Jonn stupid bird and then some.

(49:25 – 1:50:50) Review – Avengers: Infinity War – At some point all three sit down and finally talk about this film, to go into detail behind Thanos reasons for doing what he did, and how this could affect future Marvel films. Like it would really matter, since this movie topped box office expectations in over a week of its premiere. This also got into general discussion of comics in general, and somehow Stan Lee life was brought up in conversation…

(1:50:50 – 02:45:12) Closing Remarks – … of course which lead to why men love women they way they do (which got into a discussion on monogamy/polygamy), Daft talks about his thoughts on Ready Player One, the Saga of Meson, Bill Cosby and much more.

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!

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 2:23:25)

This time we discover the lost imaginary nation of Wakanda and hunt down the interests of a black panther in the Marvel universe with our review of Black Panther.

(0:00 – 57:00) Movies Review: Black Panther – Now that the film as of this episode has broken the one billion dollar box office amount, the highest rated movie on Rotten Tomatoes and is the center of American political social media discussion, both Dustin and Jonn just see the film as another Marvel movie. Both get into the politicized rhetoric of online reviewers who praise this movie, Dustin discusses Death Wish and Mazinger Z Infinity as being far better films than Black Panther, and also discuss what we liked and didn’t like about the film.

(57:00 – 2:23:25) Closing Remarks – It’s once again time for opinions about all the events that has happened in the past month since our last episode, which leaded to discussions about gun control, should teachers be armed, Alex Jones v. CNN v. Youtube, the GRAND RETURN of Love That Goku, Dustin attends the Atlanta SciFi Expo (which as of this post, the website is 404, so that should tell you something) in a ghetto mall, Jonn mentions the Black Lightning show, Toonami boob censorship, latest Chris Chan documentary and much more.
