AoY Podcast #128 – Avengers Infinity Wars Review


Also known as: “Did you hear that Steven Hawking had ‘gone dead’ at 76?…”

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.

Music Selection:

OP – Thanos is a thicc killa of the universe

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 #125 – Wakandan Panther Review


 

Also known as: “I will kick the tree over right into the [sic] ground and climb it horizontally…”

 

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.

AoY Podcast #122 – The Dark Side Christmas Special (Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review)


Also known as: “What planet grows grey tomato’s… THAT ARE ROCKS!?”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 4:27:09)

Happy New Year!!! 2018 will be our year and savior for humanity until such time when social media says its the worst year ever (like the end of every year on Twitter). So what better way to reign in the new year with our hosts ranting about Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

(0:00 – 2:40:15) The Dark Side Review! Star Wars: The Last Jedi – This film seems to be equally split between those who love and hate this film, just like the balance of the force. Dustin, Jonn and guest Vekou (who shows up about 45 minutes in) state their views on the film. As you can expect, spoilers are afoot in great detail. This lets us compare the Star Wars films to the Fast and Furious film series, how Jonn dog spoke up for animal rights on this film, how Disney can royally screw up a beloved science fiction series, and much more!

(2:40:15 – 4:27:09) Christmas Closing Remarks – This was recorded the next night with Jonn and Dustin keeping the mics warm on a post Christmas night, and more sound proof for Dustin since he recorded in his “sound proof” safe space closet (making his mic sound louder in the process). The remarks include bathroom gender rules, Dustin panels at Big Fandom Greenville, more Star Wars talk, what we got for Christmas, upcoming AnimEigo Kickstarters, video game talk, James Bond talk, Dustin Christmas movies he saw this year, 80’s cartoon themes and the goofyness of Voltron, Chris Chan and Ghost talk, the fall of Bitcoin and so much more!

OP – The theme of Doom by the Disney Star Wars Machine…

AoY Podcast #121 – The Feast of Alvis Christmas Special (Penguin’s Memory Review)


Also known as: “Lost flippers in rice patties.”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:39:35)

It’s an Alvis Day miracle to have another yearly Christmas Special ready to go! So this year Jonn and Dustin talk about another miracle of an anime that we never thought would be fansubbed, but it came to fruition. This year we review Penguin’s Memory.

(0:00 – 35:15) Alvis Day Review: Penguins Memory – This is an anime that has been mentioned on this podcast in the past many times, but it was only a matter of time before certain fansubbers finally got around to making this anime to the anime fandom public. It’s like the movie The Deer Hunter, but with penguins, only it’s not really The Deer Hunter. Penguins Memory is a unique film based off the premise off Suntory Beer ads mixed in with the common ethos of 1980’s Vietnam War movies at the time. It’s truly a film that anime fans need to check out eventually. Along with both hosts staying on topic for once, there is the off topic discussions of how CW superhero shows are trash, the passing of Hiromi Tsuru and other anime featuring animals fighting in wars.

(35:15 – 1:39:35) Closing Remarks – Typical banter follows this segment with Chris Chan latest stupidity on video and stuff about Ghost from TCR. Included is how Dustin has finally graduated university (since he’s been in school since three podcasts ago), the failings of Roy Moore, the US soldier that defected to North Korea died recently, how dumb people Master thesis’s can be, Thor 3 and Justice League discussion, upcoming movies in 2018, the Disney/Fox merger and a whole lot more. Stay tuned for the greatest religious story ever told by Captain Murphy in the zinger.

OP – Left my buddies flippers in a rice patty in the Delta War long ago…
