1995 called saying it wants new versions of their hit movies that year, which got the hosts talking about Power Rangers and Ghost in the Shell… from this year.

(0:00 – 1:05:08) Review: Power Rangers – Dustin and Jonn and guests Cloud and Daft join together to dawn our power suits and get ready to take on this movie full force with our MegaZords all in the name of friendship! Well, not really, but it did warrant a good discussion (specially when Daft showed up 30 minutes later). Power Rangers was a film Daft hated to love, and Dustin saw it as a movie he loved to hate. There are spoilers afoot in breaking down scenes that were just stupid to begin with, as well as how twitter won’t shut up about it being this pro-ELGEBETE diverse crap fest. This warrants other Haim Saban discussions and other stuff, including Dustin trying to get away from a devoted fan rambling off his Power Rangers love to him at a Hot Topic.

(1:05:08 – 1:06:18) Promo: Just slipping in a quick Anime Cart and RightStuf! promo for you guys to drop all your dough on their websites. (Happening RIGHT NOW, you can get a FREE Naruto Headband with any purchase from animecart.com. Even though in a previous episode I stated about dumb teens going there to get headbands, I just got one, because its FREE! so that makes me feel a little better about getting one to act like a “highly functioning autistic ‘narutard'”, and you should too. Use our discount, it does work! – Dustin)

(1:06:18 – 1:55:15) Review: Ghost in the Shell – Just as Daft was more forgiving of Power Rangers, Dustin was even more so with Ghost in the Shell, despite the twitter anti-whitewashing hate machine taking credit that they movie failed. Its been over a year since we talked about Ghost in the Shell, and if you want our 1995 review of that, it can be found in this giant link in this text. Although not a perfect film, Dustin explains his reason why this film shouldn’t have gotten the specific negative attention it got when they’re other factors wrong with the movie, but it was mostly complaining about the haters of this film online. It’s more got to Dustin trying to defend the film for the things it did right, which was more than what the internet was going to give it credit for. Also, mics are being thrown down in anger, just saying. Dustin also wrote an article for The Odyssey about this film, so give that a read.

(1:55:15 – 2:18:35) Closing Remarks: There is still more discussion on haters and the internet, as well Cloud talking a little about Anime Boston, Dustin hating that UNC won the NCAA tourney, Ghost from TCR going sober, The People v. Jontron, are pets racists?, and finding your brothers anime items in storage to claim as your own. All this and much more in this weeks episode. Also fair warning, Dustin mic is super loud for some reason, but that will be fixed next episode.

Music Selection:

OP1 – Power Rangers Theme by A Robot (or Dustin’s good friend)

ED – Dustin will try and forget about this film, but doubt it

OP2 – We dive hard in this ghostly landscape of a film…

Basically, this episode is a general discussion, that was supposed to be about Sausage Party, but it ain’t all there guys. But, eff it, let’s just roll with what we got.

(0:00 – 1:28:00) The Timbox AuDIOtism Hour – After throwing in a promo at the beginning to promote AnimeCart.com, Dustin, Jonn and Daft talk about whatever they wanna talk about, which is mostly just dumb Slack chatroom non-drama, Timbox 123 and his many FULL LENGTH, ANIMATED, ONE MILLION PART FILM legacy adventures, Dustin sings THE GREATEST SONG IN THE WORLD,  and Justice League Dark (not really, but Daft says I should put that in – Dustin).

(1:28:00 – 2:06:15) SAUSAGE FEST-PARTY ’17!! – The most we talked about this terrible movie was us talking about the lowdown of how the animation studio who worked on it got screwed over, and then talked about adult Ralph Bakshi cartoons.

(2:06:15 – 2:34:36) Closing Remarks: Discussions include The New England JCPenny comic con, Dustin NCAA Tourny Bracket is toasted (aka screw off UNC for winning it once again!), local K Marts out of business and more.

What better way to end out 2016 but to travel back long ago, in a galaxy far far away. This time Dustin and Jonn are joined by previous guests Daft and Vekou to talk about Star Wars: Rogue One.

(0:00 – 1:07:30) Review – Star Wars: Rogue One Review – The council of nerds have all gathered to talk about the recent Star Wars film, which seems to be divided in the fandom of who likes and dislikes this movie. All hosts mention the movies strengths and weaknesses, as well as talk about other Star Wars material. This of course gets us talking about story lines in video games, nerd conversations on Clerks movie levels, and much more.

(1:07:30 – 3:02:44) Post-Christmas Holiday Closing Remarks – A lot has happened over the past month, and the hosts have something to say about it. Aside from talking about what we all got for Christmas, we give RIP shout outs to Alan Thicke, Carrie Fisher and George Michael passings. We also mention convention talk from Daft’s North East Comic Con review and seeing the Hanna Barbera exhibit, where as Dustin went to experience what happens when a high school puts together a comic con in the middle of nowhere. There is also discussion of a book about Tommy Wiseau, talk of terrible and cool animation industry people, Dustin desire to meet Jerry Beck and Fred Patton, abandoned Flinstone parks, the recent ramblings of Peter Fay, who to ban from our chat, and much more.

Tis the Season to be down for a post-apocalyptic beatdown, where this time Dustin and Jonn travel to 198x once again to see how Christmas went down in Fist of the North Star Arc 4!

(0:00 – 1:07:38) Review: Fist of the North Star Arc 4 – After almost 4 years since we last talked about Hokuto no Ken, it’s time both hosts went head strong and battled for our lives against the Ken-Oh Army! This isn’t intended as a holiday special, but it seemed perfect to add this review into the show 4 months after it was first recorded back in August…..something. Both hosts tell their tales on how they got the ultimate set for the retail value of a 2002 ADV DVD, which gives you listeners almost another 100 episodes (maybe) before you might get a review from us on Hokuto no Ken 2 . If the story of Jesus is considered The Greatest Story Ever Told, then consider this climatic end to Fist of the North Star as the greatest story ever told, except on Christmas cuz baby Jesus has gotta come first. Both host also talk about dumb people on the internet, the new iPhone (from 4 months ago), anime forum stupidity, who Jacob T. Paschal really is and his secret buying habits (U NO IM RITE!),and more. (Oh yea, the audio in this is pretty garbage, but oh well, not gonna talk about Fist for a while, so just suck it up!)

Promo: I know its the holiday season, but i’m not gonna add in an audio piece this time for Anime Cart or RightStuf because those last two podcast promos I did explain all of that. But since your not gonna listen to them (like I know your not), for Anime Cart just type in the promo code AOYPODCAST when you check out something you want, which gives you a bit of a discount for this holiday season…. and any time after that. Just use your grandma’s money to pay for that Attack on Titan statue you really want, or didn’t but now you do!

(1:07:38 – 1:33:45) Closing Remarks: Seeing how this information is old as dirt, its about when Youtube was doing crackdown on monitization videos, Gundam stuff, both hosts having connection issues (which for the most part is fine now), and much more. Stay tuned for the holiday zinger brought to you by Sean Ryan and Kevin Gray.

Music Selection:

OP – How to have Christmas in the Post-Apocalypse…

ED – Fist, you were able to ease my long pain after all…

Zinger – Christmas as sung by Jacob T. Paschal…

It’s that time a year again kiddies, where the Devilman comes to visit our podcast with bad tidings and fear. Only this time, he sends us this terrible 2004 live action movie instead of an anime.

(0:00 – 1:00:35) Review: Devilman (2004) – If there is one thing anyone can point out that isn’t true or cool about Devilman, its gonna be this film. We pretty much spoil about every scene so you don’t have to see it, unless you really want too by your own ambition. Both Jonn and Dustin point out at least one positive aspect of this movie, and that is Bob “The Beast” Sapp, Japan number one super, fantastical, black, kawaii celebrity! We also go off topic a bit (with a film like this, can you blame us?) on topics like who in the hell dubbed this movie, how CGI M.D. Geist spokesmecha is better looking than this, what to expect at your local redneck gun show, dumb reasons to promote Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters from Beverly Hills, and so much more.

(1:00:35 – 2:20:11) Closing Remarks – To keep up with current events, both Dustin and Jonn talk about what we have been keeping up the theme in the past closing remarks, which consist of twitter people and the American election. This time, Love that Goku goes off on Britney Spears son for dressing like Frieza, how this election could actually be rigged than Donald just assuming it might be, Dustin puts up content for The Odyssey talking about Gundam in the West and AnimeDrome, Jonn talks about what he did at Phoenix FanFest, the moral dilemma on bootleg merchandise, Tim Eldred Yamato documentary, Zeonic Republic latest blunder on their Char’s Deleted Affair release, dumb people on our chatroom, Gundam talk and much more.

OP – This movie will SAPP the life outta you…

ED – Maybe next years Devilman will give us that fix again…
