For our Halloween special, the AoY crew decides to give a proper send off to the late Takao Saito by reviewing the first adaptation of Golgo 13 to film back in 1973.

(0:00 – 46:35) Ken Takakura Shoots and Scores! Golgo 13 Review: We figured the best way to honor the late Saito is to review the earliest Golgo 13 manga to film adaptation back in 1973. This would be Jonn first time seeing this film, and Dustin’s second time. Dustin has even written an article online about this film during his days in college, which can be found here. It’s has also been nearly a decade and two podcast series ago since Dustin and Jonn talked about a Golgo 13 film in a podcast episode, so its good to dust off the old M-16 once again. This also contains the psyche of Golgo 13, firearms talk, Crying Freeman, James Bond and much more!

For those headed to Anime Weekend Atlanta 2021, Dustin will be hosting The Wide World of Initial D: A Comprehensive History and That B.A.D Panel (Bad Anime Dubbing) on Saturday, October 30th back-to-back from 3:15 to 5:30pm. We hope to see you there!

(46:35 – 2:19:54) The cesspool that is always Closing Remarks: This includes Richard Epcar early acting roles on Street Hawk, anime on the Sci Fi Channel, the cheezyness of Descendants of Darkness, TV ratings, RIP shoutout to Norm MacDonald, the current status of the COVID vaccine, Chris Chan is the second coming of Jesus, Batman ’66 discussion, The Troubles and European politics, Yaz adapting Cucuruz Doan Island to a film, anime we’ve been watching like High Speed Galvion and much more!

OP – NO ONE CAN MAKE THAT SHOT!

ED – If only Chris Chan was the Superstar he thinks he is…

The official Ken Takakura kill count!

AoY Podcast #157 – Berserk Review Part I


Also known as: “See I was right! I was absolutely right, and I just said the wrong name!”
and also: “I put JP Morgan in Defense Mode!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:20:22)

Probably our first real anime review since last year, but we honor the late Kentaro Miura by reviewing the 1997 Berserk anime and The Golden Arc Films.

This entire episode (or the most we can do to stay focused on talking about our topic) is dedicated to Dustin and Jonn views on the Berserk anime. There’s hardly anything for a closing remarks segment since we felt like we’ve overdone that in our last episode. This anime is personal to Dustin because he started to watch the anime the month Miura passed, let alone THE SAME DAY that no one knew about till it was made official 2 weeks later! This gets us to discuss other note while things like the Arthur PBS cartoon, our personal history in how we knew/got into Berserk, thoughts on animation issues, books vs. the film adaptations, check out a better Berserk podcast than we could ever hope to achieve, popular shonen titles, Record of Lodoss War and other fantasy anime talk, Dustin leaving Geeks under Grace with his official last article on the Initial D arcade scene, and much more!

We’ll be back hopefully in our next installment to talk about the 2016 and 2017 series.

Music Selection:

OP – RIP Kentarou Miura

ED – Possible best AMV tribute?

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 5:15:43)

No, this particular podcast isn’t 10 years old, we got a couple more years till that happens. This is to commemorate us doing podcasting for 10 years at this point in time going back to the old Kool Kids Klub Podcast days. No one has told us to stop, and if they did, we’re just not going to listen. Join Dustin, Jonn, Daft and Teewhy as we review Godzilla vs. Kong, the Zack Snyder Justice League Cut, and extended closing remarks.

(0:00 – 1:54:07) Review: Zack Snyder Justice League Cut – Yep, this another one of those supersized episodes we recorded over a couple of months. In this piece we have our discussion of the Justice League cut by Zack Snyder which turned out to be a far better film than the 2017 release. This gets us to talking about Daft and Dustin on keeping a log of things they hoarde, er collect, how Canadian geese suck, the Darkman movie and other movies like it during the time, other Wizard of Oz renditions, which is worse: DC EU or Star Wars Sequels?, more Star Wars discussion, if Zach Snyder did a Dragonball Z Cut, the future of anime/fandom cons, porn parody film discussion, our days at Toon Radio and much more!

(1:54:07 – 3:40:15) Review: Godzilla vs. Kong – This was our recent recording to talk about as much as we could on this film, but also filled with other side banter. This includes how Dustin Cowboy Bebop Adult Swim recordings are circulating around the internet more, censorship on Toonami, the Dubs Time Forgot archive.org page, CN anime schedules on TV, Dairy Queen and the sketchy Indians that run them in your local town, Evangelion talk, Jonn and Daft talk about the new Tom and Jerry movie, the future of streaming services, Baby Yoda merch, Dustin passing out in his gaming chair, Space Jam 2 talk and much more.

(3:40:15 – 5:15:43) Extended Closing Remarks – A lot has happened to our main host Jonn and Dustin in the past couple of months, which a whole segment is dedicated to that just for the heck of it. This involves Jonn getting banned from Twitter for doing absolutely nothing, Dustin tells his journey through the maze of internet dating and the crazy women he meets along the way, the Ravi Zacharias controversy, COVID conspiracy discussion, Dustin getting a new ride, how doing outdoor escape rooms with dumb people is a terrible activity to do, RIP shoutouts, early Screw Attack content, going to awesome video stores in Asheville NC, Silent Mobius talk, how we are still podcasting 10 years later, Biden tripping up the stairs and much more!

AoY Podcast #155 – The Cool Communist Cartoons Podcast (CCCP) presents Captain of Cosmos


Also known as: “Charmuro… you’re in a Korean anime…”

And also: “Half that arc was ‘In That Moment’…”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:33:45)

 

The Commies have invaded our podcast! Dustin and Jonn are under the socialist rule of our fellow DPRKhomrads who have a few cartoons to share with us, notably Captain of Cosmos (ie Johnny Destiny Space Ninja)

(0:00 – 1:01:15) Kim Jung-Un Best Anime Collection Presents: Captain of Cosmos – Many podcasts ago, Jonn and Dustin mentioned that they were going to review Korean anime. With the lack of caring in 2020 (like that matters in 2021), both were held at the point of sharp commie bayonets in order to have the proper motivation to talk about Korean anime finally. Both hosts feel Johnny Destiny story is too good of a Korean anime to talk about, since Captain of Cosmos does have some kind of easy to follow story surprisingly. Both hosts talk about other subjects like the releases by defunct “One Dollar Dealer” Digiview Entertainment, trying to describe Space Thunder Kids to Jonn, how Raw Deal is a great forgettable Arnold action film, the purpose of Superman using guns, politics talk (of course), our 10 year anniversary of podcasting coming up over the horizon, and much more!

(1:01:15 – 1:33:45) “Jonn rants for half an hour” Closing Remarks – This was recorded after the Capital riots back in January, where Jonn had to vent about a few things in the last days of the Trump administration. Dustin hit record because it least its some kind of content.

Music Selection:

OP – Please rise for the CCCP national anthem…

ED – Reviewing these Korean cartoons is a raw deal to us…

Please, don’t make us review the DigiView catalogue…

It’s the last show of the year and of the decade, and it comes out hours before the ball drops into 2021! It’s a 3-in-1 bundle of episodes since the first two were supposed to come out during Christmas (which didn’t happen). Now you can enjoy listening to them at your lame New Years Eve party or getting over a hangover on New Years Day!

(0:00 – 1:59:20) ACT 1 – Our Gaming Episode that didn’t make it out in time for ThanksGaming – The excuse for our ThanksGaming and not having one was reasons of not having the time to do it. But hey, Dustin and Jonn talk about a plethora of games that came out in 2020 like Cyberpunk 2077, Mario 3D All Stars, Star Wars Squadrons, Final Fantasy 7 Remake and a few others. This also includes side banter and closing remarks talk of Peter Fay tweets, surviving Atlanta the night Biden got elected on the news, election results talk, Baked Alaska arrest and the world around streams and the IP2 community, RIP Shoutouts to Alex Trebek, Sean Connery to name a few that have passed away, and much more!

(1:59:20 – 3:42:22) ACT 2 – Our annual Star Wars something review of The Mandalorian Season 2 – Because of the entertainment empire of Disney and their golden calf of Star Wars titles to make, Dustin and Jonn go over the Mandalorian series and hit up more on the Star Wars universe. This also gets into a rant on Anita Sarkeesian, remembering when the Bleach fandom had their online meltdown, RIP Boba Fett actor Jeremy Bolloch and Goku voice actor Kirby Marrow, classic film talk such as Gone With The Wind and Metropolis, comedians, Sealab 2021, the upcoming Star Wars series from Disney, how Mega64 makes far superior Evangelion content, Dustin and hosting his AWA panel online (you can find that here on this Google Drive file because I’d rather not put on Youtube in fear of copyright, so enjoy! – Dustin) and much more!

(3:42:22 – 5:47:42) FINAL ACT – A somewhat review of Wonder Woman 84 with a platter of a bunch of nerd ramblings – Dustin, Jonn and Daft come on the mic to give their thoughts on the latest Wonder Woman film, but in reality like 30 or so minutes was spent talking about that movie while they would rather talk about anything and everything else that sidetracked the conversation. Included in this dish is sports talk, live action shows we were watching, Jonn and Daft trash on Looney Tunes Rabbit Run, how the 80’s have warn out its welcome in media, 90’s nostalgia, cartoon remake talks, comics, how it is watching Marvel films with your parents, the Christmas gifts we got this year, Daft explains Section 230 to Dustin, and much more! There’s also a zinger about some dumb 90’s show called Van Pires that Daft wants to review, which that’s something to look forward too!
