What a perfect way to release a podcast about con reviews from nearly 6 months ago before going to a major con like Anime Weekend Atlanta mere hours away. These are the stories of MomoCon and Anime Boston of 2022.
(0:00 – 25:30) Pre-Con Talk Nonsense: Daft and Dustin talk for a bit before diving into Dusitn trip to Momocon this year in replacing the annual Animazement trip because circumstances worked in far better favor for Dustin to go to Momo than Animazement.

(25:30 – 1:37:05) MomoCon 2022 Talk: Dustin dives into his first impressions of Momocon, and was not dissapointed in the slightest. This goes into Gundam Battle Pods, meeting Power Rangers and My Hero voice actors, locations in Texas, Explaining to people what a Bucees is, state liquor sale laws, Netflix Bebop and One Piece talk, weed laws in Fulton County, Daft recounts the AMV competition for Dustin, CW shows and the latest Chris Chan News as of June 2022.

Better late than never right, even when your almost 5 months from when you released your last episode. Well were back with a nearly stacked deck of a podcast because we just want to release out stuff like a Tankobon no one asked for. Here is another 3-in-1 recording with our official review of Netflix Cowboy Bebop, The Batman and smooshed into the middle is a closing remarks segment of news that happened long ago that no one cares about it now, but here it is!
(0:00 – 1:26:21) Part I: Cowboy Bebop (Netflix) Review – Back in late February we recorded our episode about this Netflix series after Jonn had a chance to sit down and watching, and fully admits that Dustin was correct in how great of a show it was, issues and all. Of course, another big worldwide event happened that we had to talk about before going into Bebop, and that is the Russia v. Ukraine War/Conflict/Skirmish/whatever historians are going label this in about 50 years. We give our initial thoughts on what was coming out through the media and other news sources at the time for about 37 or so minutes before we just said “We’ll were not doing much to solve this, let’s just talk about Bebop.” Also included is Dustin talking about how he can’t figure out a 3D printer, old Cartoon Network program blocks, why RightStuf is releasing Gundam Seed so freggin high, and much more!
(1:26:21 – 3:03:07) Part II: The jammed packed gooey-ooey Closing Remarks Special – We were about to do it, we were gonna talk about Batman… and then we didn’t. Instead of caped crusader talk, its filled with Ruskie crusader talk of the Ukraine war one month later (and the people on the ground reporting on it NSFW), RIP Gilbert Gottfried, The Slap Heard Around The World, Dustin being on The Dad’s Anime Stashe Podcast Trivia Contest (and winning it hands down), DeSantos vs. Disney Corp, Dustin being a guest to talk about AMV’s, the destruction of food processing places in America, Global and American politics, The legacy of Toonman, vtuber interviews Van-Pires actor, and much more!
(3:03:07 – 4:45:27) Part III: The Batusi of high class Cinema – We Did It, much much later than we wanted too, but its done. We talk about The Batman. Daft joins in as our special returning guest to give his thoughts on the film, and more insight on the Rise and Fall of Toonman. This also includes comic book store talk, political comics in the 2000’s, History of Batman comics, The Fast and Furious movie franchise, past podcasts, Sports Talk with Daft and Dustin on the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, Dustin recounts the Halo TV series, creepy twitter users and a whole lot more!

So you thought it might be another couple of months before our next episode, well we’ve come to prove you wrong! We got a double dose of content in this batch with our review of Hathaway’s Flash and The Book of Boba Fett.
(0:00 – 44:55) Opening Remarks – Somehow “Ok so let’s start talking about Gundam” turned into a hodgepodge of closing remark material to kick off this episode. But hey, its all good. This gets into probably the podcast no one asked for that requires a YouTuber to give commentary on, the Shenmue anime that is on Toonami, differences of electrical outlets in different parts of the world, video gaming talk, Dustin having the ability to watch whatever he wants to on physical media, coming back around to Sol Bianca, Discotek media releases, crazy girls online, how to promote 90’s nostalgia for GenZeerz, minor Chris Chan talk and a few more things.
(44:55 – 1:28:04) Review: Hathaway’s Flash – So far this is the best Gundam to happen to Gundam in a decade (minus Unicorn probably). For a film that came out last year that is adapting a book from 1989, both host find great promise in where this story is going to lead the viewer in the next two films. This gets into The Great Reset talk, politics in Gundam, an upcoming re-enactment of what Dustin believes Bright Noa is going to do to Hathaway, anime releases on Bluray, the world of Crowdfunding, Dustin first thoughts on Bean Bandit Kickstarter release, and much more.
(1:28:04 – 2:10:24) Review: The Book of Boba Fett – Both Dustin and Jonn were very impressed with the latest Filoni series by Disney+, and both go into detail on what they liked and didn’t like about the series that has been properly named The Mandalorian Season 2.5. This also gets into Star Wars canonical debates, general Star Wars talk, Dustin fouling up once again on who is going to win the Super Bowl, WILL THERE BE ANOTHER PODCAST WHEN WW3 STARTS?!?!, and much more.

Our first recording of 2022 that is now coming out much later than originally sort-of-planned. In this episode Dustin and Jonn talk about the latest Spiderman: No Way Home and recap Netflix Cowboy Bebop.
(0:00 – 1:17:09) Review: Spiderman: No Way Home – Seeing how well this film did to cap off 2021, Dustin and Jonn give their input on the film. This also gets into talking about the different Spiderman actors over the years, both recount watching the Toby McGuire Spiderman films in the early 2000’s and comparing how those have evolved since then, Hot Topic, dead retail companies, audio errors, Matrix 4 talk and much more.
(1:17:09 – 1:37:59) A glance at Netflix’s Cowboy Bebop series – Not really much into closing remarks but can be counted as such, when most of the talk was first impressions by Dustin on how he felt about the Cowboy Bebop adaptation on Netflix. (Well do a proper review of this in due time, maybe).
This show has:
