AoY Podcast #118 – MegaConPod GO! (Animazement / AWA 2017)


Also known as: “Mom, this Pie is Totally AIRWOLF!”

After about 5 months of not putting out any con coverages, Dustin thought we can just double up and OD our listeners with two major cons in one episode with Animazement and Anime Weekend Atlanta.

(0:00 – 2:16:45) Animazement 2017 Review – Do people other than this podcast talk about cons 5 months after they happen? Well who knows, but it’s coming out now finally! Of course, this doesn’t go into Animazement immediately, not when Jonn had something to say about not going to see the failed assassination of Jason David Frank at Phoenix Comic Con. Jonn also talks about the dumb weapons policies to “protect” attendees that are not JDF and Robotech. It’s still about roughly 30 or so minutes in that Dustin talks about his con experience at Animazement. Included in this review is stories of the inside world of Limited Run Games, seeing your old teenhood house for the first time in years, how Strafe is inferior to Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, nerds who fail at hitting on girls, Justin Roland stories, people who bring their cats to cons, Antifa v. Street Preachers, not seeing this years Anime Hell, the History of Animazement, meeting forum members IRL, closing remarks of Timbox/Chris Chan and much more.

(2:16:45 – 4:49:07) AWA 2017 Review – Here’s a con that happened within a month that we can get a decent review out in time. This was Dustin first time going to AWA, and based on his 2 day experience, it’s a con worth going back too. This of course comes with meeting anime fan legends like Dave Merrill, Daryl Surat, Walter Amos, Neil Nadelman, and meeting new fans while there as well. This is also another instance where rooming with another forum member makes the con a better experience, and even doing a podcast drunk with them is also fun. Included is how Hell is done at AWA, old school anime dubs, buying up anime vinyl records and playing them on this recording, and more. Closing Remarks are about how the podcast is trying to monitize, the Las Vegas shooting/gun control laws discussion (there’s a part I meant to say was an amendment but said constitution by mistake. So if you caught that, my bad), Chris Chan relationship ends (before it ever got started), Jonn squeaky chair chimes in, Final Fantasy games, Dustin owning an SNES Classic and much more!

OP – Here’s to a great 20 years of Animazement…

AoY Podcast #117 – Super Gals Review


Also known as: “Light Lucario = Ran Kotobuki”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:33:12)

After having this DVD set collect dust in our pile-O-shame’s for over a year, Jonn and Dustin finally get around to talking about Super Gals.

(0:00 – 45:00) A Super Shibuya Anime Culture Review: Super Gals – If you want to test the standards of any 2000’s anime comedy series can still hold up in today’s anime fandom, just leave it up to podcast reviewers to see how far they can stand a show before calling it quits. This is more of a review of the first two episodes of Super Gals than it is a whole series of Super Gals. Let’s not kid ourselves, these two episodes gave both hosts everything they needed to know about this anime. Super Gals is a parody of 1990’s Japanese fashion culture that lies somewhere between Kogal girls, Ganguro girls and fighting for justice because you’re daddy is a police chief. This also gets into talking about how Jonn has too much Hamtaro on his hard drive, defending Gundam 0083, if Super Gals can be used for CIA torture on terrorism, music history of Para Para, past ADV properties and much more.

(45:00 – 1:33:12) Closing Remarks: This is the hosts talking about the latest Chris Chan stuff and his supposed girlfriend/being on the NEWS AGAIN, Trump vs. NFL vs. First Amendment rights, how Toys R Us filed Chapter 11 (better article on that found from the angriest otaku out there), old and terrible podcasts, Cowboy Bebop vs. Outlaw Star, shootings in Tennessee, and Dustin trying to chime in while having the hiccups. Also this and more in this episode!

OP – Shibuya ROLL CALL!!!

ED – And well just Para dance our way out of this review…

AoY Podcast #115 – General Discussion Part II: The Hurricane Cast


Also known as: “…AND THAT COMBINATION WITH SEXISM IS WHY I NEEDED TO WRITE THIS POST!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 02:31:24)

So, its been 4 years since we titled our last episode as a “General Discussion” episode, so we figured it’s time for a sequel episode, longer and (un)better than ever! Of course, this is coming out after Hurricane Henry and during Irma, so it’s pretty fitting to release this episode in this manner. This time we are joined by guests Josh and Daft to talk about bad animated/live action movies like Batman and Harley Quinn and Death Note.

(0:00 – 1:19:30) Something of a Review: Batman and Harley Quinn / Death Note – We figured we can just bundle this into one segment with everyone crapping on the live action Americanized Death Note and Batman and Harley Quinn. This comes with discussing what “really” constitutes as rape, how Bruce Timm needs to come clean and make animated Batman porno films, the changes made in Death Note, talking about the Defenders show, Jonn moving back to Poseidon’s Revenge on Texas, and much more.

(1:19:30 – 02:31:24) Closing Remarks – Here the hosts dive right into Dustin banning from Toonzone after over 11 years of (dis)service, the symposium of a pure autistic post on Toonzone, Toonami speculations of upcoming shows in the future, anime on Kickstarter, Gundam dubbing talk and a bunch other nonsense.

Music Selection:

OP – Were gonna “Pod” you like a Hurricane…

AoY Podcast #112 – E3 2017


Also known as:”How you supposed to pronounce that ‘sublubebudequuu?'”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time:1:50:56)

So another year of E3 has come and gone, and Dustin and Jonn are here to talk about it.

(0:00 – 49:35) E3 2017 Review – Bottom Line: Nintendo won it all, everyone else didn’t show up, and Chad Warden couldn’t save Sony either. Dustin and Jonn go into a bit of detail as to why that obvious conclusion came to be, but it doesn’t take an idiot to figure that out. We talk about the games that we look forward too that weren’t announced, dumb DLC add-ons and more.

(49:35 – 1:50:56) Closing Remarks – More was said on closing remarks than on E3, and that should say something. Topics arise like how Chris Chan was on the news again, RIP Adam West, the Danny Phantom shooter, anime we bought, the hate on Barney the Dinosaur, bad movies Dustin doesn’t remember and more.

 

Music Selection:

OP – Looks like Mario and the gang won this year…

ED – Why did we talk about Barney, I dunno…

AoY Podcast #111 – JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Battle Tendency Review


This show has: “I’ll be in support of Daft Censorship”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:48:00)

So Animazement is this weekend, which is where Dustin is going to make his trek once again and needs to put something out this month. So, it’s time for our hosts to combine their Hamon powers into one, by letting this podcast take it’s rightful STAND in reviewing Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Battle Tendency.

(0:00 – 1:18:20) Review: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Battle Tendency – Since its been a few years since we reviewed Phantom Blood, this podcast is able to combine four entities into reviewing Jojo’s once more. But, in a twist of foreseen fate, our guest Daft was a Troll Pillar Man the whole time!! How will Dustin, Jonn and Josh combat this despicable fiend? By basically letting him do whatever he wants to the show.

In all seriousness, Jojo’s ended on Toonami, so the four hosts came together to talk about it. Actually, it was mostly a critique off a Toonzone thread of some mod bashing the show, so there was a lot to say on that. There is also discussions on Chris Chan mummified shirt being discovered, Nazisploitation films, Josh and his experiences with anime clubs, how Mega 64 paid homage to our podcast, 4D theme park rides, and how Disneyland employees handle guests suicide.

(1:18:20 – 1:48:00) Closing Remarks – This gets the hosts talking about if our world will be going to World War 3 again, Jonn buying the new Zelda game, SNES Mini discussion, the History of Buy-Rite Video Games, anime releases coming out soon like Record of Lodoss War and titles from Discotek, and much more.
