What better way to celebrate Mothers Day than not only being a month over due on an episode, but two animes that really emphasize the importance of mothers with Aura Battle Dunbine and Panzer World Galient.
(0:00 – 47:25) Review: Aura Battler Dunbine – After a 3 year hiatus on this segment, we kick it off strong with another highly talked about Yoshiyuki Tomino series involving the world of Dunbine. We rate Tomino’s view on moms as a poor score since all women are always insane and no amount of Bright slapping can correct that action. This gets into how Dustin thought the series name came from this star, how Wings of Rean will be on our list of titles to talk about, but you can hear an already better review of that over at the AWO Podcast, Votoms talk, old anime to be licensed talk and more.
(47:25 – 1:15:40) Closing Remarks – Jonn warns the listener to avoid a movie titled “The Dead One,” The films by Barry Mahon, talking about old porno films for some reason, Joe “CreepinOnKidz” Biden and much more.
(1:15:40 – 1:17:32) Right Stuf Promo
(1:17:32 – 1:58:25) Review: Panzer World Galiant – A lesser known title from Takahashi, but nevertheless, one worth mentioning when it comes to his works. We rate Takahashi view on moms as a great score since part of this story plot is about getting your mom back from a creepy space conehead guy. This also includes the Shrek movie series, some bad review of Galiant on MAL, the Votoms series being released in the states, and much more.
(1:58:25 – 2:36:49) Closing Remarks – This includes the dramatic tale of Andy Warski and his dumbass exploits in the heart of Orlando, The Ghost Show talk, latest opinions of Chris Chan material, how Dustin and his buddy had a hand in shutting down an illegal purse seller at a sketchy flea market, and much more.

We could’t go through the month of March without posting up something for you guys, so we’ve decided to just bunch everything into a super sized podcast double feature of Alita: Battle Angel and Gundam NT.
(0:00 – 1:02:10) Review: Alita: Battle Angel – Hitting off one of the super anime type movies for the month of February is the acclaimed Alita film, which did not get the type of negative feedback like Ghost in the Shell got a while ago. Both Dustin and Jonn go into the film and compare the film setting to what was used from the manga/anime. This also gets them talking about other fine films from Robert Rodriguez, the future of upcoming “soon to be” anime-to-live action films, don’t ever buy a Mitsubishi Mirage and much more.
(1:02:10 – 2:32:03) Closing Remarks from early March: These are more recent discussions from when we recorded this segment at the beginning of this month, to include topics such as Dustin going to AgamaCon and SC Comicon, chilling with Tiffany Grant (EDIT: Check our Review section for our Tiffany Grant interview because the audio link to the Tiffany Grant interview showed up on iTunes instead of our real podcast episode, so hopefully by removing the link that was here before that should get things fixed), getting to meet WWF wrasslers, Dustin chair breaks mid-recording, the Meson saga update, the epic Joe Rogan/Alex Jones Return episode talk(aka SCREW YOU JONES, WE OUT DID THE LENGTH OF THAT PODCAST SUCKAHHH!), Dustin and Josh troll Ghost on his new show, RIP Jan Micheal Vincent and Keith Flint and much more.
(2:32:03 – 2:33:14) Rightstuf Promo
(2:33:14 – 3:17:30) Review: Gundam NT Narrative – This was recorded at the end of February, which cinematic time wise it’s what came next in theaters after Alita. This particular film was a first for Gundam in America, since it’s the only Gundam property to make it to the big screen (and did so successfully than say another film), but was meet rather poorly, at least to Dustin point of view when he was awake during the film. Both Jonn and Dustin had different ideas on what the film could’ve been, which Dustin would’ve been fine with a Kelly’s Heroes Gundam type movie the way it should’ve been. This also discuss the biggest Unicorn podcasters in the past few years, some Alita talk and much more.
(3:17:30 – 4:54:19) Closing Remarks: Only a handful of things to discuss in this one, but one in particular just made us a pure VICtim to the online drama surrounding the whole #KickVic fiasco. This also includes shady Filipino eBay people, our thoughts on that Green New Deal bouncing around out there, RightStuf Gundam talk, what would America be like if John McAfee got elected as our next president and much more.

This review was a long time coming, but now Jonn and Dustin travel among the starts with the baddest babes in the galaxy with their review of Sol Bianca.
(0:00 – 1:17:30) Review: Sol Bianca OVA’s – It seems fitting to put out one of Dustin favorite anime OVA’s on his birthday, which was briefly mentioned in an early episode of our podcast years ago, and now you’ll get a full review of that. Dustin and Jonn get into fanboy-esqe review territory on talking about the original OVA’s for Sol Bianca, which if you haven’t seen this gem its worth a visit! This includes Dustin backstory on why he’s such a fanboy over Sol Bianca, his personal disgust with the Tekken The Movie anime (which it’s gonna happen as a review one day, don’t worry folks – Dustin), Dustin being on the old One Pixel Jump podcast to talk about Bubblegum Crash, The AoY Detective’s get on the beat on when DID Evangelion come out on VHS, a brief RightStuf Promo and much more!
(0:00 – 2:08:52) Closing Remarks – This gets things started with recent Chris Chan drama news, Alex Jones being fake indoctrined into the Proud Boys, Dustin talks about the Bumblebee movie, Micheal Bay and Transformers talk, what we got from Christmas, Jonn talk about the latest Pokemon Switch game, Ghost (NOT)quits the internet once again, and much more!

Merry Christmas Listeners! We decided to go big with our yearly Christmas special to talk about the anime that starts with the letter V, as in Voltes V!
(0:00 – 1:23:25) Review: Voltes V (Filipino Dub) – With the upcoming release of Voltes V soon to come out from Discotek, Dustin was able to get the big hookup from Dave Merrill at AWA for the Honest and True English Dub of Voltes V that can only come from the great island nation of the Philippines. We go into spoiler territory, but that should stop absolutely NO ONE from watching this show on their own accord. This gets us into talking about the show history in the Philippines, how Dustin thought one of the characters was a Sesame Street character, fanfiction writers like Sephirothslave and the web 1.0 era, the Romance Robot Trilogy, pre show remarks on making fun of Anime Superhero Discord stuff and much more!
(1:23:25 – 01:45:51) Holiday Closing Remarks – Dustin wanted the world to know about the greatest anime holiday episode in anime, and that is episode 44 of Brave Exkaiser. Seriously, go and watch it, its got ripped Santa! This also gets into talking about that new Vice movie, politics, comic book talk, how George “Herbie Dubbya” Bush died, Chris Chan proves that his mom isn’t dead, Love That Goku reaction to the Goku float in the Macy’s Parade, Dustin going to the Wally Gator Bowl and more.

It’s per tradition that we release convention reports half a year after the con happened, because oh freaking well. So if your wanting someone to drone on about their time at a con that you weren’t at during a long holiday flight or drive, we got your covered!
(0:00 – 1:34:15) Animazement 2018 Con Report – Dustin regales his tale of a con that happened when the weather was a whole lot warmer, where the first time in years he is a regular con lackey roaming the hallways and not dealing with patrons in the dealers room. Stories can be told about hanging out with other Otaku he’s know about online and their posse, Dustin old parking job and the economics surrounding that industry, modifying your SNES, getting sweet swag from Limited Run Games on a yearly visit, trying to talk to women at the bar with a Salvador Dali art work on their back, the dreaded bootleg dealer came back, rednecks whining about stuff they don’t have in public restaurants, drunken dads that roam the cons and more. This also includes how we thought the Starbucks training lead to other problems, seeing a Steely Dan/Doobie Bros concert in Atlanta, video game and anime talk, and much more.
(1:34:15 – 02:25:29) Closing Remarks Part 1 – This is just the opinions of ours relating back in May, that people have already forgotten about but ohwellwhocaresanyways. This includes televangelists who buy jets in the name of Jesus and Christianity talk, hot takes on the news, how Rosanne got cancelled and much more.
(02:25:29 – 04:03:30) Anime Weekend Atlanta 2018 Con Report – If anything was lacking from Animazement, AWA made that up tenfold. Dustin recants his experience by hanging out with his buddy downtown to ride on electric scooters after eating some Pho’King amazing food, getting the correct panelist badge, meeting with old friends, meeting cool people like Tim Eldred, Micheal Sinterniklaas, Darius Washington and Andy Field, talking about panels done at the convention (which were titled Anime in High Gear, Christianity in Anime and Mobile Suit Gundam in America), buying Neil Nadelman old Gundam laserdiscs, getting the sweet hookup on Voltes V from Dave Merrill, getting to meet the Corn Pone man himself in person, people who have seizures at the con and how the staff handles that proper, Is Daryl Surat a Pokemon Seizure Episode Denier that it was ALL A CONSPIRACY? and more.
(04:03:30 – 04:29:48) Closing Remarks Part 2 – Somehow we get into closing remarks territory with the past pre-hearing of the Kavanaugh case, banned episodes of Pokemon, general anime and politics talk, people who had complaints on panels at AWA from an alt-right perspective and more.
