It’s that time of year, where con season is upon us. So to kick things off as usual guests Daft and Cloud return to talk about their yearly trek to Anime Boston!
(0:00 – 51:45) The Anime Boston Chronicles: Chapter Cloud – Our resident Precure fanboy Cloud stops by and fills us in on his adventure at Anime Boston, filled with meeting Guest of Honor, buying stuff and places to eat. To find more detail about his experience go to his blog found here. This also has us chiming in on the Sailor Moon panel, places to eat in Boston, failed Adult Swim pilots about Bostonians, Leiji Matsumoto manga releases, which live action movie was worse, prices from dealers like Anime Asylum and the cel market and much more.
(51:45 – 02:44:35) The Anime Boston Chronicles: Chapter Daft – Daft joins in to go into a longer digest of the “other side” of the convention, including hotel wrasslin matches, good artists at artist ally, getting to meet Steve Blum and how he does his panels, Greg Ayres stories (including what parents thought YAOI meant in the early 2000’s), past video players like Juice Box and Game Boy Advance Video, Toonami April Fools talk, arcade games at the con, old anime trading cards, Jonn dog has a nightmare of Daft’s adventures, Sports talk with Daft and Dustin, and much more!
(02:44:35 – 03:02:37) Closing Remarks: Really nothing much was said other than the occasional Peter Fay and Love That Goku tweets, Daft trying to proposition Cloud sister into wrasslin next year, getting educated on what Easter is all about, and why the Pats let Brady literally kiss their superbowl away.

This time we discover the lost imaginary nation of Wakanda and hunt down the interests of a black panther in the Marvel universe with our review of Black Panther.
(0:00 – 57:00) Movies Review: Black Panther – Now that the film as of this episode has broken the one billion dollar box office amount, the highest rated movie on Rotten Tomatoes and is the center of American political social media discussion, both Dustin and Jonn just see the film as another Marvel movie. Both get into the politicized rhetoric of online reviewers who praise this movie, Dustin discusses Death Wish and Mazinger Z Infinity as being far better films than Black Panther, and also discuss what we liked and didn’t like about the film.
(57:00 – 2:23:25) Closing Remarks – It’s once again time for opinions about all the events that has happened in the past month since our last episode, which leaded to discussions about gun control, should teachers be armed, Alex Jones v. CNN v. Youtube, the GRAND RETURN of Love That Goku, Dustin attends the Atlanta SciFi Expo (which as of this post, the website is 404, so that should tell you something) in a ghetto mall, Jonn mentions the Black Lightning show, Toonami boob censorship, latest Chris Chan documentary and much more.

Halloween is celebrated differently by people every year. So what better way for the podcast hosts to have their own different Halloween experiences than to travel to different conventions across America. This time we have Dustin spending a few hours at Banzaicon, and Jonn spending the day at Comikaze.
(0:00 – 48:49) Con-O-Ween Part 1: Comikaze at Los Angeles, California – Jonn and his dad trekked from Arizona to the golden state to hit up Comikaze. Jonn talked about getting exhibitor passes from a local comic book shop, SJW tumblr hate speech, how Stan Lee promotes himself at his own con, the differences between comic vs. anime conventions, comic book vs. video game collecting, Jojo’s talk, partied out Ninja Turtles, the wrong directors for live action anime adaptations, anime to live action talk (mostly about Akira), Demon City Shinjuku, Harmony Gold hate, and much more.
(48:49 – 51:06) Podcast Promo’s – We want to give a personal shout out to Alpha Counter, as their latest episode #150 might be their final podcast episode. But in tribute to this, Dustin brought back an old friend to wish them a proper farewell. Fast Karate should be back eventually with new stuff, but not after streaming twitch things. Anime World Order decides that their next episode is to cover Initial D (“BUT WAIT DARYL, YOU TOLD ME YEARS AGO IN A PAST EPISODE COMMENTS THAT NO ONE ON THE AWO CREW WOULD EVER REVIEW INITIAL D BECAUSE YOU GUYS ALL HATED IT!! OH WAIT, SOMEONE PAID YOU TO REVIEW IT? NOW I SEE WHAT IT REALLY TAKES TO COVER SHUICHI SHIGENO GRAND MANGA MASTERPIECE CGI ANIMOO SERIES!!” – Inner 18 year old “die hard Initial D fanboy attitude” Dustin responding out of spite).
(51:06 – 1:36:50) Con-O-Ween Part 2: Banzaicon at Colombia, South Carolina – Across the great America’s, Dustin was taking his sweet time to get to Banzaicon, which resulted in describing what a convention looks like past 7:30 pm on a Saturday Halloween night. This of course contains how to
sucker convince the con staff to let you and your “panelist” partner in for cheap, playing some well deserved Initial D, guests at the con that Dustin never saw, 1990’s USA Network cartoons, Ani-Monday talk, how to give a yaoi panel some late night competition, and much more.
(1:36:50 – 2:05:27) Closing Remarks – This just continues into Chris Chan PSA on Halloween trans talk, Dustin explains his experience with audibly reading the Lensmen series, Dustin jacks Golgo 13 M-16, book to movie adaptations, and much more.

We figure this would be prompt and timely to release our Halloween special on the same day than for it to be later than that. As of this episode release, both host’s Dustin and Jonn are at their local conventions and will do a report on those in due time. So in order to keep up with tradition, the crew reviews Amon: Apocalypse of Devilman.
(0:00 – 27:30) Halloween Special – Amon: Apocalypse of Devilman Review: If you couldn’t tell from our spoilers from last years Halloween special (if anyone reading this even knew or listened to it), we keep up with our yearly tradition to bring on more Go Nagai Devilman goodness. We probably thought we were gonna do the Devilman TV series at the beginning of the year, but neither host owns the DVD set from Discotek, so screw it, that didn’t happen either. We pretty much run through this anime to talk about the horrors of post-apocalypse Japan, but Dustin couldn’t say to much because he didn’t want to attract too much attention to himself in his school cafeteria when this recording happened, because both hosts thought it was a great idea to record a podcast in a university cafeteria one Tuesday afternoon, to talk about Devilman of all the anime to mention in a public setting. Needless to say, he didn’t get kicked out for reviewing Devilman. We also mention how we saw this on Youtube from the worst translator on the planet, talking about what our buddy Cloud posted on our chat in the middle of recording, and how you should check out the One Pixel Jump review of Devilman as well.
(27:30 – 1:09:48) Closing Remarks: For some reason, the racist on Twitter wanted to get mad at the new Star Wars film because of their white male insecurities, which led to Jonn and Dustin talking about the Star Wars series in general. This also got them to talk about the HOT OFF THE PRESSES information of Chris Chan still not going to jail, followed by a special issue of Sonichu, our local resident fansubber gets a (TRUE AND HONEST) cease and desist notice from Funimation, our current issues with fansubbers out there, people on MAL get mad over the use of “Weeaboo,” both Jonn and Dustin talking about their Halloween convention plans, as well as Dustin panel rejection and approval issues with Banzaicon during the Halloween weekend. All this and much more in this weeks episode.

You can go ahead and consider this episode as a “bonus track” to the Animazement review in the previous episode. This was an audio recording done at the AnimEigo panel for Animazement 2015 that for people who couldn’t be there, are able to hear what was said and discussed for the most part, thanks to Zeonic inability to handle recording it on his phone in a better way.
There isn’t really a need to for a time code in this episode, as the entire thing is the panel itself. Zeonic came in a few minutes late to one question, and had some issues 5 minutes in the panel, which caused some other things not to get on the audio. But for the most part, you should be able to hear what Robert Woodhead has to say and does his best to answer questions. Zeonic himself and Anime Hell’s own Phil Lee ask the hard hitting questions to Robert, meaning the’re the questions you can hear the clearest, just FYI. The other questions involved the mention of Hanzo the Razor, the Otaku no Video Kickstarter project, public enemy own ani-twitter Hazukari asking about Boah, the mention of Minna Agechou, Wizardry, AnimEigo as a company throughout the years, and others asking about the past titles of AnimEigo being possible Kickstarter’s one day. This and a whole lot more were asked in the panel, so check that out! Also, we swear we will release an anime review next episode, you can count on that!
