AoY Podcast #126 – Outlaws vs. Cowboys: The Bebop Stars of Space


Also known as: “The Beau Billingslea Power Hour on Toonami!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 3:05:30)

We talk about the two biggest titans in the galaxay among anime fans in the early 2000’s, where we review Outlaw Star and Cowboy Bebop!

(0:00 – 45:40) Review: Outlaw Star – This podcast episode is the historic record of the pinnacle of what was important to anime fans on Cartoon Network starting from 2001 and beyond. Outlaw Star was a big anime among the viewers of Toonami, and Dustin heard about this show for years until he finally saw the series shown on Toonami recently for the first time. Both hosts Jonn and Dustin and special guest Daft chime in to talk about the overview of the series with some spoilers thrown in. This also includes how its vital importance that Jonn dad tells Jonn in the call that the dog is eating cheese off the floor, the stupidity of Transformers cartoons, Outlaw Star merch in America, FLCL revival talks, will Hamtaro be on Toonami for Aprils Fools Night? (as of this writing, Adult Swim showed FLCL Alternative subtitled on TV, followed by Mind Game, and a bunch of the regular block airing in the same format, because I’m writing this about 1am on April Fools night – Dustin), Toonami censorship on TV and much more.

(45:40 – 1:39:00) Review: Cowboy Bebop – This episode marks the 20th anniversary since the anime first aired on TV Tokyo, and how it later showed up that late summer on the new Adult Swim block on Cartoon Network in 2001. Both hosts recant how much of an impact Bebop has had on them as anime fans all these years later, including the merch that’s out there (you can find the pdf of the Bebop Anime Guides here at my blog – Dustin). This goes into account what particular episode got Dustin involved in Bebop, our top 3 Bebop episodes, the TV edits, and a whole lot more!

(1:39:00 – 3:05:30) Closing Remarks – This is chock full of material that covers for the month of March since we last recorded, including how Love that Goku got social services on his butt, Linkara leaving TGWTG and the twitter thread full of the company drama, Meson in dire need, the fully funded Kickstarter for Gunsmith Cats, The Toys That Made Us Netflix Documentary series, Dustin con talks on Toylanta and SC Comic Con, RIP Toys R Us/southern food stores/Return of KB Toys, the Mystery of Miami Mike finally solved by The Anime Nostalgia Podcast and the stupid weeaboo drama that follows on the ANN Forums, Dustin mentions his thoughts on Pacific Rim 2, and much more!

AoY Podcast #125 – Wakandan Panther Review


 

Also known as: “I will kick the tree over right into the [sic] ground and climb it horizontally…”

 

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 2:23:25)

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.

AoY Podcast #124 – Wing of the Union Special (Gundam Wing RightStuf Special)


Also known as: “Anime is Real… AAAAHHHHHH!!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 02:39:34)

It’s once again time to bust out another RightStuf product review, intermixing with American politics. This time we have Mobile Report Gundam Wing… AGAIN!

(0:00 – 58:20) Review: Mobile Report Gundam Wing (PART DEUX) – It’s been about five years since we last talked about Gundam Wing, so if you account what was said then and now, you’ll get the most in depth Gundam Wing review in the history of ever. This was Dustin re-watch of a series he hasn’t laid eyes on in 18 years, and boy was it ever the trip through time for him. This review is more of the in depth political spectrum review of Gundam Wing, which the politics were never understood by ANYONE who watched this on Toonami 18 years ago. This also includes the acting roles of Campbell Lane, why Wing was popular on Toonami, shout outs to Daily Anime Podcast and the secret episode that NEVER WAS, Dustin reasons for cutting back on liquor, and a whole lot more.

(58:20 – 02:39:34) The “State-Of-The-Union” Closing Remarks – To anyone who heard or saw the American State of the Union address, both Jonn and Dustin give their accounts and rants on what was said, seen, and about American politics in general. This should come to no one surprise to those who ever listened to a single second of this podcast closing remarks, because politics comes up in the discussion all the time. This also includes Ghost TCR commentary, Dustin breaks out his inner Alex Jones once again, the life of Barron Trump, Goof Troop discussion, The Legacy of South Carolina Senator Strom Thurmond, cryptocurrency rants, the 2018 State of the Podcast address, and much more.

AoY Podcast #123 – High School Agent Review


Also known as: “I blame you Hallmark… You turned my dog into an Imperial Theme!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:41:52)

What better way to kick off the start of 2018 with an anime that hardly no one has seen or even reviewed yet, because if you did know it, we’d have to kill you for knowing too much. This time we talk about High School Agent!

(0:00 – 43:15) Review: High School Agent – This is an anime with no Wikipedia entry, hardly nothing about it on MAL, and very little info on ANN. Only a lone fansub group has made it a priority to make this available online to whoever can find it. It’s so top secret, the UN might have to intervene in this podcast. It’s basically an OVA adaptation of a manga about a dumb high school kid who becomes a secret agent for the United Nations. Instead of stopping people behind genocide, world hunger and sex trafficking, its about stopping people who have priceless stones and neo-Nazis after Hitler’s gold. Those are way more serious international issues than what most people complain about, because High School Agent knows what’s really at stake in the world! This also includes talks about terrible commercial airline companies, how not to kill a bear, and what type of jungles exist in South America.

(43:15 – 1:41:52) Closing Remarks – This goes into the doxing of a troll gone too far towards Chris Chan, the recent American Government shutdown, Dustin pulls a cans.wav and almost breaks his headset from a birthday card, Ghost talk, past podcasts that no longer exists from Toonradio, Go Nagai shows to be remade other than Devilman Crybaby, the recent Jumanji movie and much more.

Music Selection:

OP – This podcast will self destruct in 5 seconds to this annoying song…

ED – Take this airline job and shove it!

This show has:

Richard Spencer future daughter?

A Luger cannot win against a freggin bear…

A SJW fantasy to cold cock a Nazi…

AoY Podcast #122 – The Dark Side Christmas Special (Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review)


Also known as: “What planet grows grey tomato’s… THAT ARE ROCKS!?”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 4:27:09)

Happy New Year!!! 2018 will be our year and savior for humanity until such time when social media says its the worst year ever (like the end of every year on Twitter). So what better way to reign in the new year with our hosts ranting about Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

(0:00 – 2:40:15) The Dark Side Review! Star Wars: The Last Jedi – This film seems to be equally split between those who love and hate this film, just like the balance of the force. Dustin, Jonn and guest Vekou (who shows up about 45 minutes in) state their views on the film. As you can expect, spoilers are afoot in great detail. This lets us compare the Star Wars films to the Fast and Furious film series, how Jonn dog spoke up for animal rights on this film, how Disney can royally screw up a beloved science fiction series, and much more!

(2:40:15 – 4:27:09) Christmas Closing Remarks – This was recorded the next night with Jonn and Dustin keeping the mics warm on a post Christmas night, and more sound proof for Dustin since he recorded in his “sound proof” safe space closet (making his mic sound louder in the process). The remarks include bathroom gender rules, Dustin panels at Big Fandom Greenville, more Star Wars talk, what we got for Christmas, upcoming AnimEigo Kickstarters, video game talk, James Bond talk, Dustin Christmas movies he saw this year, 80’s cartoon themes and the goofyness of Voltron, Chris Chan and Ghost talk, the fall of Bitcoin and so much more!
