Well, here we are in the middle of the anime convention season, and already some of us here at the podcast have done our time at these big conventions. This time we have Daft and another guest Cloud to cover their experience at Anime Boston…
(0:00 – 1:19:45) Spring Convention Report – Anime Boston 2015: This is the first of our con reports that will be coming out in the coming weeks, as Daft and Cloud talk about the New England convention of Anime Boston. Daft tells about how it was to talk to Richard Epcar, going to panels hosted by Harmony Gold, Daft hosting his own panel, and that Anime Boston is SECRETLY PART OF A CONSPIRACY TO SHOW OFF IT’S ULTIMATE FORM, STANDING IN LINES!!!! Cloud mentions how he got screwed over in doing a panel, plus the two mention other complaints about the convention regarding from security to disabled people online talking about their gripes with the con. But, aside from that, they both seemed to have fun.
(1:19:45 – 1:52:43) The Lolcow Hour/Closing Remarks: It shouldn’t come to anyone’s surprise that the rest of this time is dedicated to still trying to talk about and uncover more information on Chris(tine) Chan ultimate objective in life.
OP – It took so long to realize this episode needed to come out…
ED – It is the opinion of the entire staff that Chris Chan is criminally insane…

AoY Podcast #69 – Anime in Defense Mode! (SuperFight! Review)
Also known as: “…The weeaboo is so annoying that Alucard just has to kill himself and I win.”

This podcast has been granted a special opportunity for product placement promotion. What I mean by that is the company Skybound was interested in sending us their latest card booster for SuperFight! which is now appearing at Anime Expo. So, this is a whole podcast dedicated to us talking about SuperFight! The Anime Deck. Oh yea, happy ‘murika day too, almost forgot about that…
(0:00 – 39:00) I put my Waifu in DEFENSE MODE!!! SuperFight! Review: This is a basically an episode of Zeonic and Jonn playing a card game over Skype, with the help of the most honorable Judge Dori to decide who is the victor in all 5 rounds of SuperFight! After a few coin tosses and elements of losing clothing at Anime Expo within the game, both contestants came out having a good time, all the while talking about other anime fans out there. This gets us in talking about certain real weeaboos on the internet, why can’t cats pilot Evangelions, and waifu’s affecting Shinigami.
(39:00 – 58:45) Closing Remarks: This is stating some news that broke at Anime Expo about Sentai getting more Gundam series, our podcast adversaries at the Artist of Yaoi Podcast, newest Chris Chan stuff and much more.
OP – Fight, Fight, Gotta SuperFight!
ED – The final SuperFight! has already been won…

This is what we tried to do with Google Hangout… and that failed. Know what, it was for the best…
AoY Podcast #68 – E3 2015 Talkback
Also known as: “Yea Aisha Taylor, your the meme…. congrats!”
Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:17:44)
Every year in California, the Electronic Entertainment Expo becomes that milestone that video game fans look forward too to indicate that summer finally begins. This year was the year that dreams did come true to many fans across the globe, even dreams that us podcast hosts have been waiting for many years.
We really don’t need a time code for this episode, since we stay true to staying on topic on what happened at E3 this year. June 16th, 2015 will mark a milestone date for both Jonn and Zeonic as the day Shenmue 3 was announced that launched a hugely successful Kickstarter that even crashed Kickstarter themselves. This also gets us into talking about dreams coming true for Kingdom Hearts 3, the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, The Last Guardian, and much more. If you can’t tell already, (but let’s break it down for you again), that this podcast totally called out the idea of Shenmue coming to Kickstarter when we were talking with Lisle Wilkerson last year, so we are total trend setters of the gaming industry without anyone really knowing it.
This also gets us into discussing what happened during the other conferences (and how the HoloLens is just Strange Days tech come to life), the breakdown of the Nintendo World Championship 2015, Conkers Bad Fur Day talk, latest with Chris Chan and much more. Also, Josh gives his big plug for his personal blog at Cartoon Historian, where he spends a lot of time researching and writing about early American television animation that is largely forgotten about, and why you should care. He is basically becoming the next generation of Fred Patton without even knowing it.
OP – When Shenmue comes your way, you dream on!!!
ED – These Shenmue dreams go on as I close my eyes…

That was how I felt in that moment too…
So for anyone wanting to know what this game is about, let these drunken Irish developers tell you all about it…
Big question, does this game still hold up almost 2 decades later?

Here we continue more of our discussion of the spring anime season, where Zeonic is absent from this recording as he’s gradually recovering from his crazy weekend at Animazement. However Jonn, Josh and Daft take the reigns to discuss more about not only the anime in the spring, but also from previous anime seasons still going on.
(0:00 – 35:15) Series from previous Anime Seasons Review: The gang talks about shows from both the Fall and Winter anime seasons, both new and continuing with Assassination Classroom, Comical Psychosomatic Medicine, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, I Can’t Understand What My Husband Is Saying, The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-Chan, Nisekoi, and My Teen Romance Comedy Snafu Too. They also discuss sites dedicated to finding everything wrong with professional subtitles, opinions on Haruhi Suzumiya, and much more.
(35:15 – 1:43:02) Spring Anime 2015 List Review: Here is where we review every other anime but Rinne, because that was already covered in our last episode. So for the full list we have Arslan Senki (The Heroic Legend of Arslan TV), Ultimate Otaku Teacher, Is It Wrong To Pick Up Girls In a Dungeon?, Gunslinger Stratos: The Animation, Sound Euphonium, Blood Blockade Battlefront, Ninja Slayer: The Animation, My Love Story!!, Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign, Plastic Memories, Punch Line, Food Wars and Show by Rock!! This also gets the gang into discussion the latest on Chris Chan court dates and how he went to a club, people on Twitter, how Charlie Hebdo was an inside job, general conspiracy theory talk, and much more.
(1:43:02 – 1:59:16) Podcast Zinger: This was pre-review stuff that happened before anyone really started to review anything. This involved discussing Penguins Memory and a past reviewers obsession over it, talking about stuff Josh hasn’t seen, how Daft is too lazy to edit podcasts and doesn’t understand how they work, and much more. (aka, Daft, it does NOT take an hour for me to edit any episode I ever do – Zeonic)
OP – Let’s assassinate this Spring Anime…
ED – And were rocking out to this Spring Anime…
