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.

Well, our March Megazone Madness has come to an end (aka UConn won for those who don’t care about NCAA basketball). One might imagine the joy of ending an OVA trilogy such as this would be a moment of happiness, but all we can tell you is we are just glad the nightmare is over. With two great OVA titles under the Megazone 23 name, you might figure making The Third one would be a greater achievement. Well, we found out the hard way, as Zeonic, Jonn and Josh crawl out of the ruins of Megazone 23 The Third.
Time codes (yea, we had to use these again)
0:00 – 19:05: We pretty much do our usual fare again, by getting off topic since it has been more than 3 weeks since we last recorded something. We deviate off the ZONE by talking about Space Ghost Coast to Coast airing on Adult Swim April Fools Special and the episodes that we happen to see in a half sleep trance, people we know online who watch terrible shows and takes forever to get to their point, and the problems of modern anime fans taste in shows.
19:05 – 1:05:25: We finally decide to talk about our subject matter in this podcast, because the nail had to be re-hammered into the Megazone coffin once more. One has to wonder, how can someone royally screw up an anime series after making 2 other anime OVA’s that were not complete and utter crap? Does anyone know the answer to that? If you do, please enlighten us. This dull Shadowrun/Last Starfighter knockoff has some good ideas, and has things I like; but that feel over the edge and beyond Zone Zero with the mistakes we will mention in this episode to finally close out this classic OVA series. You can expect HARD ON’s, C(U)MING FROM THE REAR, floppy disks, redneck friends, cat ear girls, the 80’s accessories, and how too HACK DA PLANET!!!! at 2 frames a second. We also throw in Homosexual/Anime Con Sign Discrimination, why Aramaki gets to keep making anime, and a few other things.
1:05:25 – 1:26:11: We also finish things up with our final remarks about people who don’t have their priorities in order, people with crazy 9/11 conspiracy stories, and the ongoing legacy of Love_That_Goku. All this and more, as usual.

I try and demonstrate how to be like Eiji in Megazone 23 The Third (alcohol was involved in my decision.)
As illustrated by Doomstink, there is a potential future for the floppy disk to rise again.

Were taking a brief detour break from our Gundam month, because well… we don’t have Turn A Gundam ready yet, or even recorded. However, I’ve had these ‘leftovers’ of recording material for months now that I just didn’t know what to do with all of them. So, I decided to just COMBINE THEM ALL IN ONE EPISODE!! That’s right guys, I was really lazy and just put 4 previous, unedited, recordings into one podcast episode, because I think that might be the best course of action. I should warn, this is close to the 6 HOUR MARK!!! So, I don’t expect anyone to sit through this whole thing at once (god help you if you do.)
I am, however, nice enough to give time sections to what we talked about, so if you wanna skim to a certain point or you wanna know where we are at (which, we don’t even know where were at most of the time), look at the time on the episode and see if it corresponds with the time on whats written below.
Also, I will issue a challenge to anyone who can listen to this whole episode by the time our next episode comes out. Whoever is the first to comment on this post saying they did it, will get my thanks for wasting your time listening to this podcast. Or… I’ll think of something legit, I dunno. So, here we go:
0’00-1’33-ish: This was recorded sometime in October of 2012 with our last podcast. This is us discussing the Black Dynamite show/movie with our “internet correspondent” DaftPunkFan, which he also gives his tale at Another Anime Convention 2012. We also go off topic to talk about Disney shows, and me defending/discussing late 1990’s MTV cartoons. And Daft talks about Eden of the East for a bit also.
1’33’30-1’48’17: Me and Jonn decide to critique a podcast episode at Toon Radio Science. I think critiquing is the appropriate term. Recording back in January…something.
1’48’17-3’34’40: This was our CN Upfront discussion that was announced like late January/early February with Daft, Josh, Jonn and I. We also talked a bit about Hulk Hogan and Check it Out! on Adult Swim, along with other things.
3’34’40-5’49’47 :I sat this one out as Jonn, Josh and Daft talked about DC/Marvel properties such as Death of the Family, Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H, Ultimate Spider-Man, and Superman/Batman Apocalypse. They mention some guy who stalks people on AIM, as well as other things.
Site Disclaimer: I wanted to also point out, i’m working on a new podcast header, so I hope you’ll enjoy it. Ill keep this one up for now, but since i’m on spring break, ill have more time to tweak it a bit.
