Tis the Season to be down for a post-apocalyptic beatdown, where this time Dustin and Jonn travel to 198x once again to see how Christmas went down in Fist of the North Star Arc 4!

(0:00 – 1:07:38) Review: Fist of the North Star Arc 4 – After almost 4 years since we last talked about Hokuto no Ken, it’s time both hosts went head strong and battled for our lives against the Ken-Oh Army! This isn’t intended as a holiday special, but it seemed perfect to add this review into the show 4 months after it was first recorded back in August…..something. Both hosts tell their tales on how they got the ultimate set for the retail value of a 2002 ADV DVD, which gives you listeners almost another 100 episodes (maybe) before you might get a review from us on Hokuto no Ken 2 . If the story of Jesus is considered The Greatest Story Ever Told, then consider this climatic end to Fist of the North Star as the greatest story ever told, except on Christmas cuz baby Jesus has gotta come first. Both host also talk about dumb people on the internet, the new iPhone (from 4 months ago), anime forum stupidity, who Jacob T. Paschal really is and his secret buying habits (U NO IM RITE!),and more. (Oh yea, the audio in this is pretty garbage, but oh well, not gonna talk about Fist for a while, so just suck it up!)

Promo: I know its the holiday season, but i’m not gonna add in an audio piece this time for Anime Cart or RightStuf because those last two podcast promos I did explain all of that. But since your not gonna listen to them (like I know your not), for Anime Cart just type in the promo code AOYPODCAST when you check out something you want, which gives you a bit of a discount for this holiday season…. and any time after that. Just use your grandma’s money to pay for that Attack on Titan statue you really want, or didn’t but now you do!

(1:07:38 – 1:33:45) Closing Remarks: Seeing how this information is old as dirt, its about when Youtube was doing crackdown on monitization videos, Gundam stuff, both hosts having connection issues (which for the most part is fine now), and much more. Stay tuned for the holiday zinger brought to you by Sean Ryan and Kevin Gray.

Music Selection:

OP – How to have Christmas in the Post-Apocalypse…

ED – Fist, you were able to ease my long pain after all…

AoY Podcast #79 – Con-O-Ween Special (Comikaze & BanzaiCon 2015 Report)


 

Stan-Lee-s-Comikaze-ExpoAlso known as: “Dude, it’s Ultraman, you know how to say it!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 2:05:27)

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.

OP – It was the Con-Ster-Mash…

AoY Podcast #73 – Taking on Indiegogo Perks #1 (The Legend of Black Heaven Review)


51642YJXA1L

Also known as: “Hard Rock TO SAVE TEH SPACE!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time – 55:30)

Hey, remember when we used to do anime reviews? Yea, the gang vaguely remembers doing them also. But hey, were back on the anime beat, and this time we start to cover those Indiegogo perks we promised at the early part of the year. This time we got a request from Sean Ryan from the Alpha Counter podcast to issue us the most rockin anime out there, The Legend of Black Heaven.

Again, we don’t need no time codes for this episode, since it was Zeonic and Sean sitting in the middle of a back ally hallway of the Marriott late Saturday night during Animazement. This is also where frequent con goers and hotel staff kept coming by us during the recording, which was near the most desired restroom in the entire hotel mind you, so you’ll hear zingers of that at the end of the episode. The Legend of Black Heaven is an anime Zeonic has always heard good things about over the years, and finally had the chance to watch and thoroughly enjoy this OVA. Even though Black Heaven is more relatable to people reaching their Logan’s Run age expiration date and beyond, anyone can pick up this title and enjoy it, wither you are musically inclined or not. This would also be this podcast second review of anime based off music, since our first one was about To-Y 2 years ago. Of course, you can expect some “sidebar” discussions about anime Terry Crews, talking about music in general, how american football is really “handegg,” Masters of the Universe movie synopsis, and Zeonic gets the hiccups. All this and much more in this this weeks episode…

Music Selection:

OP – Get ready to go backstage with Zeonic and Sean

ED – The moral of this anime is, don’t start a band…

This show has:

Dunno why Zeonic first thought of anime Terry Crews was in Friday After Next, but that is how his pimp mind works sometimes…

And you wonder why the Japanese have a hard time understanding Americans…

In general, AMV’s are the worst way to promote a show to make someone think it’s going to be great. However, this AMV is an exception, just go see Black Heaven already.

Per request by Sean Ryan…


AoY Podcast #71 – SpringCon 2015 Part B (Animazement 2015 Review)

This shall be our last part of our major spring convention reports, where this time Zeonic will talk about his yearly east coast trek to the North Carolina convention, Animazement, opposite the Dixie Line from Daft’s Anime Boston report.

(0:00 – 59:29) Spring Convention Report: Animazement 2015 Part A – This convention to Zeonic can be compared to the little kid who goes to Disneyland every year. Every visit there is always something new to discover and new people to encounter, and this con is no different. Zeonic tells his tales of meeting fellow ani-twitters at the con, people who sell terrible anime themed t-shirts, anime cels, the Shinichiro Wantanabe panel playing the wrong DVD, playing Initial D in the arcade room, Anime Hell, chilling with Micheal Sinterniklass and Robert Woodhead, Vic Mignogna vs. gay people and more…

(59:29 – 1:02:14) Podcast Promo’s – If no one out there believes that Alpha Counter holds any power in the anime industry, then you should know that their review of Mysterious Girlfriend X came out the same week as Vertical Inc announcement for the manga. Conspiracy?… you bet Sherlock. Daily Anime Podcast is still on the Legend of Galactic Heroes episode synopsis reviews, and it won’t be too long before you can own your copy of the entire series. Dave and Joel just recently put out an episode, except it’s not about Jojo’s this time, but vidjer gaemz.

(1:02:14 – 1:32:23) Spring Convention Report: Animazement 2015 Part B – This is where Zeonic gets into the “real” fun of Raleigh N.C. during the convention, where the ultimate destination is to get liquored up in secret bars across town, only to go hang out with your best podcast bud to record Indiegogo perks and show up to dating panels ran by immature high school kids. This also the part where Cloud starts to constantly sneeze for some reason, how dealers put in noise complaints over band practice next door, spending time helping friends out in the dealers room, the book in question I got signed, and where to get the best burger at a Wendy’s on the way home…

(1:32:23 – 2:04:46) Closing Remarks/The Nintendo 3DS Troubleshooting Podcast – Here we got into talking about us once again, doing an episode about our backstory, which mark my words will happen one day. Also, we find out that Chris(tine) Chan sprouts some bullcrap about how Sonichu’s are born and how he/she breast are now speakers at raves, meeting random drunk people on the streets of Raleigh to talk about anime with (and how Charlotte dun give a fuk!), and how we decide to waste time finding out our friend codes on a Nintendo 3DS, plus just talking about Pokemon for no reason. All this and much more in this weeks episode…

If you want to know our Nintendo 3DS friend codes as we so casually spoke upon in our closing remarks, here they are in this post for you to join us if you care to do so:

Zeonic: 2638 2954 5455
Jonn: 1435 4307 2269

This review was a long time coming, even before Jonn and Zeonic started this podcast. This is also the first movie review of the year, which does tie into an anime by the same name, so were not that off our beat guys!! Of course the gang can’t do this film review alone, and had to reach out to Sean Ryan from the Alpha Counter podcast to form our own beatbox gang as we journeyed our way through the L.A. ghetto with the 1991 film, The Guyver.

(0:00 – 52:25) Animoovie Review: The Guyver: This film comes from a time in the 1990’s when film companies got licenses (or didn’t more than likely) to anime titles in order to adapt them into live action format with the shoe-string budgets they had to work with. The results varied (mostly poor), but this film seemed to be that first pioneer from manga to the film reel in America. With Zeonic, Jonn and Sean forming our hip hop gang, we trek through the film encountering rapping monsters, corrupt CEO’s, making things work by bashing your head onto them, taking 8 hours to get lunch, how NOT to fight, and Luke Skywalker working for the G Man. We do our best to stay on topic, but run into trouble when it comes to certain off topic agendas.

(52:25 – 1:06:42) Closing Remarks: There was nothing short about wrapping up our podcast, not when we discuss the latest news about Chris Chan Guerrilla War against Sega, Sean trip to Orlando, and Zeonic calling out Regan.

(1:06:42 – 1:15:41) Bonus Material: This was even more off-topic stuff that Zeonic just left at the end for a stinger, which included people who can’t use headphones, and finding out what films Paul Chapman has reviewed. All this and more in this weeks episode.

OP – When you see text scrolling, you know your in for a treat…

ED – All in all, this movie is a good time…
