With 2021 bringing back larger conventions again, Dustin and Jonn talk about their experiences with Anime Weekend Atlanta and Phoenix Toy Con.

(0:00 – 1:08:28) Convention Reports 2021: Jonn hits the ground running with what he did at Phoenix Toy Con the same time Dustin was at Anime Weekend Atlanta. While Jonn was getting great stuff like Bloodstained on the Nintendo Switch and other great comic goodies, Dustin was getting his moment in the spotlight with a grand AMV win at the VAT Exposition contest along with an award at Youmacon AMV Contest all at the same time. Both get into topics about Marvel films, Covid guidelines between the two conventions, things we bought and #LetsGoBrandon. Dustin goes extensively on how his Initial D and B.A.D. panels went, navigating the horrendous Atlanta 285 construction/World Series traffic, meeting industry peeps like Carl Horn, picking up import games of such anime series at random, sleeping at different places with different peoples cats, reading off crappy Evangelion poetry, playing Initial D Zero in the arcade, seeing Tiffany Grant again, Anitubers who rant against AWA because of questionable panels, and much more!

(1:08:28 – 1:59:39) Closing Remarks (i.e. more Chris “Jebuzz Sanix blu hart” Chan prison letters) – This is really self explanatory, this is how we spent our time Reading. These. Letters. Anything with other politics was very brief.
