So before Dustin heads off to Animazement for another year, he has decided to put out a bonus episode where he brings on Nick from The Arcade Hunters to specifically talk about the arcade culture behind the Initial D Arcade Stage game. This of course doesn’t really happen till about 45 or so minutes into the recording, since the beginning was full of anime to arcade games and vice versa talk. They also mention subjects like Sega in general, the arcade culture between Japan and America, anime discussions, bad arcade anime, how Dustin and Nick got into Initial D, Toys R Us retail talk and so much more.

Man, when was the last time we had an episode under and hour? Well, Good Friday was well over a week ago, and so was the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ (for those who don’t celebrate that pagan bunny and chocolate egg corporate holiday.) We decided to give what we can back to the christian community on this glorious (and very late) day; by simply talking about how Christianity “really” wen’t down in feudal Japan in the most extremely (in)accurate documentary called Ninja Resurrection.
Ninja Resurrection tells the tale of how God’s chosen Japanese people rose against the Tokugawa Shogunate, by having dragons from the divine lord be summoned upon the unbelievers, having daddy issues, taking on anime Gary Busey, the crying blood Virgin Mary, and a lot of SATAN! Of course, we go off topic on subjects like convention talk, general talk on anime series that are coming out in Japan and American TV, how Christianity is portrayed in anime and around Japan, movies around the bible that are out now and a whole lot more.
This show has:
This is something you CAN show to your local church… if they got nothing against anime that is…

Today is “Single Awareness Day” (or what the non-nerds call it “Valentines Day“), and to some of you listening to our podcast, are probably yet again as single as one could never hope. But fret not listener, because here at the Anime of Yesteryear Podcast, we are ones too never leave a man (or woman) all alone. We decide to take this opportune day to give back to you listeners out there, by reading off (mostly) the comments we have received over the past year.
Time codes (yea, I decided to do this to make following us a bit easier):
0:00-7:02: It’s pretty much us getting set up and dicking around (as usual) with talking about people who lost their plumbing in their house, demonic dryers in the background and probably other dumb things
7:02-1:20:00: We go ahead and read off our comments covering from our Aliens: Colonial Marines review from last year to our most recent anime collecting episode. We go off on tangents like movies that are kinda long to watch, how Zeonic is terrible with podcast funds and spends those on himself (i.e. EBAY WHY YOU GOTTA USE PAYPAL ALL THE TIME?), and a whole lot more I didn’t write down on my notes when I went to edit this episode. Oh yea, Cody is our number one fan on this podcast, because we mostly read off his comments, because he mostly comments.
1:20:00-1:49:15: Jonn and Zeonic get to blow off mass amount of steam and laugh our butts off at how wonderfully terrible Sword Art Online has become since we last talked about it in October or so. We can assume that it has to be one of Toonami’s best comedy shows on the block, because I have never laughed so hard talking about an anime in a really long time. Oh yea, Archer Vice is where its at.
1:49:15-2:25:44: We then get to talk about the other shows on Toonami, like how One Piece is getting REEEEALLY good in the Water 7 arc, Josh and Jonn discuss the other shows on the block and how they are doing, Clint Eastwood is cool with JoJo’s, and we discuss our thoughts on how great a show like Space Dandy is coming together. We then end it off with closing remarks of people on twitter who don’t want to sell sushi, how Chris Chan’s coffee maker started the fire, Josh won a Toonami T-shirt, and weeaboo’s in school. Of course, all this and more.

If there is one part of being a human being we are all guilty of is the fact that we accumulate items in our lives that will one day be forgotten about, unless it somehow ends up in a museum. We also like to define accumulation with a less offensive term we like to call “collecting.” Here at the AoY podcast, we are completely guilty in that area, and heck, even wanna share our stories on how we got the things we have obtained over the years. And to join us in our audio journey is up and coming podcaster Dawn of The Anime Nostalgia Podcast, as we embark our journey through the cluttered shelves of anime nostalgia throughout our lives as anime fans.
And like the usual fare, we also go off topic on things like why cats are crazy, VIC MIGNOGANOAAAH, Xbone gets an orgasm and works, Sailor Moon talk, autograph stories, talk about our video games, AUDIO ISSUES (which my part of talking about Haruhiko Mikimoto was cut out, but that story was on last years Animazement review,) Tenchi Talk, Gundam talk and a ton more gurl-ish gossip to come.
Oh yea, on a darker note, we got us a tumblr account now. Man… this site is reeeeeeeally eff’d up, I mean really.

The commercial that gave 8 year old me nightmares…
Also known as: ” Man, whats dis? I can’t do nothin wit toys!”
In the state of South Carolina at this time of year, there are 3 main events that will take place: College Footbal season, hunting season, and Rednecks that are obsessed with both of those things at the same time. But, their is one element that got looked over, that deep in the heart of Gamecock territory, lies an event where people outside those main festivities come to make one of their own. That event is BanzaiCon, a once a year mass of nerds as they congregate and fill the halls of the Marriot hotel in downtown Colombia SC. I had to tread on such event…. because I had panels and nerd stuff to show.
BanzaiCon was a fun way to kill a Saturday other than doing university homework and slipping into that mayhem of my academic responsibility. Even though I was there for one day, it was worth my time to showcase the panels I did for this event, which were Gundam-ology 101: Gundam for Beginners and the dreaded 18+ panel (that was an almost packed panel room) “What the Heck? Moments in Anime”. But like any good con adventure, this was also filled with my failed attempts to hit on cosplayers, meeting up with people and chillin, people who got their stuff jacked in the parking deck, car issues, getting to talk to VA’s, cats that ruin podcast recordings, and a whole lot more stuffed into this episode.

Jonn and I were guest stars on The Nine Hells of Anime Podcast to talk about our favorite Yoshiaki Kawajiri anime OVA, Goku: Midnight Eye. This is mine and Jonn’s second attempt at reviewing this anime, because we love it that freaking much. I stated to Fino that we gotta come back if they were to ever review Crying Freeman, because damn… that is another anime I know Jonn and I will talk extensively about in detail.
Also known as: “Wait, how does… oh its Chuck Norris!”
This is another episode of nothing really to review, but a few things to talk about. Jonn and I are aware of the Fall 2013 anime season, and decided to talk about some of the shows that might interest us and others to stay away from. But, we first bring up big news on AnimEigo Kickstarter for Bubblegum Crisis on BluRay, and some of the backstory as to how it got out “too the public” per se. I also mention some differences between the Tokyo 2040 and OVA dubs.
We also mention Gundam stuff, movies that are coming out, stuff that we have bought recently, Walking Dead Season 3 on Netflix, me playing with our new family kitten (ie telling it to stop being a cat as I was recording), and me pigging out on Domino’s Pizza during the recording (which is why I sound like such a fatty). All this and more in this weeks podcast.
