AoY Podcast #122 – The Dark Side Christmas Special (Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review)


Also known as: “What planet grows grey tomato’s… THAT ARE ROCKS!?”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 4:27:09)

Happy New Year!!! 2018 will be our year and savior for humanity until such time when social media says its the worst year ever (like the end of every year on Twitter). So what better way to reign in the new year with our hosts ranting about Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

(0:00 – 2:40:15) The Dark Side Review! Star Wars: The Last Jedi – This film seems to be equally split between those who love and hate this film, just like the balance of the force. Dustin, Jonn and guest Vekou (who shows up about 45 minutes in) state their views on the film. As you can expect, spoilers are afoot in great detail. This lets us compare the Star Wars films to the Fast and Furious film series, how Jonn dog spoke up for animal rights on this film, how Disney can royally screw up a beloved science fiction series, and much more!

(2:40:15 – 4:27:09) Christmas Closing Remarks – This was recorded the next night with Jonn and Dustin keeping the mics warm on a post Christmas night, and more sound proof for Dustin since he recorded in his “sound proof” safe space closet (making his mic sound louder in the process). The remarks include bathroom gender rules, Dustin panels at Big Fandom Greenville, more Star Wars talk, what we got for Christmas, upcoming AnimEigo Kickstarters, video game talk, James Bond talk, Dustin Christmas movies he saw this year, 80’s cartoon themes and the goofyness of Voltron, Chris Chan and Ghost talk, the fall of Bitcoin and so much more!

 

Music Selection:

OP – The theme of Doom by the Disney Star Wars Machine…

ED 1 – This is the real Dark Side Review…

ED 2 – Our theme song for Disney Star Wars (a.k.a. I’m glad we said it all…)

AoY Podcast #98 – Animazement 2016 Review

Also known as: “AHHH SWEET, MY CHILDHOOD!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:38:17)

So to stay with proper convention review tradition, Dustin brings us his convention coverage of Animazement, 3 months after it happened, because that’s how we roll on this podcast.

(0:00 – 1:28:05) Con Report: Animazement 2016 – Because the summer was full of other episodes of topics that had a more pressing matter to be put out, Dustin finally tells his tale of his yearly trek to Animazement. All in all, between being stuck down in the dealers room dungeon by day and hitting up the virtual arcade streets of Initial D by night, this was a rather laid back year for Dustin. Of course, it wasn’t entirely that boring since he went on his tales of playing really good VR and arcade games in turn for house sitting at Mighty Rabbit Studios over the con weekend, working the dealers room beat, meeting up with old friends of the Initial D arcade scene, items to be sold and had and much more. This also goes off track a bit with Jonn and Dustin talking about retro gaming, recording the Animeigo panel, what is true cyberpunk, Dustin idea anime panels to get approved, and still more to add.

(1:28:05 – 1:38:17) Closing Remarks – This didn’t last that long since the news was rather irrelevant from things TCR Ghost said back in May, card game talk, people on ani-twitter gripe against anime cons, cats and more. Pretty soon well be getting to episode 100…

SPEAKING OF OUR UPCOMING 100TH EPISODE!!: Here’s the deal: Episode 100 is coming up and both hosts want you listeners to send us some suggestions on what to do. Should we read email sent by you? Should we do a review of something? Show off our anime collection on video? Demolition Derby? I dunno, you tell us! So to send us suggestions, email us at: aoypodcast@gmail.com, or you could tweet at us over at@AoYPodcast. It’s that simple to use guys! Depending on how many people submit ideas, Dustin and Jonn will pick the most doable idea and execute it, and there will be recognition for it! So let the podcast know by Episode 99 and we’ll see what happens!

AoY Podcast #72 – AnimEigo Panel Bonus Track

Also known as: “Hanzo the Razor… THE 3D EDITION!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 58:28)

You can go ahead and consider this episode as a “bonus track” to the Animazement review in the previous episode. This was an audio recording done at the AnimEigo panel for Animazement 2015 that for people who couldn’t be there, are able to hear what was said and discussed for the most part, thanks to Zeonic inability to handle recording it on his phone in a better way.

There isn’t really a need to for a time code in this episode, as the entire thing is the panel itself. Zeonic came in a few minutes late to one question, and had some issues 5 minutes in the panel, which caused some other things not to get on the audio. But for the most part, you should be able to hear what Robert Woodhead has to say and does his best to answer questions. Zeonic himself and Anime Hell’s own Phil Lee ask the hard hitting questions to Robert, meaning the’re the questions you can hear the clearest, just FYI. The other questions involved the mention of Hanzo the Razor, the Otaku no Video Kickstarter project, public enemy own ani-twitter Hazukari asking about Boah, the mention of Minna Agechou, Wizardry, AnimEigo as a company throughout the years, and others asking about the past titles of AnimEigo being possible Kickstarter’s one day. This and a whole lot more were asked in the panel, so check that out! Also, we swear we will release an anime review next episode, you can count on that!

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:

AoY Podcast # 49 – SpringCon Report Pt 2 (Animazement 2014)

And also: “Wait, so Robocop is trying to put together a puzzle of a naked woman?”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 2:09:35)

So to keep up with putting out these late convention reports, Zeonic was able to report on his yearly trek to the convention land that is Animazement, that was about 3 months ago. There is really no side conversation in this one, well, minus a few things here and there as per usual.

(0:00 – 1:01:37) Convention Coverage Part 1: This had certain things Zeonic griped about regarding the parking situation in areas, comic book shop owners (which prompt Zeonic to get the Zillion CD he mentioned), Zeonic hooks up with friends to play Windjammers and other strange arcade games, meeting up with other podcasters, the issues that college campuses face regarding running anime conventions, THE TRUTH regarding what happens to Kill La Kill cosplayers in the dealers room, THE TRUTH on those damn idiots who start Marco/Polo at these conventions, and more TRUTH after the promos…

(1:01:37 – 1:04:24) Promo’s: Since we went ahead and mentioned these people on our show (and from what we gather they did the same for us on theirs) we got a promo from Alpha Counter, Mating Habits of the Modern Geek, and our old homeboyz The Daily Anime Podcast (which BTW Jeff, when are you gonna keep doing Pokemon Unicron Brothahoodz? I sent you my recording over a month ago, what are you doing with it dawg?)

(1:04:24 – 2:09:35) Convention Coverage Part 2: Zeonic starts off by having Trish Ledoux point Zeonic in the right direction to see the man that every old school anime fan wants to see (and those who gave them their hard earned Kickstarter money), Robert Woodhead. After talking to Robert for a spell, Zeonic went on a spell as well regarding the issues of Animazement handling their “rules” in terms of autograph lines, more TRUTH on overestimating the Gundam fans in anime conventions when it comes to having line limits for autographs, going to the Gundam Rising panel late (you can see the part 1 and part 2 of the panel at those links), getting the sweetest hookup from Toshifumi Yoshida,  Legend of Galactic Heroes talk, MORE TRUTH on anime fans at conventions who would rather torrent every damn thing than spend any money to helping the industry, finding obscurely rare anime books from the past, Zeonic idea to do an anime convention “reenactment,” and a ton more to say.

Music Selection:

OP – The current theme for all Gundam fans in America…

ED – Greatest arcade game ever…

BEHOLD, THE “TRUTH” OF ANIMAZEMENT IN ACTION!!!

Here is another example of “THE TRUTH:” You can count on one hand the amount of people at anime cons who care about Macross Plus these days…

The real question is, are you the type of person who would pay 550 bucks for Giant Gorg anything? A harsh reality indeed.
