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.
OP – The current theme for all Gundam fans in America…
ED – Greatest arcade game ever…
This show has:
Windjammers…. in a nutshell, basically.
A game that should not be out in public view, just saying
14 years later, Robert still has his charm to anime fans… (just imagine 2 and a half hours of this guy, its great!)
AoY Podcast #26 – Kickstart-ing a Fall Anime Season 2013
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.
