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 #55 – BanzaiCon III (2014) Con Report

So this episode might be the only thing released in November, but oh well, since thats how it goes when papers are due and test are being studied for. At least this time for Zeonic sake, a con report isn’t released 3 months after the con ended, but only by a month!! We totally know what were doing, as Zeonic gets to dive into his adventures about BanzaiCon 2014!

(0:00 – 1:06:41) Con Report: BanzaiCon III (2014): This is the first time Zeonic has stayed for a South Carolina con for more than a day, and he has some good ventures out of his experience. This is all entailed about getting locked out of your car, cats that break computer equipment, broken air conditioning systems, watching SEC college football, getting rid of junk, people who leave shoes in con rooms, meeting cool Trekkies, and outdoing other people’s panels (at least in Zeonic mind). Of course for no logical reason, Jonn and Zeonic spiral off topic throughout the podcast about RightStuf getting Gundam, the gradual death of American Cartoons, a GIGANTIC discussion about Science Fiction films/books/etc, Ultraman talk and much more.

(1:06:41 – 1:18:20) Bonus Content: Here is the part of the podcast where Zeonic recorded the conversations from the older con attendees at BanzaiCon, where they relish in telling tales about debating the writings by Richard Matheson, Science Fiction movies, and drinking all in good fun. About half way through that the audio will fade out and in to indicate the break of when the group went out to smoke and then came back at the table. So enjoy the bonus!!

AoY Podcast #52 – The Angry Black Video Lagoon Gaming Nerds! (AVGN: The Movie / Black Lagoon Review)

Also known as: “TerminMAIDer… Ter-min-maid, AHHHURHURRR!!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:45:34)

It has been a long while since the Holy AoY Podcast Trinity were able to come together and review a movie and a show in one episode (actually this might be THE ONLY TIME EVER!) We are once united with our overly quiet podcast co-host Josh, as we get to discuss the most recent Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie being released online, and give our feedback on the moral misgivings of dumbass internet forum debates about Black Lagoon. 

(0:00 – 49:27) – A Non-Anime Movie Review: The Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie: The trinity was needed to discuss the lifetime project of James Rolfe and his angry endeavors of reviewing old video games on the internet, which then lead him to achieve the ultimate goal of turning all that hard work into a movie, which is a lot of hard work. So, like everyone else on the internet, we wanted to give our say on his hard work over the past few years. Of course before we get into any of that, we decide to rant about water issues in the West, the deep rooted forum stupidity behind Toonzone.net (aka, Zeonic becoming a Class A Cyber Criminal one lame post at a time), which then leads us to talking about the film. We decided to approach the film with us talking about the parts we liked (aka some Spoilers you know), and really reviewing the character of The Nerd and his evolution throughout the years on the internet. We also discuss how we first got into The Nerd, which in turn gets us into our roots a little on how we got to know each other online. Dare I say a podcast origins episode might turn up one day? Well, you’ll just have to wait and see about that.

(49:27 – 52:30) Podcast Promos: With Alpha Counter making the funding goal on their Indiegogo page, we figure we owe it to them to play a promo for them. Dave and Joel seem to be releasing more episodes recently than they have in the past few months; because with JoJo’s and Destiny out in force, they are there too get on that beat. Speaking of releases, The Daily Anime Podcast decided to recently release their review of the To Terra movie, which was just Jeff talking about the film for 20 odd minutes, since I know he read the manga for a while.

(52:30 – 1:45:34) The Toonzone Debacle: Black Lagoon Review: Due to the dismay of one particular internet forums opinions (keep reading past the post on the link if you dare), we unite the trinity once more to discuss the recent end of the airing of Black Lagoon on Toonami. Our opinions are mixed on this show, as Zeonic believes that it might be the greatest show to air on Toonami in its entire history, and believes anyone who opposes that idea is a “pansy female reproductive organ.”Jonn on the other hand is not all in alignment to Zeonic Toonami prophetic enlightened views, and Josh just cares about how many BEEPS the show got on TV. We decide to not spoil too much on the show itself; and use the flames of war, cast by a Toonzone Mod unbeliever, to discuss the human, psychological and moral viewpoints of the world in Black Lagoon. Maybe we are giving this show too much credit, but then again, maybe not enough (only because deep down, Zeonic believes Black Lagoon is the best modern day anime equivalent to a 1990’s Manga UK dub.) Care to weigh in your opinion listeners? This also ends with us discussing Zeonic panel plans for BanzaiCon, how we successfully trolled ToonRadio, and much more.

Convention Note: If anyone is going to BanzaiCon in a couple of weeks, you have a chance to see Zeonic continue to spew his anime nerd knowledge upon the masses of Naruto headband wearing, Hetalia flag waving, Titan slaying anime nerds that will be present. On Saturday from 6 to 7pm, Zeonic will show his Robot Anime Openings of the 1980’s; which will showcase openings to mecha anime, and even some that made it to the states. Then on Saturday from Midnight to 2am is the cream de la cream to what all panels want to aspire to be, and that is the “WHAT THE HECK?” MOMENTS IN ANIME: THREE TIMES THE MISCHARMED!! It is essentially the closest thing BanzaiCon has to an Anime Hell at this point, and people must know THE TRUTH behind what anime is really about.

Music Selection:

OP 1  – The underlining theme song to the true nerds out there…

ED 1  – Pretty sweet film Nerd, i’ll give him that…

OP 2 – Get ready to get drawn into the underworld…

ED 2 – What I imagine is on Revy playlist next to the M.D. Geist OST…

“The graphics are so good, you’ll commit SEGACIDE!!”

 


Chinglish is totally Zeonic new waifu…


What 20 years of a fallen government and war can do to a person…


Now, just imagine everything you heard, were beeps. And that’s this show guys…

 


AoY Podcast #28 – BanzaiCon 2013 Talkback


DSC_0936

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.
