To celebrate the belated 30th anniversary of the greatest OVA of all time, Bubblegum Crisis, both Dustin and Jonn thought it would be fitting to celebrate the film that inspired the creation of Bubblegum Crisis, and that is Techno Police 21C.

(0:00 – 1:11:00) Review: The “Ultimate Non-Bubblegum Crisis Review” Techno Police 21C – To all those anime reviewers that were all about the Bubblegum Crisis anniversary and celebrating its monumental achievement to anime, they can go rot for all we care, cuz SCREW THAT NOISE! This podcast gets down to the real roots of where Bubblegum Crisis began, in a dumb, theatrical, cheezy robot film done by the original creator of Bubblegum Crisis, Toshimichi Suzuki. If you the listener are thinking “What the hell’s the AOY Podcast problem not covering Bubblegum Crisis?” (or other problems we have in general), the answer is that Dustin and Jonn covered Bubblegum Crisis for it’s 25th anniversary, and all those episodes are on our review page for you to check out that came from another podcast Jonn and Dustin used to do. This also includes off topic banter about making a bank into a crystal triangle, Mike Judge secret anime stash, retard robots ride the short bus, Dustin Wesley Willis impersonation, this movie inspired other great films to be made, comparisons between Techno Police and Bubblegum Crisis, technical issues and much more!

For other good content on Bubblegum Crisis, check out The Anime Nostalgia podcast discussion of it with Sean O’Mara, which Sean also has done reviews of Bubblegum Crisis for Zimmerit.moe.

2015 is over, and now we move onto the year of 2016. 2015 was a pretty fun year from the podcast group, especially when Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes out to end it all. So this years podcast special is about our hosts giving their take on the recent flick from a galaxy far away galaxy…

(0:00 – 1:11:15 ) Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens Review – In previous podcast episodes, Dustin and Jonn seemed a bit skeptical to how this new Star Wars film will turn out. With both parties seeing the film along with past podcast guest Daft, the three sit down and break down the film to their understanding. So yes, that means we will spoil this film, so go see it before you hear this podcast. They also talk about the Star Wars series in general, how people don’t know the origins of Good Burger, what it was like to see Star Wars now than the prequel films, fan theories to the latest Star Wars film, our thoughts on the Iron Man movies, Dustin thoughts on the upcoming Ghost in the Shell film, and much more.

(1:11:15 – 1:51:20 ) Yuletide Closing Remarks – All three hosts talk about what they did and got for Christmas, along with Daft experience with seeing the Hateful Eight, The last Hunger Games movie, how Right Stuf hooked us up, Bennett the Sage Bubblegum Crisis review rant, Dustin using Twitch, the Nickelodeon Slam Block, and much more.

Music Selection:

OP – It was bound to happen that we talked about Star Wars…

ED – We hope 2016 is a SUPER DUPER YEAR!!!

This show has:

Dustin never knew about this till James Rolfe had to talk about it…

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

Also known as:  “I guess I should call this the Windjammers Con.
And also: “Wait, so Robocop is trying to put together a puzzle of a naked woman?”

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…

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!)

That is how you should post in cosplay photos… (aka Evangelion in a nutshell)

 

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.


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.
