After a long time coming (that no one asked for), the podcast covers one of the worst greatest blunders of Robotech history; Robotech: The Movie: The Untold Story. This time the podcast is greeted by Robotech fan Grant The Thief.

(0:00 – 1:23:40) The Untold Review: Robotech: The Movie (ie, Talk-About-Robotech-Than-This-Crappy-Film-For-Over-An-Hour-And-Twenty-Minutes) – No the headline isn’t lying to you guys, Dustin, Jonn and Grant really did talk about other Robotech stuff than this film. Think about it, if the hosts really “did” talk about Robotech: The Movie, this podcast would have been really short, and who wants that? Before ever going into trying to summarize the wikipedia article of this film, the hosts just talked Robotech from property rights, fandom and silly crossovers throughout Robotech lifetime. This also gets into discussion on Harmony Gold properties (like that Captain Harlock dub), who Carl Macek really is, how people forgot how to draw Robotech officially, how anime being shown on television has changed for the better and much more.

(1:23:40 – 02:21:55) Closing Remarks – Dustin and Jonn bring in the verdict for the Rise and Crash of KidsClickTV, Grant brings in how great Lupin the 3rd is, Dustin being a panelist at Electric City Comic Con, Cartoon Network shows, crazy Robotech podcasters, and how breaking up with your fiancee is hard to do. All this and more in this weeks episode.

Music Selection:

OP – Why can’t I be saaaaaaaved, from Harmony Gold!

ED – The future is looking grim for Robotech, oh wait, that’s nothing new…

This show has:

I hope the rest of this gets on TV for real…

This was a review that was a long time coming, which this seems to be the most appropriate time to cover it. After making its mark in Japanese theaters on July 7th 1984, this has been a movie that fans have grown to love and appreciate over the years. From the die hard of them all to the young at heart, Macross has left an impressionable mark in animation going back to the early 1980’s. And what better way for there to be a retelling of a series than with Super Dimensional Fortress Macross: Do You Remember Love? I should note, we mostly stay on topic, if that means anything to you listeners.

Review: SDF Macross: Do You Remember Love? This film is a piece that, from the hardcore to the intermediate of anime fans, need to see once in their lives. This film is so powerful, that not even companies can obtain the full rights to it on both sides of the globe, which has been in constant legal battle since it’s creation so long ago. Even so, many people who worked on this film and were involved have made a name for themselves in the anime industry since then. So, what better way for Zeonic and Jonn to give a “semi” spoiler free (you heard right!) discussion on this film as a whole, where they both talk mostly about the history of this film and those who worked on it; and how it’s been distributed across the globe. This also gives Zeonic and Jonn a chance to discuss Macross and Robotech in the states, which was able to leave such a major mark in shaping anime fandom to where it is today. This also has them talking about their experiences seeing this movie for the first time, the legal issues surrounding the movie and the television series over the years, Harmony Gold rantings, bootleg anime talk, Gamestop/EB Games talk, the current issues with Let’s Plays, and much more. Also, CLASHING OF THE ZINGEROIDS SOUNDS! at the end.

Here are some versions on Youtube (as of now) that you can see this movie:

AoY Podcast # 38 – Get in the Zone! Megazone 23 Part 2 Review


Megazone 23 part II_raw_avi_000003294

Also known as: “WHO DID YOU SAAAAAY?! JOHNNY….WINTERS?”

We are still kicking it for the month of March, as we still get zoned into the madness that is the Megazone 23 OVA series. This time, we cover the maybe-once-hated, but-now-probably-not-so-much sequel to the first Megazone 23 OVA.

As Zeonic will say in this podcast, he does like Part 2 a little bit more than Part 1, only because its straight up on what its trying to tell, and it has one of Zeonic favorite anime directors doing his first directing job, Ichiro Itano. If you want to see an anime that Itano directed that won’t make you feel scared or hate anime for the rest of your life, this is that anime. This of course has bikers who are just pure Trash, rad 80’s to the max, doggy style sex scenes (I ment to say 45 seconds not 45 minutes long, sorry guys), taking down the system, and Sex Wax on your back. Of course, there is no need for time codes on this one as we do stick to the review… most of the time. Zeonic goes off the rails to mention how the new 300: Rise of an Empire movie is really dumb as far as Zack Snyder sex scenes goes, how wrasslin babes from the 80’s can do some voice acting and have cameos in this OVA, how anime dubbing has come a long way to fall flat on its face, Toonami talk in general on shows that have ended and started, and much more.
