Better late than never right, even when your almost 5 months from when you released your last episode. Well were back with a nearly stacked deck of a podcast because we just want to release out stuff like a Tankobon no one asked for. Here is another 3-in-1 recording with our official review of Netflix Cowboy Bebop, The Batman and smooshed into the middle is a closing remarks segment of news that happened long ago that no one cares about it now, but here it is!
(0:00 – 1:26:21) Part I: Cowboy Bebop (Netflix) Review – Back in late February we recorded our episode about this Netflix series after Jonn had a chance to sit down and watching, and fully admits that Dustin was correct in how great of a show it was, issues and all. Of course, another big worldwide event happened that we had to talk about before going into Bebop, and that is the Russia v. Ukraine War/Conflict/Skirmish/whatever historians are going label this in about 50 years. We give our initial thoughts on what was coming out through the media and other news sources at the time for about 37 or so minutes before we just said “We’ll were not doing much to solve this, let’s just talk about Bebop.” Also included is Dustin talking about how he can’t figure out a 3D printer, old Cartoon Network program blocks, why RightStuf is releasing Gundam Seed so freggin high, and much more!
(1:26:21 – 3:03:07) Part II: The jammed packed gooey-ooey Closing Remarks Special – We were about to do it, we were gonna talk about Batman… and then we didn’t. Instead of caped crusader talk, its filled with Ruskie crusader talk of the Ukraine war one month later (and the people on the ground reporting on it NSFW), RIP Gilbert Gottfried, The Slap Heard Around The World, Dustin being on The Dad’s Anime Stashe Podcast Trivia Contest (and winning it hands down), DeSantos vs. Disney Corp, Dustin being a guest to talk about AMV’s, the destruction of food processing places in America, Global and American politics, The legacy of Toonman, vtuber interviews Van-Pires actor, and much more!
(3:03:07 – 4:45:27) Part III: The Batusi of high class Cinema – We Did It, much much later than we wanted too, but its done. We talk about The Batman. Daft joins in as our special returning guest to give his thoughts on the film, and more insight on the Rise and Fall of Toonman. This also includes comic book store talk, political comics in the 2000’s, History of Batman comics, The Fast and Furious movie franchise, past podcasts, Sports Talk with Daft and Dustin on the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, Dustin recounts the Halo TV series, creepy twitter users and a whole lot more!

This also includes Closing Remarks on topics such as how Bloomburg is running for president, why Americans care about the British rule still today, Epstein conspiracy talk, getting over your ex, return of 8chan, the dangers of seeing the Joker movie, anime movies in theaters, anime on Cartoon Network and more.

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.

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

So, after saying this for over a year at this point off and on, the hosts of this podcast decided to give their backstory on how they all know each other and meet on the AOL Instant Messaging service, which the group chat function ceased on March 15th, 2016.
We are also going to add, that this and the part 2 that will come up, are completely unedited. Nothing has been censored, condensed, or rearranged to distort THE TRUTH of people that we are going to say right now do not exist… which isn’t true. The only thing done to this episode is to increase volume levels in the recording so you can hear what we have to say, that’s it.
To make a long story short, this is 2 hours of Dustin, Jonn, Daft, Josh (when his Skype was working) and Vekou talking about how we all meet online. For Dustin and Vekou, this goes back to the early 2000’s under pre-One Piece Podcast co-host Zach Nathenson before he ever watched that show and ran a small forum called Adult Swim Headquarters, which lead to Dustin joining Toonzone.net. Jonn, Josh, and Daft recollect how they got to Toonzone as well, and how all of us put up with our youthful bullcrap over a decade ago. We ramble off topics on Cartoon Network shows, comic book talk, Mac the Night commercials, and “insider baseball” for forum and chat room drama that no one needs to know that we still tell you listeners all about. If anything, at best you can get a few good laughs from it and say how horrible people we all are. It’s a fair assessment, and we can understand. See you for part 2 next time… hopefully with less Moon Man…
