It’s that time of year, where con season is upon us. So to kick things off as usual guests Daft and Cloud return to talk about their yearly trek to Anime Boston!
(0:00 – 51:45) The Anime Boston Chronicles: Chapter Cloud – Our resident Precure fanboy Cloud stops by and fills us in on his adventure at Anime Boston, filled with meeting Guest of Honor, buying stuff and places to eat. To find more detail about his experience go to his blog found here. This also has us chiming in on the Sailor Moon panel, places to eat in Boston, failed Adult Swim pilots about Bostonians, Leiji Matsumoto manga releases, which live action movie was worse, prices from dealers like Anime Asylum and the cel market and much more.
(51:45 – 02:44:35) The Anime Boston Chronicles: Chapter Daft – Daft joins in to go into a longer digest of the “other side” of the convention, including hotel wrasslin matches, good artists at artist ally, getting to meet Steve Blum and how he does his panels, Greg Ayres stories (including what parents thought YAOI meant in the early 2000’s), past video players like Juice Box and Game Boy Advance Video, Toonami April Fools talk, arcade games at the con, old anime trading cards, Jonn dog has a nightmare of Daft’s adventures, Sports talk with Daft and Dustin, and much more!
(02:44:35 – 03:02:37) Closing Remarks: Really nothing much was said other than the occasional Peter Fay and Love That Goku tweets, Daft trying to proposition Cloud sister into wrasslin next year, getting educated on what Easter is all about, and why the Pats let Brady literally kiss their superbowl away.

AoY Podcast #98 – Animazement 2016 Review
Also known as: “AHHH SWEET, MY CHILDHOOD!”
Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:38:17)
So to stay with proper convention review tradition, Dustin brings us his convention coverage of Animazement, 3 months after it happened, because that’s how we roll on this podcast.
(0:00 – 1:28:05) Con Report: Animazement 2016 – Because the summer was full of other episodes of topics that had a more pressing matter to be put out, Dustin finally tells his tale of his yearly trek to Animazement. All in all, between being stuck down in the dealers room dungeon by day and hitting up the virtual arcade streets of Initial D by night, this was a rather laid back year for Dustin. Of course, it wasn’t entirely that boring since he went on his tales of playing really good VR and arcade games in turn for house sitting at Mighty Rabbit Studios over the con weekend, working the dealers room beat, meeting up with old friends of the Initial D arcade scene, items to be sold and had and much more. This also goes off track a bit with Jonn and Dustin talking about retro gaming, recording the Animeigo panel, what is true cyberpunk, Dustin idea anime panels to get approved, and still more to add.
(1:28:05 – 1:38:17) Closing Remarks – This didn’t last that long since the news was rather irrelevant from things TCR Ghost said back in May, card game talk, people on ani-twitter gripe against anime cons, cats and more. Pretty soon well be getting to episode 100…
SPEAKING OF OUR UPCOMING 100TH EPISODE!!: Here’s the deal: Episode 100 is coming up and both hosts want you listeners to send us some suggestions on what to do. Should we read email sent by you?
