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!

No, this particular podcast isn’t 10 years old, we got a couple more years till that happens. This is to commemorate us doing podcasting for 10 years at this point in time going back to the old Kool Kids Klub Podcast days. No one has told us to stop, and if they did, we’re just not going to listen. Join Dustin, Jonn, Daft and Teewhy as we review Godzilla vs. Kong, the Zack Snyder Justice League Cut, and extended closing remarks.
(0:00 – 1:54:07) Review: Zack Snyder Justice League Cut – Yep, this another one of those supersized episodes we recorded over a couple of months. In this piece we have our discussion of the Justice League cut by Zack Snyder which turned out to be a far better film than the 2017 release. This gets us to talking about Daft and Dustin on keeping a log of things they
hoarde, er collect, how Canadian geese suck, the Darkman movie and other movies like it during the time, other Wizard of Oz renditions, which is worse: DC EU or Star Wars Sequels?, more Star Wars discussion, if Zach Snyder did a Dragonball Z Cut, the future of anime/fandom cons, porn parody film discussion, our days at Toon Radio and much more!
(1:54:07 – 3:40:15) Review: Godzilla vs. Kong – This was our recent recording to talk about as much as we could on this film, but also filled with other side banter. This includes how Dustin Cowboy Bebop Adult Swim recordings are circulating around the internet more, censorship on Toonami, the Dubs Time Forgot archive.org page, CN anime schedules on TV, Dairy Queen and the sketchy Indians that run them in your local town, Evangelion talk, Jonn and Daft talk about the new Tom and Jerry movie, the future of streaming services, Baby Yoda merch, Dustin passing out in his gaming chair, Space Jam 2 talk and much more.
(3:40:15 – 5:15:43) Extended Closing Remarks – A lot has happened to our main host Jonn and Dustin in the past couple of months, which a whole segment is dedicated to that just for the heck of it. This involves Jonn getting banned from Twitter for doing absolutely nothing, Dustin tells his journey through the maze of internet dating and the crazy women he meets along the way, the Ravi Zacharias controversy, COVID conspiracy discussion, Dustin getting a new ride, how doing outdoor escape rooms with dumb people is a terrible activity to do, RIP shoutouts, early Screw Attack content, going to awesome video stores in Asheville NC, Silent Mobius talk, how we are still podcasting 10 years later, Biden tripping up the stairs and much more!

Also known as: “The Beau Billingslea Power Hour on Toonami!”
Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 3:05:30)
We talk about the two biggest titans in the galaxay among anime fans in the early 2000’s, where we review Outlaw Star and Cowboy Bebop!
(0:00 – 45:40) Review: Outlaw Star – This podcast episode is the historic record of the pinnacle of what was important to anime fans on Cartoon Network starting from 2001 and beyond. Outlaw Star was a big anime among the viewers of Toonami, and Dustin heard about this show for years until he finally saw the series shown on Toonami recently for the first time. Both hosts Jonn and Dustin and special guest Daft chime in to talk about the overview of the series with some spoilers thrown in. This also includes how its vital importance that Jonn dad tells Jonn in the call that the dog is eating cheese off the floor, the stupidity of Transformers cartoons, Outlaw Star merch in America, FLCL revival talks, will Hamtaro be on Toonami for Aprils Fools Night? (as of this writing, Adult Swim showed FLCL Alternative subtitled on TV, followed by Mind Game, and a bunch of the regular block airing in the same format, because I’m writing this about 1am on April Fools night – Dustin), Toonami censorship on TV and much more.
(45:40 – 1:39:00) Review: Cowboy Bebop – This episode marks the 20th anniversary since the anime first aired on TV Tokyo, and how it later showed up that late summer on the new Adult Swim block on Cartoon Network in 2001. Both hosts recant how much of an impact Bebop has had on them as anime fans all these years later, including the merch that’s out there (you can find the pdf of the Bebop Anime Guides here at my blog – Dustin). This goes into account what particular episode got Dustin involved in Bebop, our top 3 Bebop episodes, the TV edits, and a whole lot more!
(1:39:00 – 3:05:30) Closing Remarks – This is chock full of material that covers for the month of March since we last recorded, including how Love that Goku got social services on his butt, Linkara leaving TGWTG and the twitter thread full of the company drama, Meson in dire need, the fully funded Kickstarter for Gunsmith Cats, The Toys That Made Us Netflix Documentary series, Dustin con talks on Toylanta and SC Comic Con, RIP Toys R Us/southern food stores/Return of KB Toys, the Mystery of Miami Mike finally solved by The Anime Nostalgia Podcast and the stupid weeaboo drama that follows on the ANN Forums, Dustin mentions his thoughts on Pacific Rim 2, and much more!
