It’s per tradition that we release convention reports half a year after the con happened, because oh freaking well. So if your wanting someone to drone on about their time at a con that you weren’t at during a long holiday flight or drive, we got your covered!
(0:00 – 1:34:15) Animazement 2018 Con Report – Dustin regales his tale of a con that happened when the weather was a whole lot warmer, where the first time in years he is a regular con lackey roaming the hallways and not dealing with patrons in the dealers room. Stories can be told about hanging out with other Otaku he’s know about online and their posse, Dustin old parking job and the economics surrounding that industry, modifying your SNES, getting sweet swag from Limited Run Games on a yearly visit, trying to talk to women at the bar with a Salvador Dali art work on their back, the dreaded bootleg dealer came back, rednecks whining about stuff they don’t have in public restaurants, drunken dads that roam the cons and more. This also includes how we thought the Starbucks training lead to other problems, seeing a Steely Dan/Doobie Bros concert in Atlanta, video game and anime talk, and much more.
(1:34:15 – 02:25:29) Closing Remarks Part 1 – This is just the opinions of ours relating back in May, that people have already forgotten about but ohwellwhocaresanyways. This includes televangelists who buy jets in the name of Jesus and Christianity talk, hot takes on the news, how Rosanne got cancelled and much more.
(02:25:29 – 04:03:30) Anime Weekend Atlanta 2018 Con Report – If anything was lacking from Animazement, AWA made that up tenfold. Dustin recants his experience by hanging out with his buddy downtown to ride on electric scooters after eating some Pho’King amazing food, getting the correct panelist badge, meeting with old friends, meeting cool people like Tim Eldred, Micheal Sinterniklaas, Darius Washington and Andy Field, talking about panels done at the convention (which were titled Anime in High Gear, Christianity in Anime and Mobile Suit Gundam in America), buying Neil Nadelman old Gundam laserdiscs, getting the sweet hookup on Voltes V from Dave Merrill, getting to meet the Corn Pone man himself in person, people who have seizures at the con and how the staff handles that proper, Is Daryl Surat a Pokemon Seizure Episode Denier that it was ALL A CONSPIRACY? and more.
(04:03:30 – 04:29:48) Closing Remarks Part 2 – Somehow we get into closing remarks territory with the past pre-hearing of the Kavanaugh case, banned episodes of Pokemon, general anime and politics talk, people who had complaints on panels at AWA from an alt-right perspective and more.

So Animazement is this weekend, which is where Dustin is going to make his trek once again and needs to put something out this month. So, it’s time for our hosts to combine their Hamon powers into one, by letting this podcast take it’s rightful STAND in reviewing Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Battle Tendency.
(0:00 – 1:18:20) Review: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Battle Tendency – Since its been a few years since we reviewed Phantom Blood, this podcast is able to combine four entities into reviewing Jojo’s once more. But, in a twist of foreseen fate, our guest Daft was a Troll Pillar Man the whole time!! How will Dustin, Jonn and Josh combat this despicable fiend? By basically letting him do whatever he wants to the show.
In all seriousness, Jojo’s ended on Toonami, so the four hosts came together to talk about it. Actually, it was mostly a critique off a Toonzone thread of some mod bashing the show, so there was a lot to say on that. There is also discussions on Chris Chan mummified shirt being discovered, Nazisploitation films, Josh and his experiences with anime clubs, how Mega 64 paid homage to our podcast, 4D theme park rides, and how Disneyland employees handle guests suicide.
(1:18:20 – 1:48:00) Closing Remarks – This gets the hosts talking about if our world will be going to World War 3 again, Jonn buying the new Zelda game, SNES Mini discussion, the History of Buy-Rite Video Games, anime releases coming out soon like Record of Lodoss War and titles from Discotek, and much more.

Ok, so it’s been a exactly 25 episodes since we last covered the Gundam the Origin manga. However, we’re at least was honest in that post about if it’ll take longer than 18 episodes to get to the next volume, which we clearly went above and beyond that number. However, Jonn and Zeonic are gonna double dose it for you, by covering TWO volumes of Gundam the Origin in this episode too make up some lost ground. We are also gonna keep up with tradition from last year, and that’s to read out a years worth of comments we have received in 2014 (and some of 2015 as well).
(0:00 – 50:00) Review: Mobile Suit Gundam – The Origin Vol. 3 & 4: After playing our Indiegogo intro at the beginning of the podcast, both Jonn and Zeonic tackle the South American Zeon occupied jungle of Gundam the Origin. Both co-host are able to go through both volumes by hitting the high points of the plot, but it’s all the same if someone saw the original Gundam series to begin with, so die hard fans are not gonna get offended by the spoilers we might say. Of course, this is Yasuhiko way of making sure the White Base crew knew where South America was than trying to trek through Asia to get there like in the original series. Of course before we dive into any of that, Zeonic explains to Jonn how he was still alive by battling a harsh cold, getting on tangents about television censorship in cartoons, and then us talking about Futurama seasons for some reason.
(50:00 – 52:27) Promo’s: Alpha Counter is there to remind us the dangers of today’s post-modern way of accepting Furries and how, that idea is just plain dumb. Anime World Order has been busy with putting out 2 episodes within a months time, which includes interviews with current Hobby Link Japan employee and one of the early founders of American anime fandom Ardith Carlton, as well as talking about SeHa Girls with Heidi Kemps. Dave and Joel still wanna let you know, that Jojo’s is a crazy show to watch.
(52:27 – 2:07:33) Keeping with Tradition – Reading Listener Comments: This is a tradition that we’ll continue to do on the podcast, because it’s our small appreciation to you listeners that we do read your comments, and then later read them out loud on this podcast once a year. Upon reading out our comments in 2014, we get into discussions about Gundam, Macross (and the blunders at Harmony Gold), Captain Harlock, video games and a whole lot more. This of course keeps us up with the latest Chris Chan news, Discotek Media doing their own crowdsource idea, and much more.

With us keeping up with our own hallows eve tradition from last year, Jonn and Zeonic decided to help you guys out on this darkest of nights. Wither you’re out trick-or-treating as a manchild, on your way to visit your friends to delight in watching crappy scary movies, or trying hard to get hooked up at the club with no such luck. Whatever the case, we will fill your ears with hearing how we celebrate Halloween night, the Go Nagai way! So for this year, we call on the powers of the second OVA of Devilman.
(0:00 – 33:20) Review: Devilman OVA – “The Demon Bird”: If you are looking for “that” anime on Halloween night to watch, then look no further than finding most of the works by Go Nagai. Last year was just part one of Jonn and Zeonic going through the pits of Go Nagai Hell, only to find that both must continue their quest to finish the Devilman OVA’s. This time they are threatened by redneck demon turtles, water shaping demons, harpies, demon rhinos and such harpies nuking Japan… and SATAN! This is of course SPOILED to you guys, as we throw in brief talk of Chris Chan, Go Nagai other works, when Parkour started, and other misc. crap… you know, the usual. You can more than likely expect us to cover the Amon: Apocalypse of Devilman anime next year (gif NSFW probably).
(33:20 – 1:05:46) Off-Topic Ramblings: Half way through this recording, we pretty much were done with whatever we had to say about Devilman, so that ventured us off to discuss other topics of interest. These include: what “was” on sale on RightStuf, Lupin the 3rd discussion, Zeonic seeing Little Nemo as a child without knowing it, stupid opinions on twitter, HASHTAG GAMERGATE GATE GATE #ANIMOOGATE RAGE, and the issues of fansub weeaboo’s out there (speaking of, here is the F fansub link and Reporter Blues so far. Guys. its ok to fansub anime thats in another language, because we wants to see it!) So with that, Happy Halloween and see you guys next time!

If there is one thing that anime fans would ever agree upon as a community, it’s that every person who likes anime wants to go to Japan once in their lives. It is a second desire that tags along with liking Japanese cartoons, and fans will do just about anything to see the land of the rising sun when given that golden opportunity to go. That moment was able to finally come to Zeonic, when he went on a university trip to Kanazawa, Japan to finally accomplish that life goal of being an anime fan for 15+ years.
(0:00 – 1:26:03) – Zeonic tells his journey over the pacific to the land of the rising sun, which is full of airline stupidity, stopping in Jonn’s backyard, getting In n Out of LAX layovers, and people who steal his pillow somewhere over the pacific. Of course upon arriving in the land of otaku milk and honey, he mentions how he does English Q&A on a high school play, what his experience was like teaching English to the Japanese, talking about anime translation differences between east and west with other people, and getting on the Japanese evening news.
Promo Break (1:26:03 – 1:28:15) – Since this is a pretty long episode, I got 3 podcast promos for you to listen too. I decided to get things off with the anime podcasting champions of the Anime World Order podcast, followed by the only great anime promo I have ever heard of from The Daily Anime Podcast, and then giving a shout out to our bro’s over at Alpha Counter. In other words, these guys are better than us even on our best days, so check em out.
(1:28:15 – 2:22:52) – After the promo break, Zeonic tells his personal experience with getting involved in the ultimate bonding experience with the Japanese society; by going to a local bathhouse. This also leads too seeing a typical bingo night, talking about the sights and shops around Kanazawa, the city local festival, and even more flight issues coming back home. We also happen to divert off the podcast flight plan to mention that Violence Jack is licensed by Discotek Media, what North Korea podcasts would be like, which leads to a nose dive into talking about terrible Korean anime (and the poor suckers who review it.) All this and a whole lot more to be stored in your overhead podcast compartment.
