It’s Zeonic and his brother talking about seeing the theatrical viewing of Dragonball Z: Battle of Gods as they walk out of the theater (after the movie ended of course) while driving to a bookstore within the town. Well its really Zeonic and his bro talking about DBZ related stuff, and how loud the GPS is in the car. (Warning: This is pretty ghetto and I didn’t edit a thing).

It’s been exaclty 18 episodes since we covered the first volume of Gundam the Origin manga, and for that… we have zero excuses as to why its been that long (no wait, it’s all Josh’s fault). The bigger question is, is it going to be take another 18 more episodes to get to volume 3? I am not even sure if we can be at liberty to answer that question at this time. But hey, we finally got around to talking about volume 2 now. We also get to dive into the Dragonball Z movie that came out last year, Battle of Gods, and finish things up with our thoughts on the last days of Sword Art Online being on Toonami. This episode was also recorded on the new mic I got, and as you can probably tell, I sound kinda different. I am still working out the kinks on how to make it sound, so well see how that goes down in the next few episodes (or if I just need to go back to the old USB Headset).

0:00 – 34:05: So after all this time of mentioning an episode to review Gundam the Origin Vol. 2 in our past episodes, that day has finally come. We pretty much discuss changes made in the manga from the anime series that we were able to point out and give our take on it. Of course, like usual fare, we don’t stay on topic much, not when I say that Brony’s have their own docutmentary, people who hate old UC Gundam shows at comic book places, general Gundam talk (cuz thats how we do it,) the dubs of Streamline anime, how Gundam was animated back in the day and much more. There was also an issue with a transition from us talking about Bright B(right)-slapping Amuro in the manga to getting in the middle of a discussion of Double Zeta. All you need to know is that is how GarageBand works for us.

34:05 – 1:05:20: After talking about this film a little bit on our AIM chatroom a few days before we recorded, we decided to also give our thoughts on last year’s Dragonball Z: Battle of Gods movie. For a film made almost 20 years after Wrath of the Dragon, it seems to be an all around fun movie for true Dragonball Z fans. This gets us to mostly talk about Dragonball Z in general (or really Zeonic’s recollection of a show he hasn’t seen in almost a decade at this point), how people think it’s a good idea to make a 1080p video of Gundam Wing openings, our favorite lolcow news and more.

1:05:20 – 1:43:20: While in the middle of Jonn’s closing remarks on Love_that_Goku becoming a Satanist, Josh brings up a much more pressing matter at hand than anything we have discussed so far, SWORD ART ONLINE IS FINALLY OVER ON TOONAMI!!!! We relished in our celebration to bring you our thoughts on the last 2 episodes of that god forsaken show. Of course, we called upon a man who we have mentioned his name in passing several times in the past; a man who is our source of SAO knowledge, and a man who can only be called upon as… “C.G.” (ChibiGoku). Along with SAO bashing and smashing, we discuss if Japanese might be true rednecks, VHS/VCR tech talk, what’s going on in Toonami, how we celebrated SAO last episode, how the new Robocop film is pretty good, and much more.

Next time, you can expect us to get into the zone for our March (and probably April) review of a particular 80’s anime gem.

We also want to give a shout out to Otaku Generation for playing our promo on their most recent episode.

AoY Podcast #20 – Takahashi vs. Tomino Round 1 (Heavy Metal L-Gaim & Blue Gender Review)


vlcsnap-2013-06-19-12h12m26s6

Also known as: ” Hey Kayro, you hair makes the best beanbag!”
or also: “And there’s sum-sum-sum-ro-ro-robot God…”

We are finally doing another anime marathon of sorts, where for once a month, for the next couple of months (or longer maybe), we will talk about some series/shows from some of the two biggest anime directors out there, Yoshiyuki Tomino vs. Ryouske Takahashi.

We start off with our discussion of Heavy Metal L-Gaim by Tomino, where we compare and contrast between the OVA’s and TV series. We then go right into a Takahashi show from not that long ago called Blue Gender. Some of the discussions include how people can pilot a robot from a KORG machine, total 80’s fashion, subtitle issues, anime wraslin, annoying characters, how something can be almost like Starship Troopers, censorship in a TV series and much more. We also go off topic on things like recent anime start up companies, taking an early look at Funimation, DBZ side talk and other Takahashi shows we will cover down the road. All this and more in this weeks episode.

Side Note: I know I said the words “Takahashi vs. Tomino Month” in the intro, but this is gonna go on longer than that, and I ment to say segment. But, if you know our track record, you probably won’t hold that against us, which is cool. I should just edit it out, but OH WELL!

AoY Podcast #6 – Golden-Ani First Loves (aka Valentine’s Day Special w/ Geoff Tebbetts)


AOY Valentines day

Also known as: “Do you believe in ani-love?”

For our Valentine’s Day Single Awareness Day special, we bring on Geoffrey Tebbetts to discuss his contributing blog, Golden Ani. The blog is dedicated to the past 50 years of Japanese Animation, with written reviews by other anime bloggers/big kahunas out there. After a few questions to that, we get to our main topic, our “anime first loves,” where we talk about what anime’s we first fell in love with that really got us into anime. Geoffrey talks about Maison Ikkoku, my co-host Jonn and Josh talk about the glory days of Toonami programming shows that made them anime fans, and I bring up my personal favorite OVA “first love,” Sol Bianca. Oh, and me and Jonn talk about an “en espanol” station, Locomotion.
