We’ll be kicking off some reviews of series that have ended on Toonami recently, starting with our discussion about JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable.

(0:00 – 53:10) Review: JoJo’s Time!! – With this Arc/Part/Season/Wutevahdehell you wanna call Diamond is Unbreakable, Dustin and Jonn try our best to recollect the past year in our parts of the series that stuck out to them while the series was airing on Toonami. As of this post, the new series Golden Wind will be airing on Toonami, so totally check that out! This also gets into discussions of Batman/Jim Carry 90’s movie talks, how college is bullcrap, the scoop on a wedding going down, and much more.

(53:10 – 2:00:03) Closing Remarks- It isn’t a proper closing remarks without some remarks on things that happened on the internet over a month ago. This time we got the leaked audio of what REALLY is said at Funimation, CR Reborn talk, Dustin and his latest saga in avoiding another crappy job, Uzumaki promo, what Dustin will be doing at Anime Weekend Atlanta, Trump talk with a dash of Biblical Prophecy talk mixed in, and much more.

Well, this is going to conclude our Gundam Month segment for quite a while, until there is new Gundam to come out to talk about. After over three years of podcast’s between different names and people, we are here to finally finish out our Gundam Month segments; as we dive into the newtype rainbow of Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Episode 7: Over the Rainbow.

Gundam Unicorn 7 was able to answer some questions to a lot of Gundam fans as to “kinda” tell what happens after Char’s Counterattack, as we discuss the events and story behind this final OVA spanning over 4 years now. You can expect to find giant mobile armors with TONS AND TONS OF GUNS EVERYWHERE, newtype acid trips, newtype ghosts, colony lasers, and how newtypes were destined to have political positions. We were able to have Andy from the Daily Anime Podcast join us to talk about this OVA, which got us to talk about the new Godzilla movie in the beginning of this recording, angry autistic’s on tumblr, autistic’s against Funimation getting Gundam, catching Andy up on our favorite LolCow, us bro’s having bro crushes on Suichi Ikeda, (I ment to say George Washington not Thomas Jefferson for those history people out there, my bad), how smoking is an issue in Universal Century (the quote is found somewhere on this page but I’ll post the quote after this paragraph), bad writers and more general Gundam talk plus more than that.

Here is the quote Jonn used in his closing remarks: “The poison called tobacco, which was once almost extinct in the old ages, still lingered in the days of Universal Century 0096. This was the result of tobacco quality improving as a result of the space age, like the reduction of tar to reduce the negative effects on the human body and the intricate machines, and the development of chemicals that combust at low temperatures in tobacco, but most people felt that the biggest reason for the revival of tobacco was the One Year War.”

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 #16 – The Toonami Filler Podcast (with Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon)


Tenchi_Muyo_GXP

Also known as: “Who the hell would make an emulator outta that?”
or could be: “Zee Eye Gee, Zee… Slash ON!”

Ok, so there is still no Gundam: The Origin podcast episode just yet, but its coming soon ( I guess???). But what me and my co-host Jonn decided to add in more podcast filler with… us discussing Toonami shows. We’ve been keeping up with Toonami since it started last year, which leads us to watch most of what comes on TV at night (mostly through DVR recordings/using the old VCR). The one show that we have been keeping up with from beginning to end was Tenchi Muyo GXP.

Tenchi Muyo GXP is not a great show by any means, but I will go out on a limb to say it was the one show that had both of our attention to watch from beginning to end. I wanted to watch it because I (secretly) wanted to watch Tenchi anything on TV again, because its been over a decade since I’ve had that enjoyment. This also leads to us talking about the Tenchi series in general.

After that, I talk about my first time playing Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon (i.e, Micheal Biehn: The Video Game). This was my first introduction to the Far Cry series, and I gotta say, I was impressed.

But that’s not all! This episode was to originally end with those two things as our main topics, but since One Piece came back on TV for the first time in 5 years, we wanted to give our feedback on that also (especially for me being a first time viewer for the show). We also mention in this episode general anime talk, general Toonami talk, the failed Funimation One Piece livestream marathon, some audio issues, some video game talk, and much more.
