What a perfect way to release a podcast about con reviews from nearly 6 months ago before going to a major con like Anime Weekend Atlanta mere hours away. These are the stories of MomoCon and Anime Boston of 2022.

(0:00 – 25:30) Pre-Con Talk Nonsense: Daft and Dustin talk for a bit before diving into Dusitn trip to Momocon this year in replacing the annual Animazement trip because circumstances worked in far better favor for Dustin to go to Momo than Animazement. This goes into AMV talk and mentioning the Synced Together Documentary playing at your local major con, Anime Boston AMV Results, Ice Cream truck imposters in Jonn neighborhood, and crazy girl stories from Dustin.

(25:30 – 1:37:05) MomoCon 2022 Talk: Dustin dives into his first impressions of Momocon, and was not dissapointed in the slightest. This goes into Gundam Battle Pods, meeting Power Rangers and My Hero voice actors, locations in Texas, Explaining to people what a Bucees is, state liquor sale laws, Netflix Bebop and One Piece talk, weed laws in Fulton County, Daft recounts the AMV competition for Dustin, CW shows and the latest Chris Chan News as of June 2022.

(1:37:05 – 2:45:25) Anime Boston Talk: Daft recounts his tale of having the most comfortable living situation he’s ever had at a convention, pre-Register line talk between both Anime Boston and Momocon, Covid policies between conventions, cosplayer talk, Dustin meeting Carl Horn again at Momocon, panels discussions, Daft talks about the Discotek Panel, Let’s Go Brandon merch, Nick Fuentes gets brought up for some reason, and a whole lot more!

So you thought it might be another couple of months before our next episode, well we’ve come to prove you wrong! We got a double dose of content in this batch with our review of Hathaway’s Flash and The Book of Boba Fett.

(0:00 – 44:55) Opening Remarks – Somehow “Ok so let’s start talking about Gundam” turned into a hodgepodge of closing remark material to kick off this episode. But hey, its all good. This gets into probably the podcast no one asked for that requires a YouTuber to give commentary on, the Shenmue anime that is on Toonami, differences of electrical outlets in different parts of the world, video gaming talk, Dustin having the ability to watch whatever he wants to on physical media, coming back around to Sol Bianca, Discotek media releases, crazy girls online, how to promote 90’s nostalgia for GenZeerz, minor Chris Chan talk and a few more things.

(44:55 – 1:28:04) Review: Hathaway’s Flash – So far this is the best Gundam to happen to Gundam in a decade (minus Unicorn probably). For a film that came out last year that is adapting a book from 1989, both host find great promise in where this story is going to lead the viewer in the next two films. This gets into The Great Reset talk, politics in Gundam, an upcoming re-enactment of what Dustin believes Bright Noa is going to do to Hathaway, anime releases on Bluray, the world of Crowdfunding, Dustin first thoughts on Bean Bandit Kickstarter release, and much more.

(1:28:04 – 2:10:24) Review: The Book of Boba Fett – Both Dustin and Jonn were very impressed with the latest Filoni series by Disney+, and both go into detail on what they liked and didn’t like about the series that has been properly named The Mandalorian Season 2.5. This also gets into Star Wars canonical debates, general Star Wars talk, Dustin fouling up once again on who is going to win the Super Bowl, WILL THERE BE ANOTHER PODCAST WHEN WW3 STARTS?!?!, and much more.

OP – It’s actually a pretty good Gundam…

For our Halloween special, the AoY crew decides to give a proper send off to the late Takao Saito by reviewing the first adaptation of Golgo 13 to film back in 1973.

(0:00 – 46:35) Ken Takakura Shoots and Scores! Golgo 13 Review: We figured the best way to honor the late Saito is to review the earliest Golgo 13 manga to film adaptation back in 1973. This would be Jonn first time seeing this film, and Dustin’s second time. Dustin has even written an article online about this film during his days in college, which can be found here. It’s has also been nearly a decade and two podcast series ago since Dustin and Jonn talked about a Golgo 13 film in a podcast episode, so its good to dust off the old M-16 once again. This also contains the psyche of Golgo 13, firearms talk, Crying Freeman, James Bond and much more!

For those headed to Anime Weekend Atlanta 2021, Dustin will be hosting The Wide World of Initial D: A Comprehensive History and That B.A.D Panel (Bad Anime Dubbing) on Saturday, October 30th back-to-back from 3:15 to 5:30pm. We hope to see you there!

(46:35 – 2:19:54) The cesspool that is always Closing Remarks: This includes Richard Epcar early acting roles on Street Hawk, anime on the Sci Fi Channel, the cheezyness of Descendants of Darkness, TV ratings, RIP shoutout to Norm MacDonald, the current status of the COVID vaccine, Chris Chan is the second coming of Jesus, Batman ’66 discussion, The Troubles and European politics, Yaz adapting Cucuruz Doan Island to a film, anime we’ve been watching like High Speed Galvion and much more!

OP – NO ONE CAN MAKE THAT SHOT!

AoY Podcast #140 – Anime Grindhouse Double Feature (Alita: Battle Angel / Gundam NT Review)


Also known as: “Do dem robot titties got milk in ’em?”

And also: “The Sun Devils are heading a little closer to the sun…”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 4:54:19)

We could’t go through the month of March without posting up something for you guys, so we’ve decided to just bunch everything into a super sized podcast double feature of Alita: Battle Angel and Gundam NT.

(0:00 – 1:02:10) Review: Alita: Battle Angel – Hitting off one of the super anime type movies for the month of February is the acclaimed Alita film, which did not get the type of negative feedback like Ghost in the Shell got a while ago. Both Dustin and Jonn go into the film and compare the film setting to what was used from the manga/anime. This also gets them talking about other fine films from Robert Rodriguez, the future of upcoming “soon to be” anime-to-live action films, don’t ever buy a Mitsubishi Mirage and much more.

(1:02:10 – 2:32:03) Closing Remarks from early March: These are more recent discussions from when we recorded this segment at the beginning of this month, to include topics such as Dustin going to AgamaCon and SC Comicon, chilling with Tiffany Grant (EDIT: Check our Review section for our Tiffany Grant interview because the audio link to the Tiffany Grant interview showed up on iTunes instead of our real podcast episode, so hopefully by removing the link that was here before that should get things fixed), getting to meet WWF wrasslers, Dustin chair breaks mid-recording, the Meson saga update, the epic Joe Rogan/Alex Jones Return episode talk(aka SCREW YOU JONES, WE OUT DID THE LENGTH OF THAT PODCAST SUCKAHHH!), Dustin and Josh troll Ghost on his new show, RIP Jan Micheal Vincent and Keith Flint and much more.

(2:32:03 – 2:33:14) Rightstuf Promo

(2:33:14 – 3:17:30) Review: Gundam NT Narrative – This was recorded at the end of February, which cinematic time wise it’s what came next in theaters after Alita. This particular film was a first for Gundam in America, since it’s the only Gundam property to make it to the big screen (and did so successfully than say another film), but was meet rather poorly, at least to Dustin point of view when he was awake during the film. Both Jonn and Dustin had different ideas on what the film could’ve been, which Dustin would’ve been fine with a Kelly’s Heroes Gundam type movie the way it should’ve been. This also discuss the biggest Unicorn podcasters in the past few years, some Alita talk and much more.

(3:17:30 – 4:54:19) Closing Remarks: Only a handful of things to discuss in this one, but one in particular just made us a pure VICtim to the online drama surrounding the whole #KickVic fiasco. This also includes shady Filipino eBay people, our thoughts on that Green New Deal bouncing around out there, RightStuf Gundam talk, what would America be like if John McAfee got elected as our next president and much more.

Music Selection:

OP 1 – And now our feature presentation…

ED 1 – RIP Keith Flint…

OP 2 – There’s a girl with a heart, as big as a Gundam…

ED – That deaf, dumb and snot nosed kid sure plays a mean Shogi…

(0:00 – 1:00:40) Review: Dragon Ball Super Broly – Jonn and Dustin were able to see the latest Dragonball on the silver screen again, and give their thoughts on the film with of course some spoilers thrown in. This also includes talk on Dustin report from the Gator Bowl, how Aggie fans are proud of cutting off Longhorn horns, Power Rangers talk, Jonn internet problems and the Texan way of handling them, Dragonball Z games and much more.

(1:00:40 – 2:07:54) The RightStuf Anime Funtime Closing Remarks – There isn’t really a proper closing remarks this time seeing how so much has happened in the month of Janurary, but this is time for Jonn and Dustin to mention their thoughts on titles like G Gundam, Aura Battler Dunbine and Rurouni Kenshin.
