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.

It’s once again time to bust out another RightStuf product review, intermixing with American politics. This time we have Mobile Report Gundam Wing… AGAIN!
(0:00 – 58:20) Review: Mobile Report Gundam Wing (PART DEUX) – It’s been about five years since we last talked about Gundam Wing, so if you account what was said then and now, you’ll get the most in depth Gundam Wing review in the history of ever. This was Dustin re-watch of a series he hasn’t laid eyes on in 18 years, and boy was it ever the trip through time for him. This review is more of the in depth political spectrum review of Gundam Wing, which the politics were never understood by ANYONE who watched this on Toonami 18 years ago. This also includes the acting roles of Campbell Lane, why Wing was popular on Toonami, shout outs to Daily Anime Podcast and the secret episode that NEVER WAS, Dustin reasons for cutting back on liquor, and a whole lot more.
(58:20 – 02:39:34) The “State-Of-The-Union” Closing Remarks – To anyone who heard or saw the American State of the Union address, both Jonn and Dustin give their accounts and rants on what was said, seen, and about American politics in general. This should come to no one surprise to those who ever listened to a single second of this podcast closing remarks, because politics comes up in the discussion all the time. This also includes Ghost TCR commentary, Dustin breaks out his inner Alex Jones once again, the life of Barron Trump, Goof Troop discussion, The Legacy of South Carolina Senator Strom Thurmond, cryptocurrency rants, the 2018 State of the Podcast address, and much more.

Happy New Year!!! 2018 will be our year and savior for humanity until such time when social media says its the worst year ever (like the end of every year on Twitter). So what better way to reign in the new year with our hosts ranting about Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
(0:00 – 2:40:15) The Dark Side Review! Star Wars: The Last Jedi – This film seems to be equally split between those who love and hate this film, just like the balance of the force. Dustin, Jonn and guest Vekou (who shows up about 45 minutes in) state their views on the film. As you can expect, spoilers are afoot in great detail. This lets us compare the Star Wars films to the Fast and Furious film series, how Jonn dog spoke up for animal rights on this film, how Disney can royally screw up a beloved science fiction series, and much more!
(2:40:15 – 4:27:09) Christmas Closing Remarks – This was recorded the next night with Jonn and Dustin keeping the mics warm on a post Christmas night, and more sound proof for Dustin since he recorded in his “sound proof” safe space closet (making his mic sound louder in the process). The remarks include bathroom gender rules, Dustin panels at Big Fandom Greenville, more Star Wars talk, what we got for Christmas, upcoming AnimEigo Kickstarters, video game talk, James Bond talk, Dustin Christmas movies he saw this year, 80’s cartoon themes and the goofyness of Voltron, Chris Chan and Ghost talk, the fall of Bitcoin and so much more!

It’s an Alvis Day miracle to have another yearly Christmas Special ready to go! So this year Jonn and Dustin talk about another miracle of an anime that we never thought would be fansubbed, but it came to fruition. This year we review Penguin’s Memory.
(0:00 – 35:15) Alvis Day Review: Penguins Memory – This is an anime that has been mentioned on this podcast in the past many times, but it was only a matter of time before certain fansubbers finally got around to making this anime to the anime fandom public. It’s like the movie The Deer Hunter, but with penguins, only it’s not really The Deer Hunter. Penguins Memory is a unique film based off the premise off Suntory Beer ads mixed in with the common ethos of 1980’s Vietnam War movies at the time. It’s truly a film that anime fans need to check out eventually. Along with both hosts staying on topic for once, there is the off topic discussions of how CW superhero shows are trash, the passing of Hiromi Tsuru and other anime featuring animals fighting in wars.
(35:15 – 1:39:35) Closing Remarks – Typical banter follows this segment with Chris Chan latest stupidity on video and stuff about Ghost from TCR. Included is how Dustin has finally graduated university (since he’s been in school since three podcasts ago), the failings of Roy Moore, the US soldier that defected to North Korea died recently, how dumb people Master thesis’s can be, Thor 3 and Justice League discussion, upcoming movies in 2018, the Disney/Fox merger and a whole lot more. Stay tuned for the greatest religious story ever told by Captain Murphy in the zinger.

Holy Crap, two podcast episodes a week apart! How can that be? Well it is, and Dustin and Jonn are able to give you another RightStuf corporate sponsored Gundam podcast. Not only do we review what goodies we got in the mail from RighStuf, but also review Gundam Thunderbolt and Belladonna of Sadness.
(0:00 – 1:05:00) RightStuf GundamCast Review: Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt – It’s been months, but were here to deliver more Gundam to you guys. This time Jonn and Dustin review the web short series Gundam Thunderbolt, which for a one year war Gundam short, its probably the darkest that One Year War Gundam has done so far. Both hosts discuss the ONA, but also mention gross number statistics of estimated losses in the One Year War, trying to compare those numbers with losses in World War II, AU vs UC content, the different kinds of Jazz that exist, upcoming Gundam Bluray content and reviews of content currently out and much more.
(1:05:00 – 1:26:40) Your Grandpa’s Hidden Anime Porn Review: Belladonna of Sadness – Belladonna is the oldest anime we’ve reviewed so far on this site, and by far the most visually interesting since Angel’s Egg. Despite being an art house smut style movie produced by Osamu Tezuka, it has a decent story to go with it which is loosely based off this book. But none of that matters when you got psychedelic imagery of phallic animation being shown on screen (links NSFW just FYI). This also gets Jonn and Dustin talking about the other works by director Eiichi Yamamoto, the sexual revolution in the 1960’s, and what kind of people (other than the hosts) that would find out about this anime at 2 a.m. on a Saturday night on TCM.
(1:26:40 – 2:00:37) Closing Remarks: Nothing too much to say, other than Chris Chan has a new GF, which a new saga will unfold from that. Dustin has joined up with a local Gundam group, Ted Cruz leaked porn scandal, Jonn trolls the podcast with trains and more.
OP1 – War gets harder towards the end…
OP2 – BRELLADONNAAHHH…
