In true AoY podcasting tradition, when episodes keep piling up, it’s time to bundle them all together a-la Thanksgiving Special! Were gonna give you listeners a 3-in-1 Bundleru special with Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Dragonball Super, and Primal!…
(0:00 – 01:04:00) Serving #1: A Stand Alone Complex (sorta) Review – Everything in this write-up was written sometime last month, but better late than never. This review is more of a revelation on what Dustin has been missing out on for the past 15 years by finally getting around to watching both Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex series. We cover what we can remember of the show, so expect there to be some spoilers afoot. This also gets into where in the hell Jonn was recording from in GodKnowsWhere, Texas, how Smore and their treatment of Galaxy Express 999, how Hash is a terrible Southern Delight, LIVE USER FAN MAIL!, and much more…
(34:20 – 45:40) “Hold On! I’ll call your right back!” Music Interlude – Jonn spirit journey was cut short and he cut out from the call, so DJ ZeekDaPhreek steps up to play 80’s metal music like Judas Priest and W.A.S.P.
(01:04:00 – 02:02:07) Closing Remarks 1 – This consists of Dustin saying goodbye to a very close friend, RIP Robert Axelrod, SouthEast Gaming Expo talk, changes in podcast hosts over at the ANNCast, #KickVic court discussion, how AniTubers are trash and much more…
(02:02:07 – 02:59:50) Serving#2: The overly late Halloween Special that is now a Thanksgiving Special – Primal and Dragonball Super – Primal is by far the best thing Tartakovsky has done, although Samurai Jack fans will beg to differ with that statement, but screw em! After discussing how great of show with the least amount of episodes shown so far, we then go into DB Super with a longer amount of episodes show that still had a good story in the end. This also goes into Dragonball in general and much more!
(02:59:50 – 04:15:04) Closing Remarks 2 – This includes the #KickVic/WeebWarz saga, Dustin part of Bmar Ghost Trolling Colab 3, Middle East politics and politics all around, Trolling AOC at a Town Hall, The American Moloch religion, Timbox new movie script Tim Zarus, Jonn internet acting crappy, Bible/Catholic talk and much more!

E3 is over and done with with a new line up of games coming out that both Jonn and Dustin discuss a little bit…
(0:00 – 54:40) E3 Talk – With the absence of Sony showing up, Dustin and Jonn took this year as a sign of “why should we even care?” But of course, there was some good to come from E3. This also goes into discussion about Final Fantasy 7 and the Final Fantasy world, Dustin views on Halo, Jonn mentions Harlan Ellison legacy, salty Power Rangers fans, upcoming game titles were looking forward too and much more!
(54:40 – 1:22:31) Closing Remarks – This was more anime related where Jonn talks about his memorable quotes from Ambassador Magma, Dustin was very entertained with Girls und Panzer, a brief talk on John Wick 3, Dustin brings out his inner American Idol talent to run that Ghost in the Shell SAC ending into the ground, Chris Chan news and much more!

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.

Another year of E3 means another year of hype, rants, and the strange tangents from the hosts. So get plugged in, get angry, get excited and get lost in the world of the 2018 E3 episode!
(0:00 – 46:25) E3 2018 – Overall the hosts thought this show was rather meh when you balance out the good, the bad and the mediocrity of E3. This goes into Dustin and Jonn summing up the conferences from EA, Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo and others that caught their interest. Both hosts go into their thoughts on games that will be coming out that were either announced or showed more gamplay too them at the expo. Included in this segment is making fun of the Xbox system names, how Cyberpunk 2077 is the best announcement, game footage censorship on Disney XD, hipsters and them making theoretical avacado toast food trucks and much more.
(46:25 – 1:02:05) Video Game Closing Remarks – Here Dustin and Jonn talk about what they’ve been playing recently, with Dustin trying out Night Trap and beating it for the first time ever on the PS4, who played the mom on Secret World of Alex Mack, a real movie called Night Trap with Robert Davi and Micheal Ironside, thoughts on the Goldeneye PS3 game, Jonn playing games on the Switch like Zelda and Sonic Forces, Hokuto no Gotoku getting an American release and more.
(1:02:05 – 1:56:00) Closing Remarks – This should come to no surprise that both hosts spend about equal if not greater time on this segment, with discussions on how Trump saved the world with North Korea, the South Carolina Primary Election coverage, American politics rant, Archer latest season sucking, and much more!!

After about 5 months of not putting out any con coverages, Dustin thought we can just double up and OD our listeners with two major cons in one episode with Animazement and Anime Weekend Atlanta.
(0:00 – 2:16:45) Animazement 2017 Review – Do people other than this podcast talk about cons 5 months after they happen? Well who knows, but it’s coming out now finally! Of course, this doesn’t go into Animazement immediately, not when Jonn had something to say about not going to see the failed assassination of Jason David Frank at Phoenix Comic Con. Jonn also talks about the dumb weapons policies to “protect” attendees that are not JDF and Robotech. It’s still about roughly 30 or so minutes in that Dustin talks about his con experience at Animazement. Included in this review is stories of the inside world of Limited Run Games, seeing your old teenhood house for the first time in years, how Strafe is inferior to Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, nerds who fail at hitting on girls, Justin Roland stories, people who bring their cats to cons, Antifa v. Street Preachers, not seeing this years Anime Hell, the History of Animazement, meeting forum members IRL, closing remarks of Timbox/Chris Chan and much more.
(2:16:45 – 4:49:07) AWA 2017 Review – Here’s a con that happened within a month that we can get a decent review out in time. This was Dustin first time going to AWA, and based on his 2 day experience, it’s a con worth going back too. This of course comes with meeting anime fan legends like Dave Merrill, Daryl Surat, Walter Amos, Neil Nadelman, and meeting new fans while there as well. This is also another instance where rooming with another forum member makes the con a better experience, and even doing a podcast drunk with them is also fun. Included is how Hell is done at AWA, old school anime dubs, buying up anime vinyl records and playing them on this recording, and more. Closing Remarks are about how the podcast is trying to monitize, the Las Vegas shooting/gun control laws discussion (there’s a part I meant to say was an amendment but said constitution by mistake. So if you caught that, my bad), Chris Chan relationship ends (before it ever got started), Jonn squeaky chair chimes in, Final Fantasy games, Dustin owning an SNES Classic and much more!

So to stay with proper convention review tradition, Dustin brings us his convention coverage of Animazement, 3 months after it happened, because that’s how we roll on this podcast.
(0:00 – 1:28:05) Con Report: Animazement 2016 – Because the summer was full of other episodes of topics that had a more pressing matter to be put out, Dustin finally tells his tale of his yearly trek to Animazement. All in all, between being stuck down in the dealers room dungeon by day and hitting up the virtual arcade streets of Initial D by night, this was a rather laid back year for Dustin. Of course, it wasn’t entirely that boring since he went on his tales of playing really good VR and arcade games in turn for house sitting at Mighty Rabbit Studios over the con weekend, working the dealers room beat, meeting up with old friends of the Initial D arcade scene, items to be sold and had and much more. This also goes off track a bit with Jonn and Dustin talking about retro gaming, recording the Animeigo panel, what is true cyberpunk, Dustin idea anime panels to get approved, and still more to add.
(1:28:05 – 1:38:17) Closing Remarks – This didn’t last that long since the news was rather irrelevant from things TCR Ghost said back in May, card game talk, people on ani-twitter gripe against anime cons, cats and more. Pretty soon well be getting to episode 100…
SPEAKING OF OUR UPCOMING 100TH EPISODE!!: Here’s the deal: Episode 100 is coming up and both hosts want you listeners to send us some suggestions on what to do. Should we read email sent by you? Should we do a review of something? Show off our anime collection on video? Demolition Derby? I dunno, you tell us! So to send us suggestions, email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or you could tweet at us over at@AoYPodcast. It’s that simple to use guys! Depending on how many people submit ideas, Dustin and Jonn will pick the most doable idea and execute it, and there will be recognition for it! So let the podcast know by Episode 99 and we’ll see what happens!
