We talk about the two biggest titans in the galaxay among anime fans in the early 2000’s, where we review Outlaw Star and Cowboy Bebop!
(0:00 – 45:40) Review: Outlaw Star – This podcast episode is the historic record of the pinnacle of what was important to anime fans on Cartoon Network starting from 2001 and beyond. Outlaw Star was a big anime among the viewers of Toonami, and Dustin heard about this show for years until he finally saw the series shown on Toonami recently for the first time. Both hosts Jonn and Dustin and special guest Daft chime in to talk about the overview of the series with some spoilers thrown in. This also includes how its vital importance that Jonn dad tells Jonn in the call that the dog is eating cheese off the floor, the stupidity of Transformers cartoons, Outlaw Star merch in America, FLCL revival talks, will Hamtaro be on Toonami for Aprils Fools Night? (as of this writing, Adult Swim showed FLCL Alternative subtitled on TV, followed by Mind Game, and a bunch of the regular block airing in the same format, because I’m writing this about 1am on April Fools night – Dustin), Toonami censorship on TV and much more.
(45:40 – 1:39:00) Review: Cowboy Bebop – This episode marks the 20th anniversary since the anime first aired on TV Tokyo, and how it later showed up that late summer on the new Adult Swim block on Cartoon Network in 2001. Both hosts recant how much of an impact Bebop has had on them as anime fans all these years later, including the merch that’s out there (you can find the pdf of the Bebop Anime Guides here at my blog – Dustin). This goes into account what particular episode got Dustin involved in Bebop, our top 3 Bebop episodes, the TV edits, and a whole lot more!
(1:39:00 – 3:05:30) Closing Remarks – This is chock full of material that covers for the month of March since we last recorded, including how Love that Goku got social services on his butt, Linkara leaving TGWTG and the twitter thread full of the company drama, Meson in dire need, the fully funded Kickstarter for Gunsmith Cats, The Toys That Made Us Netflix Documentary series, Dustin con talks on Toylanta and SC Comic Con, RIP Toys R Us/southern food stores/Return of KB Toys, the Mystery of Miami Mike finally solved by The Anime Nostalgia Podcast and the stupid weeaboo drama that follows on the ANN Forums, Dustin mentions his thoughts on Pacific Rim 2, and much more!

Also known as: “I’d rather watch movies with Jessica Alba 100 times than watch this shit again!”

I know were supposed to be an anime “podcast” and what not, but when it comes to super hero movies, we can’t help but to cover them on our anime beat. This time we got Jonn and Daft covering the recent box office flop, Fantastic 4.
(0:00 – 17:35) Pre-Review Discussion – This could have been used at the end, but Zeonic just kinda let it be for this podcast. Speaking of Zeonic, he wasn’t on this episode, because he didn’t see Fantastic Four, and this recording was made before the Dragonball Z: Resurrection of F review we put out 2 episodes ago. Here we have Jonn and Daft talking about anime shows, Linkara ranting on Power Rangers Samurai, how Power Rangers sucks, popular cartoons on television now, and Dragonball Super problems.
(17:15 – 1:58:35) Non- Anime Review: Fantastic 4 (2015) – It seems that when movies have problems at the start of the development, they seem to really show by the final product. This seems to be the case for Fantastic 4, which Jonn and Daft spent the rest of the podcast breaking down scene by scene to state their issues with the movie. They go into the backstory on how the director used 4chan to vent his frustrations about the film, and even air some more drama behind the scenes. The two also discuss Marvel movies and TV series in general, and much more in this weeks episode.
We should also note, the episode is at 64kbps, so it’s going to help the file size being smaller, while lowering the quality a bit, but let us know if you can tell the difference.
OP – Get ready to fear, there here, FANTASTIC FOUR!!
ED – I wonder if the 2000’s films were better?
