So its been about November since we reviewed any older anime, and it’s high time we bring that back to the listeners. This time, both hosts Dustin and Jonn hop aboard the Kamiya and set sail on a wild adventure with our favorite womanizing space explorer, in Space Adventure Cobra: The Movie.
(0:00 – 55:58) Review: Space Adventure Cobra: The Movie – This is a film both Dustin and Jonn have been looking at for a couple of years now to review, and now both host have finally set their eyes towards the galaxy of high anime adventure. This Cobra film was a blast from start to finish, and it never stopped anywhere for a second to slow down. Cobra wants to tell you a story and fully expects you to strap in and hold on from start to finish, all the while having a blast in the process. This is full of babes, guns, space, ice planets and people who CANT MAKE THAT SHOT! Both host go into the film from start to finish, but that shouldn’t sway your opinion to not watch this thing. There were some off-topic stops during the review about Dustin watching Space Pirate Captain Harlock on Hulu, Hulu vs. Netflix, CPF talks about the dubbing on Harlock, our co-host Josh and his snoring issues, discussing Cobra TV, manga and the movie, people who are terrible fansub groups, nipples in anime, MSNBC vs. ani-twitter and more.
(36:08 – 38:30) Podcast Promo’s – It’s been a while since the last time we added podcast promo’s, so we should again give credit where credit is due. Anime World Order has been on the podcast beat for 10 years now, and they decided to spend their episode talking about shows from last year, and a promise of a high speed drifting review coming next… maybe. Jeff from the Daily Anime Podcast last spent his episode talking to his girlfriend/aka Love Plus waifu jailbait. Seriously, Jeff don’t do that again, but you at least explained why you did it, but no more…. EVER AGAIN! Fast Karate came back to talk about games, and make fun of Edgar from 24, which made Dustin laugh the hardest at a Fast Karate episode for the first time in a couple of years. They also lasted 10 years, but that was months ago, so let’s move on.
(55:58 – 1:31:53) Closing Remarks – The review conversation naturally transitions into discussing people who can’t figure out voice actors, Dustin gives advice on how to make his girlfriend Dori into a Gundam fan, failed promoters for our podcast, Dustin turned 30 (i.e. his “otaku expiration date” has come and must be renewed) and celebrated the occasion by watching Logan’s Run, 70’s science fiction movies talk, we say RIP to Lemmy Kilmister, David Bowie, Alan Rickman and Glenn Frey, America and their “Fast and Furious” goof on El Chapo, Chris Chan news, people who are white knights for Chris at places that Dustin knew in Raleigh, and comic book store bathroom troubles. All this an much more in this weeks episode.
OP – In a podcast review not too far, far away…
ED – RIP Glenn Frey…
This show has:
RIP Capital Comics…
Micheal York might have a point about being 30…
Check out the Cobra English Pilot… pretty sweet stuff…
AoY Podcast #73 – Taking on Indiegogo Perks #1 (The Legend of Black Heaven Review)
Also known as: “Hard Rock TO SAVE TEH SPACE!”
Download Episode HERE! (Total Time – 55:30)
Hey, remember when we used to do anime reviews? Yea, the gang vaguely remembers doing them also. But hey, were back on the anime beat, and this time we start to cover those Indiegogo perks we promised at the early part of the year. This time we got a request from Sean Ryan from the Alpha Counter podcast to issue us the most rockin anime out there, The Legend of Black Heaven.
Again, we don’t need no time codes for this episode, since it was Zeonic and Sean sitting in the middle of a back ally hallway of the Marriott late Saturday night during Animazement. This is also where frequent con goers and hotel staff kept coming by us during the recording, which was near the most desired restroom in the entire hotel mind you, so you’ll hear zingers of that at the end of the episode. The Legend of Black Heaven is an anime Zeonic has always heard good things about over the years, and finally had the chance to watch and thoroughly enjoy this OVA. Even though Black Heaven is more relatable to people reaching their Logan’s Run age expiration date and beyond, anyone can pick up this title and enjoy it, wither you are musically inclined or not. This would also be this podcast second review of anime based off music, since our first one was about To-Y 2 years ago. Of course, you can expect some “sidebar” discussions about anime Terry Crews, talking about music in general, how american football is really “handegg,” Masters of the Universe movie synopsis, and Zeonic gets the hiccups. All this and much more in this this weeks episode…
OP – Get ready to go backstage with Zeonic and Sean
ED – The moral of this anime is, don’t start a band…
This show has:
Dunno why Zeonic first thought of anime Terry Crews was in Friday After Next, but that is how his pimp mind works sometimes…
And you wonder why the Japanese have a hard time understanding Americans…
In general, AMV’s are the worst way to promote a show to make someone think it’s going to be great. However, this AMV is an exception, just go see Black Heaven already.
Per request by Sean Ryan…
AoY Podcast #55 – BanzaiCon III (2014) Con Report
Also known as: “Isn’t that the best picture you ever seen of Charleton Heston?”
Download Episode Here!! (Total Time: 1:18:20)
So this episode might be the only thing released in November, but oh well, since thats how it goes when papers are due and test are being studied for. At least this time for Zeonic sake, a con report isn’t released 3 months after the con ended, but only by a month!! We totally know what were doing, as Zeonic gets to dive into his adventures about BanzaiCon 2014!
(0:00 – 1:06:41) Con Report: BanzaiCon III (2014): This is the first time Zeonic has stayed for a South Carolina con for more than a day, and he has some good ventures out of his experience. This is all entailed about getting locked out of your car, cats that break computer equipment, broken air conditioning systems, watching SEC college football, getting rid of junk, people who leave shoes in con rooms, meeting cool Trekkies, and outdoing other people’s panels (at least in Zeonic mind). Of course for no logical reason, Jonn and Zeonic spiral off topic throughout the podcast about RightStuf getting Gundam, the gradual death of American Cartoons, a GIGANTIC discussion about Science Fiction films/books/etc, Ultraman talk and much more.
(1:06:41 – 1:18:20) Bonus Content: Here is the part of the podcast where Zeonic recorded the conversations from the older con attendees at BanzaiCon, where they relish in telling tales about debating the writings by Richard Matheson, Science Fiction movies, and drinking all in good fun. About half way through that the audio will fade out and in to indicate the break of when the group went out to smoke and then came back at the table. So enjoy the bonus!!
