Another HallowsEve with the Devilman wanting to play with Dustin and Jonn. This time they review the recent hot (as hell) anime Devilman Crybaby!
(0:00 – 1:01:20) Review: Devilman Crybaby – Dustin concurs that this is the greatest Devilman anime out there so far, and was very popular around podcast and other reviewers at the beginning of the year when it hit Netflix. Yuasa takes special liberties to adapt the manga by adding some spins to it here and there, but it’s one wild ride for all 10 episodes. This also gets the hosts to talk about other Go Nagai works like Demon Lord Dante, the Scary Movie series (and how it relates to Devilman), and other stuff included.
(1:01:20 – 1:43:01) Closing Remarks – This gets the host to go straight into how Love that Goku got fired from the DBZ Emporium, RIP Toonzone and the aborted rebirth of Anime Superhero, how a TZ poster is a Lolcow, the saga of the Rape Van Troll bomber, RIP Gab.ai, Megyn Kelly getting fired, Chris Chan running his own Heavens Gate and Sonichu #16, and much more!

This time we bring a short(er) episode as the hosts grow up in a Fooly Cooly sort of way…
(0:00- 40:00) Review: FLCL Progressive/Alternative – Both FLCL series have finished up on Toonami, and Jonn and Dustin dive head first in to the zany, lazy world on the high school life on growing up. This is more of an overview episode of all three series to kinda briefly summarize our thoughts on Progressive and Alternative. This also gets the episode started with how violent Jonn bird is, Dustin and his substitute teaching gig stories, how CNN bans the word “Mob”, the recent revival of old Adult Swim originals and much more.
(40:00 – 1:19:05) Closing Remarks: At some point we get into this segment (probably really after Jonn internet decides to crap out) to mention the grand return of how Love that Goku is going to run an anime/DBZ store, more stories on troubled teens in school, the Brent Kavanaugh Supreme Court hearing, how socialism works in the land of Chris Chan and much more.

It’s that time of year, where con season is upon us. So to kick things off as usual guests Daft and Cloud return to talk about their yearly trek to Anime Boston!
(0:00 – 51:45) The Anime Boston Chronicles: Chapter Cloud – Our resident Precure fanboy Cloud stops by and fills us in on his adventure at Anime Boston, filled with meeting Guest of Honor, buying stuff and places to eat. To find more detail about his experience go to his blog found here. This also has us chiming in on the Sailor Moon panel, places to eat in Boston, failed Adult Swim pilots about Bostonians, Leiji Matsumoto manga releases, which live action movie was worse, prices from dealers like Anime Asylum and the cel market and much more.
(51:45 – 02:44:35) The Anime Boston Chronicles: Chapter Daft – Daft joins in to go into a longer digest of the “other side” of the convention, including hotel wrasslin matches, good artists at artist ally, getting to meet Steve Blum and how he does his panels, Greg Ayres stories (including what parents thought YAOI meant in the early 2000’s), past video players like Juice Box and Game Boy Advance Video, Toonami April Fools talk, arcade games at the con, old anime trading cards, Jonn dog has a nightmare of Daft’s adventures, Sports talk with Daft and Dustin, and much more!
(02:44:35 – 03:02:37) Closing Remarks: Really nothing much was said other than the occasional Peter Fay and Love That Goku tweets, Daft trying to proposition Cloud sister into wrasslin next year, getting educated on what Easter is all about, and why the Pats let Brady literally kiss their superbowl away.
ED – Fly, Eagles Fly!

This time we discover the lost imaginary nation of Wakanda and hunt down the interests of a black panther in the Marvel universe with our review of Black Panther.
(0:00 – 57:00) Movies Review: Black Panther – Now that the film as of this episode has broken the one billion dollar box office amount, the highest rated movie on Rotten Tomatoes and is the center of American political social media discussion, both Dustin and Jonn just see the film as another Marvel movie. Both get into the politicized rhetoric of online reviewers who praise this movie, Dustin discusses Death Wish and Mazinger Z Infinity as being far better films than Black Panther, and also discuss what we liked and didn’t like about the film.
(57:00 – 2:23:25) Closing Remarks – It’s once again time for opinions about all the events that has happened in the past month since our last episode, which leaded to discussions about gun control, should teachers be armed, Alex Jones v. CNN v. Youtube, the GRAND RETURN of Love That Goku, Dustin attends the Atlanta SciFi Expo (which as of this post, the website is 404, so that should tell you something) in a ghetto mall, Jonn mentions the Black Lightning show, Toonami boob censorship, latest Chris Chan documentary and much more.

To celebrate the belated 30th anniversary of the greatest OVA of all time, Bubblegum Crisis, both Dustin and Jonn thought it would be fitting to celebrate the film that inspired the creation of Bubblegum Crisis, and that is Techno Police 21C.
(0:00 – 1:11:00) Review: The “Ultimate Non-Bubblegum Crisis Review” Techno Police 21C – To all those anime reviewers that were all about the Bubblegum Crisis anniversary and celebrating its monumental achievement to anime, they can go rot for all we care, cuz SCREW THAT NOISE! This podcast gets down to the real roots of where Bubblegum Crisis began, in a dumb, theatrical, cheezy robot film done by the original creator of Bubblegum Crisis, Toshimichi Suzuki. If you the listener are thinking “What the hell’s the AOY Podcast problem not covering Bubblegum Crisis?” (or other problems we have in general), the answer is that Dustin and Jonn covered Bubblegum Crisis for it’s 25th anniversary, and all those episodes are on our review page for you to check out that came from another podcast Jonn and Dustin used to do. This also includes off topic banter about making a bank into a crystal triangle, Mike Judge secret anime stash, retard robots ride the short bus, Dustin Wesley Willis impersonation, this movie inspired other great films to be made, comparisons between Techno Police and Bubblegum Crisis, technical issues and much more!

Such matters as how Love that Goku is out to destroy the Alt-Right, A former TZ Member boycott against My Anime List, Belledona of Sadness was on TCM the same night as Toonami, people on twitter who turned gay from Cartoon Network, live action anime film talk, RIP Bill Paxton and Robert Osbourne and so much more.

LOOKS LIKE WE MADE IT!! 100 episodes, 100 reviews, 100 crappy stories of closing remarks, and more than 100 followers to our site! Well, we decided to do our special review for this episode on Night on the Galatic Railroad as request from Jeff from the Daily Anime Podcast.
(0:00 – 48:00) Review: Night on the Galactic Railroad – So for our special 100th episode, Jeff has graced our presence to taking a ride on the galactic railway to your imagination.. maybe. Galactic Railroad may also be the sleep aid to your insomnia, or your children, which can work with Odin: Photon Space Sailor Starlight. This is an anime that means a lot to Jeff, which Dustin can see some of that in the film. We also dive into off topic (and semi-0n-topic) items such as how we got banned from Twitch.tv for streaming anime/movies, religious and Christian beliefs, how current anime fans get anime compared to the days or finding them at rental stores, and a little more added in. Also to note, Dustin did zero editing to this episode, because screw it, were doing it live!
(48:00 – 1:38:50) Closing Remarks: Oh boy, so much has happened since Jonn and Dustin sat down in front of the mics, and boy is their tales to tell. Everyone has their view on how the election is going, even our non-fellow capitalist Ghost from TCR. On the brighter side, love_that_goku is back and Jonn recants the current events in his life, even how LTG is trying to make his own path from Ecuador to Beirut. We spend too much time on a former ToonZone member and his sexual endeavors, and of course talking about whatever else. All this and much more in our grand 100th episode, and hope for another 100 more!!

It is the day after the resurrection of the son of God for people of the Christian faith. We celebrate this time by either going to a church for the first time since Christmas, getting the day off of school or work for Good Friday, and maybe getting some bible reading thrown in for good measure. However, Zeonic and Jonn decided to keep up with tradition (starting from last year) to watch an anime with Christianity being highly misinterpreted. We look no further than the masterpiece OVA, Crystal Triangle.
(0:00 – 15:10) PreReview Discussion: This is just a way for Jonn and Zeonic to ramble on about things to empty ones mind for the Crystal Triangle holy message to be bestowed upon them. This includes Zeonic ramblings about his computer issues, while Jonn brings up the Social Justice issues about whats going down in Indiana. To be honest, it’s the hosts way of saying “Man, do we ‘really’ have to review Crystal Triangle? Ugh… let’s get this over with…”
(15:10 – 55:12) Review: Crystal Triangle OVA: It’s been a good while since we talked about older anime, so it’s high time we got back into the swing of things. Crystal Triangle seems to be “that” anime that people know about too be “that” anime. Zeonic see’s it as his 2nd worst anime of all time, while Jonn ranks it below his Pilot Candidate “low-end-yard-stick-of-crap.” It’s amazing that at one point, this anime sold on laserdisc for 120 bucks, which in today’s anime world, would anyone in their right mind spend that much for it (other than Mike Toole perhaps?). Perhaps it’s the “engrish” and “lussian” dialect in this anime that’s confused the TRUTH of God’s Message to be fully interpreted for us, which is why we couldn’t take this movie too seriously. We also mention the TRUTHful location of where the bible might be held, forums that don’t like Evangelion, Urashiman on The Anime Network, and Samurai Pizza Cats talk.
(55:12 – 1:19:39) Closing Remarks: This is the part where we look towards our “Podcast Pillars of the Holy Trinity” for spiritual guidance, where we mention the updated accounts of two of those pillars which are Chris Chan and Love_That_Goku. After knowing that Love_That_Goku feeds LARPers dirt, Jonn gives an internet account of what happened at Chris Chan recent trial, which means he’s gonna roam free for a little while longer, and how he might tie up his Gal Pals from high school. Zeonic mentions his accurate predictions off episode one of Sword Art Online 2 to be THE TRUTH, and mention about a guy who will be on a future podcast soon. All this and more in this weeks episode, see yea next time… (aka, stay tuned for the zinger at the end…)

With Banzaicon ending the weekend as this podcast comes out (and Zeonic still getting things ready as he is writing this post the day before he leaves for the con), the crew were able to come together and join in the Holy Trinity once more to be able to review something that ended on Toonami not too long ago. In this episode, you get to ride the funkadelic groove of Zeonic, Jonn and Josh talking about Space Dandy Season 2.
(0:00 – 1:19:14) Review: Space Dandy Season 2: Man, what a hell of an ending to “one hell of a show” – Jonn. I don’t know if anything as unique or interesting as Space Dandy will be made in a very long time, unless another Space Dandy comes out. Or then again, maybe Space Dandy was made to save anime for everyone, because lord knows we need it. We should inform you that we do get to SPOIL things from this past season, as Zeonic is able to read off the episode summaries in wikipedia, while Jonn and Josh get to chime in on what they wanted to say on each episode. Space Dandy should also mark the second time someone has passed away while having a role in the show, as the most recent death of Toshiro Hirata wasn’t too far away. We get to mention that Mike Toole wrote a column for ANN about his favorite episodes, and Ben from AniPages is connecting all the dots to everyone who has worked on this show, and gives his straight forward opinions on them as well. Of course, before we get into anything about Space Dandy, we ramble about getting sex offers on Skype at the beginning of this recording; and then end things off with the state of anime today, mention movies, the end of traditional saturday morning cartoons, along with the recent statuses of Love_That_Goku and Chris Chan. All this and more in this weeks episode.

Well, our March Megazone Madness has come to an end (aka UConn won for those who don’t care about NCAA basketball). One might imagine the joy of ending an OVA trilogy such as this would be a moment of happiness, but all we can tell you is we are just glad the nightmare is over. With two great OVA titles under the Megazone 23 name, you might figure making The Third one would be a greater achievement. Well, we found out the hard way, as Zeonic, Jonn and Josh crawl out of the ruins of Megazone 23 The Third.
Time codes (yea, we had to use these again)
0:00 – 19:05: We pretty much do our usual fare again, by getting off topic since it has been more than 3 weeks since we last recorded something. We deviate off the ZONE by talking about Space Ghost Coast to Coast airing on Adult Swim April Fools Special and the episodes that we happen to see in a half sleep trance, people we know online who watch terrible shows and takes forever to get to their point, and the problems of modern anime fans taste in shows.
19:05 – 1:05:25: We finally decide to talk about our subject matter in this podcast, because the nail had to be re-hammered into the Megazone coffin once more. One has to wonder, how can someone royally screw up an anime series after making 2 other anime OVA’s that were not complete and utter crap? Does anyone know the answer to that? If you do, please enlighten us. This dull Shadowrun/Last Starfighter knockoff has some good ideas, and has things I like; but that feel over the edge and beyond Zone Zero with the mistakes we will mention in this episode to finally close out this classic OVA series. You can expect HARD ON’s, C(U)MING FROM THE REAR, floppy disks, redneck friends, cat ear girls, the 80’s accessories, and how too HACK DA PLANET!!!! at 2 frames a second. We also throw in Homosexual/Anime Con Sign Discrimination, why Aramaki gets to keep making anime, and a few other things.
1:05:25 – 1:26:11: We also finish things up with our final remarks about people who don’t have their priorities in order, people with crazy 9/11 conspiracy stories, and the ongoing legacy of Love_That_Goku. All this and more, as usual.

Today is “Single Awareness Day” (or what the non-nerds call it “Valentines Day“), and to some of you listening to our podcast, are probably yet again as single as one could never hope. But fret not listener, because here at the Anime of Yesteryear Podcast, we are ones too never leave a man (or woman) all alone. We decide to take this opportune day to give back to you listeners out there, by reading off (mostly) the comments we have received over the past year.
Time codes (yea, I decided to do this to make following us a bit easier):
0:00-7:02: It’s pretty much us getting set up and dicking around (as usual) with talking about people who lost their plumbing in their house, demonic dryers in the background and probably other dumb things
7:02-1:20:00: We go ahead and read off our comments covering from our Aliens: Colonial Marines review from last year to our most recent anime collecting episode. We go off on tangents like movies that are kinda long to watch, how Zeonic is terrible with podcast funds and spends those on himself (i.e. EBAY WHY YOU GOTTA USE PAYPAL ALL THE TIME?), and a whole lot more I didn’t write down on my notes when I went to edit this episode. Oh yea, Cody is our number one fan on this podcast, because we mostly read off his comments, because he mostly comments.
1:20:00-1:49:15: Jonn and Zeonic get to blow off mass amount of steam and laugh our butts off at how wonderfully terrible Sword Art Online has become since we last talked about it in October or so. We can assume that it has to be one of Toonami’s best comedy shows on the block, because I have never laughed so hard talking about an anime in a really long time. Oh yea, Archer Vice is where its at.
1:49:15-2:25:44: We then get to talk about the other shows on Toonami, like how One Piece is getting REEEEALLY good in the Water 7 arc, Josh and Jonn discuss the other shows on the block and how they are doing, Clint Eastwood is cool with JoJo’s, and we discuss our thoughts on how great a show like Space Dandy is coming together. We then end it off with closing remarks of people on twitter who don’t want to sell sushi, how Chris Chan’s coffee maker started the fire, Josh won a Toonami T-shirt, and weeaboo’s in school. Of course, all this and more.

After getting through Gundam Month, we decided to stretch our muscles a bit and take on the toughest fighters in the Post-Apocalypse, namely those from Hokuto no Ken (You know, Fist of the North Star). In this episode, we cover the third arc of the HnK universe, which consist of martial artist building giant pyramids using children, fighting you brother for supremacy, and post-apocalypse olympics games. We SPOIL that arc if you don’t know too much about it, like we usually do. I also talk about a really great PC game I played while being sick/being on spring break called Hotline Miami, you should totally check that out too.
We also go off topic on things like our childhood days, including Meme Barney songs from our childhood, jokes about nailing teachers, being sick, bad anime online commercials, Roger Ebert and LucasArts both dying out, and the @Love_That_Goku twitter legacy, and with other things.
Here is our past (podcast) reviews of Fist of the North Star:

This is going to conclude our Gundam Month segment. Since we have not only covered the essential 90’s AU Gundam shows, but we decide to review the latest Gundam Unicorn OVA. This was recorded actually before the rest of our other Gundam recordings kinda, since what we discussed in this episode was still fresh in our heads. And that was all good until we got sidetracked…like, A LOT!
Regardless of a few things we spoiled about this latest OVA, we also went off topic on things such as general Gundam/Anime talk, doing some catching up with our special guest Shin Von Vekou (of our old Kool Kids Klub podcast days), mention the Colorado guy who found Osama Bin Laden, Koichi Ohata ranting on Tomino, stupid anime fan bickering, more Love_that_Goku tweets, the death of Chieko Honda, Soulja Boy music, and I give a brief talk on the latest Tomb Raider game.
Also, Jeff and Andy from the Daily Anime Podcast come in to help us find Laplace’s box.
