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.

 If you wanna see the version we saw, here is the Manga UK version on YouTube from the same guy who posted up Part 2. If anything, at least enjoy it for the dub.

AoY Podcast #35 – Valentines Day Special 2014 (Comments/Toonami Talk)


Sword Art Online Survivor

Also known as: “I AM A BEATER!!!”
or also: “So, is Japan the Alabama of Asia or something?”

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.

Music Selection:

OP- Is this considered the underlining theme song to Sword Art Online?

ED- This proves that we are jerks to others

This show has:


JR, I THINK HES GONNA JUMP FROM THE STATUE!!!


This is a tribute…. to the greatest song in the world…


A product of AnimEigo dubs in the 90’s…

AoY Podcast #15 – NashiCon 2013 Report


DSC_0291

Also known as: “RAVE LIFE MAN!”

or: “This podcast is totally indie weeaboo hipster.”

Although I gave a hint in our last post about Gundam: The Origin being the next possible episode, we don’t have that recording just yet. But, I was able to kill a Saturday by going to one of South Carolina’s local anime conventions, NashiCon. If you are reading this and you went to NashiCon this year, you probably had a good time, especially if it was your first convention. However, my thoughts are not entirely with you on that one, as I get to break down the things that transpired before me with other nerds.

I talked about the panels I went too (and the one I did that Saturday night), certain con-goers and their downfalls, chilling with friends, certain facebook people, video game talk, @Love_that_Goku talk and much more. I do wanna thank the staff for doing such a good job in not letting the convention center burn down to the ground, and other things included. Also, there is a weird audio problem where I was trying to transition into talking about the Digimon panel I went to, just FYI.

AoY Podcast #14: Hokuto no Ken Arc 3 / Hotline Miami Review


souther2

Also known as: “Let’s go out to lunch, LUNCH”

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:

The Movie

The First Arc

The Second Arc

Our next episode, we get to know our Origins a bit better…

Quick Edit: Forgot to add a promo at the end, my bad.

AoY Podcast #13 – Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Episode 6 (Gundam Month Pt 3 – Final Week)


UNICRON

Also known as: “When I go to bed, to laugh, to go to sleep, that’s the song I listen too…”
Or could be known as: “Dude, just be a real white dude and own a .45!”

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.

Disclaimer: If anyone is reading this, I am going to be at Nashicon this Saturday in Colombia SC. I will be doing a panel called “What the Damn? Moments in Anime” which starts at 10pm that night. But, I doubt anyone reading this lives in SC, or even going to that con, which might be a good thing. But whatever, just letting you know, because you can expect a podcast review about it sometime.
