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.
Bonus Content: As we stated in the podcast, you can view the Space Dandy Official Fan Book from Zeonic main site by clicking on the highlighted text in this paragraph. Just a heads up.

Billy Madison was totally the original Space Dandy…

We tune our strings and warm up the mics to an anime that was an OVA one hit wonder, To-Y. This was a review “on the fly,” where the fansub of this OVA was sitting in front of me and I wasn’t in the mood to watch this alone. So Jonn and I decided to give this a shot on youtube to see what this was about (without us knowing what to expect).
To-Y is a product of it’s time, or should I say, a time where animators did whatever they felt like doing to an OVA in the Japanese economy boom of 1987. I saw To-Y as a visually fun looking 55 minute music video that told a story of a band and the people around it. Where as Jonn saw it as a giant waste of time 5 minutes into our AIM conversation. Like what prompted my interest to watch this OVA in the first place, was also my discussion about Mike Toole history on his first exposure to this in the latest Colony Drop zine, by mentioning it was on an old programming block called Night Flight (in other words, GO BUY THAT THAN TO LISTEN TO US TALK ABOUT THIS ANIME!)
Depending on how you view this anime to your all knowing otaku/weeboo/fanboy logic, you might side with one of us on what we have to say about it. We also throw in a minor review of Mars of Destruction for good fun (and that “review” is about as much as we are gonna say about “that” anime). And like the usual fashion, we talk about mecha anime we have been watching, old website providers who hosted old anime websites long ago, 6th graders who did Gundam Wing comics, some mic issues and much more.

Mission… Accepted! The Gundam 90’s era isn’t over for us yet, and we have reached the halfway point where we dive into a world of TOTAL PACIFISM!! I’m talking about that Mobile Report Gundam Wing. Gundam Wing seems to be the Gundam show that introduced today’s American anime fans into Gundam (I myself included.) Some of them will die by this series as being the best thing they have ever seen. Well, we happen to say some choice words about this show, and sorta SPOIL it as well (again, from what we can best remember). We also use those choice words on the sequel Endless Waltz, and briefly mention the side manga’s off this show before ending things.
I should note, Andy and Jeff from the Daily Anime Podcast made all the episode screw-ups possible (which made it not a boring podcast episode).
Next time, we will make a brief Turn Around into another Gundam show.

Mike Toole brings quality entertainment for Gundam Wing… (BTW, I DID NOT HAVE A CRUSH ON RELENA, SO I DID SORTA GOOD FOR THE MOST PART!)
