(0:00 – 1:05:08) Review: Power Rangers – Dustin and Jonn and guests Cloud and Daft join together to dawn our power suits and get ready to take on this movie full force with our MegaZords all in the name of friendship! Well, not really, but it did warrant a good discussion (specially when Daft showed up 30 minutes later). Power Rangers was a film Daft hated to love, and Dustin saw it as a movie he loved to hate. There are spoilers afoot in breaking down scenes that were just stupid to begin with, as well as how twitter won’t shut up about it being this pro-ELGEBETE diverse
crap fest. This warrants other Haim Saban discussions and other stuff, including Dustin trying to get away from a devoted fan rambling off his Power Rangers love to him at a Hot Topic.
(1:05:08 – 1:06:18) Promo: Just slipping in a quick Anime Cart and RightStuf! promo for you guys to drop all your dough on their websites. (Happening RIGHT NOW, you can get a FREE Naruto Headband with any purchase from animecart.com. Even though in a previous episode I stated about dumb teens going there to get headbands, I just got one, because its FREE! so that makes me feel a little better about getting one to act like a “highly functioning autistic ‘narutard'”, and you should too. Use our discount, it does work! – Dustin)
(1:06:18 – 1:55:15) Review: Ghost in the Shell – Just as Daft was more forgiving of Power Rangers, Dustin was even more so with Ghost in the Shell, despite the twitter anti-whitewashing hate machine taking credit that they movie failed. Its been over a year since we talked about Ghost in the Shell, and if you want our 1995 review of that, it can be found in this giant link in this text. Although not a perfect film, Dustin explains his reason why this film shouldn’t have gotten the specific negative attention it got when they’re other factors wrong with the movie, but it was mostly complaining about the haters of this film online. It’s more got to Dustin trying to defend the film for the things it did right, which was more than what the internet was going to give it credit for. Also, mics are being thrown down in anger, just saying. Dustin also wrote an article for The Odyssey about this film, so give that a read.
(1:55:15 – 2:18:35) Closing Remarks: There is still more discussion on haters and the internet, as well Cloud talking a little about Anime Boston, Dustin hating that UNC won the NCAA tourney, Ghost from TCR going sober, The People v. Jontron, are pets racists?, and finding your brothers anime items in storage to claim as your own. All this and much more in this weeks episode. Also fair warning, Dustin mic is super loud for some reason, but that will be fixed next episode.

What better way for our podcast to celebrate the America’s 240th Fourth of July with a little bit of magic, where this time we review Magic Users Club.
(0:00 – 40:15) Review: Magic Users Club OVA – This is gonna be one of those corporate mandated anime reviews by our “Shogunate of Anime” content provider, RightStuf! This time we got a 6 episode 90’s OVA about basically if your schools Harry Potter club was sticking it to your schools anime club, with a love triangle added into the mix. Both host Jonn and Dustin give this show a fair pass, and they’ll get around to the TV series eventually to review.
(40:15 – 1:31:05) Closing Remarks – As per usual, both host talk about issues that came up in the month of May when this was recorded, which means they don’t have much of an impression over a month later, but oh well. We bring up James Rolfe viewpoints on the new Ghostbusters film and the SJW retaliation against that. We also discuss how Chris Chan wants a job at Sega on his terms, how internet piracy has changed over the past decade, our opinions on how to support the anime industry, Dustin love for Pure Pwnage, the need for comments on our site, Rotten Tomatoes is a rotten review site, and much more.

It has been a long while since the Holy AoY Podcast Trinity were able to come together and review a movie and a show in one episode (actually this might be THE ONLY TIME EVER!) We are once united with our overly quiet podcast co-host Josh, as we get to discuss the most recent Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie being released online, and give our feedback on the moral misgivings of dumbass internet forum debates about Black Lagoon.
(0:00 – 49:27) – A Non-Anime Movie Review: The Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie: The trinity was needed to discuss the lifetime project of James Rolfe and his angry endeavors of reviewing old video games on the internet, which then lead him to achieve the ultimate goal of turning all that hard work into a movie, which is a lot of hard work. So, like everyone else on the internet, we wanted to give our say on his hard work over the past few years. Of course before we get into any of that, we decide to rant about water issues in the West, the deep rooted forum stupidity behind Toonzone.net (aka, Zeonic becoming a Class A Cyber Criminal one lame post at a time), which then leads us to talking about the film. We decided to approach the film with us talking about the parts we liked (aka some Spoilers you know), and really reviewing the character of The Nerd and his evolution throughout the years on the internet. We also discuss how we first got into The Nerd, which in turn gets us into our roots a little on how we got to know each other online. Dare I say a podcast origins episode might turn up one day? Well, you’ll just have to wait and see about that.
(49:27 – 52:30) Podcast Promos: With Alpha Counter making the funding goal on their Indiegogo page, we figure we owe it to them to play a promo for them. Dave and Joel seem to be releasing more episodes recently than they have in the past few months; because with JoJo’s and Destiny out in force, they are there too get on that beat. Speaking of releases, The Daily Anime Podcast decided to recently release their review of the To Terra movie, which was just Jeff talking about the film for 20 odd minutes, since I know he read the manga for a while.
(52:30 – 1:45:34) The Toonzone Debacle: Black Lagoon Review: Due to the dismay of one particular internet forums opinions (keep reading past the post on the link if you dare), we unite the trinity once more to discuss the recent end of the airing of Black Lagoon on Toonami. Our opinions are mixed on this show, as Zeonic believes that it might be the greatest show to air on Toonami in its entire history, and believes anyone who opposes that idea is a “pansy female reproductive organ.”Jonn on the other hand is not all in alignment to Zeonic Toonami prophetic enlightened views, and Josh just cares about how many BEEPS the show got on TV. We decide to not spoil too much on the show itself; and use the flames of war, cast by a Toonzone Mod unbeliever, to discuss the human, psychological and moral viewpoints of the world in Black Lagoon. Maybe we are giving this show too much credit, but then again, maybe not enough (only because deep down, Zeonic believes Black Lagoon is the best modern day anime equivalent to a 1990’s Manga UK dub.) Care to weigh in your opinion listeners? This also ends with us discussing Zeonic panel plans for BanzaiCon, how we successfully trolled ToonRadio, and much more.
Convention Note: If anyone is going to BanzaiCon in a couple of weeks, you have a chance to see Zeonic continue to spew his anime nerd knowledge upon the masses of Naruto headband wearing, Hetalia flag waving, Titan slaying anime nerds that will be present. On Saturday from 6 to 7pm, Zeonic will show his Robot Anime Openings of the 1980’s; which will showcase openings to mecha anime, and even some that made it to the states. Then on Saturday from Midnight to 2am is the cream de la cream to what all panels want to aspire to be, and that is the “WHAT THE HECK?” MOMENTS IN ANIME: THREE TIMES THE MISCHARMED!! It is essentially the closest thing BanzaiCon has to an Anime Hell at this point, and people must know THE TRUTH behind what anime is really about.
This show has:
“The graphics are so good, you’ll commit SEGACIDE!!”
Chinglish is totally Zeonic new waifu…
What 20 years of a fallen government and war can do to a person…
Now, just imagine everything you heard, were beeps. And that’s this show guys…

Man, when was the last time we had an episode under and hour? Well, Good Friday was well over a week ago, and so was the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ (for those who don’t celebrate that pagan bunny and chocolate egg corporate holiday.) We decided to give what we can back to the christian community on this glorious (and very late) day; by simply talking about how Christianity “really” wen’t down in feudal Japan in the most extremely (in)accurate documentary called Ninja Resurrection.
Ninja Resurrection tells the tale of how God’s chosen Japanese people rose against the Tokugawa Shogunate, by having dragons from the divine lord be summoned upon the unbelievers, having daddy issues, taking on anime Gary Busey, the crying blood Virgin Mary, and a lot of SATAN! Of course, we go off topic on subjects like convention talk, general talk on anime series that are coming out in Japan and American TV, how Christianity is portrayed in anime and around Japan, movies around the bible that are out now and a whole lot more.

This is something you CAN show to your local church… if they got nothing against anime that is…

Yea… this anime has Satan/Ghost sex in it….
