It is once again the start of Con season for the podcast, as Zeonic takes his yearly leave for this years Nashicon. Of course this episode will mark a historic landmark, as a live person enters the podcast “studio” (a.k.a., Zeonic room) to do a live recording with us. Let’s just say, we will do better next time. So, join us and our special live guest Vincent Baker from Otherworlds as we do our convention review and anime review of Psychic Wars.
(0:00 – 27:44) Convention Review – Nashicon 2015: This might be the first time ever that a con report is less than 30 minutes long, only because there wasn’t too much to gripe about. Both Zeonic and Vincent felt that the con stepped their game up in terms of getting good guest like returning champion Spike Spencer and newcomer Kyle Hebert to stop by Colombia S.C. What sweetened the pot even more was that Windjammers was available, so of course Zeonic got his fill of FLYING POWER DISK-U. We also mentioned the issues with how certain panels were ran this year, our guest Vincent discussing his upcoming game, switching out to another mic in the studio (which… wasn’t a good idea), and Vincent discussing Triad Anime Con as being a featured guest there.
(27:44 – 43:51) Interview – Vincent Baker: So this interview was conducted behind the registration booth at the con since Zeonic saw it as the least chaotic area in the convention to talk to Vincent. Vincent was able to sit down and answer some questions and go into details about the Otherworlds game, which the Kickstarter to that will be updated on this post when it gets released on May 1st. So if your interested in the game, please give him all your money (or what you realistically want to give).
UPDATE! (May 2nd): Here is the link for the Otherworlds Kickstarter, so if you want to contribute, just click here to go to the Kickstarter page!!
(43:51 – 46:04) Podcast Promo’s: Our last promo was from February, so it’s high time we do another one. Alpha Counter has been keeping current with their once a week schedule for shows, which this latest episode is about upcoming films this summer. Anime World Order recently put out an episode reviewing The Anime Encyclopedia 3rd Edition, which even our latest promo aired on their episode, so thank you AWO gang! In other big news, the Daily Anime Podcast has released some more episodes, with Parasyte The Maximum and more Legend of Galactic Heroes talk.
(46:04 – 1:16:53) Review: Psychic Wars OVA: This was an anime that Jonn mentioned in our Crystal Triangle episode, which prompted Zeonic to watch it at 1 a.m. the night before. Regardless of this anime’s flaws, it is able to tackle one issue in question that is a worldwide cause of concern, and that is how to properly cure cancer. Of course this gets us off topic to talk about how to play the Shemue games, closing remarks on Chris(tine) Chan status update, proper tooth care, and briefly mentioning Chris Chan to Vincent, which he doesn’t need to honestly know. All this and more in this weeks episode.
OP – It’s bout time we jam up this con once more…
OP2 – Time to dawn on our Jesus powers to punch cancer…
ED – After seeing this anime, we are now true veterans of The Psychic Wars…
This show has:
This anime…. at its purest form…
