After about 5 months of not putting out any con coverages, Dustin thought we can just double up and OD our listeners with two major cons in one episode with Animazement and Anime Weekend Atlanta.

(0:00 – 2:16:45) Animazement 2017 Review – Do people other than this podcast talk about cons 5 months after they happen? Well who knows, but it’s coming out now finally! Of course, this doesn’t go into Animazement immediately, not when Jonn had something to say about not going to see the failed assassination of Jason David Frank at Phoenix Comic Con. Jonn also talks about the dumb weapons policies to “protect” attendees that are not JDF and Robotech. It’s still about roughly 30 or so minutes in that Dustin talks about his con experience at Animazement. Included in this review is stories of the inside world of Limited Run Games, seeing your old teenhood house for the first time in years, how Strafe is inferior to Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, nerds who fail at hitting on girls, Justin Roland stories, people who bring their cats to cons, Antifa v. Street Preachers, not seeing this years Anime Hell, the History of Animazement, meeting forum members IRL, closing remarks of Timbox/Chris Chan and much more.

(2:16:45 – 4:49:07) AWA 2017 Review – Here’s a con that happened within a month that we can get a decent review out in time. This was Dustin first time going to AWA, and based on his 2 day experience, it’s a con worth going back too. This of course comes with meeting anime fan legends like Dave Merrill, Daryl Surat, Walter Amos, Neil Nadelman, and meeting new fans while there as well. This is also another instance where rooming with another forum member makes the con a better experience, and even doing a podcast drunk with them is also fun. Included is how Hell is done at AWA, old school anime dubs, buying up anime vinyl records and playing them on this recording, and more. Closing Remarks are about how the podcast is trying to monitize, the Las Vegas shooting/gun control laws discussion (there’s a part I meant to say was an amendment but said constitution by mistake. So if you caught that, my bad), Chris Chan relationship ends (before it ever got started), Jonn squeaky chair chimes in, Final Fantasy games, Dustin owning an SNES Classic and much more!

AoY Podcast #94 – Comic Book Movies Dump (X-Men, Deadpool, TMNT Review)


xmenapocalypseimax-1

Also known as: “Sugoi, Jackson-san butto!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 3:12:43)

There was a massive influx of comic book movies in the past few months, and we have decided to just cover them in one fell swoop. So this is gonna be our backlog of comic book films podcast! This week we bring back former guest Josh on the show with Dustin and Jonn.

(0:00 – 1:35:50) X-Men Apocalypse Review – We kick off the movie podcast block with Jonn and Dustin mentioning that X-Men might be the best (and probably the only best) comic book movie this year. Other than both hosts giving their thoughts on the film, they both diverge into off topic ramblings like the video game, comic book and anime dvd collectors markets along with some other stuff. This gets into part 1 of our closing remark territory where we mention Jonn trip to Phoenix Comic Con, one of our listeners confronting Bennett the Sage at FanimeCon, all around trash talking TGWTG, and how to be smooth with the feminists on twitter (i.e., you never win those arguments).

(1:35:50 – 3:12:43) Jonn and Josh Movie Review – Once Dustin takes off, Jonn and Josh talk about Deadpool, TMNT Out of the Shadows, and Josh thoughts on Captain America: Civil War. Part 2 for closing remarks is basically how Jonn tells Josh bullcrap litigation deals from the “investors” of Toon Radio, Ghost and True Captitalist Radio ramblings, lolcows of the internet, and much more.

Music Selection:

OP1 – Here come the heroes, to save the world from destruction…

OP2 – We gotta mention that X is gonna give it to yea…

AoY Podcast #17 – The Hangover Cast 2013 (Animazement & Phoenix Comic Con Talkback)


HANGOVER CAST copy

Also known as: “Hey, you guys need to take that to the bathroom!”
Or could be known as: “DUDE, WHERE’S MY CAR?!?!”

Memorial Day weekend is a time to remember the brave men and women in our military armed forces who fight for our country, so that we can enjoy this nation’s liberties to heart. That same liberty applies to anime fans and fellow nerds alike in America also, because Memorial Day is also a nation wide convention weekend. With so many cons happening at the same time, my co-host Jonn and I decided to take in the sights of near local conventions that were a drive away. Jonn went to the Phoenix Comic Con, and I took the journey to Animazement.

Animazement for me has, and always will be, an adventurous weekend in it of itself. The con every year let’s me experience and see things that I probably normally should and should not see on a daily basis. My adventures include meeting people, catching up with fellow podcasters, seeing the sights, bailing my ride out of the impound lot, getting into virtual fights, giving a little review on Urusei Yatsura: Only You and a hell of a lot more. You could say it’s like its own The Hangover movie… minus most of the crazy stuff that happens, to that extreme of a level. Jonn also tells his tale of running into bootleg anime vendors and a neglected VA guest. So, let me tell of the days of high adventure…

Here is the Animazement photo’s I took while at the con!!
