Hey, remember when we used to do anime reviews? Yea, the gang vaguely remembers doing them also. But hey, were back on the anime beat, and this time we start to cover those Indiegogo perks we promised at the early part of the year. This time we got a request from Sean Ryan from the Alpha Counter podcast to issue us the most rockin anime out there, The Legend of Black Heaven.
Again, we don’t need no time codes for this episode, since it was Zeonic and Sean sitting in the middle of a back ally hallway of the Marriott late Saturday night during Animazement. This is also where frequent con goers and hotel staff kept coming by us during the recording, which was near the most desired restroom in the entire hotel mind you, so you’ll hear zingers of that at the end of the episode. The Legend of Black Heaven is an anime Zeonic has always heard good things about over the years, and finally had the chance to watch and thoroughly enjoy this OVA. Even though Black Heaven is more relatable to people reaching their Logan’s Run age expiration date and beyond, anyone can pick up this title and enjoy it, wither you are musically inclined or not. This would also be this podcast second review of anime based off music, since our first one was about To-Y 2 years ago. Of course, you can expect some “sidebar” discussions about anime Terry Crews, talking about music in general, how american football is really “handegg,” Masters of the Universe movie synopsis, and Zeonic gets the hiccups. All this and much more in this this weeks episode…
This show has:
Dunno why Zeonic first thought of anime Terry Crews was in Friday After Next, but that is how his pimp mind works sometimes…
And you wonder why the Japanese have a hard time understanding Americans…
In general, AMV’s are the worst way to promote a show to make someone think it’s going to be great. However, this AMV is an exception, just go see Black Heaven already.
Per request by Sean Ryan…

So we got some leftovers I have been saving for quite a while now, and it’s time I shared the stench with you guys. But sometimes, old things don’t smell so bad, or not all of it at least. We got two reviews way past their expiration date, Dark Solder D and Pacific Rim (or what I wanna call “PacRim”!!)
My Dark Solder D review was originally recorded back in December 2012 (I believe), and was submitted for the last part of Regan’s Anime 82 Mecha Madness podcast to see if he would take this live action mecha atrocity to heart. Well, he gave a brief “NO MAN, NOT GONNA HAPPEN!” on that episode, so the recording (and this post i’m writing on) just sat in the vault till it was needed. But now, that time has come.
If I told you that Dark Soldier D wasn’t offensive to the senses in some way, I would commit one of the worst crimes against humanity. With shooting giant chickens in the ass with an M60 machine gun, brains floating in jars that have speech devices, mad Russians, hooking up with a girl that steals your crap, limbs a flying and much more, you can bet your in for the 3 episode ride of your life.
We then move on to the greatest anime-to-live-action adaptation that wasn’t off an anime, which makes PacRim the best anime of 2013! Both Daft and I were on this recording back when the movie came out in theaters as we each give our own personal views on the movie (and before we got 1 star rating that I found out later that came from Daft on iTunes for some dumbass hipster reason.) Pacific Rim will release your inner child for an hour and a half, with a sense that you have a plastic robot in your hand as you watch the coolest fights break out on the big screen. With the movie out on DVD/BluRay, you should have already bought the thing by now, or you will for Christmas. Either way, get it!
This also gets us to talk about Comic book movie talk, me discussing the Wolverine movie (SPOILERS), toy talk, anime to live action talk, how PacRim is not Evangelion, “Bay”Formers talk, the marketing reasons behind 3D movies now, and much more.

For this episode, we review… absolutely nothing. We decided to take this time and discuss a few things that were on our minds, and to also trash talk those we “kindly” disagree with.
Our main discussions are about two internet/Twitter peoples opinions on the anime industry, dubs vs subs, and programming opinions that we personally disagree with to the highest extent of the natural order. We also bring up how you should not treat delinquents who commit a crime, why Dragonball Evolution, Live Action Johnny Bravo and Avatar movies are terrible (but i make a mention of a pretty good movie, Riddick) and a slew of Skype audio issues (all thanks to Jonn’s
crappy NEW modem Ex-crappy modem).
We do bring up how College life is going for us, we talk about Patlabor for a bit, and end things off with what we are keeping up with on Toonami. All this and more in this weeks segment.
