Well, we’re in the year of the flying hoverboards, The 3rd Impact and probably other great futuristic movie predictions that escape Zeonic at the moment. However, our anniversary special is gonna be belated for a while, so sorry to tell you guys that. However, we don’t expect it to be as belated as this episode content, which has been collecting dust in our podcast vault for roughly the past 6 MONTHS!! So without further ado, you get to hear a full house of us talk about the 2014 Summer Anime Season!!!
(0:00 – 13:04) Pre-Introduction Segment: Zeonic did his best to edit this episode into a functional experience, but he could only put in so much work before cutting his losses and just rolling with it. Our full house includes the likes of Chibi Goku, Daft and Josh discussing subjects like the Astro Boy theater production, Zeonic talking about the Insufficient Direction anime/manga, our pre-thoughts on Gundam G Recongista, skype issues, the failed Harmony Gold kickstarter and more before we actually get to FINALLY introducing ourselves 13 minutes later.
(13:04 – 1:22:16) Summer 2014 Anime Review Part A: We split our segments up into two parts, which Part A will consist of our first impressions with Sailor Moon Crystal, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, Sword Art Online 2 and Space Dandy Season 2. We also dive into works by Kevin Smith, MyAnimeList issues, hating on twitter people, and TOTALLY FAILING at doing podcast introductions, which explains why we never do them to begin with.
(1:22:16 – 1:24:34) Podcast Promo’s: Speaking of Jojo’s, we got the two men who’s karate is faster then anything you will ever see, because Dave and Joel have found their own way to hone and master such an art of martials. We give shout outs to Alpha Counter, as they continue to make episodes that no longer pertain to that #GamerGate fiasco. Also included is Anime World Order, who recently did a trivia episode to stump Paul “White Daryl” Chapman’s with useless anime trivia to make regular Daryl Surat be an even bigger
jerkoff anime fan.
(1:24:34 – 2:27:42) Summer 2014 Anime Review Part B: This is essentially a Daft/Jonn segment of them talking about all the time wasted watching anime shows they thought were terrible, which included Terror in Resonance, Aldnoah Zero, Tokyo Ghoul, Akame ga Kill, Bakumatsu Rock and Rail Wars! This of course contains off topic commentary about the DashCon/bad MLP cons, Twitter feminist vs. Zeonic, the current state of anime cons, and much more.
(2:27:42 – 2:47:01) Bonus Content!!: This was content that would have made our off-topic talks even more off-topic, with pre-pre-review discussions about the GREATEST SKYPE CRASH OF THEM ALL!, Anime Expo/Jojo’s dub talk, Toonzone rants, past podcast drama, Marvel anime shows, and more.
OP – Get ready to enter the RERO ZOOOOOOONE!!!!
ED – JUMP IN DAT PITZ
This show has:
The kinda people Rail Wars! is the demographic for?
JUMP IN DA PIT!!!
How that fits in 140 characters is beyond Zeonic’s understanding…
AoY Podcast #53 – Space Dandy Season 2 Review
Also known as: “It sounds like the poster fell, followed by like, all the wall and the drywall that came with it…”

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.
OP – Bring on dat funk, the Dandy Way!!!
ED – Get past your lonely nights, the Dandy Way!!!
This show has:
Billy Madison was totally the original Space Dandy…
AoY Podcast #46 – The Universal Space Dandy Studios, Baby! (Universal Studios/Space Dandy Review)
Also known as: “…and then you get to hear… BLOOOOOOOOONDEEEEEEEEEEEEEY”
Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 2:09:12)
Now that summer is upon us, Zeonic has quite the backlog of episodes he is currently going through between finishing school and going places. This recording was done about 3 months ago with our Megazone 23 reviews, and we now finally have the time to get it out there. Zeonic and his family were able to check out Universal Studios in Orlando FL. (aka the home turf of some big name podcast out there) during his spring break back in March, and the gang had time to discuss Space Dandy season one, which has already ended months ago with season two just now starting on Toonami.
(0:00 – 1:05:21) The Universal Studios Spring Break Trip (aka freaking Florida): After not stepping foot into the least favorite state known to exist, Zeonic is able to tread back to a tourist attraction that he hasn’t seen in almost a decade up to this point in time. Zeonic could say that nostalgia played a role in his enjoyment of revisiting the park, but also the current status of his age got the better of him just as well. Trying out the attractions of young and old between Shrek 3D, Transformers the Ride, Springfield, Harry Potter, Terminator 2 3D and Twister; some feel like they can hold up on their own, and some need to fade away, while others are just a sick joke to be in. Also, being able to have a childhood dream fulfilled, Zeonic was able to grant closure to the inner 8 year old inside him 20 years later; aka Jurassic Park. This was also full of what counts as a racist comment, people who are too old to act like horny 16 year olds, how 4 letters define a generation, Jurassic Park movie discussion, getting sick off Flor-Mex food and much more.
(1:05:21 – 1:07:01) Podcast Promo’s: This time we get more publicity for Alpha Counter, and Dave and Joel from Fast Karate tell it to you straight behind the secrets of Masamune Shirow.
(1:07:01 – 2:09:12) Review – Space Dandy Season 1: With Season 2 Episode 2 of Space Dandy just airing this past week by the time this episode comes out, we were able to reflect our thoughts and discuss the episodes of Space Dandy. Space Dandy is a show that when anime is done right, it’s done like Space Dandy… Baby! If you care to see what Ben Ettinger from Ani-Pages has to say about Space Dandy, and its core component of the shows animation, then check that out. This also gets us talking about the dark days of Toonami’s block, a deep discussion about Rurouni Kenshin (well more like a mini review kinda), what the ani-twitters/ani-tumblrs have to complain about Space Dandy, and much more.
OP 1 – Get ready, for the ride of your life…
ED 1 – The sound of my employment hell…
OP 2 – This intro is just so Dandy!
ED 2 – Get into this dandy groove ya’ll…
This show has:
Yea, my Saturday night was about like that you could say (NSFW for the quezzy)
Yea… that sums up Space Dandy pretty much…
AoY Podcast #35 – Valentines Day Special 2014 (Comments/Toonami Talk)
Also known as: “I AM A BEATER!!!”
or also: “So, is Japan the Alabama of Asia or something?”
Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 2:25:44)
Today is “Single Awareness Day” (or what the non-nerds call it “Valentines Day“), and to some of you listening to our podcast, are probably yet again as single as one could never hope. But fret not listener, because here at the Anime of Yesteryear Podcast, we are ones too never leave a man (or woman) all alone. We decide to take this opportune day to give back to you listeners out there, by reading off (mostly) the comments we have received over the past year.
Time codes (yea, I decided to do this to make following us a bit easier):
0:00-7:02: It’s pretty much us getting set up and dicking around (as usual) with talking about people who lost their plumbing in their house, demonic dryers in the background and probably other dumb things
7:02-1:20:00: We go ahead and read off our comments covering from our Aliens: Colonial Marines review from last year to our most recent anime collecting episode. We go off on tangents like movies that are kinda long to watch, how Zeonic is terrible with podcast funds and spends those on himself (i.e. EBAY WHY YOU GOTTA USE PAYPAL ALL THE TIME?), and a whole lot more I didn’t write down on my notes when I went to edit this episode. Oh yea, Cody is our number one fan on this podcast, because we mostly read off his comments, because he mostly comments.
1:20:00-1:49:15: Jonn and Zeonic get to blow off mass amount of steam and laugh our butts off at how wonderfully terrible Sword Art Online has become since we last talked about it in October or so. We can assume that it has to be one of Toonami’s best comedy shows on the block, because I have never laughed so hard talking about an anime in a really long time. Oh yea, Archer Vice is where its at.
1:49:15-2:25:44: We then get to talk about the other shows on Toonami, like how One Piece is getting REEEEALLY good in the Water 7 arc, Josh and Jonn discuss the other shows on the block and how they are doing, Clint Eastwood is cool with JoJo’s, and we discuss our thoughts on how great a show like Space Dandy is coming together. We then end it off with closing remarks of people on twitter who don’t want to sell sushi, how Chris Chan’s coffee maker started the fire, Josh won a Toonami T-shirt, and weeaboo’s in school. Of course, all this and more.
OP- Is this considered the underlining theme song to Sword Art Online?
ED- This proves that we are jerks to others
This show has:
JR, I THINK HES GONNA JUMP FROM THE STATUE!!!
This is a tribute…. to the greatest song in the world…
A product of AnimEigo dubs in the 90’s…
