After having this DVD set collect dust in our pile-O-shame’s for over a year, Jonn and Dustin finally get around to talking about Super Gals.

Super Shibuya Anime Culture Review: Super Gals – If you want to test the standards of any 2000’s anime comedy series can still hold up in today’s anime fandom, just leave it up to podcast reviewers to see how far they can stand a show before calling it quits. This is more of a review of the first two episodes of Super Gals than it is a whole series of Super Gals. Let’s not kid ourselves, these two episodes gave both hosts everything they needed to know about this anime. Super Gals is a parody of 1990’s Japanese fashion culture that lies somewhere between Kogal girls, Ganguro girls and fighting for justice because you’re daddy is a police chief. This also gets into talking about how Jonn has too much Hamtaro on his hard drive, defending Gundam 0083, if Super Gals can be used for CIA torture on terrorism, music history of Para Para, past ADV properties and much more.
(45:00 – 1:33:12) Closing Remarks: This is the hosts talking about the latest Chris Chan stuff and his supposed girlfriend/being on the NEWS AGAIN, Trump vs. NFL vs. First Amendment rights, how Toys R Us filed Chapter 11 (better article on that found from the angriest otaku out there), old and terrible podcasts, Cowboy Bebop vs. Outlaw Star, shootings in Tennessee, and Dustin trying to chime in while having the hiccups. Also this and more in this episode!
OP – Shibuya ROLL CALL!!!
ED – And well just Para dance our way out of this review…

AoY Podcast #95 – Gundam Evolve Review

Because of RightStuf! efforts in putting out more Gundam, our podcast has gone through an evolutionary change with our review of Gundam Evolve.
(0:00 – 1:05:25) Review: Gundam Evolve – Our podcast has now evolved into the next stage in human nerdvolution. Gundam Evolve is 15 short films involving short side stories and what-was-then cool looking CGI 3D model effects from the early 2000’s. If you happen to be a big Gundam nerd, then this is up your ally to add to your collection. As per usual on the podcast, the review usually starts about 10 minutes after the recordings started, where Jonn and Dustin talk about the DVD cover of Super Gals! This only gives more ammunition to Dustin 1990’s memory of the only show on Nickalodeon that mattered, while both hosts go off the review grid a bit to mention the fall (and rise again) of Tokyopop, the stories behind Shin Matsunaga and Johnny Ridden, Dustin repressed 90’s pop music memories, Gundam sunglasses and much more. For a review of animated shorts after the 1990’s, this episode feels more like a 1990’s nostalgia trip than anything else.
(1:05:25 – 1:26:07) Closing Remarks – This time closing remarks are pretty short, where we mention our thoughts on the impact the Orlando Shooting had, American politics, Toon Radio stupidity, and more.
OP – Gundam is an Evolution not to be reckoned with…
ED – Oops, I guess I remembered the 90’s again…
