It is the day after the resurrection of the son of God for people of the Christian faith. We celebrate this time by either going to a church for the first time since Christmas, getting the day off of school or work for Good Friday, and maybe getting some bible reading thrown in for good measure. However, Zeonic and Jonn decided to keep up with tradition (starting from last year) to watch an anime with Christianity being highly misinterpreted. We look no further than the masterpiece OVA, Crystal Triangle.
(0:00 – 15:10) PreReview Discussion: This is just a way for Jonn and Zeonic to ramble on about things to empty ones mind for the Crystal Triangle holy message to be bestowed upon them. This includes Zeonic ramblings about his computer issues, while Jonn brings up the Social Justice issues about whats going down in Indiana. To be honest, it’s the hosts way of saying “Man, do we ‘really’ have to review Crystal Triangle? Ugh… let’s get this over with…”
(15:10 – 55:12) Review: Crystal Triangle OVA: It’s been a good while since we talked about older anime, so it’s high time we got back into the swing of things. Crystal Triangle seems to be “that” anime that people know about too be “that” anime. Zeonic see’s it as his 2nd worst anime of all time, while Jonn ranks it below his Pilot Candidate “low-end-yard-stick-of-crap.” It’s amazing that at one point, this anime sold on laserdisc for 120 bucks, which in today’s anime world, would anyone in their right mind spend that much for it (other than Mike Toole perhaps?). Perhaps it’s the “engrish” and “lussian” dialect in this anime that’s confused the TRUTH of God’s Message to be fully interpreted for us, which is why we couldn’t take this movie too seriously. We also mention the TRUTHful location of where the bible might be held, forums that don’t like Evangelion, Urashiman on The Anime Network, and Samurai Pizza Cats talk.
(55:12 – 1:19:39) Closing Remarks: This is the part where we look towards our “Podcast Pillars of the Holy Trinity” for spiritual guidance, where we mention the updated accounts of two of those pillars which are Chris Chan and Love_That_Goku. After knowing that Love_That_Goku feeds LARPers dirt, Jonn gives an internet account of what happened at Chris Chan recent trial, which means he’s gonna roam free for a little while longer, and how he might tie up his Gal Pals from high school. Zeonic mentions his accurate predictions off episode one of Sword Art Online 2 to be THE TRUTH, and mention about a guy who will be on a future podcast soon. All this and more in this weeks episode, see yea next time… (aka, stay tuned for the zinger at the end…)

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…
