AoY Podcast #126 – Outlaws vs. Cowboys: The Bebop Stars of Space


Also known as: “The Beau Billingslea Power Hour on Toonami!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 3:05:30)

We talk about the two biggest titans in the galaxay among anime fans in the early 2000’s, where we review Outlaw Star and Cowboy Bebop!

(0:00 – 45:40) Review: Outlaw Star – This podcast episode is the historic record of the pinnacle of what was important to anime fans on Cartoon Network starting from 2001 and beyond. Outlaw Star was a big anime among the viewers of Toonami, and Dustin heard about this show for years until he finally saw the series shown on Toonami recently for the first time. Both hosts Jonn and Dustin and special guest Daft chime in to talk about the overview of the series with some spoilers thrown in. This also includes how its vital importance that Jonn dad tells Jonn in the call that the dog is eating cheese off the floor, the stupidity of Transformers cartoons, Outlaw Star merch in America, FLCL revival talks, will Hamtaro be on Toonami for Aprils Fools Night? (as of this writing, Adult Swim showed FLCL Alternative subtitled on TV, followed by Mind Game, and a bunch of the regular block airing in the same format, because I’m writing this about 1am on April Fools night – Dustin), Toonami censorship on TV and much more.

(45:40 – 1:39:00) Review: Cowboy Bebop – This episode marks the 20th anniversary since the anime first aired on TV Tokyo, and how it later showed up that late summer on the new Adult Swim block on Cartoon Network in 2001. Both hosts recant how much of an impact Bebop has had on them as anime fans all these years later, including the merch that’s out there (you can find the pdf of the Bebop Anime Guides here at my blog – Dustin). This goes into account what particular episode got Dustin involved in Bebop, our top 3 Bebop episodes, the TV edits, and a whole lot more!

(1:39:00 – 3:05:30) Closing Remarks – This is chock full of material that covers for the month of March since we last recorded, including how Love that Goku got social services on his butt, Linkara leaving TGWTG and the twitter thread full of the company drama, Meson in dire need, the fully funded Kickstarter for Gunsmith Cats, The Toys That Made Us Netflix Documentary series, Dustin con talks on Toylanta and SC Comic Con, RIP Toys R Us/southern food stores/Return of KB Toys, the Mystery of Miami Mike finally solved by The Anime Nostalgia Podcast and the stupid weeaboo drama that follows on the ANN Forums, Dustin mentions his thoughts on Pacific Rim 2, and much more!

AoY Podcast #33 – Violence Jack Review


Also known as: “THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!!… and then he turns into a bird!”
And also: “Jonn, did I just say pot plant?”

This review comes with a purpose when Jonn and I decided to take on this unique title from the great Go Nagai. That purpose in mind was to take a stand on the idea of never backing down or backing out of something that certain reviewers hype up to fans for the past couple of years, only to give their fans a metaphoric “blue balls” in the final product. Because of one such review in question, Jonn and I ventured off once again in the Uncut hell of Violence Jack

Ok, here’s the real”no BS” reason why we decided to cover Violence Jack now: This is a retaliation against one Bennett the Sage/Anime Abandon at ThatAutismWitDemGlasses website, because the dude decided it would be a better use of time to do a 30 minute poor-ass-bad-white-mans-acting-drama video than to actually show any footage or go into any depth of Violence Jack for his so call “review.” So, that gigantic waste of time got me and Jonn fired up to finally sit down and talk about this anime that we have been discussing for over 2 years now (going back to our early Kool Kids Klub Podkast days.) So, its high time we give those people what they really want to hear about old Jack here, the good honest in-depth truth, spoilers, and no BS talk like we do with everything we review.

I’ll be honest, i’m not gonna force anyone to see Violence Jack. That is an anime I will say to watch at your own discretion, where no other human soul is around to view it with you. At least by watching it, you will lose part of our humanity, it just happens. Of course on that note, we mention a bit more on our dislike to the reviewers of TGWTG people, if Jack is somehow related to Wolverine, other people who hate Bennett the Sage, the fans of Bennett, people who make mistakes, birth rates in other countries, Go Nagai anime in general, how AVGN is a cool dude, how you should have gotten Golgo 13 from the RightStuf sale, I say Do Svidaniya to Mikhal Kalashnikov and much more.
