This time we bring a short(er) episode as the hosts grow up in a Fooly Cooly sort of way…
(0:00- 40:00) Review: FLCL Progressive/Alternative – Both FLCL series have finished up on Toonami, and Jonn and Dustin dive head first in to the zany, lazy world on the high school life on growing up. This is more of an overview episode of all three series to kinda briefly summarize our thoughts on Progressive and Alternative. This also gets the episode started with how violent Jonn bird is, Dustin and his substitute teaching gig stories, how CNN bans the word “Mob”, the recent revival of old Adult Swim originals and much more.
(40:00 – 1:19:05) Closing Remarks: At some point we get into this segment (probably really after Jonn internet decides to crap out) to mention the grand return of how Love that Goku is going to run an anime/DBZ store, more stories on troubled teens in school, the Brent Kavanaugh Supreme Court hearing, how socialism works in the land of Chris Chan and much more.

There is no excuse as to why we missed the entire month of September to put out a review. Other than the hosts blaming it on “bizarre” circumstances, this time we talk about JoJo Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders.
(0:00 – 1:02:45) Review: JoJo Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders – This particular 3rd arc of the series is what anime fans have known what JoJo’s been for over 20 years at this point, and with its airing run finished up on Toonami, Jonn and Dustin get around to covering the series. This mostly goes into the arc history of marketing in the states, and to capture notable moments in the show. This also includes our own apologetic ad for RightStuf.com, Toonami shows talk, and the craziness thereof.
(1:02:45 – 1:59:00) Closing Remarks – This gets the hosts to talk about the removal of Alex Jones from all known forms of social and mainstream media, which only prompts Dustin to summon his Alex Jones impersonation stand once again. This includes QAnon talk, that Unite the Right movement near Otakon, Gab.ai threat to be taken down, internet censorship talk, Candace Owens/Sarah Jong tweets, Dustin has beef on one of his AMV’s taken down by AVEX on Youtube, and what Smash Bros characters are/aren’t gay. All this and more in this weeks episode.
OP – What a wild ride…

It’s once again time to bust out another RightStuf product review, intermixing with American politics. This time we have Mobile Report Gundam Wing… AGAIN!
(0:00 – 58:20) Review: Mobile Report Gundam Wing (PART DEUX) – It’s been about five years since we last talked about Gundam Wing, so if you account what was said then and now, you’ll get the most in depth Gundam Wing review in the history of ever. This was Dustin re-watch of a series he hasn’t laid eyes on in 18 years, and boy was it ever the trip through time for him. This review is more of the in depth political spectrum review of Gundam Wing, which the politics were never understood by ANYONE who watched this on Toonami 18 years ago. This also includes the acting roles of Campbell Lane, why Wing was popular on Toonami, shout outs to Daily Anime Podcast and the secret episode that NEVER WAS, Dustin reasons for cutting back on liquor, and a whole lot more.
(58:20 – 02:39:34) The “State-Of-The-Union” Closing Remarks – To anyone who heard or saw the American State of the Union address, both Jonn and Dustin give their accounts and rants on what was said, seen, and about American politics in general. This should come to no one surprise to those who ever listened to a single second of this podcast closing remarks, because politics comes up in the discussion all the time. This also includes Ghost TCR commentary, Dustin breaks out his inner Alex Jones once again, the life of Barron Trump, Goof Troop discussion, The Legacy of South Carolina Senator Strom Thurmond, cryptocurrency rants, the 2018 State of the Podcast address, and much more.
This show has:
RIP Campbell Lane…
CNN Reporting at its finest…
Yea, this is totally like Resident Evil… I guess?
Barron Trump is our early post-modern artist of our generation…

Once again, it’s back to back Gundam on this podcast, which might be the last time for a while, where this time Jonn and Dustin cover Gundam the Origin OVA 3: Dawn of Rebellion.
(0:00 – 17:16) Pre-Review Movie Review of Finding Dory – Sometime before the hosts get into Gundam, Finding Dory came out and Dustin talked about a bit of the film with Jonn, which then lead to the real issue of the movie: entitled millennials who think the movie is all about their childhood needs and not for the rest of the kids in the theaters. There is also some other talk about other kids movies that take forever to come out, and the lives of the rich and stupid of the New England States of ‘Merika!
(17:16 – 1:04:58) Review: Gundam the Origin OVA 3 Review – Both hosts sit down and cover the overall OVA in general of what happens, so maybe some spoilers are afoot. In all honesty, both hosts spent most of this time talking about other Gundam stuff, anime on American TV, ideas for Sunrise and Bandai to get off their butts and make a proper 40th Anniversary release of Gundam the Origin for a new audience, the change in political and individualism within Gundam, and much more.
(1:04:58 – 01:24:21) Closing Remarks: With this recording happening sometime at the end of June, both host were scrapping the bottom for closing remarks comments, but managed to scrounge some up. Jonn mentions more Ghost accusations, the conspiracy of what was in Gundam the Origin Mobile Suit Development, ideas for our 100th episode coming up soon, and much more.
SPEAKING OF OUR UPCOMING 100TH EPISODE!!: Ok, so we at the podcast take it as anyone reading this knows how to access this site from the web and gets our episodes from here. If you do, you know the internet better than most people. So here is the deal: Episode 100 is coming up and both hosts want you listeners to send us some suggestions on what to do. Should we read email sent by you? Should we do a review of something? Show off our anime collection on video? Demolition Derby? I dunno, you tell us! So to send us suggestions, email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or you could tweet at us over at @AoYPodcast. It’s that simple to use guys! Depending on how many people submit ideas, Dustin and Jonn will pick the most doable idea and execute it, and there will be recognition for it! So let the podcast know by Episode 99 and we will see what happens!

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.
(1:07:01 – 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 2 – This intro is just so Dandy!
This show has:

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.

Things get spooky for us here at the podcast, as we get to take the express elevator all the way to the Go Nagai level of hell, as we sit down to see the world of the Devilman OVA. This world is filled with punk teen friends who threaten your girlfriend with a knife, punk teen bullies that kill bunnies and kick the bucket, and more punk teens who have heavy metal raves in your dads secret basement for black masses.
After taking the last elevator ride to get out in one piece, I then tell my co-host of a world filled with anime teens playing airsoft in Stella Women’s Academy, High School Division Club C-3. This was this past summer anime season Gainax show, that starts out like any typical lame anime with tropes ranging from filling it with beach episodes, bath scenes and Gainax bounces to your harem/moe hearts content. But then the show cuts that crap out about half way and gets serious about airsoft, probably just as much as people who still play it. Of course, this show has a place in my heart since I was a player of the sport at one point, long ago.
We also get to talk about things like Go Nagai material in general, 4 year olds who watch Devilman, the bad shows on Toonami, how Gundam Boy Friends is going, anime in 2013, why Narnia sucks, and much more in this weeks segment.

Ok, so there is still no Gundam: The Origin podcast episode just yet, but its coming soon ( I guess???). But what me and my co-host Jonn decided to add in more podcast filler with… us discussing Toonami shows. We’ve been keeping up with Toonami since it started last year, which leads us to watch most of what comes on TV at night (mostly through DVR recordings/using the old VCR). The one show that we have been keeping up with from beginning to end was Tenchi Muyo GXP.
Tenchi Muyo GXP is not a great show by any means, but I will go out on a limb to say it was the one show that had both of our attention to watch from beginning to end. I wanted to watch it because I (secretly) wanted to watch Tenchi anything on TV again, because its been over a decade since I’ve had that enjoyment. This also leads to us talking about the Tenchi series in general.
After that, I talk about my first time playing Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon (i.e, Micheal Biehn: The Video Game). This was my first introduction to the Far Cry series, and I gotta say, I was impressed.
But that’s not all! This episode was to originally end with those two things as our main topics, but since One Piece came back on TV for the first time in 5 years, we wanted to give our feedback on that also (especially for me being a first time viewer for the show). We also mention in this episode general anime talk, general Toonami talk, the failed Funimation One Piece livestream marathon, some audio issues, some video game talk, and much more.

Valentine’s Day Single Awareness Day special, we bring on Geoffrey Tebbetts to discuss his contributing blog, Golden Ani. The blog is dedicated to the past 50 years of Japanese Animation, with written reviews by other anime bloggers/big kahunas out there. After a few questions to that, we get to our main topic, our “anime first loves,” where we talk about what anime’s we first fell in love with that really got us into anime. Geoffrey talks about Maison Ikkoku, my co-host Jonn and Josh talk about the glory days of Toonami programming shows that made them anime fans, and I bring up my personal favorite OVA “first love,” Sol Bianca. Oh, and me and Jonn talk about an “en espanol” station, Locomotion.
