AoY Podcast #16 – The Toonami Filler Podcast (with Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon)


Tenchi_Muyo_GXP

Also known as: “Who the hell would make an emulator outta that?”
or could be: “Zee Eye Gee, Zee… Slash ON!”

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.

AoY Podcast #6 – Golden-Ani First Loves (aka Valentine’s Day Special w/ Geoff Tebbetts)


AOY Valentines day

Also known as: “Do you believe in ani-love?”

For our 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.
