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!
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.
(0:00 – 45:00) A 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!
