Halloween is celebrated differently by people every year. So what better way for the podcast hosts to have their own different Halloween experiences than to travel to different conventions across America. This time we have Dustin spending a few hours at Banzaicon, and Jonn spending the day at Comikaze.

(0:00 – 48:49) Con-O-Ween Part 1: Comikaze at Los Angeles, California – Jonn and his dad trekked from Arizona to the golden state to hit up Comikaze. Jonn talked about getting exhibitor passes from a local comic book shop, SJW tumblr hate speech, how Stan Lee promotes himself at his own con, the differences between comic vs. anime conventions, comic book vs. video game collecting, Jojo’s talk, partied out Ninja Turtles, the wrong directors for live action anime adaptations, anime to live action talk (mostly about Akira), Demon City Shinjuku, Harmony Gold hate, and much more.

(48:49 – 51:06) Podcast Promo’s – We want to give a personal shout out to Alpha Counter, as their latest episode #150 might be their final podcast episode. But in tribute to this, Dustin brought back an old friend to wish them a proper farewell. Fast Karate should be back eventually with new stuff, but not after streaming twitch things. Anime World Order decides that their next episode is to cover Initial D (“BUT WAIT DARYL, YOU TOLD ME YEARS AGO IN A PAST EPISODE COMMENTS THAT NO ONE ON THE AWO CREW WOULD EVER REVIEW INITIAL D BECAUSE YOU GUYS ALL HATED IT!! OH WAIT, SOMEONE PAID YOU TO REVIEW IT? NOW I SEE WHAT IT REALLY TAKES TO COVER SHUICHI SHIGENO GRAND MANGA MASTERPIECE CGI ANIMOO SERIES!!” – Inner 18 year old “die hard Initial D fanboy attitude” Dustin responding out of spite).

(51:06 – 1:36:50) Con-O-Ween Part 2: Banzaicon at Colombia, South Carolina – Across the great America’s, Dustin was taking his sweet time to get to Banzaicon, which resulted in describing what a convention looks like past 7:30 pm on a Saturday Halloween night. This of course contains how to sucker  convince the con staff to let you and your “panelist” partner in for cheap, playing some well deserved Initial D, guests at the con that Dustin never saw, 1990’s USA Network cartoons, Ani-Monday talk, how to give a yaoi panel some late night competition, and much more.

(1:36:50 – 2:05:27) Closing Remarks – This just continues into Chris Chan PSA on Halloween trans talk, Dustin explains his experience with audibly reading the Lensmen series, Dustin jacks Golgo 13 M-16, book to movie adaptations, and much more.

AoY Podcast # 23 – To-Y Review


230px-Toymanga

Also known as: “Don’t mess around with the guy in the shades in To-Y!”

We tune our strings and warm up the mics to an anime that was an OVA one hit wonder, To-Y. This was a review “on the fly,” where the fansub of this OVA was sitting in front of me and I wasn’t in the mood to watch this alone. So Jonn and I decided to give this a shot on youtube to see what this was about (without us knowing what to expect).

To-Y is a product of it’s time, or should I say, a time where animators did whatever they felt like doing to an OVA in the Japanese economy boom of 1987. I saw To-Y as a visually fun looking  55 minute music video that told a story of a band and the people around it. Where as Jonn saw it as a giant waste of time 5 minutes into our AIM conversation. Like what prompted my interest to watch this OVA in the first place, was also my discussion about Mike Toole history on his first exposure to this in the latest Colony Drop zine, by mentioning it was on an old programming block called Night Flight (in other words, GO BUY THAT THAN TO LISTEN TO US TALK ABOUT THIS ANIME!)

Depending on how you view this anime to your all knowing otaku/weeboo/fanboy logic, you might side with one of us on what we have to say about it. We also throw in a minor review of Mars of Destruction for good fun (and that “review” is about as much as we are gonna say about “that” anime). And like the usual fashion, we talk about mecha anime we have been watching, old website providers who hosted old anime websites long ago, 6th graders who did Gundam Wing comics, some mic issues and much more.

Why j-pop fans and j-punk/ funk/ grunge/ goth/ metalcore/ new wave/ etc can never co-exist at a concert.

The visual to this anime was like sticking in your 8th generation MTV music video tape from 1984 int a VCR that's about as old and on its last leg because you wonder "Hey, what did I put on this thing 30 years ago?"
