Anime World Order Show # 169 – This Year’s Trivia Episode Has a Nice Number In It

With Thanksgiving holidays upon us, as a public service to those of you with lengthy commutes on your way to or from relatives it’s time once again for another trivia episode, this time as tinged by mystery-colored happiness thanks to our special guest Emily from Shoujo Manga Land, aka MagicalEmi on Twitter! So tune in and revel in the glory of Riccardo Zara’s beard:

Introduction (0:00 – 21:26)
For those who don’t know of Emily’s exploits, we talk to her about some of her otaku pursuits, namely sparkly-eyed young heroines being smacked in the face by sportsballs. All this talk of balls being smashed into faces invariably leads to another topic of Emily’s expertise, ledicomi! As Emi doesn’t have access to the fancy pants recording apparatus that we do, there may be some audio pops and low volume throughout, but we’ve done what we can to reduce it. Oh, and for those who don’t know what the username Magical Emi is a reference to:

Promo: Right Stuf Anime (21:26 – 23:11)
The Black Friday weekly sale is upon us starting tomorrow, to then be followed by the Cyber Monday weekly sale, to then be followed by the Holiday sale! Thousands of items will be on sale for the next month and change, and every day there will be a featured item so be sure to check every day because these are going to be things that people will want. There are still a few copies of The Rose of Versailles left, so be sure to grab that before it’s gone!

Not to disappoint, but our sources indicate that the above photo is NOT a young ReviewBrah.

Win Daryl Surat’s Porn-A-Roonie (23:11 – 2:42:46)

Please be sure to read that phrase in an Extremely Ted Cruz voice. This year, we have multiple categories of questions submitted by YOU, dear listeners! So listen on for nearly 2.5 hours as Daryl, Clarissa, and Emily stumble their way through questions that they don’t know the answers to, even ones you think “they definitely know this because I know this, AARRRGH WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE FOR NOT KNOWING THIS?!” Listen, our show’s already never going to be on Spotify, so we may as well go full bore with the unlicensed usage of decades-old songs!

Anime World Order Show # 168 – Even If You Don’t Want to Listen, Listen

For this special SPOOOOOOOOOKY edition of the Anime World Order podcast, we’re rejoined by Mike Toole to review the most recent of Yoshiyuki Tomino’s head-scratching trainwrecks, Gundam Reconguista in G. Why do we keep doing this to ourselves? It’s like Tomino knows the spawn locations and keeps getting us over and over, then teabags us–HEY WAIT A SECOND

Introduction (0:00 – 23:14)
We catch up with Mike, who’s been doing convention stuff these past few months along with various Discotek Media projects, the latest of which that he’s free to talk about is their re-release of Area 88, one of the first anime we ever reviewed. Go listen to that one way back in Show # 4 from 2006. This leads to talk of various English vocalists in classic anime and a bunch of short audio clips that despite being short would probably get us copyright strikes if we ever put these shows on Youtube or Spotify or whatever. We also talk a bit about recent developments in the world of streaming anime, namely the HiDive/FUNimation/VRV/Crunchyroll etc shifts going on.

All three volumes of The Wings of Rean are BACK IN STOCK, BABY. You can also get G-Reco model kits and–oh yeah!–the show itself, which we never would have seen were it not for the dedication of Nozomi Entertainment to bring us all of the Gundam. Thanks, guys. This episode never would have existed without you.

Review: Gundam Reconguista in G (23:14 – 2:01:17)
Something happened here. I don’t know, man. You can get the entire series WHICH IS SURE TO BE AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE FOR YOU courtesy of either Right Stuf or Amazon, though which is cheaper depends on whether there’s a sale going on.

Closing (2:01:17 – 2:03:07)
Next time we’re doing THE TRIVIA EPISODE, which contrary to Gerald’s beliefs are not unpopular at all. At least, no more unpopular than the rest of this show anyway. If you want to suggest possible questions, contact Gerald (AND GERALD ONLY) through his social media accounts. What are those? We’ve been embedding that information into every episode of the show, and you can also get them from the sidebar of this very webpage.
