List of Titles Shown at Anime Weekend Atlanta 2019

In the event that someone went to our panels at Anime Weekend Atlanta, took a card, and actually came to this site, we are living up to our totally not hollow promise and listing every title shown RIGHT HERE. If you liked what you saw, consider listening to our show! We’ve been around for a while, and you don’t have to listen to every episode, so feel free to check the Review Index up above to get a feel for what we thought about a title you enjoyed. Hopefully at some point we talked about at least one of those.

Anime World Order Show # 178 – YOU LOVE DRUGS Don’t You, Dennis? 224 Trimethylpentane Is In There, It’s a KILLER!

We’ve got a short window between conventions, writing assignments, and natural disasters to release an episode, so let’s take advantage! We give our convention report for Otakon 2019, have stern objections to Netflix’s marketing/propaganda wing, and then fulfill a Patreon goal by reviewing the listener-suggested Macross II: Lovers Again.

Promo: Right Stuf Anime (0:00 – 4:27)
Normally, the promo goes in the middle of the episode, but this one’s time sensitive and we figure most people download the episode within 24 hours of release. There are less than two days remaining if you want to donate to help Kyoto Animation in the aftermath of the July arson attack which made global headlines. 100% of your donation will go to Kyoto Animation (so no deductions for processing/administrative/transfer fees or whatever). Plus, any amount donated will go towards the free shipping spending limit ($50 for US, $250 for Canada).

Introduction (4:27 – 1:11:34)
All of us attended Otakon 2019 in Washington DC and weigh in on our experiences, shared though they may be. Topics discussed include the Walter E Washington Convention Center as a venue, the premieres of City Hunter: Shinjuku Private Eyes as well as Promare, how our panels went, STEVE BENNETT~!, and how Johnny Kitagawa was undeniably The Man.

Review: Macross II -Lovers Again- (1:11:34 – 2:43:02)
With the final goal (for now) having been met on our Patreon months ago, we figured we’d best actually deliver on our hollow promises for a change. Gerald, after having refused every other suggestion, agreed to cover this 1992 6-episode OVA series on account that we last reviewed a Macross title on this podcast twelve years ago in 2007 and that it holds strong nostalgia for his early days as an anime fan. All that Daryl could remember about it prior to this rewatch was that there were red ships and Banana Moon Love. Clarissa has never seen Macross II until now, knowing only of its reputation as “worst Macross anime ever.” In the resulting 90 minutes, we’ll finally get to the bottom of the decade-spanning question that is “is this the worst Macross anime ever…or the SECOND worst?”
