So this past few weekends ago, Seishun Con happened. And it was fun! One of the fun things was yet another attempt at an OSMcast LIVE! show. This time, we planned on doing a podcast about Crusher Joe with our pals over at Akihabara Renditions. Only… Funny thing! Communication failed, and half of us did not watch Crusher Joe in time for this panel. So, this is the audio you get instead.
Next time, a slightly more planned episode recorded at Seishun Con, along with our Tennessee compatriots.
Whoa what’s this craziness this is not the normal OSMcast?!? Nope this is a whole new OSMcast-produced thing, we’re calling Touched by a Duelist! It’s a new weekly, show where we are covering the anime series Touched and Yu-Gi-Oh!
Touch being the baseball anime, based on the manga by Mitsuru Adachi, and Yu-Gi-Oh! being the card battling anime, based on the manga by Kazuki Takahashi.
This episode we are covering the Touch episode 1, “No matter what everybody says, we’re twins!!” And the Yu–Gi-Oh! episode 1, The Fearsome Blue-Eyes White Dragon.
Accidentally continuing on a spooky-ish track*, we are gathered tonight to release a podcast about demons! And slayers! Of, well, demons! It’s an anime and manga called Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. The manga is by Koyoharu Gotouge, with the anime adaption by Ufotable.
*Clearly you can tell by how echo-y it is. Because it’s spooky, not because it was much a more open room this time or anything…
As of this recording, the anime is out there streaming courtesy of Aniplex. So you can find it on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu. The manga is released by Viz, and they can be bought via volumes either physically or digitally. Or, you can stream the volumes on your electronic device via their Shonen Jump Plus app. But while you are buffering, have some Time Cues:
Feeling up for something s̵̹̲̒͝p̸̥̔͂o̶̫̩͂o̸̦͋̓k̴͖̝̋̀y̷̘͌̿? Well we have the podcast for you! In the last of our Hamacon 10 podcasts, here is another OSMquest guest starring the Master of Decreepitude himself, Mr Creepy Pasta! Or is it MrCreepyPasta? Or Ḿ̷̻̳͉̞͑͝͝r̸̢͕̫̃̓̏C̴̘̀r̸̺͌̽̔e̴̤̎̍̀̎e̷͓͑̃̍p̴̝̟̽͜͝ý̶͖̬͖́́͜P̴̢͍̺̈́̾a̵̭͓̪̤̓̀š̵̖ṭ̸̄́̃a̵̯͎͌? Either way, we RPGed it up with him! Creepily.
Oh no, a cliffhanger?!? Sadly. sometimes you can’t always get a full game into an interview slot. But what can you do? Invite the OSMcast and Mr Creepypasta to your next con! I dunno about the Creepmeister, but the OSMcast comes pretty cheap.
The name of the game is The Beast, made by Grant Howitt. It is a game where you are monster hunter hunting the monsters. Somewhere in Eastern Europe, because that’s where all the best monsters are. You can ask anyone, they will tell you this. Speaking of things you can do, you can find all of Grant’s wonderful games at https://gshowitt.itch.io/.
Sometimes, you get interviews at a con. But sometimes, you get them straight from the source. You get some of that good stuff. Fresh, uncut, farm to table, pure internet kind of interview. For this episode, our wonderful master interviewer John sat down with the amazing Dorothy Fahn.
Lately, you may have heard her as the voice of Mercedes in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. But she has lent her voice to many characters, like Meryl Stryfe in Trigun, or Melody from the latest take of Hunter x Hunter. Or perhaps, all the Digimon? She’s been a few (Lalamon, Sunflowmon, Lilamon, and Rosemon)!
We wanted to thank Dorothy for her time with us. It was our pleasure and we hope everyone enjoyed listening!
Hello out there! So, today turns out to be Hashtag International Podcast Day, and so we have a podcast for you! To be all… International with. During your uh… Day.
So in this episode we got to interview Sequya, aka Rainbow Redwood, one of Hamacon’s Cosplay Guests.
Here, have some more info about Sequya, courtesy of the Hamacon wesbite! Rainbow Redwood is an award winning cosplayer, YouTube content creator, and seamstress. At the age of 14 she taught herself how to use a sewing machine and has never stopped learning since then. Her love for theater, dance, and historical clothing naturally lead her to perusing cosplay. At conventions when she’s not completing in craftsmanship cosplay contests she enjoys being a co-captain of Hamacon Idols*, hosting panels, teaching dance workshops (KPOP and Love Live), and judging cosplay contests.
OK, so what do you do when you have some of your favorite people to interview. In this case, Micah Solusod and Ayu Sakata. Only, you have interviewed them. Several times. In fact, last time they decided to interview you, instead. So now what do you do?
Apparently, the answer is you play a tabletop RPG with them! So that’s what we did.
The name of the game is Honey Heist, made by Grant Howitt. It is a game where you are bear. You do crimes. We, as bears, did crimes. So many crimes. Micah was new to this, but you can’t tell. You can find all of Grant’s wonderful games at https://gshowitt.itch.io/.
Dipping once more into the wonderfully rich Hamacon 10 well, we have this lovely interview with Ask Cosplay-Senpai!
Wonder whom this wonderful person is? Well, haven you ever been stuck on a costume piece? Can’t quite figure out how that prop goes together? Ask Cosplay-Senpai!
With a decade of personal experience, over 25,000 items created, and hundreds of convention panels over the past decade, they are here to share their love for media, fandom, and—most of all—costuming! Find them on Instagram @askcosplaysenpai for tutorials, live builds and walkthroughs, and any advice you need on making your next cosplay the best it can possibly be.
There is also this delightful interview with them.
Find Ask Cosplay-Senpai in all these socially media-type places! And also buy stuff from their super-good buy stuff Website store!
Happy Labor Day! This is the holiday where we celebrate the good, hard-working folks over at NERV. Their tireless efforts to protect us from those dastardly Angels and their constant attempts at creating the Third Impact. And who is the hardest working person there? Well, it would be none other than the wonderful, talented, and won’t hurt us at all ever, Asuka Langley Soryu!
What we are getting at here is that this is an interview at Hamacon with renowned voice over artist Tiffany Grant, known best for her role as said Asuka Langley Soryu from Neon Genesis Evangelion.
So, kids. When two podcasts like each other very much, they have a crossover episode. And when the OSMcast! and Third Impact Anime both like the works of Masaaki Yuasa and studio Science Saru? They have an episode about the movie The Night Is Short, Walk on Girl, adapted from the novel by Tomihiko Morimi.
Protip: This crazy experiment was recorded live at Hamacon 10. This is also the first time we have tried such a thing, so the audio is a little weird here and there. But still pretty listenable!
