Would you believe it, another Evangelion podcast!? It’s true! Originally, the plan was to do a podcast on just 1.11 and 2.22 together. But we soon discovered by the time we were done talking about 1.11… We had already spent a whole podcast on it! We just could not advance to talk about Eva 2.22. Who would have thought? Anyhow, enjoy yet another OSMcast!, where we talk about the second movie in the Rebuild of Evangelion series.
Boy Square-Enix keeps on wanting to hang out with us! Last episode, it came out the day Sora is announced for Smash. Today, the Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker Media Tour’s embargo has lifted so there is a ton of great video footage of the new jobs and things out. But over here? It’s all LCL up in here. Well, that and Time Cues:
September 1, 2007. The Earth changed. It experienced a cataclysmic event that is known known as Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone. Then later it hit DVD and Blu-Ray and was was retitled as Evangelion: 1.01 then later still, 1.11. At the time of this podcast, it is now still 1.11, but is now on Amazon Prime Video. It still believed to (not) be alone. As it has the other three movies also on Amazon Prime Video. Chances are by the time you are approaching this episode, you know about Eva’s whole deal. Nevertheless, please enjoy this podcast in the OSM of Evangelion series.
So Sora’s in Smash, huh? Well that is a thing that also happened today. Not that we knew that going into this podcast. Also, not that would have changed anything! Or that you should join the Discord or support us on Patreon. Nor would it change these Time Cues:
The OSM of Evangelion just keeps on rolling on as this whole interview train continues! Before we pull into the station and start releasing the episodes on the Rebuild movies, John once again surprises us in just the best ways. This time, he sits down at the virtual table with the returning champion and all around treasure, Amanda Winn Lee. You may know her best as the voice of Rei Ayanami in both the original ADV Films dub of Neon Genesis Evangelion and the End of Evangelion, along with the Amazon Prime Video dubs of the Rebuild Movies. However, she is also the voice of Yukiko Amagi from Persona 4, Rally Vincent from Gunsmith Cats, and just all around a great mom. And finally, someone that can explain whatever the hell Delta 8 is! (Does contain Evangelion 1.0+3.0 Thrice Upon Some Spoilers)
We want to thank Amanda Winn Lee once again for taking the time to chat with us! We also want to say hey, if you have some donating cash for a good cause, please check out the Lady Eva Pilot Halloween Slumber Party. Amanda Winn Lee, Tiffany Grant, and Deneen Melody are getting together for an epic live stream event to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Plus if you donate $100, you get a signed poster, probably!
And if you ever needed a list of things that she does that you can click on? We got you covered.
So there you are, chillin’ on the roof of the school, as you do. Just going about your day, getting the latest instalment of the The OSM of Evangelion series prepped for release. Then, out of the blue, comes in something just incredibly unexpected yet entirely welcomed. Just right on top of you. That was John yesterday with a fresh OSMinterview in virtual hand. He got the chance to talk with just the delightful Deneen Melody, who you may know now as the voice of Mari Illustrious-Makinami from the Amazon Prime dubs of the Rebuild of Evangelion films. But can also hear her as Zoé Lee aka Vesperia* in Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir, May in Pokémon Masters EX, and in all sorts of things! (Does contain Evangelion 1.0+3.0 Thrice Upon Some Spoilers)
*Ok so maybe not thatVesperia. But as far as we can tell, Deneen Melody is pretty magical and is also a legit faerie… So maybe she is actually that Vesperia, too?
We want to thank Deneen Melody once again for taking the time to chat with us! And heartily and emphatically encourage you to check out her Twitter and website.
As the OSM of Evangelion continues, John sits down at virtual interview table with the voice of the ADV/Rebuild movies’ Shinji Ikari, Spike Spencer! But unlike Shinji, Spike has no issues getting into the robot. In fact, he tends to get into lots of them! He’s also a public speaker, voice coach, life coach, podcaster, real estate investor, just all sort of robots to get into. But what you should get into right now, is this interview! (Does contain Evangelion 1.0+3.0 Thrice Upon Some Spoilers)
We want to thank Spike Spencer once again for taking the time to chat with us! And did we mention that he gets into all the robots? He does! Let us list you the ways:
September 13, 2000. The Earth changed. It experienced a cataclysmic event that is known known as The Second Impact. Or it did in another world, another time. In this time, it’s August 24th, 2021. In this world, all of Evangelion can now be streamed in the United States. With Netflix having the Evangelion TV show along with The End of Evangelion movies, and Amazon Prime Video having the Rebuild movies. So, on this day, in this world, we have begun the OSM of Evangelion Podcast Series. Four podcasts worth, to talk about this landmark show and movie franchise.
For the first episode we are talking about the Neon Genesis Evangelion TV series, along with The End of Evangelion movie. Written, directed, and lived by Hideaki Anno and animated by studio Gainax (along with assistance by studio Tatsunoko for the TV series, and Production I.G for the End of Evangelion movie).
First off, we want to say just BIG OL’ HAPPY BIRTHDAYS to own nakama John Robbins! As well as fellow anime podcaster Austin from the Third Impact Anime podcast. Hope they are great ones. Secondly, if you wanna wish them a happy birthday, or perhaps a belated one if you see this post after today… Join our Discord! It’s fun! Really. Mostly. Probably. We hope so, anyway. Now, Time Cues:
Every once in a while, a show will come out of nowhere. And just, I dunno, slap you upside the head with it’s goodness? But that slap, it’s not always so fast. Sometimes, you get that slow slap. But when that slap hurts, it hurts so good. That’s ODDTAXI. Or Odd Taxi, which is an easier way to read it. It’s an anime that’s a gritty noir about a taxi driver and the people he takes places. The driver, is also a walrus. The show is about a lot of things. Oddly enough, so is this podcast!
First, here’s a few things that we talked about in reference to ODDTAXI in the podcast!
So it’s 2021 and supposedly things are returning to some semblance of, what some may call, normal. However, as it turns out, normal is still a ways away. And of course we know that because of video games! For example, E3. Usually the Electronic Entertainment Expo is a ginormous in person event with crazy press conferences, announcements, and media and people on Twitch and YouTube playing all these vertical slices of games that may or may not be real.
But not this year. This year it was all digital, where everyone stayed home and just watched the press conferences online like everyone else. And it became clear that not everyone decided to Bring Their “A” Game. And that’s OK. Neither did we!
So as it turns out, getting a puppy and seasonal allergies is a terrible combo, we do not recommend it. But with anime cons slowlyreturning to us, why not take a trip back to memory lane? That’s right, we’re back to our second episode of our OSMquest Kawaii Caper series! This time, we wrap up Thursday night and get into some Friday shenanigans. Cosplayers! A Dealer’s Room! PANELS. And more! Kawaii Caper is made by Ettin64, as a hack of Grant Howitt’s Honey Heist.
It is the mid 2000’s in the beforetimes when anime conventions are still a thing and not a way to exacerbate a deadly public health crisis. CRONCH, the local anime convention in your mid-sized southern town is in its third year, and has unexpectedly risen to regional prominence. And with that prominence comes sweet, sweet swag. It would be such a shame if something… or someone… would happen to it. (Spoilers: We are those someones.)
Ever wonder what’s next in life? Perhaps even in the next life? Sure, reincarnation is a possibly, but have you ever considered reincarnating into a JRPG? Chances are you have as the genre of isekai is now an anime ever-presence, and people are just dying all over the place to score some sweet levels! But if you ever had to pick only one series to follow, might we suggest the series That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime? It’s a light novel series by Fuse and illustrated by Mitz Vah, but also comes in both anime and manga varieties! The anime is developed by studio Eight Bit, and the manga is illustrated by Taiki Kawakami.
PS I know it’s listed in the Time Cues but do not sleep on preordering Dear Brother that show is so good you don’t even know. Unless you do know, and have already preordered it.
So if you listen to this episode, we talk about puppies. And as Puppy Fever has caught on, it also grabbed Basil and Anna quite strongly. In short, they also have a new puppy! And well… As it turns out, getting a new puppy sure can take a lot out of ya! Also, while we absolutely recommend getting vaccinated as soon as one can… Maybe don’t adopt a new puppy in the same time frame. But Basil and Anna’s new puppy Yda is settling in just fine now, and by this Friday the core Alabama crew will be fully vaccinated! So that’s very exciting and hopefully that news will buoy you through the fact that we meant for past couple of weeks. But worry not about what comes next, for that is only Time Cues:
