In our final interview of the MTAC 15 to Life Series, we got found out who Erica Mendez’s Love Live is! Oh, I guess we should mention that Erica Mendez is the voice over artist of Aladdin in the Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic series as well as Ryuko Matoi in Kill la Kill. But importantly, we find out who her favorite Love Live is.

Because We Know What Anitwitter Wants™.

Of course we talk about her adventures in the acting of voices over things, as well as video games, and Mobile Fighter G Gundam! You know, all the finer things in life. This happened at MTAC 15 to Life, in a press conference style sort of the affair along with the Chainsaw Buffet and some other wonderful folks. Please, have a listen.

In our second interview of the MTAC 15 to Life Series, we had the wonderful chance to chat with Tiffany Grant. While best known for her role in Neon Genesis Evangelion, as Asuka, she has also been a ton of other roles! From as early as Kome Sawaguchi in Blue Seed (1996), to even Lune from The World God Only Knows (2015), Tiffany Grant is one of the most decorated Voice Over Artists around.

So it was extremely thrilling to gotten to have talked with. About all sorts of things, from Hello Kitty, to speaking German, to Hello Kitty some more. Possibly while speaking German. Oh, and some things about voice acting in anime, too. Sure. This happened at MTAC 15 to Life, in a press conference style sort of the affair along with the Chainsaw Buffet and some other wonderful folks. Please, have a listen.

Sometimes, you just gotta talk about cartoons. And in this latest, greatest episode of the OSMcast, we do just that! This is the episode where we talk about Rebecca Sugar’s and Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe. It’s a show about a boy and his three awesome magical moms. Or aunts. Or, something. It’s pretty great.

We also remissness about that MMO we are always playing, as well as MTAC (next year they’re going 16-bit!), video games, and some silly piece of cloth that Doug adores but will never let anyone ever see. Ever.

OSMnotes

Wow! Honestly we had no clue it’s been so long since we did a normal, everyday podcast about a thing we thought was awesome. Thankfully, Steven Universe is pretty amazing, so that works. In other news, Basil was recently on an episode of GME Anime Fun Time, talking about some Redline. It was pretty fun, as Redline is incredible fun and very easy to talk about.

Speaking of talking and things that are fun, we’ll be at Momocon! Well, Basil and Kevin shall be. Not only that,but we’ll be present a slew of panels. A slew! Like… four or five of them. Enough we may just have a post just about that itself. Basil will have to work on that.

Also, we have switched hosting! The OSMcast is now powered by simplecast.fm. What this means is that in May/June we will be switching RSS feeds! So if you would like to switch your RSS now, that might make things easier for the future!

Waaaaaaaaaay back in the earlier days of the OSMcast!, we met a young man named Micah Solusod. Turned out he was the English Voice Over Artist for the role of Soul in Soul Eater. Since then, the man has gone to do a whole lot more of that Voice Over Stuff! Guy’s been in Wolf Children, Kamisama Kiss, and just recently was one of the main guys in the English adaption of Ping Pong: the Animation!

So we decided it was time to get back in touch with the kid, and see what was going down lately. This happened at MTAC 15 to Life this year, in a press conference style sort of the affair along with the Chainsaw Buffet and some other wonderful folks. Please, have a listen.

The 2014 OSMawards for Most Awesome Manga and Anime

February is almost over! And as everyone agrees that Febuaray is the best month for looking back at the previous year, it’s time to wrap up the 2014 OSMawards! This time, it’s all about the wonders of Japanese comics and cartoons. You know, the good stuff.

Stuff such as, does Gundam the Origin keep the throne for Most Baller Manga in 2014? So how DID Viz Media get their groove back? Watch anime shows has Basil still yet to watch, even though he knows what’s good for him? All these burning questions are answered!

But don’t worry! We also talk about some video games, as well as some… books?! Yeah, reading words is hard! We have no idea why people would do such a thing. Reading. Geez.

The 2014 OSMawards for most Awesome Video Games, TV Shows, and Movies. But in reverse order.

Oh snap! It’s time for the 2014 OSMcast OSMawards! AKA the not so much awards, more like we just talk about the stuff we liked from the last year. Since last time we did it in the order of Video Games, then TV Shows, THEN Movies, we decided to switch things up! Into reverse order!

So now it’s Movies, then TV Shows, and THEN a whole bunch of Video Games.

Although we kind of start with a video game. But ignore that! Actually… Don’t. Don’t ignore that.

We (and by we, we mean Basil) also complain about things that won’t let us give them money, and also not letting us give them the money on stuff we wanted them to! It’s a gas.

First of, the OSMcast will be at Kami-con, covering the whole dang joint. Fun times shall be had! If you see us around (probably at the Hamacon table), come say hello!

It’s time to ring in the year two thousand and fifteen, and what better way to do that than with our longest episode title to date! Serioulsy… It could be the name of a light novel. Well, I guess we would need to make it “The OSMcast Roundtable of Our Youth and Current Age That One Winter Evening About PlayStation 3, 4, PSP and Vita.”

Ok, now it’s a light novel book title. But it is an oral history. Or something. In audio, in any case. Audio all about PlayStation Three and above. The games, the systems, more about the games, questions about things. I’m pretty sure that you now know what you are getting into. If not, well, good luck!

As it turns out, there has now been twenty years of PlayStation. So we decided to talk about those twenty years on the OSMcast! But as it turns out, there was a lot, a LOT to talk about just about the first PlayStation!

So listen on as we intend to talk about all of the PlayStation, then instead only talk about the first of PlayStation.

That said, we had a ton to say. We talk about the system itself, where it came from, and all the games we enjoyed on it throughout the years.

Turns out, there were a lot of games!
