Martin Billany aka LittleKuriboh

Wrapping up our MTAC in Love interviews we did, here’s the one we recorded with Martin Billany! Although most people know him as LittleKuriboh, creator of Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series. We here at the OSMcast know the name as the name that Basil cannot pronounce, ever.

Thankfully, this interview is nothing about that.

It’s instead about more fun, or Billany-esque topics.

OSMnotes

We want to give a gigantic thanks to both Martin Billany and MTAC for the chance for the interview. And since it was more press conference style, we weren’t the only ones there asking the questions! You also heard questions from Charlie from the Chainsaw Buffet, as well as Andrew from A Man and His Pod, among others. So big shout outs to them as well.

However the Chainsaw Boys do get extra shouts outs for their awesome presence at Hamacon. Hamacon of course being the con where we at the OSMcast were so busy helping make happen, that we are really lucky to have this interview to release instead of an actual episode!

But we’ll be back with an actual episode… At some point!

Marianne Miller

Wait what, you thought we were done with MTAC in Love yet? Not quite! This latest interview is with Marianne Miller, who has voiced in a several anime like Sword Art Online, Squid Girl, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, and a few others!

She’s also really into Dragon Age, which worked out because we are, too! We also talk about squid stuff, and tattoos, and well a whole bunch of stuff. Like poop!

It’s good stuff, so you should probably go listen. Right now. Not sure why you are still reading this text. Other than the fact that I’ve already typed it, and you are looking for catharsis. If that’s the case, I’m done. Feel relieved. Now go listen to Marianne Miller!

Yes, we gave them shout outs before, and will likely do so again. In, you know, about a week or two.

Not a lot to say right now otherwise, as we here at the OSMcast have a whooooole bunch of work left to do to get ready for Hamacon! Why is time still moving, we need to get these things done oh noooooo

OSMinterview! Vedetta Marie & ScatterDOTFashion @ MTAC In Love

Vedetta Marie

ScatterDOTFashion

Sometimes, you gotta spin the wheel, play the cards, hit the Greed button in an MMO and hope you come out of the dungeon with a pretty cool new thing. At this past MTAC (that MTAC In Love con you’ve been hearing so much from us about?), we took a chance. We had an interview that we seriously had no clue what was going to happen.

Thankfully, we came out of it with a pretty cool new thing! And that thing is this interview. We got the chance to sit down and chat with Vedetta Marie and ScatterDOTFashion, a cosplay and Japanese fashion due par excellance.

Now, you may think that the OSMcast is nothing but glamor, pizazz, and fashionability, but really all we know about fashion comes from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures and Paradise Kiss. Which isn’t nearly enough keep up with these fashionista kids.

However, they are totally cool people and it ended up being a really fun talk. Would chat with again! Five stars (Out of OSM, obviously)!

OSMinterview! Samantha Inoue-Harte @ MTAC In Love

The Hatmaster. Or Meister. Anime loves Meisters.

We’re not done MTAC in Lovin’ yet, folks! We had a chance to sit down several amazing people during this year MTAC, and we have only just begun releasing those interviews! But out of all of them, Samantha Inoue-Harte might be the most interesting of bunch. At the very least, she has them all beat in just sheer quantities of hats she has worn throughout the years.

We’re talking animator hats, voice over artist hats, producer hats, gore effects person hats, and more but pretty much all around delightful hats. Lately, according to MTAC, “Samantha is a Producer and Partner at Animetropolis, a boutique transmedia studio that develops and produces compelling cross-cultural creative content with partnering Japanese Anime studios. Animetropolis partnered with IDA (International Digital Artists) as production partner and lead animation unit for a Japanese/American co-produced CG-animated feature adaptation of Tailchaser’s Song, the acclaimed best-selling fantasy novel by author Tad Williams.”

She talks about that, and a whole lot more. So much more.

So big shout outs to them as well. Yes, we gave them shout outs before, and will likely do so again. In, you know, about a week or two.

But what’s next week going to hold? Flamencos. Samurais. Samurai Flamenco.

Another Year, another Easter, another MTAC. Like in years  of the past, we ventured into the Middle Tennessee Anime Convention for their latest year, MTAC In Love. But. were we in love with the con this year?

Well, like any loving relationship, we had our ups, and our downs. There were some missed communications, but at the same time there were moments of bliss. Ultimately though, at the end of the day or con or whatever, we could look into each other’s eyes and see that the fire was still there.

Speaking of loving relationships, we are once again joined at the hip with the Chainsaw Buffet podcast for this episode. We wouldn’t want to have it anyother way. <3

This was Dan’s first appearance at an American anime convention to date.

OSMcast! Kami-Con Season 6 2-17-2014

Kami-Con Season 6: Heartless in Wonderland, where the hearts roam free and wild and uh, less?

In our first con report of 2014, we decided to head down to Birmingham, AL to check out Kami-Con‘s sixth year. As it turns out, we had a great time at the con! Sadly, not such a great time in the city. However, you’ll be able to hear all about the good, the bad, and the awesome contained in audio form therein!

We also brought back our “REALLY real real” segments for this conquestable podcast. What are those, you may ask? The “REALLY real real” segments are when we go forth and talk to the con goers  themselves on how they enjoyed  the con and their own person highlights. Sometimes they get their own episode, but this time we decided  to included them  during the breaks.

OSMnotes

And we mentioned it during the podcast, but once again we want to congratulate Ray and Chelsea on their getting married and wish them nothing but the best. We also wish Kami-Con the best  but the  con itself did not get married. That would have been weird.

But you know what aren’t weird? Time Cues!

AWA 2013

So here we are. A podcast about Anime Weekend Atlanta 2013. A podcast about Anime Weekend Atlanta 2013 with Basil and Kevin as well as Charlie and Dylan from the Chainsaw Buffet. A podcast about Anime Weekend Atlanta 2013 with Basil and Kevin as well as Charlie and Dylan from the Chainsaw Buffet where they talk about many things, from the sudden conventions growth, to food trucks, to what they did, panels that we were, lines that were long, fun that was had, some food trucks again, and just how big of a Carl Horn fanboy really is Basil, anyway?

So in other words, it was a podcast about Anime Weekend Atlanta 2013.

OSMnotes

This was recorded on Sunday, edited all night on Monday, and released before we went to sleep. Therefore, no matter when you see this, or what the website may or may not say: We are calling this episode Up On Time. Throwing it up on the board. Claiming victory over defeat.

OTAKON 2013 AUGUST 9-10-11, 2013

Con season* is upon us again folks and this time the OSMcast went to one of the biggest anime cons of them all: Otakon! The anime con SO big the city it is in can barely contain it. And so big, the OSMcast alone could not handle it. Well, we probably could but we thought it would be fun to chat about the con with some friends.

And what better friends could we have asked than Daryl and Gerald of the Anime World Order podcast!? True friends, you know the kind that make sure to get their burger orders right, so that nothing terrible can happen.

… As you listen, you may discover that we may not be the best judge of character, at least with THAT criteria! But all that, and more, so much more on this episode of the OSMcast!

OSMnotes

Here is the Otakon 2013 mug. The Chi’s Sweet Home is used for scale.

Sorry for the couple of days hiccup, folks! But things are back on track!

We would once again like to  thank Otakon for their kindness and generosity for letting us cover their convention, and to thank Gerald and Daryl for taking the time to chat with us! Also we’d like to thank Ink for letting us use his picture of Basil before the Yoko Kanno concert! By the way, he did a great write up about the concert for Ani-Gamers that you should check out!

*No not the webcomic GEEZ although it’s pretty cool you should check it out.

MTAC Devil’s Dozen March 29-31, 2013

It’s currently raining like mad out here in Alabama so what better time to curl up, grab a beverage of your choosing, and listen to us as we spin the yarn of MTAC 2013, aka MTAC Devil’s Dozen.

The hopes, the dreams, the tribulations, the successes, and all the rest that this con brought to us, nay, the world. Including, not to the fault of the con, the worst panel we have ever, EVER been to! Listen in as Basil gets angrier than he ever does in life. And he works retail! As per Official OSMcast Guidelines, we are joined at the hip by the Chainsaw Buffet podcast.

OSMnotes

MTAC’s next year is going to full of LOVE so that should prove interesting! Speaking of love, we are planning to release our interview with Nao Yazawa this upcoming Monday. As I think we mentioned during the podcast it was kinda split into two small segments and Basil is currently figuring how to best handle that. And after that, we’ll have a LONG LOST EPISODE brought forth from the year previous year. It’s about the relaunch of Toonami!

Topical. That’s the OSMcast Guarantee!™
