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.


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!

OSMcast! Anime Weekend Atlanta 2013 10-14-2013


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.


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. Editing a photoshop file in our favor. This was the time it was ordained to be.

OSMcast! Otakon 2013 9-2-2013


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!


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.

OSMcast! MTAC Devil’s Dozen 4-11-2013

MTAC Devil's Dozen March 29-31, 2013

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.


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!™

OSMcast! MTAC Omega 2-28-2013


MTAC Omega. Another world, another time.

And our first actual episode of 2013! Recorded in 2012! It is the interview we had with some of the wonderful people that run MTAC we recorded on site last year. Sadly the file is the most tsun tsun file we have ever had and as such is mostly unedited.

But the staff we got to talk to are anything but dere as they tell us all sorts of things about last MTAC and this upcoming MTAC.

Which you should totally go to.


Go to MTAC.

Also Momocon.

OSMcast! Anime Weekend Atlanta 2012 9-29-2012


AWA 2012

OK so you would THINK we would release the MTAC podcast before the AWA but that would make sense now wouldn’t it? WELL TOO BAD DEARIES. The Habe of My Heart, Dylan  edited  this up so it goes up now! He even posted a description I’m gonna totally steal but then edit so why did I bother who knows:

Basil, Kevin, and Mike from the OSMcast and Hamacon join Charlie, Dylan, and John from the Chainsaw Buffet at Anime Weekend Atlanta in the wee hours of the morning to talk about the con, the experience of the frequent con-goer, running panels, and… a lot of other things. We forget. It was really late, OK?


New episode on Monday! Now I have to commit!


Unrelated but important:

The Jason David Frank Press Conference at MTAC Omega


Jason David Frank at MTAC Omega

So we have not updated in forever… Sorry about that! Meanwhile, while you wait for the more traditional OSMcast podcastion (we even  have a few episodes recorded already!), here’s something that may interest you.

This is the entire press conference that Jason David  Frank, power ranger, master of the red white and green, and mixed martial arts extraordinaire, answered questions for us at MTAC Omega. The OSMcast was not alone in asking questions, we were in fact merely one of many. Wondrous other media shindigs that were asking questions alike where groups such as 2ShotsofGeek, One Pixel JumpHJU Radio, Space Gypsies, CX2 Media, NickiDtv, and more! Probably much more. If we missed anyone please let us know so we can fix that.

And extra props goes out the Chainsaw Buffet guys for recording and editing the audio for us!


OK! So we have some episodes recorded that are in dire need  of editing before they get exposed out into the world wide web. But here is the inteneded order of release.

  • Ghost Rider 2: Best Superhero Movie of 2012
  • A Podcast Roundtable about Toonami
  • MTAC Omega
  • OSMinterview with Jessica Straus

After that who knows what craziness will ensue. Probably podcasts.


The Stuff Basil Paneled About at MTAC Omega

Ok folks I always keep promising that I’ll list out everything I panel about at cons… then never do. Soooooo here they are~

Getting Your Anime Groove Back

I have a bunch of anime I throw into a folder and pick out as I’m feeling it. So the line up changes up on occasion. I end up digging into episodes and pulling out bits for a quick overview for each, so you only get 4-5 shows a panel.

Manga That You Should Buy Right Now

This list is set in stone but in no particular order. It’s a PowerPoint-esque thing that works because there’s no video! I’m sure that if I do another panel, I can fill it it in with even more manga though~

OSMinterview: Richard Epcar @ MTAC Omega


The Man Who Voices It All: Richard Epcar

So there we were at MTAC Omega, and I (Basil) looked at Kevin and said, “OK, we GOTTA interview Richard Epcar. This is a thing that must occur.”

Kevin responded, “Uh, ok! But I have no clue what to say I mean I don’t really follow US voice actors and-”

“Kevin,” I then expertly cut him off, ” Trust me. You’ll understand once we do.”

I then proceeded to drop kick like 15 ninjas then got a sweet hair cut. Man my hair so light and fluffy now!

But the important part of the story  was  the Sunday of MTAC Omega. I sadly I had to educate the masses via pane form while Kevin got to  interview people. We met up afterwards and I asked, “So how did it go?”

“Basil.” Kevin gallantly stated, “We GOTTA interview Richard Epcar again. This is a thing that must occur. That man is amazing.”

This is that interview.

OSMcast: Anime Weekend Atlanta 2011 10-17-2011

Anime Weekend Atlanta

Anime Weekend Atlanta, September 28th - 30th, 2012

It’s that time again! The OSMcast continues it’s tradition of being a podcast where we cover conventions lately and occasionally some other stuff by going over the latest and greatest Anime Weekend Atlanta. The panels we ran, the panels we went to. The thrills, the parties, the giant robots, it’s all here!

Warning: Our wonder and amazing producer, DJ Inubito, is currently studying for a pretty major certification test, so Basil ended up hacking this episode into shape. Don’t worry though, it will never happen again! For all our sakes.


You’ll have noticed that the very same Ninja Consultants podcast we mentioned has already released and you can find it at the very post below this one! Also not mentioned, but totally should have, is the fact we got to meet Guy from DEEP Hurting and Jeff from Colony Drop. They are both awesome dudes and if you haven’t checked out DEEP Hurting or Colony Drop yet, you really should! The latest DEEP Hurting is Guy talking with Dave Merrill and Steve Harrison about Lensman and was probably the greatest audio thing to actually have come out of AWA.

Next time on the OSMcast, we finish out our con coverage for the year by talking about GMX in Nashville! Whoo, cons!
