It’s beginning to to look a lot like awesome. Everywhere you go~

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and so we decided to podcast about a most wonderful movie. Since it is the season of holidays, we brought out one of our favorites: Satoshi Kon’s and studio Madhouse’s film, Tokyo Godfathers. You know, that lovable scamp of a movie all about three homeless people and a baby? Yeah, that movie. It’s great!

So grab some eggnog, curl up against the fire, and listen to an audio podcast all about a movie you should totally go and watch immediately.

OSMcast: Children Who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below 9-19-2011

Dunno if it wins the award for Longest Anime Title Ever, but it at least deserves an honorable mention.

During our wondrous Otakon escapades we got the chance to see a couple of their premiers, and since Otakon was nice enough to have them so we decided to review them. The second premier we wanted to talk about is Children Who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below by Makoto Shinkai. You probably know it better as “That New Makoto Shinkai Movie” as the title is just so gosh darn long! Joining us through the magic of the internet is Gerald from Anime World Order, who also gives us his run down on Anime Festival Orlando 2011.

Now, no one knows when this film will reach American shores. We hope it’s soon, as we’d love to see this movie again! But you never know. Knowing how the Japanese anime industry seems to roll, it’s much more likely that they’ll instead take the time to farm out the movie to movie festivals for a couple of years, then release the DVD and Blu-Ray in Japan at inflated prices and refuse to allow it to be sold in America for another year to reduce the chance of reverse importation, which only causes everyone to pirate it then forget about it, sabotaging US sales. Not that this is has ever happened before or anything.

AWA Fun Times are a comin’! What kind of OSMcast panels are we throwing out for AWA this year?! Well here they are:

  • Engrish Jambore II – Engrish Haldel: Basil and Drew started this panel at AWA last year, and we are returning once again to deliver tlue rove for all that rove engrish.
  • Anime’s Creepy Uncle – Go Nagai At A Glance: Basil and Kevin gush how awesome Go Nagai is and why you should think he is awesome too.
  • Getting Your Anime Groove Back: Think you might be getting out of anime? Well Basil just might have some shows to get you back in the game, as it were. And is an excuse to show off the first 13 minutes of Redline.

OSMcast: Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos 9-5-2011

HAHA JOHN OF CHAINSAW BUFFET! WE SAW THIS! YOU DIDN'T! SUCKER!!! (We kid!)
The gang's all... here?

Just when you thought we were going to post our review of the new Makoto Shinkai movie first, we double back and release our FMA movie one instead! That’s right, this time the OSMcast tackles the movie Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos, animated by Bones and directed by Kazuya Murata. We’re joined by Daryl Surat of Anime World Order, Otaku USA, Crunchyroll News, and wherever there is justice to be found. We also delve into the nature of the reoccurring shonen film staple, and Trigun: Badlands Rumble. It’s a fun time!

When will Funimation out  Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos? Chances are, as soon as they can.  They know how to strike while the iron is hot, unlike some other studios (Anchor Bay!). However, Trigun: Badlands Rumble is hitting September 27th!  You can tell Basil’s opinion of Trigun: Badlands Rumble as he keeps referring to it as Trigun: Badass Rumble. And Basil didn’t even like the original Trigun that much! So it should be a pretty safe buy. If you know, you like awesome stuff. Which we assume you do since well, you’re on our site.

AWA Fun Times are a comin’! What kind of OSMcast panels are we throwing out for AWA this year?! Well here they are:

  • Engrish Jambore II – Engrish Haldel: Basil and Drew started this panel at AWA last year, and we are returning once again to deliver tlue rove for all that rove engrish.
  • Anime’s Creepy Uncle – Go Nagai At A Glance: Basil and Kevin gush how awesome Go Nagai is and why you should think he is awesome too.
  • Getting Your Anime Groove Back: Think you might be getting out of anime? Well Basil just might have some shows to get you back in the game, as it were. And is an excuse to show off the first 13 minutes of Redline.

We’ll probably have actual times and places for these panels closer to the con itself. Next time, we’ll actually post our review of the latest Makoto Shinkai film Children Who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below, along with AWO‘s Gerald.
