Happy Monday, everybody! Let’s kick off the week with something wholesome. And you can’t spell “wholesome” without “Mob Psycho 100,” the anime by Bones adapted from the manga by ONE. OK you probably can spell wholesome without Mob… But you should really give it a try. We’ll tell you why!
MTAC is so close! Like, it starts this week close! And while we don’t have any panels this time, we’ll be doing out best to get some sweet interviews on the books for your listening enjoyment. Until then, have some of that latest dance craze that is sweeping the nation, Time Cues:
OK folks strap in, because we are about to get up into some serious moon power. That’s right, we are talking about the animated sensation that’s bigger than Power Rangers and Turtles COMBINED. Aw yea, we are talking about everyone’s favorite, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon! Well, the movies anyway! We recently got to catch theatrical release of Sailor Moon R, S, AND SuperS and we just couldn’t wait to yammer about them on a microphone. Please share and enjoy!
Out of the three, you can buy Sailor Moon movies R and S pretty easily! SuperS will be along soon though, we’re sure.
Same show, new podcast, and a slightly different way to title them! So let’s get to the whole point here. We have an episode of the OSMcast! right here, for you, about Aggretsuko! That wonderful rocking red panda pal from our friends at Sanrio. The show is on Netflix, made by the studio Fanworks, and directed by Rarecho. We also talk about other things! Which you can find out about by listening to the episode! Or check the Time Cues, but that’s not nearly as much fun!
Are we on Netflix? Of course not, as we are a podcast! Why would we be on Netflix? But you know what IS on Netflix? Studio Trigger’s Little Witch Academia! So let’s talk about Little Witch Academia. Sound good? Great!
Little Witch Academia is also great! Go watch it! But also read up on some delicious, succulent, Time Cues~

So why not tackle a podcast in 2017 with the anime everyone has been talking about?? I dunno, I guess we could have talking about other things, but Yuri!!! on Ice has been on constant repeat for a few members of Team OSM so it seemed like the one to start with. So, here we are! With a podcast all about the anime Yuri!!! on Ice, by the studio MAPPA, directed by Sayo Yamamoto, and written by Mitsurō Kubo.
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.
Since we have already established that no one reads anything, why do we even both with Time Cues? The world may never know…!

Anime That Started in 2014, But Still Kickin’ It in 2015
And in case anyone is in Birmingham this weekend, it’s Kami-con time! We’ll be there! Not running any panels… But we’ll be there! We’ll be going to other people’s panels and various other events. Like Vertical Comics’ panels! Chances are, you’ll be hearing all about it. But just don’t talk about it, be about it! Go to Kami-con! Check out the vertical panels and tell them how baller their manga is. That way, they’ll know we sent you.
So since we are gearing up for Anime Weekend Atlanta and we know you kids like those Japanese cartoons, we decided to talk about one! This time we decided to talk about Ringing Bell, an anime from the studio that Sanrio built, helmed by Masami Hata and base doff the book by Takashi Yanase. Also released by Discotek and with excellent commentary track by Mike Toole.
We also talk about the normal things we tend to, like Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, BUT ALSO pizza. And we cover some crazy allegations about how we are from the southern part of the United States of AMERICA, that SOMEHOW we don’t understand what can make a good pizza. Naturally, we handle this with the grace and aplomb that properly befits southern gentlemen.
Buy some Ringing Bell! If you happen to be at AWA, go ahead and track down Discotek’s booth! They might have it, and usually at, or better than the price that Amazon will have. You cannot go wrong!

And so OSMcast panels at AWA. We have FIVE OF THEM. Please come to them! Here they are:
Boys to Men: Shonen and Seinen (Friday, September 26 • 5:00pm, CGC – 105): So what does One Piece, Naruto, Ranma ½, Nichijou, and Blue Exorcist all have in common? Their anime and manga for boys! But what does Ghost in the Shell, Chobits, Mysterious Girlfriend X, and Monster have in common? They’re for men! Wait, what? What does any of this even mean? Don’t worry, it’s fine. Shonen and Seinen are entire worlds of different kinds of anime and manga, and we’re here to show you the way.
Manga You Need to Buy Right Now (Saturday, September 27 • 12:30pm, CGC – 113 & 114): Manga, the world of Japanese comics. There’s a whole lot of them, and it seems like today there are even more ways to buy them than ever. Let us be your guide in this new comic landscape. We’ll show you all the ways to buy your manga, physically and digitally. And hey, we’ll even tell you about some of the neater Japanese comics to have come out lately!
Spice Girls: Shojo and Josei (Saturday, September 27 • 2:45pm, CGC – 106):Shojo are Japanese comics and cartoons for girls, and Josei are the same but for women. But there’s way more to shojo than romance stories and Sailor Moon for shojo, and even more to josei than even that. We’ll be tackling both terms, what they mean, and all the various incarnations therein we can think of. There’s going to sparkles, and tears, and crocodiles, and justice, and who knows what else?
Anime and Manga in the Digital Age (Sunday, September 28 • 3:45pm, CGC – 102):Anime isn’t just discs anymore, and manga isn’t just books! Nowadays, with the advent of smart phones, tablets, Rokus, and other ways of streaming stuff, there are more ways to get your anime and manga fix than ever before! There are, in fact, so many you may have not heard of them all. But we know about most of them, and can tell you where they are and what they’re good for.
There are some things we thought we would never see. One of things being a Dragon Ball Z movie in theaters in America. Furthermore, a Dragon Ball Z movie in a theater in our own town. For that Dragon Ball Z movie to be highly entertaining. We also never thought we would see a movie called Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods.
Another thing that we never thought we would be able to do? To be able to make a podcast about a movie called Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, that was a Dragon Ball Z movie we watched in a theater in our home town.
These are now all things that have happened.
And the world was better for it.
We hoped that everyone has fun at Otakon! It sounded amazing and we totally wish we could have made it. Maybe next year!
