It’s a podcast from the OSMcast in 2016! About… 2015! How exciting! So, we thought we were back, only we weren’t. Whoops! But we are here, with an episode. That we recorded all the way back in January! It’s the first half of the 2015 OSMawards, that now is in fact, the entirety.
So yes. While this is the latest OSMcast, this is also the last… To update on a Monday! In the future, we are going to update on every other Friday, and see how that works out. And we should have things coming, as we have recorded a whole new episode last week, and have some interviews from MTAC. But until then, show some time cues~
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.
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!
Secondly, Time Cues~

OK FOLKS! Strap in because we are in it for the long haul as the OSMcast! tackles all of anime and manga we could for our second half of the 2013 OSMawards. Over two hours of podcast insanity, all for you.
We talk about titans, part timers, tanuki, crowds, giant ro-bros, pants (or rather lack of pants), baseball, hunters, xs, more hunters, economics, bicycles, farming, infernos, vikings, flowers, gears, crocodiles with glasses on tier heads, just all SORTS of stuff!
We ALSO answer Gerald of Anime World Order’s question to Hisui of Ninja Cons- Reverse Thieves just because we CAN. Well, Kevin can. Only Kevin had the fortitude to withstand the might of such a question.
Lo and Behold we have returned. It is now the year of 2014. But 2013 had a lot of cool stuff in it, so we have brought back the OSMawards!
In the first part of our two episode saga of days past, we tackle the staple that is Video Gaming. From 3DS, to PS3, to 3DS, to 360, to Wii U, to 3DS, to PS4, to 3DS, we cover all the game that tickled our 2013 fancies. We then venture into the realm of not-so Japanese TV Shows, then wrap up with Movies.
We also talk about Space Dandy, fancy watches that tell you things, magical boards of water and ink, and more!
So much more, including possibly the end of Doug’s never working freezer?! STAY TUNED.
As we all know, the first thing you do in a new year is to look back at the previous year, unless you have a decade to deal with. So to ring in 2011 we have got the first half of the 2010 OSMawards! In this just-shy-of-two-hours BEHEMOTH of a podcast we tackle the “passive” media of 2010. TV shows, movies, anime, novels, stuff you consume but don’t interact with… pretty much everything expect video games. So strap in, get some nice hot cocoa a warmin’, and listen to us yammer for a while!
Bonus: And gaze up the MAJESTY that is OSMrobo that Lee drew while recording. His fists are fists of JUSTICE. And awesomeness.
Bonus props to Narutaki of Reverse Thieves for rising to the challenge letting us know her picks via Twitter to help us fill in the gaps! If you’s also like to your thoughts in on a particular subject before we record, just keep an eye out for Basil’s twitter feed. Usually the day of recording or so, he’ll be asking for input.
Speaking of asking for input, Basil was invited onto the Chainsaw Buffet podcast to further talk about the year 2010, which he did with gusto. Keep an eye for it!
Normally on the OSMcast!, we tend to try and talk about the things that we like. Things that are awesome. Sometimes awesomely good, sometimes awesomely bad. Occasionally however, we do decided to get our hate on. This is that kind of show. HOWEVER, what we DO bring along with this (2 HOUR) cornucopia of bile and anger is an awesome guest: Gerald of Anime World Order!
Haters Gonna Hate WARNING: This is a podcast about griping. Sometimes on things we have gone on the record of saying that are awesome! It happens! Nothing is perfect, not even Giant Ro- Okay ASIDE FROM GIANT ROBO, everything has it’s issues. And we will be talking a lot about those things. Please realize that we also do like many, many things, that you can find in other the OSMcast’s Index of OSMs Past, and AWO’s Review Index.
THERE. DONE. OVER. Now nothing more can be said that hasn’t about the 2000s! We just finished it off! Boo-yah! Well, OK. Perhaps that is not the case. But nevertheless, we should look our eyes upon to THE FUTURE! And the future is the OSMcast will be in TWO count ’em TWO anime cons in June. INSANITY. Those two cons? Why had you read the entry for the previous podcast, you’d know! They are HamaCon (June 4-6, Huntsville, AL) and Seishun-Con (June 25-27, Atlanta, GA). We will be doing a bazillion panels and things there. You should check them out if at all possible!
That’s right! AWO isn’t the only podcast doing a “decade in review” podcast months after everyone else did one! We’ve got one too! Although ours is a little different. Basil, Eric, Kevin, and Rail worked up our each individual Top 10s and then we talk about them in a monolithic almost two hours ironcaged deathmatch of DEATH.
While wearing audio-tuxedos.
Because we’re classy.
Hopefully you have found something you liked! If not, that only means you are already us relistening to ourselves talk. So cut it out, will ya?!
As always, comment, email, voice mail! If anyone wants a full listing, I know that I (Basil) have my list that I can post, and I’m pretty sure so does Kevin, and probably Eric and Rail, too. Or I guess we could listen and jot everything down manually… Nah…
Next time, something from the wacky fun-filled world of OHAYOCON!
It’s a better late than never podcast as the crew at OSM Central takes a crack at our favorite Japanese animated things for the year 2008! The EPIC CONCLUSION of the 2008 OSMawards! Yay!
I’m kinda tapped out of things to say, so we’ll just repeat the contest again and call it a week. Next week’s OSMnotes will be more awesome, I promise!
The rules for this contest are very simple! You just have to talk to us! No matter what, we’ll need an email. You can send us one at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, you could leave us a comment in the comments section below this post. Or call us up on the OSMline at (206) 202-0071. However you do it though, we’ll need an email to contact you. As for the prize, well we are having this conest till the end of February so befor ethen we’ll let you know!
