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:
So this episode is more of a KEVINcast, really. But that’s OK, because we are talking about one of his favorite shows from last year! And that show is the revival of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, developed by Noelle Stevenson and produced by DreamWorks Animation Television and Netflix.
But don’t worry, we have some manga talk, video game chatter, and even about how good dogs! Spoiler alert, dogs are very good.
So, back in 2012 (?!), Basil once told Kevin that he really needed to go to an interview with Richard Epcar. And Kevin did, and a wonderful time was had. Well, John was also there in 2012. And since he had the chance to interview Richard Epcar again, John leapt at the chance. That was at Momocon 2018, and this is that podcast.
Also in case you were wondering whom Richard Epcar is, he’s a lot. Of voices, I mean. He has done a bunch of them! Lately you’d recognize his vocal talents bringing to life Ansem, from the Kingdom Hearts series. There was like, three of those game? So anyway, he has also voiced Raiden from the latest Mortal Kombat series of games, Joseph Joestar from the Jojo’s that everyone (rightly) loves, Batou in all the Ghosts in the Shells that matter, and just whole lot of things. There is a very high chance that he done something you love, and he may just be the reason why!
Sometimes, you just gotta keep talking about cartoons. When we last left Rebecca Sugar’s and Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe, there was one season. Now… there is the rest of the show, made up of multiple seasons! So we decided to catch up and talk about our favorite moments from the show, and more.
So wow, that was a show! And now we can only wait for the movie. You know, the Steven Universe one. There will be no OSMcast movie. There are however, Time Cues:
Both Yuri and Tara are super prolific Voice-Over Artists. Yuri has been in things like Code Geass, Gurren Lagann, Dead or Alive, Naruto, Personas both 3 AND 4, and most recently he was the voice of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the new Spider-Manvideo game by Insomniac.
Tara was also in both Persona 3 and Naruto, along with a bevy of those things! She has been new dub of Sailor Moon, Aggretsuko, Fire Emblem: Awakening, League of Legends, and was also the voice of Yuri Watanabe in, you guessed it, Insomniac’s Spider-Man.
2018 was a year. A year were things happened.Mostly terrible, but there was some stuff hiding around, poking about. At the very least, fifteen things. Well, actually sure there were a bunch of things that were awesome about 2018! But we decided to pick out fifteen of them to podcast about. Here’s our Top 15 in 2018 OSMawards!
Man, of course, once we stopped recording, I think we came up with at least another fifteen things that were awesome in 2018? But, too bad us! We made our list! Now here is that list again, in Time Cues form:

OK so maybe it’s no longer the spookytimes right now. Right now, it’s all New Year, New You, New Year’s Resolutions, and all that kind of stuff times. Well how about a new OSMinterview? Let’s go back in time, back when it would be all spooky and stuff! Because what we have here, is an interview with YouTube’s own Mr. Creepy Pasta!
He reads stories. That are creepy. They may, or may not, have pasta in them.
Welcome to 2019, everybody! We are just so glad you could make it. In honor of such an auspicious occasion, we have an episode we recorded back in November of 2018! It’s actually a whole new format! Kinda. Since our uh, “acquisition” of the Chainsaw Buffet Podcast a short while ago, I have these amazing guys on occasion to gab with. So we decided that whenever we can pin them down (usually at cons), we will! And we did. So here is an episode with mostly the TN Crew! It’s all very exciting.
Time Cues? Time Cues!

Hello world! The OSMcast is back yet again with questions and answers, but we’re asking the questions here this time! That’s our deal! Well, we struck a dark bargain with Erika Harlacher, at any rate. What was that dark, terrible bargain? That we could ask her questions, and she would give us answers! All in all, it was a pretty sweet deal.
Now, you may wonder whom this Erika Harlacher is. Do not fret, for we shall tell you! She is an amazing voice actress, that has done many a cool Japanese animation. Things like oh I dunno… Violet Evergarden in Violet Evergarden? Or perhaps Jeanne d’Arc (Ruler) in Fate/Apocrypha would be more your speed. Netflix folks (aka everyone) would recognize her from her role of Elizabeth Liones in The Seven Deadly Sins? I particularly enjoyed her work as Kurapika in Hunter x Hunter!
But let’s face facts, I’m sure everyone really recognizes her as Ann Takamaki in the smash hit video software known as Persona 5. And that is perfectly fine.
So back in the far flung past (last month or so*) we solicited questions from the people. Mostly on Twitter. Also via spamming Third Impact Anime’s Facebook Community. These are those questions. And our answers! In December. Look, time is an illusion, we all know this.
*Pretty sure the idea was to record in October, then release in November? But now it’s December. Hi December!
Thanks everyone for sending in questions! Some, we’ll have to come back to you all on them. As some are really whole episode topics in their own right (Looking at you, Top Ten Anime Betrayals)! But until next time, have some Time Cues:
