WELP. This has sure been a thing. You see, the OSMcast has always been a “folks in person in front of a microphone” kind of podcast. With world events being what they are, that wasn’t gonna fly anymore. So we decided to try something new. Recording via the Internet. Which is very exciting!
So, we tested our recording with asking, receiving, and now answering questions from Listeners Like You! As well as some Moments of OSM. Hope you all enjoy!
We also want to give big props to our wondrous comrades in arms, Third Impact Anime! Not only are they an awesome podcast and blog in their own right, but they also host an outstanding Discord! Which everyone should join and talk anime and video games and other things with us. Also whenever Denpa puts out a book, just buy it!
And as always, after the OSMnotes, are some Time Cues:
We start the OSMcast!ing – 0:00
General Gabbing – 0:35
Moments of OSM – 3:06
Animal Crossing: New Horizons – 3:16
Behind the Curve; You Are Not So Smart – 9:42
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;surrection – 15:48
Mobile Suit Gundam Wing / Not so Mobile Suit Gundam Tiger King – 17:30
Oh, hello there! Fancy world we live in now. It’s sure has had a lot of ups and downs lately! And what better way to make your way through it all, than to watch Ride Your Wave, by Science Saru, directed by Masaaki Yuasa? There isn’t, so thankfully we have a podcast for you all about it! Also… other things.
So yea! Of course, you can always hit up GKIDS Films’ website for potential future theater viewings, although really you may be best off waiting for the home release. But until then, Time Cues~
Hey folks today is Super Tuesday so if you are reading this today and you are in a state that’s doing that whole voting thing then please GO VOTE! And while you are waiting in line at the polls, we have an episode for you to listen to! Recorded at Seishun Con 2020, we kick back with the Tennessee Crew and talk about, well… all sorts of things.
And here are some of those things! Also known as Time Cues:
Boy, this episode sure went places, didn’t it? Also please go vote. And our hearts and thoughts are out for all our Tennessee peoples who go caught in the terrible tornadoes that just hit the state today. If you can help at all, we have heard that The Community Foundation is a great place to donate to.
So this past few weekends ago, Seishun Con happened. And it was fun! One of the fun things was yet another attempt at an OSMcast LIVE! show. This time, we planned on doing a podcast about Crusher Joe with our pals over at Akihabara Renditions. Only… Funny thing! Communication failed, and half of us did not watch Crusher Joe in time for this panel. So, this is the audio you get instead.
Next time, a slightly more planned episode recorded at Seishun Con, along with our Tennessee compatriots.
Whoa what’s this craziness this is not the normal OSMcast?!? Nope this is a whole new OSMcast-produced thing, we’re calling Touched by a Duelist! It’s a new weekly, show where we are covering the anime series Touched and Yu-Gi-Oh!
Touch being the baseball anime, based on the manga by Mitsuru Adachi, and Yu-Gi-Oh! being the card battling anime, based on the manga by Kazuki Takahashi.
This episode we are covering the Touch episode 1, “No matter what everybody says, we’re twins!!” And the Yu–Gi-Oh! episode 1, The Fearsome Blue-Eyes White Dragon.
Accidentally continuing on a spooky-ish track*, we are gathered tonight to release a podcast about demons! And slayers! Of, well, demons! It’s an anime and manga called Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. The manga is by Koyoharu Gotouge, with the anime adaption by Ufotable.
*Clearly you can tell by how echo-y it is. Because it’s spooky, not because it was much a more open room this time or anything…
As of this recording, the anime is out there streaming courtesy of Aniplex. So you can find it on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu. The manga is released by Viz, and they can be bought via volumes either physically or digitally. Or, you can stream the volumes on your electronic device via their Shonen Jump Plus app. But while you are buffering, have some Time Cues:
Feeling up for something s̵̹̲̒͝p̸̥̔͂o̶̫̩͂o̸̦͋̓k̴͖̝̋̀y̷̘͌̿? Well we have the podcast for you! In the last of our Hamacon 10 podcasts, here is another OSMquest guest starring the Master of Decreepitude himself, Mr Creepy Pasta! Or is it MrCreepyPasta? Or Ḿ̷̻̳͉̞͑͝͝r̸̢͕̫̃̓̏C̴̘̀r̸̺͌̽̔e̴̤̎̍̀̎e̷͓͑̃̍p̴̝̟̽͜͝ý̶͖̬͖́́͜P̴̢͍̺̈́̾a̵̭͓̪̤̓̀š̵̖ṭ̸̄́̃a̵̯͎͌? Either way, we RPGed it up with him! Creepily.
Oh no, a cliffhanger?!? Sadly. sometimes you can’t always get a full game into an interview slot. But what can you do? Invite the OSMcast and Mr Creepypasta to your next con! I dunno about the Creepmeister, but the OSMcast comes pretty cheap.
The name of the game is The Beast, made by Grant Howitt. It is a game where you are monster hunter hunting the monsters. Somewhere in Eastern Europe, because that’s where all the best monsters are. You can ask anyone, they will tell you this. Speaking of things you can do, you can find all of Grant’s wonderful games at https://gshowitt.itch.io/.
Sometimes, you get interviews at a con. But sometimes, you get them straight from the source. You get some of that good stuff. Fresh, uncut, farm to table, pure internet kind of interview. For this episode, our wonderful master interviewer John sat down with the amazing Dorothy Fahn.
Lately, you may have heard her as the voice of Mercedes in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. But she has lent her voice to many characters, like Meryl Stryfe in Trigun, or Melody from the latest take of Hunter x Hunter. Or perhaps, all the Digimon? She’s been a few (Lalamon, Sunflowmon, Lilamon, and Rosemon)!
We wanted to thank Dorothy for her time with us. It was our pleasure and we hope everyone enjoyed listening!
Hello out there! So, today turns out to be Hashtag International Podcast Day, and so we have a podcast for you! To be all… International with. During your uh… Day.
So in this episode we got to interview Sequya, aka Rainbow Redwood, one of Hamacon’s Cosplay Guests.
Here, have some more info about Sequya, courtesy of the Hamacon wesbite! Rainbow Redwood is an award winning cosplayer, YouTube content creator, and seamstress. At the age of 14 she taught herself how to use a sewing machine and has never stopped learning since then. Her love for theater, dance, and historical clothing naturally lead her to perusing cosplay. At conventions when she’s not completing in craftsmanship cosplay contests she enjoys being a co-captain of Hamacon Idols*, hosting panels, teaching dance workshops (KPOP and Love Live), and judging cosplay contests.
OK, so what do you do when you have some of your favorite people to interview. In this case, Micah Solusod and Ayu Sakata. Only, you have interviewed them. Several times. In fact, last time they decided to interview you, instead. So now what do you do?
Apparently, the answer is you play a tabletop RPG with them! So that’s what we did.
The name of the game is Honey Heist, made by Grant Howitt. It is a game where you are bear. You do crimes. We, as bears, did crimes. So many crimes. Micah was new to this, but you can’t tell. You can find all of Grant’s wonderful games at https://gshowitt.itch.io/.
