OSMinterview! Samantha Inoue-Harte @ MTAC In Love

Play

The Hatmaster. Or Meister. Anime loves Meisters.

We’re not done MTAC in Lovin’ yet, folks! We had a chance to sit down several amazing people during this year MTAC, and we have only just begun releasing those interviews! But out of all of them, Samantha Inoue-Harte might be the most interesting of bunch. At the very least, she has them all beat in just sheer quantities of hats she has worn throughout the years.

We’re talking animator hats, voice over artist hats, producer hats, gore effects person hats, and more but pretty much all around delightful hats. Lately, according to MTAC, “Samantha is a Producer and Partner at Animetropolis, a boutique transmedia studio that develops and produces compelling cross-cultural creative content with partnering Japanese Anime studios. Animetropolis partnered with IDA (International Digital Artists) as production partner and lead animation unit for a Japanese/American co-produced CG-animated feature adaptation of Tailchaser’s Song, the acclaimed best-selling fantasy novel by author Tad Williams.”

She talks about that, and a whole lot more. So much more.

OSMnotes

We want to give a gigantic thanks to both Samantha Inoue-Harte and MTAC for the chance for the interview. And since it was more press conference style, we were’t the only ones there asking the questions! You also heard questions from John and Charlie from the Chainsaw Buffet, as well as Andrew from A Man and His Pod, among others. So big shout outs to them as well. Yes, we gave them shout outs before, and will likely do so again. In, you know, about a week or two.

But what’s next week going to hold? Flamencos. Samurais. Samurai Flamenco.

Another Year, another Easter, another MTAC. Like in years  of the past, we ventured into the Middle Tennessee Anime Convention for their latest year, MTAC In Love. But. were we in love with the con this year?

Well, like any loving relationship, we had our ups, and our downs. There were some missed communications, but at the same time there were moments of bliss. Ultimately though, at the end of the day or con or whatever, we could look into each other’s eyes and see that the fire was still there.

Speaking of loving relationships, we are once again joined at the hip with the Chainsaw Buffet podcast for this episode. We wouldn’t want to have it anyother way. <3

OSMcast! Kami-Con Season 6 2-17-2014

Kami-Con Season 6: Heartless in Wonderland, where the hearts roam free and wild and uh, less?

In our first con report of 2014, we decided to head down to Birmingham, AL to check out Kami-Con‘s sixth year. As it turns out, we had a great time at the con! Sadly, not such a great time in the city. However, you’ll be able to hear all about the good, the bad, and the awesome contained in audio form therein!

We also brought back our “REALLY real real” segments for this conquestable podcast. What are those, you may ask? The “REALLY real real” segments are when we go forth and talk to the con goers  themselves on how they enjoyed  the con and their own person highlights. Sometimes they get their own episode, but this time we decided  to included them  during the breaks.

OSMnotes

And we mentioned it during the podcast, but once again we want to congratulate Ray and Chelsea on their getting married and wish them nothing but the best. We also wish Kami-Con the best  but the  con itself did not get married. That would have been weird.

But you know what aren’t weird? Time Cues!

AWA 2013

So here we are. A podcast about Anime Weekend Atlanta 2013. A podcast about Anime Weekend Atlanta 2013 with Basil and Kevin as well as Charlie and Dylan from the Chainsaw Buffet. A podcast about Anime Weekend Atlanta 2013 with Basil and Kevin as well as Charlie and Dylan from the Chainsaw Buffet where they talk about many things, from the sudden conventions growth, to food trucks, to what they did, panels that we were, lines that were long, fun that was had, some food trucks again, and just how big of a Carl Horn fanboy really is Basil, anyway?

So in other words, it was a podcast about Anime Weekend Atlanta 2013.

OSMnotes

This was recorded on Sunday, edited all night on Monday, and released before we went to sleep. Therefore, no matter when you see this, or what the website may or may not say: We are calling this episode Up On Time. Throwing it up on the board. Claiming victory over defeat. Editing a photoshop file in our favor. This was the time it was ordained to be.

OTAKON 2013 AUGUST 9-10-11, 2013

Con season* is upon us again folks and this time the OSMcast went to one of the biggest anime cons of them all: Otakon! The anime con SO big the city it is in can barely contain it. And so big, the OSMcast alone could not handle it. Well, we probably could but we thought it would be fun to chat about the con with some friends.

And what better friends could we have asked than Daryl and Gerald of the Anime World Order podcast!? True friends, you know the kind that make sure to get their burger orders right, so that nothing terrible can happen.

… As you listen, you may discover that we may not be the best judge of character, at least with THAT criteria! But all that, and more, so much more on this episode of the OSMcast!

OSMnotes

Here is the Otakon 2013 mug. The Chi’s Sweet Home is used for scale.

Sorry for the couple of days hiccup, folks! But things are back on track!

We would once again like to  thank Otakon for their kindness and generosity for letting us cover their convention, and to thank Gerald and Daryl for taking the time to chat with us! Also we’d like to thank Ink for letting us use his picture of Basil before the Yoko Kanno concert! By the way, he did a great write up about the concert for Ani-Gamers that you should check out!

*No not the webcomic GEEZ although it’s pretty cool you should check it out.

MTAC Devil’s Dozen March 29-31, 2013

It’s currently raining like mad out here in Alabama so what better time to curl up, grab a beverage of your choosing, and listen to us as we spin the yarn of MTAC 2013, aka MTAC Devil’s Dozen.

The hopes, the dreams, the tribulations, the successes, and all the rest that this con brought to us, nay, the world. Including, not to the fault of the con, the worst panel we have ever, EVER been to! Listen in as Basil gets angrier than he ever does in life. And he works retail! As per Official OSMcast Guidelines, we are joined at the hip by the Chainsaw Buffet podcast.

OSMnotes

MTAC’s next year is going to full of LOVE so that should prove interesting! Speaking of love, we are planning to release our interview with Nao Yazawa this upcoming Monday. As I think we mentioned during the podcast it was kinda split into two small segments and Basil is currently figuring how to best handle that. And after that, we’ll have a LONG LOST EPISODE brought forth from the year previous year. It’s about the relaunch of Toonami!

Topical. That’s the OSMcast Guarantee!™

MTAC Omega. Another world, another time.

And our first actual episode of 2013! Recorded in 2012! It is the interview we had with some of the wonderful people that run MTAC we recorded on site last year. Sadly the file is the most tsun tsun file we have ever had and as such is mostly unedited.

But the staff we got to talk to are anything but dere as they tell us all sorts of things about last MTAC and this upcoming MTAC.

Which you should totally go to.

To MTAC.

Go to MTAC.

Also Momocon.

AWA 2012

OK so you would THINK we would release the MTAC podcast before the AWA but that would make sense now wouldn’t it? WELL TOO BAD DEARIES. The Habe of My Heart, Dylan  edited  this up so it goes up now! He even posted a description I’m gonna totally steal but then edit so why did I bother who knows:

Basil, Kevin, and Mike from the OSMcast and Hamacon join Charlie, Dylan, and John from the Chainsaw Buffet at Anime Weekend Atlanta in the wee hours of the morning to talk about the con, the experience of the frequent con-goer, running panels, and… a lot of other things. We forget. It was really late, OK?

New episode on Monday! Now I have to commit!

Anime Weekend Atlanta

Anime Weekend Atlanta, September 28th - 30th, 2012

It’s that time again! The OSMcast continues it’s tradition of being a podcast where we cover conventions lately and occasionally some other stuff by going over the latest and greatest Anime Weekend Atlanta. The panels we ran, the panels we went to. The thrills, the parties, the giant robots, it’s all here!

Warning: Our wonder and amazing producer, DJ Inubito, is currently studying for a pretty major certification test, so Basil ended up hacking this episode into shape. Don’t worry though, it will never happen again! For all our sakes.

OSMnotes

You’ll have noticed that the very same Ninja Consultants podcast we mentioned has already released and you can find it at the very post below this one! Also not mentioned, but totally should have, is the fact we got to meet Guy from DEEP Hurting and Jeff from Colony Drop. They are both awesome dudes and if you haven’t checked out DEEP Hurting or Colony Drop yet, you really should! The latest DEEP Hurting is Guy talking with Dave Merrill and Steve Harrison about Lensman and was probably the greatest audio thing to actually have come out of AWA.

Next time on the OSMcast, we finish out our con coverage for the year by talking about GMX in Nashville! Whoo, cons!
