BONUS: The Speakeasy #018: Ghostbuster, A Kekkaishi Introduction

Play

This is the stuff!

It’s BONUSPALOOZA! This time, Basil goes to digitally chill with the intrepid, dashing, and always classy Reverse Thieves on their Speakeasy podcast as we talk about Kekkaishi. You know, the greatest and most awesome shonen series you people still aren’t paying attention to! See, we know this, because we talked about this show on the OSMcast waaaaaay back in show #11. That was back in June of 2008 (holy crap we’ve been doing the OSMcast longer than I thought!), before the anime was licensed and only the manga was coming out under people’s noses.

Three years later, it’s been on Hulu, Cartoon Network, and soon to DVD.

NOW IS THE BEST TIME TO HOP ON THE KEKKAISHI TRAIN GUYS.

JUST SAYIN’.

The Reverse Thieves: Fightin' crime and bloggin' about anime and manga.

JUST SAYIN’.

I meant to get this bonus up sooner, but work intervened. And Infamous 2. And the new Zelda 3DS game. And three volumes of Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service. And a volume of  20th Century Boys.

… Maybe I was lazy. (Nah!)

OSMcast: Kekkaishi 6-20-2008

In this episode we decided that box anime is cool. And by “box anime” we mean, “Kekkaishi.” Also, ice cream.

Okay so admittedly I just beat MGS4, so at the moment I’m busy going “OMG MGS4 MGS4!!!!” therefore actual show notes aren’t exactly on my mind. Though I am sad to find out the Wal-Mart sale is apparently already over so… oops. Hopefully those of you out there will have already realized this deal and have bought one!

The rest of you should follow my lead and steal I mean borrow them from all your friends that just obtained those PS3s and play Metal Gear Solid 4 on them. I want to say that this new Metal Gear is good enough that you’ll want to buy a PS3 anyway, but I know that’s just the MGS fanboy in me and that overall the 360 is still
the better gaming system.

… Maybe.

Kekkaishi is also an awesome show and an even more awesome manga. You should go buy all of the manga now. They have 14 volumes so far out so you have plenty to catch up on!

Oh and email us (osmcast@gmailDOTcom), comment, voice mail, let us know you exist, the usual.

Metal Gear!!!
