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!
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.
In this latest and greatest of the OSMcast, we have yet another OSMinterview! John sat down with the one and only Austin Tindle, a voice-over artist that has been in many a great anime. He was folks like Crowley Eusford (Seraph of the End), Ken Kaneki (Tokyo Ghoul), Marco Bodt (Attack on Titan), Karma Akabane (Assassination Classroom), Avilio Bruno (91 Days), and more! So stay a while and listen~
So there we were at MTAC Omega, and I (Basil) looked at Kevin and said, “OK, we GOTTA interview Richard Epcar. This is a thing that must occur.”
Kevin responded, “Uh, ok! But I have no clue what to say I mean I don’t really follow US voice actors and-”
“Kevin,” I then expertly cut him off, ” Trust me. You’ll understand once we do.”
I then proceeded to drop kick like 15 ninjas then got a sweet hair cut. Man my hair so light and fluffy now!
But the important part of the story was the Sunday of MTAC Omega. I sadly I had to educate the masses via panel form while Kevin got to interview people. We met up afterwards and I asked, “So how did it go?”
“Basil.” Kevin gallantly stated, “We GOTTA interview Richard Epcar again. This is a thing that must occur. That man is amazing.”
Back in June at HamaCon here in Huntsville, AL we got the chance to talk to one of Funimation’s freshest talents, Micah Solusod! He’s probably best known for his work as Soul Eater Evans in Soul Eater. However he has already been in several roles, including stuff from Birdy the Mighty Decode, Big Windup!, and Corpse Princess. He recently has reopened his website which you should totally check out.
Protip: When conducting podcast interviews, do not record them right beside air conditioning units. This is very important!
