OSMinterview! Melissa Sternenberg on 8/21/2023

So previously we Aimed for the Top with interviewing the voice of Noriko, but this time we are interviewing the voice of Kazumi Amano in Gunbuster: Melissa Sternenberg! Where she outs herself as a huge nerd. Which is good, because this is kind of the podcast for that sort of thing. We chat about LARPing, Freakazoid, Animaniacs, 90s anime, all sorts of things. Like, what makes a great dub? Also, a great dub: Gunbuster. And as one would expect, the critically acclaimed MMPRPG Final Fantasy XIV.

The Carbuncle Chronicle Issue 16: The 2023 NA FFXIV FanFest in Las Vegas

Hello Adventurers! So in our previous episode we talked about the big announcement from the 2023 NA FFXIV FanFest in Las Vegas: The latest FFXIV expansion, Dawntrail. But this episode is about everything else that happened at FanFest! The highs, the lows, the events, the lines. All the fun parts, and some of the not so fun parts. The terrible, terrible heat. Speaking of things that are hot off the presses, we also talk about The Rising and the latest Moogle Tomestone events. It’s a grand ole time!

Spoiler LevelsPretty Low! Since we already talked about Dawntrail, we kept the spoiler talk to as low as we could. This is about the event of FanFest itself. I guess if you don’t want spoilers as to what might happen at the EU & JP FanFest? But honestly, they are gonna be pretty different anyway.

The Carbuncle Chronicle Issue 15: 7.0 Announced!! Dawntrail!

Hello Adventurers! Everyone it’s been 10 long years, but we have finally done it. We’re going to The New World, Tural! And while a few of us did just get back from the 2023 NA FanFest in Las Vegas a couple of weeks back, even now only the thoughts of new level caps, two dyes, and taco cats arw what keep us going. And, or some of us, the thoughts of wearing glasses and a summoner’s horn at the same time. All of that is to say, we are very excited about the new Final Fanatsy XIV 7.0 Expansion: Dawntrail! So here is us talking all about it.

Spoiler Levels: Extremely High! This episode is meant for those that have finished 6.0 Endwalker and are ready for what comes next.

The Carbuncle Chronicle Issue 14: FanFest Hype! & 7.0 Predictions

Hello Adventurers! Saddle up your chocobos folks, because we are heading to Las Vegas! Some of us figuratively, some of us literally. This upcoming weekend (July 28 & 29th, 2023) is the first of the set of the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festivals. Which means fun is to be had, Keynotes and Live Letters to watch, and a new expansion to be announced! So, Basil, Anna, and special guest Tobias from Third Impact Anime and A Grand Line Reborn got together to talk about what one can expect to do at FanFest, what to see, and then get into all the ideas we have they could announce for 7.0. 

Spoiler Levels: Highish! Look, you are best served by playing through 6.45 since we are talking about everything that could possibly happen after that. You’ll want those context clues intact. We are somewhat vague on details about what’s been happening, but I wouldn’t trust us either. Don’t worry, this episode will still be here when you’re done.

If you can’t make to FanFest in person (we really, really lucked out in being able to go), worry not! They are streaming almost all the most important parts as they happen. Here are the links you’ll need.

OSMinterview! Kaitlyn Robrock on 6/17/2023

There are times when getting these interviews from John can be kinda wild. For example, just the other day he messages me, and the message went something like this:

“Hey, I just interviewed the voice of Minnie Mouse.”

Which is not something one normally hears! But today you get to listen to that interview. Which is with the wonderful Kaitlyn Robrock. Who is the current voice of Minnie Mouse from well… Disney. But that’s not all! She’s also the voice of Retsuko’s mother in the English dub of Netflix anime series Aggretsuko, Felicia Sundew in Amphibia, and also the voice of Chloé in both Fire Emblem Engage as well as Fire Emblem Heroes. So, kick back and enjoy.

OSMinterview! Kiane Chula King on 5/15/2023

I dunno if you have heard, but there is a brand-new Blu-ray release of Gunbuster from Discotek. It’s out there! It’s great! And one of the great things about it, is that it features an excellent all new English dub. And the lead Noriko was portrayed as Kiane Chula King. Who, coincidentally, is also the subject of this OSMinterview! While Noriko may be one of her first big roles, it was really nice to dig in a little to find out more about her. And while I am not John, I also want a whole new interview with her all about her experiences in tabletop roleplaying. That would be, as they say, awesome. Or well… OSM.

OSMinterview! Amanda Miller Q&A Panel @ MTAC Blackjack

So, this is something new! Your friend and mine, John Robbins normally does a lot of our OSMinterviews. But this time, he got to instead moderate a Question-and-Answer panel for Amanda Miller at this year’s MTAC Blackjack. This is the audio from that panel. And chances are, you have heard the voice of Amanda Miller before! Some of her most well-known roles include Sailor Jupiter, in the Viz Media re-dub of the classic Sailor Moon series and the new Sailor Moon Crystal series, Junko Enoshima and Toko Fukawa in the Danganronpa video game series, Sully and Cherche in Fire Emblem Awakening, Takeru Aizawa in Squid Girl, and Boruto Uzumaki in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. And because this was a general con Q&A panel, she gets all sorts of questions. All. Sorts. Enjoy!

OSMinterview! Marin M. Miller @ MTAC Blackjack

At MTAC Blackjack we got the chance to chat with voice actor and ADR director Marin M. Miller.

The real Easter Miracle that was performed at MTAC this year was that we were able to land a last-minute chance to chat with Marin M. Miller! We’ve had them on the show a few times, but it’s always good to catch up. They have only grown yet even more prestigious since those bygone days, for example now being the voice of Nimbus in Destiny 2: Lightfall! That said, this interview is more than about that. But we do get to that. It’s a real journey, and one you should listen to.

OSMinterview! Kyle McCarley @ MTAC Blackjack

So, like all good weebs, we spent this past Easter celebrating by going to an anime con. MTAC Blackjack, specifically. And while we were there, we got the chance to chat with some cool voice over artists! This episode is a chat we got to have with one Kyle McCarley. He’s probably best known for his roles like being Mob in Mob Psycho 100, 9S in Nier: Automata, Alm in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, Gatekeeper in Fire Emblem: Three Houses, amongst many others. He’s also the host of The Board & Barrel, which is a really fun weekly live board gaming show on Twitch. Joining us on this interview were the wonderful fellas over at The Side Quest Podcast.

OSMinterview! Mark Hildreth on 3/09/2023

Oh hello there! Our boy John is back with yet another OSMinterview, this time with the excellent Mark Hildreth. Mark has been acting, both voice acting as well as theatre and forms of live action acting, since the age of 10! His career is incredibly prolific, but you may know him best from such roles as Heero Yuy from Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, Terry Bogard from the various Fatal Fury anime productions, Sten from Dragon Age: Origins, and that’s just a few among many others.
