That's right ladies and gentlemen, the Otakuboards podcast is coming to you! Boo and I have been planning this for quite some time, and after working the kinks out with recording the podcast, the first episode is coming to you!

The show will be about roughly 30 minutes and we're hoping that it'll have enough content to keep you guys satisfied while still remaining on the short side. To keep things relevant with Otakuboards, Boo and I will be selecting a few topics we want to highlight from across the forums and hopefully generate some more discussion in the threads themselves (adding our own little flair, of course =] ).

I know what you're thinking. "Korey how can [i][b]I[/b][/i] get involved with the podcast?". Well, it's actually rather simple and encouraged! We'll be taking user submitted questions every week and answer them. Almost no question is too taboo (but try to keep it within site rules, we want to be a PG-13 podcast) and we will select only the best questions, so cook up some good ones for us! <img src='http://www.otakuboards.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

Also, if you want to be a guest on the podcast in the future, you'll have to either PM Boo or myself and let us know. We require that you have Skype and we will try to make a time that works for everyone.

So yeah! The first EP should be out by next week. We're aiming for Sunday evening. I'll update the thread when the podcast is up.

Be on the lookout, OBers. [/font] Edited by AvalonAngel

Whee! Is it lame if I'm all excited myself? Also, if there's topics you really want to be on the podcast feel free to throw them in here or PM them to either of us. This includes you wanting us to plug your RP or whatever cool new topic you made up lately.

Sell it well though, because we're selective, elitist meanies. Well, I am. Korey is a sweatheart.

FUN FUN

Also, I think it would be cool if tons of people would be like "Hey this is [...] and you're listening to the OtakuBoards Podcast!" "Meh, meh, meh, OtakuBoards Podcast!" "PIKA PIKA CHIBICHU!" Y'know. There's enough space to give plenty of people 10 seconds of audio fame.

AND IF YOU HAVE A TALENT THAT INCLUDES SOUND, this is an ideal opportunity to get yourself heard globally!.. sort of. Edited by Lady Shy

"I'm Dutch and I study... errm... stuff...."

It was quite entertaining, though my internet connection didn't help me out. That being said I don't have anything else to say because I don't really listen to Podcasts. Actually, this is the first one I've heard.

PS: Why Mr. Boo, I didn't know you had such a sexy voice. I'd like to see Korey try your accent ;p.

Impressive work guys!

I think that last topic was kinda dull though... who cares about some loser who probably gets half his profile views from checking his own comments! Its pathetic really.

[font="Palatino Linotype"]Wow, really great stuff guys. I'm really impressed by your work. Your editing was great and you covered some fun topics; it's funny how this podcast feels much more OB-like than anything we've had before.

In terms of suggestions for your next episode, here are a few (sorry, Boo):

[list]
[*]Korey's voice seemed a bit muffled compared to Boo. You're probably aware of this and there probably isn't much you can do, though. But I could definitely hear you both well enough.
[*]I really like the background music - nice touch. I would consider turning it down a tiny bit, relative to your voices (mostly due to that slightly muffled effect). I really like the way you used the music for intro/outro and Chibi's report.
[*]Um...that's it really.
[/list]

You covered quite a few topics and kept a really good pace. Putting Chibi in the middle was a great move - it kept things varied and refreshing.

Because OB is slower these days, I know it must be hard to talk entirely about new OB topics, but I think you did a great job of balancing general chat with actual OB-related stuff. I like that you took a topic and turned it into a news piece/discussion.

So, yeah...I don't have much else to say really. All three of you did a briliant job and I really hope that you'll keep treating us to your podcasts in the future. :) I think you will soon be giving our other podcast celebrities a run for their money. ;)[/font]

"Trying to contain myself from laughing"

Okay, see 1st of all [strike](goes into the song)[/strike], chibi (gremlin? seriously? Are we going to start calling you Gizmo now?) you sound like someone from one of them cartoons.

Boo, if I didn't know any better I would think you were one of the folks behind DBZ Abridged.

[media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ys7pLfOVZDE[/media]

Goz or Mez, you sound like you can pull off either one of them. (No offense)

"Let's talk about CaNz"
"Noooo"

ROTFLMAO!!!

"Send all of your critisms to Korey"

That's funny.

That's good stuff. Edited by Phenom

Gizmo, huh. I dunno... I seem to be collecting a lot of nicknames. XD Is the cartoon voice good or bad?

I'm glad everyone's favourite part of the podcast is my messed up accent. :V I blame Korey's being in Germany for that. "I'm ze moderatur for ze artz stoodio"

But I'm glad it's being enjoyed! (James, you're right the music's still too loud after down tuning it a bit) *high fives Korey*

It's not bad but more unexpected.

Boo is such a talented impressionist. His Des voice is funny, but I also enjoyed his brief AnimeArchAngel impression, haha. Excellent work.

An enjoyable first episode all around, particularly since Boo and Korey have solid chemistry right from the start. That's half the battle!

EDIT: Oh yeah, and I'd totally be down for recording a bumper and maybe being a future podcast guest. Would be pretty fun. Where should I direct my shameless shilling after I record it? Edited by Shinmaru

[FONT=Calibri]Rant.


'Cheebee'? '[i]CHEEBEE[/i]'[i]??? [/i]Augh! Is there some weird disease afflicting everyone where we pronounce everything in the weirdest fracking way possible? Good gosh. I don't know anyone who uses the Japanese pronunciation of anime ('ah-nee-may'; we say 'É?-nÉ?h-may' because we're lazy), but we can't get a bloody short-I off our tongues. Pleh.


End rant.[/FONT]

I was really surprised by Chibi's voice. Oo I expected it sound hyper-like, but you ended up sounding like a grown-up. Oo

I think my little sis sounded adorable. she definitely got the radio personality timing though. it sounded perfectly rehearsed.

(p.s. Allamorph, your rants never truly end, it can only be transformed from one state to another.)

I wasn't saying it was bad. I liked her voice. And she sounds like someone who could have a good job as a radio dj...I think that is what they are called. >>;

[font="Palatino Linotype"]I think Chibi could easily be a voice actor.

And Boo's accent (as well as what he actually talks about) provides all-important comedy relief. ;)

This is why I'm glad I am not doing the show. If Boo's accent provides comedy relief, mine would provide...I don't know what. Crocodile Hunter flashbacks or something.

[color="#9932CC"][font="Microsoft Sans Serif"]Few minor nitpicks that maybe you can iron out for future podcasts;

[list]
[*]Korey was muffled, kinda difficult to hear.
[*] The music was a little overpowering. Don't get rid of it, it adds a definite atmosphere, but maybe quiet it down next time.
[/list]

And that's about it, complaint-wise.

As for Chibi's voice, all I could think of was "HOLY CRAP, IT'S [URL=http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=29271][U]CAITLIN GLASS[/U][/URL]! Seriously Chibs, you sound so much like her. It's kinda scary, actually. [The Pokemon Center jingle before her segment was awesome, too. <3]

And bah, I'm a proud non-member of the Desbreko fanclub. Put that in your textbox and type it. :whatever:

"Let's talk about CaNz!" "NOOO" *snerk*

Great first podcast, guys! You guys make a really good team! I snickered quite a bit, especially at Boo's impression of Des. XD[/font][/color]
