It has finally come to pass. After all the years of idle chatter, we have finally sat down to interview the man, the myth, the LEGEND~! that is Mike Reynolds. For decades, Mike’s voiced tons of “old man” characters in anime as well as done work for Power Rangers, VR Troopers, and the like. If you don’t know who he is, The Internet’s Mike Toole put together this tribute video last year:
If you don’t know who Richard Epcar is, he’s also a voice actor/director probably best known for his work on Ghost in the Shell as Batou. We interviewed him about five years ago here, shortly after the release of Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe where he played The Joker. He’s most recently heard as The Joker in the just-released Injustice: Gods Among Us.
Meanwhile, the latest issue of Otaku USA magazine is out, featuring Daryl’s feature coverage of both Michiko and Hatchin as well as the new Studio Ghibli movie, From Up on Poppy Hill. As a supplement to the latter feature, over on the Otaku USA website Daryl’s written up a review of the Studio Ghibli film I Can Hear the Sea. It may be a favorite of Brian Camp and Gilles Poitras, but NOT HIM. Expect a supplemental retrospective on Samurai Champloo and an alternate take on Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance in…uh…the coming weeks.
