665 posts in this topic

I saw we have a guest request for the Otakon that just passed, so why not create a new one? Go ahead and state who you want!!

For me, I really want Ellegarden. They are soooo amazing!!

What about you guys??

I know Otakon tries not to repeat guests, but Johnny Yong Bosch + Eyeshine again please!! They were simply wonderful this year! Not only was JYB nice, hilarious, and kept everyone entertained, but Eyeshine sounded amazing and they were also funny and kind. They were also very generous to their fans after the Matsuri performance, staying to give everyone an autograph who wanted one in that heat (and that long line)! They're all very wonderful people, and JYB and his band are some of the best guests Otakon has had so far, IMO. I've never been so happy and entertained!

Bring back Lisa Ortiz and Tom Wayland. They were awesome. :D Especially Lisa, she was so nice and down to Earth.

...But y'all should really try getting:

-Charles Martinet (He is my hero... :D)

-Crush 40

-Ryan Drummond

-Grant Kirkhope

-Dan Green

Please bring back J. Michael Tatum. He's so entertaining and amusing. I adore all of his panels. His story telling is absolutely hilarious. Him and Vic Mignogna are my favorites.

I'd love if Vic Mignogna could come back for 2012 as well. I adore the both of them.

Already? Dang. =/

Anyways, I suppose earlier is better than nothing.

My list has changed, but I still want...

Aya Hirano [seiyuu/Singer] (Probably unlikely, since she's been banned from voice acting. She's probably busy just trying to find a way to get her job back.)

Nana Mizuki [seiyuu/Singer]

Rie Kugimiya [seiyuu/Singer]

Daisuke Ono [seiyuu]

Mutsuhiko Izumi [bEMANI VGM Composer]

Ryutaro Nakahara AKA Ryu☆ [DJ/BEMANI VGM Composer]

Kosuke Saito AKA kors k [DJ/BEMANI VGM Composer]

risette [band]

the pillows [band]

Kalafina [Musical Group] (Unlikely, but you never know...)

ClariS [Musical Duo] (Very unlikely. If Clara & Alice haven't revealed their identities to Japan, then I highly doubt they'd come over here just for us.)

Gen Urobuchi [Author of Madoka Magica]

American

Yuri Lowenthal [VA]

Colleen Clinkenbeard [VA]

Crispin Freeman [VA]

Bryan Lee O'Malley [Author of Scott Pilgrim]

I agree with this, but only if he does Spiderman. Bonus points if someone doing a SUPIDA-MAN cosplay dances on stage.

Anyway, my short list of suggestions for now:

Well, given I'm a fanboy for Stephanie Sheh, I'd love to see her return, but since you all got her two years in a row I understand if you don't want to go for her again.

Outside of that, I'd really like to see:

*Petrea Burchard(US English VA; She seems to have distanced herself from her voicework as Ryoko in Tenchi, but if it's possible at all to get her, I'd love you guys forever)

*Norio Wakamoto (Japanese VA; famous for... A lot of stuff. Seriously, if you're an anime fan who watches subbed anime, you should know this godlike man.)

*Stephen Turnbull (British historian and nonfiction writer who specializes in Japanese history, especially the feudal era. Getting him to come and speak on a Q&A panel on Japanese history would be great, but I can see difficulty in getting him as he is a historian and might see a convention such as Otakon as silly)

*Romi Paku(Japanese VA; famous for her roles as Edward Elric in FMA, Hitsugaya in Bleach, Temari in Naruto and Naruto Shippuden. I mostly know her for her role as Uesugi Kenshin in Sengoku Basara though, lol)

*Kazuya Nakai(Japanese VA; famous for Zoro in One Piece, Mugen in Samurai Champloo, and Date Masamune in Sengoku Basara)

*Reuben Langdon (MOTHER****IN' DANTE AND MASAMUNE, GUYS!)

I also second Colleen Clinkenbeard, Nana Mizuki, and Kyle Hebert as far as VAs go, and I'd love to see either T.M Revolution or ABS as a musical guest.

Why yes, yes I am a Sengoku Basara fan, how'd you notice?

People I'd seriously love to meet (Mostly for Fangirl reasons):

~Kyle Herbert (I admit it, I'm a Richter Abend Fangirl)

~Yuri Lowenthal (My Family friend actually knows him and I've talked to him on the phone once. I'd love to see if he remembers me. Plus I'm also a Pip Bernadotte fangirl.)

~Jerry Jewell (Fruits Basket was the first anime I ever saw.)

~Crispin Freeman (Hellsing in general fangirl, present and accounted for.)

~Colleen Clinkenbeard (Angela from Black Butler, Yuko from XXXholic)

~Greg Ayeres (Trying to collect signatures from the Entire host club)

~Sonny Strait (Drocell from Black Butler. My friend PhantomHoodie and I would jump around like weasels on caffeine doing the happy dance if he came. Seriously. If this happens look for a schoolgirl and the person in my avatar dancing like caffeinated weasels. )

~Kari Wahlgren (Rip from Hellsing. Which brings us Back to the Hellsing fangirl thing. Plus she's Celty from Durarara!! Which I recently got into)

~Daniel Fredrick (Grell from Black Butler. He Would also induce the caffeinated Weasel dance)

I think that's it. If I think of anymore that I just have to meet, I'll add 'em but basically, invite some people from Hellsing, Black Butler and Fruits Basket and I'm happy.

@animefanatic6290 - I know most of the (North American) Voice Artists you've mentioned have appeared at Otakon at least once, except (I think) Eric Vale, Chris Carson, and Kyle Hebert. Though any of the ones you've listed would be nice to have, even if they have appeared before. :)

Second Nana Mizuki since she's both a great seiyuu and singer (check out "Shugo Chara!" for an example of both).

Other Suggestions:

Voice Artists:

Wendee Lee (Faye Valentine from "Cowboy Bebop", Haruhi from "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya", Konata Izumi from "Lucky Star", and Yoruichi, Ururu, and others from "Bleach")

Kari Wahlgren (Kagami from "Lucky Star", Fuu from "Samurai Champloo", Celty from "Durarara")

Karen Strassman (Miyuki from "Lucky Star", Soi Fon and Momo Hinamori from "Bleach", Kallen from "Code Geass")

Laura Bailey (Sana Kurata from "Kodocha", Tohru Honda from "Fruits Basket", Lust from both "Fullmetal Alchemist" series, Serah from "Final Fantasy XIII")

Trina Nishimura (Mari Makinami Illustrious from "Evangelion 2.22: You Can (Not) Advance", Lan Fan from "Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood")

Kate Oxley (Momo Adachi from "Peach Girl", Makie Sasaki from "Negima!")

Sam Riegel (Minoru Shiraishi from "Lucky Star", Flynn from "Tales of Vesperia" (the game at least), Allegretto from "Eternal Sonata", Donatello from "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles")

Eden Riegel (Lady Rurichiyo from "Bleach", Yuna from the "Stitch!" anime, Nanami Ota from the "Iron Man" anime on G4, Hitomi from "Dead or Alive: Dimensions"....She's also Sam Riegel's sister and is a star on "The Young and the Restless".)

Hynden Walch (Starfire from "Teen Titans", Amy Stapleton from "IGPX", Yutaka Kobayakawa from "Lucky Star", Young Nia from "Gurren Lagann", Princess Bubblegum from "Adventure Time")

Brittney Karbowski (Ayu Tsukimiya from "Kanon", Selim Bradley from "Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood")

Troy Baker (Yuri Lowell from "Tales of Vesperia", the second Greed from "Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood", Snow from "Final Fantasy XIII")

...and, if Funimation manages to get the rights to "Sailor Moon" between now and then, as many of the show's new dub's voice artists as possible. (I can dream, can't I?) Since last year had most of the "Hetalia" cast, and this year had the main "K-ON!" cast.

Japanese Seiyuu:

Megumi Hayashibara (Lina Inverse from "Slayers", Faye Valentine from "Cowboy Bebop", and even Hello Kitty herself) (also a legendary singer and can double as a musical guest)

Keiji Fujiwara (Axel and Lea from "Kingdom Hearts" games, Maes Hughes from both "Fullmetal Alchemist" series, Pochi from "Welcome to the Space Show")

Kanae Itou (Amu Hinamori and Dia from "Shugo Chara!", Sanae Nagatsuki from "Squid Girl")

Aki Toyosaki (Su from "Shugo Chara!", Yui Hirasawa from "K-ON!")

Musical Guests:

Joe Hisaishi (music composer of several of Studio Ghibli's films, as well as the related game "Ninokuni")

Buono! (did songs for "Shugo Chara!" but are still singing after the show ended)

Yoko Shimomura (music composer for "Kingdom Hearts" games)

Other Guests:

Aimee Major Steinberger (creator of

I'd really like to see Haruki Murakami show up as a guest. It would be nice to see an author with so much influence in bridging cultures. Not only are most of his works translated into many languages, but he has translated many classic literary works from English to Japanese. I feel he'd be a great fit into a convention boasting the celebration of all facets of Asian pop culture (instead of the usual bulk of voice actors and directors/producers of anime).

That said, I have to say both Johnny Yong Bosch and his band Eyeshine were great this year. The Durarara!! panel was excellent, and I caught a couple Eyeshine songs Thursday afternoon after I picked up my badge. Having JYB and/or Eyeshine return would be great.

But yea, Haruki Murakami! That would be a panel/autograph I definitely would not miss out on!

I'd love to have Buono! or ℃-ute as a guest, or just about any Hello! Project act really (hold off on S/mileage though, maybe in a couple of years). Buono! would be the most ideal, since they have a strong foothold in the anime industry due to almost all of their singles being anime themes. Plus they're my favorite :mellow:

If you need to have an American act, Crush 40 would be amazing.

This is probably close to impossible, but having Shigeru Miyamoto as a guest would make my freaking life. Seriously. On the smaller scale, though, someone like Charles Martinet would whet my Mario appetite plenty.

I'll confirm that we've had Romi Paku on our list for a long time, and twice she had to cancel just before we announced due to work conflicts. She's a busy gal, but she does WANT to come.

And we have a standing request in for Momoru Hosoda the moment he becomes available. I think we've got a better shot than most, but it'll depend on when he's got a convenient break in making awesome stuff...

Here are my guest requests/thoughts:

Creator of Great Teacher Onizuka Tohru Fujisawa

Japanese videogame music composer/director Shoji Meguro

It's also been a while since we've had Canadian Voice Actors/Actresses at Otakon. Where's the Canadian VA love? How about such talented/wonderful Canadian VAs like Kirby Morrow, Kelly Sheridan, Ted Cole, Mark Hildreth, Cathy Weseluck, Lisa Ann Beley, Matt Hill and Sam Vincent. They may not be in as much dubs/series today then say, 5-8 years ago, but their contributions to the anime fandom then/now is still as vital/significant, along with their work in other forms (like live action TV, American cartoons, etc.)

I definitely second Tohru Fujisawa! GTO's my favorite manga, and if he came here ... tears of joy. Tears of joy everywhere.

(Especially if you guys managed to get DJ Ozma/Kishidan as well. Show Ayanocozey/DJ Ozma bears a lot of similarities to the Great Teacher himself...)

I say...for the love of GAWD...invite a certain someone who has never been to an anime con before. Like oh say...GEORGE NEWBERN!!!

Don't know who that is? WHy he is the voice actor of my go-I mean....favorite sexy villian of all time

SEPHIROTH!!!

But besides Sephiroth, he also did Meyvn Nooj in Final Fnatasy X-2, his other espected roles as Sephiroth in the Final Fantasy games and movies, has had alot of maybe minor roles in big time movies, but why not invite Sephiroth!? He's never been before....and I would kill for his autograph <3 <3 <3.

And as the musical guest.....did I hear correct when you guys got AAA to come to OTakon one year!? Blasphemy on you, I love AAA and at the time, had no idea where Otakon was, so I couldn't go. If you could, invite them back pretty please!

But if not that musical act, why not the Japanese rock group 'D'. They were at A-kon this past year, and it was their first time to the States. They were amazed at the response they got at the Friday night concert, and they loved being at the con! How about inviting these first timers back to America once again. I'm sure they'd love it. Getting their autographs was so amazing!...Twice I might add. And hey if A_kon can afford them, i'm sure Otakon can.
