I feel Mangaka representation has been pretty low for the past 5 ish cons. Here are some names I’d like to suggest some that I think are reasonable for Otakon to be able to pull (aside from the last 2)

Bukimi Miki - author of SHY currently a break out hit and being published by  Yen Press. 

Takatsu Makoto - author of Season of Alabaster 

Makoto Ojiro - Author of Insomniacs After School and Chion and the Cat Temple. I would LOVE to see her come. 

Kanehito Yamada / Tsukasa Abe - writer and illustrator for Frieren Beyond Journey’s End. 
 

Ran Kuze - author of My Charms Are Wasted on Kuroiwa Medaka

Akihisa Ikeda/Akissa Saike(they changed their name) author of Rosario+vampire and currently working on a new manga Ghost Reaper Girl.

(Pipe dream) Akiko Higashimura - author of Princes Jellyfish and other break out Shojo works

(Pipe Dream) Mizuho Kusanagi - author of Yona of the Dawn.

I am requesting Maison B to be invited to OtaKon this year, as they are an extremely talented Japanese Hip Hop group, produced by legendary rapper KEN THE 390! I think that their performance would really excite Otakon visitors, and the members have expressed that they want to visit overseas to perform! (Plus, a lot of them speak English fairly well) I know inviting guests from Japan can be nigh-impossible due to travel, but I'm still requesting!

I want to request Maison B for OtaKon 23! They're a Japanese Hip Hop group that are in the standard Boy-Group format, and I think they'd be very popular among congoers! Their performances wow audiences in Japan, and the members have expressed interest in performing overseas (As well as most of them speaking English or studying English).

I'd like to see Shocker OH!NO! I didn't even know he did cons and all of a sudden he turned up at Momocon and I missed it.

For those who don't know who he is, he's a former tokusatsu stuntman with scattered voice roles in projects like DD Fist of the North Star and Perfect Blue. He got his stage name from no less a figure than Shotaro Ishinomori. He trains stunt actors, emcees events and is just deeply embedded in Japanese pop culture. I'd compare what he would bring to the con to Takamasa Sakurai.

After speaking with them Project Mouthwash the youtuber said if asked they'd love to attend Otakon. They work on all sorts of Abridged series on youtuber and also do voice acting in some anime.

Been super busy the past year so not much time to idly request items, but I think it's important for people to know who are in demand!

Probably will save this year's list for next year's thread. So far the guest list is shaping up to be quite the production heavy list like last year. Not a bad thing, but weird to have all these Macross guests and no Walkure.

I think Makoto Furukawa would be cool! He is Saitama in OPM. Bands would definitely be One Ok Rock or Asian Kung-fu Generation or of the like. American side, I definitely wpuld love to see Cyyu, Nezzeh Tarsha, Benjamin Balmaceda and Mathew Mercer!

I can thing of so meny!
