Ever been to an Anime Con? Whether you went as a fan or a featured voice actor, we want to hear about your experiences.
Yesterday, I was updating our profile on MySpace and noticed that several of our friends are anime voice actors, including Kyle Hebert. Interestingly enough, a couple of weeks ago there was an anime con, Anime USA Convention, and one of my MySpace friends, Crispin Freeman, was mentioned as having attended the conference with several of his colleagues and cast mates.
You can read more from Toon Zone’s account of the Anime USA Convention here. I myself have a vague idea of what these conventions consist of. I understand that fans often come to the conventions and dress up as their favorite characters and celebrity voice actors make appearances throughout the weekend convention.
Come to think of it, I believe there was an Anime (or perhaps, sci-fi) convention going on once when I was in Toronto five years ago in the same building (or thereabouts) as the filming of the Great Canadian Music Dream on the CBC.
I’d like to create some awareness for those of us who are not as familiar with the Anime voice acting art form, but I need your help.
Are any of you Anime voice actors or fans of them?
