Guests for Fanimecon 2018
« on: May 10, 2017, 08:44:56 PM »

The guests I wanted to see don't seem to be coming this year, so allow me to make my suggestions for next year.

First, Lucky Star star (as well as Saki's Koromo and Heaven's Lost Property's Astraea) Kaori Fukuhara. Next year she'll be appearing in Yutaka Yamamoto's new movie Hakubo, so there's also that. I would've also invited her more famous LS "sister" Emiri Katou, but this year she'll be appearing at Anime Revolution in Vancouver.

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=19431

Second, Marina Inoue, better known as Chiri Kitsu in Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei and SnK's Armin. As excellent a seiyuu and singer as she is, she hasn't gotten nearly enough love at foreign conventions.

And I don't know how easily it can be done, but I wonder if Hidamari Sketch artist and Madoka Magica character designer Ume Aoki would be willing to show herself in public at Fanimecon.

Wow, don't think we've ever had a thread started for the next year before the current year's con was over!

Thank you for all your excellent suggestions, everyone! While it's unfortunately not possible to act upon all suggestions, we do (read: Evan does) keep track of each and every one of them so keep 'em coming!

So TeamFourStar (Takahata101, Grant, Lanipator, Kirran, Hbi2k, Zito, Kaiserneko, Little Kuriboh, Corinne Sudberg), Kira "Rina-chan" Buckland, JAM Project, Sweet ARMS, Yousei Teikoku, FLOW, Todd Haberkorn, Christine Marie Cabanos, Carrie Keranen, Patrick Seitz, SomethingWittyEntertainment, Sarah Williams, Matthew Mercer, Itou Shizuka, and some others.

I made this thread because there probably aren't going to be any more announcements for this year...and partly because I wanted to do it before forgetting, heh. Plus I live in San Diego, so getting to Fanime obviously takes a bit more planning. I chose Fanime rather than Anime Expo mainly because, well, no offense, but the guests I want are a bit lower-profile, and AX obviously tends to go for the biggest acts. Plus it gets sooooo crowded.

I'd also like to repeat my requests for last year; Non Non Biyori stars Kana Asumi, Kotori Koiwai, Ayane Sakura, and Rie Murakawa.

Yeah Fanime is way closer to me than AX is(Fanime is over an hour away, while AX is 6ish hours away). So I always go to Fanime. I've been to AX twice, and while I do like it, it does take a lot to get there, plus AX is more expensive, since concerts and such cost extra where Fanime doesn't charge extra for Musicfest.

I won't be making AX this year, but that's quite alright.

I'm going to make the same suggestion that I made a few years ago:

Lexa Doig has played a hacker (Tekwar), a cryonicist (in Jason X), a starship/robot (Andromeda), and three different medical doctors, one of whom is also a time-traveler and one of whom is an alien. She is the de facto "Queen of the Nerds". I think we should make it official by holding a coronation ceremony in which she is presented with a crown or tiara with the phrase "Queen of the Nerds" inscribed in it. The cost of the headgear could be crowdfunded if necessary.

There's some info about them on the guest page.
Matsushita Yuuya was here a few years ago as a solo artist but this is the first time X4 is coming. I believe Sony blocks their videos outside Japan on YouTube so you'll have to try to find them using either a proxy server or other means. If you use a proxy, this is their official YouTube channel.

(I also recommend you post questions in a different thread since this is a thread for guest suggestions. :) )

Music Fest falls under "Big Event Showcase." The (suggestion) thread is here. You can also create your own threads as necessary.
