Manga Artists: ANY!! Lol. Actually, recently some overseas fans sent a big birthday album to Yana Toboso (Black Butler/Kuroshitsuji). She liked it so much, she wrote about it in her blog! However, somewhat disturbing, she mentioned that she was surprised there were any overseas fans at all--she didn't even know her work was popular outside of Japan! To quote her exact words when talking about receiving the fan album:
"For the first time I actually realized that even overseas there are people who love my work. I do know that it's been published in other countries as well, but yeah, I suddenly realized that people are actually reading it!"
Anyways, one small hope of mine is that a huge con like Fanime will invite her over, so that she can fully understand just how popular her manga really is over here! ^____^
Ahem, that aside...
I'd also love to see manga artists:
Hatori Bisco <3
As far as VA's go, I'd love to meet Steve Blum!
