The guests I wanted this year couldn't make it, so I'd like to reiterate my previous suggestions for Kato*Fuku (Emiri Kato and Kaori Fukuhara) and the girls of Non Non Biyori (Kana Asumi, Rie Murakawa, Ayame Sakura, and Kotori Koiwai), and also add Michelle Ruff (dubber for Tsukasa in Lucky Star) and Kari Wahlgren (dubber of Kagami)....and Marina Inoue.

Is there someone you have to send a letter to to make your guest request "official"? I was talking with a guy named Milton Le who said he would pass my request to the suggestion team.

Any request made here is "official". I look at and track every request and do my due diligence to determine the requirements of acquiring such a guest.

Milton's a good guy to talk to. He's part of the communications department. Honestly, the guest relations staff check threads like these every year for suggestions, so you just have to post here to make it "official." The earlier you request, the better chance they have time to entertain that request. Most people wait until a month before the con starts, and by then, it's much much too late.

To summarize, you're in the right place at the right time. If you really want to know the exact people who are in charge of guest relations, that's Jinni for general guests, and Valerie for music fest guests. These people might change to someone else for 2017, however.

To piggy-back on what Evan wrote, I also look at every single request that we receive for MusicFest guests! Even though I may not reply, please rest-assured that we do read all suggestions.
