An even bigger long shot than my request for Cibo Matto for Musicfest but.....
Shinya Arino - Japanese comedian and media personality probably best known these days as the star of GameCenter CX. For a convention such as FanimeCon with the theme for 2018 as gaming, there is no better guest of honor you could hope to have. GameCenter CX is a celebration of Japanese video gaming, gaming culture, classic gaming lifestyle, video game related skits, just everything wonderful about classic gaming and the peak of the Japanese video game industry as a whole. At present, GameCenter CX has run for 14 years and is in the middle of its 21st season.
Holy crap I didn't expect anyone else to want a comedian to come!! It would be freaking awesome with Arino could come!!
I haven't thought that far ahead, but in the same vein of Japanese comedians, perhaps Mr. Yuji Ayabe? Starting this year he left Japan to focus on an acting career in America. He's acted in a few dramas, but Kamen Rider is a big hit when I look him up.
