Hmm... Having Hayashibara Megumi back (I still remember her from '99) would be kinda cool.

I also wouldn't mind seeing more J-Rock. (Not sure if this is reasonable or not, but...) Moi dix Mois springs to mind.

And also, Gackt...

Okay so that last one is a bit of a stretch...

As far as artists or writers go, Obata Takeshi (Death Note and Hikaru no Go) and maybe Ken Akamatsu. That would be pretty cool.

Gackt would be cool.   Id die and go to heaven if that happened.  He does own a place down in Los Angeles so its not quite as large a stretch as some others but yeah...  I have seen clips of him goofing off around LA and popping into KROQ down there.  So Ill keep my fingers crossed with ya.

Being the Panels Ninja Ill try to work on getting Sean back for that panel.  I know a few people in the game industry from several companies.  Would there be an interest in more Video Game Industry releated panels?  We are getting running early on stuff so if people really want that start up a post over in the Panels section.  Particularly for Square-Enix, those guys are a tid bit hard to get ahold of.

Go to AX, strategically cover them and surround them with fanime advertisements. pray they come. XD

I'd like to see more guests in general, but specifically, the people I'd truly love to see are all well beyond our current reach.

The fact that they are going to AX is something of a hell froze over kind of thing to begin with.  

My list of "If we get any of them I would die happy" guests would be:

Music:
-Gackt
-Janne Da Arc
-ZZ
-Orange Range

Artists:
-Oh Great!
-Ken Akamatsu
-Tite Kubo
-Koge Donbo
-Kouta Hirano
-Yashiro Nightow

I'd like to see mothercoat and swinging popsicle make a return as well as zz.

I really wish we had a larger webcomic presence at fanime. Seems like fanime isn't friendly towards webcomic artists (or so I heard) Snafu-Dave was an awesome guest and I think he ended up doing 4 panels in total. I'd love for fanime to bring over Bleedman as his art is awesome. Can we somehow get Megatokyo back here to fanime? PLEASE?!? Ian from machall is now in the bay, can we bring him as well?

Post by: Eurobeat King on May 30, 2006, 04:03:14 PM
It would be nice to see some Eurobeat artists perform in-concert, like:

Dave Rodgers
Domino
Niko "Night of Fire"
Franz Tornado and the Bazooka Girls  (various ParaPara songs)

even MOVE for the Initial D fans would be cool!  8)

the REAL reason why we need amano at fanime. <3 (http://video.tinypic.com/player.php?v=zm06mp)

i mean, imagine if you walked into music fest, and you saw *that* level of insanity. <3

hmm.. smoking has really taken a toll on her voice. ._. her live performances are usually better than that one~~

As I said in a older post, id love to ask the Snafu guys back.  Dave and his crew were great.  Again, I took the suggestions back in the panel one on webcomics to heart and will work on it.  =}

It's doable, but we'd like to expand our horizons and give other bands a chance to showcase their stuff. Afterall, if we just brought back camino and ZZ this year, you wouldn't have seen mothercoat or Swinging Popsicle!

Fred Gallagher expressed his disinterest in attending further west coast conventions. He reassured us that he will only attend the cons on the east coast after having to shuffle his things across the country. Can't say I blame him.

oh yeah, big stretch , you have to go through like 9823465091823465902786 people to get to him XD
i talked to the girl at the jpophouse booth and she said that would probably never happen.
even if he does own a place in LA all he does in America is Dear concerts (>.> Damn them all... XD)
personally i don't think he would cause he wouldn't be able to have a big enough concert =/ (ever see his lives? XD)

One thing to note, Gackt does pretty much whatever he wants.  If something strikes his fancy, he will do it regardless of what is involved.  As far as production, I have seen bits of some of his non broadcast shows and his Asia gigs.  He, like most big production acts, has a scaled down stage for different venues.  Even within japan, not all venues are the Tokyo Dome.  Its actually more likely that if he ever did something up here it would actually be a smaller show like his Dears shows.  

I still really vote for Janne Da Arc.  They put on an electrifying show and have kick butt music.

Tamura Yukari (If not Nanoha [Nanoha], then Talim [Soul Calibur])
Mizuki Nana (Where's the love? Fate [Nanoha], Hinata [Naruto])
Shimizu Ai (Karen [Onegai Twins], Mikoto [Mai-Hime], Ren [DearS])

Please. No Naoki. We don't need to hear letternumberletter again. (I'd go to MusicFest for Red Zone, however -- SAY SPEED RAVE)

We need Tatsh, however. :D (And not just for Xepher, mind you. I personally think Sphere's a better song, because most of my adrenaline from Xepher comes from its corresponding video.)

Let's see...well.

I'd like that guy who did the Storytelling for Animation panel to come back and do more panels on that sort of stuff (I think that was the Sean that was mentioned earlier who did the Eva panel, but I could be wrong).  His panel was really awesome.

Manga:
Ken Akamatsu (sp?)
Yu Watase (Alice 19th, Ceres, etc.)
Whoever does Naruto (books aren't in front of me...sorry :S)

Music:
Any artists from the Initial D sountracks.  I love that music.
Two Mix

Other:
Yamaga has to come back, period.
Anyone from Gundam (any of the series)

Sorry, I don't have a lot of names cause I'm not quite as rehearsed in Anime as everyone else :S.  I would just like to see more people talking about manga though, like getting into the business, etc etc etc.

Now I'm not sure where you heard this from, but I'd love to know the source and which "staff" you're talking about. Considering that Mari was my guest at the time, I still have a vested interest, as Guest Relations always strives to make FanimeCon's guests happy while visiting with us.

Don't hold your breath waiting for Mari to return to Fanime. She was treated rudely by the staff of Fanime '02 and left the convention in a cloud of dust.


Now I'm not sure where you heard this from, but I'd love to know the source and which "staff" you're talking about. Considering that Mari was my guest at the time, I still have a vested interest, as Guest Relations always strives to make FanimeCon's guests happy while visiting with us.


The Saturday concert was cancelled. I went to the info desk and the guy running the department and his second both told me Mari had left the convention. She was upset that Friday's concert didn't receive much publicity, as only a sparse crowd had shown up. She was also upset the equipment wasn't set up on time. There were others issues, but I can't remember.

Any more specifics?  Having not heard of this myself first hand, the details you list are grounds to be upset but don't seem to constitute being "treated rudely".

How about american born japanese artist who have gone to japan to sing? I think they would be more likely since they have ties to the US. And I'm not talking about Utada Hikaru either, I'm thinking of melody and Rie Fu (sings bleach ending theme). They'll probably be cheaper to get to come to fanime and they're very talented too! :D

KAMIJO. And if even possible...the whole band, Lareine! Even if not Kamijo, SOMEONE from that band. Even Machi or Kazumi(even though they left already) would do. ANYONE from Lareine.

...

...

...please? Obsessive much...maybe.

Oh, and have Snafu come again! And ask if this time, they can bring Bleedman! *w*

Oh, and a few cast members form the future Death Note movies:

-Tatsuya Fujiwara(Light/Raito Yagmi)

-Kenichi Matsuyama(L)

Those are the main 2 I want >< But anyone else if fine xD

Hayashibara had a kid a few years ago [of course, you obvoiusly knew that]. She's been on haitus from the seiyuu business for a while, let alone do any events. Keep in mind, guests usually go to cons and events to promote something, and since Hayashibara isn't really doing anything in the anime business at the moment, she doesn't really have a reason to come.

Anyway, onto my requests. I don't really expect big names like Hocchan, Yukarin, Mamiko-chan, and Kawasumi to attend Fanime. We are pretty big, but still unheard of in some areas. Maybe when we're big like Comic-con or AX [yes, we can strive for it! >< /]

Personally, if they voiced a character from Negima, that'd really make my day. -Negima freak >.>;- Akamatsu-sensei would be even better!

Some other manga-ka I'd like:
Amano Kozue [AQUA, ARIA]
Azuma Kiyohiko [Azumanga Daioh, Yotsuba&]
Kojima Akira [Mahoraba]
Kobayashi Jin [School Rumble]

Mostly ones that haven't done many titles but are very significant in my eyes. :]

Oooh, and the TYPE-MOON or Visual Art's/Key people would be awesome as well.

I'm assuming you mean Key staff only.  Key is a developer under the publisher Visual Art's.  Cause I know most people wouldn't really care about Studio Mebius or SAGA PLANETS staff. ^^;

That would be pretty hard since Tatsuya is a fairly big TV actor in japan before he did Death Note, and after he most likely would be even bigger.  Kenichi the same but his career was getting big after he was also in Nana.

I'll add more as I think of them...

Seiyuu:
Mamiko Noto
Nana Mizuki
Chiwa Sato
Ayako Kawasumi
Kana Ueda
Tomokazu Seki
Romi Paku
Yui Horie

Very unrealistic music list:
Gackt
L'arc~en~ciel
Antique Cafe
Gazette

Mangakas:
Iisaka Yukako
Narumi Kakinouchi
Kazuya Minekura
Ai Yazawa

Probably the whole list is unrealistic... ^.^;;
The main artists from Key or Type-moon would be nice also but I don't really count on any of this happening... >.>

- Ongakushitsu (Another band under Japanfiles. =D)
- Orange Range
- Gazette
- The Pillows (Anyone going to their SF Slim's show? I am. =D)
- Asian Kung-fu Generation. =3
- Porno Graffitti
- Rie Fu
- Mikuni Shimokawa

and...it'd be nice to see some Johnny's boys over here puwahaha. Like NEWS...even though their group activity has been put on hiatus for this year ^^;;;; But there's still KAT-TUN and Kanjani8...Even if we could just get Yamashita Tomohisa that'd be cool >DDDD

And I second the whole Fujiwara Tatsuya suggestion even though he's probably way too super busy o.O;;; It'd be cool to see him though, especially since I know people are anticipating his role as Raito in Death Note, and he's made so many fans with his role in the BR films as well as Shinsengumi!, Kamen Gakuen, Moonlight Jellyfish, etc.

Hm, that's all I can think of for now ^_^

if we can't get amano, can we at least have the band september? both are on the otokura label. (but i doubt we could have both, as the lead singer of september is also in amano's band~)

 :cry: I actually think Tsuki is a pretty good song o_O LOLLLLL. How is this one of her worst songs? LOLLL. Maybe I'm biased because Tatsuya is in the PV puwahahahahahahahaaa. xD

But I really do agree in bringing over Amano Tsukiko. I really like her songs "HONEY?" and "Chou" and "Treasure" too xD She's been growing on me ever since you've been plugging her stuff on here hahahahaha, and it's always cool to see more female rockers xD

Plus, I really would like for you to see your favorite artist since you've been showing her so much support ;__;

I personally would love that to no end.  But with the fact that there ARE still some straights who come to fanime that would not understand his brand of humor.  Letting him loose on San Jose would probably be asking for trouble.  It would be HILARIOUS, but id rather not see him get busted lol

i say that if we are ever going to have amano, we need to grab her now. >>

she is not that popular in america right now, but she is gianing popularity very quickly. not only will going to fanimecon boost her career, but once we get congoers intrested in her music, they will instantly fall in love. (the only people that have ever not liked amano i have talked to are people that refuse to listen to anything japanese, and believe me, i have converted a lot of people. <3)

i think that by having a star that is just rising and just on the edge of popularity would be a great thing, becuase then fanime can say "we had her first", and hopefully she would want to come back and make fanime ever better once she is more popular. :3

plus, her music is rihgt on the cutting edge and she is just an amazing person overall. the only flaw i can find with my plan is that in order to get her and her band out here, that would be quite a task, as pretty much all her band members work with other bands (from obscure little bands to TMR), and it woudl be quite a few people- amano, yamada akinori, takenami "JJ" toshiaki, ishihara shinichiro, yatsuka rie, strings players, synthesizer guy, though perhaps other (domestic) strings players can be trained to work with her, or she can skip all songs with strings in them (which is quite a few. :P). but other than that, i think it is very possible to get her out here, plus, fanime woudl be at a huge advantage for having her now.

meh. *cant beleive she wrote that much* >>

I'd also like to see Guitar Vader make it to Musicfest next year. I was kinda sad about their unfortunate drop out. In terms of MusicFest bands, I personally think it should be a mix between popular and newer developing bands so that more attendees will be encouraged to attend. There are a number of attendees I know of that usually don't care for music, unless the bands are well known such as Gackt, so maybe if more people are lured into the event, the small crowd from this year will expand.

Though that's just a theory...

I won't waste my time listing all the other more popular guests I'd like to see since everyone already did it for me.

I think that your theory would actually work, if the bands were evenly distributed in terms of their turn in the actual concert (so that not a lot of people would leave right after "their band" finished playing).

We should try this out. =D

Yeah, I want to see Guitar Vader next year, too. Did their guitarist (or was it bassist?) get out of the hospital okay? =|

It'd be nice if we could get Sanami Matoh for next year, since she couldn't make it for 2006 :wink:

I second that! I was looking forward to seeing her until I learned she wasn't coming... (Sort of the obvious-statement-of-the-century, but whatever.)

Bring back Sean (For the Eva panel)

Yeah! Square Enix!! I would totally like to see and hear the gaming industry people tell about how they make games and what's coming up next and I'd even bring my games to be autographed! *o*

How about someone with more authority over the thread than I do set up a list of seiyuus, musicians, artists, etc. and list our current wants (we might need to revive some names from earlier in the thread's past) and use that to whittle down for next year?

Duel Jewel is a very awesome Japanese indies rock band. They came to Fanime '04 to the Musicfest. If you're curious, they have some videos up on Youtube.

I could rant about Swinging Popsicle, Mothercoat, and so on all night - I've got them on my mp3 player and constantly listen to their tracks - but there's a few reasons they probably won't be coming back to FanimeCon anytime soon. There were a lot of miscommunications between us and their US reps, so a lot of expensive mistakes occurred. I don't think they'd want to work with me again.

Besides, our money is already earmarked... I don't think they'll come for free.

It sucks. I owe Junpei about a billion Cokes, too.

And I know it's technically not 'anime' but if we had the creators of 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' Mike Dimartino and Bryan Konietzko come(they did it at PMX), then I could die happy. (okay, maybe I wouldn't die happy, but at least I'd be happier.)

they are a very new little indies band with otokura records that has punky/poppy/rockish whatever music. it's impossible to explain. they aren't the best musically, but incredibly fun to listen to, and they have an awesome vocalist, even if she screams too much for my tastes (though not really much in comparison to a lot of bands. :P) just think about this- at their first (and only so far, they have another in march, though), someone came out dressed in a giant panda suit and did a punk-rock version of YMCA. how awesome would that be at fanime? :P

i wish they had some PVs or live clips. ;_; but sadly, no~

the closest thing you can find is actually amano tsukiko, as this is her side project, but still very diffrent from her solo work, as this was all done with the band, and seems to prefer that this and her solo career are treated as seperate entities, as evidenced by her name change to tenko and the fact that no one would be caught dead referring to tenko as amano around her.

i can upload clips if anyone wants to hear them. they are brand new, only one mini-album so far, and since otokura records started sucking around november (the redid the entire webpage and took down all clips), there is nothing to preview them by.

http://otokura.com/alunch/

there is their webpage anyway.



even though it's still technically amano... it's really not at all, as i said above. i think that a smaller band like this would be a bit easier to bring out, perhaps, and probably would be more fun to have a concert for, even if amano concerts are a grand show in themselves, musicfest and amano probably would not mix as well as i would like (unless she did a very stripped-down live), but A LUNCH and musicfest would probably be a perfect combination.

Everyone wants so many guests that they know would be impossible to get.

Hirano Aya... hahahahaha yeah, because 6 jobs, singing, and college at the same time already made her collapse from exhaustion and put in a hospital for two weeks...

LET'S GIVE HER AN OVERSEAS TRIP IN ADDITION TO THAT!

Also, there was a gaming industry panel that had workers from Atlus, EA, Konami, and Namco last year, only 4 people went. So they got drunk instead.

Oh Great! - would actually be a pretty good guest(even though I despise him as a writer though enjoy his art)... with the release of Tenjou Tenge and Air Gear in the states, but getting JUMP to agree that that might be a little difficult. I could ask him why his comics always go to crap after about 1/3 through the story though.

Prior to 2007 I have(multiple times) suggested Haruko Momoi, but now that she's with Avex in addition to a handful of other companies, it might be incredibly hard. Momoi has stated that she really wants to come to the US to see a US convention, she enjoyed AX Tokyo and the feel compared to Japanese conventions like Comiket. Illness prevented her from coming to AX, it would be a chance for her, and a huge opportunity for her as well.

Mosaic.wav Relatively unknown, though they've done a few anime openings for recent shows, like sumomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomomo~. Akiba's new sound is dempa, and mosaic.wav is a grand example of what's been following the moe~ trend for the past 2 years. Because they are smaller, it shouldn't be too difficult to acquire.

Romi Paku would be amazing to get, and her schedule seems to be slowing down recently so she might have an opening... maybe.

Perfume-Another relatively unknown group just starting out. They have ties with Haruko Momoi and have done a lot of promotion with her(they shared a few songs like Akihabara Love). Three super cute denpa singing girls.

Tamura Yukari- One of the best VA's out there. I think the biggest issue with her would be scheduling, since she's relatively busy, but has shown interest in wanting to come to the states.

*MGRCK or Meg Rock. She's done a handful of theme songs, and although everyone has probably heard her songs, very few people know who she is. Here, I'll help you out, she did "Catch You, Catch Me" From Card Captor Sakura. She's done a handful of songs recently from Joushikousei and Solty Rei(which is now in US so it'd be good promotion for that series). She's got a pretty nice voice and isn't some impossible name to get.

I've - As was said by a handful of people before. Kotoko's been doing her thing and promoting in the US, and I love her. Kawada Mami however is getting a lot larger, ever since the release of SEED which contained the opening to Shakugan no Shana.

Now, if I wanted to aim for something unobtainable, I'd want to aim huge. Like, mind blowingly huge, you people can have your Gackt, and Orange Range, Utada Hikaru, even Ayu... I'd aim larger.

Shiina Ringo... Rock Queen of Japan and Tokyo Jihen.

FUKUYAMA JUN.


Please?

He's a seiyuu, popularly known for Lelouch (Code Geass), Watanuki (xxxHOLiC), Keita (Gakuen Heaven), and many many more. He's pretty popular right now and I think he'd be a great addition to the Fanime guest lineup! .^^ He's also uber dorky and cute~

PLEASE please try and get Antic Cafe to perform here. Here's why I think they'd be perfect for Fanime. Antic Cafe is an up and coming indie band. They're already getting big in Japan. It's perfect timing for them to expand to the US. They're where Psycho le Cemu was at before they did their US thing.

I know it's probably impossible, but I recently saw Miyavi perform in Vegas and he was utterly fantastic. GET MIYAVI. Seriously. It will do Fanime good.

Kamijo came last year, but I missed him. :( Lareine should make an appearance this year, definitely. Get him back.

I asked Tony a while back, and it seems like he had a bunch of bands on standby. Thing is, he can't announce guests or bands until they sign a contract.

Chances are the guest list will get increases in huge floods. Like, we'll find out there are 5 bands and two more guests a month beforehand, and then guests and bands will trickle in as the contracts are signed.

At least, I'm pretty sure that's what the situation is at the moment.

Not that I know of.

The cry of most Fanime attendees lately has been to lower the amount of Bands and increase the number of guests. I think that while we desire more guests, we should also be courteous to those who agree to come to fanime. I know that I would be insulted if I offered my time and energy to come do a panel at Fanime and then hear that the Fanime attendees wanted 'better' guests.

While the desire for more guests (and arguably, more notable guests) is a legitimate one, we should also be careful not to insult the ones who are already willing to come out on our behalf.

I personally haven't said "lower the amount of bands plzzzzz"

I'm simply asking can we get guests that aren't just for the music event for fanimeee?? I mean can we have voice actors/artists/ ANYTHING? along with the music bands???

I agree! I like to see the bands and the guests, but I'm not seeing either listed. Anime Central is only 2 weeks before Fanime and they have a huge list of guests and bands posted (including my fave High and Mighty Color). Is Fanime hiding it's guests until the last minute?

Putting the official hat aside (meaning, I'm not speaking for Fanime or programming) and speaking a little from personal experience, working with other people outside of Fanime puts you on their time schedule, not yours. So, you can have everything planned out down to the date, and the other people can and will blow your carefully planned schedule to hell. And sometimes, it's even you who's responsible for blowing it because you got sick, personal situations came up, or you just needed a break from your split personality lives.

Anyways, I think I can say that those of us at Fanime who put in a ton of hard work to get our guests would have loved to give you something as early as January...

Oh, putting the official hat on for a sec, Fanime does have some guests to announce soon.. I think they have to do with music fest... I think I heard it's probably going to be longer than just a night.... something about one of them only playing on Thursday night as a "we so totally got lucky they wanted to play at Fanime again before going on to their big weekend gig".. I wasn't really paying attention (give me a break, it's my glorified 4 day weekend my dumb butt college calls a spring break), but you know, that sort of announcement.

I'm glad to hear that some guests are going to be announced soonish! I don't mean to annoy the staff begging for guests and I do appreciate all the hard work the staff does. It's just a little depressing when I browse other con pages and they have a bunch of guests lined up, and then I look over here and theres nothing. But I can't wait to see who is lined up! [Sits and waits patiently]  :)

You haven't heard anything YET. And I'd just like to add this -- every anime convention features voice actors and artists. It's a given. But not every convention... *rarely* every convention features jrock artists and even less conventions feature jpop artists. That's why Fanime is awesome for catering to people who DO want to see jrock artists perform every now and then. Other conventions hardly put emphasis on music at all.

Now, you don't get in free of course, but it is pretty awesome that it's going to be there. I bought my 100 dollar ticket already...but ticket prices start around 32 bucks.

Fanime needs more popular Japanese seiyuu. *nod* Okay, I, being a seiyuu fan, am biased, but still!!

100 bucks gets you in the first 8 rows, roughly.

Well, the show is going to be at 8 PM on Saturday night (the 26th) so the only events I can foresee it colliding with is the dance and maybe Der Cosplay...but I forget if it was Saturday Night or Sunday night now...oh well.

From everything I've heard about Play!, it is definitely going to be worth it.

Also, in case you guys don't get the PLAY! Symphony newsletter, they recently announced that they are coming to San Jose in cooperation with Fanime on May 26th. Now, you don't get in free of course, but it is pretty awesome that it's going to be there. I bought my 100 dollar ticket already...but ticket prices start around 32 bucks.

Should be fun!


Whoa...what do you get for the $100 ticket? It better be awesome for that price. If only the schedule was out (and I know that's WISHFUL thinking) so I knew if this was going to conflict with other events.  :lol:


100 bucks gets you in the first 8 rows, roughly.

Well, the show is going to be at 8 PM on Saturday night (the 26th) so the only events I can foresee it colliding with is the dance and maybe Der Cosplay...but I forget if it was Saturday Night or Sunday night now...oh well.

From everything I've heard about Play!, it is definitely going to be worth it.


Well there are usually Yaoi-con events Saturday night, and those are super fun, so I'd like to not miss them. Of course, they don't interest everyone, so it's not like they're going to schedule the concert around it.  :wink:

Well, assuming the concert is about 2 hours long, chances are it won't collide with too many Yaoi events since many of them are 11PM or later due to the 18+ age limit.

I really don't think that the concert will collide with too many events, and besides that I'd argue that based on the reviews and the experience, even though Fanime only happens once a year, this Symphony is something that you won't get much chance of seeing.

So, in my book, nothing at Fanime would stop me from going to the concert.

Won't it collide with MusicFest? Doesn't that usually start around 7PM on Saturday?

Because my efforts are laughable and getting my hopes up is ALMOST as fun as watching them get dashed, here's my list.

Vic Mignogna
Liam O' Brian
Monica Rial
Carrie Savage
Jason Liebrecht
Jonathan Klein

Yes, I'm FULLY aware that they're ALL from the English Phase of the industry, but they ARE from a Phase of the industry. Not to mention that my sig speaks volumes for my opinion.

Mmmmm......... Grimmjow............ He's voiced by my favorite seiyuu (Suwabe Junichi), who I think would be a lovely addition to the Fanime guest roster. *nudgenudgewinkwink*

Hmmm... FUNimation (http://www.funimation.com/f_index.cfm?page=conventions) sez they'll be going to Fanime this year... So does that mean some of their "regular" VA's will be attending, too?

Hmm....FUNimation is a nifty group of peeps. Whether the regular VA's will be there or not is probably an answer closer to a "No", but it'd be nice to have Dub companies around.

We can be optimistic though...

10 bucks says they pull another 3-4 guests out of their...hat about a week before fanime.

I don't mind the suspense, as long as more guests are announced.

Thanks. Anyways, hopefully a few more guests will be announced soon.

Personally, I'm psyched about Play! and I will probably be waiting in line 3 hours early for a crapload of goodies. ^_^

Title: Guests I want for Fanimecon 2007!!
Post by: FanFicGuru on May 18, 2007, 12:43:51 AM
NEW GUESTS!!!

Mari Iijima
Mari Iijima is well known for her work as Lynn Minmay in the Macross franchise, which many cite as the series that introduced anime into American pop culture. However, this talented musician, singer, and songwriter has a resume that far surpasses Macross.A true pop star, Mari Iijima is an accomplished singer and songwriter who has released numerous top 10 albums through Victor Entertainment Japan and Warner Music Japan. She has worked with some of the music industry's greatest musicians, both in Japan and in the U.S. Her songs and albums have also won several musical awards. Not limiting herself to music, Mari has also appeared in film, television, and on radio in both Japan and the U.S., which has also been award-winning work.

Reuben Langdon
Those who played Devil May Cry 3 and 4 may recognize Reuben Langdon as the voice of Dante. Mr. Langdon is a Los-Angeles-based actor, producer, and director who started his career in Japan on B-Fighter Kabuto and then worked in Hong Kong on films such as Jackie Chan's My Stunts, Gen-Y Cops, and The Medallion. Returning to the US, he appeared in CBS's Martial Law and Saban's Power Rangers. In addition, Mr. Langdon has performed in and coordinated motion capture shoots for interactive video games, including Star Wars: Jedi Knight II, Devil May Cry 3 and 4, and Deadrising. He also directed and edited an additional opening sequence for Devil May Cry 3.5 Special Edition. Mr. Langdon is co-founder of Just Cause Productions and is dedicated to raising the Action Cinema standard with a unique blend of Asian action flavor and Hollywood production values.

Asami Sanada
Where can we start with Sanada-san? She's played so many roles that differ so much - the hyperactive Dejiko in Digi Charat, the nerdy boy Jun Sakurada thrown into the world battling dolls in Rozen Maiden, the food fanatic Chizuko Oe in Mahoromatic, the cheerful, athletic girl Shina Tamai in the dark series Narutaru. Let's give Sanada-san a warm welcome!

If you read the info that it links to from the front page, Kobayashi is in charge of a new Naruto game and Fanime will be getting a world exclusive peek at it.

Pretty cool if you ask me.

I did click on it. It was in the same link as Iijima and took me to the guest page, where I didn't find any info about her. =.x
