Title: Guests I Want for Fanimecon 2009!!!!
Post by: Nina Star 9 on May 26, 2008, 08:21:42 PM
...Yes, we gain an exclamation point every year. :D


This is one of those annual threads for people to post their ideal guests. You can post "dream guests," but just keep in mind that we won't be getting anything too crazy ("I want Koda Kumi, Ayumi Hamasaki, and Utada Hikaru for Musicfest, and then I want...").


My vote is still for Amano Tsukiko. I stand by my position that she is perfect for this convention, and I am sure that even if people hadn't heard her music before the con, they would end up loving her by the end.

...JiLL-Decoy association or Paris Match wouldn't be too bad, either... We could always use more jazz at Musicfest.

I also wouldn't be too sad if some lolita designers were brought out, but I don't know of any names or how realisitic that is.

I'm hoping for the Gainax/Gurren Lagann guests who couldn't come this year because they were working on the movie.

Some guests:

- Any voice actors from Evangelion, both Japanese and English versions. In fact Tiffany Grant (Asuka's VA) Has been to many conventions in the U.S. I don't think it'd be too much of a stretch to ask her to come, and Asuka is my favorite anime character.

- Riyoko Ikeda, the mangaka of Rose of Versailles.

- Tommy February 6

- Anyone who was involved in Tenchi Muyo! Voice actors (dub sub) mangaka, directors, this is one of my favorites so I would love to meet anyone who created it.

Yes, I know that many of these might be far fetched, but I did get to meet Yoshiyuki Sadamoto this year, and this is kind of a wish list so I thought I'd put it out there.

Bring VA's from a 13 year old series? Why? It's time for you to look past these old series and realize... there's 323242352354366 new things to watch that are current.

Tommy Feb would be impossible. With Brilliant Green getting back together, and their scheduled dates, unless she somehow gets Brilliant Green to do a tour date in the US... it'd be impossible. Though I'd probably like to see Brilliant Green more than Tommy Heavenly 6.


Eh... guests for next year.

Too bad Elle is on hiatus still.

Industry wise, I would like to see people from studio Shaft. Despite what anyone thinks of quality wise, direction wise they do things that most studios would never have the balls to do. And you know everyone at SHAFT is a total nerd.

VA wise, I always list the same set of people so I won't bother with that.

And... this one would be interesting but unlikely. Jun Tsukasa. Most people know who Range Murata is. Jun Tsukasa is sort of... a shadow of Murata. They have extremely similar art styles(and always have) but two very different ranges in subject and thought matter. I love Tsukasa Bullet. Tsukasa gets virtually no recognition in the US, and when people do have Tsukasa merchandise, it USUALLY gets confused for Murata Range stuff (I personally heard it twice this year at Fanime). They're actually friends and they've worked on doujinshi together, but they're very competitive with each other. I actually called Range Murata, Jun Tsukasa, and asked him to sign one of Tsukasa's doujinshi. It pissed him off a lot, and I apologized for it. He did say something afterwards though "Now I know how he feels".

I honestly like Tsukasa's work better than Murata's as Tsukasa is more versatile with his character types and poses. I think he'd be a great guest though... if he's not too shy about it all.

Well isn't SHAFT a spin off from GAINAX?

Actually it would be awesome to have them here, I figured by next year somebody will have Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei + Zoku licensed. Hmm that would be a very nice mix of peeps from
both companies.

And yeah we all need more SZS!

Sound Horizon



As much as I would absolutely love Sound Horizon to come to the US... this is not going to happen. Sound Horizon is basically a digital opera. No one would get it, no one would understand it, and no one would appreciate it.

Besides the fact that I doubt they would even come.

It would be rather cool if we did have An Cafe again but its probably highly unlikely. Plus, I know that peeps want variety and I don't know if we'd be able to keep being able to deal with those crowds.

I do wish Kamikaze Boys were still active. D:

Music wise I'd love to see capsule, Perfume, about any of the bands on the Contemode label.

I'd really love to meet Akira Amano but it would have been nicer to have had her for a guest before Reborn really caught on with alot of people. Other manga artists I'd love to meet would include Miwa Shirow, Ookubo Atsushi, Matsuei Yuusei, Kumeta Kohji, Oku Hiroya, and Hidekai Sorachi. We don't usually seem to have alot of mangaka's visit though.

Lets bring back old music fest members like Duel Jewel and ZZ!

x: wow alot of people requested like gackt and shiet. Gackt is uber expensive and besides he does some shows in Vegas I hear, its like your lucky if hes there. but thats word of mouth

I stiiil want to see Plastic Tree x: im such a retardo fangirl for them. well mainly because I studied some of their music for a psychology class LOL buuut bringgg theeem puritreeeeeeee!

I agree with Nina on how we should have some of the Lolita fashion members come like the creator of Metamorphose or Baby the stars shine bright (especially since they are opening a store in San Fran for the fall)

Kanon Wakeshima would be nice...since shes Mana-sama's new slavebitch and shes an amazing cellist! she did the ED for Vampire Knight.

Asami-san ooh How I wish for her to come back ;____; same with Mari Ijima

the only Mangaka im interested in is Mitsukazu Mihara D:< i have been waiting 3 years for her to come...bringg herrrr

Kazi> So they are opening the SF store? I only heard something about it casually, and dismissed it as a rumor. That is awesome, and would make it perfect for us to have to BTSSB peeps over here for the con.




Also, might I mention that not only has Amano been studying English and would probably love to be at Fanime, but it is confirmed that she is doing the newest Fatal Frame themesong, so we could have a possible tie-in there, especially since she is most famous for doing the past themes? (HintHint?)

Not true. Gackt hates appearing in public... period. The only only only only reason he did AX was because Yoshiki asked him to. You don't say no to Yoshiki... seriously. He has so much power in the music industry that saying no to him is suicide.

Maybe for next year, we can change up the musical artists, away from the typical J-Rock/J-Pop.

I suggest Nujabes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nujabes) (real name is Jun Seba). If you've heard the music before, it's a beautiful blend of hip-hop and jazz music. And definately he would get the same amount of reception given how popular he is, both before and after working on Samurai Champloo.

I would definitely love to see bands such as Karma Shenjing, LYV, and ZZ come back in the future, as with An Cafe(not necessarily for 2009, but definitely to be considered for future FanimeCons)

I say give UVERworld and Guitar Vader a second shot at inviting if you can, maybe. It seems quite a bit of people were either looking forward to them or would have been happy to see them if they came, based on past events. Same thing with Sanami Matoh, perhaps.

Musicians:
Beat Crusaders
Anna Tsuchiya
Olivia
Nujabes(seconded)
mflo
High Voltage

And my brain just died... Yeah...

XD Agreed on all that are listed and then some:
Sakurai Takahiro (Shibuya Yuri/KKM, Suzuku/Code Geass, Cloud/Advent Children)
Hidenobu Kiuchi (Oshitari/Prince of Tennis, Hei/Darker than Black, Ryuuren/Saiunkoku)

Mangaka: You Higuri

Music acts: Nami Tamaki, TM Revolution

^^ That's all I can think of now.

Just to prove GR is reading this thread too... heh.

Hidenobu Kiuchi-san came this year ;).

 ;D And I was happy~! Just some hope that he would come back again for 2009~

I also agree with CLAMP!

T.M. Revolution was at New York Comic Con this year so we might get lucky getting them.
I also saw someone list Nightmare that would be good too. I would love to get Maximum The Hormone. Also on the want list are:

Kuroda Michihiro - You may know him from a band called Iceman. They did music for the anime Gravitation. He is in a new band called Scarecrow.
Kotani Kinya - Also from Gravitation fame. His band was Bad Luck in the anime. Also knowen for the first opening song (Blaze) on Tsubasa Chronicle.
FLOW - Would also be much FTW.
Orange Range - Much love for them! :)
Asian Kung Fu Generation
Porno Graffitti

Yes this is a large wish list. As it is I am not even sure if the last two are still bands because I have not looked up any further infomation on them other than their music at this time. I know getting ANY of these would be impossible. But a girl can dream!

I know this is a bit of a stretch since this IS an anime con, but since there are a lot of Asian films, it'd be cool to see a lot of Korean actors (artists, etc) at the con! [:
Seriously :x

and this is a stretch buuut

Korean singers like Rain and Se7en Just because Im like a mondoretardo fangirl for them probally more than AN cafe. if they came D: oooh people would be in comas from my fists of fury

Post by: Nina Star 9 on June 23, 2008, 11:09:00 PM
I agree with diversity in the musical guests. We need some jazz out here, first of all, such as in the form of JiLL-Decoy association or Paris Match. Not a super popular genre, but since they tend towards fusion styles, the music is very accessible to most people, even if they dislike jazz.

We also cannot forget that JDA did the opening theme for Red Garden (Jolly Jolly... that song actually got me into the anime...) and the opening and ending themes for the newest season of Blue Dragon (though those two are less representative of their style).


I would also like to mention (possibly again) now that we are on the subject of what certain musical artists did for what, that Amano Tsukiko is doing the themesong for Fatal Frame IV, and that the game is trying to appeal to a wider audience outside of Japan, from the little information that I know (have been avoiding spoilers like the plauge). So she has yet another reason to come and be an awesome musical guest. I mean, if we are going to have j-rock yet again, we might as well have something other than just VK, right?

Guests wise, my wishlist is:

TAKEHITO KOYASU (notice the caps)
Jun Fukuyama
Mamoru Miyano
Hikaru Midorikawa


American voice actor list:
Crispin Freeman (actually a really cool guy)
Patrick Seitz (really nice person, such a nerd XD)
Ralph Lister


Anime industry people:
Taliesin Jaffe 



But seriously guys, Takehito Koyasu. Why hasn't anyone suggested him yet? He's only in EVERYTHING.


That is all I can think of now.
Title: Re: Guests I Want for Fanimecon 2009!!!!
Post by: PyronIkari on July 14, 2008, 01:34:45 AM
Because Koyasu doesn't even do public appearances in Japan. He's like Masamune Shirou. He doesn't like public appearances, or more specifically, he doesn't like people. Friends of mine who have basically met everyone there is to meet, say it's extremely hard to set up anything with him. JP companies and magazines have been trying to get interviews with him for a long time, and for them it's near impossible, let alone an American convention.

This is quite impossible, as Johnny's never leave SE Asia. Taiwan/HK/China is the furthest they go from Japan, and that is ONLY because they have a huge huge huge huge huge huge huge established fan base there. There isn't a chance in hell that fanime could afford it, and even if they could, they still would get a no.

Actually, I think about 3 years ago (?), KAT-TUN was supposed to make an appearance in Los Angeles in some kind of parade, but when they showed up, girls went ALL kinds of crazy which compromised the safety of the group and they couldn't even get through the parade, lol. So while there was a public appearance (not even a concert!) by a JE group on this side of the globe, it was pretty dangerous, lol.

And with incidents like Yamapi getting nearly beaten up by his fans at the airport in Seoul (all this WITH security surrounding him), I'm not sure we'd have enough man-power to protect HIM, let alone the rest of the NEWS members properly, lol.

Issues like that, along with the things that they would need for their highly elaborate shows...it'd be very difficult. (^^;   )

This is only half true. The trip wasn't for an appearance. A certain Johnny's member was going to school in LA. Short of it, people found out things they shouldn't and that's what happened.

LOL, that makes it even worse then! xD I know Jin went to LA to take English classes, but I'd thought it was a little later.  (This old mind of mine is going senile o_o...) That still reinforces the fact that JE boys would need a ton of security if we were ever super lucky enough to get approval to bring 'em over.

But you know since lolita brands are getting pretty big in the United states, especially with baby the stars shine bright opening in Aug of 09 in SF you should get some lolita brands to come here =)

Baby the Stars shine bright

I totally second bringing loli brands out here! It actually is getting a lot more common at cons to bring out loli brands, and I noticed that last con, there were a lot of really good lolis, instead of the usual crop of cheap lace and shiny satin.



I'm also going to repeat: we need some jazz. JiLL-Decoy association, plz. I'd e happy with paris match. Or even orange pekoe, but they are less desireable. JDA would be pure win, though, esepcially since I'm hoping for something other than just pop and visual kei. If you must have rock, Amano Tsukiko is still perfect, but I'm really hoping to see some jazz. D: Unlikely to get any of these artists, since I suggest them all the time, but it would be amazing~

For music I'd love to see Acid Black Cherry and maybe even the bands of all the support members. Breakerz would probably bring a good amount of people, so I'm sure the two of them together would probably bring an even bigger crowd.

But I'd only want that if fans would get at least two months notice since I have friends on the east cost who would want to come for ABC. And giving anyone only one months notice just isn't satisfactory. For any band.

We do what we can. It's hard to get contracts from Japan translated, signed by the right people, sent back to Japan, translated again, signed on their end, sent back to us. Then arranging hotel rooms, plane tickets that coincide with everyone's schedule, then hashing out the actual schedule for con. It's pretty crazy.

I know that it seems like we have a full year, but that is just not the case. Research, contacting the bands and negotiations take time.

If you would like to improve this situation, you are more than welcome to join staff and help us make this happen. Saying that we should announce our guests within a certain timeframe is easy. Making it actually happen is the hard part!

At least, I commute for Fanime and I don't even live close by because I enjoyed going to Fanime every year, no matter what guests they bring. Thank you, Fanime Staffs for being awesome guests every year!

Back on topic, I love to see Miyano Mamoru coming over since he's well-verse in both being a seiyuu and singer. He also does stage play too. For music guests, seeing both Nami Tamaki and TM Revolution performing would be awesome. =)

Camino.  Hands down, if there's one group I think that should come back, it's Camino.

What with their recent openings of Koutetsu Sangokushi and Tomika Hero Rescue Force, I know a lot of American fans are sorely missing them.  Not to mention that since their last American appearance (that I can find - someone correct me if I'm wrong) is in 2006.  Since then, they've released 6 (and presumably going on 7/8, since Story hasn't had a Maxi Single or an OST or anything released yet) cds that their American fans haven't been able to get our hands on.

Every time I've seen them at a con, they've been exceptionally nice to fans, which is a real plus for guests (no matter how popular you are, if you're a jerk, you're a jerk.  They aren't).

That's my two cents.

I wouldn't be opposed to this. Then I could get my Koutetsu album signed! ;D

Still rooting for more seiyuu to come. *puppy face*

Here is an improbable list of possible guests I wish to meet for the 2009 year.

Voice Actors:
- Takehito Koyasu (Extremely unlikely since he's so popular D:)
- Kōji Yusa (As stated above)
- Johnny Yong Bosch or Dante Basco for some American talents :D (But once again, very popular XD)

Mangaka:
- Yūsei Matsui (His works have yet to be published in America but I've come to appreciate his works through the Japanese Shonen Jump.)
- Takahashi Rumiko (Also very famous.)

Musical Guests:
- redballoon
- RADWIMPS
- Ore Ska Band

Unknown category and unlikely:
- Bleach Musical group members, like Tatsuya Isaka or Miki Satō. :D

YUUSEI YES. Haha me and my friend want to meet him very badly, she also would like Paku Romi (the voice of Sai) cause she loves Sai... alot xD;; And ALI PROJECT based off the really well done fan made OP for Neuro.

Improbable perhaps but it's worth the shot right? It would be great if Viz licensed the manga at the con and would have an excuse to drag along the artist with them ; 3

Post by: ph1shf00d on August 27, 2008, 09:52:43 PM
Haha, dunno how many times he's been mentioned in this thread, but YES. 9001th-ing David Hayter!  More of the MGS cast would be great too.. Christopher Walken~~~ *w*

Eiichiro Oda would be my dream guest.  Kubo TIte being at SDCC gave me a little bit of hope, although... Oda is considerably more popular in Japan, so I guess getting him to come over here would be ten different levels of insanely difficult.  Still, while we're dreaming.. Haha.
Title: Re: Guests I Want for Fanimecon 2009!!!!
Post by: Hirotona on August 27, 2008, 10:41:28 PM
Problem is Oda apparently not a very social person at all so... as cool as he'd be as a guest I seriously doubt that's going to happen. I do wish more mangaka's would go here then comic con though : /
Title: Re: Guests I Want for Fanimecon 2009!!!!
Post by: GokuMew2 on August 28, 2008, 02:10:06 PM
Been on Kamiya high lately, so~

KAMIYA HIROSHI PLEASE~!

He is SUCH a talented seiyuu. You might kinda have to listen to his bl work to fully appreciate his abilities, but nevertheless.

Natsume / Natsume Yuujinchou
Tieria / Gundam 00
Michael / Macross F
Itoshiki Nozomu / Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
Kengo / Monochrome Factor
Shinji / Fate/stay night
Yuuta / Honey and Clover

I completely agree with Johnny Young Bosch and the cast of Rock Musical Bleach (even if it is completely unlikely... I can still dream though)  I'm a huge fan of Johnny Young Bosch, he's such a good voice actor!!!!

If the cast for Rock Musical Bleach were there I would probably have a heart attack, it would be completely awesome!! I would love to see Tsuchiya Yuuichi and Nagayama Takashi!!!!! =)

Here are some thought since the Lolita fashion is hitting america like hotcakes and with Baby The stars shine bright, Black Peace now along with other brands that are sold through MaruiOne are going to be in SF due to the VIZ Jpopcenter in Japantown

I suggest we bring baby the stars shine bright, Black Peace now and Angelic Pretty

They have made countless appearances (though BPN under MaruiOne for dealers room) And I say its time we bring them along.
I dont think Baby Made an appaearance yet but It would be very cool

I said this last year, I'll say it again for this year:

Some video game company representatives. Atlus, in particular, with their work on Disgaea and the appeal to the Japanese SRPG niche, would fit in very nicely.

I understand that Fanime is primarily about Anime and to a lesser extent live action movies from Japan, but hearing from Atlus would be a great addition as well.

wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

You realize that despite Atlus localizing Disgaea, and even Rhapsody back in like '96... they don't own the rights to it. NiS does now. NiS would probably do it, but I highly doubt Atlus would come up for fanime.

I'm curious what you would expect from Atlus though. They're a localization company, as NiS is. They aren't creators/producers. Atlus USA works in translation and publishing games, outside of that, they don't do very much.

They had a panel at AX 2 years ago. Despite it actually getting good attendance, nothing really happened other than staff making fun of each other.

So really, I'm curious what you would expect them to talk about.

PS: I worked at atlus for, and I know pretty much everyone that does work there.

Since they are a localization company, I think that hearing them talk about the challenges and typical process of localizing a game like Disgaea or one of the many other Japanese SRPGs they've helped to bring to the states would be a good subject.

Meh, now that I think about it, it's probably not all that different from Anime localization processes. Still, I love Atlus for the work they do and when I think of game companies that could mesh well with an overwhelmingly anime-themed convention, Nippon Ichi/Atlus come to mind.

Hell, you worked there, maybe I'll just ask you about it at your Damn you Internets! panel, if you do it again lol.

I doubt Aya Hirano would be able to come this year she came to AX in like 06 or 07 and shes been busy :U shes a college student still if I remember and plus I think it would take alot of coaxing to come back to the US after the whole AX fiasco.

and Durr we know what Lucky star is, I dont think its needed to put Rakii sutaa

I personally would LOVE to see Mitsukazu Mihara a mangaka, Maki and Asuka who design clothes for angelic pretty (they did an amazing job at the Yumemiru musical paradise event in LA from what I Hear) Plus since lolita is sooo big in the US I suggest Angelic pretty and Baby The Stars shine bright Designers/CEO's :d

-I'd love to see ZZ again, they were so awesome to see live
-RAMEN & RICE!
-UVERworld
-Orange Range
-Nami Tamaki
-Super Junior Happy (they're a k-pop band, figured it could still work)
-Big Bang

mangaka:
-Tite Kubo! (I'd be so so happy if Fanime was able to do this XD)
-Yuu Watase

other guests:
-representatives from Square Enix (really stretching it here XD)
-representatives from Nintendo, ideally Shigeru Miyamoto (again, really stretching it here)

off the top of my head thats all I can think of at the moment - most of these are probably unlikely but eh I can hope for the best at least XD

I think it'd be lovely to have Baby The Stars Shine Bright come (or if Novala Takemoto came as well). Considering Viz's connection to them as well as the fact that they're based in San Francisco, it'd be good promotion^_~

As for mangaka, I'd really like to meet Kazuya Minekura. I know she's busy with Wild Adapter again, but it doesn't hurt to ask, right? haha.

For an anime related guest, I'm requesting Michael Arias (Tekkon Kinkreet film adaptation).

For music, Capsule would be awesome, but I suppose they're a "dream list" request...I also think Se7en would be good (yes, I know he's Korean). Even though he's working on his US debut, it doesn't look like his management has been promoting him much, so I think it'd be a good idea to have him at Fanime. It'd also be nice if Karma Shenjing could come back. The last time I saw them was at JrockCon, as I was somehow uninformed about the concert last year T___T

ehh I wouldnt say novala Takemoto (or should I say TOKEmoto) will be doing a US debut again sometime soon after his release from prison for having/using marijuana, since then Baby has pulled every collab they did with him saying "we had nothing to do with this lol" so hes trying to rebuild his reputation again.

I would love for baby to come to Fanimecon since they are opening either this winter or spring in SF where that super awesome Jpop center depending if they get a full staff and that store manager ready. They along Angelic Pretty's Maki and Asuka have been very welcomed to the US and in the So-cal Part of the reason we should totaly have them up in Norcal as well. MaruiOne would be amazing even if they were just a dealer they have been a good dealer to j-fashions

as for Se7en his debut has been pretty small, my friend met him last year at a verizon event in the bay area like some asian artist there isnt alot of big promo/hype so its basically you have to look at the offical website

Yeah, I heard about that when it happened, but about a month ago I was flipping through a Gothic Lolita Bible, and saw a BTTSB ad with him in it. I don't remember whether or not it was an English or Japanese version, but I'm pretty sure it was recent, so it got my hopes up, hehe. If it was recent like I thought it was, then it was probably just a reprint in an English version from one of the original/older bibles. I guess there's always waiting until after he's served his prison sentence, haha.

As for Se7en, I heard about the single release party this weekend, so hopefully it won't be so low key anymore, because his management & label seems reluctant to make it official yet...They recently shot the "Girls" video with Lil' Kim, so maybe by the end of the month they'll give us some actual dates for the single >__<  I don't know how well BoA's thing in the US is going to pan out, but it at least looks like SM has a better idea than YG of how to market here ;__;

Actually alot of the english version of the lolita bibles have some of the older stuff in it. So yeah Novala is out of jail but he is still writing and such for the lolita bibles in japan its just not so huge like it used to be, I still love how he wrote shimotsuma story and I hope he gets more of his books translated sometime soon.

Haha Se7en shot a video with lil' Kim? I have to see that but it would be nice to see Rain here since he did a few lives here in the US and did a colab with Omarion I think *O* especially being an inspiration the guy has a protoge in the works. He has been in movies like Speed Racer, You got served and Im a cyborg but thats okay. He has done bomb ass collabs with Diddy and Jojo as well. Hes rising to fame in the US and I probally would die seeing him live x) hes like my top favorite Korean Artist

BoA is a bit of a common name to anime fans because her song every heart was on Inuyasha, I like how shes tri lingual so having her would be a fun time though Im guessing lines and such will be like AN Cafe's =3=

I also vote to bring out loli brands! >:O



I wouldn't want BoA out. She's too big. Fanimecon last year seemed more like AnCafecon. The mass amounts of fangirls and the huge crowds and lines and the obession over them all weekend was just too much. I'm glad that Fanime can get someone like that out, but I really don't like it. I prefer smaller guests.




That said, I still wouldn't mind JiLL-Decoy association or paris match as a musical guest. ;P Guitar Vader (and hopefuly they can actually come to the con this time!) would also be good.

If it were at all possible, I would nearly DIE if we got Yuu Watase (Fushigi Yugi, Ceres, Absolute Boyfriend, Alice 19th, Imadoki Now-a-days, etc.)

Not only is she still popular, but she's doing the prequels to Fushigi Yugi. Getting her autograph and/or a pic with her.... PLEASE TRY FOR HER! XD

Another interesting one would be 1 or all 4 of the Clamp members. My best bud would die happy if she met them.

Those are my wish guests, I know I'm dreaming, but a girl can dream and wish, right??? ^_^

Umm well not to be mean but An Cafe is comming to the US again three california cities in April so Im pretty sure you can just shell out money to go see them again.
■ 09.04.11 AVALON (Los Angeles/U.S.A.)
■ 09.04.12 HOUSE OF BLUES (ANAHEIM/U.S.A.)
■ 09.04.14 SLIM'S (SAN FRANCISCO/U.S.A.)

To be honest I would actually like to see actual japanese brand representatives such as Baby the stars shine bright, Angelic Pretty and Metamorphose temps de fille for the lolita styles and H.Naoto, Black Peace Now and Sex Pot revenge for punk styles these are just suggestions since they have all peaked interests into the US market, with Baby opening their store in SF in either spring or summer, Angelic Pretty's Yumemiru musical paradise event that had a huge success and Maki and Asuka themselves said they would love to come back and have a dream of starting a US store here. H.Naoto has an english site and have been known to do collabs with Amy lee since she did wear some of their clothes before. BPN is just amazing for a gothic brand and Sex Pot revenge have had a mass popularty in punk clothing besides others like Putumayo and others which i cannot remember. Metamorphose has had a decent us market since they had their own english site prior to baby or AP.

haha or just get maruiOne to come and talk about how they are gonna open at the jpop center along with baby :U
Title: Re: Guests I Want for Fanimecon 2009!!!!
Post by: Nina Star 9 on January 17, 2009, 11:20:16 PM
I would love for Meta to come out here. The other brands would be great (I want more than overpriced iffy offbrand, and waaaay overpriced decent-looking offbrand, oh yeah, and throw in a couple of brand J-punk items at some J-rock booth), as well, and Baby would certainly be a good choice since they are opening that store in SF.

I think I'm biased, though. I <3 retrololi. :D



Lolita Kisama isn't really the best clothing out there, but I do buy black nail polish from them every year (since my old bottle always seems to clump up and dry out around Fanime time...). I would be sad without my yearly polish. ;P I'm with Kazi on bringing out actual loli brands, though. That would be a huge boost to Fanime.

I'd do anything for a PSC artist to come. D:

alice nine. would be my top choice, even though I like the GazettE more, it seems like alice nine. fits into the fanime environment better. They have a "Final Fantasy"-like sound. I'm sure everybody would like them. :)

Crosses fingers toes hairs arms legs. D: Oh please~

In case anybody would like to know just who I mean by PSC artist...
the GazettE (heavy rock...) --Their image is too heavy for Fanime...even though I'd LOOOOVE it if them came...
alice nine. (FF style. You'll see. Youtube it?) --Hopefully a likely candidate.
miyavi (everyone knows him right?) --Probably too busy being awesome and traveling the world.
Kagrra, (Very Japanese inspired music) --? Maybe? :D
SuG (an newbie PSC Indies band, maybe it'll be easier to get them?) --O_O yayy~
SCREW/Kra (I don't know much about these two...yet) --??? We shall see?

-----

That would be my only serious request, that I would be willing to do anything for. But of course, it'd be great to see these people as well...
Vic Mignogna
Romi Paku
Hiromu Arakawa

Puttining another vote for Camino.  They've just recently released their new CD, The Life, which from what I've managed to hear (and see in the PV) it's AMAZING.  That's their 6th album since they last attended Fanime (not including albums they were featured on, but weren't there's.)

With now three openings for series (two for the same show, one for Koutetsu Sangokushi), I think it's about time they came back =3

Also, Run Sasaki would be a fun guest.  She actually lives here in the US now, in Washington (right near Seattle) and teaches voice acting to aspiring american VAs (such as myself).  She's crazy nice and crazy fun, and I'm sure would love to come down and spread the Japanese Seiyuu way.

Since this is a general request thread, I'm naming most of the seiyuu that come to mind, except for the two below.

I request these two every year, so here goes:

Kumichi Yoshizuki (Artist)
Norie Yamada (Writer)

This duo is responsible for Someday's Dreamers.

I would not mind (albeit unlikely) any these seiyuu (All of them play a role in Nanoha one way or another, and have even more roles beyond):   

Kana Ueda
Nana Mizuki
Yukari Tamura
Kaori Shimizu
Natsuko Kuwatani
Ryoka Yuzuki
Ai Shimizu
Aya Hisakawa
Tomokazu Sugita

and a couple others:

Ami Koshimizu (Notable as Yukiko in Persona 4, Kallen in Geass )

Jun Fukuyama (Aka Lelouch)

I'd definitely like to see more JP seiyuu (in part because this most recent year I've gotten significantly better at recognizing them). I'm not sure how difficult it is to get big-name seiyuu, but there should be a lot of middle-crowd ones to choose from...

Actually, I think that a good thing to jump on this year would be Macross Frontier. There are plenty of good names of varying amounts of fame there, and the series is one of the best things in recent memory that has broad appeal. Boy would I love to see Megumi Nakajima perform (though I kinda doubt we have the facilities).

A humble suggestion to invite...

- Crispin Freeman and the cast of Hellsing Ultimate

OR

- Dan Green and the cast of Yu-Gi-Oh

OR

- The cast from Death Note

OR

- The cast from Ghost in the Shell

Another humble suggestion is to also invite Crispin Freeman to do his mythological panel, which has been a big hit in every convention.

I think the normal protocol is to let the voice actors' respective agents know.  Crispin's website has instructions (including his agent's information) in making arrangements for his appearance.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed hoping that either this year or in the near future we get to see these stars.

So it just occurred to me that Mr. Yamaga is not listed on the guest list for Fanime 2009. Is there going to be a break in Fanime tradition, or is he one of the three "Surprise" guests?!

Don't worry, he's coming.

Alright. ;)
This is my list of Guests that I would very much love to see come to Fanime09.
Some have been to Fanime before, some haven't....to be honest...Reuben is the only one out of the list that has came to Fanime. :D

Reuben Langdon - (Devil May Cry 3-4 as Dante) & (Motion Capture for Chris Redfield)

Roger Craig Smith - (Voice actor for Chris Redfield)

Ken Lally - (Motion capture for Albert Wesker)

D.C. Douglas - (Voice actor for Albert Wesker)

Patricia Ja Lee - (Voice actor/Motion capture for Jill Valentine)

Karen Dyer - (Voice actor/Motion capture as Sheva Alomar)

Allan Groves - (Voice actor/Motion capture as Ricardo Irving)

T.J. Storm - (Voice actor/Motion capture as Josh Stone)


It would be awesome if we could get the whole cast from Resident Evil 5.
Or at least some of them...especially the voice actors YES YES!  :-*
Oh pleaseee!!  ;D

I would like only four people to come. Crispin Freeman, Reuben Langdon, Dan Southworth, and Johnny Young Bosch. These voice actors are amazing and with the release of Resident Evil V Ruben should come to see his fans. Also Dan should come to join his Devil May Cry friends and Fans, then Johnny should be there so Bleach Fans and DMC fans can be happy.

Kevin Conroy, who did the voice of Bruce Wayne/Batman from Batman: The Animated Series to Justice League Unlimited, and again for Batman: Gotham Knight. I would ask him what he thought about Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.

To those who said Hiroyuki Yamaga & Halko Momoi - you called it.

Hiroyuki Yamaga, Halko Momoi Reportedly Going to Fanime (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2009-04-07/halko-momoi-hiroyuki-yamaga-reportedly-going-to-fanime)

Steve Conte and/or Scott Matthews. Both did songs for Cowboy Bebop. Scott did some more for GITS and Steve did some for Wolfs Rain. Not sure if either of them have done any other anime soundtracks since then though. Great voices and music. I was compelled to purchase their CDs.

MOMOI SHOULD BRING PERFUME, AMIRITE. HAVE A LITTLE REUNION OR SUMSHAT.

S'cool that she's coming though. I didn't get to go to her events in AX, so this'll be a good chance. O:

Don't know if it's too late, but I'll throw in who I wish could be at Fanime this year:

#1 Aya Hirano (missed at AX 2 years ago, would be dream come true...)
#2 Hironobu Sakaguchi (creator of Final Fantasy and all...would be amazing to meet, very admirable.)
#3 Danny Choo (Awesome blogger from Tokyo, over 2 mil hit his site a month, very inspirational man.)
#4 Tite Kubo (Bleach creator, would be awesome to meet.)
#5 Marina Inoue (voice of  awesome characters from Gurren Lagann, Getsumen To Heiki Mina and more.)

Would be really nice to see more Japanese guests who are either involved in the creation of a anime/manga, or original Seiyuu  (like Momoi) Can't think of any more atm...I think more than anyone I'd want Danny since he specializes in Public Speaking, Networking, and the overall Anime/Manga industry and Japanese culture, and there are ALOT of users in California from his site... Oh well, that's my 0.02 :)

I'd pretty much wet myself if either of them got announced as guests at Fanime.
Their voices are like sex.

Seiyuu...I'm open to all. :0 I don't know them that well. Just a few names here and there.

MUSICC.

YUI (would be superb.)
alice nine. (would have me frothing at the mouth to get in)
SID (my new looooove)
...actually. I have a lot I like. :)

3rd this idea as well! I think he would come out because we are in the Silicon Valley and
the biggest plus near ILM.

Just wondering, but would you guys be interested in George Takei? I know a lot of people got really excited seeing him for a very short time at SF CBF. He would be fun
to have as a MC for Masquerade or even the Grand Marshall for FanimeCon 2010. It would switch it up a bit for the con, especially his involvement with the Japanese community in SoCal and his experiences throughout his life.

Danny would make a very interesting panelist, and he could probably even represent GSC.
I would definitely like to see him in 2010.
