Website Update & Guest Announcement

Wendy Powell is best known for her work at Funimation and Okatron 5000. Her most notable roles are: Envy from Full Metal Alchemist and Iiena from Claymore.

Jessica Cavanagh is a professional stage actor and life-long theater nerd who was lucky enough to have fallen into her first voice role in an anime on a total fluke- and even luckier that anime turned out to be fan favorite, Black Butler.

We are sad to announce that Chris Smith and Cindy Robinson are unable to make the convention this year due to a sudden injury. We wish Cindy a speedy recovery and send warm thoughts to Chris while he helps her through her convalescence.

Thursday night badge pick up will take place from 6pm-9pm outside of the expo center. This is for attendees who pre-registered only. (No badges will be sold that night!)
