Autograph Question

Post by larichann » Sun Mar 26, 2017 5:50 pm

Hi! I'm going to AB for the 2nd time this year and I was wondering if guests would be offended if I presented a work that they weren't directly involved in with its japanese debut. I have a manga book that I want signed by an English voice actor, but would it be appropriate?

It would be better to bring an item the guest has specifically worked on or been involved in.

do u mean the manga is something that was adapted into an anime and then the guest voiced in its English version?

I've had something like that signed before! It was manga art item, but the guest worked on that specific series US release, so they were cool with signing it
...buuuut just in case maybe have a backup item that is more directly related to their work
why, yes, I have been goin to this con since day 1. Wanna brain-break on the age math?

Most guests, particularly voice actors, feel weird signing something that they themselves were not in. Especially a manga. Some are cool with it, but most feel weird.

If you ever need a back up item, your Anime Boston program book is always a good choice and we'll have extras in the rooms.
