Post Anime Boston 2014 Guest Suggestion Thread
Please post here your suggestions for Anime Boston 2014 Guests of Honor.

Please keep in mind:
1. Please post Artist and Performer names and not just the characters played or songs performed.

2. Links to Youtube, Wikipedia, or Anime News Network on the Artist or Performer are great, as long as they are specifically about them.

3. This is a suggestion list, not a nomination process. "Seconding" or "Ditto" does not matter, and is likely to get your post overlooked or deleted.

4. Our Guests are professional people with professional and personal lives. As much as we'd like to invite someone, it doesn't always work out.

5. We are serious when we ask you not to invite guests for us. This includes asking a potential guest "If they would be interested in going to Anime Boston if invited" or similar questions.

6. Anime Boston's mission is focused on Japanese Anime, Music and Pop Culture. Our focus on Guests will reflect this.

With that said, please be considerate and read the posts previous to your own. Multiple suggestions for the same guest will have no greater impact than a single suggestion for a guest.

Yay! I was hoping this thread would open soon. ;P

I would love to see Vic Mignogna and J. Michael Tatum (of course), but I would be happiest if I could see Scott McNeil, who voiced Kouga in InuYasha, and Hohenheim of Light from FMA.

As for a musical guest, I'd LOVE to see Puffy AmiYumi, I haven't heard about them in a while. It'd be great to see them live.

And last, but certainly not least, I'd be sooooo happy if you could get Arina Tanemura as a Japanese guest. I love just about all of her work: Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne, Full Moon O Sagashite, Time Stranger Kyoko, Sakura Hime Kaden, Mistress Fortune...

Thanks for listening!

Post Re: Anime Boston 2014 Guest Suggestion Thread
Yesssssss I was waiting for this thread! :lol: Here goes...

Musical guests:

Ishikawa Chiaki
Former member of See-Saw (Anna ni issho datta no ni et al), she has a pretty thriving solo career and recently released her latest single Sayonara tte iu, the ED for Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince. She'll be in Baltimore this August for Otakon, so perhaps she could return next spring for AB?
Official site, Wiki page

FictionJunction
Kajiura Yuki's "solo project", four singers who've sung the themes for Pandora Hearts, Sacred Seven, etc. Their last visit to the US was last year's Anime Expo, and they'll be visiting Hong Kong in September. I would love to see a live performance from FJ, especially if Kajiura herself joins them along with their band. (Even if it means paying extra for tickets.)
FJ Wiki page, Kajiura Wiki page

Luna Haruna
A relatively new anisong singer with a Lolita image who made her debut singing Sora wa Takaku Kaze wa Utau, the ED for Fate/Zero. Also sang Overfly, an ED for Sword Art Online. She made her first overseas appearance this year in Seattle at Sakura-Con.
Official site, Wiki page

Kon Natsumi
Although she's currently training as a stage musical actress, she just began her solo singing career with the single Watashi wa Souzou Suru, the OP for Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince. I think it'd be great if she could make her first overseas appearance here.
Official blog, JPopAsia page

Kotohge Mai
A singer working almost exclusively for C-CLAYS, a Touhou doujin circle. While she's not quite anime-related, I think it would be interesting to have someone involved in another aspect of Japanese music, similar to having fashion designers as guests.
C-CLAYS official site, Mai official site (Muon@Groove, a non-Touhou project she's also involved in)

Otherwise, my requests are rather vague, like "any voice actor hailing from Vancouver BC", so I'll leave my official list the way it is. Thank you for reading :)

Well, I list these two every year, so might as well go with it again!

1. Rie Kugimiya
2. Norio Wakamoto

And to go with someone that I haven't listed in the past,

3. Maaya Sakamoto

Pretty much anyone involved in tokusatsu would be pretty awesome, even if it's just an American adaptation such as Power Rangers. Maaya Uchida (Hiroyo from Akibaranger) might be neat, especially since she's also done anime voice acting.

Post Re: Anime Boston 2014 Guest Suggestion Thread
I would love for the Ayres brothers to come back again, because I missed getting their autographs this year. Based on looking at the old guest lists, it seems like they come every year, but I would love it if they were at AB 2014, too! :D
Vic Mignogna is really, really cool, and I would be psyched if he came, especially if he hosted a panel in addition to doing autographs. He has been in so many awesome animes, and I think people would be really excited to see him. So many of the characters he voices are so awesome! He would certainly be a big hit as a guest.
Travis Willingham would be an awesome guest, too. I loved him in FMA and Mushishi, and I'm sure people would be really excited if he came to AB 1014.
Also J. Michael Tatum! He is another super popular voice actor with lots of really great roles that I'm sure people would love to see.

Oh, for an art type guest, it would be really cool if some of the artists from CLAMP could come, because their manga is awesome, and popular, too. It would be really neat to have them autograph something, and maybe do a panel on some of their manga or something. I bet people would be very excited to see them. Or Hiromu Arakawa. FMA is a really great manga, in my opinion, and I would love to have her autograph one of my favorite volumes.

I think it is awesome that you guys are asking for suggestions, by the way! :D
Also, this isn't a suggestion for a specific guest, but it would be awesome if there could be an autograph session on Sunday in 2014 with a voice actor or two. I know that all depends on their schedule, but it would be nice if that were a possibility.

Well, I've got some idea's for guests, and I'm hoping that at least one I know can come.

Voice actors:
○ Johnny Yong Bosch
- Well known for his roles as: Ichigo Kurosaki from Bleach, Izaya Orihara from Durarara, Renton Thomson from Eureka Seven, and Lelouch Lamperouge from Code Geass.
If it helps any, I found his twitter on Behind the Voice Actors: http://twitter.com/#!/johnnyyongbosch xD

○ Luci Christian
Pretty well known for being Honey from Ouran High School Host Club, Alois Trancy from Black Butler 2, and Hungry from Hetalia.

○ Ikue Otani
I know this maybe a long shot but she's well known for being the voice of Ash's Pikachu and Toni Toni Chopper in one piece.

Musical guests:

How about the Leet Street Boys? They do a lot of anime/"otaku" related music and I think they would fit in very well in the con.

Some songs:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=189QSTKC5no

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXXycs9ToRI

And have you guys ever thought about bringing, if possible, a Vocaloid concert to AB? I think that would be huge.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fB9hWyaEkGc

Also, another long shot, but how about Kyary Pamyu Pamyu?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzC4hFK5P3g

Hmm.. I think that's it for me. x3

VA

1. Kate Higgins (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclo ... p?id=20166)
(http://www.katehiggins.com/)

She voiced characters in Bleach, Here Is Greenwood, SoulCalibur 5, etc.


Music

1. Buck-Tick (http://buck-tick.com/) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buck-Tick)

Buck-Tick's Gessekai song was used as the OP for Nightwalker.

2. Satsuki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satsuki_(musician) )
(satsuki-web.net) (https://twitter.com/Satsuki_Rociel)

Some of Satsuki's solo songs are anime-like and he contributed a song for a PSP game. I believe his former band Rentrer en Soi attended a few anime conventions before. That and I would love to meet him!

3. Kamijo (http://chateau-agency.com/kamijo/) (https://twitter.com/KamijoOfficial)

I know his former band Lareine did a cover of the Rose of Versailles OP.

Musical acts:

Yoko Kanno: I'm sure you already know who she is, but for anyone who doesn't - she is the mastermind composer behind music from MANY of our favorite anime and video games, including Cowboy Beebop, Ghost in the Shell: SAC, Wolf's Rain, Darker than Black, Ragnarok Online 2 and many more! Many people dream to work with her because she's extremely influential in the Japanese music scene, even for non-anime / geekery musicians.
Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yoko_Kanno

Steve Conte: An American musician, Steve Conte has worked extremely closely with Yoko Kanno and is the lead in many of her songs, including some of her most popular like "Stray", "Heaven's Not Enough", "Call Me, Call Me", and "Living Inside the Shell." He would be perfect to get alone because he could do probably an entire concert of just music from the many Anime he's worked on, or with Kanno herself for an incredible duet concert maybe? We can always dream ~ (he's also American so no language barrier! ;D)
Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Conte

Perfume: This band is undeniably huge in Japan! A three girl set who make the most adorable electro-pop music matched with dance moves and super fun outfits, they're frequently at the top of the charts and have started making their way international in the past few years! I don't believe they have been to the US yet, and as AB has set such a precedent for being the first US tour for so many musicians, I think this is the perfect chance!!
Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perfume_%28Japanese_band%29

Jinn: This band has a great upbeat rock sound, perfect for getting the crowd going at the concert! They have done work for the series' "Blood+" and "Code Geass" as well as have a plethora of other great material perfect for the con setting.
Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jinn_%28band%29


Other:

Angelic Pretty San Fransisco: Arguably the most popular Japanese Lolita fashion brand, Angelic Pretty has a store right here in San Fransisco! AP SF frequently goes to conventions in the US to be dealers as well as sometimes guests for fashion shows! I would absolutely adore to have them put one on for us! We need more Lolita in our (not so) little con!
Official Website: https://www.angelicpretty-usa.com/

Baby the Stars Shine Bright San Fransisco: Another extremely popular Lolita brand, Baby the Stars Shine Bright also has a store in SF! In a perfect world we could have a fashion show with both of these huge Japanese Lolita brands <3
Official Website: http://shop.baby-aatp.com/

Misako Aoki: Known as the "Ambassador of Kawaii," Misako is a famous Lolita model and huge within the Lolita and general Japanese fashion community. She frequently comes to the US to be a guest at conventions and other events, and she goes around spreading the joy of the "kawaii" way of life in Japan. She would also be a perfect pairing with Baby the Stars Shine Bright and Angelic Pretty as she frequently models for them!

Someone mentioned a vocaloid performance, and I know it would be packed and not sure how practical it could be, but maybe a Hatsune Miku performance? I would definitely check that out, even just once!

Baby the Stars Shine Bright San Fransisco: Another extremely popular Lolita brand, Baby the Stars Shine Bright also has a store in SF! In a perfect world we could have a fashion show with both of these huge Japanese Lolita brands <3
Official Website: http://shop.baby-aatp.com/

Misako Aoki: Known as the "Ambassador of Kawaii," Misako is a famous Lolita model and huge within the Lolita and general Japanese fashion community. She frequently comes to the US to be a guest at conventions and other events, and she goes around spreading the joy of the "kawaii" way of life in Japan. She would also be a perfect pairing with Baby the Stars Shine Bright and Angelic Pretty as she frequently models for them!

I actually think it would be amazing if we could invite BTSSB and Midori Fukusawa. Midori avidly watches anime and has been known to pose with other lolitas for current popular anime (and cosplay it!). She definitely would not be out of place at AB.

Example of her cosplaying and bungee jumping for Attack on Titan: http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2013/06/04-1/attack-on-titan-cosplay-bungee-jumping

suneohair
Goes by the stagename of suneohair; realname Watanabe Kenji. One man Japanese rock singer-songwriter. Has done opening/closing theme songs for many animes such as; Say I Love You, Hachimitsu to Clover, Waltz, Split, etc.
Ex. track: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukl-DdHoO80
OHP: http://www.suneohair.net/?aid=170
Company Page: http://www.starchild.co.jp/artist/suneohair/

Royz
A newer vkei band from BPRecords. Consists of 5 members. Their music focuses around the theme of stars and feathers. Recently had their third anniversary. Have not performed overseas yet but they plan to in time. Them attending Anime Boston would be good way to begin an overseas debut and would bring a lot of new attention to them.
Ex. track: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=euTgtIdJPTQ
OHP: http://royz-web.net/?aid=256

Nightmare/Naitomea
Vkei band from HPQ (Avex Network). Their songs "Alumina" and "The World" featured in Death Note were what brought their first major fame. I don't believe they've went overseas yet.
Ex. track: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7MMMNTQ7H0
OHP: http://www.nightmare-web.com/pc

I would like to have Girugamesh (AB '11) back too.

edit*-
and since we had IBI and MINT the past two years, I thought it'd be a good idea to recommend GASHICON too.

I know I already posted a bunch of suggestions, but I forgot to say that I hope Micah Solusod comes back again! I missed getting his autograph this year, and I would love to have the chance to in 2014! Soul Eater is so popular I'm sure people would love it if he came back again.

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see Fighting Dreamers Productions from Canada come.
They are a great group of cos players as well as a you tube sensation. Lucas Wilson speaks for the transgendered community out there.

As far as music I would live to see the band EyeShine

Micah Solusod was a pretty funny and chill dude. I'd love to see him again too.

Definitely want the Toonami crew to come (I know they're interested in doing conventions if they're invited).

Michael J. Tatum [i loved meeting him when he went last time he was super nice!]

Voice Actors

Let's see...David Matranga told everyone else who came to his intro panel he wouldn't mind coming back. Best ask him sooner than later I suppose?

David Hayter would be awesome. He's not working on the next Metal Gear Solid title in the works so hopefully that helps with availability.

Ask Greg Ayers to bring Luci Christian back with him next year. You know they're good friends XD

I would love to see Caitlin Glass back next year as well =D

Can Clarke is another popular choice but I'll throw his name out there too.

Please post here your suggestions for Anime Boston 2014 Guests of Honor.

5. We are serious when we ask you not to invite guests for us. This includes asking a potential guest "If they would be interested in going to Anime Boston if invited" or similar questions.



Can I ask why not in this case? What's to stop me from personally inviting "an unknown" as a personal guest if I want? If someone from the industry wants to go to AB and not be on AB's Official Guest List they have the right to do that.

For example purposes, let's say I've done voice acting work for Namco, Capcom and Funimation. I decide I want to go to Anime Boston with friends but don't want to be a guest of honor. I understand I don't get the perks those on the official guest list enjoy and even though I personally know some of the people on the official guest list I decide I don't want to be on it for whatever reason. That's on me.

Now let's say I didn't know about Anime Boston but hear about it from fans of my work. I get in touch with Anime Boston but since the official guest list is set in stone and it's a week until Anime Boston it's too late to slot me in as a Guest of Honor. I decide to go anyway and pay to attend the con much to everyone's surprise, creating a bit of chaos from my "unplanned arrival". It's not like you can ask me to leave since I paid to admission fee and am attending as a regular congoer, yes?

If both scenarios actually did happen I would expect AB to respect my decision to come as a regular attendee and not a Guest of Honor. Otherwise I'd tell my friends in the industry you can only go on their terms. That's basically what this is telling me. I get the "don't invite potential guests on our behalf" thing but this...that's a personal decision just like they can say "No thanks" if asked by AB directly.

A friendly tip: Don't assume everyone who says they personally know someone in the industry is lying about who they know. I found out the hard way this year and last year.

I just got back from Otakon 2013 and i have to say Otakon blew it out of the water. they bring in alot of amazing guests like TM Revolution, Home Made kuzoku. Their voice actor list was fanominal as well. Crispin Freeman, Todd Haberkorn, Yoko Kanno,Vic Mignogna and Cristina Vee to name a few. i think anime boston need to step up their game cause the past few years was eh. or are you serious?? i dunno it just my opinion but otakon is alot better with bringing in guest then anime boston. If there is no good guest for anime boston 2014 i might just skip the whole con and save up for otakon again.

Musical Guest - ALI PROJECT

They've done various openings and endings for anime, and have plenty of other j-rock albums besides. They performed in concert at Sakuracon back in 2008, too.

It's a longshot, but might as well try. x3

I'd love to see some classic seiyuu such as:

Masako Nozawa
Mayumi Tanaka
Ryo Horikawa
Toshio Furukawa

I'd love to see Haruko Momoi return. Fantasy musical guests would include JAM Project, Nana Mizuki, or a small group of AKB48 members.

I would love to see wife and husband cosplay team of Malindachan (http://malindachan.deviantart.com/)and Ex-Shadow! (http://ex-shadow.deviantart.com/) They are wonderful cosplayers and could do a few panels or help judge events! Same goes with the Fighting Dreamers Pro cosplay group (and if not the whole group just Twinfools and VandorWolf) (http://www.youtube.com/user/fightingdreamerspro)! (◡‿◡✿)

It would be super exciting if any of them were to come!~~
