Japanese Guest Suggestions (Non-Musical) for Anime Boston 2019

Post by Chairman Miaow » Sat Jul 14, 2018 10:38 am

This thread is for Non-Musical Japanese Guest Suggestions Only.
To request a Japanese Musical Guest, please go to this thread.

If you have someone you'd like to see as a Japanese Guest at Anime Boston 2019, please use this thread to make your suggestion.

Here's some guidelines to keep in mind:

When suggesting a Japanese guest, please give us their name and not just what shows they've been in or their character names. Linking to their Wikipedia, Anime News Network, or Facebook page is a big help.

Keep in mind that even though someone may make a great Japanese guest, there are a number of factors that go into the Guest of Honor selection process including - but not limited to - availability, scheduling conflicts, travel expenses, and logistics.

This is a suggestion thread, not a nomination or voting process; posts seconding and agreeing with suggestions may be removed to keep the thread focused on the suggestions themselves.

No matter how enthusiastic you are, do not ask someone if they'd be interested in attending Anime Boston as a Guest. Sometimes when a potential guest is contacted by fans about attending Anime Boston it can be misinterpreted it as an official invitation from the convention itself. This can lead to confusion, mixed signals, and disappointment for everyone. These situations can actually backfire and hurt the convention's chances to have a guest attend.

Thank you.
