Japanese Guest Suggestions (Non-Musical) for Anime Boston 2018

Post by Chairman Miaow » Fri Jul 14, 2017 4:25 pm

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 2018, 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.
Matt Miller (It's pronounced as one word)
Assistant Director of Guest Relations 2017 - present

Oh, YES, I would love that so much. I would bring my Hatoful dakimakura if that happens.
I would also like to suggest Yasunori Mitsuda because I want to see him in person at least once in my life. He may be best known for his work on the Chrono Trigger soundtrack, but that was the first soundtrack he did. Plenty of great stuff since then. Also an interesting guy.

I think it would be cool to have Sayo Yamamoto (director of Yuri!!! On Ice) and Mitsurou Kubo (co-writer of Yuri!!! On Ice, and mangaka). They've been to other cons in the US, so they might be interested in coming up to good ole' New England :) Hopefully the weather won't scare any guests away...

My suggestion for a Japanese guest would be Akuno-P. He is a vocaloid producer and light novel author who is credited with creating one of the most popular vocaloid songs (The Servant of Evil) as well as a comprehensive song series with over 50 songs known as Evillious Chronicles. He has created many light novels and manga based on said Evillious Chronicles including the Aku no Taizai series, the Aku no Musume series, and many more.

I'd like to additionally suggest Ichika, who has illustrated a majority of the PVs, manga, and light novels written by Akuno-P.

I'd like to add my support for Yuki Kaji and Hato Moa. As a general note, I'd be interested in seeing panels featuring manga creators, light novel authors, or editors of manga and light novels (though I do know how busy their schedules are!).

If I can suggest one, Hitoshi Ariga, who was the author of Rockman Megamix and Gigamix, and someone who designed a few Pokemon for the games.

So just throwing this out there. It maybe short notice now (it may not) so just noted for next year, possibly. A certain Canadian voice talent just opened up his schedule for cons again, via Twitter (https://twitter.com/richardiancox/statu ... 15264?s=21) This talent is, of course, Richard Ian Cox.

Notable roles include:
Allelujah Haptism - Mobile Suit Gundam 00
Burnerman - Megaman: NT Warrior
Pietro Lensherr/Quicksilver - X-Men Evolution (non-anime)
and of course,
Inuyasha - Inuyasha
……just to name a few ;) :)
Wrong thread, pal. This is for Japanese guest suggestions ;)
