Japanese Guest Suggestions (Non-Musical) for Anime Boston 2022

Post by Chairman Miaow »

Hi everyone! Long time no see!

As we are getting ready for Anime Boston 2022(!) we're looking to hear your suggestions once again.
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 2022, 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.

Not sure if I should post this in the Japanese or Non-Japanese thread, but Hololive?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hololive_Production

https://hololive.wiki/wiki/Hololive_English
https://virtualyoutuber.fandom.com/wiki ... h_.28EN.29

Hololive is a primarily-Japanese agency of "idol" vtubers (streamers who essentially play a character by puppeting an anime avatar, rather than show their face on stream). The agency itself is situated in Tokyo Japan, but they have members scattered all over the world (including a full English-speaking branch), and due to the nature of what they do, travel isn't necessarily a concern. Generally, the panels work by having them stream into the convention from their homes, since being physically at the convention makes the anonymity of being a vtuber more complicated (though it has been done before).

The members have asked that fans reach out to any conventions we want them to come to and let them know there's interest. I got to attend 2 panels at Fan Expo Boston a few months ago with several Hololive English -Myth- members, and I would love if Anime Boston could host one or more similar panels. The Hololive English -Council- group also hosted a panel at AnimeNYC in the main auditorium that managed to fill to capacity, seating at least 2,000 people. So obviously there's ample interest.

Since food seems to be the theme still - I am kinda partial to the Cast of Food Wars:

Yoshitsugu Matsuoka - Soma (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yoshitsugu_Matsuoka),

Risa Taneda - Erina (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Risa_Taneda),

Minami Takahashi - Megumi (https://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/Minami-Takahashi/),

Chinatsu Akasaki - Alice (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinatsu_Akasaki),

Rikiya Koyama - Joichiro (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rikiya_Koyama) or

Banjō Ginga - Senzaemon, plus the legendary other projects he has been apart of including Mobile Suit Gundam as Gihren Zabi & far too many more! (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banj%C5%8D_Ginga).
"Thou who art darker than even darkness,
Thou who art deeper than even the night!
Thou, the Sea of Chaos, who drifts upon it,
Golden Lord of Darkness!
Hereby I call to thee,
Hereby I swear before thee!
Those who would stand against us,
All those who are fools,
By the power you and I possess,
Grant destruction equally upon them all!
GIGA SLAVE!"
