Several New Guests Announced for Anime Boston 2017

Anime Boston, the largest anime convention in New England, has announced several new guests to appear at the Hynes Convention Center, Boston, Mass, on March 31 through April 2, 2017.

Kyle Colby Jones has been in the anime industry as a director, writer, producer, and actor since 2007. He began his dubbing career at ADV Films and currently works at Sentai Filmworks.

Some of his more notable recent anime series include Akame ga Kill, Parasyte, My Love Story, Log Horizon, Monthly Girls Nozaki-kun, No Game No Life, Fate/kaleid, Gatchaman Crowds, Outbreak Company, Muv-Luv, Super Sonico, Sunday Without God, and Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon.

Kyle has directed several classic titles as well, including Saint Seiya, Air, Kanon, Madlax, Kino’s Journey, Diamond Daydreams, Phi-Brain, and the stupendously amazing Papuwa.

Bryson Baugus is a voice actor, singer, and stage actor from Texas. He has worked primarily with Sentai Filmworks in Houston, and his credits include Child Gelsadra in Gatchaman Crowds Insight, Young Suna in My Love Story, Akutagawa in When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace, and Hikaru in RE: Hamatora. His voice has also been used in the shows Chaika – The Coffin Princess, Dramatical Murder, Log Horizon 2, and Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun.  He was just recently announced as the voice of Bell in Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon and Kou Mukami in Diabolik Lovers II: More Blood.  This is his first convention appearance.

Greg Ayres has spent the last fourteen years working in an industry he had admired for years as a fan. With over 200 credits to his name, this fan-boy has managed to get to play a variety of characters that are almost as colorful as his hair. He’s thrilled to splash into the role of Nagisa Haruki in Free Eternal Summer, and equally as excited to “kill” as MonoKuma in Danganronpa, and Doug in Gangsta.

He was thrilled to be a part of the Toonami re-launch in the roles of Ganta Igarashi in Deadman Wonderland, and Heihachi Hayashida in Samurai 7, and even more thrilled to follow that up with the following summer’s thriller Another as Kouichi Sakakibara.  His most recent roles include Frost in Dragon Ball Z Xenoverse 2, Clear in Dramatical Murder, Satoru Asahina in From the New World, Kenji Nakanishi in Say I Love You, Sion in No. 6, Heisuke Toudou in Hakuoki, Tommyrod in Toriko, Arikawa in This Boy Can Fight Aliens, Tomoki Sakurai in Heaven’s Lost Property, and Volken in the Book of Bantorra.

Lisa Ortiz is a New York based veteran voice actor, director, and producer. Her career as a voice over artist began under the shroud of an attempted auto larceny gone awry.  No really, ask her yourself.  She’ll tell you.

She is most well known for her roles as Lina Inverse in Slayers and Amy Rose in Sonic the Hedgehog, but she began her career as the high elf Deedlit in Record of Lodoss War. Since then she has gone on to record dozens of anime, series, audio books, video games, and films both as a voice and as a Producer, Director, and Adapter.

She is currently the director of Pokemon XY and has worked on the show in various capacities over the years since the Indigo League. From Misty’s older sister Daisy, to Sabrina, to Flannery, to Oshawatt, to Fletchling, Litten, and present day gym leader Korrina.

She can currently be heard as Noembelu in Street Fighter V, as well as on the Nickelodeon Show Royal Academy, amongst others. Her favorite roles include: Serenity Wheeler in Yu-gi-oh; Tony Tony Chopper in One Piece; Shiori in Revolutionary Girl Utena; Rina in Time of Eve; The Devil in Gangstar 4; Musa/Icy in Winx Club; Azalyn in The Irresponsible Captain Tylor; and Tsubasa Shibahime in His and Her Circumstances.

Shingo Natsume has directed many anime, including television series Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei and the theatrical film Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos.

He has also directed Hori-san to Miyamura-kun, Space Dandy, and One Punch Man.  His latest directorial work is ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept.

“Natsume-san is the director of two of the hottest titles in the past few years, Space Dandy and One Punch Man. We’re honored to have the opportunity to present Natsume-san to his fans in Boston, and to give them the opportunity to talk to him!” said Victor Lee, Convention Chairman.

Robbie Daymond is a Native-American Voice Artist, Actor, and Performer based in Los Angeles. He works in traditional animation, anime, commercials, film, television, audiobooks, and videogames for companies such as: Nickelodeon, Disney, Warner Brothers, Cartoon Network, Discovery Kids, NBC, 20th Century Fox, Marvel, Bang Zoom!, Lucas Films, Activision, Square Enix, Volition Games, Studiopolis, VIZ, Aniplex, SyFy, Random House, and many more.

After booking his first major anime role in 2014 as Tuxedo Mask in Sailor Moon, he has had the opportunity to play several lead and supporting roles in anime series such as: Mumen Rider in One Punch Man, Mitsuki in Boruto, Joe Kido in Digimon Adventure tri., and Ren Tsuruga in Skip Beat.  He can also be heard in: Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, The Seven Deadly Sins, Naruto Shippuden, Tales of Zestiria the X, Cyborg 009, K, Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Sword Art Online 2, Magi; the Adventures of Sinbad, Durarara!!x2, Charlotte, Lupin the Third, Aldnoah Zero, Your Lie in April, Glitter Force, Rock Lee & His Ninja Pals, and he continues to reprise his role of Mamoru in Sailor Moon Crystal. There are also a few others coming up that he can’t mention quite yet…

“I’ve spoken to Robbie several times, all over the country. A talented actor, he’s also one of warmest people I’ve ever met, and his fans are going to love him! It’s exciting to finally have him here, at Anime Boston!” said Victor Lee, Convention Chair.

Patrick Seitz is primarily known for his work as the guy who yells out “Super Electromagnetic Shrapnel Cannon!” in Code Geass. Seitz’s body of other, lesser work stretches back to the year 2000. When he’s not busy playing Love Live: School Idol Festival, Patrick Seitz gets paid to voice guys who A) yell a lot, B) wear an eyepatch, C) have an accent, or D) sport a cool haircut. Have your doubts? His anime credits include: Gamagoori from Kill la Kill; Dio from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure; Franky from One Piece; Laxus from Fairy Tail; Keith from Attack on Titan; Motochika from Sengoku Basara; Senji from Deadman Wonderland; Isshin and Kenpachi from Bleach; Germany from Hetalia; Agni from Black Butler; Simon from Durarara!!; Kunzite from Sailor Moon; Sky High from Tiger & Bunny; Luke Valentine from Hellsing and Hellsing: Ultimate; and JP from Redline. Grimmer from Monster; and Nekozawa from Ouran High School Host Club don’t really fit any of those categories, but they’re cool, so they’re on the list!

On the video game side of the equation, Patrick’s credits include: Helvar in For Honor; Hector and Draug in Fire Emblem: Heroes; Ragna in the BlazBlue series; Garrosh Hellscream and Arthas Menethil in World of Warcraft; Scorpion in the last few Mortal Kombat games; Artanis in StarCraft II; Kog’Maw, Lucian, and Renekton in League of Legends; Kana Rua in Pillars of Eternity; Basilio in Fire Emblem: Awakening; Samson in Skullgirls; Chopin in Eternal Sonata; Riptide, Hot Head and Chomp Chest in the Skylanders series; and create-a-character voices in Dragon Ball Xenoverse; and The Sims 4.

Added Victor Lee, ”We’re happy to have Patrick at Anime Boston again so soon! His involvement with some of the most important titles in anime and in video games, makes him one of the true greats in the industry!”
