Mary Elizabeth portrayed Major Motoko Kusanagi in Ghost In The Shell Innocence, Solid State Society, and Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex for which she won the American Anime Award for Best Actress. Some of her other popular roles are Cornelia in Code Geass, Kurenai from Naruto, Julia from Cowboy Bebop, Zanpakuto from Bleach, Helba and Bordeau from .hack, Jagura from Wolf’s Rain, Nuriko in Fushigi Yuugi, and Caroline from Vampire Hunter D.

“Mary Elizabeth McGlynn has one of the most recognizable voices in anime. Female heroes have long had a prominent place in anime and Mary’s portrayal of Major Kusanagi in the Ghost in the Shell series stands as the most iconic,” said Victor Lee, Convention Chair.

With literally hundreds of V/O credits to his name, Veteran Voice Monkey Steve Blum is best known as the voice of Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop, the villain Amon in Legend of Korra, Wolverine from several incarnations of X-Men, Orochimaru, Zabuza, and others from Naruto, Vincent Valentine from Final Fantasy VII, Leeron from Gurren Lagann, Storm Troopers and many others in most of the Star Wars games, dozens of Digimon, and a gigantic list of other characters from Anime, Video Games, TV and Film.

Added Victor Lee, “What more can be said about Steve Blum? If you watched anime, you’ve heard his voice. If you don’t think you’ve heard his voice, you’ve probably heard his voice. It’s been too long since Steve was last in Boston!”
