    Ichibancon 2014 Report!

    Two years ago, my knowledge of anime was limited to three facts: (1) it was made in Japan, (2) the characters had weird hair and eyes, and (3) my daughter was obsessed with it. She would emerge from her room after a weekend binge, hair wild, eyes bloodshot–looking like a character herself, actually–and I would think, “What does she see in those shows?”

    Then I watched Fullmetal Alchemist, then Death Note, then Black Butler, and I thought, “OK, these are pretty cool.” So cool, in fact, that I took my daughter to Ichibancon 3, my first anime convention, in 2012. We are now back from Ichibancon 5, held January 9-12 in Concord, NC, a suburb of Charlotte. It has grown a lot since our first year–bigger hotel, more dealers, more fans, and three days instead of two. Last year, for instance, there were 2-3 arcade games in the hallway. This year, a room was devoted to Street Fighter, Technika 3, Versus City, Dance Dance Revolution Extreme, Guitar Freaks, and about a dozen Playstations and Xbox 360s.

    There were also more guests than before. J. Michael Tatum, Bryce Papenbrook, Cherami Leigh, Jad Sexton, and Chuck Huber all had Q & A sessions following by autograph signings. I sat in on Bryce’s Saturday Q & A, which had about 100 attendees in a ballroom that seated nearly 400. Respectable, but not great. Afterward, five or six people left, and about 300 streamed in. Soon cosplayers were standing against the walls and out the doors, waiting for the weekend’s headliner, Vic Mignogna.

    Vic is the Johnny Depp of anime. I had seen him at previous conventions, and each time I was amazed at how good he was with fans. He talks to them like old friends, lets girls hug him, and signs anything you wave in his face. In his Q & A, he showed the energy and improv skills of a young Robin Williams. Someone asked him–they always ask him–for his advice to aspiring voice actors, and it was this: (1) get as much experience as you can acting, (2) move to one of the best cities for voice actors–Los Angeles, New York, Houston, Dallas, or Vancouver–and (3) find a way to feed yourself. (Voice actors don’t exactly make it rain.)

    Ichibancon was fun, and I was glad to see it growing. In March, I am headed to Winston-Salem to the Triad Anime Con, which is operated by the same company, Nostalgiaconventions. Maybe I’ll see you there!

    VIZ Media announces the voice cast of the highly anticipated VAMPIRE KNIGHT anime series!

    VAMPIRE KNIGHT animated series is based on the best-selling gothic-romance manga created by Matsuri Hino. The story takes place at The Cross Academy, attended by two groups of students: the Day Class and the Night Class. At twilight, when the students of the Day Class return to their dorm, they cross paths with the Night Class on their way to school. Yuki and Zero Kiryu are the Guardians of the school protecting the Day Class from the Academy’s dark secret: the Night Class is full of vampires!

    Yuki Cross, the adoptive daughter of the headmaster of Cross Academy, is played by Mela Lee. Veteran anime voice actor Vic Mignogna plays Zero Kiryu, a student who is a year older than Yuki Cross and comes from a family of vampire hunters. Finally, Ethan Murray portrays Kaname Kuran, a pure blooded vampire and the current Head of the Kuran Clan, the president of the Night Class.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    St. Augustine, FL – June 26, 2009 – EXP Con adds Steve Downes, voice of Halo’s Master Chief, Vic Mignogna, and Troy Baker to guest list.

    EXP Con: North Florida’s Video Game and Japanese Animation Convention

    EXP Con has been determined to bring the fans of video games and Japanese animation some of the biggest names from the industry, and so far this year is no exception.

    We are proud to announce as a Guest of Honor for EXP Con 2009 Steve Downes, the voice of iconic video game character Master Chief of the Halo series. Fans will get a chance to meet the man behind the mask at EXP Con 2009 for one of his rare convention appearances. He also works as the morning disc jockey for 97.1 WDRV “The Drive” in Chicago, Illinois.

    Making his first trip over to the North Florida area is popular voice actor of both anime and video game fame, Vic Mignogna. Vic has been acting for stage and screen since he was 8 years old. But he started his career in anime about ten years ago as Vega in Streetfighter II. Since then Vic has been in more than a hundred shows, known for such roles as Edward Elric in Fullmetal Alchemist, Tamaki Suou in Ouran High School Host Club, Fai in Tsubasa Chronicle, Dark in DN Angel, Kurz in Full Metal Panic, Broly in Dragonball Z, Kougaijji in Saiyuki, Ikkaku in Bleach, Yukito in Air, Takanaga in Wallflower, Tatsu in Peacemaker, Luciano in Code Geass, Virgil Walsh in Trinity Blood, Hikaru in Macross and many more. Vic has also voiced roles in a large number of video games including Soul Calibur, Disgaea, Persona III, Project Sylpheed, DBZ, Bleach, FMA and more. But even longer than his voice acting, Vic has been a professional music composer / singer / producer who has written and produced hundreds of songs for TV, radio and CD. He sings the themes for shows like One Piece & DBGT, and has produced several CDs of his own original music. And finally, in addition to anime and music, Vic has a degree in film and works regularly writing, producing and directing video and film productions.

    Also joining the guest list for his first Florida convention appearance is another popular voice over artist, Troy Baker. A native of Dallas, Texas, Troy first began working as an actor in TV and Radio commercials. He quickly became a mainstay voice actor of the anime community with such roles as “Frank Archer” in Full Metal Alchemist, “Abel Nightroad” in Trinity Blood, “Gennosuke” in Basilisk and “Action Bastard” in Shin Chan. Troy can also be heard in lead roles for blockbuster video game titles like Kanji Tatsumi in Persona 4 (Atlus), Yuri Lowell in Tales of Vesperia (namco), Red Faction: Guerrilla (Volition), the Brothers In Arms Franchise (Ubisoft), Ghostbusters: The Video Game (Atari),Bloodrayne 2 (Majesco), Aeon Flux (Majesco), Resistance 2 (Insomniac), Trauma Center:New Blood (Atlus), and Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures (FunCom).

    Other guests whom will be in attendance are Guest of Honor Terrance Carson, voice of God of War’s Kratos, artists Ashley “AnimeBelle” Clark and Heather Scott of Dragonmun Studios, cosplayer CJ “Kefka” Collins, comedy troupe aniRAGE, and bands The Man Power and Random Encounter. The guest list is in for many more exciting surprises in the near future.

    About EXP Con: EXP Convention is a weekend long all ages event to be held at the Renaissance Resort at World Golf Village’s St. John’s County Convention Center. The main purpose of EXP Con is to celebrate and promote American and Japanese video gaming, Japanese animation also known as anime, manga which are Japanese graphic novels, cosplay which is the act of creating and modeling costumes based on characters from Japanese and American media, and other facets of Japanese culture.

    The first EXP Convention which carried the tagline of “North Florida’s Video Game and Anime Convention” was a weekend-long event which occupied all of and took place in World Golf Village’s Renaissance Resort and St. John’s County Convention Center during the weekend of October 17-19 2008. Last year’s participants were given the opportunity to meet popular industry guests such as Steve Blum, Beau Billingslea, and Johnny Yong Bosch, take part in fun and informative industry and fan driven panels related to their interests, free play and compete in tournaments in our 5,000 square foot video game lounge filled with 40 consoles and 40 high definition televisions, view both old and new Japanese media screenings, and attend multiple fan and industry driven events such as stage shows, fashion shows, contests, and live music. In the event’s inaugural year an attendance of close to 1,000 was achieved, which was no small feat for a first time event.
