Regarding the group of Japanese guests, well, I was hoping for the announcement of that to happen over the weekend, but we didn't get the info we needed and now it's Golden Week. Hopefully we can at least get approval to make the announcement with what we have.

Other than them, there are a couple more guests who are just about finalized. At this point, I'm calling everyone a straggler, but no less impactful (hmph, didn't realize impactful's not really a word)...

Well I guess I'll just sit back and wait again lol. I was just worried that that announcement would be the last one.

Final guests are *finally* coming in!

-Michael Sinterniklaas (of Venture Bros., Gundam UC, Eden of the East, Sengoku Basara among many others)
-Stephanie Sheh (from K-ON!, Gundam UC, Bleach, Haruhi, and Eureka Seven)

Our final three Japanese guests that we've got are...well Hetalia-related anyhow.

I'm hoping one guest is Daisuke Namikawa(Italy), since he voiced Speedor in Engine Sentai Go-Onger... ^_^ Plus he was the creepy 'Kami-sama' guy in the Saiyuki Reload anime. *hopes* May have to get a glimpse of Hetalia, even though I have no idea what it's about other than countries-personified... >_>;;;

I should ask - does Acen have a decent autograph page in their schedule booklets? I'll have something for pretty much every guest to sign - posters, etc, but for one or two, there just isn't signable merchandise for the show(s) I like, so...

Usually they do, though I've had times where the guest just signed where their profile is in the book.

Ooo yay, Stephanie Sheh! ^^ And Hetalia-related guests? Very awesome!
I agree with wanting Daisuke Namikawa (although I'd be kinda wanting to meet him because he played Fai in TRC) - that would be really awesome. ^^

...Hetalia-related Japanese guests? adajdjajcsjfjasjfAJFDJSHFHSHFAHCFAH hello. These are my hopes. They just shot through the roof.
South Korea likes breasts.
Ukraine has breasts.
She has them in spades.
If South Korea and Ukraine were to hook up...
Then South Korea would never have a shortage of breasts ever again.

Pfft. Okay, every time I read "Hetalia" I see "Hentai." :lol:

Is h.naoto having a panel, or just a fashion show? I'd love his autograph...

I tried for Namikawa, no luck unfortunately =(

It is more on the production side this time, believe me when I say we really tried for some VA's, perhaps is some bad luck or bad timing.

It's alright, the production side is still cool. We appreciate all the hard work that everyone does to bring guests here to Acen.

But I'm trying not to mention the names of people who wanna siphon attention. You like the hype but pretending you're part of the picture, won't pass. You're like a high school dropout, no class. You can say what you want about me. Keep talking while I'm walking away" - Fort Minor

Anyone know if h.naoto has a panel or anything in addition to the fashion show itself?

Also, any mods know if a schedule will be posted online before the con? I'm hoping to look at one ahead of time so I can do some planning.

Oh nice group, it's always interesting to hear how they adapted a comic with so much of a sterotype and what had to be left on the cutting room floor.
