wow! First time he's back in what, 13 years? I remember seeing him at UChi-Con a few years back, and the question was brought up if he was ever going back to ACen. Glad to see schedules worked out this time!

Glad to have him back! I met him the first time I went to ACen. Back then, I only knew him as Zelgadis from Slayers.

Cool! As I research more about Crispin Freeman, I'm starting to see what anime and television shows I have seen and heard his voice in. I wonder what you will announce next!

He will be doing panels, but I'm sorry to say his mythology panel (which is excellent!) is not one of them. There may be one that comes close, though.

Is there a particular reason why he is not doing the mythology panel at ACen this year? I was just curious.

This seriously just made my day. Crispin Freeman is one of my top VAs of all time, and I've been dying for a chance to see him at a convention. I'm not usually one for waiting in line for hours or an autograph, but this will certainly be my exception! Thank you guys so much for signing him on to ACen!!!

Wonder if we can get him to sing some opera since he did sing for a short time as a kid at the Lyric. Shame about the mythology panel, but I'll be happy to hear his thoughts on various things. By the way I'm really happy about this, and I hope he does talk some about Miyazaki and his thoughts on The wind also rises and the Legend of Princess Kagua.

I rarely follow voice actors. I have to see them or hear them pop up a lot in the things I watch in order to actually notice them (I'm the same with live action actors too - I often pay attention to the acting rather than the actor) but Crispin Freeman is actually one of the names that I noticed. I DIDN'T KNOW HE WAS SO YOUNG!!!

He has voiced a lot of roles that I really liked so I had a hard time trying to decide which DVD series to bring. After much consideration, I decided that Witch Hunter Robin wins the cake. I love the characters he's portrayed but Amon has always had a soft spot in my heart and I am super eager to have him sign my DVD series. ^_^
