If Vic Mignogna and Travis Willingham are there for Dodgeball/Risemball if I have the time I'll say, "Get a bottle of water and some snacks, I ain't gonna' miss this dodgeball grudge match."

If I can I may even take some pictures for my blog.

I wouldn't want to miss that either; if they really were willing to do it again I'd even swap sides and say let's try to get them. :D  But I don't think it's going to happen. I could only Google up references to them participating in the one at MTAC three years ago, although I found loads of forums where people were hopefully suggesting it or where they organized games in which VM/TW didn't participate.

I suspect that, being reasonably intelligent folks, they've been turning down requests because otherwise cons will expect them to do it at every appearance. And VM's wording choice might be telling, when he wrote the song "The Legend of Middle Tennessee" about his Rangers' epic victory over The Skirts at MTAC - if a legend happens all the time, it stops being a legend.
This is my serious voice. Otherwise, I'm just another anime fan, not a moderator.

Hey Dawn! Congrats on Re-election! (was not able to make the meeting due to work and a broken car...)

I know I mentioned it before con this year, and Sandi sent you an email, the CS Staff that did Anime Evolution talked with Scott McNeil some and asked if he'd be interested in ever doing Kcon. He seemed interested at the time, and said to contact him about it. We also talked to Brad Swaile and he replied similarly. I'm fairly sure that most of the CS would be willing to do panels with either of them or get them involved in our various story games.

I do understand that they are both pretty big names, and have busy schedules (Brad says he normally goes camping with his family around Labor Day), so no pressure!

But those are my votes.

I've already recommended among others Scott McNeil, I think he'd make Kumoricon fun. I've seen some Youtube footage of him at other conventions and he definitely seems like someone who would bring some serious positive vibes to the convention.

There ya go. His list of roles is waaaaaaay too long to post; he appears to have been in just about everything. (^_^)

(Sorry, mini-rant: I'd highly recommend ANN to ya instead of IMDB. The cross-links they provide make it ridiculously easy to find out where you've heard XYZ voice before, when someone sounds familiar. Or to find new anime that has the same VA, for the occasions when you really love someone's voice. And unlike Wikipedia, they're not spoiler-laden.)

    * Pokémon - Archie, Cyrus, Lucario,Christopher (Additional Voices)


Technically, Cyrus was recorded under PUI since the show switched companies some years ago.

But holy cow that was an amazing performance. I know people make fun of it for the over-the-topness, but when you get down to it, it suited the character PERFECTLY to overact like that, given that it's implied in the various canons that his "emotionlessness" is the only way he can *control* his emotions.

Plus I want to ask Schemmel if he threw up recording that screaming [Mod edit by JeffT: Removed inappropriate language] in the ruins.

Hmm... How 'bout TehExorcist? He's an amateur voice actor and creator of the popular anime parody "D.Gray-Man: The Abridged Series."
http://www.youtube.com/user/TehExorcist

From my knowledge, he lives dangerously close to the Portland area, and was at Kumoricon for the past two years as a regular attendee.
I think that he would be easy to get, be lots of fun, and draw in a relatively nice crowd. (:

I'd like to recommend a great guy known as Todd Haberkorn. I have been waiting for five whole years of my life just to go to an anime convention and finally I have my chance. I am begging on my knees to please bring this talented voice actor to Kumoricon. I have been what feels like my whole life just to meet this man, and I've seen him attend many many conventions. I think he'd really bring this convention to life, and really brighten the room up. Please, if you're able to get this guy to come I will be the happiest person alive, words just can't describe how much this would mean to me.

I also would like to recommend Todd Haberkorn as a guest for 2010's Kumoricon. Please, if you could at least invite him, I think he really might come. He's got lots of fans, and I think that if he was at the con, more people really would come. I know I and my friends would come for sure then. He's also really great with fans, very nice, and I know he'd love to come.

He was the voice of Allen Walker (D. Gray Man), Hikaru (Ouran High School), Watanuki (xxxHolic), Yamato (Suzuka), Sergeant Frog, Death the Kid (Soul Eater) and so many others. I really think it would help the con's reputation if we could get such a famous voice actor to come, and then maybe other voice actors from FUNimation would come, too. This is the way we can compete with Sakuracon and the L.A. conventions. So, if you could, please invite him, because I think the convention would be even more amazing if he was there!

I really think it would help the con's reputation if we could get such a famous voice actor to come, and then maybe other voice actors from FUNimation would come, too. This is the way we can compete with Sakuracon and the L.A. conventions.

By no means is this an impossible goal but I think it should be noted that this is probably primarily an issue of funding not of reputation. Don't get your hopes up too much.

This is the way we can compete with Sakuracon and the L.A. conventions. So, if you could, please invite him, because I think the convention would be even more amazing if he was there!

Oh hun! We aren't competing with Sakura-con and the L.A. Conventions per se... they are INDUSTRY conventions, and we are a FAN-BASED convention. Industry conventions get the big names because they have the industry making or assisting with the content. For the most part, our content is by fans, for fans. The difference makes it possible for people to go to things like Anime Expo or Sac-Con or Sak AND go to Kumoricon! Because you get a different flavor of convention with us! While I agree, todd is amazing with fans and a fun convention guest, there are many more factors besides popularity that go into picking a convention guest of honor. Where he's from, if he's available, and what his needs are as a guest. The availability one is quite possibly the BIGGEST issue for most V.A.'s...they are ALWAYS working! ^_^

But I guess this means I need to update my mondo list... meh... I'll do it tomorrow when I am not in FacLiai mode.... I'm too hyped up on hotel nonsense to think about much else... oh, that and fraggle rock!

Sean Schemmel would be really cool. ^^" He's the voice of Goku and King Ki in DragonBall Z (along with GT)

Caitlin Glass. She dubbed Haruhi from Ouran and Winry from FullMetal Alchemist.

Travis Willingham also known as Roy Mustang from FullMetal Alchemist

Aaron Dismuke dubbed the english Alphonse in FullMetal Alchemist and Mori-Senpai in Ouran.

My number one request would be Todd Haberkorn please! I'm always seeing him attend millions of conventions, I say he would be a great choice for 2010!!   I think he'd be thrilled! He would be my only reason to go to this if you could get him to come. Allen Walker is my fave character of all time, and he is the guy who voices his character. I will love you guys forever if you request him!  (Sorry I'm a family member, never knew the rules said anything about 1 request per family...we are each our own individuals and should have the right to speak our own opinion)

I'd like to recommend a great guy known as Todd Haberkorn. I have been waiting for five whole years of my life just to go to an anime convention and finally I have my chance. I am begging on my knees to please bring this talented voice actor to Kumoricon. I have been what feels like my whole life just to meet this man, and I've seen him attend many many conventions. I think he'd really bring this convention to life, and really brighten the room up. Please, if you're able to get this guy to come I will be the happiest person alive, words just can't describe how much this would mean to me.

I also would like to recommend Todd Haberkorn as a guest for 2010's Kumoricon. Please, if you could at least invite him, I think he really might come. He's got lots of fans, and I think that if he was at the con, more people really would come. I know I and my friends would come for sure then. He's also really great with fans, very nice, and I know he'd love to come.

He was the voice of Allen Walker (D. Gray Man), Hikaru (Ouran High School), Watanuki (xxxHolic), Yamato (Suzuka), Sergeant Frog, Death the Kid (Soul Eater) and so many others. I really think it would help the con's reputation if we could get such a famous voice actor to come, and then maybe other voice actors from FUNimation would come, too. This is the way we can compete with Sakuracon and the L.A. conventions. So, if you could, please invite him, because I think the convention would be even more amazing if he was there!

My number one request would be Todd Haberkorn please! I'm always seeing him attend millions of conventions, I say he would be a great choice for 2010!! I have his e-mail and phone if you need to contact him, and I can't see why he wouldn't attend. He never rejects an invite to be a Guest of Honor, I think he'd be thrilled! He would be my only reason to go to this if you could get him to come. Allen Walker is my fave character of all time, and he is the guy who voices his character. I will love you guys forever if you request him!

Hey, didn't mean to make it sound like we were trying to "cheat" the system or anything. Actually, and though no one will probably believe this, the first account is actually my cousin's account, the second one is mine. As for the third account, that's her brother's. So yes, the first and third will have the same IP address because they live in the same household and use the same computer. I actually have a different IP address, being in a different household, and so that second account is mine. We weren't trying to pull anything on you guys - I just wanted to clear it up that yes, we are a family that all got on here within the same couple of days after finding out we could request people. And you can also note that yes, the first and second accounts were made within a minute of each other because my cousin and I were both online at the same time iming each other and wanted to both make accounts on here and request them. It would be a little odd if the same person made two accounts within a minute apart on two different IP addresses, and yet then decides to later use the same IP address for the third account, don't you think? ;)

That's fine, I understand and I know roommates have their own separate accounts all the time.

Who all request the same guest in virtually the same writing style. :P Anyway, I would request that people generally limit the guest requests to one post per guest. In this situation it would be better to explain that your family are all a fan of the same guest. Thanks for understanding the situation we are in. :)

Oh, wow. I wasn't expecting this.

Interestingly enough, I also would put in a word for Todd Haberkorn. It would be amazing if he would come, I actually wasn't expecting anyone to suggest him at all and was frankly pleasantly surprised. (I often think I'm the only one...) He would be my number one, for sure, but I'd also love to see Travis Willingham, Aaron Dismuke, Chuck Huber, if at all possible Greg Ayres, and please, oh very please, Colleen Clikenbeard. I loved her voice since the moment I first heard her in xxxHOLiC and would be tickled pink if you guys would consider her. :)

This request isn't related so much to anime or voiceacting, but I think if you could get Jonathan Coultan to that con that would be pretty epic. He is a really awesome guy and I think a lot of people would enjoy a performance from him.  :)

I know he'll be in town soon, but I think it would be cool if we could get him to Kcon also.

New to this site, had no idea idea Kumoricon even existed for recommendations forum until now so I was excited. Don't know if this is the right place, but I've got a few people in mind I wouldn't mind requesting. I've seen a few of these requests already so I hope it's cool. Just putting my 2 cents in...

-Todd Haberkorn: A few people I've talked to say he's pretty easy to invite...wouldn't hurt would it?

- Michael Tatum: He's a pretty cool cat, I think he's be awesome to see attend

- Kent Williams: I think we need more people like this

- Caitlyn Glass: I'd love to see her someday

-Todd Haberkorn

this needs to stop like right now.

Yes, I agree.... I can't really update the amounts until I am sure that all these requests for Todd Haberkorn are GENUINE requests... And since we know the same IP address has been used for several accounts, different human beings or not I can't rightly give him that many tally's until I'm sure they are all genuine, which puts me in a pickle of the un-tasty variety!

As Jeff said so earnestly earlier; If you are a household in love with the idea of having Todd Haberkorn at our convention, say so! But don't mislead the general public into thinking there is a sudden outcry for Todd Haberkorn to come to our convention. The result should look like this;
____
MaryJane32: "Hey! My name is Mary and I LOOOOVE K-Con! But I've totally been wanting to rally support for TODD HABERKORN to come to it for a long time! Myself, my sisters (Jujubee2 and Onichansupreme on the site) along with my Brother (Madmaxftw) and even my parents who don't have logins but went to K-con with us last year, and my best friend Jen and her boyfriend ALL LOVE todd haberkorn's work... for those of you who don't know; he did x,y and z! All of which are awesome! Thanks!"
____

Thats legit and shows that you have a great group of people who earnestly mass want Todd at the convention. And while it may be unintentional, a mass registration of peoples from the same IP address who all join the site just to promote one or a few people to come to K-con not only looks bad... but isn't what the site is about at all! It also makes us suspicious of the request, in turn making us less likely to look at a guest like Todd!

PLEASE NOTE: This isn't a flame on any one person, I just want to make sure that people are aware these tactics, intentional or otherwise are frowned upon and we do check the validity of registrations to the forums when tabulating the desire for a guest candidate, recent events may have made this issue forefront, but really... its an issue I was concerned with long before when I started the list.

On the internet we have to go by faith that people are real (not bots) and honest (not deceptive) but that doesn't mean we follow words blindly. I just want to make this clear, to anyone who might be getting ideas about creating 15 loggins and screaming out "VIC MIGNONA!!!" for each one in a seperate post.. that we have ways of knowing these things are occuring... (muwahahaha!  :o )

SO FOR ALL THE TL;DR'ers:
1. We Know.
2. We Don't Approve
3. We are the Borg, resistance is futile

wait.... scratch that last one. Okay! Have fun kiddies!

Though it has probably already been suggested and then rejected: Vic Mignogna, merely because the friend I am accompanying this year likes all of the characters he's voiced.
