Bryce Papenbrook at AlmaCon 2017

Fan favorite voice actor, Bryce Papenbrook has appeared in series such as Attack on Titan, Seven Deadly Sins, and Sword Art Online. Eschewing the usual conversation about anime, we delved more into the other aspects of Bryce’s life. Expect to hear about his father, music, Final Fantasy and a boatload of martial arts. Seriously, a lot about martial arts. Plus, we talk about the upcoming comedic web series called CONFessionals. This was a fun interview that I was looking forward to since I first met him at the Grand Rapids Comic Con in 2016. Check it out.

Winter is the one season that ends one year and begins another. 2016 marked a new journey into the land of Michigan. Sure, it was cold but I couldn’t wait to get on the road and experience everything. Thankfully, it was only cold on the outside. Find out what awaited me during the chilly months of January and February.
