These Year in Reviews are not, what I call, official “reviews”. They are a series of musings, learned lessons and stories of what I experienced through out the year.

Lansing’s annual anime convention, Shuto Con, descended upon the Lansing Center again. For the last three years, I had a good time experiencing this convention. How did my fourth visit to Shuto Con compare to last year?
Normally, I conduct interviews one on one. At Shuto Con, I had a special opportunity to interview Monica Rial, Tyson Rinehart, and Ian Sinclair all at once, all by myself. We went offsite and had a fun conversation that covered a myriad of topics including anime, comedy, music and b-movies. Enjoy this casual conversation with three awesome voice actors.
Here lies the final chapter in the 2016 Year in Review series. You might be asking you self: why are you releasing the last part in October of 2017?

After attending Youmacon last year for the first time, I headed back to downtown Detroit to experience Michigan’s largest anime convention again. Last year, I didn’t know what to expect. I experienced some good and some bad. Was it going to be the same as my time from last year? Or did the convention improve?
