Luci Christian is a wonderful actress that I had the pleasure to interview at JAFAX. You can hear her voice in shows such as My Hero Academia (Ochaco), Strike Witches, and Made in Abyss to name a few. We dove into one of her favorite anime series, journalism, tattoos, and podcasts. We also had a deep conversation about The Hate U Give. You know an interview is good when the guest wants to keep going. Check it out.
I returned to Grand Rapids own anime convention, JAFAX. Check out these photos from the Japanese Animation Film and Art Expo.
JAFAX 2019 is our 23rd JAFAX event, and our 4th at DeVos Place. Join us for a weekend of fantastic cosplays, informative and fun panels, special guests, great gaming, and much more!
