Steve Blum is a world renown voice actor and all around cool dude. In 2016, I interviewed him and I was hoping for another chance since I was light years better now. At JAFAX, that chance came to fruition. This time, we dive into his new voice acting classes, his collaborations with rapper Logic, the significant meaning of his extensive back tattoo, space, an obscure role that he would like to reprise, his thoughts on the upcoming live action adaptation of Cowboy Bebop, and much more. This interview was a personal favorite of mine for numerous reasons. I’m happy to say that it crushed our old interview. Please enjoy.

Mega Ran is one of the most prolific rappers in the realm of chip hop. Let’s not forget to mention that he is a record holder in the Guinness Book of Records too.

It’s a great interview.

Did MAGFest live up to be what it was hyped out to be or did it suck? Read on to find out.

For the previous two years, I wrote reviews for Michigan’s largest anime convention Youmacon. My experience this year was not drastically different from the other visits. With that being said, I decided to forgo the traditional review on the event because I feel it would be redundant to do so. Instead, I will focus on the things that I experienced at the 2017 edition of Youmacon.
