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?
Welcome to Geeks and Ink, where we highlight awesome tattoos based on geek culture. Tattoos are a unique way in which we express ourselves. Not only do they show off art but they often have a story or meaning behind them. Find out what these tattoos mean to these people.
Brandt Cooley aka Professor Shyguy is a chiptune pop artist. This talented multi-instrumentalist creates awesome chiptune songs. Whether they are nice original tunes or cool covers, he lays down catchy songs. We talk about his albums, music videos, metal, gatekeeping mentality, our favorite game soundtracks, comic books, and much more.
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.
Final batch of photos from Shuto Con.

Shuto Con is Lansing’s Annual Anime Convention, coming to the Lansing Center March 23rd-25th, 2018. This convention will be a three day event held in Lansing, MI that focuses on Artists and the art of Interactive Cosplaying!
Starting Friday morning at the Lansing Center and Radisson Hotel Lansing our convention will run from 9AM until 6PM Sunday afternoon. We will have several large rooms for panels, over 50 unique artists as well as several dealers to get your latest anime goodies from, three anime viewing rooms, a huge video game room open during the entire convention, a table top gaming room, special guests, and much more!
Shuto Con also hopes to give you a truly unique experience by participating in our “Interactive Cosplay” experience. We highly encourage ALL our attendees to dress up as their favorite characters and act like them during the convention. A mock battle arena will be staged where you can “fight” it out with other cosplayers, or even take “bets” on who will win! Special points will be given out to those that participate the most, and at Closing Ceremonies on Sunday afternoon we will announce the Shuto Con “King and Queen of Cosplayers”! If you do not wish to participate, but would still like to capture those fond memories, we ask that your bring your cameras and/or video recorders and witness a viral hit in the making!
