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?
Sasuke Uciha (Naruto), Simon (Gurren Lagann) and Ben Tennyson (Ben 10) are a paltry sampling of the numerous popular shows that Yuri has voiced for. We talk about Mad Max Fury Road, martial arts, Ninja Scroll, Dr. Who, charitable causes, steampunk, noir influences and many more topics in this engaging interview.
I always strive to create a fun and engaging interview for my guests. However, when the guest and I click right from the beginning, the real magic begins. Yuri Lowenthal was, by far, one of my favorite interviews of the year (and of all time)!
Watch what anime and video game voice actor Todd Haberkorn called one of his best interviews of 2016. Todd Haberkorn’s list of roles are so numerous that I wouldn’t know where to begin. Let’s try Natsu from Fairy Tale and Ling Yao from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood to name a few. Learn more about Todd’s non-anime background as we discuss: his favorite concert, a tribute war with Vic Mignona, his music album, his time on Hot Pepper Gaming and Jiminy Glick. Special bonus footage with a cameo and a message for Todd included.
Check out these pics from the Friday and Saturday night dance parties at Youmacon. Plus, six extra pics (at the beginning) that I accidentally left out from the main albums.
