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. Of course, reviews are featured but they are blended in with everything. It’s a director’s commentary of my Spring season adventures during the year of 2019 in the Michigan Geek Scene.

I’m going to be honest. Tyson Rinehart is one of my favorite guests to talk to. He is a voice actor, ADR scriptwriter, and a musician. He can be found in Hinomaru Sumo (Ozeki) and Steins Gate 0 (Daru). Now that we got the typical intro out of the way, let’s get into what this awesome interview was about. Want to know about the hilarious show Backstreet Girls: Gokudolls, British Comedy, Mtv’s The State, his albums with Bullet Machine, DIY Punk shows, and so much more? Then this is the interview for you. Sit back with this one on in the background and enjoy.

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.

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.

These Year in Reviews are not, what I call, official “reviews”. Like last year, they will be a series of musings, learned lessons and stories of what I experienced through out the year. Of course, reviews are featured but they are blended in with everything. The theme of FIRSTS sum up the beginning, middle and end of my year, as you will see. Enjoy my year of 2016 in the Michigan Geek Scene.
Ah, Summer. Beautiful, sunny weather without a hint of snow in sight. Con season is in full swing and outdoor festivals appear to entertain you. I can only be inside of convention halls and hotel rooms for only so long before the freedom of outside beckons me. Just like the Lovin Spoonful said, “Despite the heat, it’ll be alright”.

2016 marked the return of the Japanese Animation Film and Anime eXpo (aka JAFAX). JAFAX began in June of 1996 at Kendall College as a one day event. It grew to become a two day event for the next year at that location. From year 3 to 19, JAFAX resided at the beautiful campus of Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan. JAFAX 19 was the last year the event was held at GVSU. Unfortunately the event grew too big for the campus, since the attendance level was over 5000 people. JAFAX 20 signaled the transition from a free 2 day event to a 3 day ticketed event. DeVos Hall became the new home for the Grand Rapids anime and Japanese culture event.
