Animazement adds several seiyuu from original Mobile Suit Gundam


You've got Char, Amuro, Kai and Lalah

I was already going to Animazement. Their announcement of KOTOKO as the main musical guest was enough for me to plop down the cash for a weekend pass, plane tickets and a shared hotel. With their latest guest announcements, I have a feeling that this year's con will be one for the books.

Animazement recently updated their guest list with several voice acting legends. At the top of that list are Shuichi Ikeda and Toru Furuya, famous for their turns as Char Aznable and Amuro Ray throughout the Universal Century Mobile Suit Gundam shows. Besides Gundam, you may have heard Ikeda in One Piece (Shanks) and Furuya in Saint Seiya (Pegasus Seiya) or Sailor Moon (Tuxedo Mask.) They'll also be joined by Toshio Furukawa (Kai Shinden, Mobile Suit Gundam/Portgas D. Ace, One Piece) and Keiko Han (Lalah Sun, Mobile Suit Gundam/Luna & Queen Beryl, Sailor Moon.)

I've got some mad hype now for this con. Besides my love of KOTOKO and the Mobile Suit Gundam alums, several top blokes from STUDIO TRIGGER will be there. Oh, and the producer of Gundam Build Fighters will be there as well. I wish I had three or four clones to be able to experience all of this in one weekend.
