Oh! I think it'll be great to get Mark Fischbach at Youmacon next year! Not sure on how many fans there are here but I for one would love to see Markiplier here! He always talks about how much fun it is for him to go meet his fans and he also said he enjoys conventions! So why not? Youmacon! Make it happen!

I'll second the request to get Markiplier to Youmacon! He's not only entertaining but he takes a real interest in his fans which I find to be extremely endearing.
I do say, I'm rather put off by these serpents aboard our aircraft.

Think we can finally get Jamie Marchi now since she's in a mainstream popular Anime that a good chunk of this con's fanbase likes?

I'd list a bunch of her works but I've done that before so I'll list the one thing that'll catch peoples attention

Jamie Marchi (Panty & Stocking's Panty, High School DxD's Rias Gremory) will be Gou Matsuoka Free! Eternal Summer
Currently nerding out on Digimon

We have a few people! Who? Teaser to come at Ohayocon this weekend! A few more to go when the new website goes live!

And just for a little disclaimer now: We have a by-law for the con that prohibits us from inviting cosplayers as guests. If you would like to see a cosplayer as one, please direct them to guests@midwestmediaexpo.com for further information.

Jumping in early in the thread's life to make sure these guys get noticed.

Super Best Friends Zaibatsu

Works: Since 2010, Matt, Pat, Woolie, and Liam have become a verifiable YouTube behemoth, producing a host of video content including various Let's Plays and Top Tens, on-the-road videos hosted at places ranging from anime cons to E3 itself, hard-hitting investigations into the differences between Canadian and American breakfast cereal, and other bits of random awesomeness. Additionally, they host the "SuperBestFriendCast", a weekly podcast where they discuss the news in gaming, anime, and whatever else causes them to get hype.

Other Works: Outside of their own videos and podcasts, Matt and Woolie themselves made cameo appearances in the video game Skullgirls. Recurring TBFP character Zubaz, AKA "The Baz", has also made several appearances in games, including as a playable character in Divekick, a secret boss in Shovel Knight, and even a giant fighting robot in the upcoming Colossal Kaiju Combat. They've also collaborated on occasion with Did You Know Gaming and recurring Youmacon guests Team Four Star.

Fun Facts: Matt once mentioned on a SuperBestFriendCast episode that he had heard good things about a "Detroit anime convention" and would be potentially down to go if asked. Wonder who he could be referring to...? ;)

Websites: Official Website / YouTube Channel

Twitter: @2BFOfficial / @MattMcMuscles / @AngriestPat / @WoolieWoolz / @2BFLiam

And while we're at it...

Iron Galaxy Studios

Works: Founded in 2008, Iron Galaxy Studios is a video game development studio primarily based out of Chicago, with a second studio in Orlando. Originally, the studio primarily provided "technical consulting" by aiding developers who needed extra help with developing their games, from Bionic Commando to Bioshock Infinite. In recent years, however, the company has expanded to start creating larger projects, from building the remakes of classic Capcom fighters like Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online and Marvel vs. Capcom Origins, to creating wholly original titles like Wreckateer and Divekick. Their current major project is the continued development of Season Two of Killer Instinct for the Xbox One.

Other Works: Beyond actual video game development, programmer Darryl Wisner and studio chief Dave Lang host #TeamGFBRadio, a weekly podcast in which they retell their stories from years spent in the trenches of game development. Just don't ask what the GFB stands for; they've been sworn to secrecy. Designer Adam "Keits" Heart is also a former professional fighting game competitor and the former editor-in-chief of Shoryuken.com.

Fun Facts: Dave Lang once did an angry, NSFW reading of Carl Sagan's "Pale Blue Dot". And it was amazing.

I third the Markiplier request! I'm a big fan of his, and it's somewhat of my dream to meet him. I don't live in Michigan anymore, but I'll be flying out for Youma this year, and it'd be great for there to be other guests other than Steam Powered Giraffe that I'm going for. I also know some other fans of his who go to Youma, and I'm hoping they can also help in getting him to Youma?

I'd like to request, BRADIO.

They are the band behind the fantastic OP to the equally-fantastic anime series "Death Parade". And their music absolutely rocks and is much different from most things in anime soundtracks right now.

And since CyberLink420 requested the SuperBestFriends, I'd like to request the guys that saved them from BIO Freaks---Maximilian and the crew from Yo! Video Games.

Max has worked on Killer Instinct in recent months. His personal YouTube channel is one of the largest YouTube sites for fighting game news, reviews, and tips. With Youmacon doing so much for fighting game tournaments in recent years, I can't think of a better dood to cover it than Maximilian. Plus, the Yo! Video Games Crew, Matt Simmons, Kenny & Steve all bring a much different vibe than most gaming YouTube/Twitch content, in that they are all about positivity, excitement and hype.
Woot.

And also...woot.

Andrew W.K.: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_W.K.
Just thinking of other music acts to have here for Youmacon other than Steam Powered Giraffe. The man does love anime, animation, most of the stuff that we like so why not have Andrew here for Youmacon 2015!

Heavy seconding on Andrew W.K. and Super Best Friends. I don't know if the ballroom could contain how insane AWK would get.
