I personally think it would be amazing if you guys could get Akira, the model that been going to a decent amount of conventions as a fashion guest along with a lolita brand?

Otherwise someone like Reika or Kaname? Maybe Yuegene? (All cosplayers)

Otherwise. Voice actor wise. It would be really nice to get a seiyuu. Hiro Shimono, Junichi Suwabe, Tsuda Kenjiro. Now many cons bring seiyuus so it would be a refreshing change of pace.

Totally agree with YoiYumeo!

This is my first time attending Youmacon, so I don't know what is like the "norm" of usual guests, but:

Would be awesome to get Akira as a guest. She is a fashion model in boyish style fashion and a singer, and has several works related to anime recently.
-Sang "Aoki Tsuki Michite", the ending song for Kuroshitsuji: Book of Circus
-Sang "Kirie Toroimen no Shirabe", the theme song for Vampire Knight Musical (adapted from manga with the same name)
-Performed in the Vampire Knight Musical as Kuran Kaname (by the way, is being performed AGAIN this summer due to popularity)

I would personally be thrilled if we can get Japanese voice actors as guests, such as Kamiya Hiroshi, Ono Daisuke, Fukuyama Jun or other Japanese voice actors YoiYumeo mentioned.

Too bad we can't have cosplayers as guests. I feel like that would get more people to come, just my opinion.
Youmacon 2015 tentative list
Thursday: Tachibana Makoto (Free!)
Friday: Toma (Amnesia) and Sakamaki Shu (Diabolik Lovers)
Saturday: Seragaki Aoba (DMMD)
Sunday: Todo Heisuke (Hakuouki)
maybe - Kimizuki (Owari no Seraph)

Personally, I would really love to see Michelle Ruff (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michelle_Ruff) at Youmacon! She's an idol of mine and she's from right here in Detroit!

I would also love to see:

People I always want to see include Ellen McLain, Ali Hillis, and Cris Vee,

Recent loves of mine are Maxey Whitehead, Alison Viktroin, Trina Nishimura, and Tara Platt.

Helen McCarthy is an awesome non-VA guest.

I would love to see the Popular cos-player/Youtube star D-piddy make a appearance. Actor wise. I always wanted to meet Steve Blum and Jennifer Hale.

And now, we get to play good news and bad news.

The good news: We're hopefully going to be wrapped up with negotiations by July 1st. We're waiting on one more group and then that is it! Anyone else suggested in this thread is now being considered for 2016 (and we already have our first person lined up! Dude, I know!).

The bad news: I want to tell you guys everyone now! I am aiming to have everyone announced by Ramencon, which is September 18th. That should give everyone a month and a halfish to get to work on any fandom related cosplays.

Noah Antwiler (The Spoony One) Wants to come!

Postby Thirroxin » Mon Jun 08, 2015 9:30 am

I think Youmacon really has a central focus upon gaming. The gaming rooms are packed 24/7 and we have tons of panels for them, the perfect example here is how Youmacon has had Linkara appearing and the video game panel named "Why your favorite game sucks". I believe The Spoony One would be an AMAZING addition to this genre because he has been doing this as his job for years. I don't think I'm alone here when I say I would love the chance to finally be able to meet him! Hell, I'd wait all weekend in a line to do so. :D

And look! He may still want to come! ^___^

Please consider this one at least! :D

Mind you, this tweets old, but hopefully he would still consider this! ^^

Pretty please!

Luci christian would be awesome and so would Brina Palencia :D i would love to meet mad moxxi from the boarderland series, Monica Rial be lovely to meet


Also a few others I'd sell my soul to meet are

Tara Strong: lets face it. Bronies, Teen Titans, Fairly odd parents. The List goes on and on. im actually suprised we havent gotton her yet lol

AVGN: we have gotton the NC twice since i been coming to youma but no AVGN. im actually curious why since the game room has old games that james could play with us. plus the panels and 18+ panels he could host would be gold

Angry Joe: Love him or hate him. you have to admit that joe has a name in gaming. he loves to interveiw and even play games. we could have him host the gaming tournaments. we could have him interveiw the attendees. maybe he could make it part of his channel. food for thought.

D.C Douglas and Roger Craig Smith: the voice of chris and wesker. what more could be said. what more CAN be said. the epicness alone would be remarkable
