With all due respect to the announced guests, I'd strongly prefer to see more Japanese guests. Wait, did I see more? I meant any... *sigh* Maybe they're still TBA.

And it's too bad Vic Mignogna is apparently banned because I'd love to meet him too.

Vic is coming this year

I rarely post here but I absolutely have to request Markiplier. He is one of my biggest inspirations and it would be so amazing if he could come. If not for Youma then maybe Midwest.

I also wanna suggest Game Grumps, although I'm not sure how Arin and his crew would feel about coming to Detroit ^^'

And on the topic of Youtubers, TeamFourStar have to come back again. This con is basically like their second home ;w;

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...? ;)

I'd like to second a suggestions for these guys. It'd be really cool to see them come down here.

I've always wanted to see Crispin Freeman, Troy Baker, and Laura Bailey. The last time Laura was at Youma I was brand new to anime and didn't know who she was!

And I agree with everyone suggesting Markiplier, I'd love to see him though I think he'd be better fit for Midwest Media Expo.
2010: Reno (Final Fantasy VII)
2012 + 2013: Izaya Orihara (Durarara!!)

I can't find a thread for musical guests, so I'm going to suggest a DJ that I think is pretty ok.

DJ Meirlin.

I think her stuff fits the target audience. I think she's okay.

And also...woot.

I dunno how hard they are to get but they've gone to AnimeExpo and MomoCon and the likes.
Plus they've worked with FUNimation multiple times.

I know myself and many more would buy platinum badges if Mega64 was on the Guest List. I know they have a pretty large following in this area.

A lot of us steampunk fans wanna know before we shell out the bucks for a hotel and admission...IS SPG GOING TO BE AT THE CON???????
(i seriously have had like...30-40 people ask me because they said they will NOT GO to the con if SPG won't be there )

...and their FB page banner says yes, they will be...but their calendar, and their photography people's calendar aren't updated....
and i have a lot of people who'd love to go to this con for SPG, but some of them want a solid answer before pre-reg rates go up again...and the last hotel rooms are snapped up.
Ninja, PLEASE!
