The crew of Toonami would be a great addition, perhaps they could show off more of the upcoming Intruder 2 special and unveil their next movie night; or even better - a new show.

Got two suggestions, both of them powerhouses in the online space, who would work for both Youmacon OR Midwest Media Expo. First up...

Two Best Friends Play

Works: Since 2010, Matt, Pat, Woolie, and Liam have become a verifiable YouTube zaibatsu, 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 "Super Best FriendCast", 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 Super Best FriendCast 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 number two...

Giant Bomb Chicago

Works: The officially unofficial Midwest branch of the gaming news website Giant Bomb, Giant Bomb Chicago is made up of Patrick Klepek, Dave Lang, and Max Temkin.
  • Patrick Klepek is the senior news editor at Giant Bomb and one of the hosts of the podcast "Bombin' the AM with Scoops and the Wolf". He started his career in games journalism at age 14, and previously served at sites like 1Up, MTV Multiplayer Blog, and G4. He has a history of discussing subjects like diversity in the media, such as in games like Danganronpa, and doing panels such as "Why Internet Jerks Aren't Going To Win, And How You Can Help" that would be perfect for a congoing audience.
  • Dave Lang is the founder and CEO of Chicago-based Iron Galaxy Studios, the developers of such video games as Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online, Divekick, the 2011 reboot of You Don't Know Jack and the upcoming second season of 2013's Killer Instinct. Prior to this, Lang served at studios such as Acclaim, Sculptured Software, and Midway, working on titles such as NFL Blitz, Mortal Kombat, and NHL Breakaway.
  • Max Temkin, while also known for the card game Werewolf and publishing the video game Samurai Gunn, is probably most recognized as the creator of Cards Against Humanity. He has also built websites for causes like the Hotel Rwanda Rusesabagina Foundation, as well as serving on the National Advisory Council for DonorsChoose.org.

Websites: Giant Bomb / Iron Galaxy Studios / Maxistentialism

Seconding both of these, but ESPECIALLY Patrick Klepek. He's already come to Michigan to speak before, and addresses topics that are VERY core to the unfortunate state of bullying within anime conventions and culture today. He'd be a fantastic addition to the 2014 Youmacon roster.

However, these two are my *hopeful* Japanese guests:

Naoko Takeuchi (creator of the Sailor Moon franchise)

or

Kotono Mitsuishi (Japanese voice actor for Usagi/Sailor Moon, Misato Katsuragi in Evangelion, Boa Hancock in One Piece, etc)

General list:

Laura Bailey
Brina Palencia
Chuck Huber
Cynthia Cranz
Caitlin Glass (although this is pretty much a given)
Colleen Clinkenbeard
Johnny Yong Bosch
Luci Christian
Chris Patton


I too want to see Johnny Yon Bosch, as well as his band Eyeshine if possible!

Protomen

Game grumps and Jontron would also be sweet!

Steven Blum! He says he likes doing cons right on his site...
http://www.steveblumvoices.com/?page_id=45

And lastly, A few Japanese folks!

KOTOKO does Animazement in North Carolina, and since we like doing J-music, I think she would be an amazing addtion!

Leiji Matsumoto who is the creator of Maetel and Captain Harlock, among many other amazing animes and movies, including interstella 55555!

Kappei Yamaguchi who voices characters like Inuyasha and Usopp!

Please, please, please get a relevant Japanese musical guest. Please get one that people have heard of before, that plays instruments and doesn't afraid of anything.

Or any Japanese guests at all, for that matter, but I'm mostly concerned about the musical guests. If you don't want the expense and difficulty of booking a Japanese band, that is too bad, but please look into Shutocon's musical guest offerings over the past few years and book accordingly. They are much smaller than you and have a smaller budget, but somehow they are blowing you out of the water in the music department. Get something related to Japan, video games, or anime. Even if I liked Steam Powered Giraffe in the first place, I'd be sick of them by now.

Musical guests are fun and cheap (the domestic ones, at least) time filler that most people can enjoy. Japanese indie bands have been playing shows at cons in the US for a decade, at much smaller cons that Youmacon for that matter. Please, please look into it. It's terribly sad that you have "J-music" right in your logo but do absolutely nothing for it.
