With a voice that is hard to forget, Don will be doing a reading at the Saturday evening cabaret to entertain the fans.

Bob will lead discussion groups and panels in the programming section of the Anime Kaiju Experience, where Godzilla fans can talk about their favorite daikaiju. Vic Mignogna`s career is without a doubt one of a very active performer. Vic’s been a voice actor in the fantastic kaiju film GAMERA 3: REVENGE OF IRIS. In addition to his famous work as the voice of Edward Elric in FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST, he’s had the duty of bringing to life one of the anime screens biggest heart throbs, Tamaki Suou from OURAN HIGH SCHOOL HOST CLUB.
