Nobuyuki Hiyama is a well respected, long time voice acting veteran. Off the top of my head, my favorite role of his is the Director of Shirobako, but he has a ton of anime and video game roles.
I was only able to attend the Q&A session held on Sunday (May 28, 2017). I jotted down some of the questions and answers but pretty scrappily (it is hard) so forgive me for paraphrasing a lot and for any missing/incorrect info. The answers written here are also much shorter than his nice long replies. Anyway, I hope you find his responses interesting (I liked him a lot!).
Last month, I was at Anime North and attended a panel by Takeshi Nogami and Dan Kanemitsu on Military Girls and the irk. Nogami has worked on a fair few manga (as well as doujins of popular series like Kancolle) and he contributed to the character designs in Girls und Panzer.
I am sorry I had to combine posts 2 and 3 together. I was so tired on Saturday when I got home (even though I got home quite early), nothing got done. I am also sorry this post is a week late.
I am also sorry for making a post that reads a lot like diary entries. I guess this is my own way of keeping a diary of sorts for what happened. (Spoiler: The diary entries are quite boring.)
Here at Toxic Muffin we strive to provide you with timely coverage of important anime/manga related events. Naturally, given its close vicinity to our home base, the most important such event going on is Anime North.
I got to Anime North a bit late ( around 4 or 5 PM, I think ) and didn’t bother going to any panel/event. Since I didn’t even have my camera with me, I couldn’t take pictures (or well chose not to anyway) of the cool cosplay folk.
No, all I did was shop, but even here I was kind of limited since I only brought $20 in cash with me (a few retailers accept debit/credit and I ended up spending way too much at them).
Once more, Anime North is happening and once more I am attending.
I apologize for making this post so late when no one is going to notice and have time to make plans. If you, happen to be going to Anime North, then let me know so we can meet up or something!
As usual, you can just leave a reply here, email me or contact me on twitter. I do have data on my phone, so I am normally quite reachable. I will probably be there for most of Friday (tomorrow), Saturday and Sunday as well.
Last time around, I took my AN announcement post and modified it with some coverage. I don’t think I will do that this time and instead I will probably make one or more separate posts covering it.
THIS POST HAS BEEN UPDATED AND ANIME NORTH HAS ALREADY HAPPENED.
Anime North is happening this year!
Well, it happens every year, but par something going horribly wrong, it is happening this year to!
If you are going to Anime North and would like to meet up, leave me a reply or talk to me on Twitter. I have data on my phone so I should still be accessible. I will be there Friday evening (likely sometime after 4), all of Saturday and up to 4 or 5 PM on Sunday.
This post feels like a waste of time, but hopefully if I get the chance I will update it with pictures and stuff as the convention goes on.
I DIDN’T GET TO UPDATE THIS THE WEEKEND OF, BUT THIS POST HAS NOW BEEN UPDATED!
p.s. Despite being called Anime North, Anime North happens in the Southern part of Canada.
This post is two weeks late, for that I apologize, but then again, I only finished editing these pictures one week ago, so it isn’t that late after all!
I wish I could write you guys a more detailed coverage of the event, but unfortunately, I only went for one day, and even on that day, I was only present for a grand total of 6 hours or so. I also didn’t go to any of the events or anything. All I did was go kaka over awesome cosplay’s. Oh, but I also spent a great deal of time contemplating potential purchases, and what not.
I don’t have much time, my midterms start next week, which is why I won’t bother putting up a Weekly Shonen this week (I am going to gift myself with 2 issues of Shonen next week!), and I am not going to bother talking about the photos or anything at least not in detail.
