The Convention Quadrant: People We Want to Interview Part 1!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! I am back with another post and taking a change of pace for a minute.

List of People I Want to Interview

Since we interviewed Steve Blum back in 2016 at holiday Matsuri, we have achieved that goal and still interviewed people like Paul St. Peter, Derek Steven Prince, and Jennifer Hale and so on. Now with the slight slowdown in press we have kind of thought just sticking with Omni and RangerStop for press but doesn’t mean we want to branch to other conventions in the future. Heck, we still want to go back to MetroCon since they were really good to us and have given us recommendations to some of their guests. Hoping next year would be a goal? Who knows? Now, there are some people I do want to interview whether it’s on Skype or in person and who are they? Let’s see!

Jennifer Yen: First up is someone I really want to interview for a long time now and that is Jennifer Yen. If you have read my Ipsy posts, she is the one who created the brands Purlisse and Yensa Cosmetics. Reason for interviewing is not just because she created her own brands but she was Vipra on Power Rangers Light Speed Rescue. Not only have I wanted to know more about her brands but her role in Light Speed Rescue as well. I still enjoy seeing that little tidbit about her villain role on Ipsy whenever I get an item from either brand.
Barbara Goodson: Next up is another iconic Power Rangers villain and that is Barbara Goodson. She is known for playing Rita Repulsa and of course our favorite overlord Leharl in Disgaea. Hoping to get press again this year for RangerStop since she is a guest again if not I did get in contact with her recently over Facebook to see about getting that Skype interview since that is a bit of a backup for us and has worked well so far. I will update over Twitter with what happens.
Neil Kaplan: Since we have interviewed Digimon stars over the years Neil Kaplan is another one I want to interview. Recently the National Federation of the Blind talked about how there should be more blind actors in blind character roles and I remembered how Mr. Kaplan taught at the Braille Institute years ago when it comes to using Braille scripts. I did get back in touch with him and he does stay in touch with students after ending his class. He does want to come back to Orlando and Omni if you’re reading this he should be a guest since he is Halsemon in Digimon Adventure 2. Also, any Voltron Legendary Defender fans? He also plays Zarkon.
Yuri Lowenthal: Yes! I placed this guy on my list since I have been a fan of one of his characters even if he was evil, Yuri Lowenthal. He has an amazing voice range and the first time I heard him in anything was as Sasuke in Naruto and my favorite role he has done has to be Haseo in the G.U. games. Getting to sit down with him in person or over Skype would be a huge honor.
Johnny Yong Bosch: Another Power Rangers alumni and now anime and video game voice actor has to be Johnny Yong Bosch. I have met him twice in person and want to interview him since it would be a nice addition to our channel. How I heard of his anime work was when the anime heat Guy J appeared on MTV2 when I was in high school and he has been in so many anime series and video games over time, heck he is in the G. U. games and the last two Devil May Cry games, as in four and five. Hoping to get to interview him sometime in the future.
Liam O’Brien: Speaking of G.U. another actor from that franchise is Liam O’Brien. When he was at MythiCon for the first time, we only went for fun to get a feel for the convention and got to enjoy the panels. Now that MythiCon has ended hoping to interview this guy since he has voiced Gaara in Naruto for the longest time and Endrance in the games I mentioned above.
David Mitranga: Who is this guy you’re wondering? Well, all thanks to our buddy Xeno Crystal not being able to go to MetroCon this year like us he has inspired me to add him to our list of people we want to interview. Anyone who is a My Hero Academia fan as much as we are he is the voice of Todoroki Mr. Ice Fire himself!
Bridget Hoffman: Adding another actress on and that is Bridget Hoffman. I know this would be a hard one to get since I haven’t seen her here in Florida as much. She has been the voice of Mizuho in Please Teacher, Miaka in Fushigi Yugi and Mahoro in Mahoromatic.
Colleen Clinkenbeard: Maybe I should stop here since this list maybe long and that my last entry for now is Colleen Clinkenbeard! We tried getting press for Anime Festival Orlando again last year since she was a guest oat this one and didn’t get a chance to interview her at MegaCon which I won’t get into detail but the short end to that story was due to not letting any press interview any people that were famous including voice actors. Voice actors can be famous but most of the time they can be popular! She is a popular pick due to not only voicing Erza Scarlet but she has directed many series in the past including my all-time favorite series, Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle. Hoping to get to interview her in the future even if she ends up as a guest at Omni.

Well, that is it for this list for now. I am ending it here because there are so many people I want to interview and it’s hard to fit them all in. I may do a second part to this down the road so stay tuned for that one later. Until next time everyone stay beautiful while traveling the vast universe!
