Our favrorite voice actress and premier Japanese seiyuu Mayumi Tanaka is one ot this year's Guests of Honor for Sakura Con this year, April 2-4. Those lucky enough to live near/travel to Seattle that weekend are surely in for a treat.
Already getting Usopp's VA and now Luffy's, someone needs to convince their managers to make more US appearances...like in California. Lucky people who are going... *jealous*
Taken from Sakura Con's main page:
Mayumi Tanaka is a prolific and accomplished seiyu. She is best known for the roles of Ryuunosuke Fujinami in Urusei Yatsura, Pazu in Laputa: Castle in the Sky, Monkey D. Luffy in One Piece and Krillin in Dragon Ball but her total anime and non credits are very extensive. Ms. Tanaka has appeared in well over 150 roles, many in such notable series as Chrono Trigger, Rurouni Kenshin and Kimba the White Lion. Ms. Tanaka is a fan favorite as Kanna in Sakura Wars as well as the singer of the theme song for the franchise. This is Mayumi Tanaka's first Sakura-Con and first West Coast convention appearance.
