You can tell Victoria’s little-con-that-could has not just expanded over the years but has grown gracefully. And no more is that evident in the selection of Tsukino-Con’s guests whose names get bigger and bigger with every passing con. Last year saw Japanese seiyuu actress Satsuki Yukino (Free!, Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040) join Tracey Moore (Care Bears, Sailor Moon) and Kyle Hebert (Dragonball Z, Fullmetal Alchemist) as the con’s special guests. With today’s announcement of Tsukin-Con’s first guest of 2016, fans should expect more of the same.
The first guest of 2016 will be none other than voice actor Josh Grelle. Grelle is an anime fan and a native of Clifton, Texas. He got his foot in the door of voice work when he was hired by the popular ADVision Films in January 2004. Since that time Grelle has become a seasoned veteran with such credits under his belt as Clannad, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Dragon Ball Z Kai, Itsuki in Initial D, and recently Armin in Attack on Titan.
Grielle’s work has also included some notable video games. He can be heard as Sima Shi in Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends, Dave in Borderlands 2, and Xbalanque in Smite.
