MEGACON Orlando will be taking place May 19-22 at the Orange County Convention Center, and a whole list of exciting voice-over talents from My Hero Academia, Demon Slayer, Dragon Ball Z, Cowboy Bebop, and Naruto will be there.
In a press release, MEGACON revealed what actors will be available for autographs, Q&A panels and selfies. Some are from more than one of the series listed. From My Hero Academia, they have Justin Briner (Izuku Midoriya), David Matranga (Shoto Todoroki), Jason Liebrecht (Dabi), Monica Rial (Tsuyu Asui), Chris Wehkamp (Shota Aizawa), and Christopher Sabat (All Might).
For Dragon Ball Z, they’re getting Sean Schemmel (Goku and King Kai) and Justin Cook (Dende, Raditz, Cell Jr.).
They’ve only announced one actor each for Demon Slayer, Cowboy Bebop and Naruto, but in each case, they got the star. So Zach Aguilar (Tanjiro Kamado), Steve Blum (Spike Spiegel) and Maile Flanagan (Naruto Uzumaki) are all attending.
More guests will be announced in the future, so there might be more anime voice actors coming.
MEGACON gave this description of itself:
