Hey there folks, do we have some exciting news to share! Here we are to announce the start of our amazing guest line-up, and I’m sure you’re going to be thrilled.
To start things off we have Jessica Calvello and Lisa Ortiz bringing an amazing history of anime dubbing in some of the industry’s more iconic roles. With the new season of Attack on Titan just over the horizon we are beyond ecstatic to know Jessica Calvello a.k.a. Hange Zoe will be exploring just what it is that makes these Titans tick. Jessica has been a member of the voice acting community since 1995 and continues to deliver time and time again in roles that you’ll never forget. When she’s not working on Titans, she’s running around in search of that emergency food supply as Excel Excel of Excel Saga.
Not to be outdone, Lisa Ortiz is a Jack-of-All trades and a master of them all. You may know Lisa as that spunky teenaged sorceress, Lina Inverse of Slayers fame. Or perhaps you know her as the cute and cuddly super doc’ Tony Tony Chopper! When Lisa’s not out sailing the grand line, she spends time directing the world beloved Pokemon series starting at season 19.
Can you believe our luck? All I can say is this is starting out to be one amazing year at AnimeCTX and I know we’re not done yet so keep your eyes out and an ear to the ground for more announcements!
