That’s right Arizona anime fans! Chris Sabat and Sean Schemmel are coming to Taiyou Con January 15th-17th, 2016!
Anyone who knows us here at GNN is aware that were big Dragon Ball Z fans! We loved the most recent movie in theaters and we can’t wait to catch up with some of the voice cast. So whoever summoned Shenron and asked that these two be guests at the convention together, we thank you.
Sean Schemmel is best known as the voice of Goku from Funimation’s English dub of Dragon Ball Z, and Chris Sabat has lent his voice talents to a number of characters in the Dragon Ball franchise including Vegeta and Piccolo. Both of these me are legends in the field with extensive voice acting careers spanning multiple anime and video game franchises. If you’ve watched any amount of English dubbed anime in the last decade, you’ll recognize the voices of these talented individuals.
Excited yet? You should be!
Taiyou Con is a three day convention held in Arizona dedicated to anime, manga, video games, and many other aspects of Japanese culture.
