Hello again lovely readers! If you’re in the US, you might know that last weekend was FanX(used to be known as Salt Lake Comic Con), held at the Salt Palace Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.
This year was better than ever. Amazing panels, talented artists and of course, some of the best cosplays.
One of my favorite parts of FanX is the guest panels. There were TONS for anime, actors/actresses for every genre you can think of. You readers might enjoy knowing Monica Rial was one of them. She’s known for being the voice actress for Tsuu Asui (My Hero Academia), Lyra in Fullmetal Alchemist, Sakura in the English version of Tsubasa: Reservior Chronicle and Shiro in Deadman Wonderland.
There’s always the option to get photo ops with the guest stars (for a price) and to say hello. There’s also the panels that have a Question/Answer session, a cosplay contest and the event ended with a Dr.Horrible’s Sing Along Blog Sing-Along.
Bryce Papenbrook: FanX
Bryce Papenbrook is one of my favorite voice actors. Mostly because he’s the male voice for some of my favorite anime shows! He’s Chat Noir in Miraculous Ladybug:Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir, Kirito in Sword Art Online, Eren Jaeger in Attack on Titan, Rin in Blue Exorcist and Masaomi Kida in Durarara!! I could most likely write a blog post on him alone and the characters he voices. Attack on Titan and Blue Exorcist are some of the best animes ever made.
If you want to see even more of the awesome cosplays and even videos of some of the panels, head to social media and check out #FanX2022.
They did have some other awesome guest stars such as John De Lancie (Q in Star Trek and Discord in My Little Pony) as well as tons of vendors and panels for shows such as Arrow, anything Marvel or DC and Stranger Things.
Just 355 days until the next one! Cosplayers, get ready. Artists, you too! I know that FanX has always been one of my favorite parts of the year and this year was no exception. Can’t wait to see what next year brings!
