Yes everyone it’s getting to that time of the year again where we begin build up to the October edition of the London MCM Expo taking place at the Excel Centre in London from Friday 28th – Sunday 30th October. (It should be noted that entry on Friday is only granted if you have a weekend ticket.)
Two voice acting guest announcement have been made in the form of Vic Mignogna and Ali Hallis.
Vic Mignogna, one of the most recognisable names in Anime voice acting is known for his portrayals of lead protagonist Edward Elric in both Fullmetal Alchemist and the new incarnation Fullmetal Alchemist: Bortherhood along with roles in various forms of the Dragon Ball franchise and Bleach to name a few.
Another talent if his is that he also has sung the English language versions of anime songs including some for One Piece! See his version of the first television opening for One Piece below!
Vic will be appearing on the Saturday and Sunday of the convention.
The other voice artist announced is perhaps one that Anime fans won’t be as familiar with, but nonetheless will still be a pleasure to meet in person, as Ali Hallis will grace the London Expo on both Saturday and Sunday. Ali is known for her work in the video game voice over industry. Her credits include the lead character ‘Lightning’ from Final Fantasy XIII and ‘Dr. Liara T’Soni’ from the Mass Effect franchise.
For more information on the London Expo, visit the official website of the convention HERE. Early entry tickets (which can get you inside the convention up to two hours before general doors open) are on sale now and are priced at £16 per day or £28 for a weekend ticket. If previous conventions are anything to go by you might want to think about getting tickets sooner rather than later!
We’ll be sure to keep you up to date with all the big news in the coming weeks!
