We recorded a press conference with Lex Lang at Nan Desu Kan. Lex has voiced about a million iterations of Soldier B, Goemon in Lupin the Third, Dr. Doom in The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, and Fire Lord Sozin in Avatar the Last Airbender. Please enjoy the podcast!
The next in our series of NDK 22 press conferences is Sandy Fox. She tends to voice the cute girl characters like Chibi-Usa in Sailor Moon and Tachikomo in Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. Enjoy!
Elizabeth Maxwell had a full on press conference this year at NDK. Please enjoy!
We interviewed Zach Aguilar at NDK 2018 and discussed how he started voice acting as well as his hopes for the future.
Yearly correspondent Cari visited the SANA (Summit on Anime in North America) at this years NDK, and had the presence of mind to record it!
A big bonus of going to NDK is getting to catch up with people that you have met before. There is also the bonus of these people being voice actors. A few years ago we interviewed Patrick Seitz, and we were lucky enough to get to do it again!
Another recording from NDK 2014. This one featuring Ian Condry on the Soul of Anime. Dr. Coundry is a cultural anthropologist and associate professor of Comparative Media Studies at MIT. He has done fieldwork research in Tokyo's anime studios which has included interviews with creators, merchandisers, and fans. His book, The Soul of Anime: Collaborative Creativity and Japan's Media Success Story (Experimental Futures), can be found on Amazon.
NDK has come and gone, and we finally had a chance to decompress from the event. Now to review what happened over the past week.
