2017 Festival Guest Announcement!

micahfbWe’re happy to announce that Micah Solusod will be a guest at the 2017 festival!

Despite his general inability to fly, Micah Solusod is a real voice actor and illustrator.

The rapscallion made his anime debut as Malek Werner in Blassreiter and is best known for his role as Soul Evans in Soul Eater. He has shown up in a number of other Funimation titles as Toma Kamijo in A Certain Magical Index, Yuichiro Hyakuya in Seraph of the End, Yukine in Noragami, Midnight in Fairy Tail, teen Coby in One Piece, Wisely in D.Gray-Man Hallow, Tagoma in Dragonball Z: Resurrection ‘F’, Mizuki in Kamisama Kiss, older Ame in Wolf Children, Gakushu Asano in Assassination Classroom, Black/King of Despair in Blood Blockade Battlefront, Su-Won in Yona of the Dawn, Bea in Space Dandy, Seido Takizawa in Tokyo Ghoul, and most recently, Nikolai Krasotkin in the Project Itoh film, The Empire of Corpses! It’s likely he’s done more but who’s counting?

Currently, he can be heard in Funimation’s SimulDubs as Kakeru Naruse in Orange, Yuri Plisetsky in Yuri!!! On ICE, Arata Kaizaki in ReLIFE, and Shun Kaidou in The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.
When he’s not busy posting unhelpful voice acting tips on Twitter, Micah works as the lead artist for Painapple Studio. Stalk him on the internet:

Her work includes Assassination Classroom (Rio Nakamura), Puzzle & Dragons X (Charo), Fairy Tail (Laki Olietta), Selector Infected WIXOSS (Yuzuki Kurebayashi), Shonen Maid (Chihiro Komiya), Robotics;Notes (Airi Yukifune), Noragami Aragoto (Young Ebisu), Barakamon (Tama), A Hat in Time (Hat Kid), and TOME: Terrain of Magical Expertise (Whyti).
