Hey gang, welcome back to our coverage of Anime Fest 2013! Earlier this week I gave you my general (and favorable) impressions of the convention. Well, while I was there I was able to interview three voice actors, two of whom I’ve spoken to before and was therefore able to follow up with. Usually I break these up, but since I have a lot of photos I want to share later, I’m lumping them all together. Below you’ll find the audio for interviews with Greg Ayres, Stephanie Young, and Terri Doty. After that are some special treats – videos of the post cosplay skit show entertainment where two Ani Idol contestants sang as everyone awaited the judging results.

I had no photos with her eyes open (I’m sorry Terri).

At the end of Sunday night’s Cosplay Skit Show, we were treated two a couple performances from Ani Idol contestants while the judges deliberated. I managed to be quick enough with my camera to record both, for anyone interested. The first is a performance by Drew (regular attendants of Anime Fest will immediately recognize him), and unfortunately I missed the names of the girls who performed second.

All I can remember about this one is that it’s Gundam related (….don’t quote me on that though), which is enough, really. Gundam’s a fan mainstay.

Anyway, this is the sort of fun you miss out on by skipping Anime Fest. Including a chance to meet the above voice actors and get their autographs, plus many more guests.

Stay tuned for more cosplay photos than you could possibly wish for!
