Voice Actor Jamie Marchi

It’s Feature Friday, and we are ecstatic to let you know we asked voice actor and director Jamie Marchi to visit us in January, and she said yes!

Marchi voiced the titular Panty in Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, Cana Alberona in Fairy Tail, Liz Thompson in Soul Eater, Gou Matsuoka in Free! Iwatobi Swim Club and Free! Eternal Summer, and the narrator in Hetalia: Axis Powers. Marchi also has credits in a number of other anime, including Witchblade, Baka and Test, Spice and Wolf, Sgt. Frog, Rosario + Vampire, Romeo X Juliet, and several more.

Read all about her on her bio page, and check back next Feature Friday to learn about our next Ohayocon 2018 guest!

There is a myth, a dark fairy tale spoken of only in whispers, retelling a haunting time in Ohayocon’s past. This tale retells a miserable year where the music stopped – where the artfully arranged clips of anime characters froze in time. I’m speaking of none other than 2017, the Ohayocon without an AMV competition. Do not fear, dear readers! For I am not here in this news section nobody reads to only tell you of woeful, bad things! I am a bringer of hope! I come with tidings of great AMVs and bountiful competitions of skill! I am here to say this….
AMVS ARE BACK, BABY!

Vitamin H is officially coming to Ohayocon 2018 and bringing their fabulous array of informative panels and dumb really good jokes! We’re also, obviously, excited to announce they will be hosting our 2018 AMV competition!

Why not give their official bio a look HERE?
