I haven’t greeted seiyuus in so long but of course, I can never miss to greet my favorite seiyuu 😀
Shimono Hiro is a seiyuu…
who always gets bullied by both his senpais and kouhais
whose voice is easily recognizable
who has had various amazing roles
who is always fun to watch and hear
who always amazes me whenever I hear him perform
who can make freestyle songs on the spot
who always works hard no matter what his roles are
who is really an expert in what he does
that I love to the core now and forever
Hiro, thank you for opening my eyes to the seiyuu world. Thank you for all the energy you gave me with your roles and your event participations. From now on, I hope you get a lot more job offers so that I may hear your voice more in various animes. I’ll always support you! 😁
Get along with Kaji-kun, Kiiyan, Tatsu and the other seiyuus now (I hope you get bullied more 😂)~ Love lots and I hope you enjoyed this day.
PS. Find Miss Right already. You’re not getting younger~~~ 😇😇

Eternal Summer, to name a few. Jerry is honored to have the opportunity to work with a very talented and dedicated group of people at FUNimation who take the quality of what they do very seriously. Well… seriously enough.
This will be Josh and Jerry’s first time at Kumoricon!!!
Top 10 funniest anime I've ever watched, in no particular order:
1. School Rumble
2. Baka and Test
3. Ouran Highschool Host Club
4. Good Luck Girl!
5.The Devil is a Part-Timer!
6. Is This a Zombie?
7. Nyan Koi
8. The Daily Lives of Highschool Boys
9. Fruits Basket
10. The Pet Girl of Sakurasou
all with phenomenal english dubs I might add(the ones that have dubs anyways)
If you haven’t seen these, you haven’t lived. Pure gold for an Otaku’s heart, especially if you’re like me and usually get stuck with feely anime. These shows are a wonderful break from those sad ones.
