Yes the voice actors. To be specific Yuko Miyamura, Tiffany Grant and Matt Greenfield will be attending.

They'll be attending the "Supanova Pop Culture Expo" in mid June, which i assume many of you already know.

Anyways i may be going, but being a shy and timid person (particularly with the ladies) and for the first time being able to physically be in the presence of Asuka's voice actors, i have not been able to think of any questions to ask them...

Is there anything i should ask in particular about Eva? Anyone here have a question they'd want to be answered?

Remember what we told Light about not abducting Miyamura?

Yeah, same goes for you!

Nice, Xard. That's nice.

I always see "and Matt Greenfield" when it comes to the Miyamura/Grant going to the same convention and I can't help but think that he must be the biggest third wheel of all time.

So, it's kind of, like... Asukas are coming to Australia. Is this, like, an annual thing for them now?

uh... What it was like to return for 2.X after such a long time?
Also, In Miyamura's case.... Q hints? How is the production progressing/to which degree is it finished? Also, ask if Asuka will do some cool stuff.
They won't tell us WHAT she'll do, but maybe we'll get something vaugue like "She'll do something surprising", "She'll have a large role" or "There will be a cool battle scene"...

Ask Tiff if whether she she considers the difference are from Soryu to Shikinami and whether she was asked to play the character any different from the orignal show.

Also ask her which was most batshit insane thing to work on out of EoE and Puni Puni Poemy.

Also I would be very much in your debt if you would ask whether her going to the UK is in the offing.

Yes, please.

Billing idea: "Featuring Yuko Miyamura, Tiffany Grant, and some guy with a mustache." Maybe someone will think it's Anno!! Can you say ticket sales??

@OP: Ask them to have an Asuka shout-off. With each other. And record it. Kind of like someone did for Princess Tutu voice actresses Nanae Katoh and Luci Christian, only with more "Anata baka??" and "What are you, stupid??"

No! Better yet! Get Miyamura to say her lines in English, and Grant to say her lines in Japanese! There will be hilarity enough for both cultures!

I would personally like: "This *insert date here* we have Yuko Miyamura, an batshit crazy lady from Texas and some other guy that no one cares about at *insert con here*" :tongue:

@ OP ask Yuko if she could have voiced any other character in Eva who would she have voiced instead and why. I guess you could ask Grant as well but the thought of voicing anyone but Asuka would probably make her catch on fire.

Huh, now I'm wondering if Seki Takayuki will show up too, and if he does if he and Yuko will go on a double date with Matt and Tiffany.

I've always gotten the impression that behind her crazed fangirl act, Tiffany Grant is secretly a pretty normal person. But don't tell her that, she'd probably be offended.

I also remember hearing at some point that pretty much every US voice actress who worked on Eva, including Tiffany Grant, initially wanted to play Misato. It's kind of ironic that AWL didn't get the part, since she is in many ways a real-life (and white) Misato Katsuragi.

Why odd? Seiyuu being married is not uncommon.... Or I missed something here?
I never thought I would come back to Evangelion after EoE,
But I discovered Re-Take (or it found me?) and
now here I am.

He means that it isn't odd that Tiffany and Matt travel together, like numerous people said in the thread.

So "they" did not include Miyamura? OK...

Don't know much about Tiffany and Matt... of course not they are married to each other... that explains..

Just wondering how often Miyamura travels to Australia? And when was the last time she's visited the US ?

They were in Sydney last year in attendance of the August '10 Smash! convention. I believe they also attended the Supernova Brisbane convention earlier this April.
