Excerpted from the Announcement:
Johnny Yong Bosch
Voice Actor
People say you can't learn anything from movies. Johnny Yong Bosch proves that it's entirely possible. Johnny learned a great deal of his martial arts from watching the movies of Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee in his younger years. After taking on formal training, and winning a total of seven tournaments, he auditioned for a part in a new Fox Kids television show. Johnny was cast as Adam Park, the second Black Power Ranger, and continued playing the character through three incarnations of the show: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Power Rangers Zeo, and Power Rangers Turbo. Later, he turned toward his less physical talents and was cast as the voice of $$60 Billion Man, Vash The Stampede, in the American release of Trigun. To date, he can be found doing the voice of Reiji Kageyama, main villain of Gate Keepers.

An archangel and a sixteenth century astronomer doing a webcomic? Or just two guys with a little talent and a love for videogames? Under the guise of Gabe and Tycho, Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins have been doing Penny Arcade since 1998. From their humble beginnings at the PC game news site loonygames, Gabe and Tycho have made fun of virtually every aspect of videogame culture, and gained a huge following while doing so. In addition, they remain informative; reviewing import games in their Land Of The Rising Fun specials, and showing hardcore gamers how to set up the ultimate gaming rig in The Hook Up. This is only their second anime convention and they are very frightened. Be nice.
