The November 19 issue of the Honolulu Star Bulletin newspaper has announced that Hawaii's Kawaii Kon will host Yūko Miyamura, the actress best known for voicing Sohryu Asuka Langley in the Evangelion science fiction franchise, on April 18-20, 2008.
In addition to Asuka and numerous other anime credits, Miyamura also voiced Chun Li in several games of the Street Fighter franchise and appeared in the video that explained the deadly game rules in the live-action Battle Royale film. Her songs have been used for the themes of My-HiME, Wedding Peach, and other series in which she also acted. Her Japanese fans know her by her nickname, "Miyamū." Kawaii Kon will be her first American convention appearance.
Miyamura will join Tiffany Grant, Asuka's English voice and another guest of the Kawaii Kon. Other guests include Mari Iijima, the singing and acting voice of Lynn Minmay in both the English and Japanese versions of the Macross science fiction franchise.
