Convention takes place in Jakarta on August 18-20

The Anime Festival Asia convention announced on Tuesday that it will host voice actors Satoshi Tsuruoka, Tohru Furuya, and Saki Ono.

Tsuruoka made his major debut as a voice actor in the Hikarian - Great Railroad Protector anime in 1997, voicing the role of E4. He is voicing the role of Berserker of Red in the currently airing Fate/Apocrypha anime. He has also voiced roles for such anime as Hatsumei Boy Kanipan (BK), Medabots (Sumillidon), Tennis no Oujisama: Atobe Kara no Okurimono (Munehiro Kabaji), Fate/Zero (Caster), Maken-Ki! Battling Venus (Kengo Usui), Akame ga KILL! (Zank), A Good Librarian Like a Good Shepherd (Gizaemon), The Eden of Grisaia (Heath Oslo), and Big Order (Gennai Hoshimiya).

Furuya is perhaps best known for his role as Mobile Suit Gundam protagonist Amuro Ray. He also voiced Tuxedo Mask in Sailor Moon. Since his debut, Furuya has voiced roles in such anime as Kotetsu Zieg (Kotetsu Shiba), Shin Kyojin no Hoshi (Hyuma Hoshi), Swiss Family Robinson (Franz), Queen Millennia (Daisuke Yamori), Arcadia of My Youth: Endless Orbit SSX (Fader Zone), Harmagedon (Jō Azuma), Dragon Ball (Yamcha), Kimagure Orange Road (Kyosuke Kasuga), Saint Seiya (Pegasus Seiya), Marmalade Boy (Shin'ichi Namura), Dr. Slump (Suppaman), One Piece (Sabo), and Mobile Suit Gundam 00 (Ribbons Almark). His role in Mobile Suit Gundam 00 remains his only work related to the Gundam franchise set in a continuity outside of the original Universal Century.

Ono is perhaps best known as the voice of Common Raccoon in the recent winter anime Kemono Friends. Ono made her first major role debut in the Himegoto anime as President Unko, and had her first leading role as protagonist Hakone in the Onsen Yōsei Hakone-chan anime in 2015. She also voiced the character Romi Oze in Venus Project: Climax. She also performed as part of the I My Me Mine group to perform the theme songs for the Himegoto anime, and similarly performed as part of the Dōbutsu Biscuit x PPP group to perform the opening theme song of the Kemono Friends anime.

The convention is one of five in content company Sotsu Co., Ltd. and Singaporean events and marketing agency SOZO Pte Ltd.'s "C3 AFA" joint events that bring together their C3 and Anime Festival Asia events. Aside from Jakarta, Indonesia, the events will also run in Thailand, Japan, Singapore, and Hong Kong.
