Anime Expo 1996

Anime Expo 1996 was a huge success: over 3000 people attended the convention. Ten Guests of Honor took time from their busy schedules to come from Japan to meet their fans.

Especially pleasing to me was the presence of two seiyuu, or voice actresses, Ms. Ai Orikasa, and Ms. Yumi Takada, who provide the voices for Ryouko and Aeka from Tenchi Muyou.
