Setsucon would like to welcome this year's special guests!
Charles Dunbar is a fan of many things, of which anime and Japanese culture are but one (admittedly large) sphere. After discovering the medium through Dragonball Z in high school, he spent his formative college years indulging in giant robots, Pokémon, JRPGs, and Rurouni Kenshin, never expecting his coursework in cultural anthropology to ever intersect with his burgeoning fandom identity. This was only the first of many instances when the Universe decided to troll him for his obliviousness. He's also been attending cons just as long, and has been a guest lecturer at Katsucon, Ohayocon, Colossalcon, Youmacon, Anime Boston, Otakon, AnimeNEXT, Anime North, and many other shows, often coming back year after year to both indulge his love of anime conventions, and educate his fellow fans on all manner of mythology, Japanese sacred culture, fan cultures, and whatever else grabs his interests. He is currently working on a series of short books based around his lectures, writing yōkai stories, and adapting his lectures for YouTube. You can read his ideas at www.studyofanime.com or via Facebook.com/StudyofAnime.
He may not have magical powers but Micah Solusod is a fair-trade, free range professional voice actor and illustrator.

Since then, he has gone on to voice characters such as Yuichiro Hyakuya in Seraph of the End, Toma Kamijo in A Certain Magical Index, Yuri Plisetsky in Yuri!!! On Ice, Akito Hyuga in Code Geass: Akito the Exiled, Yukine in Noragami, Midnight in Fairy Tail, Coby in One Piece, Wisely in D.Gray-Man Hallow, Tagoma in Dragon Ball Super, Mizuki in Kamisama Kiss, Ame in Wolf Children, Arata Kaizaki in ReLIFE, Gakushu Asano in Assassination Classroom, Kakeru Naruse in Orange, Black/King of Despair in Blood Blockade Battlefront, Cho Hakkai in Saiyuki Reload Blast, Bea in Space Dandy, Seido Takizawa in Tokyo Ghoul, and most recently, Haruhiko Ichijo in Myriad Colors Phantom World! It's likely he's done more but who's counting?
When he's not posting unhelpful voice acting tips on Twitter, Micah works as the lead artist for the webcomic “Ties That Bind.” Stalk him on the internet:
