Recently I have managed to procure a one-day pass AND transportation, however far we may have to travel, to the famed Comic Con, where it has been hinted at that Vic Mignogna, voice of Edward Elric, will be presiding for autographs and handshakes, this very Friday. My mission, which I have chosen to accept, is to find him and obtain both of these fabled things. Whatever else may dwell within the confines to the daily events must take a backseat to this glorious undertaking.

Secondary objectives include tallying how many people think I'm "From" something.

Wish me luck.

Wow, good luck with that! happy.gif That's really awesome, getting to meet Vic in person, not to mention getting an autograph and a handshake from him.

I'd sure wish I was in your shoes! XD

Best wishes Nepharski. I hope that you have a great time at Comic Con. I had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with Vic at Otakon 2005 and he seemed like a really nice man. It was also a great experience to get to watch them do the dub for episode twenty-seven. I hope that you do not run into any crazed fangirls...they are most certainly frightening.

Thank you, my friends and comrades. I have returned victorious! I found where the signing was to take place just in time to get a good spot in line, and there he was. Shook his hand (twice), got four promo posters signed and the front page of the FMA Manga's Profiles, and even a photo (Disposable camera, not digial, so don't expect to see the prints any time soon).

Very nice guy. Polite and everything.

Anyone have any FMA related questions concerning the Con?

I think that it was awesome that you got a chance to meet the man behind your favorite character, Edward Elric, and I bet you had a wonderful time just being at the Comic Con. I actually have a oppurtunity to meet Vic Mignonga and Travis Willingham myself, since they're coming to an convention that is held near where I live. I almost decided to go, but it just wouldn't be the right time, for my life will not allow it. I hope to see them in the future though. ^.^

Anyways, whenever you get the chance to develop those pictures, make sure to post them. Also, what did he say?

So...what was it like being with Vic? biggrin.gif Did he tell you anything about his experiences as a voice actor, especially on FMA? I'm sure you had a great time, and I'm happy for you...if also a little envious. XD

Actually, I didn't have a lot of time to talk. See, there was an mob of people lined to to see him and Aaron, so we didn't exactly get to take five and tea, you know? Still, he was really polite and enthusiastic. He'd made jokes with a lot of the people in line. He asked my name and when I told him, he signed one of my things "Thanks Andrew." Very amiable.

I'll see if I can scan some of the signatures later.

Vic certainly sounds like a pleasant person from what I hear from him. My friends got to meet him in person, so they also told me their experiences.

Although I prefer Romi Paku's job on Edo, I wouldn't mind meeting him. :) Hopefully he'll be at Oni-con.

I am glad that you had such a great time at the convention Nepharski. I'm happy that you got to meet Vic and not only get autographs but pictures as well. I still have my Conqueror of Shambala poster that he signed "Not a Shrimp."

Ha ha ha. Some of us in line were planning on telling that he's "Not as short as he sounds," but I forget to mention it. On the plus side, I got Vic (and Aaron) to sign a lot of things. Everyone in line was allowed up to five signatures. A guy in front of me had five volumes of the Manga under his arm. FMA was widespread around the Con, so there were four different locations to get free FMA posters from the series and the movie. I got all four, so he signed all four.

That's great that they were giving out free poster. At Otakon you have to pay for everything. I rather like my movie poster even though I cannot seem to find it anywhere else.

That sucks. You really should come to the Comic Con one of these years. They know the true value of "Freebies." You get all kinds of crazy stuff just for walking through the doors.

Oh, and one other nifty feature I forgot to mention: Funimation had a huge area set aside for the Conqueror movie, and they played different clips from the English translation, as well as an video interview with plenty of VA cast members from the series.
