    About this post:- I don’t think it would be too presumptuous of me to say that anyone who is a part of this community is also in some form or another infatuated with this little thing from Nippon (Japan) called Anime. A Reviewer at myanimelist.net said that ‘Anime as a medium allows for the kind of stories to be told that is just not possible with any other medium.’ While for some watching Anime may only be a casual hobby, for some others it may be a source of compelling storytelling and then there may also be folks like me who are so greatly influenced by it that it forms a considerable part of their very personalities. I would never regret the day that I watched my first mainstream anime despite its questionable nature and if anything, I would wish I had seen it sooner than I did. Having seen anime has made me a better person in many, many ways. It was through anime that I learned a lot about life and it was also what introduced me to this community and to the wonderful people that strive to make our anime viewing experience as great as it can be. BUT, in addition to this, it was also through anime that I got to know about these other Amazing people that worked behind the scenes in creating each of ours’ favorite shows, and I must admit, finding very little to no posts/discussions about them or about the Anime Industry here left me a little disappointed. Hence, I have taken it upon my albeit small shoulders to introduce to everyone the people that were involved in the production of Anime and also the people about whom the following post is going to be about. ~English Dub Voice Actors~ J Michael Tatum (Wikipedia Page) {Notable Works:- Okabe Rintarou in Steins;Gate, Kraft Lawrence in Spice & Wolf, Sebastian in Black Butler, Issac Dian in Baccano, Erwin Smith in Attack on Titan, France in Hetalia and the list goes on forever.} About Him:- Probably the first Voice Actor that I discovered and also perhaps the one with the most fun panels. One particular youtuber says that she can watch him talk all day long and not be bored. Furthermore, if you want to become a voice actor yourself then his tale of how he himself got into the voice acting business could be the ideal example of what you should do too! If you don’t know who him very well then Start here:- Florida Supercon 2015: Meet J Michael Tatum, the Sassy Voice Actor J-FAX 2017:- Tatums wants to play Shere Khan in the Jungle Book - Knowledge of Steins;Gate, Attack on Titan, Black Butler recommended SacAnime Winter 2017: How Tatum Became a Professional Voice Actor – Ohayocon 2014: J Michael Tatum Panel - Part 1 / Part 2 / Part 3 - Knowledge of Steins;Gate Recommended ->Some of the more Recent stuff:- Steins;Gate in 60 Seconds with J Michael Tatum - Sort of like a promo for Steins;Gate 0 English Dub *CDawgVA:- ( Youtube Page ) About Him:- He’s a British person with a very similar voice to that of J Michael Tatum. He runs a Youtube channel where he calls fans while masquerading as Tatum and people think they are talking to the actual voice actor. Occasionally, he and J Michael Tatum have get-togethers where they play all kinds of pranks on fans and also on each other. *Moderate level of familiarity with J Michael Tatum required for best experience* Notable Videos:- J Michael Tatum's Interview with Crazy Fan – Viewer Discretion Advised (pun intended) J Michael Tatum's Interview with Crazy Fan BLOOPERS!

He was involved with the Opera as a kid, is classically trained as an opera singer, learned several kinds of acting techniques and done theater too!! His fetishes include talking about How to get into Voice Acting, Mythology, the Anime Industry and Story-telling Animation. He also runs a Voice Acting Mastery podcast for people wishing to become a voice actor and I would recommend checking out his website -http://www.voiceactingmastery.com/ either way because it is really, really very good. {Notable Roles:- Alucard in the Hellsing Franchise, Shizuo Hewajima in the Durarara franchise, Kirei Kotomine in the Fate Franchise} *Knowledge of the Hellsing Franchise, specifically Hellsing Ultimate is Highly Recommended for Best Experience* If you don't know him very well then start here:- Metrocon 2012: Crispin Freeman Panel - This particular video is also great for understanding the Anime Industry in the US and the Challenges of adapting an anime in English. A Very Informative Panel in general. Hellsing Panel with Funimation – Recommended strictly for people who have at least watched Hellsing Ultimate. This video is also great for learning about the unique production issues involved with Hellsing. Vic Mignogna ( Wikipedia Page ) {Notable Works:- Edward Elric in the Fullmetal Alchemist Franchise, Tamaki Suoh in Ouran Highschool Host-Club and a lot of other characters in all kinds of anime shows} About him:- A Veteran Voice actor, a very nice human being and a great singer!
