According to their website, Otakon has announced that award winning director, animator, and voice actor Makoto Shinkai will appear as a guest at this year's convention.

Otakon is the second largest anime convention in North America second only to Anime Expo. This year it will be held from July 29 - July 31 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Maryland. Other guests to be at Otakon this year include Johnny Yong Bosch, CHEMISTRY, Tony Oliver, Lisa Ortiz, and Tom Wayland.

Makoto Shinkai's newest movie, Children who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below, was released this past May.

I'd probably be having a seizure if I got to see Shinkai in person.

Oh how I wish I could go...the man is a genius and one of my role-models, and it'd be a huge honor to meet him.

I live in Arizona and we never get any international voice-actors, directors, anything, here. I'd have to go to AX but I wish I could go. I don't have enough money to make a trip for it.
Los Angeles mostly gets everything but Maryland?! I never expected it!
