Welcome some wonderful guests to Anime Halloween!
Anime Halloween will have some fantastic anime voice actors at the convention, who will be doing some fun and interesting panels. Many voice actors will talk about what it is like to work in the anime industry, and many will have autographs and merchandise available for you to buy too.

Robert L. Mungle
Both feared and revered, The Reverend Rob Mungle has been a staple of the stand-up comedy world since the early 1990s, when his brazen style and foul language caught the attention of comedy fans everywhere. He has remained in his native Houston for most of his life, helming the comedy scene there with an iron fist. His near-bloody conflicts with the IRS, anime fans, and strip-club managers have become the stuff of legend. Lately, he is best known for his anime voice-over work, notably in “Super Milk-Chan.”
