The second guest for SMASH! 2018 is Japanese voice actor Ryotaro Okiayu from Aoni Production.
With a career that spans over twenty years, RYOTARO OKIAYU has worked on numerous titles across the anime, dubbing, and gaming industries. He is particularly well known for his depictions of charismatic, masculine characters.
Many generations will recognise his works and he is best known for his roles as Scar (Fullmetal Alchemist), Byakuya Kuchiki (Bleach), Akio Furukawa (Clannad), and Tezuka (Prince of Tennis) among others.
Joining him will be Mon, one of the most well known cosplayers in the world with over 150,000 dedicated followers across the globe.
Originating from Thailand, she is famous for her doll-like appearance which is a prevalent feature present across most of her works.
Her most popular cosplays include characters such as the vocaloid Hatsune Miku, Mikasa Ackerman (Attack on Titan) and Rem (Re:Zero), all of which were hand-crafted and enhanced through creative wig-styling and makeup techniques.
SMASH! 2018 is a two-day convention on July 14th and 15th at the ICC Sydney Exhibition Centre in Darling Harbour. You can purchase tickets on the day or online from $41 for a day pass to $56 for a weekend pass.
