The teasers have commenced! SMASH is on its way back to Sydney for yet another year and the big names are starting to hit the SMASH website. The first two guests for SMASH! 2018 have been announced over the past week and first is Japanese voice actor Ryotaro Okiayu from Aoni Productions. 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.
SMASH! 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 via the SMASH website.
The Asian Pop Radio team are looking forward to attending the event this year which will be on the back of us being official radio partner to Animaga Expo in Melbourne in 2017. That experience was one of the most incredible partnerships we have worked on in our time of being on this earth and we're sure that Sydney's best pop culture event is inevitably going to match or exceed the excitement of events that have gone before it again in 2018!
To get you pumped for a huge weekend of events in July, take a trip down memory lane now and enjoy some of our Animaga Expo highlights from 2017.
