SMASH! President Andrew Qiu believes the attendance of a second voice actor at SMASH! 2016

demonstrates the “growing community of passionate manga and anime fans” within Australia.

“Year after year, voice-acting guests are a huge hit amongst SMASH! attendees,” Qiu said.

“With Australian fans well-informed of Japan’s latest animation releases, there is a significant demand

to bring Japanese voice talent from Japan. In doing so, SMASH! is the perfect platform for fans to meet

the actors behind the characters they love, and share their love for pop-culture in a unique way.”

Fans will have the opportunity to meet Miss Nonaka at the convention, and attend a special Q&A panel.

SMASH! Sydney Manga and Anime Show 2016 is a two-day convention to be held at Rosehill

Gardens on August 20th and 21st. For more information, visit www.smash.org.au.
