Should we expect any major reveals from KamehaCon?

Post by mecha3000 » Thu Jan 25, 2018 8:18 pm

I know this convention is strictly a Texas thing by fans that is not at all affiliated with Toei, but still: Think we can expect anything? I know it wouldn't be related to a new series or an announcement from Toei, but perhaps maybe Funimation will announce new DB releases? Or perhaps, even reveal something else - like exclusive dub footage from the Future Trunks Arc for attendees only. I'm just wondering if there will be anything interesting besides just being a DB convention?

I'm super excited for this convention, I live in Canada, and I'm making my way to Irving for the weekend.
I even bought VIP tickets.

It seems to be a Funimation convention, I'd expect at least one announcement in relation to possible Funimation DB releases.

I'm pumped to hear more news about this convention.

I think the most likely news from Funimation would be Dragon Ball Super Part 4 or Dragon Ball Z Kai Seasons 5 & 6.
A pipe dream announcement would be Dragon Box, GT Blu Ray, or Rock The Dragon Blu Ray.

It is not a Funimation convention. It is a fan-owned and operated convention. Funimation's voice actors are involved, but not the company itself.

As far as news stuff... difficult to say right now because things change weekly.

It's a first-year fan-run convention. Go in expecting no sort of official presence and be surprised if you get something.
"I like the money it brings in, but Dragon Ball Heroes is the worst. That's actually the real reason I decided to start working on new material. I was afraid Bandai would make something irredeemably stupid like Super Saiyan 4 Broly." - Akira Toriyama, made up interview, 2013.

Personally, I'd prefer a Westwood/Blue Water dub boxset. A Rock The Dragon Blu-Ray honestly wouldn't interest me all that much, and really, I don't think it would have any real chance of happening. I could see something like that being a bonus feature on a Blu-Ray release via branching, but I don't think a standalone Rock The Dragon BD would be all that worth it.

But no, I don't expect any major reveals. I imagine it'll be a fun time; the voice actors will probably have a lot of fun stories to tell, the panels will probably kick a lot of ass, but I don't imagine any big announcements will happen.

I hope there'll be some good recordings of the panels. That'll soften the blow of the fact I can't go.
The point of Dragon Ball is to enjoy it. Never lose sight of that.

Thanks for the clarification.

Also i'm a huge fan... Keep the videos coming man... slight fangasm seeing you reply to me hahaha.

Do you have any inside information regarding kamehacon, (that can be shared) such as what the T-shirts, bags, badges and lanyards look like?
Do you know if their is talks or attempts on bringing in Japanese talent such as voice actors, animators, etc?

I'll tell you a funny story.

The original lanyard/bag design had to be redone because somebody leaked the first image and it wound up on pirated merch. So you'll get a new design soon.

And Yes.. There is talk. Bringing in the Japanese is VERY VERY hard. You have no idea and i mean beyond the language barrier. And you have to go through their agents and some don't speak English.

Obviously i cant release any information I'm not allowed to release, but i can tell you that panels will feature several OGs from this board - including Devil's Corpse, Kendamu, Gaffer Tape, and Ajay. So if you come, you meet them and check out their panel.

I know it's tough trying to bring in Japanese voice actors, but I would've immediately gotten my tickets if Masako Nozawa was coming! Because it would be such an honor to meet such a legend.
Caulifla best girl! :)

If I could meet Akira Toriyama ...life would be complete.

And Emmy Rossum would be neat... since she's the hottest version of Bulma.

I just want to make this VERY VERY clear.

I am NOT INVOLVED in any of the planning for this convention or guest booking outside of hosting the con and organizing the panels.

Any decisions made internally are not made by me. I can make suggestions from time to time, but outside of that, I am not involved in that beyond hosting.

I hope that you at least tells more information about the con when you are allowed to.
