Ro, Ro: Katsuyuki "Kamina" Konishi to Hit Anime Expo

I am very excited for this guest.

I haven't been doing a lot of posts about new guests at conventions, but I thought you Gurren Lagann fans would be interested in this one-- actually, almost everyone should be able to point to at least ONE role by this newly-announced guest for Anime Expo 2010: Katsuyuki Konishi, perhaps most famous for playing Kamina in Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.

But the guy has done almost every kind of role imaginable, from a romantic bishounen (Skip Beat's Ren Tsuruga) to a mostly-comedic side character (D.Gray-Man's Komui Lee) to an admirably silent vampire (Blood+'s Hagi) to a Pokemon (Diamond & Pearl's Rayquaza).

In other words, the man is talented. You can bet I'll be trying to get some interview time with him at Expo, as well as hopefully attending his presentation of the first Gurren Lagann movie-- so, what do you want me to ask him to say on camera? (Besides "Ore wo dare ga to omottearu" / "Who the hell do you think I am"?)     
 
...Which I am totally not planning to get him to say so that I can cut the audio from the video and turn it into a ringtone. I swear.

Yep, sometimes the inner fangirl/ fanboy must be kept inside.
