Bill Rogers - A Tribute

Last weekend, I had the great pleasure of finally attending AnimeNEXT.  It's one of those conventions that I've been wanting to attend for quite some time, but aside from having dinner with the awesome Adam Sheehan back in 2008 while he was attending, I'd never attended.

While at Zenkaikon this year, Marcellus Swint introduced me to some people at the convention, and convinced me to  attend (who is the voice behind the viral Toonami videos used to re-start the programming block; yeah, that's not Steve Blum you're hearing and I'll bet you couldn't tell the difference).

Long story short, I had a blast!  It was nice to meet Leah Clark, and even more so to see Michele Knotz, Kyle Hebert, and Kara Edwards again (and spending so much time with Sully and Marc).  Why the heck hadn't I been to this convention before?  I'm going to have to add this one to the calendar...

I would have to say that that this was the highlight of the weekend for me.  It seems that it was assumed that Bill Rogers would be attending the convention this year (he's been a regular guest for years).  Here's the problem with assumptions, they end up at OMGcon, as did Bill.

It really hit people hard that Bill couldn't make it to the convention.  So much so that they made a tribute video to let Bill know just how much his was missed.  As you can see by the interviews with the attendees, he was truly missed.
