The rest of this post is probably the dorkiest thing (dorkier even than this and this) you'll read all week. Maybe even all year.
( I met Jounouchi's voice actor. And got his autograph.Collapse )
And - he was really nice. He was very warm, and very sweet, and even cuter in person than he was on stage. Just like the perfect boyfriend who you can't wait to bring home to meet your parents. Because it was the last night, all the main cast came out to sign autographs, and being the first in line meant that there was time to actually talk to the cast. So. I. Er. This happened about halfway through the conversation:
Me: "I've heard your voice acting work, and I think it's great!" (you know, I thought it was going to end there, and then I'd go)
Him: "Oh, wow! Which role was that?" (he is so genki, and so cute, IRL)
Me: *DIES INSIDE ABOUT A THOUSAND TIMES* "... Joey. From Yu-Gi-Oh."
Him: "Oh, Joey!" *grin* *switches voice* " 'Hey, Joey! Dude, what's up?' "
*switches voice again* " 'Joey! Watch out!' "
Me: *TOTAL INTERNAL EXPLOSION*
And so I was, "I read you were trained overseas, so is that how you got your accent?"
Her: "Oh! Are you a voice actor, too?" *smiles*
Me: *grin!* "Uh, no, actually, I'm a trainee lawyer."
Her: *grins* "A lawyer? Don't worry, all lawyers become actors in the end."
