Anime Expo 2017 Invites Fans to Vote for Guests

Anime Expo is a hell of a convention. Being the largest anime convention in the country, it’s hosts an array of amazing guests from artists to voice actors to directors and more. That being the case, I think it’s pretty incredible that Anime Expo...


Chattin’ with Chris Patton

While attending the 2016 Nan Desu Kan in Denver, CO we met up with a favorite voice actor of ours, Chris Patton. Sorry for the potato quality everyone, we forgot to bring our tripod with us and the camera had a difficult time focusing....


BentoByte Will Be At Nan Desu Kan 2016

Hello everyone! As you all may have surmised at this point, we are constantly going to cons (as is evident with our cosplay photos). This labor day weekend we (a few of us) will be at Denver’s Nan Desu Kan. So if you think...


Anime Expo 2016 Thoughts & Impressions

Anime Expo 2016 was the first Anime Expo I have been able to attend and I have to say upfront that it was not quite like anything I’ve experienced. I’ve been to plenty of conventions and thought I understood what I was getting into when...


The Day 4 Cosplayers of Anime Expo 2016

This has taken us quite some time. As far as conventions go, Anime Expo has certainly been the longest one of all. But it has been a fun one. Although we must say goodbye to Los Angeles, at the very least, we get to...


The Day 3 Cosplayers of Anime Expo 2016

Well, that certainly took a while to process all of the pictures from day 3 of Anime Expo! Now that they are ready, get a look at all the beautiful people (and cosplay) we met while running about. As always, if you would like...


Exploring the Academic Panels of Anime Expo 2016

There are a lot of things to do at Anime Expo, which takes places every year around the 4th of July. You can wander the hallways and admire some beautiful cosplay, shop for some cool and exclusive merchandise, or visit any number of panels...


The Video Games of Anime Expo 2016

Last year when I visited Anime Expo, I didn’t have the time to set down and play the video games on display because my focus was on attending panels. For Anime Expo 2016, I decided to correct that mistake, and so I set out to...


The Beginner’s Guide to Anime Expo

So you’re thinking about attending Anime Expo for the first time, huh? While it can seem a bit overwhelming first, especially if you’ve never been to any other conventions, it’s actually not too bad. The goal of this guide is largely to give new attendees...


The Day 1 Cosplayers of Anime Expo 2016

Every year we try to run about and meet as many people as possible at conventions and get shots of the spectacular outfits they work so hard on. While attending our second year at the Los Angeles Anime Expo we managed to meet just...


The Day 3 Cosplayers of Denver Comic Con 2016

The last installment of this three part series of pictures from the Denver Comic Con will be shorter (we promise). At the final day of DCC 2016, the outdoors hit a hundred (which is a lot in Colorado) and those that were not baking...


The Day 2 Cosplayers of Denver Comic Con 2016

And we are back in the second of three installments of cosplay photos from this year’s Denver Comic Con. It is going to be a huge post (around 90 or so images) so bear with us. We refuse to be one of those “slideshow”...


The Denver Comic Con 2016 Day 1 Cosplayers

It is that time of year again. While attending this year’s Denver Comic Con we did our best to run about and get as many cosplay photos as humanly possible. As we were not able to make it to the whole first day, this...



2 vs 2 with Blake Shepard and Samantha Inoue-Harte [Video]

After the prior interview with Samantha Inoue-Harte was interrupted, we picked things back up with her and Blake Shepard. So, to start things out while we were at Anime Southwest, we dove back in to asking about everything that goes into being a voice actor....
