Ai-Kon is happy to announce our first round of guests!

Returning for his 8th year to Ai-Kon, we would love to welcome back Greg Ayres!
Greg Ayres has spent the last fifteen years working in an industry he had admired for years as a fan. With over 200 credits to his name, this fan-boy has managed to get to play a variety of characters that are almost as colorful as his hair.
He’s thrilled to splash his way into 2015 in the role of Nagisa Haruki in Free Eternal Summer, and equally as excited to make “killer” appearances as MonoKuma in Danganronpa and Doug in Gangsta. He was thrilled to be a part of the Toonami re-launch in the roles of Ganta Igarashi in Deadman Wonderland and Heihachi Hayashida in Samurai 7, and even more thrill to follow that up with the following summer’s thriller Another as Kouichi Sakakibara. His most recent roles include Clear in Dramatical Murder, Satoru Asahina in From the New World, Kenji Nakanishi in Say I Love You, Sion in No. 6, Heisuke Toudou in Hakuoki, Tommyrod in Toriko, Arikawa in This Boy Can Fight Aliens, Tomoki Sakurai, in Heaven’s Lost Property, and Volken, in the Book of Bantorra.

A native Texan and avid anime fan, Josh Grelle has been working in voice work for over 10 years.
After starting with ADV Films in January 2004, Josh was quickly bombarded with tons of in-booth experience on a wide range of shows, including Wedding Peach, Steam Detectives, 009-1, and the legendary Gatchaman. He began working for FUNimation Entertainment in 2006. Since then, he has starred in numerous titles; his most famous being Kenichi in Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple.
Other roles include Armin in Attack on Titan, Kyohei in the Wallflower, Kouichi in Linebarrles of Iron, Yuki in Future Diary, Itsuki in Initial D, and Kuranosuke in Princess Jellyfish.

Aside from anime, Josh has lent his voice to a number of video games, including Sima Shi in Dynasty Warriors 7, Xbalanque in Smite, Dave in Borderlands 2, and the voice of the "energetic" custom character in Dragonball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi. Josh is represented by The Mary Collins Agency.
