"Vitamin H Productions is the professional panelist group that has been sweeping the South. Founded in 2013 by Kidd “The Maniac” Bowyer and Ryan “Pathos” Prime and fueled by a love of all things geeky, Vitamin H aims to create the most memorable convention programming you've ever experienced (and give folks at cons who might not be into Q&As and cosplay something to actually DO besides sit in the game room and play Cards Against Humanity for hours on end).

They’ve appeared at dozens of conventions all across the nation, bringing a wildly diverse array of content that is both educational AND entertaining.  From ancient history to tacky B-movies, from obscure gaming treasures to nostalgic anime and fandoms that you don't normally see at conventions, Vitamin H tackles every subject with an unbelievable amount of passion, energy, and professionalism - no dull stock-template PowerPoints or monotone delivery here!  

If you’re looking for the cure for con boredom, then you need your daily dose of Vitamin H.

When they're not frantically preparing for a con, you can find them tooling around on their website - http://vitaminh.info - so be sure to check them out!"

Since then, Mr. Axelrod has appeared in over thirty feature films including four with Charles Bronson, the Sci-Fi hit remake “The Blob” with Kevin Dillon and  many others.  Television appearances include guest star roles on “Amazing Stories”, “Star Trek Voyager”, “Tim And Eric’s Awesome Show”, and “The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.  He also starred in the Michael Jackson music video “Stranger in Moscow”, and is in the soon-to-be-released horror dark comedy, “The Revenant”.

 

Mr. Axelrod is also a busy voice over artist.  He is the voice of Lord Zedd and Finster on the “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers”.  The Lord Zedd voice is one of the most recognizable character voices around.  He voiced Armadillomon and Wizardmon on “Digimon, Microchip, The Punisher’s sidekick, on “Spiderman”, Rico on “Robotech”,  and has voiced countless Anime features including “Akira”, “The Big O”, “Cowboy Bebop”, “Brain Scratch”, et al.  As Lord Zedd, he starred in both the first Power Rangers feature film and the wildly popular live show that toured the country.  He was a regular character on Saban Entertainment’s “Wowser” series (as Ratso Catso), “Journey To The Heart of the World” (as Scarface), “Hallo Spencer” (as Elmer), and more.  He just finished narrating the mockumentary “Safety First: The Rise of Women and voicing four Anime series, “Gaiking”, “Danguard Ace”, “Captain Horlock”, “The Adventures of Nadja”, and “Fist of the North Star”.

 

 

Austin Tindle is a writer and actor living in Dallas, Texas. He was born in Orlando, Florida, raised in Austin, Texas and attended UTD on academic scholarship, where he almost became an Electrical Engineer.

Maybe you've seen him on stage around Dallas at Kitchendog Theatre, WaterTower Theatre, Theatre Three, Stage West, Shakespeare Dallas, Project X, Second Thought Theatre, Nouveau 47, Upstart Theatre, and many others. But he’s probably most well-known for his work with Funimation Studios, where he has voiced many characters including Ayumu Aikawa in “Is this a Zombie?”, Accelerator in “A Certain Magical Index”, Shu Ouma in “Guilty Crown”, Marco Bodt in "Attack on Titan", Karma in "Assassination Classroom", and Kaneki in "Tokyo Ghoul". And Austin has been a proud member of the Couchsurfing community since 2011. He just really loves couches.

Tokyo Attack is a collaboration of music game enthusiasts looking to give back to the community and share rare music games with people who will normally never get a chance to play them. We are excited to be partnering with them again.
Greg Wicker (or “Greggo” as he’s fondly known) has been producing and hosting game shows at anime conventions since 1999, when he premiered Anime Match Game at Project A-Kon in Dallas. Since then, Greggo has done anime-themed versions of several classic game shows, created a few games of his own, and even had an original project that very nearly turned into an actual television show on Anime Network. These days Greggo is concentrating on perfecting his craft and making game shows available for conventions everywhere, bringing his rapier wit and friendly personality with him wherever he goes.

The Carolina Manga Library is a non-profit organization that sets up free libraries at conventions for all attendees to enjoy. They bring over 3000 manga, American graphic novels, webcomics, and novels for fans to enjoy. By setting up a quiet place for people to relax at conventions, the Library seeks to promote literacy through the medium that they love. The Library was founded in 2013, debuting at Nashicon in Columbia, South Carolina. Since then, the Library has been guests at conventions all over the Southern states and their collection becomes larger with every passing month, having expanded to all forms of graphic novels. Their expert staff of librarians and library assistants are also experts in all things manga and graphic novels, so feel free to ask them for recommendations for new series!

Back in 2009, we bought our first pachinko machine for engaging fans at our convention table. The rest is history, as we now own over 30 machines, in various stages of restoration. Pachinko is Japanese pinball, Japan's favorite pastime. Its been one of their most popular leisure activities for nearly a hundred years.Come visit our parlor that works just like it does in Japan (minus the Yakuza), where you buy balls to play with, and redeem your winnings for prizes much like an American arcade. Our machines represent the history and evolution of pachinko over the last 60 years with machines dating from 1951 up to 2015, so we have a machine for everyone! Come try your hand at some great prizes and experience this really fun part of Japanese culture first hand with Pachinko Fever!
