Since his debut in Assemble Insert back in 2001, Bill has been providing voices to some of your favorite characters in some of your favorite shows. If you've watched KO Beast, His and Her Circumstances, Joe vs. Joe, Madara, To Heart, Gokudo, or Comic Party you've probably heard his voice. But he is best known for his work in Gravitation (Touma Seguch), Boogiepop Phantom (Yamamoto), Genshiken (Tanaka Souichiro), Shingu (Kanata Mouken) and more recently in The Third (Kevin). He can also be heard on Saturday mornings as the voice of Brock in Pokemon, (as well as various creatures that appear in that show).
Outside of the anime field, Bill has worked on the children's show Tarchin and Friends, and the series of Universal Safety Squad educational films.
In the world of video games, Bill has lent his voice to the X-Box game Bullet Witch as well as supplying the voices for Red, Yellow and other fun characters in m&m's Adventure and m&m's Kart Racing for the Wii console. He has also voiced various Pokemon including Bonsly, Weavile and the legendary Lucario in the Wii smash hit Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
An emerging act in the worlds of conventions, Karl "Uncle Yo" Custer writes material for otaku, video gamers, role players, Trekkies, Jedi, and comic book fanboys (and girls, we're not picky.)

From Project A-Ko to Xenogears , this guy has something for everyone. He has MCed the Cosplay Masquerade for the first New York Anime Fest, and has premiered all across New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and the Javits Center of NYC.
Michael Perreca is the proud voice actor of Sasahara in "Genshiken" and "Genshiken 2." He has also provided various voices for the anime series "Comic Party" (Teacher), "Gokudo" and "Gravitation."
