Monica Rial scheduled for Orlando MegaCon

Monica Rial, Tomoko's American voice, is slated to be at the ginormous MegaCon in Orlando, Florida in May. Other guests will include Adam West and Burt Ward, Stan Lee, and a bunch of the original Star Trek crew (including Captain Kirk himself).

She is still slated for Anime Boston later this month.

Rial is known as one of the most prolific voice actors in the US, and proudly brags that she's been "keeping child actors out of work since the 90's." For the WataMote anime, she did not try to copy Kitta Izumi's voice, but rather summoned up a sort of American version that perfectly fit Tomoko's various swings, from her stuttering shyness to her mean streak.
