Message from Asami Shimoda

Hello everyone. Nice to meet you. I'm Asami Shimoda, and I'm a voice actress. When it was decided that I would be attending Anime North, I was so happy it felt like I just won the lottery. I have been to an oversea event once in the past, but it will be my first time visiting Canada. I will be with a translator, but I would like to be able to say something in a language the locals understand. I'm not sure I will be able to speak correctly, but please be nice and watch over me (laughs). I hope I'll get a chance to talk to everyone, I'm looking forward to it. I'm very excited to meet a lot of people for the first time, and wonder what kind of people I will get to meet. Those who are going from Japan,I realize it's a lot of trouble, but your support really encourages me! Since it's a rare chance, I want to eat delicious food and see the beautiful scenery too! Oh, and what souvenir should I get? I'm just so excited! I hope the weather will be good, and that everyone will be in a good health when we meet. I will go in perfect condition too☆

Thank you!
