Anime Boston is an annual three-day Japanese animation convention held in Boston, Massachusetts. Anime Boston 2008 will be held Friday, March 21 through Sunday, March 23 at the Hynes Convention Center and Boston Marriott Copley Place. Anime Boston announced its second round of guests and surprisingly it was announced that Tom Wayland would be attending and that he's the new Voice Director for the English dub of Pokemon. Hopefully people in the Boston area will be able to ask him some questions about dubbing Pokemon. More information about Anime Boston can be found at http://www.animeboston.com.
