Anime Fargo is proud to welcome Ray Chase, Morgan Berry, Sapphire,
The Kamikaze Snowmen, and (of course) our good friend Paul St. Peter!
Ray Chase is best known for his versatility as a voice actor in video games, animation, and feature films. He’s played countless protagonists in JRPGs, starting with Noctis in Final Fantasy XV (2016), and brought his same cinematic energy to Brother Nier in NieR Replicant: ver.1.22474487139… (2021), and Alphen in Tales of Arise (2021). On the flip side he’s played wildly different and iconic roles such as brave Roy in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (2018), evil Sukuna in Jujutsu Kaisen (2020), the corporate Rhys Strongfork in Borderlands 3 (2019), the devious Master of Masters in Kingdom Hearts III (2019), mafioso Bruno Bucciarati in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (2012), and the flamboyant Puri Puri Prisoner in One Punch Man (2015).
He got his start making YouTube videos and working on audiobooks, narrating over a hundred before setting his sights on breaking into voice acting. After getting some small roles in anime, his first big break came with Noctis in 2016. After making dozens of appearances in more anime and games, he’s begun to break into feature films. In 2021, director James Wan chose him to give voice to the sinister Gabriel in Malignant (2021), imbuing the antagonist with dramatic flair.
He is a con fixture making appearances all over the world with his show “Loud, Annoying, and Very Annoying” (LAVA) with fellow voice actors Robbie Daymond and Max Mittelman. They stream weekly on Twitch playing games they have made appearances in.

The Kamikaze Snowmen
The Kamikaze Snowmen originally began in 1993 as a fun improvisational pastime between three junior high friends. The group evolved in the late 1990s-early 2000s into an indie comedy band, recording albums and playing live shows at coffee houses and college campus events. In the 2010s the Snowmen found a kinship with comedians and a home at conventions. Over the years they’ve grown their repertoire to include comedy showcases, hosting opening/closing ceremonies and cosplay contests, moderating panels with other guests, game shows, trivia, music video shoots, and more. The group now consists of primary members Paul Tebben and Josh Trumbo, with alum Terry Bown II still appearing on album tracks when able. Taking cues from classic vaudeville and adapting various pop-culture landmarks into their music, The Kamikaze Snowmen provide inclusive and interactive content perfect for any convention setting.
