C3 in Hong Kong event occurred just over last weekend. As with the previous years, various people were invited for talks or concerts on stage. For this year's C3 in Hong Kong event, the seiyuu (voice actor) of Char Aznable, Shuichi Ikeda (池田秀一) was invited for a staged interview. This time it's mainly on his performance as Full Frontal in Gundam UC OVA series, of which the 6th episode was released worldwide this month.
The pictures in the post are from those with press passes, as the programme specifically mentions no photography or film recording allowed for normal attendees. >_<;

Watching excerpts of Gundam UC featuring Full Frontal and the character's voicework
Lam Po Chuen, the Hong Kong voice actor for Amuro Ray. He is perhaps much more well known for voicing Doraemon, a role he is still performing from 1980 to this day!
Ikeda's responses are brief and concise compared to Toru Furuya, the seiyuu for Mobile Suit Gundam's protagonist and Char's rival, Amuro Ray. He also takes a more serious demeanor in contrast to the more lively Furuya. It has been a pleasure to see Ikeda and his voice acting as Char / Full Frontal on the stage, and his final message sounds like an interesting teaser. We shall see if his words are indeed true in the future!
