For five years Anime Matsuri, Houston's anime and Japanese pop-culture convention, has grown bigger and better, bringing fans of anime, gaming and Japanese culture from all around the country to Houston. Convention-goers this year will have a chance to meet Kelly Hu, best known for her roles in The Scorpion King and as Lady Deathstrike in X2. She's also made a name for herself in video-game voice acting, turning in a wonderful performance in Knights of the Old Republic II as Visas Marr, and an unforgettably powerful portrayal of Inspector Jane Teng in last year's crime-drama hit Sleeping Dogs. More video-game voice royalty will be on hand in the form of Erin Fitzgerald, who's been in everything from the recent SkullGirls to Persona 4 to Tekken 6. And yes, there will be plenty of cosplayers on hand for pictures, both professional and amateur.
