San Diego Comic Con 2018: Sean Schemmel


Honesty is key and here is my shiny one: I’m not a fan of Dragon Ball.

Before the pitchforks and cabbages are thrown my way, let me also add that I have much admiration for the series as I consider it one a legendary anime series. Just like Sailor Moon is well beloved around the world so is Dragon Ball. These massive anime have fans of all walks of life and stages. The love for the series is deeply rooted and strong. So although, I am not a fan of it, I respect the impact that it has had on fans around the world.

It was recently announced that Funimation® Films acquired the theatrical rights to the new Dragon Ball Super movie, entitled “Dragon Ball Super: Broly.  The film will be released in the US in January 2019. Dragon Ball Super: Broly follows the events of  Dragon Ball Super” the first new Dragon Ball story line from original creator Akira Toriyama in more than 18 years.

So it was no wonder that Dragon Ball was splattered everywhere during San Diego Comic Con. From large posters on the Marquis to the never ending parade of Dragon Ball cosplayers.  The love for this series is super-saiyen strong!

It was with great surprise and happiness that Fangirl Nation was able to sit down with  Sean Schemmel. He is one of the voices of Goku, the main character of the series. Despite my lack of knowledge about the series, it was still fascinating to get a chance to meet legendary voice actor. There are many talented and famous voice actors but not many can hold the title of voicing the same character for two decades.

As it turned out, it didn’t really matter that I knew zilch about the series. All Schemmel knew was the trailer since he hasn’t even received the script. So it became a wonderful interview of learning about his love of pizza, mcgriddles, and how easily distracted he is by planes.

So I proudly present my “interview” with Sean Schemmel
