It’s a rough time to be associated with the State of Georgia right now. It’s been a week since the supposed “Heartbeat Bill” has been passed and it has the state divided and critics not living in and around commenting on whether or not any TV or film production should be done of any kind unless the bill is overturned.

In the meantime, MomoCon is coming and  Toonami founders Jason DeMarco and Gill Austin, the voice of TOM Steve Blum, and the voice of SARA Dana Swanson will all be in attendance Friday, May 24th at 7pm where everyone involved will be featured as part of a panel and Q&A to talk all things Toonami. The panel takes place the night before Attack on Titan returns with new episodes so I’m sure there will be plenty to talk about.
