AOD is working hard behind-the-scenes to bring you an amazing list of talented actors, creators, and visionaries who each contribute to the world of animation and video games in their own unique way. Stay tuned for the next few weeks as we start to announce AOD's 2016 lineup!
Walking Dead, League of Legends, The Wolf Among Us
Voice actor and Bay Area native Adam Harrington is a veteran of the industry with over 15 years of voiceover experience. Adam has brought a huge variety of video game characters to life in games such as The Walking Dead, Tales from the Borderlands, and League of Legends. However, he is best known for his BAFTA-nominated role as the main character Bigby Wolf in The Wolf Among Us by Telltale Games.
Many Anime and Video Games
Lotus Juice is a Japanese rapper. A rising force in the Japanese music industry, “LJ”, as he is also known, has released two full albums “Only a Test” and “Carpe Diem”, and is working on a third. He has collaborated with composers like Taku Iwasaki and Shoji Meguro, and artists like Vlidge and Shihoko Hirata. To gaming fans, LJ is most well known as the rapper from the popular video game Persona 3, performing the battle themes “Mass Destruction”, “Wiping All Out” and “Burn My Dread – last battle-“ for all releases of the game (original, FES, and PSP versions) among others. He also has written lyrics for the opening theme “unbreakable tie” from Persona 2 Innocent Sin PSP, and performed two original songs for the most recent entry in the Dead or Alive franchise, DOA 5.
Not limiting himself to video game music, LJ has also branched out into writing and performing songs for anime such as Soul Eater, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, Katanagatari, and Black Butler. He also wrote the lyrics for and performed a handful of songs, including both opening themes (“Sky’s the Limit”, “Key Plus Words”) as well as the first ending theme (“Beauty of Destiny”) for Persona 4 the Animation, the adaptation of the mega-hit video game.
LJ hopes that AOD is ready, because he’s about to bring some mass destruction!
