News for Tomo-Dachi 2007:
Tomo-Dachi to bring Mike McFarland to the UK
February 7th 2007. Londonderry, Northern Ireland. Following the success of 2006's Tomo-Dachi event and the announcement of Tomo-Dachi 2007, Ireland's premier anime convention opens the New Year with special announcements and the opening of pre-registrations for the convention!
Guest of Honour:
2006 saw Tiffany Grant and Matt Greenfield's first ever visit to the United Kingdom and in 2007 Too-Dachi is offering another first. We are excited to announce ADR director, scriptwriter and voice actor Mike McFarland as our guest of honour for Tomo-Dachi 2007.
Mike has worked as ADR director on series' including FullMetal Alchemist, Trinity Blood and DragonBall for FUNimation Entertainment, as well as lending his voice to characters in DragonBall Z (Master Roshi), Fruits Basket (Ritsu Sohma), FullMetal Alchemist (Jean Havoc) and countless others. Mike also worked in a fairly unique role as the Music Director on BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad.
Change of dates:
Circumstances outside our control mean that the convention has had to be rescheduled from the original dates. Tomo-Dachi 2007 will now be taking place on Friday 24th through to Sunday 26th of August 2007, at the University of Ulster's Magee Campus in Londonderry.

About Tomo-Dachi and DAMA:
DAMA was founded in 2004 to bring anime and Manga to the North-West of Northern Ireland, but has managed to appeal much further in its three-year lifespan. 2005 marked the first Tomo-Dachi convention, which surpassed all expectations for both the staff and attendees. TD06 was the largest anime event in Ireland's history, with three days of events and guests from the US and UK in attendance. TD07 promises to be even bigger.

Tomo-Dachi is run by the Non-Profit Trust 'Wakaratai', dedicated to expanding understanding of Asian culture in Northern Ireland.
