I met Vic Mignogna at Anime Matsuri at what had to be a very stressful point in his life. He didn't let that show, however, and treated his fans like every single person mattered. He spent around 5 minutes or more with almost everyone, was high energy throughout, and he encouraged people to be kind and love one another. His panels were amazing as well - I ended up recording those and Vic gave us access to showcase this as intimately as possible. That meant close angles. Being around. And it never once bothered him. In fact, he wishes me a Happy Fathers Day at the panel when he didn't have to, and I appreciate it. I recorded the entire event - each day - and the droves of people this man inspired, and it was an amazing experience. Seeing people come together because of their love for something and being rewarded for it.
Until a few months ago I had no clue who you were. A friend of mine started talking about you and I was confused, I ended up looking you up and learned that despite me watching shows that you are in (FMAL, RWBY) I'd never noticed how much of an amazing person you are. Your words on God are so sweet and beautiful and provide hope for me. I regret not knowing who you are before, I already feel changed just from watching you speak about God and it makes watching you voice some of my favorite characters all the more special. Please, keep preaching the words of God and providing quality voice acting to the industry. God bless.
Typically, I'm not a fan of well known people as I work under the assumption that notoriety makes people arrogant. Upon my observations of Vic Mignogna over the last several months and meeting him in person, however, he has earned my respect as someone worthy of admiration. Vic is a brutally honest and hard worker. I can tell he gives his all to nearly everything he does. He is quick witted, sings very well, and is a great entertainer in general. He is an excellent actor and voice actor. But more importantly to me, he's an excellent human being. Nobody is perfect, Vic included. But he knows it and celebrates his fans rather than himself. He was kind and courteous to me and everyone I saw him interact with at Anime Matsuri, and I'd love to go see him again. God bless you Vic, and you all as well. All the best, BPM
I never thought I would be able to meet Vic in person. I would watch panels on YouTube and wish to be there. When I found out I was going to Matsuri, I was excited, nervous, confused, but overall happy I went to work on an art piece for him ASAP, as a thank you for everything he has done for me and his fans. When days got rough I continued drawing, looking forward to the day I would him my thank you I would watch his live-streams on UnLocked and would think to myself, “I can’t believe he’s still going on strong. Still smiling and not giving up. I want to be as strong as him one day” Seeing him interacting with his fans, laughing and singing was an adventure in itself, my excitement for Matsuri growing by the day When the 15th of June came, in line for his signing with my now dear friends, he walked up to the line asking how everyone was doing. He walked towards me, put his hand on my shoulder, and told me that he liked my Fullmetal Alchemist jacket. All I could say was thank you, excitement and anxiety boiling in my stomach. As time went by, still star struck from earlier, my anxiety was growing as the line moved closer to the tables. When it was my turn, everything around me paused. It was just me, him and the table. I introduced myself and when I told him I was from his live-streams he lit up like a star. “I can’t believe he remembered me” I thought I proceeded to give him my art, explaining it was my thank you gift to him, and the first thing he said was “Sweetheart, that must’ve taken you a long time”. My heart exploded with joy. I didn’t think he would enjoy it, so when I saw his reaction, I felt like I accomplished the biggest goal in my life This picture, posing with Vic himself, is one of the greatest moments in my life. I asked him if he could do this pose with me and he agreed. What people say about his hugs are true: they are the best. Thank you Vic for making Matsuri the best weekend of my life. This is something I will NEVER forget.
I just wanted to say I've caught up on RWBY! I didn't realize how much I loved your take on Qrow. I'm going to miss you as an amazing Uncle Qrow! Even if it's not through RWBY anymore, I can't wait to see more of what you do! And for the new Qrow voice actor, I wish him the best of luck, because he's got some big shoes to fill!
In my mind, I keep a very short list of individuals whom I admire. These individuals shine light into the world with their words and actions; they are humble, considerate, inspiring, and genuine. Vic is on this list. His panels are always a treasure, with an assortment of "real talk," relating to and encouraging fans, and sharing his fun personality. He dedicates himself, heart and soul, to his fans - and it absolutely shows at every appearance he makes. Vic is a gentleman and a true joy to encounter at conventions. I appreciate that he speaks his mind with confidence and grace. Additionally, being part of the Risembool Rangers has acquainted me with many kind and generous individuals. I am deeply grateful for the friendships that have been created and the time we have enjoyed together. My wish is that we (including Vic) meet again in the near future and that Vic and the Rangers continue to be a positive light in the world. Peace and love to you all!
I recently got a chance to meet Vic in person at his Savannah Mega Comic Con appearance. Honestly, I expected him to be nice of course but even then he by far exceeded my expectations. He was such a pleasure to talk to for the few minutes I did and I can sincerely say I couldn't be happier. Thank you for the chance to meet you!
When it comes to words to describe this man, I don't think I can. This was my first time meeting him and although alot of it went by in a flash what I do remember was he was never short of kindness. When it was my turn he wasn't trying to rush it and even complemented my cosplay of Tamaki. I will admit I was shaking inside when I first met him because he inadvertently ended up saving my life through Ed and it was a big moment for me to meet him, but on Sunday it wasn't as bad and it was just like talking to a friend. In my opinion he is probably the sweetest person I have ever met and hope to see him again someday. The friendships I've made with the Rangers whom I had only known from online interactions will last a lifetime and I also hope to see many of you again someday.
The fact you keep to christian values and be kind no matter what is pretty inspirational. Just wanted to say I hope you keep on doing what you love and hope to see you at a con or hear more voice acting from you. Warm Regards, a fan
