Otaku USA Magazine: ''I first interviewed Brad Swaile at Youmacon in 2011, and he told me about playing Light in Death Note and the dedication fans feel in making sure he eats lots of chips. When I met up with him at Anime Central outside of Chicago, he assured me fans are still good at feeding him chips (sometimes they want him to sign them, too), and he also updated me on Black Lagoon and told me a funny story of the dangers of cosplay. (Funny, that is, because it didn’t happen to you.)
Coincidentally, the first con Swaile ever attended was Anime Central, and that was in 2002. This is the first time he’s been back to ACen since then, and he said, “It’s changed a lot. It’s gotten a lot bigger. It’s such an anomaly that conventions, no matter what’s happening in the world — politically, economically — the conventions continue to grow. Fans will continue to support their passions.”''
