Guest Announcement: Wolfie B. Bad

The Guests Team is pleased to announce that Wolfie B. Bad will be returning as a Guest of Honor for AnimeIowa 2019!

Wolfie was born into the post-apocalyptic world of 2175. The planet had been decimated by the Sub vs Dub Wars, a war that began with an internet flame war over the proper way to watch anime. While racing go carts with an Italian Plumber and his strange dragon-like frenemy, Wolfie had to swerve to miss hitting a strangely dressed girl scout yelling something about righting wrongs, and triumphing over evil, saying that meant Wolfie. Luckily he had recently acquired a Keyblade and was able to fight the pigtailed girl and her friends to a standstill. Before the final battle could commence, a large robot landed. It appeared to be the combination of five Wolfie’s, even though the paladin pilots said they were lions, but Wolfie knew better. The leader of the Paladins said that they were there to send Wolfie back in time to stop the Sub vs Dub Wars and save the Earth, but they over shot the mark and he landed in 2011. Wolfie felt that he needed to find a way to get back to the future, but got bored, so he joined the entertainment industry instead.
