JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Roles
- Mongillo and fellow Stone Ocean cast member Kira Buckland are roommates (as of Stone Ocean's release). Buckland noted that despite living together, the two of them rarely worked on the same projects, so JoJo was particularly fun. Prior to their involvement with Stone Ocean, Mongillo had wanted to voice Narancia Ghirga in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind, but was not invited to audition.
- As of 2020, Mongillo's favorite anime is FLCL. They are also a big fan of series' featured band, The Pillows.
