With MCM Scotland Comic Con taking place this weekend you’ve probably been wondering who the Anime Guest of Honour will be? Well we’re delighted to confirm Takashi Okazaki will be coming to Glasgow.
Character designer Takashi Okazaki, creator of the iconic franchise Afro Samurai and character designer on anime including Mamoru Hosoda’s Summer Wars – where he designed King Kazma; the fan favourite fighting rabbit avatar – and Marvel’s X-Men series produced by the world famous Madhouse studio, is coming to MCM Scotland Comic Con in Glasgow this weekend.
Mr Okazaki is also likely to speak about upcoming projects he’s working on including the Autumn anime series Vanishing Line, which is the next chapter in the Garo franchise, during his panel on Saturday that will look over his career to date.
In addition to this panel you will have the chance to meet the man himself when he participates in two free (meaning no additional charge to your price of entry) signing sessions over the weekend.
