Great news everyone – this is the first awesome announcement for MCM Glasgow but rest assured we’ve got more to come on that frontier!
Anime director Shingo Natsume is to be a special guest at MCM Scotland Comic Con when the show returns to Glasgow’s SECC this September, event organisers have announced.
Currently directing anarchic sci-fi comedy Space Dandy alongside anime legend Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Kids On The Slope), Natsume will be attending both days of Comic Con, including presenting an onstage panel on the Saturday of the show.
One of anime’s rising stars, Natsume made his directorial debut in 2012 with Original Video Animation Hori-san to Miyamura-kun. Other works he has been involved in include Bokurano, The Tatami Galaxy, Gurren Lagann, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Naruto Shippuden and the feature-length Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star Of Milos.
A multi-media pop culture festival covering movies, games, comics, sci-fi, anime, manga and cosplay, MCM Scotland Comic Con is set to be Scotland’s biggest ever comic con event. Following a highly successful debut in 2013, this year’s show will run over the full weekend.
