Anime Expo, the annual Los Angeles-based anime convention for otaku all over the world, will host acclaimed manga artist and author Go Nagai as a guest of honor at this year's event. Responsible for series like Devilman, Mazinger Z, and Cutie Honey, Nagai will host a special panel for Cutie Honey Universe on Saturday, July 7, at the JW Marriott / Live Programming 2 (Platinum Ballroom) from noon until 1 PM.
The aforementioned show has yet to recieve a release date as of late, though fans will assumedly hear a lot more of its progress in July.
Seeing as how the man was responsible for the original concept of a magical girl transformation and how this year marks his 50th anniversary as a creator of Japanese entertainment, there'll be no shortage of nerds eagerly awaiting his autograph when the convention marks its return next month. Better start waiting on line now!
