Good news for anyone planning to attend Anime Central in Illinois this May. They’ve just announced that Ryukishi07 and other 07th Expansion members will be attending the con as guests.
This will be the first time that Ryukishi07 has appeared at a US convention. He’s visited France for Epitanime in 2012, where he was well received. We already know that Ryukishi loves his fans outside Japan. He even wrote a letter to the fan translators for Umineko, and made an homage to them in the game itself.
Since it might be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, I’m planning on going myself. Fun times ahead…stay tuned for a thorough write-up!
