Shigeto Koyama & Hiromi Wakabayashi are Guests of Honor for Anime Expo 2018
Anime Expo will welcome Studio TRIGGER’s Shigeto Koyama and Hiromi Wakabayashi as Guests of Honor for this year’s Anime Expo 2018. Animator and character designer, Masaru Sakamoto, and animation producer, Masato Takeuchi, will also join Koyama and Wakabayashi for a Question and Answer session during the SSSS.Gridman premiere event.
“Gridman the Hyper Agent” was a Japanese TV series that aired from 1993. Despite computers in regular households were not common at that time, this series took in elements of the internet and computer viruses and gained popularity through its futuristic appeal.
A new anime adaptation “SSSS. Gridman” will air in Autumn 2018! The animation will be handled by Studio TRIGGER and directed by Akira Amemiya, who presented the “Gridman the Hyper Agent boys invent great hero” at the Japan Animator Expo in 2015.
The future of the “Gridman” world will become reality in 2018, and revived in the animation world.
This special event is scheduled for Friday, July 6 from 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM in the LA Convention Center’s Hall B. Sakamoto, Koyama, and Wakabayashi will also do autograph signings throughout the weekend.
