Famed Japanese director Shinichiro Watanabe will be in attendance for all three days of this May’s London Comic Con. Involved in a range of events during the 24th-26th May event, Watanabe will be promoting both Anime Limited’s HD release of Cowboy Bebop and MVM’s release of his latest work Kids On The Slope.
Attendees who bring proof of pre-order purchase for Cowboy Bebop HD from either HMV or Amazon will be eligible to receive an exclusive A4 print to be signed by Watanabe. A limited number of these prints will be available so interested attendees are advised to arrive early.
Also at the event, Manga Entertainment UK will be exclusively selling the Highschool Of The Dead OVA ‘Drifters Of The Dead’. The OVA will be included in a rerelease of the full series due in May but in response to demand from fans who own the previous release the OVA disc will be available as a seperate limited edition at the event. This release will be DVD only with Japanese with English subtitles as the sole audio track. An exact price will be announced closer to the event.
