Panelist: Maki Terashima
Production I.G opened Sunday with their early morning panel. Vice president Maki Terashima first introduced a special guest—Tatsuo Sato, the director of Bodacious Space Pirates, who answered some questions from the audience, but was not able to talk about future seasons. Afterward, several trailers were shown for current and upcoming properties, ranging from the new animated feature film 009 Re:Cyborg, directed by Kenji Kamiyama, who also directed the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex series, as well as A Letter to Momo, a film directed by Jin-Roh character designer Hiroyuki Okiura, which is licensed for distribution by GKids.
Other trailers shown included works like the second season of Lagrange - The Flower of Rin-ne, as well as Blood-C: The Last Dark and Appleseed XIII, the latter two of which will be distributed by Funimation.
