The Anime Weekend Atlanta convention announced last week that director Yasuhiro Imagawa (Giant Robo, G Gundam, Shin Mazinger Shōgeki! Z-Hen) and animator Tsuyoshi Nonaka (D.I.C.E, Shin Mazinger Shōgeki! Z-Hen) have cancelled their guest appearances at the September 18-20 event in Georgia. The Japanese musical guests Omodaka and PEELANDER-Z are still scheduled to appear.
Imagawa has directed several unconventional updates of classic Japanese robot stories, such as Giant Robo, G Gundam, and most recently, Shin Mazinger Shōgeki! Z-Hen. He also wrote scripts for Pet Shop of Horrors, Violinist of Hamelin, Berserk, and Hareluya II Boy.
