The Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF) is hosting the first North American guest appearance of manga creator Natsume Ono during the May 7-8 weekend. Since she made her debut in 2003 with La Quinta Camera ~5 Banme no Heya~, Ono's works have included House of Five Leaves, Ristorante Paradiso, Gente ~Ristorante no Hitobito~, and Not Simple. Viz Media is publishing all of these titles in North America. Both Ristorante Paradiso and House of Five Leaves have been adapted into late-night television anime series in Japan.
Ono will appear at panels and book signings on both days of the May 7-8 weekend at the Toronto Reference Library. The event is free, but attendees must pre-register for Ono's panel and signings.
