News Cowboy Bebop Director Shinichiro Watanabe Guest at London Expo in May (Updated)
Anime Limited has confirmed that director Shinichiro Watanabe (Macross Plus, Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Kids on the Slope) will be the Guest of Honour at the upcoming May event at London's ExCel Centre. The event will run from May 24 to 26.
According to Anime Limited's web site, Watanabe will "be at the event to promote both the upcoming HD release of Cowboy Bebop as well as his most recent show – Kids on the Slope (Sakamichi no Apollon). Aside from him participating in panels across MCM Expo's weekend, we'll have some exclusive signing sessions on the Anime Limited booth promoting both shows – with Sakimichi no Apollon coming out from our friends at MVM.
"Pre-order (Cowboy Bebop) either at HMV or Amazon before MCM and bring proof of pre-order and while stocks last we'll give you an exclusive A4 Bebop print to get signed. These are extremely limited in volume so come early to avoid disappointment. A preview image will go up online at AlltheAnime.com at the start of May. Pre-orders will open no later than May 1st."
