Otakon announced on Thursday that it will feature an exhibit of original Rurouni Kenshin artwork, curated by creator Nobuhiro Watsuki's wife Kaoru Kurosaki, at its August 9-11 event in Baltimore, Maryland.
Kaoru Kurosaki, a novelist, has occasionally collaborated with her husband on works such as Buso Renkin and Embalming. Kurosaki will also present an insider's perspective on the life of a popular manga artist. Watsuki himself will not be able to attend the event. The exhibit will be on display in the convention's art hall throughout the weekend.
Kurosaki joins the following previously-announced guests: Japanese cultural writer Takamasa Sakurai, Sword Art Online designers Tetsuya Kawakami and Shingo Adachi, composer Yoko Kanno, hip-hop group Home Made Kazoku, singer T.M. Revolution, and MADHOUSE anime studio founder Masao Maruyama. The convention is also hosting voice actress Maile Flanagan and voice actor Vic Mignogna. Otakon is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
