Hawaii's Kawaii Kon to Host Appleseed's Shinji Aramaki

posted on by Egan Loo

Kawaii Kon will host Appleseed film director Shinji Aramaki at Honolulu's Hawaii Convention Center during the April 10-12 event. Aramaki also directed Madox-01 and the Appleseed: Ex Machina film sequel based on Masamune Shirow's manga. He co-created the original story of Megazone 23 and contributed to the designs in Genesis Climber Mospeada, Bubblegum Crisis, Gasaraki, the 2003 Astro Boy series, s-CRY-ed, Witch Hunter Robin, Wolf's Rain, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Naruto the Movie: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow. In his early years, he contributed to the designs of Takara's Microchange toys (later exported under Hasbro's Transformers line as Soundwave, the Mini-Cassettes, Reflector, and Perceptor) and Kenner's MASK line.

Most recently, he is directing and designing a new television anime series called Viper's Creed which premiered just this past January. Like several of his works, Viper's Creed includes transforming robotic motorcycles and a futuristic paramilitary setting.
