Final Fantasy/Vampire Hunter D artist to appear at August 27-29 event

Fan Expo Canada has announced on Thursday that Yoshitaka Amano, the artist famous for his design and illustration work in the Final Fantasy, Vampire Hunter D, and Science Ninja Team Gatchaman franchises, will appear the Fan Expo Canada CNAnime event in Toronto. The convention will run from August 27 to August 29.

Amano has been in the anime industry since he was 15, when he joined the veteran studio Tatsunoko Production. Among his first character design credits at Tatsunoko were Time Bokan, Hutch, the Honeybee, and Shinzō Ningen Casshan. After he became a freelancer, he contributed visual conceptual art to the first of many Final Fantasy games from Square (later Square Enix). He also created Yasai no Yōsei - N.Y. Salad, a television anime about the secret nocturnal life of vegetables in a New York kitchen, and that series inspired a 3D film this spring. He is currently working on his first anime film, Zan, for worldwide release next year.
