Comedy anime's director, producer to appear at Illinois convention

The Chicago-area anime convention Anime Central announced on Tuesday that it will host Bob Shirohata (pictured) and Mika Nomura, the director and producer, respectively, of the television anime series Hetalia - Axis Powers. Anime Central will take place from May 20 to 22 in Rosemont, Illinois. The anime adapts Hidekaz Himaruya's manga series of the same name.

Shirohata helmed Diamond Daydreams, Gravitation, and Let's Dance With Papa. Nomura produced the entire When They Cry anime franchise and Umineko no Naku Koro ni, as well as the current television series Steins;Gate.

Anime Central also announced that American voice actress Stephanie Sheh (K-ON!'s Yui, Naruto's Hinata) will return to the convention this year.

Update: Hidekaz Himaruya's spelling corrected. Thanks, lkmjr.
