Ushicon to Host Aria Director Junichi Sato in Texas
posted on by Egan Loo
The organizers of Ushicon announced this week that they will host prolific veteran director Junichi Sato at the February 3-5 convention in Austin, Texas. It will be his first anime convention appearance in the United States.
Sato established himself in the anime industry with work on such magical girl anime as the early seasons of Sailor Moon, Magic User's Club, Ojamajo Doremi, Pretear, and Princess Tutu. He then co-created Aria, Umi Monogatari ~Anata ga Ite Kureta Koto~, and Tamayura — three titles that became known as "healing anime" for his style of storytelling.
