The mobile app for this year's New York Comic Con is listing that manga creator and character designer Masakazu Katsura (Zetman, I''s, Video Girl Ai) will attend the convention. Katsura will speak at a Tiger & Bunny panel and he will also attend Viz Media's Shonen Jump Alpha panel.
Katsura designed the characters for the Tiger & Bunny television anime series and also drew a one-shot manga for the series. His Zetman dark hero manga received a television anime adaptation earlier this year. A number of his other manga, including DNA², I''s, and Video Girl Ai have also received anime adaptations. Viz Media released I''s and Video Girl Ai in North America.
Tiger & Bunny producer Kazuhiko Tamura will also attend the convention after also attending last year.
New York Comic Con will be held at the Javits Convention Center from October 11-14. The convention will also host actress/singer Yuu Asakawa, Blogger/TV host Danny Choo, Crypton Future Media, artist Yoshitaka Amano, and manga creator Moyoco Anno.
Update: Sunrise notified ANN that Tiger & Bunny producer Kazuhiko Tamura will speak at the panel instead of fellow producer Masayuki Ozaki.
