Aoki debuted as a director in 2004, and has since directed anime such as Fate/Zero, Girls Bravo, and Wandering Son. In 2013, he co-founded the anime production studio called TROYCA, where he directed Aldnoah.Zero.
Kurosaki's production credits, in addition to Aldnoah.Zero, include The Garden of Sinners, Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works, and Puella Magi Madoka Magica The Movie Part 3: Rebellion.
Otakon will take place at the Baltimore Convention Center from July 24-26. Other guests include Laura Bailey, J. Michael Tatum, and Travis Willingham.
