Viz brings manga artist to July 4-7 event for 1st overseas convention panel/signings

Viz Media announced on Tuesday that it will bring manga creator Bisco Hatori to this year's Anime Expo as a guest. The event will mark Hatori's first overseas appearance at a panel and signings.

Hakusensha published two volumes of Hatori's Millennium Snow manga in 2001 and 2002. Hatori then resumed the series in 2012 and ended it in December 2013. Viz Media published the first two volumes in North America in 2007, and then it published the final two volumes in 2014. Viz Media also published Hatori's Ouran High School Host Club manga, which inspired a 2006 television anime. Viz Media also publishes Hatori's Behind the Scenes!! (Urakata!!) manga, which ended last June.

This year's Anime Expo will take place from July 4 to July 7 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The event will also hold an audition for an English-speaking role in one episode of the upcoming Shikizakura television anime, and it will host actor Ryō Kitamura.
