Anime NYC Event to Host Science SARU's Eunyoung Choi, World Premiere of Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! Anime
posted on by Alex Mateo
The staff of the Anime NYC convention announced on Friday that the event will host Science SARU producer Eunyoung Choi. The event will also host the world premiere of Science SARU's television anime adaptation of Sumito Ōwara's Eizōken ni wa Te o Dasu na! (Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!) manga. Choi will present the anime's premiere at the event.
Eunyoung Choi co-founded the Science SARU animation studio with Masaaki Yuasa. Choi collaborated with Yuasa as producer on DEVILMAN crybaby, Night is Short, Walk On Girl, and Ride Your Wave. Choi also worked as an animator and episode director on Kick-Heart, Space Dandy, The Tatami Galaxy, Kaiba, and Casshern Sins.
Yuasa (DEVILMAN crybaby, The Tatami Galaxy, Night is Short, Walk On Girl) is directing the anime at his Science SARU studio. Yuasa is also supervising the series scripts. Naoyuki Asano (Saint Young Men, Mr. Osomatsu) is designing the characters, and Oorutaichi (Kick-Heart, Lu over the wall) is composing the music.
The manga follows Midori, Tsubame, and Sayaka, an energetic trio of first-year high school girls who come together in the Eizouken (Video Research Club) to turn their anime dreams into a reality. Midori is nervous to create an anime alone. She meets Tsubame who appears to be a well-to-do girl but she really has artistic dreams of being an animator. Midori's best friend Sayaka has the financial sense to bring the project to fruition and joins the pair on their quest.
This year's Anime NYC will be held at the Javits Center in Midtown Manhattan from November 15 to 17. Last year's event had 36,000 attendees from all 50 states and more than 15 countries.
This year's event will also host Gundam creator Yoshiyuki Tomino, Dr. Stone manga creators Riichirou Inagaki and Boichi, Monogatari series illustrator VOFAN, voice actress Rie Kugimiya, voice actress and singer Miku Itо̄, Today's Menu for Emiya Family manga creator TAa, and JAM Project, Guilty Kiss, TRUE, and ZAQ as musical performers.
