Tommy Yune to Attend Carl Macek Funeral, Cancels MTAC Appearance

NASHVILLE, TN – Due to the recent passing of American Anime legend Carl Macek, MTAC Odyssey guest Tommy Yune will be unable to attend the event, as the funeral for Mr. Macek will be held the same weekend as MTAC Odyssey.

Mr. Yune has passed his regrets along to the MTAC community, and it has been confirmed that Harmony Gold's Steve Yun will still be attending the convention to meet and greet with fans and to join them in remembering a pioneering figure in the Anime industry. MTAC's entire staff joins with our friends at Harmony Gold in offering our condolences to Mr. Macek's family. We will always be grateful for his contributions to an art we all love.
