Anime Central is Honored to Welcome Helen McCarthy


Anime Central has announced that it will host Author Helen McCarthy at this year's event.

Helen McCarthy has been researching and writing about Japanese popular culture since 1981. After a decade hearing that there was "no interest in that sort of thing" she founded a magazine, Anime UK, to disprove the claim. Her first book was published just over a year later, and she's been writing about anime, manga and Japan ever since. These include a biography of Osamu Tezuka acclaimed in Japan, two drawing manuals, a cross stitch book, and co-authorship of The Anime Encyclopedia.

Anime Central (ACen) is the largest anime, manga and Japanese popular culture convention in Chicago and the Midwest. Anime Central 2019 will take place from May 17-19 at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare and Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.
