Super pleased to announce the addition of Yoshitoshi ABe to our guest lineup for 2014! Mr. ABe was last at Anime Central in 2001. Don't miss him this time around!

Yoshitoshi ABe is a veteran manga artist from Japan, well known as the creator, character designer, and writer of the series Haibane Renmei, and as the original character designer of Serial Experiments Lain and Texhnolyze. Recently, Mr. ABe has lent his creativity to a number of projects, including designing the enchantMOON tablet in Japan. He also illustrated the original novel version of Welcome to the N.H.K. and the novel All You Need is Kill, the basis for the upcoming film Edge of Tomorrow. Mr. ABe also created the manga NieA under 7, and the original character designs for the anime series. His current projects include the manga Ryoshka Ryoshka, currently being published in Japan, and a long, epic novel called Pachel no Daimajo (The Great Witch of Pachel) currently being released at Comic Market. You can follow him on Twitter at @abfly.

Okay, that's it. You've done it. Ken, you've officially gotten the guest that literally cannot be topped in my eyes. The creator of my all time favorite anime. You can never, ever outdo this. It is impossible. I burst into tears of joy when I saw this announcement. Thank you.

Wow. I don't often get excited about guests, as they're not the reason that I attend cons, but I am legitimately hyped for this one.

Has a signing schedule been finalized for your guests? Also, have panel times for the guests been finalized?

We're still scheduling the guest events. The guest list is not yet complete, so we still have quite a bit to do.

Whoa, I'd totally want him to sign one of his artbooks, however there's no room in my suitcase~ I'll try to make all of his panels too!
