Anime Central is happy to announce that Takahiko Abiru will appear at the 2023 convention. We are very honored to announce the return of VINLAND SAGA Season 2 creative team. In 2020 Anime Central had the privilege to invite the VINLAND SAGA team, but was canceled due to the unforeseen global pandemic. This time the ACEN staff had worked very hard to bring the team back again so they can fulfill the 2020 promise to the ACEN fans.
