SUNRISE announces their anime expo panel
One of my favorite companies in Anime is SUNRISE. It just wouldn’t be an Anime Expo with out the creators of Code Geass, Gundam Wing, the kings of mecha, the Regent of Robots, SUNRISE. They will bring all of their awesome Mecha action to the LosAngles Convetion Center, July 5th from 1:00pm – 2:00pm in LP 2. Thats over in the JW Marriot so if your planning to attend make sure you leave with enough time to walk over!
The panel will have some sunrise favorites, and the inclusion of Bandai/Namco personel makes me hopeful that we will be seeing a mecha game or two at the panel as well! And maybe, I hope a little preview of the newest season of one of my all time favorite shows Code Geass!
here is the full list of panelists:
Mitsuaki Taguchi : President & Representative Director of BANDAINAMCO Holdings Inc.
Yasuo Miyakawa: President and CEO of SUNRISE Inc.
Naohiro Ogata Producer of “Mobile Suit Gundam UC” and “Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt”
Osamu Taniguchi: Producer of “Gundam the Origin”
And more Special Guests.
According to Sunrise the panel will not just introduce their current shows, but will also be showing a brand new property, which I’m going to guess is probably a new Gundam OVA since the people from Unicorn are there, as well as the producers fo Thunderbolt and Origin. There will also be a big announcement and of course a raffle for awesome stuff!
Also of note is recent business decision by Bandai/Namco to name Sunrise as the leader of their IP Creation Unit. Sunrise is now responsible for planning to create various new intellectual properties for Bandai/Namco not only Anime but also presumably video games, and manga as well.
