LOS ANGELES (January 17, 2011) Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Anime Expo — North America’s largest anime and manga event — will present the highly-anticipated world premiere of “LASTEXILE -Fam, The Silver Wing-.” Anime Expo returns to the Los Angeles Convention Center from July 1 – 4, 2011 with the largest exhibition and program in its history.
“We are beyond thrilled to host the world premiere of a new chapter in the popular “LASTEXILE” series at Anime Expo 2011,” said Marc Perez, Chairman and CEO of the Society for the Promotion of Japanese Animation, the non-profit that produces the event. “GONZO, the production team behind the LASTEXILE saga, has long created amazing works of art and we’re excited to help share them with the world. We are certain that the news of this epic premiere will make our many attendees very, very happy.”
Themed the “Year of the Fan,” Anime Expo 2011 will fully immerse guests into the world of Japanese animation, manga (comic books), music and fashion. Anime Expo is a non-stop marathon of Japanese pop culture that’s been likened to Halloween in July. More information about the premiere will be announced in the coming weeks.
