ADK Emotions Inc. (head office: Minato Ward, Tokyo; Representative Director: Takahiro Noda; “ADK EM” below) will participate in a panel at the 2019 Anime Expo, the largest anime event in America. It will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center from Thursday July 4 to Sunday, July 7, 2018.
The panel will be ADK EM’s first appearance at the Anime Expo. ADK EM will set up a Twitter account and an English website for audiences outside Japan as the company launches a serious push to share information among users in Japan and beyond.
At the panel, ADK EM will also introduce BEM, a new anime to mark 50 years since the broadcast of “Humanoid Monster Bem（1968）”. The anime will begin airing in America the same month as the Anime Expo. We will welcome illustrator Range Murata, who was in charge of original drawings for BEM characters, as a guest. He will perform some live drawing and ADK EM will also screen a movie providing a behind-the-scenes look at BEM’s production.
