Announcing Guests for 2013: Shinichi Watanabe (aka Nabeshin) and Yasuhiro Koshi!


Anime Boston is proud to announce two more Japanese Guests that will be joining us for the 2013 convention.

Shinichi Watanabe (aka Nabeshin) is known to anime fans as a larger-than-life, iconic figure with an outrageous sense of humor.

He directed the comedy anime series Excel Saga, Nerima Daikon Brothers, and Puni Puni Poemy, which feature frenetic pacing and appearances by his animated alter ego, a mysterious, recurring character with an afro and distinctive outfit who is tangential to the story.

Yasuhiro Koshi is known as an actor and chief advisor for action movies in Japan and the U.S.

Using his knowledge and experience as a former sergeant in Japan's Ground Self-Defense Force, he provides advice for battle action scenes, military roles, weapon design, and so on.
