Comic Con International has announced that Yu-Gi-Oh! creator Kazuki Takahashi will be a guest at this year’s convention. Each special guest usually will have a “Spotlight” panel at the convention, which will run from July 9-12, 2015 at the San Diego Convention Center.
Takahashi’s Yu-Gi-Oh! manga ran in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from 1996 to 2004. The manga launched an international hit franchise that continues to this day with card games, anime, toys, and newer manga series. The latest anime, Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V, premiered in Japan in Spring 2014 and is set to debut internationally this year.
