Crunchyroll has announced that it will host manga creator Kore Yamazaki at this year’s Crunchyroll Expo event. Yamazaki will participate in a discussion about her The Ancient Magus’ Bride manga, and will have an autograph session.
Yamazaki made her debut with her Futari no Renai Shoka (Our Romantic Bookshelf) manga in Hobunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Forward magazine in 2012. She ended the series in 2013. Her next series is The Ancient Magus’ Bride (Mahō Tsukai no Yome), which launched in Mag Garden’s Monthly Comic Blade magazine in November 2013, and later migrated to the publisher’s new Comic Garden magazine in September 2014. Seven Seas Entertainment’s North American releases of the manga volumes have ranked several times on The New York Times newspaper’s manga best seller list.
Yamazaki launched another series titled Frau Faust in Kodansha’s Itan magazine in 2014. Kodansha Comics licensed the title for North America.
Crunchyroll Expo will be taking place August 25-27, 2017 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California.
