Anime Central Announces Helen McCarthy as Guest

Anime Central has announced that Helen McCarthy will be a guest at at this year’s event.

McCarthy has been researching and writing about Japanese popular culture since 1981. After a decade hearing that there was “no interest in that sort of thing” she founded a magazine, Anime UK, to disprove the claim. Her first book was published just over a year later, and she’s been writing about anime, manga and Japan ever since. These include a biography of Osamu Tezuka, two drawing manuals, and co-authorship of The Anime Encyclopedia.

Anime Central will be taking place at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare and Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois from May 17-19, 2019.
