The Anime Central convention revealed on Sunday that X Japan leader Yoshiki is attending this year as a guest. The announcement is not clear about whether he will perform as a musical guest or be there for other reasons, though it does mention that he will be showing a “special video for his fans” at his scheduled panel.
At last year’s New York Anime Festival/New York Comic Con, Yoshiki and American comic creator Stan Lee revealed that they are collaborating on a “music superhero comic book” based on Yoshiki. Based on Anime Central’s announcement, it appears that Yoshiki’s planned video is related to the comic book project.
Anime Central is being held in Rosemont, Illinois, on May 20-22.
