MCM Expo have some exciting news for anime fans - acclaimed director Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Kids On The Slope) has been confirmed as the Anime Guest of Honour at London Comic Con in May.

From the Press Release:

"Attending all three days of the show, Shinichiro Watanabe will be taking part in on-stage panels and promoting both Anime Limited's upcoming HD release of Cowboy Bebop and the UK debut of his latest series, Kids On The Slope, released by MVM Entertainment.

 Watanabe will also be holding exclusive signing sessions at the Anime Limited booth. MCM London Comic Con visitors who pre-order Anime Limited's Cowboy Bebop either at HMV or Amazon and bring proof of pre-order to the show will receive an exclusive A4 Bebop print to get signed (while stocks last). These prints are extremely limited in volume, however, so go along to the stand early to avoid disappointment!"
