VIZ Media has announced its plans for Otakon 2017 – one of the East Coast’s most renowned anime conventions – which runs from August 11-13.
The company will host the VIZ Media panel on Friday, August 11th – with announcements, looks at new titles, and prizes. The Sailor Moon panel, on Saturday, August 12th, will provide updates on the iconic series and feature special guests – and the English voice cast will host an autograph session later that afternoon.
VIZ will also have special merchandise available – like copies of the Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Season 1 Limited Edition Blu-ray set with a special JOJO’S print bandana as a gift with purchase.
Otakon 2017 takes place August 11– 13 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
VIZ Media added four titles to its roster of quality manga series at San Diego Comic-Con 2017: supernatural series Black Torch, paranormal adventure Demon Slayer: Kimetso No Yaiba, romantic comedy Kaguya-Sama: Love is War and post-alien invasion series Dead Dead Demons Dededede Destruction.
VIZ has obtained both print and digital North america rights for the first three titles and print rights for the last.
Dead Dead Demons Dededede Destruction Vol. 1 will be released in spring 2018.
While the BBC was making history by naming the first female Doctor, the current showrunner was heading a trip to San Diego Comic-Con 2017 – where he presented the first teaser for the 2017 Doctor Who Christmas Special, Twice Upon a Time.
The teaser reunites the Doctor with Bill Potts and features a unique event with the first and twelfth Doctors teaming up.
Doctor Who: Twice Upon a Time will premiere on December 25th, of course.
Warner Bros. Television brought a very dark Gotham sizzle reel to Sn Diego for Comic-Con 2017 – just over four of its almost six-minutes run through some of the many key moments of Season Three.
It’s the last minute-and-a-half where we get to see some spectacular teases for Season Four: Bruce in action; Selina in action; the unveiling of the frosty centerpiece at Penguin’s Iceberg Lounge; a glimpse of someone/something like a rabid Joker and the first appearance of a certain Crane alias.
Gotham returns on Thursday, September 28th (FOX, 8/7C).
The SDCC 2017 trailer for season four of The Flash – narrated by Iris West (Candace Patton) who is trying to be strong for Barry – finds Cisco trying to bring the Flash back from the Speed Force to deal with a super samurai with a sword that easily handles Kid Flash.
