Post by Faceman » Mon Jan 22, 2018 11:56 am

Formerly involved with the production desk at Studio Ghibli, Hirokatsu Kihara worked closely with director Hayao Miyazaki on such hit titles as Laputa: Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, and Kiki's Delivery Service. He has also done some voice acting work, most notably as the role of Minister of Defense in DC Super Heroes vs. Eagle Talon.

Hirokatsu Kihara is probably best known for his work in the Horror genre. There, he has been a crucial contributor working on such titles as: Tales of Terror: Haunted Apartment and Tales of Terror from Tokyo and All Over Japan which are known in Japan as Shin Mimibukuro. In addition, he has written the books: Tsukumo Kwaidan, Utsushiyo-kaidan, and Kinkiro. Nowadays, he continues to write ghost stories, emcees at monster conventions, and shares his knowledge and experiences at events worldwide.

It's really wonderful to see he'll be returning to AB this year. I would love to check out the stuff he's written in the horror genre. :) :)

I don't like horror so I'll probably just bring some Studio Ghibli titles for him to sign :)
