    ★OTAKON 2017 Guest of Honor

    Actor, and Voice Artist: SHIMBA TSUCHIYA:
    Tsuchiya works as both an actor and a voice artist. He starred his first animated television series in Welcome to the Ballroom playing the role of Tatara Fujita. Other notable works include animated television series Haikyuu!!: Karasuno Koukou VS Shiratorizawa Gakuen Koukou (as Tsutomu Goshiki), The Dragon Dentist (as Toreshi), the play Ehon Gappo Ga Tsuji (as Gunzo Moriyama and Onui), etc.

    Born in 1976, Tetsuya Kinoshita joined Production I.G in 2001. He served as the production manager of the animation part in the film Kill Bill: Volume 1 and the animated television series Otogi Zoshi. Kinoshita subsequently joined Pony Canyon Inc. in 2005, and began his work as a producer in animation films from Shinreigar/ GHOST HOUND. His work Sengoku Basara was made into an animated feature film, becoming one of the most popular animated television series in Japan. His work as producer on MUSASHI: THE DREAM OF THE LAST SAMURAI (2009), the animated feature film created and written by Mamoru Oshii, lead him to serve as a producer in the animated feature film 28 1/2 Mousou no kyojin directed by Oshii.

    The animated television series ATTACK ON TITAN which he worked on as producer was a huge success, with season 2 currently airing in Japan (as of May, 2017). ATTACK ON TITAN has also developed into a two-part live action film. One of his works Yuki Yuna is a Hero became a three-part feature film, with its latest film part 2 currently screening in Japan (as of May, 2017). The sequel of the film is set to air as an animated television series in October. Kinoshita has done numerous works as a producer, such as From the New World, THE ROLLING GIRLS, ETOTAMA, and etc. His latest work Welcome to the Ballroom began airing from July.

    After Takanori Matsuoka joined PONY CANYON INC., he soon joined in the Japanese Anime Production Division, where he worked on many profitable projects of the company such as DEVIL SURVIVER 2 the ANIMATION and ROKKA as a Publicity Producer; and SHOW BY ROCK!, CLEAN FREAK! AOYAMA-KUN, and SANRIO BOYS as a Producer. Having experienced various anime projects in Japan, he is now interested in international co-production with oversea companies.

      I asked Pony Canyon about Netflix licensing (specifically Kuromukuro) and apparently binge releases are just part of Netflix's NA strategy.
      I got the sense that they would like to see weekly releases in NA too, but it's not entirely up to them.
