Mushi-Pro secretary @ Anime Punch!

The Anime Punch! convention, happening this weekend in Columbus, Ohio has just made this announcement about a very special guest!

COLUMBUS, OH - April 7, 2009

Haruko Nogawa worked for over a decade as a personal secretary to the legendary Osamu Tezuka, the man granted the title of "God of Manga". This weekend at Anime Punch, an anime convention in Columbus, Ohio, she will be sharing her experiences as part of the Tezuka panel hosted by staff of the convention. Although she is unfamiliar with American fandom, and has never been to a convention before, she is excited to talk about her time with Tezuka at Mushi Productions. She will be providing both professional and personal insight to a man who practically founded anime and many of the traditions we still see today. For most American fans this will be a once in a lifetime experience.
Wow, some lucky convention-goers are going to get a chance to meet Osamu Tezuka's secretary. This is a rare chance to get a first hand account of the most important man in the anime and manga history. I hope someone attending can report back about this panel.
