SPEAKERPODCAST EP.136 – Tomonori Kogawa @ Anime Los Angeles

We’re joined by special guests Tom Bateman, Leonardo Flores and, later on, Tim Eldred as Adrian recounts the experience of coordinating the first US convention appearance of legendary character designer/animator/illustrator Tomonori Kogawa at Anime Los Angeles 2020!

But first, there actually IS some Macross news to go over, since it looks as though Walkure is back and won’t give up!

(Thanks to Adrian for the photos from Anime Los Angeles!)

Walkure is back for a new tour – but will it go ahead as scheduled?
