We’re very happy to confirm that Kohei Kawase will be our special guest on Friday 21st October during Scotland Loves Anime in Edinburgh.

Kohei Kawase is a producer from Warner Entertainment in Japan. He was the Executive Producer of the Accel World television series and has also been producer on a number of anime including Shirobako, A Certain Scientific Railgun & A Certain Magical Index and Food Wars!

He also has his own radio talk show in Japan – so we’re making use of his abilities and are delighted to confirm he will be taking part in a Q&A session hosted by Jonathan Clements following the screening of Accel World: Infinite Burst. 

He will talk about Accel World and life producing anime. Ever wondered how anime is made or what goes on? Come and watch Jonathan Clements grill him!
