Joining several other companies in announcing their special guest plans for the upcoming Anime Expo in Los Angeles, MangaGamer have confirmed that two development team members from Japan will be visiting North America for the four day event (July 1st – 4th).
The first guest to be in attendance is Hamashima Shigeo, a concept artist, graphic designer and illustrator. She actively designs characters for all genres, regardless of whether the games target market is male, female, or the general adult gaming market. She was worked on several titles published internationally by MangaGamer, including Eroge! ~Sex and Games Make Sexy Games~, No, Thank You!!, and euphoria.
Joining her will be Sakai Nobukazu, also known as “nbkz”. Having been a member of visual novel studio Minori since founding, he has acted as director for several of its creations, and as a producer for its complete library. His role is that of a Quality Controller (Checker) whom guarantees the quality of each and every one of minori’s products. He also works hard behind the scenes, deeply involved with the initial and final stages of product development. Some of his past works include ef – a fairy tale of the two and eden*.
