Case Closed Producer Michihiko Suwa to Attend Anime Boston 2018

Before we begin, can I get some props for this guy’s work on City Hunter? (Seriously, the show doesn’t get enough love!)

Earlier today, Anime Boston announced that producer Michihiko Suwa will attend this year’s convention as a guest. The producer is the sixth Japanese guest confirmed by the convention.

Suwa is a fixture within the anime industry, having worked at Yomiuri TV for more than thirty-five years. He’s served as producer on numerous fan-favorite titles, including Inuyasha, Magic Knight Rayearth, City Hunter, and Case Closed.

Anime Boston con chair Victor Lee commented on Suwa’s reveal, stating:

Producers set the tone and personality of any anime title, and few have a credits list as long as Michihiko Suwa. I can’t wait to hear what it takes to take an anime program from conception to our televisions screens!

Michihiko Suwa will join seven previously confirmed guests:

  • Asaka
  • FLOW
  • Greg Ayres
  • Monica Rial
  • Hideyuki Tomioka
  • Katsuyuki Sumizawa
  • Hirokatsu Kihara

Anime Boston 2018 will be held from March 30 through April 1 at Boston’s Hynes Convention Center.
