Anime Expo 2016 is only a few short days away and Viz Media announced its plans for the convention. They include special guest appearances and autographs, panels, giveaways and a few exclusive items and pre-street items that will be available at the convention.

On Saturday, July 2nd, Viz will be holding two autograph sessions with the team behind One-Punch Man (starting at 10AM) and Blue Exorcist creator, Kazue Kato (starting at 3PM) who will be signing a shikishi. This is also Kazue Kato’s first appearance in North America, and Viz will also be holding a WEEKLY SHONEN JUMP Presents Kazue Kato panel from 11:00am – 12:00pm (LP2 / LACC 403AB).

The panel starts at 10:30am – 12:00pm (Main Events/Hall B) and will feature special guests and upcoming announcements. If you manage to get an autograph ticket beforehand at the Anime Expo autograph ticket booth, you can also attend Sailor Moon English voice cast signing at 1:30PM where each attendee will receive a  signed premium cardstock poster featuring beautiful art from Sailor Moon S.
