Toshiyuki Nagano Added to Guest List of Otakon 2015
As an animation producer, Nagano has worked on several popular titles since he began working for AIC in 2003. Some of his recent works include Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar and Wandering Son. In 2013, he established the animation production company TROYCA which produced the innovative mecha series, Aldnoah.Zero. Nagano currently serves as the company’s president and representative director.
Aldnoah.Zero takes place 15 years after a hypergate to Mars collapsed on the moon’s surface, a catastrophe now known as the Heavens’ Fall. The war between the citizens of Earth and the Vers Empire of Mars is now at a ceasefire. While the two planets continue to disagree on who is the rightful heir to the ALDNOAH, an ancient Martian technology discovered not long after the celestial hypergate, Princess Asseylum Vers Allusia descends upon earth as a Martian ambassador. But, some were not willing to compromise, including Inaho Kaizuka, a Terran high school student, and Slaine Troyard, who swears his allegiance to Vers. The fate of these young people cross as the Terrans and the Martians enter another war, following the assassination of Asseylum.
Otakon 2015 will be held July 24-26 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, MD. Otakon 2015 is celebrating fairy tales, folk stories, myths, and legends.
