The guest announcements continue to roll out for Anime NYC, and the latest will especially be of interest to anyone looking forward to the TRIGUN STAMPEDE anime. Anime NYC announced that Studio Orange will be in attendance, as represented by Chief Producer Waki Kiyotaka and Producer Yoshihiro Watanabe.
Waki Kiyotaka will take part in the TRIGUN STAMPEDE Special Panel on Friday, November 18, and will host signings both Friday and Saturday.
Waki Kiyotaka is Chief Producer at Orange and is currently lead producing TRIGUN STAMPEDE. In 2007, Waki joined the animation studio Madhouse. After working with producer Yuichiro Saito at Madhouse, he joined Mamoru Hosoda’s Studio Chizu in 2011 as one of its founding members. At Studio Chizu, Waki was involved with projects such as Wolf Children (2012) and The Boy and The Beast (2015). In 2016, Waki joined the animation studio Orange and worked on Land of the Lustrous (2017) as Producer and since then as Chief Producer he produced BEASTARS (2019) and Godzilla Singular Point (2020). Waki is producing the upcoming TRIGUN STAMPEDE (2023) for Orange.
The same goes for Yoshihiro Watanabe, who will take part in the panel and be available for signings on Friday and Saturday.
Watanabe is a Producer at animation studio Orange Ltd. and is currently working on TRIGUN STAMPEDE and BEASTARS as Business Producer and creatively producing unannounced projects at Orange. Watanabe grew up in America but after college, for some weird fate, began working for studio Madhouse. After leaving Madhouse, Watanabe became a freelance producer and coordinator and worked closely with studio P.A.WORKS. He produced works such as Eccentric Family 2 and the League of Legends Commercial – New Journey.
