(Mostly) On-topic Anime Expo News ...
Why should you care?
Because he was the chief director of Super Dimension Fortress Macross, which as you know is the anime that was adapted into the first generation of ROBOTECH. He was, by all accounts, the head creative individual in the production of that program -- certainly its production was a synthesis of ideas from all involved, especially current Macross caretaker Shoji Kawamori and famed character designer-turned-manga artist Haruhiko Mikimoto, but Ishiguro was very much a driving force behind the program.
So that's pretty cool.
Also appearing, according to the same press release, is former Malice Mizer frontman Mana, who my sister is dressed as here.
Why should you care about that?
No reason. Just thought that was kinda funny.
