We are excited to welcome Tsunako, illustrator known for Neptunia character designs, and Mizuno, producer of the Neptunia series, to Anime Expo 2017 for their first overseas convention appearances!

Both Tsunako and Mizuno will be participating in a panel, as well as autograph sessions throughout the weekend (schedule TBA).

About Tsunako

Tsunako is an illustrator at Idea Factory, known for her character designs for series like Neptunia and Date-A-Live (Fujimi Fantasia Bunko). At the age of 10, she decided to become a game graphic designer and at 18 was already working on illustrations and comics! Upon graduating with a design major in 2008 she joined Idea Factory, which she chose as a fan of their Neverland series. In 2016 she released her personal illustration book and in 2017 an illustration book based off the light novel “Date-A-Live”. Visit the Idea Factory International booth 4410 for an autograph!

About Mizuno

Mizuno is well-known as the producer of the Neptunia series. Playing games as a child inspired her to become someone “who can create games,” yet she found herself working in another field after graduating. But she realized she couldn’t give up her dream! She quit everything to move to Tokyo, and attended school for 3D graphic design. Soon after, she joined Idea Factory as a 3D designer, and 10 years later produced the first Hyperdimension Neptunia. She’s gone on to produce every Neptunia game, as well as the Fairy Fencer F series. Visit the Idea Factory International booth 4410 for an autograph!
