About Bisuko Ezaki
Ezaki is a Japanese Illustrator/Manga Writer who created a new genre of Kawaii “Yami-Kawaii,” also known as “Menhera.” One of his representative works, Menhera-chan, is a character whose theme is “mental health” – a topic that is commonly considered taboo in Japan. She transforms into magical girl by wrist cutting and fights with a box cutter knife.
Since Menhera-chan was introduced in 2014, she has developed a huge fan base mainly with high school girls who are into Harajuku culture or Japanese subculture. Menhera-chan has also collaborated with various brands, producing products that have been gaining world-wide recognition. She is now one of the most popular characters in Harajuku!
Anime Expo 2018 will run from July 5 through July 8 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, with Pre-Show Night on July 4, 2018.
