VANCOUVER, BC, April 29th, 2014 – The highly prolific Production I.G has partnered with Anime Revolution Events Inc. for AniRevo Event in Vancouver BC (August 22-24 2014) to support the spread of Japanese culture and Anime. Production I.G’s work list includes popular titles such as: ‘Ghost in the Shell’ ARISE, Attack on Titan, and Kuroko’s Basketball etc.
This year marks the 25th anniversary from the year 1989 when Mr. Shirow Masamune started his series of Ghost in the Shell in the Young Magazine Kaizoku-Ban, and to celebrate, a number of related music events and exhibitions have been slated in Japan. To add to this, at AniRevo 2014, one can expect to enjoy the 25th Anniversary Ghost in the Shell special content including exhibits and showings related to Ghost in the Shell ARISE.
The 25th Anniversary of Ghost in the Shell also coincides with the 125th Anniversary of the Consulate General of Japan in Vancouver, so the Consulate General will also be in attendance to help celebrate this momentous event.

I’m also equally honoured to have the Japanese Consulates support for this year’s convention. I can’t wait to share what else we have in store for the fans”.
