Katsuyuki Konishi, the man behind the voice for Kamina from Gurren Lagann, is set to make an appearance at Anime Expo this year. Through the work of Aniplex USA, he's sent along a video message for his fans to check out before he makes his way here, which you can see below. You can check it out directly on the Aniplex YouTube channel as well here.
Konishi's press conference at AX will be on Sunday, July 4th, 2:30-3:30pm, though the time is subject to change right up until the day of the convention since schedules do change. Aniplex will have a booth (#301) in Dealer's Room as well.
