Kawaii Kon 2006 announces its first Japanese guest

Kawaii Kon 2006 announces it's first japanese guest, manga artist Jin Kobayashi!

After winning the "Best in Show" Award in Shonen Magazine's upstart artists contest, he began his serialization of "School Rumble" in 2002. Since then, he has become one of Japan's most talented young manga artists, with "School Rumble" spawning both a video game, and an anime series set to air its 2nd season in Japan this spring. "School Rumble" is currently being released in the United States through Del Rey Manga.

We are very excited and honored to be hosting Mr. Kobayashi, for his first U.S. appearance ever!
