I just booked my flights to (and from) Helsinki for Worldcon this year.

I'm taking part in two panels and giving a talk:

Anime and manga for SF/F Fans

Wednesday 18:00 - 19:30, 207 (Messukeskus)

What does anime and manga offer for fans of science fiction and fantasy? What are the definitive works everyone should be familiar with and what are the personal favourites of our panelists?

Isekai -- Japan invades Fantasy Land

Friday 15:00 - 16:00, Rauhanasema (Messukeskus)

Japan's publishing industry is churning out lots of parallel-universe (isekai) SF stories as light novels, manga and even anime to popular acclaim. Japanese people find themselves in a world of dragons and magic and cat-girls by different means and deal with it in particularly Japanese ways. Hot springs are usually involved.

Western adaptations of Japanese fiction

Saturday 15:00 - 16:00, 203a (Messukeskus)

Western media is adapting Japanese fiction all the time. Ghost in the Shell -movie, All you need is kill -manga translated into the Edge of Tomorrow -movie or Netflix's upcoming Death Note movie. Why is this done and what is being lost/gained in the process?

Bao Shu, Anna Wu, Kyoko Ogushi, Nojay, Kat Takenaka (M)
