Tsutomu Kitagawa +others in S.Carolina MARCH 2017

Postby Benjamin Haines » Sun Mar 12, 2017 1:45 am

This almost flew completely under my radar. I'm glad I randomly clicked my old bookmark for this convention from four years back.

http://madmonster.com/events/carolina2017/index.php

The 2017 Mad Monster Party Carolina will take place in Rock Hill, South Carolina at The Hood Center on the weekend of March 24-26, just two weeks from now. Among the many noteworthy guests will be Tsutomu Kitagawa (Godzilla of the Millennium Series, sans GMK), Linda Miller (King Kong Escapes, The Green Slime), and Bin Furuya (the original Ultraman).

The website does not currently have a schedule so it's unclear who among them will be present on which days. When the Mad Monster Party was in Charlotte, North Carolina back in 2013, I only went on that Sunday because that was the only day that Haruo Nakajima was there. He had a Q&A panel back then and there's no indication on the website if any of them will have one this time. I'll definitely try to make it out to see those three if I can. I figured some other fans on here would want to know about this since it's not often that we get events like this in the South.


*****
Edited with the updated guest list. Haruo Nakajima was originally featured on the website this year but he has since been replaced with Tsutomu Kitagawa.

I'm not sure why exactly but Haruo Nakajima has been removed from Mad Monster Party's guest page and replaced with Tsutomu Kitagawa. Linda Miller and Bin Furuya are still listed.

The website also now has a complete schedule of the weekend's events. Kitagawa, Miller, and Furuya will participate in a Toho panel together on Saturday, March 25 at 2:30pm. Additionally, Kitagawa and Furuya will each hold their own back-to-back photo ops with attendees, spaced 15 minutes apart, on Friday at 9:00pm, Saturday at 3:45pm, and Sunday at 2:30pm.
