Yoshiki to screen WE ARE X and special YOSHIKITTY featurette at Anime Expo

X Japan leader Yoshiki will host a special screening of the documentary film "We Are X" at Anime Expo on July 2

In his first USA public appearance since his surgery last month, Yoshiki will participate in a live Q&A with fans to discuss the award-winning film and the past, present and future of X Japan.

As a special gift to fans, Yoshiki will also present the first-ever public screening of the "We Are X" featurette “The Birth of Yoshikitty," which includes:
  • video interview with Hello Kitty designer Yuko Yamaguchi
  • inside look at the creation and design process explained by Yuko Yamaguchi herself
  • behind-the-scenes with Yoshiki working on the “Hello Kitty Theme Song”
  • Yoshiki speaking about his relationship with the founder of Sanrio
“Yoshikitty” is the first Hello Kitty character to be based on a living person. 

Fans who attend the "We Are X" screening at Anime Expo will be the first to see this in-depth featurette on the big screen with live commentary by Yoshiki himself.

Yoshiki and X Japan have contributed music to several historic anime titles, including X, X – X2 Double X, Buddha: The Great Departure, and Saint Seiya: Legend of Sanctuary. Yoshiki also served as the inspiration for the Blood Red Dragon comic book created by Stan Lee, with creative direction from Todd McFarlane.
