It is with great disappointment that Tadao regrettably will be unable to attend Capricon 34 in person as we had hoped. Although Mr. Tomomatsu would love to be with us, he has to make his family a top priority and we cannot agree more.
However, Tadao will be able to attend a panel via Skype and we do look forward to being able to have him with us, even if it is only electronically.
