In 2013, Tony VALENTE joined the publisher Ankama. Even if it was not his first comics, since he started his career in 2004 (Les 4 princes de Ganahan, Hana Attori, and S.P.E.E.D. Angels), he thrived with the manga Radiant. Radiant had won the Daruma of the best international manga from the 2016 Japan Expo Awards.
Working at the same time as the writer, illustrator, and colorist, he is a very hard worker. He now releases three volumes of Radiant a year, while collaborating with NHK on the production of the Radiant anime.
Tony VALENTE is coming to present this anime adaptation of Radiant, the very first French manga adapted as an anime by a Japanese producer, and not the least as it is NHK, the Japanese national TV. This panel is also an opportunity for the audience to discover the first exclusive images of the anime!
