Teen sensation Beckii Cruel, who shot to superstar status in Japan after the nation fell in love with YouTube videos of her dancing to anime pop songs, is the latest special guest to be announced at the MCM Expo London Comic Con, appearing on both indoor and outdoor stages on the Saturday of the show.
The Isle of Man schoolgirl has enjoyed idol status in Japan ever since a video of her dancing to popular Japanese Internet meme Danjo became a smash hit with fans and media alike. Not only is her YouTube channel massively popular, racking up almost 18 million upload views, but Beckii has also released music CDs, DVDs and even two best-selling English language learning books!
Beckii was brought to a mainstream UK audience last year, when the story of her incredible rise to fame was covered in a BBC Three documentary, Beckii: Schoolgirl Superstar.
