After two years, Tokyo Big Sight will once again host AnimeJapan!
The event, which was first held in 2014, was completely canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions. It was held entirely online earlier this year, streaming events and exhibitor panels and selling merchandise from its website.
A tweet from the official AnimeJapan Twitter account announced that the event will be held in person once again next year, the weekend of March 26-27, 2022. It will take place in Halls 1-8 of Tokyo Big Sight. The theme of next year’s event will be “Cue!” – denotes a feeling of pushing towards a new beginning.
AnimeJapan is organized by the AnimeJapan Executive Committee, which is made up of 19 major industry companies, including Production I.G, Aniplex, NBCUniversal Entertainment Japan, and Tezuka Productions. Since its inception in 2014, its live events have hosted more than 100,000 attendees and more than 100 exhibitors.
So far, the website has been updated to include exhibitor requests and a form to nominate titles for the event’s “Manga we want to see animated” ranking. Look out for more announcements in the near future.
