“We are excited to be able to parlay the traditional Anime Expo into a virtual experience. Since 2017, AX has been live-streaming select panels as well as from the convention floor, so it is a natural transition for us to produce a virtual event. As everything in 2020 is different, we see a unique opportunity to be able to share our passion for Japanese pop culture not only with those that would have attended AX but now with any anime fan no matter where they live,” said Ray Chiang, CEO of The Society for the Promotion of Japanese Animation, AX’s organizer. “With our Anime Expo Lite line-up, we know fans will find plenty of events and special guests to entertain and keep them engaged.”
Fans can expect to see:
- Special guests, including artist/character designer Yoshitaka Amano
- Panel discussions with industry leaders
- Industry announcements
- Live content
- Exclusive content from Japan
