AnimeJapan 2020 has been cancelled due to ongoing converns about that damn coronavirus. This isn’t the first thing in the industry to be hit by the virus, with the Animal Crossing Switch being delayed, and PAX East being hit with multiple attendee cancellations.
The event was due to take place on March 21-22 this year, but the AnimeJapan released a statement announcing the cancellation of the upcoming convention. The cancellation was made in respect of the Japanese government asking to cancel large-scale events in the interest of public safety amid the coronavirus outbreak. You can read the full statement below:
Of course this is sad news in general, but it’s especially sad as we were expecting to hear about the new project from Bleach creator, Tite Kubo during the event.
