Anime Expo Lite July 3-4, 2021

GameStop, Inc.

Anime Expo celebrates its 30th Anniversary virtually with Anime Expo Lite July 3-4 2021, featuring exclusive streamed content and more

While the world has changed, our favorite conventions and expos are doing everything they can to the experience to us since we can’t go to them. Anime Expo is bringing us the experience with Anime Expo Lite, a virtual AX experience featuring exclusive streamed content from industry partners like Bushiroad, Bandai Namco Arts, Crunchyroll, Right Stuf Anime, VIZ Media,  and more still to be announced. Registration for the expo is now open and only costs $5 plus processing fees. I believe the total comes out to about $7. While information about the event is still coming, we do know that the World Cosplay Summit is hosting a video competition with the videos being streamed during AX Lite. So we will get our cosplay fix. We’ll also get special game related panels and special online content presented by Sekai Project and WayForward with more participants to be announced later. Here what we can expect from the gaming programming:

  • Panel discussions with industry leaders
  • Industry announcements
  • Live content
  • Exclusive content from Japan
  • Q&As
  • Community & Educational Segments
  • Community Features

“Hate Is A Virus began as a grassroots movement in March 2020 when we started to witness a rise in anti-Asian hate crimes,” says Tammy Cho, Co-Founder of Hate Is A Virus. “Staying silent was not an option for us. We are working to amplify, educate, and activate AAPI to stand for justice and equality in solidarity with other communities, and are excited to partner with Anime Expo to continue this mission.”

“Hate Is A Virus programs include mental health support and developing effective, community-based solutions for safety, representation, solidarity-building, and much more,” adds Michelle K. Hanabusa, Co-Founder of Hate Is A Virus. “We do this by mobilizing AAPI to participate in local and national campaigns, creating safe spaces for dialogue and education, and providing actionable steps and funding in partnership with trusted community leaders and organizations.”

“2021 is an important year of transition, of possibilities, of community, and of awareness. Many fans ignited a love for Japanese pop culture during the past year, and millions more deepened these long-held passions even more,” says Ray Chiang, CEO of The Society for the Promotion of Japanese Animation. “As we mark Anime Expo’s 30th Anniversary this year, we recognize an important opportunity to acknowledge the tremendous social and cultural awakenings that are happening across the country and impacting AAPI communities. As we prepare to engage a global audience with the most extensive roster of online programming we have ever presented, we are honored to also stand with the Hate Is A Virus organization and support the work of the commUNITY Action Fund.” [via SJPA]
