The COVID-19 pandemic has been affecting the world in the worst possible way. However, if there is one thing that it hasn’t been able to dampen, it is the enthusiasm of anime fans.
Anime Expo Lite is here to remind us of the unbreakable bond that connects all of us otakus!
Anime Expo Lite is an online convention held in place of the physical Anime Expo events. Many other conventions have also adapted the live-streaming concept, but the excitement around America’s largest anime convention is incomparable.
Anime Expo Lite has started registration for the 2-day livestream convention that will be held from 3rd to 4th July! Just because the expo has gone online does not mean that the fun is curbed, as many events have been planned for fans.
If you really want to watch the streaming but can’t fit the dates in your schedule, don’t worry! The ticket holders of the event will be able to re-watch the content. They can also access additional programming from 5th to 16th July 2021.
Tickets to the upcoming Anime Expo Lite will be priced at $5. The proceeds from the event will be donated to the Hate is a Virus Fund. The program is a non-profit community that exists to stand against racism. It creates a safe space for dialogue and education for the AAPI community to stand for justice and equality.
Anime Expo Lite 2021 is the 2nd online live stream of the convention, and it also commemorates the 30th anniversary of the Expo. Once again, various companies like Bushiroad, Bandai Namco Arts, Crunchyroll, Right Stuf Anime, VIZ Media, Sekai Project, and Wayforward will be participating!
From panel discussions, question answers, to exclusive content from Japan, all the otakus are in for a massive treat! Anime Expo had previously announced that its 2021 Lite event will be canceled due to the ongoing pandemic. However, the renewed announcement has brought back joy to fans.
Registration for the livestream is currently open! Register now and get access to exclusive announcements regarding your favorite anime!
