Today, Aniplex announced that they will be holding the Aniplex Online Fest 2021 on 4 July 2021.
I really love that many events are held online. Of course, it would be great to have something in person, but online, everyone around the world can participate in something that they might not be able to if it was in person only.
The info about the event is still sparse, but we do know that they will be showing off content from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Sword Art Online Progressive, Fate Grand Order Anime Project, and Madoka Magica. These titles are just part of their first round of announcements, so there will definitely be more. Aniplex has also announced that there will be live music programming from some of the biggest artists in the Japanese music industry.
I really hope that we get some sort of announcement about a new Sword Art Online series that isn’t just the upcoming Progressive film.
Aniplex Online Fest 2021 is going to be open to anyone in the world, as long as you have access to YouTube, and all content will be provided in both Japanese and English. The event will be held on 4 July 2021 starting at 10 a.m. Japan Standard Time.
