Aniplex 48 Hours TV to replace AnimeJapan 2020 this weekend

AnimeJapan’s 2020 edition gets an unexpected revamp by Aniplex, proceeding under a different name and format this weekend.

Later in February, AnimeJapan 2020 and Family Anime Festa 2020, events originally planned to take place at Tokyo Big Sight on 21/03/2020 and 22/03/2020, were cancelled due to concerns over Coronavirus.

Aniplex announced that although AnimeJapan 2020 is cancelled, they’ve decided to air several talk events and revisit anime on Abema TV throughout 21/03/2020 and 22/03/2020.

Aniplex 48 Hours TV is going, as the name implies, air for 48 hours straight and will feature several talk panels as well as old and new anime for fans to watch.
