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.
