Funimation to Hold Online Anime Convention in July

Funimation to Hold Online Anime Convention in JulyCOVID-19 has put a damper on anime conventions for this year, but there’s good news: Funimation is setting out to replicate the con experience at home.

Funimation Con 2020, the first convention for the anime distributor, will take place online July 3-4. That’s when Anime Expo was set to happen before it was canceled April 17.

Funi describes the con as “a two-day stream of cosplay meetups, industry panels, Q&A sessions and more.”

The official hashtag for the con is #funimationcon.

The con may have been partially inspired by the fan-organized Anime Lockdown con, which ran from May1-3 and featured guests from distributors like Discotek and voice actors.
