Online celebration of the anime community to feature panels, cosplay, forums and more.
CULVER CITY, CA – Global anime content provider and streaming platform, Funimation, has announced its first-ever virtual con on July 3-4 celebrating the anime community. The free, two-day virtual festival brings the spirit of the con experience into the homes of anime fans with panels, cosplay meetups, forums, and more. More information on FunimationCon is available here.
“FunimationCon is a chance for us to give back to a community which has supported us for over 25 years by re-imagining the convention experience,” remarked Funimation general manager, Colin Decker. “With so many anime events being canceled this year, we’re jumping in to fill the gap with a new way for fans to come together and enjoy some great content and experiences.”
FunimationCon follows an impressive year for Funimation: Funimation released the box office hit My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising which passed $13 million at the domestic box office; added a robust slate of anime to its expansive catalog of new, classic, and must-view anime available through its streaming service; and released the 30th Anniversary Dragon Ball Z Collector’s Edition which was a top seller.
FunimationCon is available in the U.S. and Canada.
