Tokyo International Anime Fair 2011 Cancelled

Tokyo Big Sight

Taking the recent events in Japan into consideration, the Tokyo International Anime Fair 2011 has been cancelled. The decision was announced today at the official website. The Tokyo International Anime Fair has been previously affected by the enactment of so called Bill 156, banning manga and anime corrupting the right and pure upbringing of children and adolescents, and subsequent boycott of the event by major anime and manga companies.

The boycotting companies decided to hold their own event called Anime Contents Expo and they scheduled it on the same date as the TAF, but it’s very likely that this event will be cancelled too.
