AnimeJapan 2024, the annual highlight for anime enthusiasts, is poised to make history as it gears up for its largest event ever. Slated for March 23 and 24 at Tokyo Big Sight, the event will host over 110 exhibitors, surpassing the previous record set last year.

This year’s AnimeJapan boasts an impressive lineup of major industry players, including Aniplex, KADOKAWA, TOHO animation, Bandai Namco Group, and Disney+, among others. In a significant expansion, the event will occupy all East Exhibition Halls 1-8 of Tokyo Big Sight, providing more space for the diverse array of exhibitors and activities.

Highlighting its commitment to family-friendly entertainment, AnimeJapan 2024 will revive the “Family Anime Festa” in East Hall 3, marking its return after a four-year hiatus. This addition underlines the event’s broad appeal, catering to both avid anime fans and younger audiences.

The global anime market has seen robust growth since 2020, despite challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic. With the industry reaching its largest ever global market size in 2022, AnimeJapan 2024 is poised to be a landmark event, reflecting the industry’s expansive reach and cultural impact.

This year’s event visuals and catchphrases further emphasize the theme of unity within the anime industry. Featuring 21 characters from popular anime series alongside AnimeJapan’s official characters, the AJ brothers, the visuals capture the event’s spirit of collaboration and celebration.

AnimeJapan, which began in 2014, has consistently attracted a large audience, with last year’s event drawing 100,000 visitors. The event’s popularity extends beyond the exhibit booths, with the AJ Stage being a major draw. Fans can get a sneak peek of the excitement with the “AnimeJapan KICKOFF 2024” program, streaming on AnimeJapan’s official YouTube channel from January 19th at 8pm.

As AnimeJapan 2024 approaches, it stands not just as an event, but as a symbol of the anime industry’s continued growth and global appeal. With a mix of business and public days, along with the Family Anime Festa, the event promises to be a dynamic and inclusive celebration of Japanese animation.
