 Anime Expo is the largest anime and Japanese pop culture event in North America. The larger it grows, the more world famous talent they can book straight from Japan. 2018 promised to be no exception, with Anime Expo’s social media pages posting teasers the entire week leading up to their announcement.
Every year they host “Anisong World Matsuri”. Anisong World Matsuri is a company that is in collaboration with BANDAI NAMCO Arts, Inc., Amuse Inc., Sony Music Entertainment (Japan) Inc., and other companies.
