More and more companies are shifting their strategies online — and that includes not only conventions themselves, but also the exhibitors and panelists who attend them. Funimation, the anime streaming company, has joined those ranks as they announced they’ll be holding a FunimationCon on Friday, July 3 – Saturday, July 4.
The two-day event will include virtual cosplay meetups and Q&As — including panels for the voice casts of Fruits Basket, One Piece, and Fire Force. There will also be several Sony Music Labels Artists participating, like Blue Encount and Flow. No word yet on if their popular exclusives (typically a Funko Pop!) will be heading online as well, but we can hope.
Registration for the two-day event is free.
