Kadokawa Shoten and seven major anime producers announced a new anime exhibition "Anime Contents Expo" in opposition to Tokyo International Anime Fair (TAF). It will be held on March 26th and 27th at Makuhari Messe, which is located in Chiba Prefecture next to Tokyo. TAF will be held from March 24th - 27th.

The members of the executive committee
Aniplex
Animate
Kadokawa Shoten
King Records (Starchild Records)
Geneon Universal Entertainment
Frontier Works
Marvelous Entertainment
Media Factory

The anime producers stated in the announcement that they have decided to boycott TAF to show their opposition to Tokyo government's Anime & Manga Regulation Ordinance. Considering the anticipation of the anime fans and the necessity to exhibit the new anime titles, they had been seeking an alternative opportunity.

You know, these things are why I still think Japan functions differently than most countries in the west. Here, in Germany, nothing like that would ever happen. Everyone would whine about it, but still not much would happen.

I'm actually glad they decide to go so much and so obvious against the regulation . Ppl usually just try to fight without any REAL action . It's nice to see that once in a while c: If it's so obvious , the government will be cornered sooner c:

If only I were there , I'd so totally go x3

Good to know that they are still holding the exhibition even if it is in Chiba. I say a outright win to kill the final two days of TAF.

Who will go to TAF which doesn't have Kimi ni Todoke, Gundam Unicorn, Major, InuYasha, Kobato, Bleach, Naruto, One Piece, Fairy Tail, Dragon Ball, Detective Conan, Yumeiro Pâtissière and many more of the mainstream titles taken out of it.



The TAF 2011 is all but dead.

I find it a little funny some of the people here are bashing their own countries just to support Japan.

We aint that different, boys and girls. Be it American, Canadian, Mexican, Japanese, German, English, Brazilian, or whatnot.

That's very risky. If they don't get enough audience it'll look bad

I don't think it's that surprising. If you are an anime fan and you aren't actually from Japan, it means you have a certain respect for the artform that goes beyond some sense of loyalty to a country.

Even in the lightning-fast digitized world of the 2010's, anime and manga are still unique and inspiring somehow, and its a shame to see politicians - outsiders honestly - putting their hands all over a cultural treasure just because they can.

I think people can relate to the situation. I think some of us who aren't from Japan can look at aspects of our own entertainment choices and feel bad about what regulations and social pressures have done to it over time.
