Since this year is the first on record to do without so many different conventions but, the anime fandom’s finding more ways around the issue.
A lot of events like the Anime Expo has found ways to hold their conventions virtually, but also some new events are just getting started.
One of my favorite anime streaming sites, Funimation, is hosting FunimationCon next month with massive panels.
To start things off, FunimationCon is moving forward with two new panels that have recently been announced; My Hero Academia and Human Lost are going to be featured at their own panels during this years FunimationCon. Those two panels will be joining other scheduled panels, Fire Force, Attack on Titan, Fruits Basket, and many more.
More so, Toei Animation is going to be joining in on the festivities along with a special panel. Toei is teaming up with Funimation to do a special interview with Masako Nozawa, the Japanese voice actor of Goku. She has voiced Goku for decades.
Here are the descriptions of the events for FunimationCon:
