You know, I love it when I'm right about a prediction that there will be a fair held just outside of Tokyo proper.

Hope they steal so much business from TAF!

Hahahaha. This is great! Hopefully Shueisha and the others will join in too. Fight the power!

It reads the event, this allows the companies to still promote the anime. They can't move the entire building situated in Tokyo, so they held the expo/event in Chiba. This would likely include part of TAF, the half that are boycotting it and the half are still there.

If they can't promote it, it won't sell to the consumers(fans).

Ha, I expected this to happen. I hope that they're more successful than TAF so they can shove their success in Ishihara's face!

You go, Kadokawa. Way to lead the charge.

I can see this event becoming a major thing.

Good job, Kadokawa.
For this I shall continue to buy your $100-for-two-episodes Blu-rays.

I knew this would happen. They put way too much money into their TAF plans to not come up with an alternative of some sort.

You make it sound like the organizers of TAF are the ones with a backup plan called ACE to be held in a venue outside Tokyo proper.

One of the surreal parts of this story is that some of the ACE executive committee members are (or were) also TAF executive committee members. In fact, TAF still lists Aniplex, Kadokawa Shoten, and King Records as executive committee members on its website. It even still lists Shueisha and Shogakukan (along with Kadokawa Shoten), even though those three were part of the 10 publishers that announced their boycott 19 days ago.

I'll almost bet a lot of Japanese yen that we may be seeing the last Tokyo Anime Fair because of this new law. The replacement will be held either in the Chiba Prefecture east of Tokyo or Kanagawa Prefecture in the city of Yokohama, with possible future fairs in Kyoto and Osaka.

Money talks, Mr. Ishihara, and right now the money is talking its way right out of Tokyo. Enjoy that taste of fail.

With the business downturn isn't doing so well, boycott isn't helping much either. There's no TAF 2011 next year as from given information. The money still stays in Japan nonetheless, but majority of the business and trade still have an impact on the metropolis of Tokyo, where event-expos are being force to held elsewhere either around or close by Tokyo, capital city.

Business as usual, no consumers, no sale. Regardless what the politician thinks it is right.

I thought the context of the article and the content of my previous post made it kinda clear that I was talking about the boycotters with the backup plan.

And now we wait to see how TAF and Ishihara will respond. Ishihara will most likely just rip on otaku and TAF probably won't be held.
