posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

AnimeJapan's sixth annual convention will focus on "rock" (roku) at Tokyo Big Sight from March 23-26. The event released its key visual showing characters from Code Geass to Detective Conan as band members.

The key visual, planned merchandise, and event schedule was announced at the Animate Ikebukuro head office on Friday. Hoodies and ticket holders were unveiled as well as a Sword Art Online Gibson guitar that attendees will be able to bid on for charity auction.

An entire area of the convention hall will be dedicated to artwork, merchandise, and cosplay centering on "rock" and the Production Works Gallery corner will highlight the sound behind anime, like music, special effects, and voice acting. AnimeJapan 2019 will have two presentation stages can entertain 500 each and another two stages can accommodate up to 1,000 spectators each.
