1st Anime Contents Expo's Title List Announced

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
More than 60 titles to be featured at March 31-April 1 event

The official website for the Anime Contents Expo (ACE) revealed the lineup of titles that will be featured at the event. The event will be held for the first time next year from March 31 to April 1. That weekend happens to be one week after next year's Tokyo International Anime Fair (March 22-25). The inaugural outing for the ACE event will be held at Makuhari Messe in Chiba east of Tokyo.

This year's Anime Contents Expo was cancelled six days after the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake (Higashi Nihon Daishinsai) disaster of March 11. If it had been held, it would have run during the same weekend as Tokyo International Anime Fair, which was also cancelled this year.

The title lineup for the event is as follows (note: not all titles are anime-related):

The official website is also listing the companies that will exhibit at the event. Some of the companies include ASCII Media Works, Aniplex, Animate, Enterbrain, Kadokawa Shoten, Good Smile Company, Cospa, Geneon Universal Entertainment Japan, Showgate, Nico Nico Douga, nitro+, Navel, Bandai Visual, 5pb., Starchild, Bushiroad, Broccoli, Frontier Works, Media Factory, ufotable, and Warner Home Video.

Kadokawa Shoten President Shinichiro Inoue said that his company will exhibit at ACE and not at Tokyo International Anime Fair. The Yomiuri Shimbun paper had reported that Aniplex plans to do the same.
