Convention also reveals new KimiKoe Project anime

The official website of the AnimeJapan convention revealed the stage event schedule on Friday. The Cobalt Blue Stage will hold the "Warner Brothers Film New Film Stage Event" on March 23 from 3:15 p.m. to 3:50 p.m. The schedule listing states that the event will be for a new Japanese anime film that Warner Bros. will distribute. A separate announcement will reveal the film in early February, and the stage event will provide more details. Staff and voice actors for the project will appear.

The Killer Pink Stage will also hold the "Seiyū Danshi desu ga...? Stage" event for the Seiyū Danshi desu ga...? (I'm a Male Voice Actor...?) television program and a KimiKoe Project announcement on March 23 from 12:50 p.m. to 1:25 p.m. The stage event will reveal a new anime in the KimiKoe Project. The Seiyū Danshi Desu ga...? program's Yūto Uemura and Kazutomi Yamamoto will appear for the program's special presentation. The KimiKoe Project's male audition grand prix winner Kenjiro Tsuda will appear for the anime announcement.

AnimeJapan 2018 revealed last March that the second part of the KimiKoe Project was auditions for male voice actors. The first part of the KimiKoe Project was an audition for female voice actresses, who then formed a unit and starred in the Kimi no Koe o Todoketai anime film.

In addition, the Oasis Green Stage will hold the "New Smartphone Game Production Announcement Stage" event on March 23 from 4:10 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. Guests for the event will be announced in the future.

AnimeJapan 2019 will change the order of business days and public days. In previous years, the business days took place on Thursday and Friday before the public days on Saturday and Sunday. This year, the public days will be held first on Saturday, March 23 and Sunday, March 24. The business days will follow on Monday, March 25 and Tuesday, March, 26.

The 2019 event will be the convention's sixth event, and will be held at the Tokyo Big Sight. AnimeJapan debuted in 2014 as the merger of two previous events — Tokyo International Anime Fair (TAF) and Anime Contents Expo (ACE). The event drew 152,331 attendees across four days in March 2018.
