2021 convention was scheduled for December 3-5

The organizers for the Tokyo Comic Con 2021 event announced on Friday that they have canceled this year's event due to the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The event was originally scheduled to take place at the Makuhari Messe event center from December 3 to December 5.

The staff then announced that they will hold Tokyo Comic Con 2022 next year, as well as the first Osaka Comic Con. Tokyo Comic Con 2022 is scheduled for November 25 to 27 at the Makuhari Messe, while Osaka Comic Con 2022 is scheduled for early summer 2022 or later at the Intex Osaka venue.

Last year's Tokyo Comic Con 2020 event was held online due to COVID-19. The event began holding a yearly convention in 2016.
