Tokyo International Anime Fair 2011 Cancelled~

The official website of the Tokyo International Anime Fair 2011 has officially announced that the event has been cancelled in view of the unstable power and the unspecified damages to Tokyo Big Sight~

TAF 2011 was already tainted by the event earlier this year when various media companies, including Kadokawa and ANIMATE boycotted the event to voice their opposition against governor Ishihara and the amendment to the Youth Healthy Development Ordinance~

A separate competing event Anime Contents Expo, backed by many of the large media/anime companies, was subsequently formed and schedule to hold their event on the same weekend but it is likely that the event will be cancelled as well in view of the need to conserve power supply during this tough period~
