With all the anime conventions cancelling due to COVID-19 concerns, we thought it would be fun to host an online anime convention. Details are still developing as to what that will entail, but no matter what happens it will be fun.
Currently we’re working on the technical side. We’re learning what the optimal bitrate to stream an all day event is. We’re experimenting with how to host panelists remotely. And, of course, figuring out the best way for the attendees to enjoy the experience.
More information will be made available over the coming days. Panel submissions are currently closed. And we haven’t decided on the right weekend to host our event. The length of the con will be determined by how many panelists want to present, but our goal is for this to be a two day event.
In the meantime, please follow us on Twitter and Twitch. We’ve been doing stream tests on Twitch the last two days. It’s mostly just streaming anime, but isn’t that what got us here in the first place?
