Luckily, the Aniplex Online Fest 2021 will be happening in a month’s time, providing a divine opportunity for all concert-deprived anime fans to relive the hype of such events.

Aniplex Online Fest 2021 will be streamed live on YouTube on 4th July at 10AM JST. If you’re following Pacific Daylight Time, the event will start on 3rd July at 6PM. You can join the online concert for free.
