With Anime Japan 2021 being a bit over a month away they've released key art for the event and it features Taichi from Digimon Adventure:!
Anime Japan 2020 was cancelled due to coronavirus concern, and while it was planned to have 2021 as both an in-person and online event, they decided to cancel the standard in-person portion for safety reasons.
Digimon has generally had sizeable displays at Anime Japan (with occasional news appearing), and like they did in 2018 with tri., Taichi shows up in the key art for the 2021 event (above), featuring a number of classic and modern anime characters.
The art features Taichi holding his Digivice: and wearing an Anime Japan 2021 branded shirt.
Products have also been announced. There will be can badges for 400 yen each (random) and acrylic stands for 1,430 yen each (not random.) Each will have 20 different designs, with the new Taichi art certain to be one of the featured designs for both products.
A profile of Anime Japan we've used for a few years (altered year by year as appropriate). It doesn't quite apply this year, but should explain the (normal) intent of the event:
Anime Japan is a massive exhibition event in Tokyo. It's more akin to E3 than what we'd think of as an anime convention (in fact, the first 2 days are all business seminars and such that aren't open to the general public.)
During the days open to the public many companies will be showing off anime merchandise, new and upcoming anime, and tons of related content.
The online event this year is March 27th and 28th. Tickets for viewing are available, and events will have a very short archive period for those who can't view live (just a bit over a day it appears.)
It appears they will still have the dedicated business days this year on March 29th and 30th, but no ticketing for those publicly, as expected.
More details to come!
