The organizers of Anime Frontier recently announced that its inaugural event has been postponed until 2021.

Anime Frontier is a new Japanese pop culture festival that was originally scheduled to take place in the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, Texas from May 20th to 22nd this year. Anisong singer ZAQ was among the many guests scheduled to appear. The organizers have since announced that the event will be delayed until May 14th to 16th, 2021, due to the current coronavirus crisis.

“After tremendous deliberation, we feel postponing until 2021 is the only right decision we can make,” said Anime Frontier Show Director Peter Tatara. “We look to create an inviting, exciting, safe, and healthy celebration for Texas’ anime community - and there’s no way to achieve this now without putting this same community at COVID-19 coronavirus risk.”

All attendees who purchased tickets to Anime Frontier will have the option to roll their tickets over to 2021 or receive refunds. Likewise, all exhibitors will have the option to move their booths to 2021 or be refunded. Attendees and exhibitors should all receive email communications with additional details.

Anime Frontier was launched by the creators of Anime NYC, one of the biggest anime conventions in the US. Anime Frontier 2021 tickets, guests, and further details will begin to be announced later this year, and fans wanting to learn more can subscribe to the Anime Frontier newsletter and follow the event on Twitter, Facebook, and .Instagram
