Leading global anime provider Funimation has unveiled FunimationCon, its first-ever virtual con on July 3-4 celebrating the anime community. The free, two-day virtual festival will bring the spirit of the con experience into the homes of anime fans in the U.S. and Canada with panels, cosplay meetups, forums and more. Funimation will share additional details on the event in the coming weeks.
FunimationCon follows an impressive year for Funimation: Funimation released the box office hit My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising which passed $13 million at the domestic box office; added a robust slate of anime to its expansive catalog of new, classic, and must-view anime available through its streaming service; and released the 30th Anniversary Dragon Ball Z Collector’s Edition, which was a top seller.

Adding more variety to its offerings for streaming service subscribers in North America, Funimation has also announced a deal with NIS America to bring 19 popular titles to the platform — from the magic of the original Cardcaptor Sakura series to Toradora! Teaming with NIS America is part of Funimation’s commitment to offer the best anime to fans. The streamer currently has over 700 anime series and 13,000+ hours of both new and classic must-view anime.
