With a partner like Anime Expo, we’re excited to build upon our already robust anime content and create an experience that is unlike anything we’ve been able to deliver before.”
Words from Ray Chiang, Chief Executive Officer of the Society for the Promotion of Japanese Anime, Anime Expo’s organizer:
