The first day of AnimeJapan 2022 has come to an end and we’ve received exciting new announcements such as the RWBY series Ice Queendom trailer and the JoJo Stone Ocean Part 2 release date and trailer. But there’s still one day left! And for fans who aren’t able to make a trip to Japan to hear the announcements in person, there’s still an opportunity to catch a live stream from the AJ Stage.

Tickets are still on sale now for those wanting to catch the official stream from AnimeJapan’s website. It’s 2,600 yen (approximately $21.30) for a second day ticket. And regardless of timezone, an archive will remain available until March 29th. So there’s still time left, but don’t wait too long!

It’s important to note that translated subtitles will NOT be available. And judging by the first day, many large announcements will be streamed simultaneously on YouTube. Also, AnimeGeek will be covering highlights from the event, so even if you’re unable to attend or watch live, you can still keep up with the latest anime news.
