Niconico Net Chokaigi 2020 is Japan’s largest online festival which brings together a wide variety of entertainment such as Japanese tradition, anime, game, music, dance, cosplay and more! In response to the ongoing threat of the novel coronavirus outbreak and cancellation of events, we will be holding its summer edition to unite like-minded fans online once again.

During the 8-day event period (August 9th -16th), Niconico will be live streaming a series of shows where users can enjoy an interactive communication with guests/performers on stage through Niconico’s commenting system.
Below are just a few examples of what is in store - be sure to visit the Niconico website for the full experience!
