The Otaku Coin Association has started an event sponsorship program that involves granting up to 1,000,000 of the community currency, Otaku Coins, for events to be used as prizes.

The world may currently be in a stagnant mood as a result of COVID-19, but we hope to boost excitement for otaku-related events all around the world.

Going into 2020, a number of events have been canceled or forced to be postponed due to COVID-19. Otaku-related events are of course no exception. Within Japan, events such as “AnimeJapan 2020” with usually brings in over 150,000 visitors, and the world’s largest dojinshi self-published works “Comic Market” event usually brings in over 60,000 visitors. Overseas, America’s largest Japanese Anime culture festival “Anime Expo” that usually brings over 35,000 annual visitors has been canceled, too.

Many anime otaku fans are unfortunately being robbed of these exciting experiences this year as many events of all sizes are being affected by COVID-19.

On the other hand, during this COVID-19 disaster, many online events have been organized and are taking place as many are starting to proactively use the internet during this time.

To go along with this movement, it is the Otaku Coins Association’s philosophy to contribute towards keeping the otaku community strong and supporting their developments. To support events that strive to cultivate otaku culture, we have decided to start an event sponsorship program that involves granting the community currency “Otaku Coins” for each of these events.

You can freely choose to use “Otaku Coins” as you revive your events, such as for E-Sports Tournaments, as a prize for online and cosplay events, or as a gift for visitors of fan conventions for self-published works.

You can apply on our webpage. After review of your application, you can expect to receive up to 1,000,000 Otaku Coins for each event for a total of about 10 events.

■ Applicable Events

・Independent or business-organized events related to otaku culture.

・Events with more than 100 expected participants.

・There are no restrictions in regards to in-person or online, free of charge or not, or which country it will take place.
