No Japan Expo in 2020, this is now official. Organizers of the show devoted to Japanese culture have broken the news on April 14th on Twitter. This decision follows French President Emmanuel Macron’s decisions saying that all main gatherings are banned at least until mid-July. The edition is postponed to July 15 to 18, 2021.

The decision to cancel the show has been hard for organizers and manga publishers as they always make the best of the event to get known by the public and present their novelties.
