All the Announcements from the AnimeLab Panel at MadFest Sydney


One of the biggest highlight for me at any MadFest event is seeing what news comes out of the AnimeLab panel. It showcases where the platform is going and also provides the reveals for what will be coming to the streaming service in the coming season.

The panel at MadFest Sydney 2019 did not disappoint. After kicking off with a montage of videos highlighting the biggest shows currently airing this season the panel shifted gear and started coming out with announcement after announcement. And there’s a lot to look forward to in the coming months on AnimeLab.
