                          ^ First post was updated late yesterday (and re-checked again today. Coming to A Theater Near You! panel is from Eleven Arts (even though it's doesn't say it). Maiden Japan/Kraken Releasing has an industry panel for the very first time. Same thing can be said for King Records.

                          I'm not sure if the industry portion of schedule is 100% finalized (see below). I will hold off the individual threads for now.

                          JAST USA is currently not listed on schedule - https://twitter.com/jastusa/status/1007524483165511680 (June 15)

                          Right Stuf will be at AX (https://www.rightstufanime.com/post/...s-anime-detour) but currently no industry panel is listed.
