Some of the major highlights from the Red Stage on the convention's first day include the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba and Jujutsu Kaisen special talk stages, the Teasing Master Takagai-san anime stage, and the Team RWBY project presentation.

The former two will feature cast members from both mainline anime series, discussing the franchise and (hopefully) upcoming events for both. The Jujutsu Kaisen special stage will also feature actors from the Jujutsu Kaisen 0, which releases in North America this weekend.

The Teasing Mister Takagi-san anime special stage will serve two purposes, the first being a celebration of the series’ third season which recently ended. The second is to discuss the franchise’s upcoming movie, which will be releasing in Japan this summer.

Finally, Team RWBY's special project presentation, which begins the Red Stage events, will likely announce a new anime adaptation of the project. Although unconfirmed, this is the most likely announcement for Rooster Teeth’s hit original story.


Anime Japan 2022 Green Stage Day One

There is a Netflix Anime Japan event on March 26th on the same day as the Stone Ocean event which has JoJo on it's schedule. https://t.co/rQQHADbsXY

Easily the single most important highlight of the Green Stage Day One festivities is the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Stone Ocean anime special stage. Stone Ocean debuted its first 12 episodes via Netflix’s streaming service, and Japanese and international fans have been clamoring for any information on new episodes.

Hopefully, the Stone Ocean special stage will shed some light on when fans of the series can expect new episodes. Even with airing an incomplete season, Stone Ocean became one of the biggest anime hits over the last year.

Finally, the highlights of Blue Stage Day One festivities include the Hunter x Hunter 10th anniversary celebration stage and the Dr. STONE Ryusui TV special anime stage.

Hunter x Hunter is one of the most celebrated anime series of the early 2010s. To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the anime’s debut, the Japanese voice actors for protagonists Gon Freecs and Killua Zoldyck will be present. The two will perform for the live crowd, as well as record their celebratory performance.

The Dr. STONE Ryusui TV special anime stage is something fans are very much looking forward to. Although engaging, the short length of the anime’s second season left fans wanting more. Hopefully, a trailer for the special as well as official release information will be announced at this Blue Stage event.
