Major Japanese publishers have been boycotting TAF to express their objections to the Tokyo government's anime & manga regulation ordinance. Anime Contents Expo (ACE) 2012, the effective counter convention to TAF 2012, will be held from March 31st. The anime producers will advertise most of their new titles at ACE 2012 rather than at TAF 2012.
