What an honor for Shibuya Productions to celebrate the seventh anniversary of our event the Monaco Anime Game International Conferences (MAGIC) on February 26 and 27, 2022.

Who could have believed, that a Gala Dinner, which was initially organized to celebrate the creation of the company, was going to transform into an inevitable yearly pop culture event in the Principality of Monaco.

 Who would have thought that after only 4 years, MAGIC will be exported to Japan, in Kyoto, Japanese culture’s heart.
