  • Crunchyroll, the global leader in bringing the ultimate anime experience to fans in over 200 countries and territories, is excited to announce its plans for Anime Expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center from July 1 – 4, 2022 with a bounty of offerings ranging from insightful Panels of the hottest new series, interactive activations, world premiere screenings, exclusive merch, and more.
  • When arriving for the first in-person Anime Expo since 2019, attendees will be greeted with a warm welcome in the South Hall Lobby by Crunchyroll’s official mascot and VTuber, Crunchyroll-Hime, on a large monitor to share her excitement for everything happening at the event. And across the way, also in the South Hall Lobby, will be Crunchyroll’s immersive experience, New Crunchy City HQ, that will give previews of the hottest new anime and provide a unique swag. Those who spend enough time sleuthing around New Crunchy City may also spy a secret area for photo ops that will resemble a certain anime family’s apartment located in the fictional country of Ostania.
  • “This is the first Anime Expo since Crunchyroll and Funimation have come together, and we’re pulling out all of the stops to surprise and delight fans,” said Gita Rebbapragada, Crunchyroll’s Chief Marketing Officer. “We’re delivering something for everyone to enjoy and become a part of our world.”
  • Right at the entrance of the showroom floor, Crunchyroll’s presence will be immediate. At the main activation (Booth 3000), badge holders can stop by to pick up free drawstring bags (different anime series each day), Aoashi and Rent-a-Girlfriend Season 2 character photo frame cards, and a That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime stress ball among other promo items while supplies last. Guests can also visit the booth to enter to win awesome prize packs; photo ops with The Rising of the Shield Hero characters Naofumi, Raphtalia, and a giant 10′ tall Filo; check out a shikishi (autographed art boards) gallery with over 40 artists; play the latest titles from Crunchyroll Games library; and more.
  • Crunchyroll will also have its merch store (Booth 1600), which will include over 30 collector worthy products and apparel as well as exclusives, including a Funko Pop! figure of Dragon Ball’s Piccolo donning his famous driving school outfit.
  • Fans are invited to check out hosted panels by Crunchyroll that will include special guests from around the world to discuss SPY x FAMILY, JUJUTSU KAISEN, Ranking of Kings, and the highly anticipated Chainsaw Man.

  • With all of these exciting premieres making their way to Anime Expo, Crunchyroll can confirm the new acquisitions of Shine On! Bakumatsu Bad Boys! and the My Hero Academia Season 5 OVAs. Each title will be coming to the streaming service in the near future.
  • Those looking to refresh can head on over to the Crunchyroll takeover of the JW Marriott on Friday, July 1 through Sunday, July 3 from 11:00 am to 11:00 pm where anyone with or without a badge can take advantage of anime themed drinks for purchase at the themed “Crunchyroll Lounge” lobby sidebar, pop up photo ops, and special activations.
