KOTOBUKIYA @Anime Expo 2022 SneakPeak Report by JapanUp!

JapanUp! is proudly pleased to introduce Japanese companies that liven up Anime Expo 2022 in Los Angeles! Before we celebrate the event in July, Let’s get to know well about the vendors and be ready for having an amazing time there!

JapanUp! Featured Japanese Brand #1 : KOTOBUKIYA

Kotobukiya was founded on January 7th, 1953 as a small toy store in Tachikawa, Tokyo. Since its founding, Kotobukiya has further expanded to various kinds of collectibles, making waves in the hobby industry with its stunning plastic model lines and figures.

Kotobukiya’s lineup brings a wide range of popular fan favorites to life, ranging from BISHOUJO(美少女) statues of famous comic characters, to ARTFX J statues of anime characters, and even includes original characters, such as those from the Megami(女神) Device series. With a reputation for quality and creativity, Kotobukiya is committed to its promise to deliver exciting products that will excite fans the world over!


KOTOBUKIYA will be displaying some of the hottest anime and game properties at Anime Expo! For the largest anime convention in the US, our representatives from the Japan and US offices hope to bring products that anime and game fans will look forward to seeing.

Those that visit our booth (#4200) will be able to check out samples of products that have yet to reach the US. If there are products that you want to see up close before you decide to pre-order, you may get a chance to see them at our booth! Currently, there are also plans to bring a few sculptures of top secret products that we hope to reveal for the first time at Anime Expo!

While much of it has to be kept confidential during the planning stages for the event, we are excited to provide a few hints to give you an idea of what you might see at the booth. JUJUTSU KAISEN has been incredibly hot, and we are excited to continue this line and bring a few pieces for fans to check out. MEGA MAN is also a classic and beloved series that we’re looking forward to proudly displaying at our booth. And finally, we made a big splash a couple months ago with our DARKSTALKERS BISHOUJO series.


While KOTOBUKIYA does not have plans to sell standard products at their booth this year, there is one item of theirs that you can find only at Anime Expo 2022, and it will be on sale at their booth. They hope you’ll look forward to any updates and come by to get this exclusive product!


Guests will be able to see samples of their latest products up close and talk with representatives from the Japan and US offices about news and announcements. Guests will also be able to purchase our Anime Expo 2022 exclusive from the booth, as well as check out some never-before-seen prototypes of products that have yet to be officially announced.

While they have yet to solidify any activities or giveaways at the booth, Check out their social media for any latest updates. The links are below on this page!


This time would have to be the first reveals of certain products, and the exclusive! Additionally, attendees will be able to directly talk to company representatives, so this is a great chance to ask any burning questions!

Aside from the booth, KOTOBUKIYA will be hosting a panel (Sunday, 7/3 @ 12:00 PM – Room 404 AB)  to give attendees their latest updates on new products and announcements! Perhaps there will even be a few giveaways…
