Crunchyroll @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 Brand #5: Crunchyroll

Crunchyroll connects anime and manga fans across 200+ countries and territories with the content and experiences they love. In addition to free ad-supported and subscription premium content, Crunchyroll serves the anime community across events, theatrical, games, consumer products, collectibles and manga publishing.

Anime fans have access to one of the largest collections of licensed anime through Crunchyroll and translated in multiple languages for viewers worldwide. Viewers can also access simulcasts — top series available immediately after Japanese broadcast.

The Crunchyroll app is available on over 15 platforms, including all gaming consoles.

Crunchyroll, LLC is an independently operated joint venture between US-based Sony Pictures Entertainment, and Japan’s Aniplex, a subsidiary of Sony Music Entertainment (Japan) Inc., both subsidiaries of Tokyo-based Sony Group.

Crunchyroll will do…

They will showcase a variety of content at AX and you will bump into them all over the hall! JapanUp! pick up some of their activities you can’t miss!

Once you enter the Los Angeles convention center, you will meet Crunchyroll-Hime, which is Crunchyroll’s official mascot and VTuber. Let’s say hi to her! In the South Hall Lobby, you will also find  New Crunchy City HQ, which is Crunchyroll’s immersive experience loaded with new anime previews, unique swag and even a secret photo opp area that looks an awful lot like a certain anime family’s apartment in the fictional country of Ostania. 

They have two booths #1600 & #3000 at the exhibit hall. Badge holders will be able to stop by Booth 3000 to pick up free drawstring bags, pictured below, featuring a different anime series each day. The picture below is just one example of what to expect:

There will also be Aoashiand Rent-a-GirlfriendSeason 2 character photo frame cards, as well as a That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slimestress ball and some awesome prize packs up for grabs. Stick around for a photo with The Rising of the Shield Herocharacters Naofumi, Raphtalia and a massive 10-foot-tall Filo; try out the latest Crunchyroll Games titles; and behold an awesome gallery of shikishi (autographed art boards) featuring the work of over 40 artists. 

PLUS!!

For all your merch needs, Booth 1600 has you covered with over 30 collector-worthy products and apparel, including exclusives like the driving school outfit Piccolo from Dragon Ball Z
