Today, Crunchyroll is announcing all the exclusive content, talent and merch coming to its inaugural and highly anticipated convention –– Crunchyroll Expo –– which is just 2 weeks away.

 

On August 25-27, Crunchyroll Expo (CRX) will be coming to Santa Clara to connect anime fans in-person around the medium they love and to learn from the creative minds behind their favorite content and characters. As the leading anime multi-media company with more than 1M subscribers, Crunchyroll has locked down some of biggest names in the industry to bring fans an experience like no other.

Here are some highlights to look for at Crunchyroll Expo!

  • Amazing Guests: Two-time Olympian Johnny Weir, Mythbusters Alum Adam Savage, and writer and illustrator of fan-favorite The Ancient Magus’ Bride Kore Yamazaki will all be in attendance hosting signings and panels. Kore will even be creating 10 original sketches for a few lucky winners at the convention.

  • Dragon Ball Super Puzzle Hunt: This free-to-play interactive scavenger hunt adventure allows attendees to collect the Dragon Balls scattered across the convention center to help save the Earth!

  • Yoshitaka Amano Gallery: For the first time in the US in more than 7 years, fine artist Yoshitaka Amano will be exhibiting his artwork in a gallery at CRX.

  • Incredible Cosplay: Cosplay superstar Mostflogged will be debuting her costume of our very own mascot — Hime! In addition, we’ll be hosting the Crunchyroll Expo Masquerade ULTRA DELUXE  (cosplay runway contest) where fans can compete with other cosplayers and performers for awesome prizes!

  • Castlevania!: The director + CEO of Powerhouse Animation Studio—the team behind the massive cult favorite game Castlevania—will be joining CRX.

  • Dream Daddy: By now you’ve seen this viral game taking over your newsfeeds. The creators and voice actors behind Dream Daddy will be at CRX to talk about the hit game.

  • RWBY Meet & Greet: The creative team behind the smash-hit western anime RWBY will be at CRX to talk with fans.

  • Kids Day: Sunday will be filled with family-friendly programming, including 15-foot inflatable characters, face painting, fun coloring activities and more. Plus, kids under 6 will be admitted for free on Sunday, while anyone under 12 will only have to pay $10 –– for context, a one-day pass on Sunday costs $40, so that is significant savings!
