Culver City, California (Sept. 7, 2023) – Crunchyroll, the ultimate home for anime worldwide, has big plans in the Big Apple for an anime-filled return to New York Comic Con at the Javits Center from October 12-15, 2023. Crunchyroll is bringing a supercharged slate of panels on the hottest new series, next-level activations, premiere screenings, new merch, and more.
Get ready heroes, Crunchyroll is bringing a top-secret My Hero Academia special screening to New York Comic Con. Early previews don’t stop there, as pirate-lovers can come aboard Crunchyroll and Toei Animation’s One Piece panel to catch a new English dub episode and hear from the English voices behind some of the show’s most popular villains. Attendees can also get a head start on the fall season at the US premiere of Dr. STONE Season 3, Part 2. In addition, Crunchyroll is screening episodes of A Returner’s Magic Should Be Special, which includes an exclusive premiere of episode 3!
The Crunchyroll Store is setting up shop at booth #1653 with 50+ ani-mazing items, including the all-new Crunchyroll exclusive items: Attack on Titan-themed watches featuring Eren and Levi; a Chainsaw Man Pochita Otaku Lamp; a new Trigun Funko Pop featuring Vash and Kuroneko; and a Sailor Moon Glitter Version FiGPiN. After shopping, attendees can snap picture-perfect moments at digital kiosks featuring some of the most beloved anime, including One Piece, My Hero Academia, GOBLIN SLAYER II and more!
New York has swag all its own, but we’re bringing ours to a second booth—#1643! Here fans can pick up JUJUTSU KAISEN photo cards, grab posters for both Solo Leveling and A Returner’s Magic Should be Special, and get tatted with temporary After-school Hanako-kun tattoos. Swag in hand, fans are invited to enter The JUJUTSU KAISEN Experience, where they will find themselves immersed in the world of the hit dark fantasy series.
