It was only inevitable. Crunchyroll, one of the biggest online anime streaming service, has officially announced today that they are going to be creating a new anime convention called Crunchyroll Expo (CRX)
Crunchyroll Expo will present three jam-packed days of anime, manga, games, cosplay, and more. Fans can expect everything they already love about Crunchyroll’s appearances at past conventions – unique exhibits, immersive activations, and access to massive crowds of Japanese and American guests. The event will also feature a host of special events, premieres, and interactive features focused around anime pop culture, the latest content coming out of Japan, and ways for fans to connect with each other to share their passion for anime. In addition to anime, Crunchyroll will bring together key partners, exhibitors, and influencers from the video game, manga, and cosplay worlds to keep fans excited and engaged the whole weekend.
If any group that embodies anime that could pull off a giant anime convention, Crunchyroll would be it. The website for CRX is officially up now atcrunchyrollexpo.com. Stay tuned for more information.
Crunchyroll Expo will be held on August 25-27, 2017 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
