Crunchyroll is capping an exciting year of convention experiences by taking a bite out of Anime NYC (Nov. 15-17), New York’s largest dedicated anime, manga, and Japanese pop culture convention. Crunchyroll is the “Powered by” sponsor of Anime NYC for the third year, continuing a commitment to create unique experiences for the anime community all across the country.
“The team at Anime NYC cares deeply about anime fans, so it’s a natural fit for Crunchyroll to work with them as the ‘Powered by’ sponsor of the show,” said Mary Franklin, Head of Events at Crunchyroll. “We are excited to meet up with fans in New York, hear what they think, and bring them great Crunchyroll content.”
This year, Crunchyroll (#622) has two booths for fans to enjoy, including the first-ever Crunchyroll Games booth (#549) at Anime NYC. Activities and activations include:
- Photo opportunities galore – The all-new STONE mosaic wall will make its debut, and fans are invited to snap a pic and have their photos placed alongside other passionate fans to create a mural. Fans are also invited to celebrate the 20th anniversary of One Piece with a special photo wall featuring fan-favorite characters from the beloved series.
- Crunchyroll Games demos – Fans are invited to check out the Crunchyroll Games booth to enjoy playable demos of the upcoming Mob Psycho 100: Psychic Battle and Naruto x Boruto Ninja Tribes, alongside Attack on Titan TACTICS and Grand Summoners.
- Shield Hero Training Room – Are you ready to be a hero? Well grab your shield and test your skills to level up. Brave rising heroes will get a chance to pop balloon monsters with their very own legendary shield! The pressure is on since you’ll only have limited time to battle some balloon monsters. Get ready for the level grind of your life!
