Crunchyroll’s Anime Expo 2022 schedule, in-person panels announced

Its been three years since the last in-person Anime Expo, and this year marks the first since the merger between Crunchyroll and Funimation. Anime Expo 2022 is going to be bigger this year in every way!

But, before I go over the details on the events and panels, let’s go over some safety tips that all congoers should know.

The Anime Expo 2022 dates will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center from July 1 to July 4, 2022. Crunchyroll is pulling out the stops this year with panels for new series, interactive activations, world/international premiere screening, exclusive merch, and more!

If you can’t attend, don’t worry, you can find merch online, but be prepared to hunt for deals. In addition, Crunchyroll will be hosting daily recaps on Twitter, Instagram, Tik Tok, and YouTube channels.

You’ll receive a warm welcome from Chrunchroll’s VTuber mascot Crunchyroll-Hime on a monitor in the South Hall Lobby. The South Hall Lobby is home to the New Crunchy City Hall HQ, which has previews of new anime and unique swag.

Spy fans should be on the lookout for a secret area for photo opps! You can feel Crunchyroll’s presence from the moment you step onto the showroom floor.

Head to booth 3000 for badge activation and grab a free drawstring bag every day while supplies last. The bags will have different anime characters on them, but you’ll get Aoashi and Rent-A-Girlfriend Season 2 photo frame cards and a That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime stress ball with other promo goodies!

You can also visit booth 3000 to win prize packs like photo opps with The Rising of the Shield Hero characters Naofumii, Raphtalia, and a 10′ tall Filo. They also have a shikishi or autographed art boards gallery with over 40 artists, and you can play the latest games from the Crunchyroll library.

Booth 1600 is Cruncyroll’s merch store, with over 30 collectible products and apparel, including a Funko Pop! of Piccolo from Dragonball wearing his driving school outfit! Crunchyroll is also hosting panels with special guests to discuss Spy x Family Part 2, JUJUTSU KAISEN, Ranking of Kings, and Chainsaw Man.

Those who love to stream their daily dose of anime can check out the international premieres of YUREI DECO, Classroom of the Elite Season 2, BLUELOCK, and Shine On! Bakumatsu Bad Boys!, and more! Crunchyroll will also premiere the North American My Hero Academia Season 5 OVA episodes and co-present the world premiere first two episodes of FUUTO PI with Bandai Namco’s Kamen Rider panel.

Crunchyroll will stream the Shine On! Bakumatsu Bad Boys! and the My Hero Academia OVA episodes soon. You’ll want to relax somewhere with all of these epic events, and Crunchyroll has you covered!

Head over to the JW Marriott between 11 am and 11 pm from July 1-3 to check out the Crunchyroll Lounge! You can buy anime-themed drinks, take pop-up photo opps, and unique activations will be present in this lobby sidebar.

There are special-theme coasters for a limited time, and the best part is that everyone is welcome! You don’t have to have a badge to enjoy this fantastic experience.
