We’re just about a month out from the annual weekend when all things pop culture will converge at the Javits Center in New York City. New York Comic Con (NYCC) is set to take place on October 12-15, and Crunchyroll, the ultimate home for anime worldwide, will be returning to the convention with an epic slate of panels, activations, screenings, merch, and more!
Fans will be able to find the Crunchyroll Store at booth #1653 with a wide selection of items, including many Crunchyroll exclusives such as: 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.
And that’s not all. There will also be a second booth, #1643, with Jujutsu Kaisen photo cards, posters for Solo Leveling and A Returner’s Magic Should Be Special, temporary tattoos for After-school Hanako-kun, and an immersive exhibit — The Jujutsu Kaisen Experience.
