The largest anime convention on the east coast is just one month away, and Crunchyroll — the ultimate home for anime worldwide — will be taking over the River Pavilion at the Javits Center for all three days of Anime NYC with its biggest celebration ever from November 17-19.
Badge holders will be able to make their way over to the Crunchyroll Stage all weekend for a variety of panels, early looks, and premieres, as well as behind-the-scenes discussions. Meanwhile, tailor-made, immersive attractions will be on-site, such as The Jujutsu Kaisen Experience, the NUMB Art Exhibit (a new original work by Takashi Okazaki), and photo ops featuring titles such as SPY x FAMILY.
Meanwhile, 50+ items will be available from the Crunchyroll Store, including several new exclusives: Cowboy Bebop poster prints and new FiGPiNs for Loid Forger (SPY x FAMILY), Tanjiro (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba), and Super Saiyan Caulifla (Dragon Ball Super). Additionally, attendees will have a chance to purchase items from the Cat-Eyed Boy x Deadmau5 collection. If free swag is more your style, Crunchyroll members and their guests can try out the Premium Member Arcade presented by Crunchyroll Games!
Crunchyroll Games will also be hosting a dedicated space for fans to explore the expansive worlds of One Punch Man: World, Street FighterTM: Duel, and The Eminence in Shadow: Master of Garden.
And finally, Crunchyroll has teamed up with The Town Hall to celebrate Cowboy Bebop with COWBOY BEBOP 25th Anniversary Concert – The Music Feat. The Sinfonietta, an audiovisual experience pairing iconic scenes with symphonic renditions of Yoko Kanno’s Cowboy Bebop Soundtrack featuring beloved songs like “Tank!” and “The Real Folk Blues.” The soundtrack will be performed by The Sinfonietta, an acclaimed all-woman and majority women-of-color orchestra led by conductor Macy Schmidt, at The Town Hall in Midtown Manhattan. Tickets will go on sale on October 18.
