Listen to this article

With a supercharged offering of new and returning series premiering this Fall, Crunchyroll, a global leader in providing fans with the ultimate anime experiences, is headed to New York Comic Con at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center from October 6-9, 2022. Attendees will be immersed in the hottest anime this fall with installations, exciting panels, and exclusive premiere screenings.

“Crunchyroll returns to New York Comic Con with an incredible slate of experiences for both anime fans and the anime curious, immersing them into a dynamic world where everyone belongs,” said Gita Rebbapragada, Chief Marketing Officer, Crunchyroll. 

NYCC badge holders will have the chance to be the first to see the US premiere of Chainsaw Man, one of the most highly anticipated anime series of the year that follows the journey of Denji as he becomes “Chainsaw Man” – a man with a devil’s heart. Crunchyroll will screen the world premiere of the English dub of the series, even before the subtitled episode premieres on Crunchyroll, alongside a Q&A with the English dub cast. 

Additionally, Crunchyroll will be hosting panels for the smash-hit superhero series My Hero Academia with the English voice of Deku, Justin Briner as a guest among others joining him, as well as for the highly anticipated One-Piece Film Red, the next theatrical adventure from the long-running series, coming to North American cinemas on November 4.

On the show floor, attendees can enjoy two unique Crunchyroll booths. The first booth (#1557), themed “Movies in the City,” will exhibit a Tokyo skyline in addition to a photo opp designed to be a replica of the Forger family’s apartment from the breakout new anime series SPY x FAMILY. The second booth (#1545) will host two photo opps for One Piece and Chainsaw Man where main characters Denji, Makima, Aki, Power, and Pochita will be gathered next to a unique chainsaw sculpture art installation. Epic My Hero Academia character monuments depicting fan favorite moments will also be displayed throughout the weekend in various locations.
