Convention Connection for Friday, August 6th 2021

Events Geek Culture

Our spotlight convention this first weekend of August is Virtual Crunchroll Expo 2021. Due to the pandemic, Crunchyroll Expo will be a online-only experience this year, with programming running from Thursday, August 5th and runs through Sunday, August 8th. Though attendees will not be gathering in person, Crunchyroll Expo will still offer digital meet and greets with U.S. and Japanese anime voice actors. Anime-based programming over the four days includes fan panels, behind-the-scenes looks at a number of anime series, watch alongs, world premieres, and more.

Though Virtual Crunchy Roll Expo 2021 is open for free to all, attendees still need to register HERE for access to the online event.
