Crunchyroll Is Bringing Its A Game to Anime NYC
Anime NYC is back for its third outing this weekend, and Crunchyroll, as the convention’s official partner, is bringing its A-game. With various activities and activations spread across two booths, as well as various panels and premieres, Crunchyroll at Anime NYC 2019 is proving why it’s the world’s most popular anime brand.
It makes sense that Crunchyroll, being one of the most well-known names in anime, co-sponsors Anime NYC, which is New York City’s largest convention dedicated to anime, manga, and Japanese culture. Crunchyroll has been sponsoring Anime NYC since its inception in 2017, and as the convention grows, it only makes sense that Crunchyroll’s presence would as well. Indeed, Crunchyroll at Anime NYC 2019 is bringing photo ops, game demos, premieres, and more.
“The team at Anime NYC cares deeply about anime fans, so it’s a natural fit for Crunchyroll to work with them as the ‘Powered by’ sponsor of the show,” says Mary Franklin, Head of Events at Crunchyroll. “We are excited to meet up with fans in New York, hear what they think, and bring them great Crunchyroll content.”
Anime NYC marks Crunchyroll’s final convention appearance of the year, and they are wrapping up in style.
