EXPERIENCES 2017-08-19T01:02:19+00:00


There’s. So. Much. To. Do. Here’s an overview of some of Crunchyroll’s experiences and events!


Crunchyroll Expo is home to five stages – Main Stage, CRX Stage, Hime Stage, Yuzu Stage, and Sudachi Stage!

Home to talks, workshops, screenings, and surprises, you’ll see our special guests, the people who bring anime and manga to America, and your fellow fans showcase what they’re passionate about! You’ll laugh, you’ll learn, and you’ll see a world premiere or two!

CRX Chats!

We’re trying something new! Informative and entertaining talks no more than 15 minutes in length, CRX Chats are inspired by TED Talks and look to be a new way to share ideas and create conversations. It’s just one speaker onstage talking about anime fandom, history, or culture. Think of CRX Chats as micro-panels, and you can see them each day on the CRX Stage!


Most of Crunchyroll Expo’s guests will sign autographs or pose for photos with fans in our Autograph Hall. All autographs are free, but guests will be appearing in our Autograph Hall for a limited time. Want a signature or selfie? You’ll need to grab a free autograph ticket, and you can get info now!

Dragon Ball Super Puzzle Hunt!

Toei Animation Inc, in partnership with SCRAP Entertainment, brings an interactive Dragon Ball Super experience to Crunchyroll Expo! The Dragon Ball Super Puzzle Hunt calls attendees to become Future Trunks in a free-to-play scavenger hunt adventure and collect the Dragon Balls scattered across the convention center to save the Earth!

Ancient Magus’ Bride Preview Screening!

The Ancient Magus’ Bride is one of the most anticipated screenings of the fall season, and Crunchyroll Expo will present a preview screening together with its author – Kore Yamazaki! This once-in-a-lifetime event is Sunday on our Main Stage!

Masquerade ULTRA DELUXE!

Cosplay takes center stage on Saturday night! Our Masquerade ULTRA DELUXE is half costume contest and half Japanese gameshow… and all awesome! Whether your a cosplayer on stage or a fan in the audience, you’ve got a chance to win fame, fortune, and prizes!

Food Trucks!

Hungry? Crunchyroll Expo pulls together some of the Bay Area’s best food trucks! Brought to you by Restaurant to Another World, our Food Truck Food Court will transport your tummy to paradise – filled with foods including burgers, sushi, tacos, and Korean BBQ! Look for our food trucks outside the convention center nearby Artist Alley!

Art Gallery!

We’re honored to welcome illustrator Yoshitaka Amano to Crunchyroll Expo. The immortal illustrator behind Final Fantasy, Vampire Hunter D, and more, Amano will hold talks and signings at Crunchyroll Expo – and present his first gallery show in the US in over five years! Head upstairs next to our Yuzu Stage to discover one of Japan’s most iconic illustrators up close!

Kids HQ!

Bringing a little one? Our Kids HQ is your spot for family fun! Sunday at Crunchyroll Expo, our Kids HQ will feature anime screenings, coloring, and cool activities for kids!

Giant Inflatables!

Hang with Crunchyroll’s biggest guests… literally. Crunchyroll will feature a giant inflatable Colossal Titan from Attack on Titan and a giant Goma-Chan. Yeah, you want a photo with a 40 foot Japanese cartoon seal!
