When New York Comic-Con opens next month, Funimation will be ready with not just a new batch of panels, but a whole venue to explore. Welcome to Sakura Park!
No photos yet because it doesn’t exist, but Sakura Park will be the con-goer’s one-stop location for everything anime. As the name implies the area will be full of fake cherry blossom trees, with easter eggs hidden among them in reference to your favorite shows. Special backdrops and standups will provide interesting selfie opportunities. Giveaways will be held at special times for prizes and there will be cosplay meetups throughout the day. If you get hungry a branded food truck will be accessible, and for con-exclusive products and goodies, The Funimation Shop will be located right next door.
As for the panels, Funi’s full schedule has been reproduced below. NYCC 2021 takes place from October 7 through 10.
