Anime NYC took place over the weekend and Crunchyroll had a lengthy list of acquisition announcements to reveal. Let’s go through ’em…
Here’s what Crunchyroll will be up to at the Anime NYC convention next month. First off, a panel for Mob Psycho 100 III will be held on November 20 featuring the Japanese voice of Shigeo “Mob” Kageyama, Setsuo Ito. Another panel will reveal That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime the Movie: Scarlet Bond with producers Kouhei Eguchi and Mika Iwahashi from 8bit and producer Bungo Kondo from Bandai Namco Filmworks in attendance.
US manga localization titans Kodansha have just announced they’ve made arrangements for Hajime Isayama, creator of Attack On Titan, to make his first public appearance in the US. He waited until he’d finished the entire series to do this, but better late than never, right?
VIZ Media made several announcements at Anime NYC. Here is a quick rundown:
If you’re heading to Anime NYC next month, you have Viz to thank for the presence of Naruto and Boruto….more specifically, the women who perform their voices. Maile Flanagan, voice of Naruto, and Amanda Miller, voice of Boruto (and Sailor Jupiter) are coming to the Year Of Naruto panel held by Viz at the con. They will also be at the signing table at various times throughout the weekend of Anime NYC; check your schedule for when they’ll be available.
A new convention is headed to New York in 2017 at the Javits Center.
