What attractions will there be at New York Comic-Con this October? Will the strike finally be over by that point? HAHAHA, unlikely. What isn’t currently experiencing stalled contract negotiations is the anime industry, so you can at least count on Crunchyroll. The distributor revealed today their full list of panels they have scheduled for NYCC.
Here’s the full slate of what Crunchyroll plans to premiere on their app within the next three months.
The anime landscape is rife with shonen tournaments, isekai adventures and harem rom-coms, but there isn’t much we could claim was “one of a kind” — until Dr. Stone. A semi-educational “Bill Nye meets the apocalypse” program where real-world science drives the plot at all times is certainly unique for this genre, but it works. And we’ve been waiting for the third season for quite some time. Crunchyroll confirmed today that episodes will begin this April.
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.
