Crunchyroll Announces Sakura-Con 2017 Plans!

From meet ups to exclusive swag, you'll want to prepare yourself for this weekend

Here at Crunchyroll, we’re keeping the momentum going with the next stop on our convention tour -- Sakura-Con!

We’ll be in Seattle, Washington this weekend for the 20th anniversary of Sakura-Con and we’re bringing you all a power-packed line up of panels, merch, and of course, free swag.

And speaking of free swag -- let’s not forget the specialty item for all our Crunchyroll Premium Members! These premium backpack bags were gone by day 2 at Anime Boston this year, so be sure to stop by the Crunchyroll booth (#515) and log in to claim yours.

Not a Crunchyroll Premium Member yet? No problem! Sign up for a free trial at the Crunchyroll booth (#515) and you’ll still get a free bag.

We’ll have 5 different bags to choose from -- Berserk, Free!, Naruto, Twin Star Exorcists, and Kiznaiver. Supplies are limited so be sure to come by early to ensure you don’t miss out on the bag you want.

Limit one bag per Premium Member account.
