This year's event will also have a Shield Hero photo op across three booths!
Publisher and anime company KADOKAWA revealed more details about its plans for Anime Expo 2019, including some collaborations with Crunchyroll. In addition to a joint booth with BOOK☆WALKER (booth #1606), attendees can look forward to a KONOSUBA panel and The Rising of the Shield Hero photo ops.
Guests for the KONOSUBA panel—hosted by KADOKAWA and Crunchyroll—include series composition writer Makoto Uezu and producer Rie Ogura. The panel takes place on Saturday, July 6 from 2:30pm to 4:00pm, and there will also be autograph sessions available on Friday and Saturday at 5:10pm in Kentia Hall.
The Rising of the Shield Hero photo spots will be available at three booths: KADOKAWA (#1606), Crunchyroll (#2600), and Frontier Works (#3511). Stop by all three to check out different illustrations of the series' characters and take photos with them.
KADOKAWA has more in the works for its booth, too, including a merch shop, exclusive handouts, and a cosplayer. A new visual will be revealed for the upcoming Made in Abyss movie, as well, so stay tuned for more on that.
Anime Expo 2019 takes place July 4-7 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
