Phew! The convention season is starting to pick up, and we are excited to be heading out to Anime Central! This is our only convention between the coasts for 2018, so we can’t wait to have some fun with our fans.

Do you like games? Well we hope so because we are bringing two fun games for you to play! First up, we have game play stations at the Crunchyroll Booth (#IND-06) to try out DanMachi: Memoria Freese, our newly launched mobile game! Take your team into a dungeon and fight off big bosses! We’ll even be giving out LED Memoria Freese wristbands to anyone who plays (while supplies last). We have two different colors to choose from and you bet these babies will light up any dark dungeon.

While you are at the booth, don’t forget to pick up your “Grimoire” for our Black Clover Scavenger Hunt and start your quest to join the Magic Knights. Find our staff or cosplayers around the Exhibit Hall to collect a stamp from four of the major Magic Knight squads. Got ‘em all? Bring your “Grimoire” back to the Crunchyroll booth to pick which of the four squads you want to join and get an exclusive patch!

Crunchyroll and VRV Premium members! Don’t worry, we got your back. Literally. We are bringing back our large backpack bags and we have 5 awesome versions to choose from. Just come by the booth and log in at one of premium reward stations to take one of these bags home with you. We only have a limited supply, so come early to get the one you want!

That’s not all we have at the booth! Swing by our store to buy some awesome stuff to bring home. Here’s a taste of what we’re bringing with us:

* Rep’ it for the ninjas with your own Sasuke Hoodie for $55 in sizes S - 3XL
* Make your room a little more magical with this The Ancient Magus’ Bride Wall Scroll for $25
* Dragon Ball Super may be done but it isn’t forgotten with this Dragon Ball Super tee for $25 in sizes S - 3XL

We even have a free gift with every total purchase over $30 while supplies last! Come by early to make sure they don’t run out!

I like games, but not when they're censored. Especially not when we're lied to about it and ignored when we demand an explanation. Have to wonder what that booth is going to be like.

Ah! You guys are showing the first Cardcaptor Sakura Movie? That's awesome but drat it I'm no where near Anime Central. Hope you guys put this up in theaters like you did with the second movie (but hopefully in better locations ^^; )
