  • World and domestic U.S. premieres of both the monstrous "GIBIATE" episode 9 and the first five minutes of the Crunchyroll Originals series "Noblesse."
  • Crunchyroll Games to showcase exclusive gameplay content and announcements alongside the game developers and creative staff of NextNinja, Bandai Namco Entertainment, and Gaudium, the studio behind the upcoming Crunchyroll Game, "Grand Alliance."
  • Panels will be available to stream live in the Theater District at Virtual Crunchyroll Expo, and will be uploaded to the V-CRX On-Demand section periodically throughout the weekend to ensure fans can catch up on any of the action they might have missed.
