With the pandemic only barely in the rearview mirror, it's easy to look ahead at events in preparation without having so much fear of buying tickets to a canceled movie, show, or any outdoor event.
This has also been the case for conventions. Only recently have we begun to get to the point we were before, with Disney and Marvel even stepping back into the ring. Luckily for anime fans, that trend trickles through mediums and remains the same.
Crunchyroll Expo 2022 has announced a very ambitious hololife performance that will take place at the convention and it is being hyped up as never-before-seen. But first, we'd like to share a list of the recently announced slate of guests in this new press release alongside the images of each.
Kinoshita Baku is the director and character designer of ODDTAXI, a Crunchyroll co-production following the mundane life of a solitary taxi driver, who suddenly finds himself entangled in a mysterious disappearance in his town.
Adam McArthur is the English voice of Yuji Itadori in JUJUTSU KAISEN. Fans can also hear Adam’s voice in numerous other animated projects, including Star Wars: The Clone Wars and video games Far Cry 5 and Final Fantasy XV: Comrades.
Anne Yatco is a Filipino American voice actor and the English voice of Nobara Kugisaki in JUJUTSU KAISEN, in addition to a variety of roles in To Your Eternity, BEASTARS, Violet Evergarden: the Movie, Godzilla Singular Point, Mihoyo's Genshin Impact and Devilman Crybaby, among many others.
Kaiji Tang is the English voice of Satoru Gojo in Jujutsu Kaisen. His work can also be seen in Bungo Stray Dogs, MEGALOBOX, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, and Kill la Kill, among many others.
