Crunchyroll has announced its plans for Comic-Con International 2022.

In addition to a booth presence and an industry panel—as well as some must-see Dragon Ball Super: SUPER HERO content—here’s an overview of everything Crunchyroll has in store for this year’s show.

CRUNCHYROLL INDUSTRY PANEL
July 21, 2022
TBD
Room 6A

All the latest and greatest anime coming out of Crunchyroll straight from the source from Crunchyroll’s own Tim Lyu and Lauren Moore.

DRAGON BALL SUPER: SUPER HERO Panel
July 22, 2022
TBD
Hall H

Just one month prior to the theatrical release of Dragon Ball Super: SUPER HERO, join us for a Q&A with talent and production members, including Toshio Furukawa (Japanese voice of Piccolo), Christopher R. Sabat (English voice of Piccolo), Akio Iyoku (Executive Producer) and Norihiro Hayashida (Producer) for stories and insights from the film – and of course, giveaways and an exclusive look at approximately the first 20 minutes of the film only for fans at SDCC.

Beyond the excitement of the panel, Toei Animation will produce a one-of-a-kind experience at the Crunchyroll Dragon Ball Super: SUPER HERO-themed booth (#4135), including a replica of Piccolo’s House featured in the film.

There will also be buses from the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System wrapped in a commemorative design inspired by the movie, so be sure to catch one as you’re commuting to and from the con.

CRUNCHYROLL CONCERT SERIES AT THE RADY SHELL
July 22 and 23, 2022
The Rady Shell at Jacobs Park

Two nights of fun and immersive music and dance experiences including:

CRUNCHYROLL AND 88rising PRESENT:
CRUNCHYROLL-HIME DANCE PARTY WITH DJ JUN INAGAWA WITH ATARASHII GAKKO!
July 22, 2022
7:00-9:30 p.m. PDT
The Rady Shell at Jacobs Park

A high-impact performance with anime inspired elements and dance crew. 88Rising’s powerhouse J-Pop girl group ATARASHII GAKKO! represent a new generation of Japanese youth, one embracing personal expression and pushing against traditional boundaries a little at a time. The outlandish quartet — composed of kawaii-but-fierce Mizyu, wildcard Suzuka, graceful Kanon and funky Rin — break down genre walls to create music mixing elements of pop, jazz, hip-hop, rock and more. DJ Jun Inagawa opens the Crunchyroll-Hime Dance Party for anime fans to get their groove on.

ATARASHII GAKKO! (literally meaning “new school” in Japanese) are a group of four young women who are redefining what it means to be a girl group. They wear sailor-fuku (sailor suits) uniforms in a style that were worn by Japanese students back in the 70’s and 80’s with long skirts and pulled-up socks, and staunchly refuse to be objectified. Their aggressive and expressive dance moves, which they choreograph themselves, are a hybrid of the energy of Japanese butoh dance, heavy metal headbanging, and hip-hop street dancing. Musically, AG! brings together elements of modern J-Pop, Showa-era kayokyoku, rap, punk, dance music, but it would be pointless to try to categorize them in any genre.
