The Virtual Crunchyroll Expo for 2021 is going to arrive soon. So it’s no surprise that they’ve decided to tease us with a small list of upcoming events for the first day.

It’s an old teaser, but it checks out.

Crunchyroll is proud to announce the first round of events and guest appearances for Virtual Crunchyroll Expo 2021. The Expo itself will last from August 5-7, 2021; so this will be for August 5. To start us off, Crunchyroll has something special for us fans of Tonikawa: Over the Moon for You. Apparently, they’re going to do a premiere preview of an OVA for the anime. The OVA itself will air on August 18, 2021; so this is a nice preview of what’s to come.

Ah, more of our most adorable couple.

As for the guest appearances for the Virtual Crunchyroll Expo 2021, we’ve got quite the list for you. We’ve got voice actress Cherami Leigh, known for her numerous anime roles, including Asuna Yuuki in Sword Art Online, Minako Aino/Sailor Venus in Sailor Moon, and Lucy Heartfilia in Fairy Tail. We’ve also got legendary Japanese artist Okitsugu Kado bringing us more of his epic vegetable art, this time of anime characters. Lastly, this year’s Crunchyroll-Hime’s Cosplay Cup will feature legendary cosplayer Vampy Bit Me and legendary nerd content creator Mario Bueno as co-hosts.
