It looks like today, Virtual Crunchyroll Expo 2021 is pulling out all the stops guest-wise. We are basically going to get a huge wave of them.

It’s an older trailer, sir. But it checks out.

Virtual Crunchyroll Expo 2021 announced on July 8, 2021 a huge wave of new guests for the event. These guests mostly consist of voice actors and actresses from various anime series. These anime include the smash hit dark fantasy Jujutsu Kaisen, the hilarious bisexual harem comedy My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! X, the upcoming new sci-fi series Sakugan, and more. We even have a new musical guest for us today, so get ready to rock out on August 5-7, 2021.

Plus, Virtual Crunchyroll Expo 2021 is also taking this moment to announce their pet cosplay contest. During the pre-show for Crunchyroll-Hime’s Cosplay Cup, they want people to feature their pets in various adorable anime costumes. You can submit your pet in Twitter under the hashtag #VCRX, with your pet’s name, the character they’re cosplaying as, and a photo for posterity.
