So what kind of anime collectibles Jazwares is planning to sell, you might ask? Well, here’s a statement from them that gives us a bit of insight into that below:
Jazwares continually provides a connective tissue between pop-culture, a passionate fandom and the creation of high-quality collectibles that are highly detailed sculpts and decos.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any specific release date for any of these Jazwares x Crunchyroll anime merch. The closest we have is a vague release window of sometime in Summer 2024. That’s the best we got so far. Tune back in to THS later to find out a more precise release date from Crunchyroll or Jazwares when we hear about it.
