The Popverse team is back with live coverage, and even more exciting than that-- we're at San Diego Comic Con! This is the team's first foray into the wonderful world of San Diego in July, and we can't wait to smell the fresh sea air for a whole five minutes before diving straight into the bustle of the San Diego Convention Center.
Join us as we sit down (and wait with bated breath) to hear some (hopefully) pretty exciting announcements from the Crunchyroll Industry Panel. The expected panel speakers are host and writer Tim Lyu and host and video producer Lauren Moore.
The official synopsis from the Comic Con schedule reads: Hear about all the latest and greatest anime coming out of Crunchyroll straight from Crunchyroll's own Tim Lyu and Lauren Moore.
Popverse will be liveblogging the entire panel as it happens, so keep an eye on this page to follow along live or to read a moment-by-moment breakdown of all the best bits at a later date.
The panel has started! OUr two panelists are sharing old photos of Crunchyroll and Funimation's past Comic Cons.
