    Crunchyroll Expo 2022 Preview

    Crunchyroll Expo 2022 Preview

    On this heels of a downer that was Anime Expo 2022, the CaliConBlogCast tries to be upbeat as we head back up the coast to San Jose to preview for what is being dubbed "hololive Expo" - Crunchyroll Expo 2022. Plus we look into matchup between World Cosplay Summit participants vs Florida Man, a pair of "political" topics involving GTA VI and Anime Matsuri, & an update to the hunt for THE Persona 5 slot machine.

    Editors Note: The TV spot for Bullet Train played in the podcast is not the spot that was featured at Anime Expo Lite, but more of one of the TV spots that has been circulating around.

However, there is some news that cannot be ignored on this episode of the CaliConBlogCast, like another death within the anime industry, a string of deaths within a 24 hour time span that includes Takahashi-san, and Atlus FINALLY announcing the Persona franchise on the Switch.

    Persona Comes to Xbox & PC, But Not Nintendo [REAL]

    Persona Comes to Xbox & PC, But Not Nintendo [REAL]

    On this episode of the CaliConBlogCast, the crew reflect on the passing of Billy Kametz before going into the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase and the one HUGE announcement that got JRPG fans out of their seat - and why we finally understand the pain that Switch owners are going through and the extreme amount of copium huffed - as well as what Capcom and Square Enix showed off. We also go over the latest from Anime Expo as well as breaking down the Guests of Honor for Crunchyroll Expo, SacAnime Summer, and Kumoricon.
