    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.
