We are less than two days away from the star of Anime Expo 2017. Like us, you may have already started planning your schedule of what panels and autograph sessions you may want to attend. As it has every year, Aniplex of America has quite a few things planned for the largest anime convention in North America with world premier screenings of the Anohana English dub, the Fate/Grand Order – First Order – English Dub World Premiere, The irregular at magic high school The MOVIE US premier and more to come. 

The Aniplex of America booth will feature a bevy of events on their live stage including quiz shows, talk shows with special guests, and raffles. The Aniplex of America booth will also include demo areas for guests to try out the Fate/Grand Order mobile game, and a special Summoning Stand shipped straight from Japan. Special appearances by popular cosplayers Lisa Lou Who (winner of SyFy channel’s new TV Show “Cosplay Melee”) and Linda Le, known as Vampy Bit Me, will also be at the Aniplex of America booth and throughout the convention.

A limited number of guests will receive a special Anime Expo x Fate/Grand Order collaboration lanyard at badge pick-up (while supplies last), and a chance to ride the Fate/Grand Order themed shuttle bus. Other exclusive giveaways include: mini-posters, Aniplex of America 2017 – 2018 calendars, Command Seal temporary tattoos, t-shirts, sticker sets, and more.
