We are happy to announce a very special autograph signing for Anime Central this year!  We teamed up with our friends at Sekai Project for a very exclusive autograph session with the character designer for Overlord – Takahiro Yoshimatsu!  He has drawn a special piece of art that we will have limited copies on hand for the autograph session.  Stop by our booth in the dealers hall for more details on how to get your ticket for the session!  




Stop by the Funimation booth to get some great deals on new and classic titles! In addition to sweet savings that can be found at the booth, we’ll have some special events at the booth such as: Lucky Pin Draw! When you spend a certain amount at the booth, you’ll get to choose a free Funimation-exclusive pin! Pin tiers are:

  •  $75 – 1 pin
  • $125 – 2 pins
  • $175 – 3 pins
  • $200 – 4 pins

With every purchase we’ll be handing out collectible shopping bags! Also you can be sure to find special autographed items based on what you buy.
