Virtual Crunchyroll Expo welcomes attendees of all abilities. The landscape of interactive digital conferences is evolving fast, and we’re working just as fast to evolve V-CRX so that everyone has a seamless, fully accessible experience.
Please note! When searching the V-CRX Schedule, you may select event filters for those with Communication Access Real-Time Translation (i.e. CART/live-captioning). And because V-CRX is a global event, you may also select filters for content that is already subtitled in various languages. Please also note that all of our live panels will feature CART.
If you need any different or additional assistance, including live-captioning on other events or purchased Meet & Greets, please reach out to us right away at CrunchyrollADA@reedpop.com and we will do our best to support your request. Please note that requests must be made at least 72 hours in advance to allow sufficient time for preparation (and, because this is all digital, possible operational or systemic adjustments).
Crunchyroll and ReedPop are fully committed to providing an accessible experience to all guests and will consider any request by a guest with a disability for reasonable modification of its policies, practices, or procedures or for auxiliary aids and services that will permit equal enjoyment of the goods and services offered at V-CRX. Additionally, we acknowledge that, despite our best efforts, we may not always succeed. Because of that, we welcome your feedback, input, and suggestions on how to improve accessibility at V-CRX, and invite you to send this to CrunchyrollADA@reedpop.com.
A digital meet & greet is separate, ticketed experience to meet with voice actors for a window of time (~2-3 mins.) to talk to a voice actor exclusively via video chat.
Depending on the voice actor, there could also be an option to receive a digital autograph as part of the experience. See details of each event.
In all cases, a recording of the event will be available and accessible on the confirmation page of your purchase.
Sessions available while supplies last.
Find your confirmation email and click the “View Your Order Online” button. It will send you to a confirmation page. Scroll down to the “Your Order” section to find a rectangle containing your meet & greet details. To enter the waiting room, click the “Click Here to Access Session Lobby” button.
All ticket times are listed in Pacific Time, so please make a note of the potential time difference. For example, if a session is slated for 1P (ET), and you live in Oregon, it will start at 10A (PT). You can find a time zone converter here.
Please note: Many fans will have purchased meet & greets for the same day. This means your session may not start punctually, so you will be waiting in the lobby until it is your turn. If you are not at your computer when we come to you, you will be placed back in the waiting room.

You will have the chance to ask questions and chat with the voice actor during your allotted time. To make the most of it, here are some tips:
- Pick a quiet location free from distractions.
- Think of questions you want to ask ahead of time and write them down. Try asking questions that have short answers.
- Be patient – remember there are others in line and that you’ll have to wait your turn.
- Express frustration with the process to the voice actor. They are trying to accommodate everyone.
- Ask inappropriate questions or do anything that makes the voice actor feel uncomfortable.
- Photograph or record the meet & greet. Specific allowances or restrictions will be mentioned on your ticket. If a voice actor allows selfies, ALWAYS ask before taking the photo.
OTHER IMPORTANT INFO:
- There will be a timer in the chat, so you will know how much time is left.
