My Hero Academia

It’s back. The thrill of the frills, the basking in masking, the threat of sweat. The shining city of Melbourne was overrun by a kaleidoscope of color on Saturday, September 17, as the very first Crunchyroll Expo Australia took place, and it was a glorious sight to behold inside and out.


So much talent and dedication to characters both big and small — in popularity and size — was on full display, so we just had to capture a few rays to share with y’all from Down Under.


And here they are!
