Are you heading to SXSW Interactive this weekend? Then go ahead and start preparing yourself because we’re bringing more anime awesomeness than you can fit in a regular convention booth.

FUNimation Experience | Banger’s Brewhouse @ the Nerdist Compound
Fri/Sat/Sun | 12pm - 6pm


    • Ever wanted to arm-wrestle Goku? Come join the FUNimation Experience and test your strength against Kakarot himself! If you win on Friday or Saturday, you’ll be entered to win Seasons 1 – 9 of Dragon Ball Z on Blu-ray!


    • Plus, take pictures of your battle with Goku (or pose with our giant Attack on Titan wall!) and you could win even more prizes! Just share your pics using #SXSWAnime on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and 3 lucky winners will take home a huge anime prize pack!* (Be sure to follow us as well so we can DM you if you win!)
