Liza Soberano and Ylona Garcia are set to grace Crunchyroll's 2024 Anime Awards in Tokyo, Japan this March.

The award-giving body shared their list of presenters earlier in the week, which includes Ylona as a presenter and Liza as In-Show talent.

Other celebrity presenters that have been named include RuPaul's Drag Race season 10 winner Aquaria, Ms. Marvel star Iman Vellani, Grammy-nominated recording artist Labrinth, former WWE superstar Mercedes Varnado, rapper Megan Thee Stallion, and some of the people behind Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Joaquim Dos Santos, Phil Lord, and Chris Miller.

In an Instagram post on the Anime Awards page, Ylona revealed her favorite anime to be Naruto, My Hero Academia, and Kamisama Hajimemashita.

The Pinoy Big Brother alum also previously had a partnership with video game Valorant.

Meanwhile, the Lisa Frankenstein star previously lent her voice to the Netflix animated series Trese in 2021. Despite receiving criticism over her role as Alexandra, Liza said voice acting became a "new passion" for her.

"It's something I want to continue doing. I want to take lessons for it so that I can apply it in acting," she said in July 2021 in a podcast interview.

The Anime Awards, given by the streaming service Crunchyroll, recognize anime shows, characters, and artists that fans love the most.

The 2024 show will be held on March 2 at the Main Banquet Hall of the Grand Prince Hotel Takanawa in Tokyo.
