Tsubasacon is an annual convention currently held at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena and Riverfront Ballroom and Conference Center. Historically, Tsubasacon started in 2004 and was held in Charleston, WV.
In 2006 Tsubasacon moved to it's current home in Huntington, WV and has grown in scale dramatically over it's 11 year tenure while still maintaining it's small hometown con charm. Popular large events include the Masquerade, Anime Music Video Contest, Concerts, Game Shows, and the Midnight Rave.
Tsubasacon is a three day fun-filled event that offers late-night dances, video programming, gaming rooms, and many informative guest and fan panels. Many of the attendees take advantage of the opportunity to cosplay at the convention, and there are many gatherings for fans of different anime and manga series.
There was a mix up with our group code with the Holiday Inn, the correct rate is $118.00 a night, you can either call to get this rate or search for group code "TSU" on their site, but we suggest calling directly.
The Carolina Manga Library is a non-profit organization that sets up free libraries at conventions for all attendees to enjoy. They bring over 3000 manga, American graphic novels, webcomics, and novels for fans to enjoy.
By setting up a quiet place for people to relax at conventions, the Library seeks to promote literacy through the medium that they love.
Vitamin H Productions is the professional panelist group that has been sweeping the South. Founded in 2013 by Kidd “The Maniac” Bowyer and Ryan “Pathos” Prime and fueled by a love of all things geeky, Vitamin H aims to create the most memorable convention programming you've ever experienced (and give folks at cons who might not be into Q&As and cosplay something to actually DO besides sit in the game room and play Cards Against Humanity for hours on end).
Thanks to our expansion we are excited to announce the addition of Tokyo Attack to our game room this year!
In addition to 12 Japanese arcade machines they will also be running a DDR Tournament at 5:00 PM on Saturday.
Sleeping Samurai, founded in 2007, brings Interactive Entertainment to conventions across the country. Event attendees participate in foam weapon battles, tournaments, instructional panels, training sessions and more.
The game room area is the place to be for everyone attending Tsubasacon and especially is a MUST if you love video games. Our free play area consists of consoles from the past like the SNES and the Genesis, all the way to the present with the Xbox 360 and PS3.
Not only this, we will have an area to accommodate all you handheld, gamers too! If you’re more of a competitive type, we host multiple tournaments every day for you to show your skill and prove you’re the best.
If you’re more of a spectator, we will also be having events throughout the day for you to enjoy and participate in.
