Programming Highlights



Video Rooms

It wouldn't be an anime convention if there weren't any good anime to watch.  Our video rooms are a great place to sit back and relax while checking out the latest and greatest anime from Japan - from old favorites to the latest releases, from the popular to the obscure.  It's almost guaranteed that you will enjoy or discover some great anime in our video rooms.

And that's not all; the video rooms will also be featuring popular Japanese Dramas (J-Dramas) based on popular anime or manga, fan parodies, and anime music videos (AMVs).

Video tracks are presented in Japanese with English or French subtitles, English dubbed, and French dubbed.  Please consult the video room schedules to find out which titles are presented in which language.

Our screening schedule will feature some of the following theme blocks*:

Viewer's Choice Anime: A selection of anime titles chosen by you, the fans!

Mecha Anime: If you like robots, body armours and even bigger robots, then this block is for you!

All Gundam Anime: A mecha anime series (or universe) that's big enough to have a theme on its own.

Fan Parodies:  Although otakus love their anime, they also love it when fans make fun and hilarious parodies of their favourite anime or video game. 

Horror Anime: From the supernatural to the psychological to simple blood & gore, these anime titles will play on your fears and insecurities that could you leave screaming in terror (from the video room).  (NOTE: Some shows may not be suitable for a younger audience, 16+)**

Special Screenings

Full Metal Alchemist Mini-Marathon: A late night, non-stop viewing of this popular anime series.


As children, brothers Edward and Alphonse used the clandestine science of Alchemy to try the unthinkable - resurrect their dead mother. They failed, unleashing an alchemic reaction that ripped their bodies apart.

Four years later, Ed and Al are combing the country in a desperate search for the Philosopher's Stone - the legendary artifact that could be their last hope to restore what was lost or to be their undoing.  The grisly truths found in the quest for the relic will test their souls in ways unimaginable.

Featuring Vic Mignogna as the English voice of Edward Elric (Ed), Aaron Dismuke as the English voice of Alphonse Elric (Al) and Caitlin Glass as the English voice of Winry Rockbell.

This is Otakudom:  A story about the "real life" experiences of otakus as they attend an anime con in this very popular "otakumentary".

S.T.E.A.M. The Movie:  From the creators of This is Otakudom, comes the (mis-) adventure of the agents of S.T.E.A.M., as they thwart (and constantly fail miserably) the forces of E.V.I.L. in their diabolical (not really) plan for world domination through anime bootlegging.
