Otakuthon was originally an annual Otaku Anime Marathon, where many local Montreal fans would get together to watch through an entire day filled with high quality features playing on some of the best audio-visual equipment. The tradition is carried on, where we showcase a wide selection to give all viewers something to enjoy. There are screenings including older classics, little-known wonders, popular picks (to introduce your friends to), and even some of the most contemporary and cutting-edge titles.


Keep your trigger-finger(s) joy-happy at Otakuthon's video gaming section. Otakuthon will have lots of multi-player titles that will keep the crowd cheering as players square off against each other in contests of skill, sheer luck, and even of foreign languages! Table-top games, such as TCGs, RPGs, Go, and Shogi will also be available.


From Lucky Stars to Mighty Mice, we invite each of you to take part in any number of our contests during your stay at Otakuthon. Impress everyone with whatever you've got to win any of our prize packs.


Join a panel discussion and network yourself into meeting and sharing with like-minded friends. Enlist into a workshop to get some hands-on experience learning something wonderful.

Otaku Anime Manga Library

Need a nice quite spot to relax during the convention after running around all day? Come drop by the manga library room where you can sit back and read a large variety of manga at your own leisure.
