  • Anime Fusion 2018 Official Photos

    Here at Anime Fusion, we strive to bring you the absolute best experience and customer service. We recently had a slip up; and would like to take the time to apologize to you. We could make all the excuses in the world, but none of them would matter. As many of you know, it has been almost 3 months since the convention; and we have yet to get any of the official convention photos from our professional photographers posted anywhere. This is an issue. We understand that many of you use this service that we provide to show off your cosplays. Cosplays that you may have spent hours upon hours on. Cosplays that you may have spent months of paychecks on. We appreciate any and all understanding from our fans; but we want you to know that we too find it unacceptable, and will be thus forth working to make ourselves better in the field of customer service.


    We hope that you enjoy the now completed photos from Anime Fusion 2018. Click here to view.

  • 2019 Theme Announcement!

    Can you believe that this is already our 8th year running?! Time flies when you’re having fun at an anime convention. In the past couple years we’ve had a couple hiccups. Our hotel got torn down, we had to deal with a ton of stairs, and eventually we moved again. Well now we feel like we’re back on our feet. And what better year to do so than 2019? That’s why we’ve decided that the theme for this year will be *drumroll* ...Infinite Possibilities!


    2018 was a great year! And we are so glad to have moved to the Crowne Plaza. We also announced more features to the convention like the family activity room and the quiet zone. We want to build off of that energy. The possibilities are ...well… infinite! Our goal is to make our convention even better this year. We want to let everyone know that just because you have a hiccup doesn’t mean you can’t go for gold next time. You can do anything you put your heart into. Never stop trying!


    We can’t wait to see all of your lovely faces in October. Until then make sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram at @AnimeFusionCon. If you ever have any questions, don’t be afraid to send a message our way on either platform.

    Who wants to play video games? We sure do! That's why we've created some awesome tournaments for you to participate in over the weekend. 


    • Split/Second Tournament Friday 7:00 PM: If adrenaline, explosions, and over-the-top racing action doesn’t sound like fun to you, you can ignore this tournament. For the rest of you, this is one tournament you CAN’T afford to miss! Split/Second is the high octane racing action game that will leave you breathless and on the edge of your seat! From race to survival, this tournament will push our competitors to the limit. You need guts. You need reflexes. You need a little bit of insanity. If this sounds like you, then enter the Split/ Second Tournament and burn rubber!
    • Dragon Ball Z Fighter Z Tournament (DBZ:FZ) Saturday 4:00 PM: Dragon Ball Fighterz will be Anime Fusion’s premier Saturday tournament! Test your skills against your fellow Fusion attendees. Sign-ups begin on Friday upon the opening of the Video Gaming rooms. First 32 are guaranteed entry! If enough setups are available and we get a secondary list of 32 interested fighters we will expand to 64 TOTAL ENTRANTS! GET. HYPE.
    • Gamers Cup Tournament Sunday 12:00 PM: Enjoy a secret selection of curated games, letting you test your skills against your fellow gamers with some classics and newer titles. Each round will be a different game and will test different skills. Keep in mind, all will relate in some way to our convention’s theme of Mad Science.

    In addition to tournaments, Video Gaming will have arcade cabinets, virtual reality games, and console gaming available during open hours!
