Whether you're a novice making an AMV for the first time or a seasoned veteran, we would love for you to submit an AMV. Awards will be given to the top AMV's.
Never made an AMV before? All you need is a little knowledge about how to edit video clips from your favorite anime/J-RPG series together and a great song to go along with it. Just check out one of the many How-To guides at AnimeMusicVideos.org and you'll soon be on your way.
If you have any questions, contact the AMV Contest Coordinator.
Do you have the perfectly built Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Magic: The Gathering, or Cardfight Vanguard deck? Put your skills to the ultimate test, dueling or battling against your fellow con-goers for bragging rights, and some nifty prizes.
We will be using the following rules for each respective tournament:
- Cardfight Vanguard will be Clan fight format and will respect all current bans and restrictions. A list of these can be found here: List of Banned, Restricted and Limited Cards.
- Yu-Gi-Oh will be Advanced format and uphold the banned list available on the Yu-Gi-Oh website, see Forbidden & Limited for more details.
- Pokémon will be Standard format. Only cards from the Primal Clash set and newer will be allowed. Information on these sets are available on the Pokémon website.
- Magic: The Gathering will be following the Standard format. This means that only cards from Battle For Zendikar or a more recent set will be allowed. Note that if you have cards from before Battle For Zendikar you can still use them as long as the card was reprinted in one of the sets which are legal. To check if a card was reprinted or not a good resource to use is The Gatherer. There will be an active standard ban list. The cards that will be banned are Emrakul, the Promised End, Smuggler's Copter, and Reflector Mage. For any further details on the format or which sets are allowed, please refer to the official list.
Special thanks to Jake's Cards and Games for running the Setsucon 2017 Card Gaming Tournaments!
Cosplay and Masquerade
Got more questions? Feel free to contact the Cosplay Coordinator.
Impress our Setsucon judges with your best cosplay! Contestants will have a private judging session during the day. Following that, they have the opportunity to show off their costume on stage during the Masquerade. Judging is based on multiple skill levels, so everyone can enter!
As one of our biggest events, the Masquerade is perfect for con-goers who want to show off their costumes and creativity (individually or as a group). Remember, skits must be anime, manga, or Japanese culture related. Following the performances we get the crowd involved with the fun. We will select random members from the audience to improvise scenes thought up on the spot.
Do you love reading manga? Do you want a place to relax and to surround yourself with volumes of great stories? Setsucon invites all attendees to take a break and enjoy our extensive manga library! We have over 500 volumes to choose from– both the popular and the obscure.
Panels are events run by enthusiasts in a certain topic. The content varies every year, but generally speaking you can look forward to in-depth discussions on anime, manga, Japanese culture and history, Japanese pop culture and voice actors. This also includes some live events, normally martial arts demonstrations and how-to-draw workshops.
Whimsical, topical, comical, and historical; the moving pictures from Japan have shaped culture and arts for decades. Come join us for screenings of television series, OVA's, and movies covering a variety of genres. The Programming Committee of Setsucon strives to provide an enjoyable experience with exciting new productions, beloved classics, and even obscure titles from the depths of anime and film.
If you have any suggestions or recommendations for specific titles, please send a message to the Viewings Coordinator. Please remember that Setsucon only airs titles that are officially and actively licensed in the United States of America. As such, we will not show any fan-subs, fan-dubs, or other unlicensed products.
