This three-day convention will be a celebration of Japanese animation, manga, and culture. Activities will include multiple panels and workshops, a dance, a masquerade cosplay contest, a consuite, video game tournaments, anime screenings, a dealer's room, and an artists alley. The convention plans to book voice actor guests of honor to do panels and provide more entertainment for attendees.

The convention's venue, The Lodge Hotel, brings a distinct fantasy feel to the event. The Lodge's Victorian castle theme creates a majestic atmosphere for convention attendees where big, poofy dresses will fit in well right next to maids and butlers many original steampunk characters will fit in especially well.
