Our Mission

Kabochacon is dedicated to celebrating and creating an appreciation for Japanese pop culture though animation, manga, games and other medias. We also cater to other pop culture niches such as American/European shows, games, & comics. Our goal is to bring fans together within a safe and entertaining atmosphere in the Dayton and surrounding area.

Panel Submissions are now Open! Apply here. Remember that our theme for 2016 is music! Panel submissions centered around music (vocaloid, composition, dance, etc.) will be given priority.

Thanks for a great first convention!
