Not open for further replies.


Description: Ohayocon is a three-day anime convention typically held during January in Columbus, Ohio, at the Hyatt Regency Columbus and the Greater Columbus Convention Center. Ohayocon's name is derived from the similarity between "Ohio", the convention's location, and Ohayou (おはよう), which means "good morning" in Japanese. The convention typically offers an anime music contest, an artists' alley, concerts, costume contests, a dealers' room, a formal ball, a masquerade, musical events, panel discussions, a rave, and more.

I've only been to this event twice. The general vibe is the same as most cons I've been to. Cosplayers in the halls, a giant dealers hall, and plenty of panels to attend.
Guests this year include Rob Mungle and John Swasey who did vocal work for Halo Legends with Rob as 'Dutch' in 'The Babysitter' and John as 'SGT. Hauser' in 'Homecoming'. Other Guests include Kent Williams who was the voice of 'Surge' (yes that's spelled correctly) in 'Red vs Blue'

Sadly, because of C-19 restrictions and general complications, the Rave and Formal Ball have been canceled.

It's a con I've been meaning to get back to one of these years, but sadly I cannot attend it this year. I can vouch that it always seems to fly under the radar in terms big name conventions, but it does have a really good attendance of 10,000+ with a lot of stuff to see and do in a multi level building. Even has an indoor food court, how often do you see that?
