Anime Convention

March 11-13, 2016
Overland Park Convention Center

Naka-Kon is an Overland Park, Kansas based anime convention. We celebrate Japanese animation and the influence anime has had in the Midwest and around the globe by educating people from all walks of life in many diverse facets of popular and traditional Japanese culture.

Each year, Naka-Kon invites an array of voice actors and manga artists who host a variety of panels and events designed to educate and entertain both current anime enthusiasts and those who wish to learn more about the American otaku subculture. We also feature exciting panels by attendees and are introducing an interactive story event. Don't miss a moment of the fun!
