One of the University of Ulster's most impressive features is 1000 person capacity sport's hall turned dealer's area. Dealers will be invited to sell their products in an expansive hall with extra spacing for each dealer. Provided to attendees will be a 120 seater "Animecation" Suite, where many Japanese and anime themed classes, debates, lectures and panels will take place.

In addition to our highly popular "pure" anime events, TD06 will also offer large scale card gaming and video gaming events and facilities running officially sanctioned tournaments, freeplay and demonstrations held throughout. Officially sanctioned tournaments include Full Metal Alchemist, Yu-Gi-Oh and Magic: The Gathering, in addition to 4 large scale projected video gaming screens and 9 addition television units.


Tomo-Dachi Special Events
Tomo-Dachi Special events include the first annual Anime Battle of the Bands – where local musical talents are pitted against each other in a fierce anime cover battle to the death (just kidding, near death) with the winners walking away with a substantial prize. Friday night is set to be cosy night together, with a special question and answer sessions, alongside traditional Irish music and lots of chill out events and activities. TD06 also offers all attendees free to access broadband Internet for the entire weekend in the University of Ulster 's modern I.T. Suites.

Artistically, Tomo-Dachi has it covered with the Tokyopop's Rising Stars of Manga competition winners and TokyoPop itself overseeing our Artist's Gallery, Japanese Kanji Calligraphy, Japanese Language lessons and a 600 title strong Manga, Anime and Japanese culture library.

Jonathan Clements will be providing two lectures at Tomo-Dachi, although unfinalised, these are thought to be, "The History of Anime" and "The Revolution of Digital Animation in Anime". On Saturday night he will also adorn us with his comedy talents with his "What Stupid People Say About Anime".

Other events include many Cosplay related activities such as Cosplay Theatre, Cosplay Chess and Cosplay Catwalk.


Cosplay
Cosplayers will feel right at home at Tomo-Dachi with a number of events and activities set aside just for them aside from the obvious photo opportunities being the centre of attention.

The first Cosplay Catwalk to grace the Emerald Isles – show off your costume in style and lets our guest panel be the judges of who has the greatest Cosplay costume of Tomo-Dachi 2006!

Cosplay Theatre is your chance to become the character of your Cosplay. Left to the toilets and halls of other conventions, at Tomo-Dachi take centre stage as your favourite Cosplay character and re-enact their greatest triumphs or re-write in the live action version of fan-fiction!

Prizes will be given for the greatest comedies, actions and dramas that you guys can pull off!

GUESTS
Tomo-Dachi will be hosting a large gathering of guests from the various areas of the anime and manga industry.

Guest of Honour, Ms Tiffany Grant
In her first ever European Convention appearance, Ms Grant will adorn the Emerald Isle with her presence, and she invites anime fans from across the UK to join her!

Ms Grant became most famous (or infamous) for her role as Asuka in ADV Film's Neon Genesis Evangelion, since and before then she has lent her talented voice to many, various anime acting roles. Being one of the most respected anime voice actors in the world, Ms Grant will talk to everyone, sign almost anything and give you a unique insight into the world of creating Anime for the Western market.

Jonathan Clements
Arguably the greatest anime academia in the UK, he has become most well known for co-writing the anime encyclopaedia and his monthly articles in Neo Magazine and Newtype USA . However, he has adorned his skills to many other professions including commentating in numerous Manga Entertainment titles, aswell as translation countless interviews, titles and manga, voice acting and directing and more recently the face and voice of anime related interviews on television and radio.

Rising Stars of Manga
The UK hosted its first ever Rising Stars of Manga competition, run by Tokyopop, a brother to its US version - now this is your chance to meet them!
