Bara no Toshi (Japanese for “City of Roses”), a hard-working group of amazing Anime enthusiasts, are hosting Tyler, Texas’ first ever annual Anime Convention! With the unprecedented growth the Rose Capital has seen over even just the past decade, it’s no wonder the beautiful city is seeing more and more tourist attractions appear in every direction. Bringing a convention of this magnitude to its center is just another reason why Tyler is becoming one of the most popular places to visit in the heart of the piney woods!

She is a rising star in the Anime community and we’re very proud to have her work represent our very first convention.
There are hundreds of anime conventions held across the globe every year and the subculture is one that is much more vast than one may realize. Thousands upon thousands of people are involved in the Anime scene, and after the hard work and dedication of the Bara no Toshi event team, the beginning of an annual convention is finally hitting Tyler! This will undoubtedly grow over the years and this is your chance to become a part of Tyler’s history by attending the very first ever Anime Con held in our beautiful city!
