“What makes you a hero?” A man possessing power and greed like this universe has never seen. A woman who wants to use it to reap her vengeance on a world that betrayed her. Who will rise up to stop them? Are there any among us who possess the determination necessary? Will that resilience be enough, or might the virtuous lack the power even if they possess the spirit? Even the most humble of mortals might possess the character needed to be a symbol of peace in the face of destruction, but truly one stands above the rest – and some believe she can save the world. “It only takes one small moment – one simple act – to set the ripples of resistance in motion. To show that even if we might go down… we won’t go down without a fight.” The Anime Human Chess Match 2019 will feature new characters, storytelling, and a whole host of new fighters and scenes to inspire, empower, and tell the story of heroes and villains alike. Expect action, drama, and of course, fighting – your favorite characters are brought together in a climactic battle in the fight of the century! Join us this year at METROCON 2019 to see a brand new kind of Anime Human Chess Match – driven by powerful story and characters like you’ve never seen them!
Our Main Events room at METROCON is around 100,000 square feet of stadium lights and sound, and hosts our headlining shows like the Anime Human Chess Match, the Masquerade, a variety of concerts and our nightly rave, our Costume and AMV Contests, and more.
