Sign-Ups and Submissions

Below are listed the different contests and events for which you may sign up or submit an application. Some have deadlines, so make sure you read the information and rules very carefully.


Banzai Olympics

This year we are holding the very first Annual Banzai Olympics! Over the summer, you could participate in Olympic events while in cosplay and go for the gold. We will be hosting and filming Maid vs Butler Baseball (July 14th), Greatest Swordfighter Fencing (July 22nd), 5-Man Anime Relay (July 29th), Anime Aquatics Swimming (August 5th), and Anime on Ice (August 12th). Then we will screen the competitions at the 2018 Anime Banzai Convention. Skill is not required; these events are designed more for fun and roleplaying.

For specifics and contact information, please see the Event Page.


Banzai’s Got Talent

Banzai’s Got Talent wants you – yes, you! Do you have a talent you want to share with Anime Banzai? Do you sing? dance? do martial arts? play an instrument? We want to see what talents you have! Make it all the more fun and do it in cosplay as one of your favorite characters! This is not a competition, so no one will judge you.
