Welcome to Akumakon

Akumakon is an Anime, Manga and Japanese Culture event that happens in, NUI Galway. Being one of the biggest events like this in the West of Ireland, we aim to provide a fun-filled weekend for our attendees every January. Events we hold include cosplay events, video game tournaments, Japanese culture events, nerd culture-related events, a pub quiz, special guests, a trade hall and performances from many talented people. In 2016, Akumakon experienced its most successful year to date. We were privileged to welcome over 950 attendees through our doors and raised almost €2,800 for charities.

Last year, Akumakon was honored to have a legend from the east, the one and only Ryō Horikawa, our always stylish and snazzy Leon Chiro and Jessica Armanetti and finally the extremely skilled and talented Jād Saxton. Together along with everyone of us on the committee this year, we hope that we brought you an Akumakon weekend that no one will ever forget!! See you again in January 2017!!!

Ryo, Jad, Leon, Jessica
