The cost to attend the Maid Cafe will be $8 and will include a light dessert, a beverage, and entertainment. Space is limited, so attendees are encouraged to line up early to secure a reservation.
ULTRA SUPER HAPPY ENVELOPE PRIZE GAME!!!--- Sunday 3pm - 5pm
Want a good reason to stay for Sunday at Shuto con? How about the Ultra Super Happy Envelope Prize Game! This year we have really made the grand prize round super awesome. If you never been to the Ultra Super Happy Envelope Prize Game this is how it works.
Tickets are given at the event entrance. VIP badge holders get 2 tickets. We will call contestants up on stage by random ticket numbers. Once on stage we will have 30 envelopes with prizes, all numbered 1-30. The contestant picks a number and gets the prize in the envelope. Once the envelope has been picked it is out of play till the next round. There will be 2 rounds with a final round following round 2. During rounds one and two, there will be 5 envelopes containing passes to the Final round. These passes will be divided between rounds one and two with 2 passes in round 1 and 3 passes in round 2. Those contestants who select these envelopes go on to the final round for the grand prizes. The order of tickets found will be the order the contestants pick in the final round. The Final round will have 5 envelops of best prizes. One envelope will contain the grand prize.
Ok so you might say whats so awesome about the prizes this year? We have all our donated prizes from FUNimation and our friends in our artist alley/dealer room, as well as some sweet added prizes to our grand prizes. This years Grand Prizes are as follows.
5: 1 VIP badge of your choice (Random Battle Con 2015 or Shuto con 2016)

Shuto Con Pokemon Tournament --- Saturday 10am -3pm, Finals 6pm-8pm
Attention Pokemon Trainers! There have been so many participants in recent years that we have had to restructure our Pokemon challenge. This year’s Shuto Con Pokemon challenge has been transformed into a traditional tournament format! Don’t fear though, the Interactive Pokemon battling of past years will be back better than ever before!
Using the new Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire games, trainers will take part in bring-6-choose-3 1v1 flat battles. The tournament will be run in a Swiss format, meaning that everyone will get to battle in every round of the tournament until the top cut of trainers is taken. The top cut will then compete in a classic elimination tournament to determine the 2015 champion of Shuto Con! More information, official rules, and times will be posted to our Facebook page, Program Guide, and/or on our Forum soon!
