  • What is Heroic?
    Heroic is a fan based pop culture convention produced locally by the Oklahoma Society for Culture Appreciation. The event is currently on hiatus until further notice.
  • What is Tokyo, OK?
    Tokyo, OK (TOK) is a fan-based convention with a focus on Japanese Anime, Culture, and Pop Culture. With a mission of "Education and Building Community Through Entertainment", Tokyo, OK proves that education does not have to come from traditional sources and that even two vastly different world views can find common ground. From humble beginnings in 2008 as a parking lot block party and despite many road blocks, Tokyo, OK has grown each year. Tokyo, OK hosts over 300 hours of programming for Anime, Gaming (Console, Video and Tabletop), Japanese and Oklahoma Culture, Art, Writing, Music, Shopping (with vendors, artists and exhibitors from all of the country) and much more! Join us for a full weekend of nonstop fun!
  • Line Etiquette
    Lines are an awesome way to meet new people! Keeping your group together and making sure lines do not block entrances or exits, keeping a gap in front of the door, and refraining from “saving spaces” is the best way to keep lines moving and other guests happy. (A not so fun way to meet new people is to cut in line or jump; you’ll get to hang out with people all the way at the end!) Please be mindful of making spaces where others may need to pass through. Don't worry, we'll make sure you get where you need to go!
  • Handouts & Solicitation
    OS4CA does not allow the distribution of any items—including flyers, stickers, cards, or any promotional item—in any area inside or immediately outside event spaces or hotels unless: The item is distributed from a vendor, artist or exhibitor at a booth in the Exhibit Halls. The item is approved for placement on the Freebie Section at the Information Desk. No retail sales or solicitation of services are allowed anywhere in OS4CA event spaces unless you purchased or were allocated an Exhibitor, Vendor or Artist space. This includes common areas such as lobbies, program rooms, hotel lobbies and any venue featuring official events.
  • Food & Drink
    Outside food or beverages are permitted in certain event spaces. Please be curtious, and throw any trash away. Water stations have been provided at many of our event locations, so we encourage all guests to pick up an official Event water bottle at our Merch Booth, or bring their own bottle with a secure lid, made of a material other than glass (stainless steel and BPA-free plastic are great choices). Reminder for Tokyo, OK: It occurs in one of the hottest months of the year, so we encourage all attendees to drink plenty of water (no … Ramune does not count) to stay hydrated!

  • Fan Etiquette
    Fan Etiquette is how we ask you to act toward Guests and other attendees. Guests are people too. Outside of their job, what you admire them for, they have lives, problems, and emotions just like everyone else. Treat them calmly and courteously. During events like Tokyo, OK, they have rigors schedules to keep and need time off just like we do. If you see a guest in the hall, do not glomp or swarm them. If a guest has time, he or she will spend time with you. Do not be offended if they do not have time to talk. He or she may be on a schedule or needing a break. There will be other opportunities to talk to them. If a guest or surrounding staff member ask you to wrap up an interaction, please understand it is for the benefit of everyone, be they need to be at a signing, their table, a panel, or their bed. Second, while at the convention, observe the Golden Rule … treat others as you would wish to be treated. For more information, please see the OS4CA Code of Conduct.
  • Autograph Sessions & Rules
    We cannot guarantee that you receive an autograph. Each autograph session has a limited amount of time which we try to get as many people autographs as possible. We offer multiple signing sessions when we can. So that the most people can meet and get the signature of their favorite personality or performer, we have set these rules for all of our autograph sessions. OS4CA cannot guarantee that you will receive an autograph. Signatures are first come first served. Do Not Cut In Line. You cannot “Hold” a position in line for someone else. Guests are stationed in small groups and each group has their own line. This is to ensure that the most people can get Autographs. Once you have the autograph(s) of one group, you will need to return to the back of the line to obtain signatures from one of the other groups. Signatures are limited to one item per person per Guest. POP! Figurines are not eligible for the free signing. If you would like a POP! Figurine signed, please visit your desired guest at their table. You are limited to one (1) minute with each Guest. Ask Permission before taking any photographs of or with a Guest. Do not ask for Recordings or for a Guest to perform your favorite character voice. Many of our guests are hired and paid based on the condition of their voice and they still have to go to work on Monday morning. They may make it look easy, but performing is hard work and can place a strain or damage their vocal cords. Please be courteous to Guests, staff and your fellow attendees. If you have issue with a staff member, please report it to the Info Desk.
  • Can you have _____ come to "x event"?
    Some of the planning for Tokyo, OK, Heroic, and our other events are finished nearly a year ahead of time, including guest invitations. Like you, we have to work within a budget and everyone's schedule. Sometimes not everything aligns. We do pay close attention to your requests and try to bring who we can when we can. If your favorite band or voice actor is not at an event this year, let us know via our Contact Form and we will attempt to invite them in the future. Please do not contact guests yourself. This causes no end of trouble and confusion. If you meet up with someone that you would like to attend an event in the future, give them our web address and ask them to contact us, or, as stated before, let us know through the Contact Form.
