T-MODE 2015 :: April 3-5, 2015 :: Hilton Rockville :: Rockville, MD

Introducing T-MODE T-Meets!

T-Meets Logo

We couldn’t go a whole year without seeing our fans, so we’ve brainstormed an awesome solution: T-MODE T-Meets!

T-MODE T-Meets are small, monthly gatherings around the DC Metro area. We’re talking anime movie screenings, a trip to the zoo or even a haunted house! T-Meets are a fun way for you to enjoy an activity with friends and socialize with people sharing similar interests. Dates, times, locations and related costs of each T-Meets event will be announced in advance. There may also be opportunities to vote on upcoming T-Meets and to participate in T-Meets giveaways.

Keep your eyes peeled for our first T-Meets event in February! For more information, follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

T-MODE 2014 Postponed

Hi everyone. I’m sad to report that T-MODE 2014 is postponed. Unfortunately, we were unable to finalize our hotel contract in time for our 2014 convention. Instead of moving forward and trying to rush the convention together in a few months, I thought it best to use this time to start planning for T-MODE 2015. We will announce and start promoting our 2015 event once the date and location have been finalized.

In the meantime, we have some fantastic things in the works for 2014! Come on, you didn’t think we were going to sit quietly for a whole year, did you? Look out for the first announcement of what we have planned in the next few weeks. We’re very excited about it and we think you will be, too.

Be sure to come join us on Facebook and Twitter. You’ll find the latest updates and random T-MODE fun while we tidy up the website and get things ready for T-MODE 2015. This is going to be a phenomenal year, and I look forward to sharing it with all of you!

T-MODE 2013 Event: Janken Wars


Janken Wars is an interactive game where players battle each other for crystals. Battles are won or lost by Jan- Ken- Pon (Rock-Paper-Scissors). The individual or team with the most crystals by the end of the convention earns the title of Janken Champion.

This is a game designed to inspire interaction with others and making new friends. Cosplay is encouraged, and battling in character as your cosplay makes the game even more fun.
