It may be at a strange hour of the day for international Ultraman fans but wow it’s going to be worth it! Tsuburaya Productions will be holding a free online livestream event “TSUBURAYA CONVENTION 2021 SPECIAL PROGRAM” on December 13th, 2021, starting at 3:30am Eastern Daylight Time / 2:30am Pacific Daylight Time at Ultraman Connection.
The annual event, dubbed “TSUBURAYA CONVENTION” (or TSUBUCON), will feature a grand unveiling of many upcoming projects tied to the Ultraman franchise, exclusively showcasing a lineup of several works that will be released from 2022 onwards; a lineup that represents Tsuburaya’s vision for the future. There will also be exciting guest appearances, so stay tuned for the details which will be announced soon.
TSUBUCON is planned to be held once every two years, with the second event planned to be held this Fall. However, due to the corona pandemic it was decided to postpone the live in-person event. Yet precisely because of the times we are in, the studio decided to create a special platform on which to share the future of Tsuburaya Productions with all our fans, and so the entire company joined together to begin making this idea a reality.
This year’s “TSUBURAYA CONVENTION 2021 SPECIAL PROGRAM” will be available as an online livestream event for you to enjoy over on the ULTRAMAN CONNECTION platform. If you are already registered with Ultraman Connection, you will be receiving an email with all the details for viewing the show.

We look forward to seeing you there!
TSUBURAYA CONVENTION (TSUBUCON) Details
At the 2019 event, each facility of the Tokyo Dome City was repurposed into stages for the first TSUBUCON. Awash in enthusiasm and excitement, the largest celebration in Tsuburaya history ended on a high note with the passion of fans, cast members, characters, and staff members coming together as one.
This is a kind of special event for fans to connect with the cast and staff. With many fan attendees, the events feature a jam-packed program of stage performances, concerts, talk shows, celebrations, and merch exhibitions. The program is divided into the themes “Story”, “Greetings”, “Culture”, and “Collections” to showcase the timeline of Tsuburaya’s past, present, and future.
