REGISTRATION NOTE
I just wanted to remind everyone that in order to participate in the tournament you will need to check-in at our tournament desk in the Heritage Court before 11:30AM. And have your WBO account open on your phone if possible!

If you arrive after that, you will not be able to enter the tournament (but are welcome to participate in free play).

Doors open at 10:00AM. This is going to be a massive tournament, which means registration will take some time. So, I would like to kindly ask that everyone planning to play in the tournament arrives as early as possible.



Join us on Saturday, January 19th, 2019 for a Toronto Beyblade Burst Tournament at Anime Shogatsu for the fourth straight year!

Please be sure to arrive ON TIME for this tournament. Registration begins at 10:00AM. We will finish registration at 11:30AM and will begin the tournament shortly thereafter. Thank you!

If you can make it, please hit the blue JOIN TOURNAMENT button at the top of this page! See you all there!



Anime Shogatsu Membership Required
Please note that to enter the convention and gain access to our event, a membership for Anime Shogatsu 2019 is required. Purchase your Anime Shogatsu 2019 membership online here. Memberships are also available at the door (starting at 9AM for $25), but we recommend purchasing online ahead of time.

Kids 10 and under are admitted for free, however they would need to be accompanied by a parent/guardian with a membership purchased.

Because this event is at a convention, the regular WBO entry fee will not apply.



Need-to-Know Information Sheet
Some of this information is covered below, but we will also be handing out the following need-to-know information sheet on the day of the event. It covers key topics related to the organization of this event to ensure everyone is on the same page.

You may read it then, or get a head start right now:




Optional: Sign up for the bracket on Challonge.

We run all of our tournaments using tournament management software called Challonge.

This is optional, but very helpful for us: you can sign up for the bracket on Challonge ahead of time. We encourage anyone planning to play in this tournament to do so because it will:

  • Speed up your registration, which helps us keep things moving quickly for everyone! If you sign up on Challonge, please tell us when you visit the registration desk at the event.
  • Allow you to receive e-mail notifications of your upcoming matches during the event. Please note that the match e-mail notifications do not mean your match is happening at that moment; just that it is available. You will be called by a judge when it is time to play.
  • Allow you to follow along with the tournament bracket throughout the event.
  • Grant you priority access to one of the awesome limited BEYBLADE SHOGATSU 2019 stickers below!

IMPORTANT: Please make your Challonge username the same as your WBO username. If it is taken on Challonge, you can change it within "Your Settings" once you've registered on Challonge.





Event Registration Bonus: Logo Sticker For First 50 Players On the Day of the Event
The first 50 players who already have both WBO and Challonge accounts and register for BEYBLADE SHOGATSU 2019 on the day of the event will receive one of these awesome stickers featuring a special Japanese version of the logo!

I hope you guys will use this to decorate your Beyblade cases like I've done with mine over the years. Smile

After registration if there is any stickers leftover, we will hand them out to members that did not have WBO and/or Challonge accounts.



No Bey? No Prob!
Don't have any Beyblades from this new series? No problem! We would be happy to lend a Beyblade and launcher to you to use for your tournament matches!



Have a BeyStadium? Bring it!
We will be bringing stadiums for this event, but more are always welcome! Any BeyStadium is fine for free play, but BeyStadium Standard Types (pictured below) are particularly appreciated. If you can bring one, please post here to let us know.

Prize Donation by Zankye
With us recently hitting the 100 registered participants plateau, now seems like a good time to announce that originalzankye will once again be providing an incredible donation of Beyblades as prizes for this event! Thank you, Zankye!

Be sure to check out his Youtube Channel.

Some of these prizes will be given to the top 3 winners and some will be given via a random giveaway during the event.

What is Beyblade Burst?
[Image: gnJ23kG.png]
Beyblade Burst is the newest, third generation of Beyblade by TAKARA-TOMY! It launched in 2015 in Japan and Hasbro launched it in Canada in September 2016. If you are not familiar with Beyblade Burst, please take a look at the Beyblade Wiki article covering it, the Beyblade General Forum, and the Beyblade Burst Hasbro Topic for the most up to date information about Hasbro's release of the series internationally.

Hi,

I wanted to confirm if young children can participate in the tournament (ages 6 and 8)? Also, do accompanying parents need to purchase tickets as well?

Thanks.

Yes, all ages are welcome!

As for accompanying parents: I am not 100% sure, but I think that everyone entering the convention will need a ticket (as the ticket is not just for our tournament, but for entry into the convention venue and access to all the other activities happening that day). You should try contacting Anime Shogatsu staff to confirm: http://animeshogatsu.com/contact-us/

Also, if you haven't already please be sure to create accounts for both children and have them click the "Join Tournament" button at the top of the page. It's important information for us to help prepare for the tournament and if we hit 40 confirmed participants they can give us more room at the convention. Thanks!

can i get the artemis and apollo
Do parents have to pay the entry fee too
He said no reservations

Yes it is a convention entry fee, WBO fee is not present, you have to pay to get into the venue

So parents have to pay to?
I don't understand, can we use taraka tomy beys?

and what what be the admission fee for 3 people?
Yes you can use takara tomy beys, you may also use hasbro, but you may not use fakes and you must not mix hasbro and takara beys (example: hasbro layer + hasbro/takara tomy disk + hasbro tip = legal, hasbro layer + hasbro/ takara tomy disk + takara tomy tip = illegal. Same with takara tomy layer + hasbro/takara tomy disks + hasbro tip = illegal. The only parts that are allowed to be mixed are the disks.)

The admission for 3 people would be $60 ($20 X 3 =$60) keep in mind the tournement is technically free since you are not paying to play in the tournement, you are paying to get into the venue. This means that you still get to explore the convention even if you don’t or can’t participate.
I can't seem to find the prices for the new stuff in the link.

Thanks for the clarification, it' my first time, I wouldn't want to screw up

Will Kei be selling at the conservation? If so can we use the Beyblades we purchase in the battles?

Sorry, not for sale as it isn't on my list. That picture is just from the package when I received it ... I kept some stuff for myself of course (including Left αpollos and Right αrtemis).

They're in there! All of the new stuff is in the NEWLY ADDED red box or at the bottom with NEW in red beside it if it's a loose part.

Yes and yes. That's why I posted it here. Smile I sell things so other people who can't order online have the opportunity to get the latest gear.
So cho z beys hope my package comes in soon so i can win
Thanks Kei! Sorry to borrow you for that.
I am taking my son to the tournament. He is very excited. He was confused as to why in the rules it said that battles start with "3,2,1 Go Shoot!" instead of "3,2,1 Let it Rip!" like in the shows... Anyone know why?
