History of gaming chair Originally announced as "Otakucon", the convention started going by "OtakuCon Miami Beach" several months before the first convention in Miami, Florida. Otakon staff has reported that they had ordered a cease-and-desist, but the convention chairman, Manny Camacho, had been reported as saying that the name was simply changed to avoid confusion. When the St. Louis event was announced as the second convention, it was announced under the name "Kunicon".
Following the first convention in Miami, the staff cited an attendance of 5,000 people, which precisely matched their pre-con estimate. However, pictures taken by a fan photographer was used as evidence that numbers claimed by Kunicon were inflated.
Kunicon continued to plan events for San Diego, St. Louis, Atlanta, and Denver. However, San Diego was quickly canceled and the next convention was held in St. Louis in March 2005. The fourth and final Kunicon was held in Denver in June 2005, but went $30,000 over budget.
The controversy came to an end when Emanuel "Manny" Camacho, the Kunicon chairman, announced on his LiveJournal that he was unable to contact Subarashii Nation and he could not see how the next convention, Kunicon Miami in December 2005, could take place. He also stated that the staff and employees of the convention have not been paid for their work.
