Darkstalkers Combination Cup 5
The biggest Vampire event of the year, the DCC, has been scheduled for October 10th. There will be singles contests for both Vampire Hunter and Vampire Savior. Usually they have a VS 5on5 the night before, too.
Leading up to the main event will be four preliminary contests for the Chubu, Tohoku, Kansai and Kanto areas (no Kyushu this year.) Winners get a seed that lets them skip the first round.
Nagoya Monogatari 7
This year's Nagoya Stories tournament is happening this Sunday at Urban Square Osu. After the finals the winning team will fight amongst themselves to determine the DCC seed winner. There will be a singles event the night before at Shiogama Space Shuttle.

Both of these events are going to be broadcast live:
UPDATE 7/18: You can watch the stream archive here: winners' bracket, losers' bracket and grand finals. There are some issues with that first link — sound cuts out, Gama no Abura not really familiar with VS, missing bottom-half semis — but things pick up in the losers' bracket. Haitani, Dara and Oboro teaming up set up lots of great Kansai vs. Kanto cards.
