Youmacon is a go! November 1st – 4th, 2018 In Downtown Detroit Cobo Center & The Renaissance Center. Early September, if you were lucky enough you got your tickets online. Now tickets are reserved to the door only. I've been a few times and Youmacon is probably the best con for anime fans in Metro Detroit. Motor City Comic Con has a little bit for everyone but its not as saturated with hardcore anime fans.
This year, like every year, youmacon has some of the best guest come out from the legendary Mamoru Yokota, Wendee Lee, Ray Chase and tons of others just to name a few. Check out who is showing up at this years con.
Funny Story. Last few years we have had rooms at Youmacon, while on the 44th floor with access to the elevators during the start of the convention seemed smart. It was possibly the most idiotic move I have made. During peak hours of Youmacon, the elevators in the main lobby, are met with hordes of anime cosplayers waiting 30-40 minutes to use the elevator. At some point in time, a few security guards came out to redirect traffic. So we took the stairs ( yes we walked 44 flights of stairs to get back to our room) and by the time we got there we were exhausted. On the journey, we met some cool people on the steps who have become very good friends.
That is all we have for now and we will keep you posted as "we get closer to another episode of youmacon" in Dragon Ball Z narrators voice. See you there!Tweet #youmacon
