Youmacon 2017 | Nov 3-5

Even if you have no interest in anime, Youma has 24 hour gaming - one huge room for video games and another huge room for board / card / tabletop games. Needless to say I will be spending many many hours in both. Also, can you say hotel party? Because there will be plenty.

(from the Youmacon webiste) "Youmacon is a popular culture event similar to most “Comic Cons”, however instead of focusing on comic books, Youmacon is a celebration of Japanese popular culture and its influence on our own culture over the past few decades. Common themes throughout the event are Anime (Japanese animation), Video Games, Japanese style artwork and comics, and the rising internet culture influenced by all of the above.

Youmacon brings a unique all-ages mix of interactive events, celebrity guest panels, and live musical performances to Downtown Detroit. One of its most popular events, “Live Action Mario Party”, emulates the video game experience – often filling the room to fire code capacity. Players participate in gameshow-like mini-games to help their teams advance and win."
