Youmacon 2005

Detroit's { Anime / Manga / Gaming / J-Music } Experience

November 11-13, 2005 / Hilton Detroit/Troy / Troy, Michigan

Metro Detroit's first and only anime con, Youmacon, brings celebrity guests, dealers of Japanese collectibles, masquerade and cosplay contests, and many other exciting con events to the Motor City. Dub fans meet voice actors, gamers compete in tournaments in our 24-hour video gaming rooms and cosplayers have the chance to be a game of shougi. There's something for every Japanese media fan at this fan-run con that's easily accessible for Michiganders as well as con-goers from Windsor or Toledo. It's three days of otaku bliss!
