Youmacon took over Downtown Detroit this past weekend, Michigan’s largest anime convention, featuring interactive events, guest panels, and live performances. Comic Con goers dressed as their favorite cosplay characters and flooded into the Renaissance Center and TCF Center to celebrate Japanese popular culture. Youmacon incorporated multiple themes throughout the event, including internet culture, Japanese artwork and comics, Video Games, and Anime. 

Re-live the excitement from Youmacon in these snaps from local attendees!
