official_ushiko_head_model_by_ushicon-d63fy9fCalling all artists! Want to win a guaranteed and FREE and GUARANTEED spot in the Artist Alley at Ushicon 2018? We are looking for talented artists to create their own rendition of our mascot, Ushiko. Please send your submissions to art@ushicon.com. Due to a low number of submissions, the deadline has been extended to March 31, 2017.

Since our Artist Alley is filled through a lottery, this is a great deal! Winning the contest means that you get to bypass the lottery completely and ensure your spot in the Artist Alley.

Contest Rules:


2017 Events Schedule

Anime Pub Trivia

Throw back a few cold ones and show off just how great a fan you are.  Yeah, you don’t live in your mom’s basement like those nerds on the red team, but you still know more about anime than them, because that’s just how awesome you are.  This event will take place on Saturday night, so don’t miss it!

Guest Panels

Wataru Yoshizumi, Dawn M. Bennett, and Morgan Berry will be with us all weekend to talk about manga, anime, voice acting, and the anime industry – probably even other stuff as well!  And don’t forget to bring your favorite items for them to autograph!

Arcade

Ushicon’s Arcade is brimming with electronic diversions both new and retro! Tournaments include Virtual On (Saturn), SF5 (PC), Samurai Shodown 2 (Neo Geo), Mario Kart 8 (WiiU) and Super Smash Bros 4 (WiiU)! Peruse a plethora of pixelated passtimes with the choice of 15 console, PC, and classic MAC setups!

Tabletop Gaming

Board games of all kinds will be available in our Tabletop Gaming room.  Come play games like Boss Monster, where you build a dungeon and try to kill as many heroes as possible.  Or you could play classics like Carcassonne, Fluxx, and Small World.  Want something quick and easy to learn?  Try Cards Against Humanity, Tsuro, or Ascension!  A full list of games will be available in our Guidebook app.

Video Theaters

Celebrating anime the best way we know how – by watching way too much! Ranging from classics to the best new shows of the year, we’ll have great things to see all weekend long. Stop by to reminisce about old favorites, or check out that new show you’ve been meaning to catch.

Ushiko’s Maid Cafe

Now new and improved this year!  We’re still working on all of the details, but we know you’ll love it.  Check back here for more info as we get closer to the con.  Or just let yourself be surprised when you arrive!

And more!

I love me some “Log Horizon”, it’s a great show with fun and engaging characters and an interesting narrative. Now that Sentai Filmworks has released the first part, the English dub is available to watch. How is it?
