If the economy's got you down and you think you can't afford to attend any conventions this year, well... think again. Yasumicon 2009 is the answer. South Florida's largest free anime convention is back for a 7th year, July 11th and 12th at FIU University Park Campus in Miami, FL. And still free!

Join us as we welcome back special musical guest: Arm Cannon. That's right, the boys from Buffalo are back! If you missed them last year, you'll definitely want to catch this year's show.

We will be announcing a lot more news in the coming weeks, so join the community or add it to your watch list to stay on top of the latest news, and don't forget to drop by our Forums and check out what's new there.

We'll also be taking the opportunity of announcing a Yasumicon First! Death Note Murder Mystery Theater sponsored by Meazu Crew, an interactive theater experience based on Death Note! Ticket sales for the dinner theater will be available at this event.

We hope to see you there! Plus we'll have a photographer taking shots of cosplayers at the event! So come on out!

Well, we're interested in you as well. As a growing convention we're looking to make our selections better than last year. One of the ways we do this is ask if anyone wants to do a panel at our event. Sound interesting? Well we hope so.

If you have a panel idea, feel free to post it here

Thanks!

Hey guys, just wondering if some of the cosplayers would like to get together for some tea and cake? I'm looking to get cosplayers together because I noticed that there isn't much going on in Miami, and I know there are some great cosplayers out there, and it would be nice to get together, take some pictures, talk cosplay and have fun.

I'm looking to do this before Yasumicon, because Yasumicon takes up some of my free time.

In any case, if this sounds interesting, leave a comment at the forums.

Thanks!

Check out our new do!
Yasumicon 2008//MiamiDEKO

and our new forums:
Yasumicon Forums

We've gone ahead and updated our website! We'll be adding more content to it as months pass. Yasumicon also changed forums! We had a great time at Noated.net but in the coming years we'll need our forum to do even more for you guys, so we now have a new spot for you to jump on and talk about Yasumicon and some other events down the pipeline.

Was that a hint of things to come?

We'll leave that to you.

Meanwhile, enjoy our site and our forums. If you have any question, feel free to reply here or email us at yplanning@gmail.com

Yes it's true.....we're less that 6 months away. Just can't wait.

Hey guys, just wanted to get back into the swing of things. Seems like it was only yesterday when I first made the post about Yasumicon and filling the position as Convention Chairman. I hope all is well and you guys are well into getting into another great year for anime. Just wanted to get out the news.

Yasumicon 2008 is going to be on August 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.

Yeah, I know what you're thinking. 3 days?!?! Yup. Though I will say that August 1st will be our night time event, for preregistration, but we'll have events at night as well as a dinner and dancing. A lot of planning has been done for it, and we hope that you'll come the extra day to get together and have fun!

I know I will. Look forward to more information as well as a revamping of our site to reflect our theme: Miami Vice!

We'll be taking this convention to celebrate the great town we live in as well as expressing what we like about the anime lifestyle.

We hope to see you there. If you have any questions, feel free to post it here or email it to our planning email at yplanning@gmail.com
