Voice Actor Guest Announcement: Erica Schroeder


Today we welcome voice actress Erica Schroeder to our guest lineup for Yushi-Con! Erica Schroeder’s appearance at Yushi-Con takes place shortly after the premiere of FLCL:Alternative in late September on Adult Swim, where she takes on a character role in the show with her strong, unmistakable vocals. Her events in Yushi-Con are scheduled to take place between the hours of 12 p.m. and 5 p.m. on the day of the show, October 13 at East Stroudsburg University.


“It is with great fanfare that I announce Erica Schroeder, a prominent voice actress of the northeast convention circuit, will be one of our guests of honor at this year’s Yushi-Con. We consider her appearance to play a strong part of our resurgence in the convention circuit after a nearly 3 year hiatus, and we are excited to have her be a part of our October 13 show,” states Patricia McGee, Convention Chair of Yushi-Con. “Her performances of many beloved fan-favorite characters in Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokemon, One Piece, and more will surely excite an already hyped audience! We are also psyched to hear her character vocals in the new FLCL: Alternative late September,” Patricia concludes.


“I am thrilled to visit East Stroudsburg this October and see my fans once again,” states Erica Schroeder, “I also extend my thanks to Yushi-Con for inviting me to the convention as a guest of honor, I will be hosting a meet and greet, and a panel presentation that many of the attendees will not want to miss out on,” Erica concludes.

Yushi-Con Nominated for Gold Badge Endorsement by Panelists United!

We have been awarded a Gold Badge endorsement by the group Panelists United.

Panelists United is an association of panelists that seeks to further the interests of panelists as a group on the convention circuit. Ensuring that the relationships between panelists and staffers stays well and strong, and providing insight to convention staffers as to how their policy can become more efficient.


Here is the following statement from the convention chair:


“Thank you for your endorsement! I highly appreciate that my accommodations for panelists fit your approval! We always make panelists and presenters our priority so it is really special to us that it is recognized. While we have received this post-humorously to our last year of Yushi-Con in 2015, and have not hosted an event since then, I am very happy to say that upon starting operations back up this year for October 2018 we will be making it better and more structured than our two years combined!” – Pat McGee
