Yushi-Con 2018 Post-Con Report & Announcements

We have successfully kicked off the third Yushi-Con on October 13! Another event full of cosplay, art, guests, video games, board games, panels, and more! We thank all of the attendees, dealers, panelists, and presenters for coming up and showing their support for us and our return to the convention circuit! We are currently looking for a new venue to support our next event, as East Stroudsburg University can no longer accommodate for the scale and demand of our events. We hope to make an announcement on that before the new year rolls over on what we will be doing for our fourth event! Stay tuned with us!

Other Announcements:

  • We have also listened to the artists and dealers at Yushi-Con, and we will be doing a complete overhaul of our dealers process and policies to become more effective than ever! We have put together all of your suggestions in a bullet-point format and will be making many of your suggestions a part of this new overhaul for our next event! Stay tuned for developments on that as well!
  • We will also be putting together a general Yushi-Con 2018 convention feedback survey! Look forward to that next week and let us know what you enjoyed most at Yushi-Con this year, and what suggestions you would have for us for future events!
  • We will also begin hosting Funimation screenings at Sango Kura, a Japanese eatery close to our 2018 venue that serves the best sushi in the Poconos! They will soon be serving sake from their very own on-site sake brewery! Follow us to get more information as the screening schedule is arranged!

Other FAQs:

What if I cannot find my PayPal receipt?

You can also identity yourself with the name or email that is under the PayPal purchase, confirming with your ID most preferably. It will just make the registration process slower so that is why we highly recommend bringing your receipt with you. It is also helpful to check your email clutter and spam to see if it has ended up in there.

How can I find staff?

Yushi-Con staff can be identified by their Yushi-Con staff t-shirts, or will be wearing a Yushi-Con Staff Button.

What if I have other questions that are not specified here?

Any other questions can be sent directly to Patricia at esuyushicon@gmail.com

Yushi-Con Welcomes Prominent Voice Actor & Director Lisa Ortiz

Yushi-Con welcomes acclaimed voice actor and director of Pokemon Sun and Moon animated series, Lisa Ortiz to their guest lineup for their anime and gaming convention on October 13, hosted at East Stroudsburg in the Science and Technology Building of East Stroudsburg University. Lisa’s events in Yushi-Con are scheduled to take place between the hours of 12 p.m. and 5 p.m.

“It is a pleasure to announce Lisa Ortiz, a prominent voice actor and director of the northeast coast industry, she will be one of our guests of honor at this year’s Yushi-Con. We are psyched to have the director of Pokemon Sun and Moon on board, and are looking forward to having her included in our high-value lineup of our October 13 show,” states Patricia McGee, convention chair of Yushi-Con. “Her performances of countless fan-favorites in Sonic the Hedgehog, One Piece, Yu-Gi-Oh, Slayers, and more will surely excite us and our audience!” Patricia concludes.

Yushi-Con is a multi-genre anime and gaming convention taking place at East Stroudsburg, in the northeastern Pennsylvania region. Previously hosted by East Stroudsburg University’s Anime Club with support from the ESU Game Society, and currently hosted independently by student alumni and community members, Yushi-Con has been put together in the hopes of bringing not only the anime fandom but people from all fandom together in the northeastern Pennsylvania and Greater New York area.

“I am so excited to be appearing at Yushi-Con this October as a guest of honor!” states Lisa Ortiz, “I am looking forward to meeting all of my East Stroudsburg fans on the convention floor, and I hope you’ll make it out so we can chat more at my panels!” Lisa continued, “Special thanks to Yushi-Con for making this all possible! Can’t wait to see you there, it’s going to be a great time!” Lisa concluded.

Yushi-Con’s goal is to bring the animation, gaming, and geek industry-at-large to the Monroe County and Poconos area. They bring high-value industry guests and presenters from all over the tri-state area, such as Mike Pollock, the voice of Dr. Eggman from Sonic the Hedgehog. Yushi-Con has a vision to breathe a blossoming creative presence into the Poconos and Greater New York area, and give the locals a chance to network with other passionate animation and gaming fans and creators alike.

This year, Yushi-Con will be hosted at the Science and Technology Building at East Stroudsburg University, in East Stroudsburg, PA on October 13. It will be a full-day event with programming and presentations for all hours!
