Information:
Although we've been operating as an age restricted convention for the past four years, we still frequently get asked "Why are you an 18 & older convention? It sounds like a hentai convention." The simple answer is this: we're recreating the atmosphere of an old-school anime convention when convention attendees were mostly made up of college students. It's not a secret that when Ushicon went on hiatus in 2006, we couldn't reconcile our core values of respecting content creators with the attitudes from the growing attendee population of younger generations. It's fantastic that anime is getting more popular by the day, but the all-ages show at Ushicon 5 simply wasn't the convention we set out to make back in 2002. When we returned in 2011, we implemented our 18 & older policy to promote specific values in our celebration of anime: maturity and respect.
