Just got the message on my facebook inbox...

Due to many reasons this will be the last year JCC runs, unless someone else take over, we are sorry to see it shut down but we feel that there are way to many anime convention going on at the moment.

We would like to thank all the people that helped a small dream into a reality and a special big thank you to all you guys that have supported us. A big warm hearted hug to all of you.

We will return next year to run our Japanese Music venue as promised, we will give more details early in 2010 but for now we can say that we will have 6-8 Japanese bands flying over to play a live gig at the Assembly Rooms late next year.




Love n hugs to you all.



Its so sad T^T, this will be the first time and last that i will go. Its such a shame...Whats everyone else thinking???
T^T

i went to chibicon last year aswell and think its such a shame to let it go so soon! personally i don't think theres enough anime conventions! especially nearby! and the prices are good!
on the brighter side a j-concert would be quite good. but still :/

Awww no!!

For me JCulture Con was turning out to be one of the best things Derby had to offer (what with there being no anime conventions nearby! Sad)

this is such a shame, fingers crossed the tables turn and JC-Con continues...

But this is partly why smaller cons 'dry up', you've only got a limited range of attraction, especialty considering there seems to be alot of people fed up with the fandom, what its become and are very willing to give it up.

People also get tierd of the same old things that seem to go on at every con, so going to them become pointless (especialy if your not a teenage fanboi/girl); The market has almost become diluted with so much to the same it almost needs a few complete failures to wake people up and make them think twice about trotting out the same thing con after con.

Especialy with the economy nosediving and people not being able to afford to travel so much, fewer cons are going to happen.

Admittedly, with Chibi/J-CC, there is more of a range, but its still an anime con with small intrest groups tacked on.

true it still a shame if it is the last j-con people who like far from places like london or people from the uk do not get a chance to go to many con thats why when we do go to one it is a merorable moment and

i mean after j-con there is one in telford but that is not until february and then it is may

Let me rephrase, what i wanted to say was more japanese culture cons, as japanese animations fall under this category.
alot of what you said is true, even though its quite unfortunate to see this happening.. I have been going to conventions and expos for some time now but still consider myself a "newbie" but have realised the japanese part of them always seem to be overpowered by the sci fi side. Its true con after con the same routine is present ...afew stalls to look at, same cosplay contests..being the highlight of each ...BUT even though its the same in that sense...the people that go to them differ from place to place, having the chance to meet new people at each.

Having small cons span all aver the country gives a chance for the people that find it difficult to travel to the larger more better publicized ones, to travel to ones closer to home. If smaller cons were better advertised and newer ideas thrown in to attract a greater number of people, these smaller cons wouldn't be dying out. There are alot of anime fans in the UK..and as you say many 'hyperactive teenage ones" ^_^ and having 3-4 mains ones every year doesnt do the J-culture justice. organisers need to throw in new ideas..even research why the ones in japan are so successful..that way..we can bring back the smaller ones near where we live. Anime in the uk is quite a large community and as said ..with better communication happening around the uk to advertise these smaller ones, im sure they would survive!

In all honesty, it would seem that more and more people are becoming interested in Japanese culture as well as anime and manga, suggesting that JCC may continue or perhaps new conventions will appear over time.

Some friends and I held a summer cosplay picnic event at our local park, and ended up bringing 30 people along, many of which were in costume, and that was just down to them being fans of anime/manga and cosplay. It doesn't really look like people are getting bore of 'just anime' conventions. If anything, people are becoming increasingly aware of them and willing to participate. There aren't enough cons in the UK, as a friend of mine from Japan was saying (she's now in our Sixth Form at school, and mentioned how she didn't expect to meet anyone interested in anime/manga, let alone conventions to 'celebrate' them).

Hmm... fingers crossed my first JCC visit won't be my last. Same for a few of the people I know who are coming, too.

Sorry for the double post...

After speaking to Will at JCC he has been convinced to run it again next year, the plan is the Music event will be the saturday and JCC will be the Sunday! (hopefully next year I'll be able to bring Senbonzakura with me I felt incomplete without it!)

I hope Will is going to post somewhere to confirm this too!
