Anime Expo Youth Protection Problems

Over on ANN there's a breakdown and specifics on the Youth Protection Program heading to AX this year. We wrote about our dismay of the program here. Including not fully revealed costs for those having to get background checks is the lack of updates on honor guests for AX, something that usually gets revealed by now.

The whole Youth Protection Program comes strangely after the head of the SPJA, the organization behind AX. stepped down with rumors that he was pushed out.

Over on Twitter you can see the dismay from many former vendors and guests with the new program.

In other words this could be leading to a very unattended by vendors and guests AX this year with the fans paying the price.
