Hey guys, as many of you know, here in Chicago there is an annual Anime and Game Convention that I've been going to for the past 7 years. 2012 will be a bit different, however, as I think the Convention would be a great way for many members of the site to finally meet in person!
Now having said that, I'd like to give a little bit of information on Anime Central or "ACEN" as it's called:
The Convention is taking place this year from Friday, April 27th to Sunday, April 29th.
The Convention takes place at the Rosemont Convention Center near Chicago's O'Hare International Airport.
Acen is known for it's extensive list of special guests from the Anime and Videogame industry, including Voice Actors and Artists.
Acen hosts a massive Market known as the "Dealer's Room" which specializes in Japanese imports of anime, manga, videogames, models, figures, costumes, swords, etc.
Acen has a massive arcade room, with numerous tournaments, including Brawl Tourneys.
The prices for registration are as follows:
September 16th – December 15th = $48
December 16th – March 15th = $53
March 16th – April 15th = $60 Will Call Only! (At the Con ONLY)
Needless to say, the sooner you register, the cheaper it will be. An ACEN ID badge will be mailed to you with a lanyard to wear. If you do decide to go, I HIGHLY recommend you do not wait until March 16th to register, not only because of the cost, but because you will also have to wait in a VERY LONG LINE!
You can visit the ACEN website here.
So yeah, that's the info for now. If you guys have any questions, post them here and I'll do my best to answer them!
