As a new year rolls around we have plenty of more members. With this, I hope that ACen wont be a flop on Crunchyroll as it was last year.

Well, for those of you who don't know, ACen, short for Anime Central, is a convention held every year at Rosemont, Illinois. Its one of the fastest growing conventions and the 5th largest in the US. It runs 24/7 for three days (05/16 - 05/18) with just a bunch of anime/manga things. Last year, artists preform such as High and Mighty Color and this year HALCALI is performing. Theres a ball, bunch of events, many things to buy, etc. Just a whole bunch of things and its an awesome place to be. But, since this is the Midwest convention people from all over the Midwest come here. I was pretty much just wondering if I get to see any of your faces this upcoming May. And if not and you just learned about it, maybe next year.

If anyone is interested on learning more the main site is here: http://www.acen.org/
The reason I'm bringing this up a little in advance is because of the registration time:
* Pre-registration: $45 2/2/08 to 3/15/08
* Express and At-Con Registration: $50.
* Friday-only: $30
* Saturday-only: $30
* Sunday-only: $20

Groups:
10 or more: 5% discount
20 or more: 10% discount

Also, another part I suggest looking at if you are interested is:
http://www.acen.org/index.php?categoryid=48 which lists all of the confirmed exhibitors and industry

Anyway, I know its a little early, but I know I'll be there! I'm really just trying to inform my fellow US Midwesterners as well as Crunchyroll itself. Let me know if you're going to ACen also, and possibly we could arrange a time to all meet up? Anyway, hope this was of interest!

Edit: Doesn't seem anyone cares, but the registration time was moved to April 1st! =)
