It is almost that time of year once again when Anime Central will be gracing the Chicago-land area with its wonderful presence.

I got to meet a couple other CR users there last year, so I was wondering how many more of them I will hopefully get a chance to meet this year.

If you are going to attend this year, are you going to be cosplaying, paneling, or shopping? Or all of the above? Something else?

Or if you are on the fence about going, what is stopping you from partaking in this joyous occasion?

Let everyone know if you will be heading to the beautiful city of Rosemont, IL in the middle of May and maybe we can have a meet up. I would love to get a big group picture of the CR users that are going to be there.

Hope to see you there!

I'm going... I'll have to skip two days of college classes though *rebel yell*
It'll be my second time at ACEN and my second time back in the chicago area.
Bringin' back the nostalgia! (I lived in Waukegan for 3-4 years)

I'll probably shop for Music CDs and Wall art since I buy my Anime & Manga online.
The Deals never seemed that much at cons unless you bought in bulk.

I'm also can't wait to see Scandal Live.

I'll try going for the full weekend.
I might go sightseeing as well...

I hear you on the Scandal concert. That is the day after my last final for the semester and I cannot wait to see them.

Yea there really aren't very many deals that you can find at cons, but its always nice to check out the booths on sunday because sometimes they will cut prices just to get rid of stuff. I picked up 3 figures from Persona 4 Arena last year for about $20 each. I was thrilled.

Well hope you enjoy your homecoming to the wonderful Land of Lincoln and have a great ACEN.

I'm going with a friend. This is my first time going to an anime convention. I won't be cosplaying, but I will be attending the panels and shopping for some figures.

Now for the Scandal concert, do we need to purchase separate tickets or wait in line?

I live a few minutes away from Rosemont, I'm down for any meetups.

Nice, I am sure you will enjoy yourself this year. It is seriously a lot of fun, and it will more than likely inspire you to cosplay next time lol.

As for the Scandal concert, there was a period of time where they already sold tickets, BUT don't worry as they will be selling some at the venue. It is however a first come first serve basis and im sure those tix will go pretty quick.

Enjoy your first con and hopefully it leads to loads more.

I'm going, will be doing the figure collecting panel with Mamitan of GSC on Friday night and I'll be working the booth all weekend so anyone that wants to can come say hi, lmao. I hardly do anything else during the convention because I'm too shy for actually making friends.

First time going but have been wanting to go for a couple years now....
Got my tickets with the excuse of it being my official late birthday plans
Hoping to see the panels and get some posters and maybe figures, not sure yet on that one. I'm super excited though!

So want to see the Scandal Concert too.

Looking forward to it. Also I miss Chicago a lot, so that will be fun too. See you guys there! Anyone cosplaying?

I'm pretty sure ill be there as a male version of Poverty God... I'm not 100% sure on that right now though.. I was going to be Wave from Akame Ga Kill, but I don't have the time or money to throw that together at the moment.

Sort of an off-topic question... but what are the current gas prices in the chicago/rosemont area?

Where I'm at it's around $2.09-2.12/gallon... Just needing to know how much more it's gonna go up as I go north :p
