Hi everyone! I just realized this forum was here so I thought i should introduce myself. I'm a transplant from Maryland, so not new to conventions (Otakon 2 times now)
but I'm brand new to the Chicago area and this is my first ACEN! I'm kind of nervous but also super excited!

I like drawing, games (mostly RPG - FF, Kingdom hearts, Tales series, Star Ocean, etc), and reading comics (various shoujo titles), vocaloid, and of course watching
anime. ^_^ Most recently I watched Tiger and Bunny. I also like cosplay, but unfortunately didn't have time to put anything together for this year. I lived
in Japan for awhile. I guess that's all.. Anyway, like I said I'm a total newbie to ACEN and I hope to meet a lot of new friends! ^_^

Will do!


I'll be dressed as Bossun from Sket Dance. So if you see a guy wearing a red cap with devil horns and goggles on it. That's me

Welcome to the forums ^.^ and to Chicago as well!

You'll have plenty of time to try to put together a cosplay for next years ACen. My first year I didn't cosplay and I felt so out of place! Not to say everyone has to be in cosplay, but I absolutely love being in costume so I wanted to do it the next year and I absolutely loved it. Ten years later and I'm still doing it at ACen.

Like Fujoshi mentioned, I also suggest to try some Chicago Deep Dish pizza and Mitsuwa in Arlington Heights is a lovely place to stop by and stock up on Japanese candies and foods. They are having their Bon Odori Festival soon so that might be a good place to meet some people :3

Welcome to ACen! It's so cool you've lived in Japan. It's my life goal to live there one day. Maybe I could request some assistance in learning the language some time? =3

If it's anything you'll be doing, it's meeting new friends. I think a good chunk of my friends now are because I took pictures of them throughout my ACen career (07 to present) and they tag themselves XD. It's awesome to be adding more to the numbers!

Aww.. thanks! I'm a super shy person (^^;), but I met some nice people my first time, though unforunately no one that lives closeby in downtown Chicago. But I love meeting new people. I'm going to go next year too (unless school gets in the way), and will cosplay too! Hope I see you there. =)

Hi! It's nice to meet you~! I love Mitsuwa Plaza ^_^ I live in Chicago, so I go there a lot. My favorite is Shio Ramen. Have you tried it? It's so delicious!

Hi! Thanks so much. I had fun last year, and am looking forward to going again next year and meeting new people! ^_^ Japan is super fun. My best friend is still there in Tokyo, so I go back a lot (well, depending on how busy I am
with school and stuff...). I love speaking japanese, it's the only other language I'm fluent in other than english, lol. Well, you can ask me language questions if you want to =) if you live in Chicago and want to be friends, we can meet
up and hang out and speak japanese ^_^
