So, getting an idea, who else is going to Anime Midwest?

And what's your biggest draw/reason? Karaoke? GLaDOS? Todd? For me it would definitely be GLaDOS.

As of this writing, Anime Midwest already promises a variety of guests and a con suite. And if their statement about "over 3000 people" is correct, then the con will hopefully have no issues with crowd control, or being too sparse.

This'll probably be the tricky part. With that many guests, there may end up being a ton more people there than expected XD 3,000 people would be a just-right amount though! :D

Frankly I'm going to Anime Midwest to see Steam Powered Giraffe perform, that, and I couldn't make it last year. I went when it first opened up in 2011 and had a super awesome time with everyone.

I'm still pretty stoked for this con. I like how it's in the summer so it's a guaranteed go for me. And it gives me more time (since its summer break) to make cosplays. XD

So now that ACen is over is everyone looking forward to Anime Midwest? I'm kinda glad I'm going this year because it made the Con depression from ACen a little lower since this event is right around the corner! Is anyone working on a new cosplay? Or will you be reusing your costume from ACen?

If you didn't get a copy of the schedule/program at the Anime Midwest booth, there are PDFs on the website.

http://animemidwest.com/events

This one is about 95% right, the one in the full PDF is 100%.
