Interesting news here. I enjoyed Anime World last year but my fellow convention attendees, small cons can be fun, in terms of conventions, for me, Bigger Means Better! Bigger conventions offer more things to do, more friends can be made, and more celebrities to be met (I wonder how many more, if any, anime celebs they'll get.) Not sure the details, but if Wizard World had all their stuff in Donald E while Anime World stays in Hyatt to practically the same, maybe somewhat revised to the events/programming last year, I think this could be very epic. Here's hoping it will be.

This has the potential to become a monster.
Hopefully, they'll get more floor space.

By the looks of Anime World Chicago's website, it pretty much got swallowed up by Wizard World.

Well that's depressing news given I really don't like the way wizard World tends to work.

Noooooo AWC was my favorite small con, both to attend and to staff. So sad. There isn't any mention on wizard worlds site

Yeah not a single mention. This kind of sucks because I was almost thinking that they would try to hold Anime World in Hyatt (maybe remove a few elements like dealer rooms and their dance would be replaced by the Wizard World one) while keeping small anime panels.

Hopefully "something" is planned and its not just going G4 TechTV on us. In all fairness though, I won't really miss Anime World that much (no offense to those in here) it did have a better game room than Anime Midwest last year, but it didn't have the shine or shimmer overall that ACen or Midwest had overall. Just my opinion though.

They need to get more space then. Wizard World was crowded as hell last year.
