Looking for anime fans in the NW IL/eastern Iowa/Southern Wi area? I live in Elizabeth, IL, which is close to Dubuque IA/Galena IL. I grew up in this area being the only anime fan I knew. I remeber my twin bro and I buying anime at Suncoast video in Dubuque IA. We painted our first car with Tenchi Muyo, Pychic Force and Lunar Silver Star Characters. We were the odd ones in this area and now I live here again and nothings changed. So I thought I'd reach out and see if anyone else exists around here.

I worked in Elizabeth back when Design Mill was still there, but that was only for a year. I actually commuted from Freeport because I wanted to live in an area that actually had stuff in it. When I quit that job I moved back to the suburbs where I grew up.


Hope you can find some otakus out there! I never did.

There's a few of us in the Quad Cities area, but that's probably a couple hours south of you.

I know some people in the QC, I'm about 45 min from there in Galesburg. It's super convenient because my closest cosplay buddies are in the QCA and the Peoria area so I'm right in between :)
