No anime convention experience is complete without actually watching some anime! Anime Central’s video rooms run twenty-four hours a day for the whole weekend for your viewing pleasure. We show some of everything: eagerly anticipated premieres, classics and old favorites, and series featuring Anime Central’s American and Japanese guests.

Shoujo Room:

  • From magical girls to crime-fighting space heroines, angels to demons and card-collecting summoners, the Shoujo room features girl power in all its manifestations!

Shounen Room:

  • Never get between a boy and his toys, especially when his toys are ten-story-tall mecha with minds of their own!

Dub Room:

  • For fans of our American voice actors and anyone who would rather not read subtitles, our dub room shows anime with the English language track.


  • For those genre-bending (and occasionally genderbending) adventures that don’t fit in a particular category, come watch the Saotome Anything-Goes School of Video Programming Martial Arts! (Note: Hot and cold water buckets not permitted.)

After Hours:

  • During the late night and overnight blocks, we show series aimed at a mature audience. Hentai, yaoi and yuri are all represented; the vampire blocks are eternally popular; and then there’s the legendaryLSD block, for when it’s 3 A.M. and Serial Experiments Lain has you questioning whether you’re awake and watching anime or just dreaming of electric sheep.

Fan Created Room:

  • In honor of the creative community that blends music, video clips, and a healthy dose of mad-eyed vision in new and mind-bending ways, one of our rooms is dedicated to fan-created anime music videos, parodies, and other content made possible by viewers just like you.
