It’s ACen week! We’ll be reporting from the Midwest’s largest anime convention through the power of the internet. This is the thirteenth annual Anime Central convention. Last year’s attendance exceeded 17,000 and the event added three new hotels, so this may be overwhelming regardless of staying in a room or commuting. To plan ahead of time, ACen posted the full schedule and crafted some awesome planning and mobile tools! You can also follow Anime Central on Twitter for schedule changes and cancellations throughout the weekend.
