Anime Midwest

Hey Guys.
Coming up in July this year is a convention called Anime Midwest. Though it's technically an anime convention there will be gaming-related events there, including an all-day gaming room with scattered tournaments, Ellen McClain (voice of GlaDos from Portal 2) as a special guest hosting some panels, and other things. Here is the official web site. http://www.animemidwest.com/
The typical pre-registration fee before the end of May is $30 for the weekend. If we can get at least 10 people going as a group we can get a 10% discount. I went last year and had a good time. I plan on being there Saturday and Sunday since I'll be working that Friday before. RSVP if you're interested and we can work something out.

    I went there this Friday. So many people. I bought the ticket at door and it was fast to get into the place. Also saw many people were waiting in the line for preregistration. Did not see any new game things at there but I went there for the anime purpose. It was lots of fun.

    OK change of plans. The booth we were counting on didn't pan out. (Long story short, a lot of confusion with registration and emails) But we're still gonna be there Saturday. We'll instead be in the gaming room with name tags starting at 8 and hanging out all day so come find us.

    Would have loved to attend, but I only just joined this group and I'll be working that day. Hope everyone who does go has a good time, looking forward to meeting you all in the near future.

      there will be a booth in the dealer's room. if no one is there we'll probably be hanging out in the gaming room.

      I can take Dave's place on Sunday if you need someone to fill in for him

      June 17, 2013

    • Clifford Hecht

      Oh I can cover Sunday fine. I'll be there both days anyway.

    Hi, all.

    June 15, 2013

  • Clifford Hecht

    just to let people know if you haven't registered yet. The fee jumps up to $40 for the weekend after tonight. You can still just choose to pay for 1 day for I think $25 at the con but tickets are going fast so depending on when you show up a pass may not be guaranteed.

    Hi people, I like anime and casually play video games. May I know if I could still join the group now? and how people get there if they live in the city? Thank you!

    June 4, 2013

    • Pandora

      sorry one more question..is our ticket for Friday, Saturday and Sunday (three days total)? Thank you!

      June 4, 2013

    • Clifford Hecht

      if you preregister, then yes, the ticket is for all 3 days. you can pay for just one day at the con itself, but apparantly tickets are going kind of fast so I'd preregister soon to ensure you have a spot. preregisteration now is $35 for the weekend. it'll become $40 after June 15.

    It's been so long since I last went to Anime Midwest, it would be interesting to go again.

    Hate to miss this. Will be out of the country.

    Just letting you guys know, if you're thinking about attending and haven't registered yet, you should do so soon. I got an email from them that said they've had more people than ever pre-register and think it's possible they'll sell out since about 75% of their guests pay at the convention. It's $35 for the weekend now and after June 15 it'll be $40 for the weekend.

  • nick

    I'd go to that

    May 19, 2013

  • Clifford Hecht

    Hey everyone. Just letting you know there's about 10 days left to register to get the price of $30 for the weekend. after that it jumps up.

    May 19, 2013

  • Robert Hill

    Hmm. Curious. I wonder if Square Enix and Tamashii Nations will have booths there.

    May 12, 2013

    • Clifford Hecht
