Anime Midwest 2013

July 5-7, 2013
Rosemont, IL

Official Review

Anime Midwest's third year did not disappoint, as the convention grew four times in size and stayed the same (really low) price. The weekend included some growing pains, with the average line lasting an hour and not more than two hours, but these pitfalls were more than made up for with a host of epic events - including a brilliant Steam Powered Giraffe concert and a ton of guest panels. Attendees were surprised when guests charged for autographs, but the convention has stated that it will not allow guests to charge for autographs in the future. Overall the weekend ran really smoothly for a third year, and the convention kept the promise to provide unlimited free Mountain Dew and Ramen all weekend.
