Time Out says

For fans of Japanese pop-culture (including anime, video games, musicians and strange snack foods), there's no larger Midwest celebration of the Land of the Rising Sun than Anime Central. The annual convention allows like-minded otaku to mingle, admire the gravity-defying hairstyles sported by cosplayers and meet English and Japanese voice actors who bring imported cartoons to life. When the convention floor closes, the party continues at the popular Soap Bubble dance and late-night anime screenings.
