ALL attendees of Anime Midwest get access to an entire floor of the Hyatt Regency O'hare devoted to giving you free snacks, ramen, and soda.

Every album, starting with “Mega Ran” in 2007, conveys a different theme, a different vibe, and a different emotion.

Hundreds of exhibitors and artists.

Wall-to-wall vendor booths of anime goods, DVDs, plushies, wall-scrolls, you-name-it, including booths from anime companies such as Funimation, as well as hundreds of your favorite anime artist studios will be in the Anime Midwest exhibit hall.
