Anime Central (ACEN) started in 1998 with 1,2013 attendees, since then it has expanded to over 30,000 people. This is a 24-hour convention with everything going on that you can possibly imagine. Dance parties, panels, photo shoots, vendors, room parties and fantastic gatherings of friends.
Yes, there is the bad. There are the typical drunken idiots that attempt to ruin the good times for everyone. They are the ones with no self control that use alcohol as an excuse to be jerks. There are the creepers and the general nay sayers, unfortunately, any gathering of more than a handful of human beings tends to attract at least a few of these. The trick is to ignore them and enjoy the rest of the convention. The good almost always over powers the bad….after all, this is an anime convention and the good guys ALWAYS (Almost) WIN!!
