ACen 2022 feature

May 20-22nd was the 25th anniversary of Anime Central (ACEN). They started in 1998 at the Holiday Inn International O’Hare. They then moved around for a few years before settling at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare and Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.


Unfortunately, ACEN did nothing to celebrate the milestone year. The only things of note for this year was the mask issue and the massive staff turn over and changes.

Despite all that, a lot of people had fun and there was still a lot of great cosplay. Thanks to Ron Ladao we get to see some of it. To see the rest of his photos and to get high quality versions of the ones posted head over to the portfolio here.
