Anime Midwest is totally awesome, and you should go.
**4th of July weekend at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare (Chicago).**
Featuring: Steam Powered Giraffe Concerts, An Awesome Exhibit Hall, and A ConSweet with Free Ramen, Rice, and Soda.
It's one of the best conventions you could ever attend, because it's both fun and still pretty cheap at the same time - which tends to be a rarity after conventions start getting over 10,000 attendees.

15,000 people or more usually attend. The attendees are some of the best, and the events are insanely good.
I'm only about 6 hours away from Chicago. Perhaps I should start planning a trip :)
I'm even closer, and now that I've got me some work I'll probably be able to afford going!
i might be able to go once i get up there, and i might go as caim from the drakengaurd game
I should go. :) Live in the 'burbs of Chicago.
I've considered going to Anime Midwest the last couple years but haven't been able to make it. Maybe next year will be the one finally go. It'll be on my birthday again. XD
Awe I'm stuck in texas, we barely have anime cons here
I want to go but being a broke otaku sucks
Definitely going! Only about 20 minutes from O'hare! I'm more of a Midway guy ;p This'll be my first convention, definitely gonna make it count :)
Debating between this one and ACEN. I've been to ACEN but never this one? Suggestions?
