The Midwest Animation Promotion Society, sponsors of the Anime Central Convention, is presenting "Anime Central Aftershock!" as part of the Chicago Comic-Con (formerly Wizard World: Chicago), which will be held in Rosemont, Illinois from August 6-9.  This is the first time ever that ACen has offered programming to fans outside of their annual Anime Central event, which is typically held in Rosemont in May.


"Anime Central Aftershock!" will provide a variety of anime/manga programming including anime showings, artist appearances, panel events, contests, and cosplay.  ACen Aftershock! programming will be held at both the Hyatt Regency O’Hare and the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center (the main venue for the Chicago Comic-Con).
