How do you top an outstanding array of panels in 1999?  By holding even more panels in 2000!  That's exactly what Anime Central 2K did this year with so many forum events and discussions to attend, we couldn't go to them all!  But we did our best to capture as many as we could.  With the exploding popularity of English voice actors, DVDs, manga works, and computer graphics in anime, Anime Central 2K played host to a growing number of audience participation discussions and activity rooms sure to satiate the appetites of even the most hungry convention attendees.

Mythological Heroes in Anime: moderator Crispin Freeman took attendees on an inspiring journey through tall tales of ancient times to analyze the parallels between famous mythological gods, goddesses, heroes, and legends and modern plots applied to great anime shows of our time.  Examples used came from popular heroic action movies, books, and legends and studying what the power of myth has on human psyche and what role it plays in our everyday lives.
Audience in wonderment at the Mythological Heroes in Anime panel also engaged in healthy discussion concerning new shoujo shows and mangas.  Also attending were friends Brett Weaver and Amy Howard (far left). Import Video Gaming: moderators Jason Dvorak, James Alsup, and Tom McNulty discussed the future of Japanese video games brought overseas to America and what impact it may have on the domestic gaming industry.
