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

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.
