Anime Central 2003 had something for everyone and this year was no exception with more style and panache than ever before.  Opening Ceremonies and Guest Reception Night gathered attention around the packed Guests of Honor list.  The AMV Iron Chef Music Video Contest continued to gather more and more entries as this field grows with more capable technologies for fans to take advantage of digital media.  Masquerade is always the most popular weekend highlight of the year.  And for those with wandering eyes, SWEK and Duel Jewel held big concerts, Iron Guest Competitions dominated the weekend entertainment, and who could miss all those crazy Game Shows like Anime Idol, The Game Show, Anime Match Game, 25,000Y Pyramid, Fanboy Feud, and the world premiere of Anime Press Your Luck!
