Fans and staff always come back to LLNN because of the high-quality photo and panel coverage, and that's a great thing.  With new ways to gain momentum and new avenues to explore, Anime Central once again proves that no matter what challenges it is up against, the fans are there to back it up and drive the excitement to new heights.  BUT!  Every convention and area we visit has its neat little quirks and giggles to poke fun at, and once again, here's the section to do just that. 

Anime Central 2001
LLNN Alien Sightings

Cosplay Madness: Menshi and Gojira duke it out in the lobby!  It's all about playing with the Big Boys now! Gong Show Rules: a curse for some... a blessing for others...  Everyone had different opinions, but in the end it looks like 2002 will not see the Gong again.  We shall see!
Mysterious Beings from Outer Space: these and other examples of art on hotel doors were a common sighting as much as the mysterious sounds emanating from within...  very spooky... Ryoohki's evil twin started making its way onto attendee's backs now that Ryoohki himself has saturated the market.  Guys: get a clue.  Girls love this stuff! And everyone loves pocky, as shown here with LLNN Chicago Unit (ACen Liason) "Akane" in Ops Center.
LLNN Friday night dinner: Lou Malnatis makes the best Illinois pizza!  Deep dish all the way! LLNN Sunday Night dinner: and to celebrate another successful con coverage, LLNN staff gathered at Morton's Steakhouse for some classy dining.
LLNN Sunday Night dinner: LLNN friends (left to right) "Parfait", "Conty", and "Rabi" enjoy a succulent prime rib extravaganza! Uhhmm... yeah...
And it's back home to California HQ! Thanks to American Airlines for a nice beef roast...  ^.^
