Built on the promise of expanding anime interest into Northwestern anime community, Sakura Con finished another successful year with great Guests of Honor and many cool things to attend, but what about the undocumented activities and unbridled fan flavor?  Here we show you some things worth mentioning that may pop eyeballs and spur pre-registration for next year!
