Experience Your Fandoms - For Real

We're not exclusively anime, y'know (although we DO love it). Any and all fandoms are celebrated here! And on our turf, there's too much to explore, too much adventure to embark on NOT to feel like you've been swept up into your favorite world - near or far!

Ohio's Prime Anime-cation!

With modern conveniences in a timeless nature retreat, Midoricon is an outdoor adventure complete with everything you've grown to love about your typical anime con (namely indoor panels, merchants, electricity & running water), you're in for an adventure.
