Dear Anime Midwest attendees,

Hello fellow con-goers! Thank you so much for attending my panel(s)! As I promised, lists of all the titles shown will be posted. However, I’m still doing panels as we speak so I don’t have time to do it right now.
I promise that they’ll be posted by Monday afternoon.
If that’s too long to wait or you think you might forget, email me at jwiderski@gmail.com and I’ll try to accommodate your request as soon as possible.
Again, if you wouldn’t mind telling Anime Midwest how much you enjoyed my panels and/or me, it goes a long way in helping me out.
If you’d like to see me go to another convention, tell them and give them my email or if you’re running it yourself feel free to contact me!
Have a good day!
