Meeting Summary 4/21/16

Hello Everybody!

Last Thursday was our final meeting of the semester! We had an unofficial get together starting around 11 AM with some video games brought in by the members and officers. Then, at 7 PM, we put on some rad anime. We watched episodes from some of our half-season runner ups to the anime voting from the week before, Mononoke and Erased. We also watched a few OVAs from our two half-season shows this semester, Hozuki no Reitetsu and One-Punch Man. There was a nice spread of goodies to eat as well!

Being it the last meeting of the Spring semester, this will be the last of my posts as Media Coordinator of the club. It has been a good year, and I’m glad I was able to serve the club in this way. Even though I wasn’t able to attend most of the meetings this semester, I still felt involved being able to write about the meetings and participate in discussions on the Facebook page. Thanks to everyone who read the summaries! 🙂

Also, a shout out to our graduating seniors! These are some of the people who have been in Gator Anime since their first years in college and have made it what it is today. You all rock!

Oh, and look out on the Facebook page for announcements about Summer meetings! Meetings during the Summer are quite free-form and fun. If you are in town, make sure to drop on by!

See you all later!

Meeting Summary – 4/14/16

Hello Gator Anime!

Last week’s meeting was our last official meeting of the semester! Make sure you check out the Facebook page for info on our upcoming “unofficial” meeting (which will truly be the last meeting of the spring semester)

We opened up with voting for the next fall semester’s anime. There were some close calls, but in the end, the victors were Anohana (Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Boku-tachi wa Mada Shiranai or Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day) and Gekkan Shojou Nozaki-kun for our two half seasons and Shin Sekai Yori (or From the New World) for our full season

For member’s choice, we watched some of Osamu Tezuka’s  famous and historic Astro Boy. We also watched the final episodes 11-13 of Hozuki no Reitetsu and the final episode 13 of Katanagatari

See you around!

Astro Boy!

Meeting Summary – 3/31/16

Hello everybody!

Last meeting was good fun as always 🙂 We opened up with a really bad panel. That is, a really bad anime review panel! From what I heard, shows were torn apart, feelings were crushed, friendships were ruined… a lot of fun basically. For member’s choice, we watched Saint☆Oniisan, the only anime that has more religious connotations that Evangelion and Death Parade combined

After our break, we watched episodes 7 and 8 of Hozuki no Reitetsu and episode 10 of Katanagatari

Also, applications for officer positions closed last Thursday at 11 PM! Elections will be at the forthcoming meeting. Watch the Facebook Page for updates and more info!
