Update for Meeting 10.16.14

Sorry for the late meeting update. I’ve been pretty sick lately, and it’s showing no signs of improving which sucks so I’ve been out of it.

Remember to sign up for the Halloween Party and Shadocon. Both are approaching quickly. You should try to bring some food for the Halloween party because the more food you bring, the more we eat.

Last week’s panel was How to Survive Your First Con by Savannah. I wish I knew all the stuff she talked about before my first con. I just vaguely remember spending a lot of money on anything I could find and doing nothing else.
Next week’s panel is one of the favorite panels so you should go to it.
Our member’s choice was Princess Tutu, a magical girl anime about a girl who is a duck who is a girl. Sound interesting? You can watch it here:http://www.hulu.com/princess-tutu
We finished Angel Beats and watched the first OVA. *hug for the feels*
and watched more Jojos (episodes 13 and 14)
Hope you have a magical week! Can’t wait to see you Thursday unless I’m sick or dead and can’t make it to the meeting.

Update for Meeting 10.9.14

Hello everyone!
Here’s what you missed from the last meeting:
We watched a panel called Anime Influencing Animation. Did you know that the Spiderman show and Transformers were influenced by Japanese animation? You would’ve known that and more if you’d come to the panel presented by Kristine. Message her to learn more.
We watched Baccano as the member’s choice. You can watch it here:http://www.hulu.com/baccano
We also watched episodes 11 and 12 of Angel Beats and Jojo’s so make sure to catch up on those and see the final episode of Angel Beats next week. Also we’ll be starting Angel Beats OVAs next week, so you don’t want to miss it.
Thanks! Remember to sign up for Shadocon and the Halloween Party if you haven’t already. Everyone can sign up at a meeting or email an officer if you’re interested. Officer info is located in the Meet the Officers tab at the top.

 

Update From Meeting 9.25.14

Hello!
So just a friendly reminder to sign up for the Lake Wauberg trip. It’s next Saturday so make sure to be there!
Also, here’s what we did last meeting in case you missed it.
Robert did his Go panel which was really cool cause if you don’t know anything about Go now you know a lot, and it’s a really interesting again. Like did you know they used to have schools dedicated especially to Go? Yeah, well that was in his panel. If you wanna learn more message him or check out his links from his panel, Exploring the Art of Go.

There will be a mandatory meeting coming up this Thursday, the 18th at 5 p.m. so make sure to be there or notify Lisha that you want to be in Maid Café if you cant attend or want more information.
If you’re interested in helping make the hologram videos for the Vocaloid concert, you should talk to Chan. During the meeting, we covered a little bit about how to make the videos and what they look like after they’re finished.

Hello anime otakus and light anime watchers alike! Hope you all had a great summer during which you got to watch lots of anime. 
As you know, the dreaded school year is here, but so is anime club!!!!
We’ll be having an unofficial meeting this Thursday in CSE e222. The building is right next to the french fries and you’ll want to enter the building on the side facing Turlington to find the room. 
What does unofficial mean? We’ll basically just be watching random anime together.

All meetings are from 7 to 11 p.m. We look forward to seeing you there!
