Showing #6: Digital Art Workshop and Manga Round Robin

We will be continuing with our three voted anime: Kyoukai no KanataKill la Kill and Nagi no Asukara. Please be respectful with regards to spoilers and noise levels; those around you are trying to focus on the anime!

The activity this week is art-themed; after returning from dinner break, we’ll be having a Digital Art Workshop hosted by two very talented members including our very own Creative Director! If you’ve always wanted to learn how to create anime-style artwork on the computer, then this is the workshop for you!

After the workshop, we’ll move on to Manga Round Robin, a game played in small groups where each member creates one panel of a manga. All skill levels are welcome- you do NOT need to be an artist to play! It’s all about fun, silliness, and absurdity; for samples of manga that we have created in the past, please see our gallery.

Showing #5: Nostalgia Theme Night

Right off the bat, we’ll begin with your three chosen anime! Dinner break is always a great chance to discuss with your fellow members (and executives!) about these shows, so don’t be shy!

Following dinner break will be a blast from the past: it will be our first Anime Theme Night of the year – Nostalgia! We grew up watching anime like Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Dragonball Z, Sailor Moon, Beyblade, Cardcaptor Sakura, and more. What anime from our childhoods will we choose to re-watch? You’ll need to join us on Friday night to find out!

Warm up your vocal cords: this week’s activity is one of the club’s all-time favorites- Karaoke Night! To ensure that everyone gets a chance to sing, we will be using a simple queuing system on the chalkboard and limiting each person to one or two songs until everyone has had a turn. All skill levels are accepted; you do NOT need to be a professional to participate! Need a partner (or partners) to sing a certain song with you? Try asking on our Facebook Group!
