Showing #2: Anime Previews & Manga Round Robin

This week we’ll be selecting some new anime from the fall season to preview. Later on we’ll put up a poll and decide which ones we want to watch for the rest of the semester, so keep in mind which ones your favourites are!

After dinner break, we’ll have a manga round robin game (along with some other possible activities) that involves swapping drawings and creating ridiculous stories. ūüėČ This event is a lot of fun, so don’t miss it!
There will also be an artist meetup during this time, so if you want to chat with some other artists in the club, this will be happening in a nearby room.

6:15 Р7:00 Dinner Break

Hello everyone! Our sponsors page¬†has been updated with our sponsors for the 2014-2015 year. If you’ve got a membership and you love to buy anime merchandise or cosplay items then it would be a good idea to see if your favourite stores have a discount for you.

Other than that, we hope to see you at our Icebreaker today at 5pm! Remember that this event is open to everyone (whether you have a membership or not) so bring your friends and check it out.

Our regular showings will begin next week, at BUCH 104, 5pm – 10pm. Stay tuned for a chance to enter a raffle sometime next week too!
