Showing #1: Week of September 23rd 2012

Until the new season starts (early-mid October), we will watch shows that members requested when they filled out the surveys at our icebreaker. Please be respectful when watching anime in the club; others may not have seen the series yet. Membership will be available at the showing, or any of our weekly showings if you haven’t had the chance to purchase it yet. Speak to our Treasurer, Ivy.

This week’s activity is Manga Round Robin; a game where each team creates their own manga. Each member of the team will add their own panel to a page. Of course, the story can be as serious or whacky as you’d like; anything goes! We recommend you bring your drawing utensils and a ruler. No drawing experience required.

Sword Art Online Synopsis: “In the near future, a Virtual Reality Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (VRMMORPG) called Sword Art Online has been released where players control their avatars with their bodies using a piece of technology called Nerve Gear. One day, players discover they cannot log out, as the game creator is holding them captive unless they reach the 100th floor of the game’s tower and defeat the final boss. However, if they die in the game, they die in real life. Their struggle for survival starts now…” -Crunchyroll
