Aloha everyone!
Hope everybody is enjoying this rocky start to the new school year.
We are happy to announce that Fall AMS meetings will start next week Thursday and Friday (September 6th and 7th) from 4:30 to 7pm in Kuykendall Hall Room 210.
  • Thursdays = structured showings. We will vote on 3-4 anime to watch for the rest of the semester during Thursday’s first meeting.  You can find the nomination poll for Thursday’s showings on our Facebook group -> HERE
  • Fridays = more loosely structured. “Fresh Fridays”/”Themed Fridays” There will be games/quizzes in between showings on Fridays. We also have various events/potlucks/parties on Fridays such as our Welcome Back Potluck and Holiday Party!

We look forward to seeing everyone next week!

Anime Ohana Festival (AOFest)

In the past year, the Anime Manga Society has been working with Meta Human Entertainment to help them put together an anime/geek culture convention at UH. Called Anime Ohana Festival (AO Fest), it will be held on June 23rd at the UH Manoa Campus Center. They will feature a host of local guests, and are also currently in the process of seeking Justin Roiland (Rick and Morty, Adventure Time) and others from abroad.

If you could get anyone to come to AO Fest (or any anime convention), who would YOU want to see? We’ve got a fun little poll up that you can participate in– list anyone you want, and you might get your wish granted!

Welcome Back from Spring Break! Officer Nominations and End of the Year Party

Hey all! We hope you had a relaxing Spring Break. We will be back this week with the second and third OVAs of Girls and Panzer, 14-15 of The Ancient Magus’ Bride, and 9-10 of Death March.

Also, FYI:

  • We’re holding our Officer Nomination Poll to pick AMS officers for Fall 2018 – Spring 2019! If you feel that you or someone else you know in club would be an exceptional officer, you can fill out the nomination form here! Officers who help to run the Anime Manga Society will get free paid membership perks during the time they serve.
  • Our End of the Year Potluck Party is set for Friday, April 27th! You can view the event page here to RSVP.
  • If you attended our Girl’s Day/Hinamatsuri Party on March 16th and have any comments or suggestions, write something in our feedback form to tell us what you think.

Girl’s Day (Hinamatsuri) Party!

This Friday, we will be having our annual Girl’s Day (Hinamatsuri) party! So instead of our usual Fresh Friday showings, things will be a little different – girls get to control the showings, and guys bring food! We will also be having some fun activities, so feel free to bring friends along as well!

If you have any questions, go and ask your Female VP and Representative, Beverly Quock (bquock@hawaii.edu).

The event will be from 4:30p to 10:00p in our usual room, Kuykendall 210. We hope you see you there!

KawaiiKon Artist Alley – Thank You Artists and Volunteers!

Hello everyone, we hope you had fun at KawaiiKon 2018!

I would like to give a big thank you to all of the artists and volunteers that helped to put together our artist alley booth this year. It looked amazing!

This is the first time that we’ve gone for an “open” booth format for artists in our club. We’re thinking about making Artists@AMS a yearly opportunity at KawaiiKon Artist Alleys– if you missed out this year don’t worry, we’ll definitely do this again in 2019, and maybe even at other events too!

Of course, our weekly showing meetings will resume this Thursday and Friday.
またね!

Join us at our Pre-KawaiiKon 2018 Potluck!

Hello everyone– our first Semester Party/Pre-KawaiiKon 2018 Potluck will be this Friday, February 23rd, 4:30-9:30pm! So in place of our usual Fresh Fridays, we’re up for doing something different! In past years, we’ve often watched movies and played games for our beginning-of-semester parties. And remember, it will be potluck, so bring food! 
 
If you want to do anything specific, you can respond in this Facebook poll/comment section, OR submit something to our suggestion box here: https://goo.gl/forms/NnQ6RKSeDLD0yhPx1
