Last Thursday, End of Semester Party, and Saturday Karaoke!

This week we will be our last set of meetings for 2018, but we have some events which you might be interested in:

1. Today, in KUY 210 from 4:30p-7:00p we’re watching our weekly showings: the 11th episodes of Wotakoi, Cells at Work!, Recovery of an MMO Junkie, and Violet Evergarden, and the 21st and 22nd episodes of Darling in the Franxx.

2. Tomorrow, we’ll have our end-of-the-year party! Relax and unwind before exams. We’ve got the second floor rooms in Kuykendall (right across from the iLab) with setup beginning at 4:30, going until 10pm– come by to our thing right after the MAG game night!

[ KUY 210 ] – Potluck and showings (we can finish up our Thursday showings, or watch a movie, etc)
$20-or-less secret santa (safe for work please)
[ KUY 209 ] – Open Game Room
[ KUY 208 ] – Karaoke with Vocaluxe

Like other game days, I’m bringing my laptop setup to our party. You are also very much welcome to bring over your own console/PC setups to our event, though note that you may want to bring your own multi-outlets to the event if you can.

3. We also have a Karaoke social on Saturday, which is kind of full— I’m not sure how much more we can fit, but feel free to let us know on our discord or at ams@hawaii.edu if you’re interested in future Karaoke stuff!

Join us at our 2018 Halloween/Cosplay Party!

Showing Picks for Thursdays!

Last week, you chose the weekly showing format, and voted from the pool of nominations. From this, you picked our showings for this semester– each week, we will watch the following:

Shows don’t necessarily need to be in this order: if you want a show aired earlier or later in the meeting, let us know and we’ll check if people in club are okay with that.

Remember that if you can’t make it to the meeting but still have free time, you can join us on Rabb.it/Discord.

Meeting times will be from 4:00p-7:00p in Kuykendall Hall 210. Check our calendar for a more detailed look at our meetings and events.

First Meetings 9/6 and 9/7 in Kuykendall 210, Rabb.it Online Showings

Our first meetings for this semester are upon us! Join us in Kuykendall 210 on Thursday and Friday.
Here’s an overview:

  • At Thursday Meetings we will air full or almost full series that everyone picks to watch. NOTE that there are two rounds of voting, one in the Facebook poll (going on now) and one this Thursday by the people present in club which is pooled from that Facebook poll.
    If you want to nominate stuff for the voting pool on Thursday, be sure to add your stuff here! We will close it up on Wednesday 9/5, midnight.

    CLICK HERE TO VOTE IN THE POLL
  • Friday Meetings are open days. At the very least, we’ll watch stuff, but we plan to do additional events alongside the showings such as tabletop and video gaming (PC and Console!) and the like.
    For any showings on Friday– people pick a show to watch three episodes of on that day in club. Once a show is picked, the club must watch three episodes of it, and it cannot be watched again for the rest of the semester. Same rules apply except the “no reruns” and “no shows with more than 26 episodes” rules. Have something you want people to get into? Show it to our club!

We are planning on supplementing our meetings and showings with an online service called Rabb.it. If you’re unable to make it to the meeting, you can tune in from anywhere, and you can also join in on the online chat room!

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!
