2020-2021 Schedule

Welcome back, MnA!

Before you check the schedule for this year, there are some key points that I would like to bring to your attention, as certain situations have changed the way that we structured club this year. Thank you for bearing with the system as we adjust the club to a virtual environment (for now!).

1. Fall quarter will have a completely different schedule than Winter/Spring.

Due to changes in the academic calendar, some of which have been surprisingly advantageous to our club, we have made it so that we can finish all of our Fall shows before we move on to Winter quarter. In full disclosure, putting the schedule together was no easy task this year due to the current pandemic. We want to start Winter quarter on a blank slate, as there might be the possibility of holding meetings in-person. Even if this does not come to pass, the decision to separate Fall and Winter/Spring actually allowed us to show more anime than we would normally be able to, so we felt it was an appropriate choice to make.

2. No Hangout for Fall quarter, as meetings will be split up across Thursdays and Saturdays.

Now, this may be a controversial change to some of you, but we decided to use both days of the week in order to hold our regular viewing meetings. Fall quarter is primarily online, and many people are living with their families. We assessed our ability to hold viewing meetings only on Saturdays last quarter, and we came to the conclusion that it was unfair and unrealistic to expect members to be available from 5-10pm on Saturdays while they're at home. We also felt that members are active enough in participating in their own VCs and chats on our server, so it seems a little unnecessary to have an official Hangout period.

Therefore, we will be holding our viewing meetings on Thursdays and Saturdays from 8-10pm, on both days. We will be using the same procedure as last quarter: We will distribute the episodes for the week via Google Drive and host a VC on this Discord for people to join in our virtual Silo.

If Winter/Spring is online as well, we may be using this model for those quarters. If not, and we are allowed to hold in-person meetings, we will return to our normal style of proceedings with Hangout on Thursdays and viewing meetings on Saturdays.

Now, without further ado, we present the schedule for this year.

2020-2021 T-shirt Survey

Hello MNA!

I hope that all of you have had a wonderful summer so far. The current pandemic may seem like it has no end (or no beginning, to the surprising amount of people ignoring it), but let's set our sights on the future instead of stressing over the present. Next year marks the 30th anniversary of club! In order to have a proper celebration (scheduled for February 6th and 7th, 2021 unless something happens), we've already begun working on preparations. Part of this involves club t-shirts, and there are a few possible ways we can hold them. We would like to hear from you to determine which option works best for club. Please fill out this form as honestly and quickly as you're able to, as we want to have this information ASAP for scheduling purposes.

Thank you!

End of Year Survey

Now that the entire club year is over, the officer team has put together a little survey in order to gauge community interest. Please answer all questions as honestly as possible, as we may use this information when assembling the schedule for next year. To those of you graduating, we thank you for being a part of club during your time here at Cal Poly, and we can't wait to see you again. To those of you who will be continuing your college experience, we look forward to sharing more unforgettable moments together. With that, we hope that every member of our community has a great summer!

Community Suggestions Voting

Greetings, Minna no Anime:

Want to see what everyone suggested and vote on them so that the officers know what's popular amongst club members? Sounds like you should check out this form before 10pm on May 9th then, since that's when voting closes. But here are some basic pieces of information you should be aware of beforehand:

All suggestions which were deemed too inappropriate for club, have too large of an episode count, and/or have been shown in club within the past 5 years have been removed to abide by scheduling policies. There are some questionable entries on the form, and we are aware of this. However, we wanted to cut the least amount of shows possible, and we expect people to vote responsibly. We will be making further considerations once voting has been completed.

You will need to enter your name and email in order to vote. This is to ensure that people only submit ONE response. Names will removed from responses after verification and will have no influence on schedule considerations. If we can't match a response to a club member, it will be cast to the void. Due to this, you've been given the ability to edit your response after you submit.

Please check all shows you would like to be considered for next year's club schedule. Note: what you deem "good" may not be good for club. On that subject, the form has been randomized so that there is no clear order.

That's all for now, see y'all later.
