Summer Minna!!

Hey everyone! Mouse here with a late, but important, announcement! Summer Minna will be held Saturdays in Room 112 of the Business Building (3-112) all summer! Keep an eye on the sidebar schedule and/or google calendar for updates. Hope to see you there!

Open House Thank Yous!

Hello Minna!! Just want to give a quick thank you to everyone who helped out at the Open House booth. Everything went really smoothly (even though it was slightly warmer than desired). You guys (and gals) are awesome!!!

Hope next year goes just as smoothly! This coming Saturday we'll be going back to our normal Saturday schedule with anime! Hope you can make it. :)


UPDATE: BOOTH LOCATION IS C24, C25, C28, which is in the parking lot between the Ag building and the Math & Science building!!!!

This Saturday, April 16, is the day when Minna no Anime sells food to promote our club and make some dinero to keep the prize box going. Come join us anytime from 6AM to 4PM and help set up the booth, make some onigiri, or let others know about our club! Or, you know, just come and hang out~ Please note that we will not have a traditional meeting that night - it's all about the Open House.

If you help out for two hours, you get ~*~ONE FREE ONIGIRI MEAL~*~, which is two onigiri of your choice and a drink! And if you help out with taking down the booths at 3PM and loading/unloading people's cars, you get to participate in our ~*~PRIZE BOX GIVEAWAY~*~. WOW SUCH DEALS HERE!!!!

Here are the roles and jobs we'll need volunteers for:

  • 6-8AM: setting up booths (SO EARLY, YOU A CHAMP)
  • 8AM-3PM: prepping and cooking rice
  • 9AM-3PM:
    • cutting veggies and mixing meat
    • packing rice, veggies and/or meat into a mold
    • handing out drinks and onigiri
    • telling everyone how wonderful Minna no Anime is
    • telling everyone how wonderful our onigiri is
  • 3-4PM: tearing down the booths and loading/unloading cars
If you're interested in any of those positions, sign up here for the times you'll be available that day.

If you're gonna hang out at our booth in any way, show off your anime pride with cosplay! Don't have cosplay to wear? Fear not: wear a Minna shirt, or if you're out of those, just put on a regular ol' anime shirt! Fine small print: please wear safe-for-work clothes, arigato gozaimasu. Also, if you plan to help out with food while cosplaying, choose a costume you can comfortably move around in.

Bring anime merchandise, like figures, art books and manga, to decorate the info booth if you can. If you have any knives or cutting boards, bring that too! Last but not least, please wear sunscreen!!!! If you forget, there should be sunscreen at the booths.

Booth location will be posted as soon as we find out where it is from the Open House committee! In the mean time, think about chowing down on delicious onigiri.....

Winter Goshi Trip!

Heya folks!

Minna no Anime's quarterly end-of-the-quarter Goshi Dinner is coming up in just two weeks time, Sunday March 13 @ 7:00 PM! In order to give the good people over at Goshi Japanese Restaurant time to schedule shifts and generally prepare for the arrival of a back room full of Minna people, we need orders from you by end of club this Saturday! That's right, if you want to order some delicious Japanese cuisine to eat amongst fine company, you'll need to order it by 10 PM on Saturday, March 5th. Signup link is here.

Payment is due to MnA treasurer Eric Oatey by Saturday, March 12. He's the guy with the cash box at any Minna no Anime or Minna no Manga meeting. If you cannot make it to club during that time but still want to go to Goshi, contact Eric @
