Tee-Shirts, Officership, and Brand New Shows!

Hello Minna! This is your Webmaster with a few announcements.

First! Tee-Shirt contest will be closing next week (February 3rd). If you want to have your own original design showcased on the back of a tee-shirt for all eternity, get those designs in! Examples of previous designs can be found here, and the rules can be found here.

Secondly, officer elections are coming up in the not-so-far-not-so-close future. If you are interested in making decisions for the club, and just making club awesome in general, you should think about it! Talk to one of the current officers to learn more about the positions they fill.

On a related note, I'll be stepping down from being Webmaster this year. Webmaster is a very important position, one of the key ones that keeps the club running. If you're interested in being webmaster, speak to me or shoot an email to webmaster@minnanoanime.org!

Finally, we'll be starting new shows this coming February (the 17th). Non Non Byori, Kino's Journey, Rage of Bahamut, and Mob Psycho 100 will be finish up, and we have four new shows that will be taking their place. This is a great time to invite new people to club who have never been, who might have come but fell behind because of school, or just people who like anime.

Anyway, that's it for now. Beam me up, Isaac!

Winter Break, Next Quarter, and Tee-Shirts

Greetings, Minna! Hope you're having a good break!

Fall may have been a busy quarter for you, so you may have not been able to come to club as often as you would have liked. Or maybe you were coming to club at the beginning of the year, and then projects/homework/studying got in the way. Well fear not! Winter break is the perfect opportunity to catch up on anime! Below are the episodes we will be starting on.

  • Angelic Layer: Episode 8
  • Ouran High School Host Club: Episode 8
  • Non Non Byori: Episode 8
  • Kino's Journey: Episode 8
  • Rage of Bahamut: Episode 9
  • Mob Psycho: Episode 8
  • Samurai Champloo: Episode 8

New Shows

In February, we'll be starting new shows. Some of the shows we are currently watching only consist of twelve episodes, and when those shows are done, new twelve-episode shows will join the ranks with Angelic Layer, Ouran High School Host Club, and Samurai Champloo. These shows are:

  • Sweetness and Lightning: A cute show about a father and his daughter on the hunt for good food.
  • Humanity has Declined: A girl must act as the ambassador to a group of fairies who love sweets.
  • Kekkai Sensen: A normal boy is recruited into a secret organization where no one is normal.
  • Tokyo Magnitude 8.0: A girl and her little brother must try to find their way home after an earthquake rocks Tokyo.

Tee-Shirt Contest

It's not for a while, but just wanted to get the word out about our tee-shirt contest. Each year, the club has a tee-shirt that the members can help create. The front has the standard Minna logo, and the back has a custom image one of our members creates. Check out previous examples here, and find a list of the rules here.

Hope to see you back in January! Until then, beam me up, Isaac!

Goshi and Double Feature!

Greetings Minna! How's everyone's break going? Ready for the chaos that is Dead Week?

But amidst all the stress of studying, we have a stress-breaker for you! This coming Saturday (12/2), we have a double feature of Nasuca of the Valley of the Wind and Jin Roh: The Wolf Brigade!

The following day, we have our quarterly Goshi Dinner. This is when we head to one of the best Japanese restaurants in town and have a chance to relax before the chaos of finals is unleashed. You can sign up with the link in the sidebar or here. Signups close this coming Wednesday, and you'll need to get the money in to our wonder treasurer (David Le) by Saturday.

Night of Nekos: Halloween Party 2017

Good afternoon, Minna! This is your Webmaster Hannah!

Our Halloween party is quickly approaching! Contests, games, and a ton of other fun activities await, and there are some pretty good prizes up for grabs, if I do say so myself.

It's not too late to sign up for Anime Eyes and Trivia, so sign up here if you want to have fun. Also sign up for our Game Tournament! What is it? Well, I'm still not gonna tell you! That's for you to find out the day of, so that no one has an unfair advantage! X]P

Also, you have until Thursday to turn in pictures for the Scavenger Hunt, and you can find the categories we're looking for here. Literal or hilarious interpretations are welcome!

That's all for now, Minna. Hopefully your Webmaster won't be a corpse come Saturday. In the meantime, beam me up Isaac!

Edit as of Wednesday: Your Webmaster will most likely be dead come Saturday. Please remember me, and I'll gift my anime and manga to club... XP

Night of Fright, Night of Nekos, Halloween Party 2017

Greetings Minna no Anime! This is your Webmaster Hannah!

It's that time of year when black cats are watching from fenceposts, corn mazes are traversed during the day unless you want a scare, and anime fanatics are gathering in the night at Baker Science for our yearly Halloween Party!

We have a number of different activities for you to participate in, and hopefully more than one will catch your eye!

Important Info!

All contests we do have a prize to be won at the end, and as you participate, you can accumulate points that qualify you for the final, grand prize! However, if you aren’t a member, you can’t win these prizes. But it’s no problem to become a member, just talk to our Secretary Michael or find out more information here

Also, our scavenger hunt and art/pumpkin contests do not require you to be present to win.

And...dun dun dun! Here you can find a full schedule for the very exciting day!

Stuff to Do:

First, we have Anime Trivia! This game is based on Jeopardy, with questions in different categories worth different numbers of points. Show how much you know! Maybe there will be a category of famous dogs, or you’ll have to identify the opening theme of an anime. Or maybe I'm just pulling your leg and none of those will be on the screen come the 28th. (*cue evil laughter* >:] ). And although listening to everyone screaming out their answers is entertaining in it’s own way, we have buttons that you can push, causing more organized chaos.

Another contest we have is Anime Eyes, where you can earn points by identifying characters from various animes produced over the years. Some of these might be pretty common, like from Pokemon (with a dozen Ditto or so), or from some obscure show that only makes an appearance once a year around Halloween time. We use the same system as with Anime Trivia, because pushing buttons is just so "easy"

For both of these, if you’ve never played before, you can sign up for a later slot, so you can watch and learn how it’s done. ;)

Another contest that involves buttons (but many more buttons) is the Video Games tournament. Fight to the death for the great prize, but what game is it you may ask? Well, I’m not gonna tell you! You may have played it, you may have not, but we’re not gonna tell so that everyone will have equal footing when the time comes.

Cosplay Contest! Kinda self-explanatory, but you don’t have to dress up as anime. Video games are fine too. :)

Pumpkins and Art Contest are fused together this year, for special 3-D and 2-D art appreciation (as someone who is taking an art class right now, the words 'art appreciation' makes me shudder ever so slightly). Now…let it be known that the art MUST BE YOUR OWN, ORIGINAL PIECE. I could go on, but shall leave it at that. - -

Starting this year, we are bringing back the Scavenger Hunt. This is something you can prep ahead of time. Go around with your camera and be creative, taking photos from categories on this list. Literal, funny, or ironic interpretations of the categories are all welcome. Send the pictures in to the officer at minna-no-anime@minnanoanime.org, bring them in on a flashdrive, or share with google drive. The choice is yours.

Interested in participating in any of these activities? Sign up HERE!!! :D

Hmmmm...that's all I can think of for now. In the meantime, beam me up, Isaac!
