Show Viewing, this Saturday 3/2

Brett Slowinski
Position: President

Hello, I’m Brett Slowinski and I just so happen to be the Commander in Chief of this club. I’m a 4th year business student concentrating in accounting and spent most of my life growing up in the SLO area. The first anime I recall watching was DBZ Kai in 3rd grade, though it unfortunately wouldn’t be the last given my current position. All jokes aside, I swear I’m a functioning member of society outside of this club who enjoys many hobbies such as vinyl record collecting, stargazing with my telescope (feat. the cal poly astronomy club), hammocking, playing video games and going to Grateful Dead concerts.

When it comes to anime, I tend to favor those with action, psychological elements, mysteries, memorable characters, and interesting settings. Some of my favorite series are as follows:

Favorite Anime: Trigun, Gintama, One Piece, Casshern Sins, Ranking of Kings, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Bleach, Re: Zero, Full Metal Alchemist Brootherhood and 91 Days.

Favorite Manga: Vinland Saga, Kingdom, Steel Ball Run, Akametsu, D.Gray-man, One Piece, Blue Lock, Gachiakuta, and Golden Kamuy.

Favorite Manhua/Webtoons: Omniscient Reader’s Viewpoint, Solo Leveling, Gosu (The Master), SSS. Class Suicide Hunter, Dimensional Mercenary, and Legend of the Northern Blade.

Ethan Robson
Position: Vice President

In the secluded realm of Murim, I, Ethan, grew up in a serene village, enthralled by tales of legendary cultivators. Raised amidst these stories, I yearned for a life beyond the ordinary, drawn to the hidden world's mysteries.

Destiny intervened when I stumbled upon an ancient scroll nestled within the forest. Its diagrams and text whispered of Qi, martial arts, and cultivation techniques—secrets waiting to be unveiled.

Guided by the enigmatic Master Yun, I delved into the teachings of Murim sects. Under his watchful eye, I refined my Qi, honed combat skills, and formed unbreakable bonds with fellow disciples. Each trial and battle propelled me forward, my humility unwavering.

The peak of my journey arrived at the Martial Grand Tournament, a stage for the realm's finest. Faced with daunting foes, the final duel pushed me to my limits. Emerging victorious, I earned the esteemed title of Martial Master—a stepping stone, not an end.

As a Martial Master, I united clans, disseminated ancient knowledge, and sought the realm's ultimate truths. My journey became a beacon, inspiring others to embark on their own paths, forever shaping Murim's destiny.

My tale speaks of determination, mentorship, and the unyielding spirit that propels us forward. From a tranquil upbringing to achieving Martial Mastery, my odyssey carved a path that echoed throughout the Murim realm.

Isai Villanueva
Position: Event Coordinator

Hey everyone my name is Isai. I’m originally from Sacramento where I graduated from a community college while in high school. This year will be my second year at Cal Poly studying Aerospace Engineering. My interest in aviation began when I was in high school. I have two of my pilots licenses (gliders and single engine land), and will be pursuing my instrument rating this year.

I spend most of my time watching vtubers. I am a huge Hololive fan, and my favorites are Ninomae Ina’nis, Kaela Kovalskia, and Nachoneko. I do play a couple games and like to watch anime. My favorite games are probably first person shooters. Over the summer and during the school year I played a lot of COD zombies and Splatoon 3. You may hear people say that I am good at Super Smash Bros, but I am honestly not that good. I don’t watch as much anime as I used to, but I’m starting to watch more over time. Here’s my MAL profile if you’d like to see what I’ve watched: https://myanimelist.net/profile/SolFly.
