Hey all. My name is Brian Kroger. I am a 3rd year physics major and I am the Minna no Anime president. My job is to coordinate and schedule most activities of club and Lead the meeting for the officer ship. I have been watching anime since sixth grade (Naruto and bleach) but heavily delved into it during my freshman year of high school where I expanded outward from Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece. I also deeply enjoy videogames with team play, board games, and table top RGP’s. I joined club to meet nice people and have fun which I have done for the 2 years I have been in club. I hope to help keep club a fun place to hang out with friends and have a good time.

Hope to have a fun year with you all!

Hi, I’m Andrew, I am a 2nd year Political Science Major from San Diego (I live 5 min north of Qualcomm Stadium). This is my second year in the club and only my third year into anime as a medium. Besides anime I am a big fan of watching movies of all types, some of my favorites include Dr. Strangelove, Casablanca, Blade Runner and so many more. Besides eastern animation I am a huge fan and consumer of television westerns works including Mad Men, The Wire and most recently Netflix’s Bojack Horseman. Other things about me, let’s see, my favorite video games are Fallout, KSP and some of the Zelda games. I am a history buff. I have a lot of experience with camping and backpacking, it’s one of my favorite activities, I don’t have the opportunity do it as much as I want to. Zion National Park is my favorite place in the world. I do like music, a lot. I figure there isn’t much to say about anime, check out my MAL, talk to me in Club, I talk a lot. I often come across as cynical of the things I find generic but do have an open mind, I promise.

Hi, I'm Curtis. This is going to be the second year I've been a Minna no Anime officer. Last year I was the secretary, and this time I decided to try my hand at treasurer. My mother thinks I'm pretty neat. If you're reading this, based on one anecdote and zero pieces of real data, I'm going to assume you're thinking about showing up to the club for the first time. If so, welcome. Club is more fun if you talk to people, so join a conversation. Many of us will shout excitedly, but none of us bite. I used to tell people I liked anime that were stylish and had a strong character focus. This is probably mostly still true, but each of my 10/10 shows are in entirely different genres, so I don't know any more. As well as anime, I'm fond of my major (Computer Science), board games, video games, indie music, literature, and tabletop RPGs (like Dungeons and Dragons). If you're interested in tabletop RPGs, there's usually a new campaign of Minna people starting at the beginning of each quarter, starting as soon as club ends. Ask me about it, I'm the one with the cash box. In fact, feel free to talk to me in general. I like getting to know people and if I can offload the responsibility of starting a conversation with someone I don't know well, all the better :p.

Secretary: Kevin McKinnis
Favorite Anime: Shiki, Skip Beat, and Working

Hi I'm Kevin McKinnis, our current club Secretary, which means I'm mostly in charge of communication to club members. I'm a fourth year computer science major that will be here for five, and I have been in club since my sophomore year. I have not seen as many anime as most of our current officers, but I have read a large amount of manga, so if you bring one up that you are currently in to I may have an opinion on it. If not, I'm always looking for new manga anyways. I also enjoy video games and sudoku. If I had to name my favorite anime, they would probably be Shiki, Skip Beat, and Working!! (all seasons). If you have any questions about the email list or just general club questions in general, feel free to seek me out and I'll be happy to help, as I want everyone to enjoy the club as much as I do.

Webmaster: Hannah Wilkins
Favorite Anime: Kaze No Stigma, Haikyuu!, Yona of the Dawn, Noragami, Rokka-Braves of the Flower
Favorite Manga: From Far Away, Black Cat, Dengeki Daisy, Psyren

Hello there! My name’s Hannah Wilkins, and I’m a second year Graphic Communications major (and also a second year Minna Member). I’ll be the webmaster for this year, and that means I’m in charge of keeping the website up-to-date and other technical stuff like getting Goshi orders set up, etc. I am a huge Pokémon fan (games, Adventures manga, not anime so much, fanfictions). I am not ashamed.

I’m more of a reader, so manga is more up my alley, but I’m not going to turn down an anime (especially if it’s a good one!) *cheer* I don’t watch as much anime as I’d like to, though. *sad face* If you love to write or draw, come see me and we can chat!! I love ANYTHING Japanese, and can’t wait hope that everyone has a great year! Anime is MUCH more fun with more people to share the laughing, crying, and cursing, and we welcome anyone! :D

Club Artist: Emily Mullins
Favorite Anime: Neon Genesis Evangelion, Tokyo Ghoul, No. 6

Hey, I’m the club artist for this particular school year! My job is mostly dealing with anything graphics-related that the club might need, especially creating the posters that get put up every Saturday detailing that day’s anime schedule. I myself am a 4th year computer science major who’s interested in art as well. Video games are sort of my main hobby, particularly Nintendo series such as Legend of Zelda and Fire Emblem, and I could talk your ear off about them if you so happen to be interested in that sort of conversation. When I do actually find myself sitting down to watch anime, it’s very often something with large robots, a fantasy setting, or both; the only real requirement is that it’s pretty fast-paced. Regardless, hope this year will be fun for everyone!
