When do you meet?
3:30pm, 2nd Friday of each month (unless there is an anime night or con night)
The Anime Manga Club meets to discuss anime and manga as well as video-games (most of the club time we either have people put in suggestions for new manga and anime they would like to see at the library to be able to check out) we always have food at every one of our meetings. Usually its Ramen, cookies, and pocky, for Christmas we had Japanese Christmas cake and other sweets. For conventions or anime nights the club provides rice balls and other common Japanese treats. All food and drinks are free =]
Our club has about 30 members who attend regularly, (about 100 people showed up to Animinicon though, which is always held in July) Members also frequently cosplay during meets and more often for Anime Nights or Animinicon. Anime Nights usually feature an array of game tournaments, card game tournaments, and “Anime Underground” a compilation of funny anime clips, abridged series clips, new Japanese technology, new video game trailers, anime openings, and popular Japanese songs/videos.
When you enter the door to come in for an Anime Night or Animinicon, usually an array of Japanese music/anime openings will be playing. We also hosted a mini rave during an Anime Night which included free glow sticks and our own DJ. We also have Japanese Food Tasting, Manga Discussions, Video-gaming tournaments, Drawing Contests, name that anime opening, Card Game tournaments, Cosplay Contests.
We are open to all Ages 12+
