First Meeting: Saturday!?
Posted by: Dominic Mares on 2022-06-01

Welcome back Minna!

We will be starting up our weekly watch schedule this Saturday (9/24)! We'll be meeting in the Silo (03-213) from 5-10 p.m. and will begin the night with introductions/a fun club created game called "Anime Eyes". Because of this, we will not be showing episode 1 of Dragon Pilot until next week and will be starting the night's viewing with Mob Psycho 100. There will be no other deviations from our regular schedule other than this and the schedule will be back to normal next weekend (10/1).

Hope to see you all this Saturday!

-The Officer Team

Week 2: Officer Elections & Speeches
Posted by: Dominic Mares on 2022-04-04

Upcoming Events: Officer Election this Saturday

This Saturday we will be holding officer elections to decide the fate of our club. Speeches will likely take place during the dinner break, and the election process will take place on this very website. You need a membership to vote, but you don’t need one to run, so if you’re still interested, you can fill out this form by Friday and submit a written speech:
As a reminder, speeches are 2-3 minutes, and you just have to talk about yourself and maybe what shows you may nominate for club. Speeches should be less than 4 minutes, so they’re not too hard to write.

Regularly Scheduled Events

Our first hangout of Spring Quarter will be this Thursday on April 7th, so come over to chill and play trivia.

We will of course also be holding our weekly Saturday Meeting and watching these episodes:
5:10 Lupin III: The Italian Adventure Episode 18

Movie Night, Lorne Lanning, and Panels Information!
Posted by: Wesley Deffenbaugh on 2022-02-17

1 day remains!

In leadup to the Minna no Anime 30th Anniversary Party this Friday-Sunday we are going to be touching on some of the events and what to expect this weekend. Today we are bringing you details about: Friday Movie Night, Lorne Lanning Panel, and Club Member Panels!

Friday Day 0 Movie Night

On Friday Night (tomorrow!), after dinner, Club will be watching an anime movie. Which anime movie? That is for the Club to decide! A short list of movies has been pre-determined and during the dinner break vigorous debate and parliamentary democracy will narrow that down to a single film to be watched.

Movie will be starting at (or shortly after) 8:00pm

Special Panel by Lorne Lanning:

Guest Speaker Lanning

Here's some information from @Skelter#6889 (Jon) regarding our upcoming guest speaker, so please read carefully!! "If you hadn't already heard, we've invited a guest speaker (virtually) for Minna no Anime's 30th Anniversary Party! Oddworld game series director Lorne Lanning will be giving us a live Zoom panel on Saturday the 19th from 2 to 3:30 PM on his experience in game design, 3D animation, character design, script writing, voice acting, and special effects. Lanning worked in Hollywood before co-founding Oddworld Inhabitants in downtown San Luis Obispo in 1994, and since then has been credited as the chief director for the Oddworld game series - spanning Abe's Odyssey on the original Playstation to Soulstorm on the PS5. Please fill out this form to help me gauge interest in certain topics and direct the flow of the interview to best fit what most people would like to hear about. Lanning is donating his time and is very knowledgeable in a variety of topics. Hope to see as many of you there as possible to give him a large crowd!"

Please fill this out!


In addition to the panel held by our guest speaker Lorne Lanning, there will also be other panels hosted by members of the club spread throughout the weekend. Take a look at the schedule to see if any of these interest you. Our members put in a lot of work into these panels, so they’re going to be great!

For instance, here are descriptions of the panels!

Anime Credits - What does it all mean?

Ever watched an episode of anime and wondered what those weird moon runes during the song at the end meant? Ever wondered who makes the Japanese cartoons you watch??? Well this is the panel for YOU!!! Minna no Anime’s local nerd guides you through what all these mystical Japanese terms mean.

Shows of Next Year

In a certainly not satirical presentation, come and see which shows club will be watching next year. The full schedule of anime will be revealed in a panel will include a simplistic discussion of how officers determine what makes for a good and bad show in the weekly Saturday club lineup. 30 min.

By Andrew Harris

FanFiction A discussion about fan fiction, it's variety, quality and creativity across the anime-manga fandom. 30 Min
