Showing Picks for Thursdays!

Last week, you chose the weekly showing format, and voted from the pool of nominations. From this, you picked our showings for this semester– each week, we will watch the following:

Shows don’t necessarily need to be in this order: if you want a show aired earlier or later in the meeting, let us know and we’ll check if people in club are okay with that.

Remember that if you can’t make it to the meeting but still have free time, you can join us on Rabb.it/Discord.

Meeting times will be from 4:00p-7:00p in Kuykendall Hall 210. Check our calendar for a more detailed look at our meetings and events.

First Meetings 9/6 and 9/7 in Kuykendall 210, Rabb.it Online Showings

Our first meetings for this semester are upon us! Join us in Kuykendall 210 on Thursday and Friday.
Here’s an overview:

  • At Thursday Meetings we will air full or almost full series that everyone picks to watch. NOTE that there are two rounds of voting, one in the Facebook poll (going on now) and one this Thursday by the people present in club which is pooled from that Facebook poll.
    If you want to nominate stuff for the voting pool on Thursday, be sure to add your stuff here! We will close it up on Wednesday 9/5, midnight.

  • Friday Meetings are open days. At the very least, we’ll watch stuff, but we plan to do additional events alongside the showings such as tabletop and video gaming (PC and Console!) and the like.
    For any showings on Friday– people pick a show to watch three episodes of on that day in club. Once a show is picked, the club must watch three episodes of it, and it cannot be watched again for the rest of the semester. Same rules apply except the “no reruns” and “no shows with more than 26 episodes” rules. Have something you want people to get into? Show it to our club!

We are planning on supplementing our meetings and showings with an online service called Rabb.it. If you’re unable to make it to the meeting, you can tune in from anywhere, and you can also join in on the online chat room!

Anime Ohana Festival (AOFest)

In the past year, the Anime Manga Society has been working with Meta Human Entertainment to help them put together an anime/geek culture convention at UH. Called Anime Ohana Festival (AO Fest), it will be held on June 23rd at the UH Manoa Campus Center. They will feature a host of local guests, and are also currently in the process of seeking Justin Roiland (Rick and Morty, Adventure Time) and others from abroad.

If you could get anyone to come to AO Fest (or any anime convention), who would YOU want to see? We’ve got a fun little poll up that you can participate in– list anyone you want, and you might get your wish granted!

Welcome Back from Spring Break! Officer Nominations and End of the Year Party

Hey all! We hope you had a relaxing Spring Break. We will be back this week with the second and third OVAs of Girls and Panzer, 14-15 of The Ancient Magus’ Bride, and 9-10 of Death March.

Also, FYI:

  • We’re holding our Officer Nomination Poll to pick AMS officers for Fall 2018 – Spring 2019! If you feel that you or someone else you know in club would be an exceptional officer, you can fill out the nomination form here! Officers who help to run the Anime Manga Society will get free paid membership perks during the time they serve.
  • Our End of the Year Potluck Party is set for Friday, April 27th! You can view the event page here to RSVP.
  • If you attended our Girl’s Day/Hinamatsuri Party on March 16th and have any comments or suggestions, write something in our feedback form to tell us what you think.

Girl’s Day (Hinamatsuri) Party!

This Friday, we will be having our annual Girl’s Day (Hinamatsuri) party! So instead of our usual Fresh Friday showings, things will be a little different – girls get to control the showings, and guys bring food! We will also be having some fun activities, so feel free to bring friends along as well!

If you have any questions, go and ask your Female VP and Representative, Beverly Quock (bquock@hawaii.edu).

The event will be from 4:30p to 10:00p in our usual room, Kuykendall 210. We hope you see you there!

KawaiiKon Artist Alley – Thank You Artists and Volunteers!

Hello everyone, we hope you had fun at KawaiiKon 2018!

I would like to give a big thank you to all of the artists and volunteers that helped to put together our artist alley booth this year. It looked amazing!

This is the first time that we’ve gone for an “open” booth format for artists in our club. We’re thinking about making Artists@AMS a yearly opportunity at KawaiiKon Artist Alleys– if you missed out this year don’t worry, we’ll definitely do this again in 2019, and maybe even at other events too!

Of course, our weekly showing meetings will resume this Thursday and Friday.
またね!
