No Meeting on July 5th, other July meetings

Due to the 4th of July, we will not be having our regular showing meeting tomorrow. Enjoy the weekend! We’ll be back next week, July 12th.

In lieu of our regular meeting, there will be a mini officer’s briefing at Michi’s Toy Box tomorrow starting 4:30pm. Though this meeting is for officers, any interested club members are also welcome to attend. If you are an officer and cannot make it in person, don’t worry since we can also hop on Discord to discuss things.

We will also be meeting at Ivan’s later during the month on Saturday, July 20th (RSVP, officers and regular members only), which can also function as an officer’s meeting. Stay tuned for more details.

Friday Summer Socials!

Hey everyone! We hope you’re enjoying summer, and had a good Spring semester. We will also have meetings every week during the Summer semesters, every Friday in Kuykendall 210 from 4:30pm-7:00pm. We also usually go to grab food after (-8:30p/9:00p).

What do we do?

Since we’re an anime club, we usually watch anime every week: either shows that we select, random showings, or both. Depending on how many people are there, we may also do other stuff.

Can I game?/I’m a part of MAG (the Manoa Academy of Gaming) or a different club/I just want to hang out with friends, can I join in?

Absolutely! Feel free to join us as well. If you want to play card/board games, go ahead! If you want to game, you can do that too– in fact, if you want to plug in your setups, we can bring multi-outlets to accommodate you in the Kuykendall rooms. We can even bring a projector and stereo speaker to supplement anything you bring.

If you want to do a LAN party, marathon a certain show, or anything else, definitely join our Discord so you can chat with others and ask about it:

Join us at our End-of-the-year Casual Karaoke Potluck!

The end of the year is upon us! As such, we’ll have something fun for our last Friday meeting tomorrow: feel free to join in on a casual potluck and singing session with Vocaluxe/Ultrastar in Kuykendall 209! For those of you going to Avengers: Endgame during the day, we’ll start our thing a bit later in the evening, and go from 5:00p – 10:00p.

Check out the list below for a full catalog of the songs we’ve got:

We can also take Twitch Sings for a test run as well.

Bring some food, and enjoy the music!

KawaiiKon: No Meetings, Pass Pickup, and Artists@AMS!

KawaiiKon is this week, so we will not have any Thursday or Friday meetings. We’ll be right back next week! Enjoy the convention.

If you ordered a pass through our club, you should have received an email with details about pass pickup. If you have ordered one and this is not the case, please let us know.

We will also be showcasing our Artists@AMS Table at the convention as well! Come and check out our booth at table 253 in the Artist’s Alley! Our following artists will be displaying their works:

Open Game Day in the iLab!

Today, we’ll be holding our Open Game Day in the iLab, from 4:30pm-7:30pm! This is a test run to see how holding our game days in there works out, but it’s pretty much exactly what we usually do. As always, feel free to bring your setups, board games, and what ever you feel like to game with us! The iLab comes with some added bonuses as well:

  1. There are up to three TVs that you can use to plug in a console or a laptop
  2. If you’re a part of MAG, you’ll also be able to hop on any of the six fancy gaming PCs in the room
  3. There are plenty of tables for you to set up tabletop games!

As usual, we’ll also go and grab food after, rides permitting. Whether or not you’re a regular at AMS, you’re welcome to join in!

If you need to figure out where the iLab is, it’s the small building right in between Kuykendall and the Art Building, and between two parking lots. You can’t miss it!

March 8th – Switch & Game Day with MAG!

Hey everyone! The Manoa Academy of Gaming (MAG) is having a Switch Day this Friday, March 8th, during which they will hold a casual tournament. Whether you are competing or not, and whether you are a part of MAG or not, you are welcome to join us! We will not be meeting in Kuykendall 209 on Friday– instead, head over to the UH Manoa iLab (Building 37). Festivities will go from 4:30pm– all the way to 11:00pm, with the specific games focused below:

Mario Party – 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm 
https://challonge.com/magparty1
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
https://challonge.com/magkart1
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – 8:30 pm to 11:00 pm
https://challonge.com/magsmash1

If you plan to participate in any of their tournaments, click on any of the links above to get started. Again, you do not need to be a part of MAG to compete!

As usual, the PCs will also be open for use (to MAG members), and I will be bringing my laptop setup and multi-outlets for those of you who aren’t a part of MAG, but are interested in PC-gaming on your own. It’ll be a party!

Also, MAG is interested in borrowing any of the games above, controllers, and/or set ups if you don’t mind them doing so for the event. If you want to, please send them an email at gaming@hawaii.edu with the materials that you would be providing so that they can keep track of them.

Join us at our Post-Valentine’s Day/Single’s Awareness Day Party!

We have our post Valentine’s Day party this Friday from 4:30 to 10:00pm on the second floor of Kuykendall!

As it is a potluck, please bring food or drinks to KUY 208 to share so everyone’s stomachs will be satisfied. Please also bring food that is substantial so we won’t live off saturated fats and chips, thank you (^^). Or, you can help contribute to the chicken nuggies campaign (PM @elder eli on Discord for more information).

We will also have games and karaoke in the other rooms, so come game and sing your hearts out! Come have fun with us, we’ll see you there!

JOIN US at MAG’s first gaming meet!

We’re going to be doing things a little differently this Friday— since the Manoa Academy of Gamers (MAG) will have their first meeting that day (which goes on for longer, from 3:00p-9:00p!), there are people who are a part of both AMS and MAG, and there are some may want to attend the Punahou Carnival, we’ve decided to meet at MAG’s event instead. Idea is still the same– bring ‘yo setups– we’ll see you in the UH Manoa iLab on Friday!

You can learn more about the UH Manoa iLab here.

The UH Manoa iLab is the small structure between Kuykendall and the Art Building, next to the Art Building’s parking lot. Also note that since this event is under MAG, any use of facilities and equipment in the iLab is to be determined by them.

Future Friday meetings are still planned to be held in Kuykendall 209.
