Hello, and welcome to the Genshiken Anime Club's new blog. Here you will find updates on our schedules and upcoming club-related events. Our first meeting will be tonight in the usual place and time, 6:00pm in the Center for the Sciences in room 91120.
As for what's on our viewing schedule, we'll be kicking off the semester with the following:
PUELLA MAGI MADOKA MAGICA (ep. 1 & 2)
- One of the more unique anime series of the current season. This show promises to explore and breakdown the magical girl genre. Don't let the cute images fool you, this show gets quite dark. From Studio Shaft (Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Bakemonogatari)
TOUCH (ep. 1)
- A classic anime series based on the legendary manga by Mitsuru Adachi (Katsu!, Cross Game, Q and A). This one's rarely seen, or heard of for that matter, in the U.S. It tells the story about two twins and their relationship with their next door neighbor. Oh, and there's baseball too! Fun fact, Touch was one of the highest rated television shows in Japan's history when it was originally broadcast in 1985.
KNIGHTS OF LAMUNE (ep. 1)
- The tale of a young boy whose destiny is to lead a group of knights in a mystical land that happens to be located in the NES game he just beat. (I've been meaning to show this one for quite some time :)
- And last but most certainly not least, we have AMV Hell 5. For those of you who are new to the concept of AMV Hell, think of it as Robot Chicken but with anime clips. Those of you who were with us last semester remember we had a few technical difficulties and were forced to watch AMV Hell 5 on Youtube...where we experienced more technical difficulties. Well now we have a much better quality version of AMV Hell 5 that is sure to delight.
See you tonight!
