This week's Club Rush was a big hit. We managed to give away all of our plushies. I'd like to thank everyone who participated this semester. Looks like we'll be having a few extra people this week. By the way, I would just like to everyone know that although we have an idea of what kind of shows we want the screen this semester we could always use some help and are always open for suggestions. This Friday's schedule will be:
PUELLA MAGI MADOKA MAGICA (Ep. 3)
- This is episode of Studio Shaft's (Bakemonogatari, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei) twisted take on the magical girl genre caused quite a stir. In fact it's become so controversial that the entire franchise is now facing a possible cancellation. Better enjoy it while we can.
GENSHIKEN (Ep. 1)
- I don't think we could could call ourselves Genshiken without paying tribute to our namesake. After all, it's a series about an Japanese media college club. I think we can relate to this one.
LEVEL E (Ep. 1)
- Wouldn't it suck if you moved into your new apartment only to find some guy wearing your clothes who claims to be an alien who intends to freeload off you? Based on the manga by Yoshihiro Togashi (Yu Yu Hakusho, Hunter X Hunter)
3000 LEAGUES IN SEARCH OF MOTHER (Ep. 1)
- The story of a little boy who leaves his home of Italy to search for his mother in Argentina. This classic anime series was directed by Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata (Only Yesterday, Grave of the Fireflies) and among his staff was the legendary Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke)
URUSEI YATSURA: THE BEAUTIFUL DREAMER
- Director Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell, The Sky Crawlers) turns Rumiko Takahashi's (Inuyasha, Ranma 1/2, Maison Ikkoku) goofball harem comedy and turns it into one of the most deceivingly thought-provoking anime films ever made.
See you Friday! Same time same place.
