Yesterday had much longer of a meeting than planned, but it was good times! For the opening part of the meeting, we talked about George's departure and I discussed idea for Megacon guests(since Anime Sushi asked me to). I am still up for ideas since the meeting for proposing guests won't be until this weekend.
We also finalized the time and location for Ultimate Gaming Showdown III! It will be on Sunday, October 11th in FS3B-113! Games for tournament play will include Mario Kart 64, Goldeneye 007, the original Super Smash Bros., Street Fighter II: Turbo, and Sonic the Hedgehog 3's race mode! It's a very classic setup and fun times should be had by all! We will probably have some games setup for casual play as well. More on that later!
We finally finished Outlaw Star. It was an excellent ending with a Mexican Standoff thrown in for fun. It really takes a long time for us to go through a series and I believe we started on this show during the spring. We found out about the Galactic Leyline and Gene finally confessed his feelings for Melfina and teamed up to take down Lord Hazanko.
I thought that Harry MacDougal also had some good finally moments before his physical form was brutally destroyed. The series ends with a possibility for a sequel; however, one never happened. Instead, there was a spin-off series called Angel Links that I hear is pretty bland.
We also watched more Guin Saga and learned more about Istaval, the Crimson Mercenary. He once was told a prophecy that the princess of light would make him king and then bring darkness. He is not ure if it's Rinda, or the Mongauli princess Amnelis. One thing is for certain is that his rebelious loner attitude does bring some trouble to the group. He kind of reminds me of the most recent Prince of Persia.
What is also notable of the episodes we watched is when Guin wrecked a giant river monster with a boat paddle. I think the club is waiting for him to go berserk again like he did in the first episode.
We also watched There will be Brawl, a live-action film noir spoof on the Smash Bros universe. It's pretty entertaining. Maybe next time Luigi will see Captain Falcon and show him his moves!
Finally, we watched the 1986 Fist of the North Star movie. It was awesome! The final battle between Kenshiro and Raoh was all kinds of epic! I look forward to more clasic anime movie showings in the future.
Next club meeting is September 27th!
