Next Propeller Anime Club meeting on Saturday, April 10th!

Man, it looks like we missed April Fools this year. I had some great ideas too! Unfortunately, things in convention land got busy.

This Sunday afternoon we are having a barbecue! It shall be awesome!

Our next club meeting will be on Saturday, April 10th at 1:15 pm in FS3B-113 at Full Sail University! Our main feature will be Cencoroll, a short 30 minute film nearly singlehandedly written, designed, directed, and animated by Atsuya Yuki. It's about a high school boy and his shapeshifting creature named Cenco that he controls with telepathy. Well, I am sure there's more to it than that but I haven't watched it yet!

We are six episodes away from finishing The Guin Saga(or is it The Naris Saga?)! We need to finish this over the next couple meetings so we can move on to something else. A revolt is supposed to happen in Crystal during the next episode and assassins are trying to kill Guin!

In Gungrave, it looks like Harry has been discovered as the real traitor to Millenion, after having many of its valueable members framed and killed. Now it's up to Brandon Heat to take him out! What will happen between these two longtime friends?

We have plenty of time left this meeting due to the length of Cencoroll. I was considering starting a new series but some of you will be out of town due to spring break and it'd suck for people to be lost if they missed opening episodes to a new series. So to fill in the space, I thought of something more digestable...

Now here's a little blast from the past. Remember Rurouni Kenshin on Toonami? That was a pretty fun, light hearted tale about a wandering samurai who atoned for past sins by helping those around him and vowing never to kill again. He had a "X" shaped scar on his cheek and carried a reverse blade sword.

For those who saw and never knew of Himura Kenshin's past, an OVA was made called Rurouni Kenshin: Romantic Tales from the Meiji Era(or Samurai X: Trust & Betrayal) that details Kenshin's days as the Battousai. This OVA is regarded as one of the best ever made. It has great drama and action and is one of the few anime out there that delve into the psychological effects that one experiences after killing(which there will be a lot of).

We'll watch the first half of the OVA this meeting and the other half the following meeting. It will be good times! Lots of great stuff next meeting! See you all soon!
