The next Propeller Anime Club meeting will be on Sunday, November 21st at 1pm in FS3B-113 at Full Sail University! This meeting will be most exciting because a mostly overlooked classic will be our feature! Not only that, but we start another short OVA series while continuing some others!
I didn't do a recap for the last meeting but fun was had! We finished Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 and nobody laughed that time! Not only that, we ventured from the 2000 OVA of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure to the 1993 one, and it was awesome!
Next meeting, our feature will be Royal Space Force: Wings of Honneamise! This is actually the first commercial work of Gainax and perhaps their greatest. It is set in an alternate world during a space race starring an unmotivated young man who is billed as a hero when he becomes the next candidate astronaut to be sent into space. (All others have died.) Here's a good trailer!
The animation is beautiful and a lot of attention is put into building the unique world this movie takes place in. Moreover, many of the things done in the movie have never been done before in anime and have yet to be duplicated.
It's almost hard to believe that a lot of the work done on this movie was done by college students and recent graduates who got funding because they made an animated short for science fiction convention in Japan. With that said, this movie will be shown as a means to inspire many of you who are students right now because it is never too early to make something awesome!
What else are we showing? We'll continue Golden Boy, the story of a young man who is a genius that travels Japan solving critical problems on his journeys as a student of life. He'll get into trouble many times since he is a pervert and there will be fanservice, but not of 12 year old girls like you would see in modern anime. If you missed it last meeting, do not worry because the show is very episodic and you don't even need to see the first episode to get any of the others.
Also, we will be showing Jojo's Bizarre Adventure!!!!! Why all the exclamation points, you wonder? Well, we get to see Jotaro and Iggy - who is a dog AND a powerful stand user - team up to take on Geb, the latest of obstacles set by Dio. But that is not all! The episode after that has one of the MANLIEST moments in all of anime. Everyone MUST see it! You can bet your life that it will be awesome.
Last but not least is the final new series we will show this year, Bastard!! It's a dark fantasy tale about a strong wizard who was sealed in the body of a 14 year old boy who is unsealed to fight the Four Lords of Havok that he once led! The wizard Dark Schneider is such a pimp and a badass that it's hard to believe that this anime was based on a Shonen Jump manga.
