Our next meeting of Propeller Anime Club will be on Sunday, February 6th at 1:00PM in FS3F-111 in Building 3F of Full Sail University. We have several things to celebrate before we begin watching Japanese cartoons!
First, senior member Zak W. will have a birthday soon. So hopefully he will be at the meeting so we can celebrate that! (I will bake some sweets!)
Next, more than several of our club members participated in the Orlando branch of the Global Game Jam this past weekend. For those not in the know, the GGJ is a worldwide event that lasts for 48 hours. In that time, developers of all types get together and create small labors of love in the form of videogames! So our club members that participated will show their games off!
Finally, we will have to celebrate for our very likely victory in dodgeball that we will gain this Saturday against Anime Spot. The team has been doing some very manly training under my guidance and have become a small army of badasses. Please make sure that you support them this Saturday! Give your spirit to them so they can launch dodgeballs like Genki Dama at their opponents!

Our feature this meeting is the classic anthology, Robot Carnival! In the late eighties, nine of Japan's leading animators were asked to create a short segment that followed the theme of "Robots," for their inclusion in this film.
Essentially, this "movie" is nine short films, all independent of one another. The common element is human interaction with robots, namely the consequences of creating life with one's own hands, played in nine very different ways. One of the director's includes legendary Akira creator Katsuhiro Otomo.
We'll also be showing more of our usual series.
In Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage, the Lagoon Company face off against every bounty hunter in Roanapur to protect a girl who happens to be an expert money counterfeiter.
Things get even crazier in Cromartie High! Mechazawa's little brother gets crushed by Gorilla and Takenouchi ends up switching places with a criminal from America! Get ready for Masked Takenouchi!
And in Mobile Suit Gundam: The 8th M.S. Team, we see the good and bad of Zeon and discover man-faced Karen's tragic past!
That's a lot to look forward to this meeting! See you guys on Sunday!
