Recap of the last meeting! 2/5/11 edition!

Last meeting was very sweet! Literally! We had brownies, candy, cupcakes, and caramel-filled cake. And punch too! Gotta have punch. We had a couple big things to celebrate!

For those who still don't know, we beat Anime Spot in dodgeball 3 games to 1 this past Saturday, thus making us the supreme anime club in Orlando! We did some casuals after and it started to rain. We also had a couple games to show off from the Global Game Jam that some of our club members worked on. They made some pretty rad stuff in 48 hours!

We'll have what video we have of the games up in the future, but right now you can download the games worked on by Steven C, Erik B, Dustin J, Jordan J, Kassandra L, and Michael D. (With the master plan.)

Good job guys! If anyone else has collaborative projects to show off, whether they are games, artwork, short films, or AMVs, let me know so I can schedule them in for meetings! 

We also talked a bit about MegaCon, taking place March 25th - 27th in Orlando, Florida at the Orange County Convention Center. I showed you guys a scary convention video filled with dumbasses but don't worry, MegaCon will still be rad. We have a ton of awesome events there too so please come out and support us! And tell your friends!

In the future, we'll highlight our major events at MegaCon and some of the other things in the Anime Events Track you should also check out!

Awesome stuff was seen and we are halfway through all of our series! In Cromartie High, we got to see the glory that is the MechzawaCycle and Takenouchi ended up in America when he conspired with luchadore criminals to hijack an airplane!

Aina of Zeon and Shira of the Earth Federation have reunited in fierce battle in Mobile Suit Gundam: The 8th M.S. Team! Will their love blossom? (Also, a manly headbutt was delivered in a Zeon prison cell. Hell yeah!)

Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage was pretty crazy! Revy, Eda, and the rest of Lagoon Company fought of many bounty hunters including a gothic lolita chainsaw freak, a rotund pyromaniac, the blade-wielding Shenhua("lovingly" called "Chinglish" by Revy), and a so-called wizard who likes grand entrances! And don't forget the cowboy from Florida! Yeah, those were a couple of awesome episodes.

Last but not least, we showed Robot Carnival. Oh man, what a treat that was. Nine animated robot-themed shorts from people that were already masters of Japanese animation or were on the path to becoming so.

It featured directors such as Katsuhiro Otomo(AKIRA), Hiroyuki Kitakubo(Golden Boy), Hiroyuki Kitazume(Zeta Gundam), and Hidetoshi Omori(Bubblegum Crisis), just to name a few. Everyone needs to watch this. Not every short will win you over, but the ones that do will blow you away.

That's it for now! We'll meet again on February 20th! See you then!
