First Spring PAC meeting Sunday, April 3rd at 1:00PM!

Hey anime fans! Did you like how we rolled at MegaCon!? We hope you had fun! We have a bunch to wrap up in regards to that but we do want to get back to showing off some cool anime! Our first meeting of the Spring quarter will be on Sunday, April 3rd at 1PM at Full Sail University in FS3F-112 in Building 3F! (Near Wendy's)

For those who've never been to a PAC meeting, it's free and we watch a bunch of anime and have some lively discussions about what we watch. Since MegaCon just finished, there will be much to discuss about the weekend. We show several on-going series, followed by a feature to wrap up the meeting in an awesome way!

Speaking of features, we will be showing the first movie Hayao Miyazaki ever directed, and that will be Castle of Cagliostro! It stars the cast of Lupin III going for another caper that deals with an evil baron and his plans to produce high quality counterfeit bills from all the major nations, all while forcefully marrying a girl that has caught Lupin's eye!

But that is not all! We start watching three series this meeting! We have the fantasy classic, Record of Lodoss War, which is essentially a Dungeons and Dragons campaign. Then there is Gainax's stylish mecha classic Gunbuster, and then we have a newer series that fans of Baccano! should like in Durarara!!

Created by Baccano's Ryohgo Barita, Durarara!! is about a dullahan working as an underworld courier in Ikebukuro, Japan, an internet-based anonymous gang called Dollars, and the chaos that unfolds around the most dangerous people in Ikebukuro.

Planned Schedule
1:00PM - Introductions and MegaCon discussion
1:15PM - Record of Lodoss War 1 & 2
2:05PM - Gunbuster 1 & 2
3:10PM - Intermission (This means hang out, get food, etc.)
3:35PM - Durarara!! 1 & 2
4:25PM - Castle of Cagliostro

As always, feel free to come in forever you want to see! We have a lot of great stuff lined up! Also, check out our next Anime Nite @ The Geek Easy!


  1. Hey. I was trying to remember the name of a movie you mentioned at the Classic Anime panel (and trying to remember all the anime I thought looked interesting in general).
    I think I remember something being said about the presentation being put up here?
    Else, if not, it was a movie about a woman who goes to the country on vacation, and it was about her and her younger self. I remember it being described as a coming of age story, sort of thing.
    Not super descriptive, but, it's all I got.


  2. I believe you are talkng about Isao Takahata's "Only Yesterday." It's a Studio Ghibli film.

    You might also be thinking of Satoshi Kon's "Millenium Actress."
