Man, that was a great way to end the quarter! We had exciting finishes to Cromartie High School, Mobile Suit Gundam: The 8th M.S. Team, and FLCL!
We also got to do a test run of Anime Debate Tournament, a new event to be held at this year's MegaCon! We had four teams of three debate over topics such as "Tengen Toppa Gurren Laggan is a manly anime" "Anime needs more black people" and "Vic Mignogna is still a contender to headline conventions and anime."
It was great discussion overall, and we got to refine the rules of the event before it goes live at 5PM this Friday in W224D of the Orange County Convention Center. Sign-ups will be held at our table in front of W224B from 1PM to 4:30PM. You should check out the details and rules of the event here.
We also determined what anime we shall show in April, May, and June. For series, we shall have Record of Lodoss War, Gunbuster vs Diebuster, and Durarara!! For features the club selected Castle of Cagliostro, Legend of Koizumi, One Piece: Baron Omatsuri and the Secret Island, Arcadia of my Youth, Armitage III, and Interstella 5555!
With these, the upcoming showing of REDLINE at the Florida Film Festival in April, and our Anime Nites @ The Geek Easy, it's going to be a great spring! Our first meeting of the next quarter will begin on Sunday, April 3rd!
By the way, if you are going to MegaCon this weekend and have a smart phone with access to twitter, please follow us @PropellerAnime so you can get full updates on our events at the convention!
