Next Propeller Anime Club meeting on Sunday, May 22nd!

Our next meeting of Propeller Anime Club will be one of the most important yet! It will be in FS3F-112 at Full Sail's building 3F on Sunday, May 22nd at 1PM!

With Gunbuster finished, we have leveled up once again as anime fans! However, new challenges await us! It's time to take our first trip together into the Leijiverse!

For those who do not know, Leiji Matsumoto is one of Japan's most accomplished creators. He has created  groundbreaking works such as Space Battleship Yamato, Galaxy Express 999, and most relevant today: Space Pirate Captain Harlock! Some of you youngins may be more familiar with his work on Daft Punk's music videos. The center of the Leijiverse is the prequel to Captain Harlock, known as Arcadia of my Youth.

From ANN:

The Earth has been conquered by the evil Illumidus Empire with parallels drawn to the post WWII occupation of Japan. Captain Harlock with a group that will become his life long friends begin their fight against this tyranny visited upon the planet earth with no regard to the costs the struggle will have on them, caring only for the ideal of restoring freedom to the people of earth.

Planned Schedule

1:00PM - Introduction and News
1:10PM - Record of Lodoss War 7 & 8
2:00PM - Diebuster 1 & 2
3:00PM - Intermission(This means hang out, get food, etc.)
3:25PM - Durarara! 7 & 8
4:20PM - Arcadia of my Youth

But that's not all! We'll be debuting a new anime series to watch!
A spiritual sequel to Gunbuster, Diebuster comes from Gainax. It debuted 15 years after Gunbuster was released.  Directed by Kazuya Tsurumaki(FLCL, End of Evangelion), Diebuster is a new story about cute girls who pilot robots and fight invading aliens. I've been told that there is some FLCL influence in this series and we shall determine that soon!

In Record of Lodoss War, Parn has been trained by Lord Cashew and has been brought in to serve King Faan as one of his Holy Knights. A war is about to start between Faan and Emperor Beld, former members of the "Six Heroes" that defeated a demon god 30 years ago. It's a classic struggle between good and evil, but who will survive?

In Durarara!! a plot begins to unravel in the town of Ikebukuro. Celty has dreams about finding her head and thoughts about whether she loves Shinra. Shizuo Heiwajima has a whole episode dedicated to him being a bad-ass dude and having flashbacks about his brother.

That's it for now. We'll have some news on Anime Festival Orlando and Florida Anime Experience soon so check those out!
