PROPELLER ANIME ENTERS ITS SIXTH YEAR!
Our next meeting will be Sunday, October 23rd at 2:00PM at Full Sail University in Building 3F, room FS3F-121. The address of the campus is 3300 University Blvd Winter Park, FL 32792. An interactive campus map can be found here and building map here.
You do not have to be a student to attend the meeting but it makes it easier to enter the building. You may also come whenever you can. (we check the entrance between episodes for late arrivals.)
Last time we picked three anime series that we will watch for the rest of this year! They are Deadman Wonderland, Nichijou, and Umineko no Naku Koro ni.
Deadman Wonderland is a high-security prison that features inmates competing in deadly games that the public can watch for entertainment. A Japanese high school student is framed for the murder of his entire class and sent to Deadman Wonderland. With death at every turn, Ganta Igarashi does whatever it takes to win and survive.
Nichijou is about cute girls doing cute things and being naive and innocent about it. The won a unanimous vote from our club during the final elimination round. This is a moe show but far more entertaining and the animation is nicer than the standard. Each episode contains four short stories and you can jump in at any time.
Umineko no Naku Koro ni translates to "When the Seagulls Cry" and is part of the Higurashi franchise. A rich family takes a vacation on a secluded island with a mansion and everything. Members of the family disappear and are found slaughtered in a cave. Now the rest of the family must find out what happened to them so they can survive!
We'll be starting at episode 3 of each series on the 23rd for those that may wish to catch up.
Our feature, held at the end of the meeting, will be the first three episodes of Denno Coil. Above is a clip from episode 2!
As for Tiger & Bunny, we'll be watching that as a "pre-game" before the meetings so if you want to watch that, show up an hour early. We've made it through the first 15 episodes of the series.
See you this Sunday!
