Anime Nite! Ghibli Month with the Anime Debate Tournament! (2/10)

“With Studio Ghibli’s latest film, “The Secret World of Arrietty” coming to theaters throughout America on February 17th, Propeller Anime wants to show fans some really good Studio Ghibli movies.  We have declared our February events at A Comic Shop to be “Ghibli Month!”


That means that our Anime Nite @ The Geek Easy on Friday, February 10th will feature a great movie Studio Ghibli created! We’ll bring in a bunch of their movies and use a process of figuring out what you guys haven’t seen to determine what we will show!

But before that, we’ll get down to event we did a year ago at MegaCon… the Anime Debate Tournament!

Up to six teams of three will fiercely compete in a debate tournament on tongue-in-cheek topics relating to Japanese anime and manga fandom.

If you love to argue, this is your chance to show off your skills for prizes including the ultimate geek reward: satisfaction in always being right!  RSVP on Facebook.

Dodgeball Before Dishonor recap!

Yesterday, we gathered at Ward Park to play some dodgeball! It was a modest turnout but it was a lot of fun and great exercise. We had enough people to form two solid teams and change the lineups around a bit to keep things fresh.

(Next time we should invite people who wouldn't want to play but wouldn't mind chasing dodgeballs that go out of bounds!)

We'd like to do this again with a bigger turnout. It was a really great day out to play and we don't get a lot of those in Florida.  We have a gallery with more photo on our FaceBook that you can check out here.

We'd love to do this again in the future, and perhaps we will after we wrap up all our events at MegaCon. Propeller Anime will be having their first meeting at A Comic Shop on January, 28th at 4PM so we'll talk about these things and more so make sure you come out!

Propeller Anime's stance with A Comic Shop on the "Robama" ad

Hello good people that have an interest in animation produced in Japan. If you have been active on anime news sites in the past 48 hours, then by now you have seen A Comic Shop's controversial "Robama" ad that was targeted at manga owners in attempt to get them to try out first issues of DC's new lineup of comics.

Many readers of the stories posted about the "Robama" ad feel many things, mostly negative. One of the biggest accusations is that A Comic Shop as disdain for anime and manga fans and would like to hurt those businesses. That is simply not true.

First Propeller Anime of 2012... at A Comic Shop! (1/28)

The wait is over! A new era begins!

Propeller Anime will be having a meeting on Saturday, January 28th at A Comic Shop at 4:00PM! We've got the place for a few hours to show and talk anime! You can find it across the street from Full Sail University at 114 S. Semoran Blvd Winter Park, FL 32792.

There are a few things we hope to accomplish at the meeting. First and foremost, we want to make sure we all get to know each other.

We're expecting plenty of new faces who weren't able to go to our meetings at Full Sail. This is sort of a reboot of the club so it's best for everyone to get comfortable first.

OMG we're all over MegaCon 2012!

February 17th-19th is MegaCon, Florida's largest comic book, anime, sci-fi and gaming convention. It's gonna be awesome and we'll be there doing events!

Before we get into that, know that you can order tickets in advance here. The event is at the Orange County Convention Center in west Orlando, near the theme parks. You may want to look into reserving a hotel room in the area.

Anyhow, we'll be bringing our big guns to MegaCon this year. The super-popular Ninja Olympics are back and we're making the convention debut of Iron Cardboard Robot Cosplay! We will also have a couple Quickdraw! Contest sessions and even a Karaoke Party!

We also have more than several notable panels from our resident experts. A wide variety of subjects are covered and we hope there is something for everyone!
