Next Meeting

Schedule for Friday, October 19th, 2012

Slot 1Random Slot: Wolf's Rain #1
Original release: 2003
Every couple of weeks, we select a new show to feature in the random slot. If you have a suggestion of something you’d like to see here, let us know!
Slot 2Cardcaptor Sakura #8
Original release: 1998–2000
A classic magical girl series from the late ’90s. When Sakura Kinomoto unintentionally releases a set of magical cards, it is up to her to set things aright. (But why exactly were these dire artifacts in her family’s basement in the first place…?)
Slot 3Honey and Clover II (second season) #8
Original release: 2006
A group of students attending art school together learn about life, love, themselves, and one another. This is the second season of the series, continuing from last Spring.
Slot 4Akagi #8
Original release: 2005–2006
A story of high-stakes mahjong gambling. Based on the classic mahjong manga by Nobuyuki Fukumoto (whose distinctive character designs, one must be advised, are VERY POINTY).
BreakAme to Yume no Ato ni #5 — Restart at 9:30 PM
Slot 5Legend of Galactic Heroes: Side Stories #32
Original release: 1999
Over hundreds of years, humanity has spread forth to the stars; but though the place and age might change, the nature of man remains the same. This semester will be entirely taken up by the “Spiral Labyrinth” side story, which focusses on the early days of Yang Wenli.
Slot 6Claymore #8
Original release: 2007
In a land torn by violence and plagued by inhuman foes, only a special class of warriors have the ability to fight back against the demonic forces that prey on humans; yet to many, these enigmatic women are perhaps even more terrifying than the beasts they hunt….
Slot 7Future Boy Conan #6
Original release: 1978
The tale of a young boy and other survivors in a world transformed by a devastating war. This is a classic series from the late ’70s; it is also notable for some of the creators who worked on it—among them Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata (who later co-founded Studio Ghibli) and Yoshiyuki Tomino (of Gundam fame).
Slot 8Kaiji #8
Original release: 2007–2008
The art of high-stakes gambling (other than mahjong). This is based on another manga by Nobuyuki Fukumoto (creator of Akagi), so be prepared for more pointy-faced characters. Note, despite two of these titles in the lineup, the Anime Club does not encourage gambling! So don’t blame us if you go broke and get pulled into some sinister yakuza plot or something.
Slot 9Hyouka #8
Original release: 2012
Houtarou Oreki’s sister asked him to join the Classics Club as a favor to her, to keep it from being dissolved once she left school. He’d rather not—anything that requires expending energy is something he’d prefer to avoid—but he obligingly joins up, only to end up getting involved in various mysteries around school (most of which have nothing at all to do with the Classics Club).
About the breakLive-action break titles are subtitled unless otherwise noted. Other break materials may vary.
