[Wed. 5.20.2009]
Hey there, everyone!
So I know this is the last of the semester, but there are still some announcement-Hey! sit down there, you can stand to listen to these!-right, announcements that need to be said before you all go off and enjoy the summer.

So, first things first!
The scheduled showings have been declared as of now! The winners are R.O.D, the television series, and Sayanora Zetsubou Sensei. We hope that you approve of these, and hope that you will enjoy them in the coming semester.

Also to announce, there is some wicked awesome stuff going on during the summer!

If you're in Boston, and hunting for things to do, look no further! The New England Browncoats – fans of most things Whedon, have notified me of a couple of events going on in June.
1. June 19th, Amber Benson, Christopher Golden and Tom Sniegoski will be doing a one night signing at Pandemonium Books in Cambridge. Amber and Chris have done the Animated series Ghosts of Albion for the BBC.
2. June 20th will be a showing of Dr. Horrible and Serenity at the Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact Shelley Hachman at

Even if you are not interested with these, I still recommend checking out the website of the Coolidge Corner Theatre. There are many showings that are cult classics, and definitely worth seeing!

Next off, there has been great noise over a new band that is going to be in the USA during this summer, and they're called the VAMPS. The band is a collaboration of L’arc~en~Ciel’s front man HYDE and Oblivion Dust’s guitarist K.A.Z. They'll be here for 3 weeks, playing in 10 different cities. If you would like to learn more, check out their official website at

Alright, that's it. I hope you all have a great summer and don't get too banged up, We don't want anyone in casts when they get back here. I hope to see you at the awesome anime cons that will be held during the summer, and I hope that you have a great time!

See Ya!

Dear members of the Umass Anime Club,
I am sorry to inform you that this is the end. The last meeting of the semester is finally upon us. We have gathered faithfully every week to celebrate the art form known as anime, and now that time is over. I hope that you may join me for one final viewing in Morrill, room N329, at 6 pm, on the date of 12 May 2009, so that we may mourn the end of this time together.
But let us not mourn long! For while we sigh in sorrow, there is still work to be done, if we are to celebrate the coming of a new semester this autumn! We must choose, for our own greater good, the scheduled showings that will be presented. This past week, the office has been open for early votes, but this Tuesday, the voting and debating culminate. We will choose two anime to stand tall, and be shown each week, and every week, before our open showings. So I ask of you, come and help us choose. Help, so that you may have a pleasurable semester come the fall.
I urge you all to do your duty, as members of the Umass Amherst Anime Club!

Notice: it appears that there is going to be a meeting of anime otaku within the next week.
Our information is limited, but here is what our scouts have been able to pick up:
They plan to meet on Tuesday, 28 April 2008, from 6pm to 11pm in Morrill N329. We have also been notified that they intend to bring their own supplies of anime. We are unsure of the reason for their gathering, but we do know that seem to be an overall peaceful group. We believe that interaction is possible, and even welcomed.
Hopefully, we might be able to learn more of this unusual group of people, and might be able to learn more of their customs given more time.

In a completely unrelated note, the photos from the Iron Cosplay are up! Check them out here!

I apologize for the shortness of this note, but they're after me. The Zombies have attacked! They swarm the campus, feasting on the brains of my friends and allies. I just managed to hide from them, but there is a time that we must fight, and that time is now. I just wanted to leave this information for all those who might be left. We shall meet in Morrill N329, tuesday at 6pm, as usual. It's a safe zone, so we will be able to conduct the meeting as close to normally as possible. Bring whatever anime you can, so as to extend the time we can cower in safety.
May we fight for all that is human, and defend our bretheren from this terrible plight.
Good luck.
