Anime Club

Anime Club
Hello, and welcome to Truman's Anime Club.
Anime Club is a club for those students who have an interest in Anime.  Anime is a style of animated television and film created and popularized in Japan.

The Next Club Meeting Will Be on Thursday, February 14

We are going to have a little Valentine's Day party this day.  If you agreed to bring a treat, please try to remember.  Also, take consideration for students who might have allergies.

On February 14th, we will take a final head-count for Zenkaikon too.  So, if you plan on going, I need to know by then.  Permission forms and payment will be due by February 28th, but I want to start planning for the transportation and all.  The trip is March 24, which is a Sunday.  It will basically take up all of that day.  The forms with all the information can be found on our Google Classroom.  If you are having trouble accessing that, just send me an email.  I can email you the forms and help you get set up with Google Classroom.

Also feel free to check out Zenkaikon's web page.  It has a ton of great information on it.

General Information about Anime Club Meetings
As always, the meeting will last until about 5:20, which will allow students to get down to the 5:30 late bus, which leaves promptly at 5:30.  If you need to leave before then, you are certainly welcome to do so.  However, you will need to find your own transportation if you leave before the late buses.

There is a slight change in routine this year.  Since we have become more official this year, Anime Club members need to first sign in with the teachers in the cafeteria.  I will be down there to help with this change.  They just want us to sign in so that they know we are really having an Anime Club.  We will collect there and then head down to B-23 for our normal celebration of Animes.

Feel free to bring snacks and beverages, as it is a long time between 2:30 and 5:30.  I'll supply some soft pretzels to help you make it to 5:30, as is tradition at this point.  Obviously, it is important to handle all food and beverages in a responsible manner.

If there are any questions or comments, feel free to email me or stop in B-23 and ask for Mr. Black.

 In Anime Club, we meet once a week after school to watch and discuss Animes.  During the year we will check out some series and films, and we try to watch Animes that are less mainstream.  We don't want to watch something that everyone has already watched.  That's because one of the goals of Anime Club to help members discover new Animes.  Anime Club also went on its first field trip last year to Zenkaikon, an Anime Convention held each year in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.  Our goal is to return to the convention in March of 2019.  We will discuss all the details about that as the convention nears.

Anime Club meets every Thursday after school in Room B-23 starting in early October.  The Club meets until about 5:20 pm, and students are encouraged to take the 5:30 Late Buses home from Truman.  Members are allowed to leave before then, but they will need their own transportation home.

The club is sponsored by Mr. Black, who also serves as one of the tenth grade English teachers.  Please feel free to email Mr. Black with any questions or comments at
