Friday in the iLab

This Friday will also be our first meeting in the UH Manoa iLab, beginning at 3:00PM! These will be called Extra Curricular Community (ECC) Meetups where we will be able to use the space along with other organizations such as the Manoa Academy of Gamers (MAG) and the Osu! Club at UH Manoa. Come on over and meet our clubs!

Since the iLab will not have open hours this semester, we are working with the iLab to make the ECC a weekly occurrence. Like previous Fridays, we plan to hold the same Fresh Friday activities at ECC Meetups.

Thursday meetings will be from 4:30pm to 7:00pm in Kuykendall 210.
Friday meetings will also be from 4:30pm to 7:00pm weekly but the meeting place may vary between Kuykendall 210 and the iLab. Check the calendar for details!


Thursday Weekly Anime

This semester we will introduce a more dynamic showing format, as an alternative to the previous static pick-a-show-and-watch-it format.

2-3 Semester
Shows
Similar to last semester, each Thursday we will watch:
・ 1 ep for a ~12 episode show
・ 2 eps for a ~24 episode show
1 Show-Of-The-WeekThis show is picked each week, and the following week we will watch up to three episodes of that show.

For any show that is ongoing, the club can vote to start following it from the most recent episodes. If people vote to do this for a semester show, we will vote for a new show once it ends. If people vote to do this for the show-of-the-week, we’ll watch the 3-4 most recent episodes at the next meeting.

All planned showings will be posted on the calendar, and you’ll have a week to catch up to what we’re showing in club.

Voting for the first Show-Of-The-Week will happen on Thursday, September 5th, and that show will be aired on Thursday, September 12. Voting for Semester Showings will be on Thursday, September 12.


Fresh Friday Anime and Games

Like last semester, we want our Fresh Fridays to be a place where you can chill and unwind for the weekend. Thus, the showing format for Fridays will still be up for grabs, but we do want to make it a point to show more anime on Fridays. Friday showings can vary from anything between Semester Showings, Show-Of-The-Week, or even Random Pick.

Fridays will also be our Game Days. I will be bringing multi-outlets, as well as the speaker and projector to each meeting for those who want to plug in computers and consoles. On days that we are in the iLab, those with membership to the Manoa Academy of Gamers (MAG) will be able to use the iLab computers.

Due to the 4th of July, we will not be having our regular showing meeting tomorrow. Enjoy the weekend! We’ll be back next week, July 12th.

In lieu of our regular meeting, there will be a mini officer’s briefing at Michi’s Toy Box tomorrow starting 4:30pm. Though this meeting is for officers, any interested club members are also welcome to attend. If you are an officer and cannot make it in person, don’t worry since we can also hop on Discord to discuss things.

We will also be meeting at Ivan’s later during the month on Saturday, July 20th (RSVP, officers and regular members only), which can also function as an officer’s meeting. Stay tuned for more details.

Hey everyone! We hope you’re enjoying summer, and had a good Spring semester. We will also have meetings every week during the Summer semesters, every Friday in Kuykendall 210 from 4:30pm-7:00pm. We also usually go to grab food after (-8:30p/9:00p).

What do we do?

Since we’re an anime club, we usually watch anime every week: either shows that we select, random showings, or both. Depending on how many people are there, we may also do other stuff.

Can I game?/I’m a part of MAG (the Manoa Academy of Gaming) or a different club/I just want to hang out with friends, can I join in?

Absolutely! Feel free to join us as well. If you want to play card/board games, go ahead! If you want to game, you can do that too– in fact, if you want to plug in your setups, we can bring multi-outlets to accommodate you in the Kuykendall rooms. We can even bring a projector and stereo speaker to supplement anything you bring.

If you want to do a LAN party, marathon a certain show, or anything else, definitely join our Discord so you can chat with others and ask about it:
discord.amshawaii.org

The end of the year is upon us! As such, we’ll have something fun for our last Friday meeting tomorrow: feel free to join in on a casual potluck and singing session with Vocaluxe/Ultrastar in Kuykendall 209! For those of you going to Avengers: Endgame during the day, we’ll start our thing a bit later in the evening, and go from 5:00p – 10:00p.

Check out the list below for a full catalog of the songs we’ve got:

We can also take Twitch Sings for a test run as well.

Bring some food, and enjoy the music!

KawaiiKon is this week, so we will not have any Thursday or Friday meetings. We’ll be right back next week! Enjoy the convention.

If you ordered a pass through our club, you should have received an email with details about pass pickup. If you have ordered one and this is not the case, please let us know.

We will also be showcasing our Artists@AMS Table at the convention as well! Come and check out our booth at table 253 in the Artist’s Alley! Our following artists will be displaying their works:

Today, we’ll be holding our Open Game Day in the iLab, from 4:30pm-7:30pm! This is a test run to see how holding our game days in there works out, but it’s pretty much exactly what we usually do. As always, feel free to bring your setups, board games, and what ever you feel like to game with us! The iLab comes with some added bonuses as well:

  1. There are up to three TVs that you can use to plug in a console or a laptop
  2. If you’re a part of MAG, you’ll also be able to hop on any of the six fancy gaming PCs in the room
  3. There are plenty of tables for you to set up tabletop games!

As usual, we’ll also go and grab food after, rides permitting. Whether or not you’re a regular at AMS, you’re welcome to join in!

If you need to figure out where the iLab is, it’s the small building right in between Kuykendall and the Art Building, and between two parking lots. You can’t miss it!
