Report on June 28 meeting

Posted in Meeting Reports at 11:25 pm by mark

Attendance was light again this time — the same four die-hards as last time. But I again had the digital projector, which worked well in the small conference room. Kris brought cupcakes again!

(I would be interested in hearing any suggestions people would have for improving attendance — or are folks just busy during the summer?)

As scheduled, Hellsing #11, RahXephon #10, Hikaru no Go #7, Haibane Renmei #10, and the particularly funny Galaxy Angel #10 were shown.

Trivia: there is one voice actor who appears in two of the series we’re currently showing, and another who appears in three of them. Any guesses?


Report on June 14 meeting

Posted in Meeting Reports at 6:47 pm by mark

Attendance was light today; other than Kris and myself, only two members were present. But they got a special treat, as I was able to provide a digital projector and subwoofer-equipped speakers for my laptop, so the sound and video were better than ever. (In particular, the subtitles were a lot more readable, at higher resolution and larger size!)

As scheduled, Hellsing #10, RahXephon #9, Hikaru no Go #6, Haibane Renmei #9, and Galaxy Angel #9 were shown.

Afterward I showed the opening credit sequences for, and gave brief descriptions of, D.N.Angel, Naruto, Scrapped Princess, Ghost in the Shell, Narue no Sekai, E’s Otherwise, Last Exile, Kino no Tabi, Kaleido Star, Abenobashi Mahou Shoutengai, Uchuu no Stellvia, and Full Moon wo Sagashite. In my personal opinion, the best of this crop are Scrapped Princess and Last Exile (and I’m also enjoying Kaleido Star and Uchuu no Stellvia), but once Hellsing and Haibane Renmei are over (in a few meetings), we’ll put it to a vote (perhaps after a reshowing of these intros, and any others that members opt to provide).

meeting report for Sat. May 31, 2003

Posted in Meeting Reports at 11:07 pm by Kris

May 31 was the first of our Saturday meetings, which will continue until Labor Day because the Library is closed on sundays over the summer. Attendance was very light, but we had a good time anyway. Mark was unable to attend because of a prior commitment, but he kindly dropped off a tape of the scheduled episodes. We watched Hellsing #9, RahXephon #8, Hikaru no Go #5, Haibane Renmei #8, and Galaxy Angel #8. We were in the small Conference Room just inside from the library entrance this time around, and it worked out well; no windows to peek through, good light control, and comfy chairs for a change! I just may request this room again.
Next meeting is scheduled for Saturday, June 14, from 11:15am to 1:15 pm; Scheduled episodes are Hellsing #10, RahXephon #9, Hikaru no Go #6, Haibane Renmei #9, and Galaxy Angel #9. We also may have previews of series we may want to see in future; come, bring or tell us about a favorite series if you’ve got one, and help us decide! See you there!
