Hey Everyone!

We’re glad to announce that we will be holding MDOA this week on our discord server. Since the university has closed down due to COVID-19, we had to come up with alternative ways to do club. We hope to continue being a group that provides social areas where people can discuss, criticize, and analyze - despite being online.

If you haven’t joined our discord, feel free to join below! We will be utilizing the discord Live feature to stream our anime for the rest of the semester.

As the university has decided to move all classes to online instruction for the rest of the semester, we have had to make the heavy decision to cancel all club meetings for the remainder of the semester. This is an unfortunate situation, but everyone's health is a top priority. We are looking into online solutions to see if we can do at least certain club activities online. We highly recommend joining our Discord server if you haven't already, the link to which can be found below. Stay safe everyone!

Thank you to all those who attended ADO this spring for coming out and making it fun!

For those who don't know, Anime Day Out is our day out together every semester to go the mall, eat ramen, visit HMart, get bubble tea, visit some local shops, and sing karaoke together. It's a lot of fun! Active members, their guests, and club alumni are welcome to attend.

Personally, it was my last official one but third overall with you all as an undergrad, but I hope to return as an alumna in the future. Many thanks to the other officers as well for handling much of the event. I hope you all had fun!

Hey all, important update! Today we will be taking our first round of officer nominations for the 2019-20 school year. If you are interested in running or want to nominate another club member please do so! We will be holding another round next week as well, and the election will be during our last meeting of the semester. We are also taking our second round of anchor show suggestions for next semester tonight, so if you want a show shown next semester, again please come! These will be narrowed down to ten choices that will be voted on over the summer. In order to finish our current anchor shows in a timely manner we have begun watching two episodes of a specific show per meeting (and one episode of each other show). Last week we watched two Megalo Box episodes, and this week we will be watching two Little Witch Academia episodes. Next week we will be watching two episodes of Devil is a Part-Timer. Hope to see you all at tonight's meeting!

03/25/2019

Thanks to everyone who turned out last night, we had plenty of new faces which is always great to see. As a general run down of what went down last night, we watched our four shows (Megalo Box, Little Witch Academia, The Devil is a Part-Timer, and Cuticle Detective) and went over important beginning of the semester updates.

An important reminder that our emergency election will be held during our NEXT meeting, Wednesday the 23rd, so if you want to have a say or vote then its imperative that you come!

The UGA Involvement Fair is also next Wednesday so if any members want to come by and help us out it'd be greatly appreciated, and if you aren't a member yet please be sure to stop by and we can answer any questions you may have if you're interested in joining!

Discord is a free online instant messaging service where members of our club can all talk to each other about various topics and is also the easiest way to get into contact with the officers.
