Of Squids and Hats

I did it. My ika-hat is finally complete in all its squidy and tentacley glory. Now I can join forces with my ika-bretheren and together we shall invade the Earth!

You too can join our conquest for domination today by following this video tutorial for instructions on how to make an ika-hat.

In related news, Ika Musume is definitely the show of the season. OreImo and Kaminomi are entertaining, Bakuman has alot of potential, and Star Driver is :fabulous:, but I find myself anticipating Ika Musume the most every week. Its light-hearted and relaxing comedy just clicks really well with me.

Also, I’d totally eat Ika Musume iykwim.

San Gabriel High School’s Anime Club (“Anime Anonymous”) has recently informed me about their upcoming Halloween costume/cosplay event.

Yeah, I never knew before this that there is an anime club there either.

If any of you guys are interested, it will be held on Oct. 30th 11:00 A.M. to 2:00 PM. Tickets are $5 pre-sale and $7 at the door. More information can be found in the poster to the left.

Since their president went out of her way to invite us, I will personally be paying her some respects and be attending it.

A little report on various stuff that have been going on.

– We’ve added a line of text on the Club Board (see sidebar) that states when the next screening will be. If some issue suddenly rises up that forces us to reschedule, a post will be made and that line will be updated.
– We’ve made a new Idler powerpoint that will play on the screen while we prepare to show an episode. It will display random facts/statistics about anime culture (e.g. October 10th is Moe Day), random tips on good websites/tools to use, manga/game/whatever recommendations from officers, etc. If you have anything mindblowing (or not) that you wish to contribute to it, email us or leave a comment on the Suggestions page.
– We will be making a Suggestions Box to station in the club room. We love suggestions.
– Finally, we’ve recently got this idea to use club funds to purchase English-translated manga/light novels and keep a library of them at the club room. We’re not entirely sure how we should go about this, so we’d like to hear what you guys think. We’ll talk about it a bit in our next screening (Oct. 20).
