Archive Spring 2006

Meeting: Monday May 1st, 2006
Issues: Final meeting, various stats and information discussed. Summer meetings will occur, they will start Tuesday May 30th and occur every Monday after that unless otherwise noted. Have a great summer! Anime sampler occurred; we watched one episode of four different series.
Anime: Yakitate!! Japan, Azumanga Daioh, Desert Punk, Tenchi Muyo OVA
Yakitate!! Japan Azumanga Daioh
Desert Punk Tenchi Muyo OVA
Overview Yakitate!! Japan (Official Description): The stakes are high and the competition is fierce, but Kazuma won't let anything prevent him from achieving his nation-changing, freshly baked goal. Relocating to Tokyo, Kazuma seeks to further his studies at Pantasia, a famous bakery chain. But will he rise to the challenge and pass the entrance examination, or will his best intentions fall flat?
Overview Azumanga Daioh (Official Description): In Miss Yukari's English class, every day is an adventure. First off, there's the teacher herself. A bit of an air-head, she may have graduated from high school, but she sure hasn't left. And with the arrival of not one, but two transfer students - one ten-year-old prodigy and one space cadet - it's going to be an interesting year!
Overview Desert Punk (Official Description): Enter a decimated world deep within the desert, where a less-than-noble hero fights for less-than-noble causes and chases a voluptious love interest for less-than-decent reasons. A world where war is a way of life, sarcasm is mode of communication and the unexpected is always on the menue. With Desert Punk's strikingly realistic weaponry, darkly comical tone and gritty character design, this much anticipated series trailblazes a bold new direction in both story and style for traditional anime.
Overview Tenchi Muyo OVA (Official Description): Tenchi Masaki is a normal high school student in Japan, who spends the summers doing chores around his grandfather's family shrine. One day, Tenchi manages to steal the key to a mysterious cave where an oni (Japanese demon) is said to have been sealed away by his ancester Yoshou, whose sword still stands guard over it. When he enters this cave, he finds that, much to his surprise, the legend is indeed true when the oni's dessicated skeletal form ("mira"--Japanese mummy) comes to life and attacks him. Tenchi flees the cave in a panic, and later returns to high school, taking the hilt--seemingly all that remains of the ancestral sword--with him. At school, Tenchi is again attacked by the oni, whose name is Ryouko, who has now completely revived herself. Tenchi manages to defeat her with the sword's help, but this is only the beginning of a hilarious Japanese romantic comedy.
