Another Day, Another meetup at La Fontana.
In case any of you missed it, La Fontana is a Italian Food restaurant which conveniently also has a movie theater. You get served great food while watching your favorite anime.
The featured anime for this meetup is Irresponsible Captain Tyler, a space opera comedy. I have both the base and OAV box sets which I've been meaning to use for quite a while. I showed two episodes of it last meetup and it got well received. We'll likely start off at episode 3 unless peeps want to start from the start again.
We can also do other animes as long as they are on DVD and aren't overly violent.
We set the meetup time an hour later at 5pm so we'll have about 3 hours of meetup time before they boot us out of the restaurant.
Those driving can find parking along Esmond Ave a short distance from La Fontana. Those taking bus can get there by catch the #130 from Metrotown station and stop close in front.
We'll meet inside the restaurant and hope to get things started as soon a possible.
If anyone is going to be late then please call or txt me at[masked]
Description Over. Now for the news:
I recently reappointed Akemi as a Meetup organizer who I've requested share her Japanese Movie meetup, Anime Related meetups and Anime Meetups. She runs all of her meetups through La Fontana too. So also cross posts her meetups so there will likely be large turnouts.
Due to some of our members being sensitive to particularly violent animes, I've decided to start hosting anime at the Library again. We will have the extra bit of privacy there that we wouldn't have at La Fontana. I've been long sitting on doing Berserk but have had to hold back on it due it's violent content.
I'll also be looking to do mid-week meetups for people who can't make weekend meetups. Likely they will be social meetups unless they get good turnouts. Good turnouts means we could do Mid-week anime watching at La Fontana.
Also, again, I encourage people to try and host their own meetups.
I'm STILL holding off doing meetups at my place being at it is still a disaster area not fit for humans.
