Despite Maine being an anagram of anime, it can be hard to find people in such a rural state who share an interest in anime, manga, and other Japanese media and culture.
Crossroads Anime Club is a weekly club where members can discuss --but more importantly watch and enjoy, anime with other enthusiasts. All levels of knowledge and fandom are more than welcome; we all start somewhere!
This club will watch either a feature-length movie, or several episodes per meetup, with choices nominated and decided on by members. For series, we'll keep you posted on what we're in the middle of, so you can catch up on your own if you miss a week or are joining late!
There will also be time before, after, and in-between watching, for discussion of anything and everything anime-related, or whatever topic happens to come up. Video games, manga, and light novels are all things that many of us enjoy, as well as similar western media.
Many members also attend conventions for anime, video games, etc. Cons are always better with friends, so don't hesitate to mention any you'll be attending --you may find out you're not the only one! PortCon, Anime Boston, NYCC, and many other conventions are right here in the northeast! Cosplay discussion, brainstorming, and showing is also more than welcome.
We meet Wednesdays, at 6:30 PM, with the first episode or movie starting at 7. We are located at Fiddlehead Art and Science Center, 25 Shaker Rd. Gray, ME.
UNFORTUNATELY, WE DO HAVE TO ASK THAT ALL MEMBERS BE 18 OR OLDER, due to the potential for mature themes in some selections.
