This is a meetup for adults, teens, and families with young kids who love anime, cosplay, and manga. We have two showings per month. One movies is targeted for a mature audience, the second movies is targeted for a wider audience, including families. We have great movies, great conversations lead by an anime blogger with a huge collection and vast knowlege, we have food, and we have great video and sound.
Do you have a child or teen who's into anime or want to get started in cosplay? Do you want to know more about it? Maybe you've watched some anime with your child and want a better understanding of this art form? Having a problem finding an anime social group for your child or teen to meet fellow anime and cosplay lovers?
THIS meetup is ONLY for people who want to COME and join us to watch and learn about anime movies. We have limited space, so please do not signup if you do not have time to come or are just looking for movie ideas. You can see the events without taking up a space in the meetup. There is a limit of only 50 spaces.
If you are interested in crafts, costume-making/cosplay, use of the laser-cutter and woodshop tools, etc., join us through our parent meetup instead of taking up a space here!
Nova Labs is a huge Makerspace so there is lots to do for adults in your own area of passion. Do not join both meetups please.
Meetup.com's policy is that adults over 18 may sign up. Thus, adult family members may join the meetup. Adults must stay with their younger kids (under 12) while at the movie showings. We strongly recommend parents stay involved as we explore the food and culture of the Japan and the anime/cosplay world.
