★★★ FOLLOW ALL FOUR STEPS TO JOIN! ★★★
★ STEP 1: Donate $12 or more for VIP status.
Anime Sampler is a VIP party to fund our nonprofit mission. VIP status is valid for 12 months, so you can attend four Samplers a year!
★ STEP 2: Join Discord early and troubleshoot A/V issues.
Follow our guide to getting started. https://animechicago.com/discord/
★ STEP 3: Participate in our Café Challenge!
1. Select one title airing this season from https://anichart.net.
2. Create a dish, dessert, or beverage inspired by that title!
3. Photograph your creations and share recipes in our VIP Discord channel #cafe-challenge.
The idea here is to host a remote café experience together. Get creative with your pantry. If you happen to be grocery shopping, add a little something extra to your cart. Not an experienced chef or mixologist? Select online recipes to design your specialty menu.
An example for Kaguya-sama S2: Kaguya appears sweet and refined, but her bite is sharp. As is a cherry parfait! https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/pretty-cherry-parfaits/
★ STEP 4: Open Discord at 1:45 pm when #sampler goes live.
There will be breaks for chatting and other shenanigans. Thanks in advance for your patience as we hammer out technical and logistical challenges.
★★★ We can’t wait to party with you! ★★★
