New Meetup: Anime of the Month - Whisper of the Heart

Announcing a new Meetup for Indy Anime Underground!

What: Anime of the Month - Whisper of the Heart

When: Wednesday, March 31,[masked]:00 PM

Central Library
40 E St Clair St
Indianapolis, IN 46204

With a new month comes a new AotM meetup. For March we ask that everyone watch the title 'Whisper of the Heart', a Studio Ghibli film that's easily overlooked as Miyazaki is not the director. The film was directed by Yoshifumi Kondō, who had previously only done 'animation direction' and other smaller roles for films, but was said to be one of the great upcoming directors in the anime world (and Ghibli in particular) when he died unexpectedly three years after this movie was finished. It's said that his death had a heavy impact on Miyazaki, who retired for awhile afterward. The movie itself is quite good, though tastes are heavily subjective, and I truly believe a great majority will enjoy watching it if they give it a chance ^_^

For those new to the Anime of the Month meetup series, we decide a title that we feel will entertain our members, all of us either rent, borrow, or buy it individually (online viewing is available for Hulu or Funimation's websites for some titles, though unfortunately not for this one), and then after seeing it on our own, we meet up at a convenient location and discuss / critique the film as a group. Anime of the Month is similar to a 'book club' for anime, and an insight into individual tastes into both the genre and each other as much as anything, and we sincerely hope that our members not only enjoy the experience, but also learn a bit more about themselves and our community in the process. Any suggestions for titles or discussion regarding the Anime of the Month can be made in our stickied AotM thread at the top of the IAU General message board.

This time we're changing things up a bit, and we'll be meeting at the Central Library in downtown Indianapolis rather than our normal location at Borders. We hope this is convenient for everyone, and we also sincerely hope you'll enjoy the movie and will have fun discussing it with us at the meetup ^_^
