The Anime Club is an after-school club at BSGE that provides entertainment for students who are fans of anime. For those of you who don’t know what anime is, it is an abbreviation for Japanese animated films that show stories of a variety of different types and genres. These genres include Action, Adventure, Comedy, Drama, Fantasy, Romance, or Horror. Anime often comes in series of multiple episodes, usually ranging from 10 to 20. But when it comes to mainstream anime, the number of episodes can reach all the way to above hundreds or even to thousands. Depending on which type of anime you like, your viewing experiences may vary.
The Anime Club, comprised mostly of juniors and seniors, has been running since the 2013-2014 school year. During club meeting hours in the Conference Room, students get to watch and discuss their favorite anime while eating and drinking their favorite snacks and soda. Every week, a different anime is shown in order to vary the experience for club members and expose them to new genres of anime. The anime that the group watches include Psycho Pass, Parasyte, Death Billiards, and Deadman Wonderland. Each club meeting lasts for only 30 minutes, from 2:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Fridays after school. This student-run club was established by seniors Nick Tan ‘15 and Omar Nasr 15’ and supervised by Ms. Johnson. “At the present, I think it’s a wonderful group of close-knit friends. We all have a friendly relationship that carries out of anime club. Some of us even go out to continue to talk about anime and other things after school ends on Friday,” said one member. Anime Club is currently still recruiting members from all over the school. If you are an avid anime follower, you should definitely join the club and pursue your interests!
