Those arms are hairier than my legs.

there was one in my school, but nobody showed up accept 3 or 4 of them. just like a normal plot:
they tried getting club applications
they got a small classroom to host in
they always hung out in there doing shenanigans
they always tried to impress and advertise, but never went too smooth
2 guys
2 girls

I sat through a few hours of an anime club meeting, and it was awful. We watched the club president's AMVs for around 45 minutes, followed by 3 episodes of deathnote off of a shitty streaming site, and finally, pokemon trivia Jeopardy.

I wasn't going to join my university's anime club until I coincidentally made friends with a couple people that regularly attended. They invited me one day, but I had to show up late. They weren't there, and I didn't know anyone else. Still, I figured it might be enjoyable. Nope. Bunch of people sitting around, playing MMO's on their laptops or pokemon since the new one had just come out. There was the first episode of some new anime this past season, I don't remember. It was boring.

If I want to sit around and watch anime in silence, I'll do it on my own. I thought people would be talking or making fun of it like friends normally do.

Yo thats weird, I've been doing the anime club thing since high school.

I used to be the president of the one at my campus till it became overrun with faggotry. I was able to keep the faggotry out for a while

Anyway, what is up with every anime club having at least one woman with super hairy fucking arms?

yes. it was more of a mental illness support group than anything and their tastes were just disgusting.

they also overlapped with bronies. i couldn't even believe it, they were every negative stereotype the internet had made them out to be.

and they just flat watched tentacle porn in a public place with each other. what the fuck
>>
>>100088016
Actually, shit hold on, I lied. I was in one for a semester at my last college. Pretty chill, a couple weird looking people but it was all good conversation. We were watching Rurouni Kenshin and Angel Beats.

There was a club week thing and they were playing Street Fighter. I don't even know

normalfag here. Nope, never been to one. I found their discussions rather... rabid.

I used to watch anime when I was a kid, and I still do sometimes, but I feel awkward around the resident anime club members.

Then I joined the IT/Gamedev club instead.
>>
I went once.
Me: So are you guys going to watch this week's latest anime today?
Some guy literally went "green text" >watching anime
While trying to imitate the face. Another guy went "top lel" and everyone was giggling. They proceed to talk about the latest steam sale and why The Last of Us was the best game released in 2013.
>>
I was in an anime/gaming club at college that was kinda shit for the most part because we hardly watched anime. The problem was that our weeaboo president was so afraid of legal problems from not getting screening rights that we never showed anything. It wasn't until my senior year that we started actually watching anime, and that's only because another guy and I decided to actually ask around and get rights to things.

The president of the club was a cunt. Pure dictatorship; no democracy, everyone was forced to watch the shitty shows the president had picked. Everything was streamed from some shithole site. 5min breaks between shows for dancing and talking.

I NOPE'd the fuck out of their so hard!

No you don't understand, they really don't talk about anime.

Yup attended one at my university for a few years. Showed up once a week on thursdays to marathon an anime i'd otherwise never watch. Out of the 8 or so members only one narutard autist.

Was expecting much worse from the stories i'd heard.

Yes, next semester we're watching TTGL, Princess Jellyfish, and Binbougami ga!

In high school, I joined only because my best friend was a member and he talked me into going. I stopped going once he graduated.

Admittedly I was a huge casual back then so I have no right to shit on their taste. First shows we watched were Bleach and Fruits Basket (this was back in 2005). The leaders downloaded stuff to show or let others bring in DVDs. Other stuff we watched was DNAngel, War of the 12 kingdoms, Record of Lodoss War, and Lucky Star.

I mean, yeah, they're retarded but.. they're happy, right? Ignorance is bliss as they say. Just imagine it. So innocent you think Naruto and shonen are the best things ever so you have new episodes of stuff you love every week, you have tons of friends in the club and do fun things with them.. unlike now how we're all bitter and jaded.

the anime club at my school was so fucking worthless. It was renamed the "Anime/Card club" because all it is is plebs pretending they played pokemon, watched dragon ball z, and play magic because it's "#NERD XD"

Went to a small school in a very small town.
No anime club, but a book club called Worms Anonymous (I still shudder at that) started up when i was in 10th grade. Decided to join because I'd read pretty much our entire library.
Read The Hole and LOTR as a group, some of them start discussing Toonami one day, then suddenly we abandon books for no reason and start watching anime.
I quit the club once I discovered I could download anime on Kazaa, because all they talked about was DBZ, Inuyasha, and Gundam Wing, over and over and over. They disbanded my senior year. Heard they were told to go back to being a book club and didn't.
>>

I always feel so bad for the kids who have massively nerdy parents, right out the gate they are guaranteed to have shit social skills and weird interests that make them an easy target for other schoolmates.

>>100087770
Cal Animage Epsilon, University of California Irvine, back in the early 90s. I think we only had one or two women show up regularly but there were usually twenty+ guys - most of them students. Mostly Asian members but the student body at that school (and the area in general) is something like 60-70% White (not Hispanic)/Asian/Pacific Islander.

At the time I was still in high school and nobody was processing video in any digital format in any meaningful way, so it was the only way to get easy access to fansubs. We essentially just sat around and watched VHS dubs (copies) that the club had acquired.

I haven't been back in almost 20 years now, but every once in a while I wonder what its like now. I actually ran into a girl at Comiket last year who was an active member and based on what she was saying it seems to be more event/activity driven now that everybody can get their episodes with the click of a button on their own.

I guess back in the day it was more of a club to get together and view stuff as a group, and exchange content since the internet as we know it was still in its infancy. The older guys there were honestly very similar to the types you see in Otaku no Video. Now viewing stuff together and exchanging content is completely secondary to cosplay/masquerade events, theater performances, and con attendance.
>>
I'll admit, I go to mine regularly, but it's pretty damn tame and fun compared to the other horror stories I've read here. We only watch shows that aired last season and we won't watch popular "mainstream" shows that tons of people already watch in that season (SnK, KLK, etc.). No totalitarian horror story bullshit either, we vote equally on the list we want to watch for the season. Most of the shows I've already seen, but there's a few I missed or didn't bother to pick up so I show up for those.

There's plenty of casual lowlevels there, but they aren't rage-induced faggots who think they know everything and spout memes. They are polite and seem genuinely interested in expanding their catalog. There's plenty of laughs here and there with the typical anime cliches and people are (somewhat) hygienic. I guess I'm just lucky.

If I had to name a downside though, it's the one faggot in the back who has the most obnoxious laugh I've heard, but his jokes tend to be funny, so his laugh is drowned out by other people's anyway.

I went to an anime club once, it used to be terrible with a fujo president but then she left and it got a lot better. We even watched current shit every week. Good current shit too, like Senyuu and Gargantia. Overall a pleasant experience.
>>
I took a small university course about anime which was basically a club. I'm pretty sure the lecturers go on /a/, and we mentioned the board a couple number of times in lecture. It was pretty cool, we watched Daily Lives of Highschool Boys, Jojo, Psycho-Pass, among other anime. We also talked about visual novels like G Senjo no Mao and Katawa Shoujo. The material itself was surprisingly respectable, and since it was lecture based, the autism of the students wasn't blatant. 8/10, would do again.
>>
Never been a member, but back in high school I rocked up to a few anime club screenings. It was an all-boys' selective high school, so there were no landwhales or obnoxious weeaboo faggots, just a bunch of introverted guys watching anime.

This was before I was really into animer, so I just went for a bunch of FMA brotherhood screenings (they showed the episodes the same week they aired), but I remember seeing posters around the school advertising SZS screenings and other more niche shit.

I said I didn't like it and it was trying too hard in the animation style. Gamigori body proportions were messed the fuck up in episode one.
I bet the guy came on /a/ and complained endlessly about how his college anime club were so pleb in not enjoying Kill La Kill.

Nope. Visited one once, but I had seen WAY more anime and read way more manga than anyone in it, yet somehow was still the most socially sound person there. Never going back.

I started an anime club in middle school. We actually watched Haruhi every single week and I routinely brought in movies like Perfect Blue and Ghost In The Shell for us to watch. It eventually got shut down when some kids told the parents I was showing "cartoon porn" in class which isn't true, but meh. Got me kicked out of my middle school and sent to a school for edgy shit kids and I was there until I graduated High School.

I too suffered the "nerdy parent" curse. I was spoon-fed anime and other hobbies from an early age. Shit was tough in middle and high school, but I found some true bros in the end.

The real benefit of the "curse" is that I have something interesting to talk to my parent about over the phone, or watch with them on holidays.

I did join one in my last two years of highschool, and was actually pretty good. We watched a range of stuff, generally one currently airing series and one old series, alternating between them so we could have two sessions a week without catching up to the currently airing one.
There were over a hundred members, and we got the school's media room with the large screen. Where I live anime is relatively well known, which is why I really don't understand the whole "hide your powerlevel" thing.

I tried going to the one at DePaul University, but it was full of fags. They spent around an hour playing some retarded card game before they even started their entry-level anime, and when they did it was dubbed. I still see flyers for the club on the bulletin boards and what they are showing is almost always complete trash like the devil may cry anime.
Wish I could find a bro /a/non to watch Chinese cartoons with.

First of all that is not even a person. It is neither man nor woman. This being has transcended beyond gender.
Also, i saw a mustache on a hambeast before.

Nothing is worse than going on your dad's ipad in highschool and finding shitty anime porn apps.
Except for going on your mom's browser history and finding shitty fujo japanese fanfiction.

Forgive me for being ignorant, but how did anime fansubs really work back then in the VHS scene? I always here stories about them but it sounds like it'd be very difficult to get ahold of stuff for find info on series in a pre-modern-Internet age.

Ever wonder what it would be like to get around 30 /a/nons in one room for a club? What would that be like?
I imagine dead silence and people playing on their phones while casting glances at everyone around them when they think no one is watching.
And then maybe one guy says something half-jokingly that involves something about /a/, like a meme, and two other people give short, forced laughs to shut him up.

I tried to show some friends dubbed ghibli once thinking that it was entry tier enough that they might like it but they just thought it was wierd.
