Screening Update: No screening on Saturday, September 3 (Updated)

Update: We're taking advantage of the long weekend to have a get together at Yoshimatsu (2660 North Campbell Avenue). Meet there by 5:00 PM.

Unfortunately, due to the University's official recognition process taking longer than originally anticipated, we will NOT be able to have a screening this weekend.  We are currently working on alternative plans, such as a possible group dinner (leave a comment if you may be interested), and will update when we have a more set plan, hopefully within the next day or so.

Friday AMV #1 - Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica - Bad Apple

Welcome to the weekend!  To help celebrate, we're kicking it off with a good AMV.  First up, Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica (Spring 2011), done to Bad Apple.

There's also a second version that someone else made using an English version of Bad Apple. Normally I wouldn't recommend it, since translated versions of songs tend to be far inferior to their originals, but this one is quite good.  See it over the jump.

Welcome new members!

First of all, a warm welcome to anyone who may be coming to this site after our really successful day at the University of Arizona's club fair.  We gave out around 60-70 cards, and got about 30-40 people added to our mailing list.  If most of you (and our current members, don't worry, I haven't forgotten you) show up to our screenings, we'll have to move to a larger room, which would be absolutely great!

 Next up is asking for input on what people would like to see here.  As I said before, I am considering doing some fairly casual anime/manga reviews, season previews, and posts on TASS activities at a minimum, but I'm also willing to take up suggested topics as time allows.

Starting up the TASS blog

To be completely honest, I'm not completely sure what to do with this space, but at a bare minimum, you can expect to see updates on TASS' activities and operations.  Maybe I'll expand it to include anime and manga reviews, and other updates as time permits.

It's my first time running a blog, so please don't be too hard on me while things get going! :)
