April brings some change to JAPC!
There have been some changes to the group, and the changes are outlined in the Updates! topic, so I suggest you give it a read, because it’s kind of important.
I promise no April fools jokes today, and I fulfill that promise. No part of this update is false information. I originally planned to partake in April fools celebrations, by sending this update out where everything was typed backwards, but figured people would not take kindly to that. (=^_^=)
April is crazy busy both with events, and my personal life. There are two conventions this month, C2E2 and Anime Central! Feel free to discuss and arrange meetups at the events in our forum topics! Do you have any Anime Central 2012 Cosplay Plans?
Because it’s so hectic trying to meet up at conventions, JAPC is having a dinner meetup the Thursday evening before ACen. If you want to join us for the dinner, please RSVP in the Thursday ACen Eve Dinner [April 26, 2012] topic in our forum. We need a head count by April 15, because we will need to make reservations, so get your RSVP today by APRIL 15! Hope to see you there!
So, here what’s going on for April 2012:
- Tentative April Anime Meeting [April 7]
- C2E2 2012 – APRIL 13-15, 2012
- CIMMFest Japanese Movie Screenings[April 14 2012]
- Bilingual Boot Camp: Japanese [April 15]
- Anime Central 2012 – April 27-29, 2012
Topics and discussions in the forum you should take a look at and/or participate in:
- Spring 2012 Anime Lineup!
- Bishoujo Games
- Takarazuka showing
- Currently Reading Discussion!
- Currently Watching Discussion!
Next Anime Meeting
This is a *really* tentative topic for the April Anime Meeting. Since it’s such short notice, and I’m not sure how many people will actually be able to join us, this meeting will only happen if we get over 5 RSVP’s of “Yes” in the next three days. “Maybe/Not sure” will not be counted. This is the only day this month we will be able to host/have a meeting. Sorry!
- May 19th and 20th – Japanese Garden Children’s Festival
- Battle Royal Screening at University of Chicago [May 24]
- SoyCon 5 – July 21-22, 2012
- Anime Midwest 2012 July 6-8, 2012
- Anime Apocalypse [DEC 21-23, 2012]
