|St. Louis Anime Meetup Group|
|We meet from 5 pm - 9 pm the 1st & 3rd Fridays of each month & mostly watch anime at our meetings, but discussions do break out at times.|
We currently meet at the:
U. City Public Library
6701 Delmar Blvd, University City, MO 63130
Near St. Louis, MO
1 (314) 727 - 3150 (library's #, not the clubs)
In one of the upstairs Conference Rooms (now primarily room 1), located in their Art Gallery. I try to keep the door to the room we use cracked & usually place the Art Box or slip cover for one of the series we're watching that day, or some other anime related item, on a table visible through the narrow window.
(easiest way to the corridor we're in is to take the elavator; we're around the corner to the right; usually the 2nd door on the right)
We usually meet the 1st & 3rd Fridays of every month, unless Conventions fall on one weekend (in which I move one or both meetings) or REALLY severe weather closes the Library or make the roads too dangerous or impossible to travel on (which rarely happens). I may also move meetings if they fall too close to/ on BIG Holidays.
Since I've shown all of the anime movies I have that don't tie directly into a series, I'm now showing 2 sets of series at alternating Meetups. For details on which set of series we're watching, check the Events' pages or visit our Home site's Message Board (which I update the info at the top when I schedule the next meeting).
For movies that do tie into a series we're watching, a special Features Night will likely be held on the night that series was scheduled. For example, when K-On!! ends, the following 1st Friday I will show its movie, along w/ a movie from another series that ended & has an AU movie.
Also, we've started holding Extra Meetups in months w/ 5 Fridays (on that 5th Friday). These are handled differently than normal Meetups & are not posted on these pages. They are scheduled in the calendar on our home site, but do not get threads in the Message Board. Since we meet at a member's home (whose may change) to Marathon a 11-14 ep series (average total run time is around 6 hours; we also tend to [sometimes stop to] eat lunch in the middle -- you are expected to bring money for food), I handle details via E-mail instead (so as not to be publicly posting personal addresses, etc.). In order to qualify for a 5th Friday E-mail, you must attend normal Meetups & I must have your E-mail address & know whose it is.
(It is rare Meetups have to be moved after scheduling, & rarer still cancelled, but both have happened.)
Things we may discuss are:
I show a range of anime, from most Genres. All 13 & up are welcome; though, some Features nights (if we have any more) may require parental concent, due to the content or rating of the Feature (ex. Ghost in the Shell is rated R). First-timers, the elevator takes you directly to the corridor the room is in (Art Gallery).
Occasionally, I host games of Collateral Damage: the Anime Board Game. It has been a while since we've played the game, due to disinterest by a majority of regular attendees.
Some of our members attend Anime St. Louis, & a few A-Cen, when they can/ have the money.
