About Us

Greetings to all of our members, new and current. Welcome to the Shippensburg Anime Society! We watch newly released anime shows as well as older ones. We have three different meeting times which take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. If you can't show up to certain meetings, feel free to show up to the others. And if you need to leave early, or you show up late, don't worry, you'll always be welcome!

The first meeting of the week is what a lot of us refer to as Main Club. This takes place every Tuesday from 7:00pm until around 10:30pm in Grove Hall Forum. For those of you unfamiliar with it, the building is the main building for business majors. We show 4 shows, usually 2 episodes of each, that range in different genres with a 15 minute break in between the 2nd and 3rd slots. Any major announcements will also be said here as well as on our Facebook page.

On Thursdays, we have what we call Anime Underground or just Underground for short. We show 3 shows in the same way as main club, but it takes place in the CUB at the TV lounge on the top floor next to The Slate office. Underground is a lot more lenient with talking and some of its content, so we tend to just hang out there and joke around while the series are playing. This takes place around 7:00pm to 9:30pm.

Last but not least we've got Anime Arcade. This takes place on Fridays from 5:00pm to around 10:00pm, and is also located in the CUB where Underground is held. We play anime related games, such as visual novels, where we all read for the characters which is a lot of fun and gets everyone involved. If you join during the middle of a game, don't worry, we'll fill you in on any plot points you missed.

Now, for the most exciting event we have is our annual trip to the anime convention Katsucon. The convention takes place in February, and we go for the entire weekend. We usually get to take around 16-20 people with the price per person around $15-25 which will cover the hotel rooms, tickets, and the ride there. We hope to bring as many people as we can, so if you're interested in going, we'll have a sign up paper at the first couple of meetings. The ability to go will depend on how often you come to club activities (any of the three weekly meetings listed above).
