Boy, this will be a busy weekend.  We’ll be holding our weekly meeting as usual in Gates B12 on Saturday, 10/13, at 8pm.  We’ll be watching a random from fall season, continuing with ep 2 of Little Busters, ep 5-6 of Kokoro Connect, and hoping that my laptop + chrome + flash + crunchyroll don’t cause a blue screen of death.
Saturday is also Anime Destiny, and I’ll be leaving around 9:30am.  We’ll be back before dinner for sure.  A list of events is here: http://www.calanimedestiny.com/events  There’s plenty of space in the car, so if you are interested in coming just email newtype-officers AT lists.stanford.edu with your phone number.
Lastly, but by far not least, is our first karaoke outing this Sunday, 10/14.  Yay!
If you live on East campus, please meet at Escondido Turnaround by 10:30am.
If you live on West campus, please meet in front of Lagunita also by 10:30am.
It will be at Gamba Karaoke, with Joysound machines.  Last time we checked, they were updated with Japanese music (and plenty of Vocaloid) until June-July 2012.  Hopefully, they will be updated with more, but at least it’ll be that much.
Cheerio~

Thanks for everyone coming to the first meeting last week.  We’ll be having our next meeting tomorrow, Saturday 10/6, 8pm in Gates B12.  We’ll be watching a random from the current Fall season, starting our second weekly show, which due to popular demand will probably Little Busters, and then 2 more episodes of Kokoro Connect.  Don’t worry if you missed last week’s episode 1 and 2, you can watch them at Crunchyroll for free.

Our first Karaoke outing is coming up next week!  It will be 10:30am – 2pm on Sunday, 10/14.  Please fill out this short form if you are interested in coming.

As club members may know, we published a (very short) doujinshi for AOD this spring. We’re aiming for something a bit more voluminous for Fanime this year and hope to add in some short stories as well as perhaps a CD with a PDF of the doujinshi on it and an original song.

For those of you who haven’t seen our doujinshi yet… I’ve uploaded a PDF…

10/16 Anime Destiny

UC Berkeley’s Anime Con, http://animedestiny.silential.com/index.php
A con in the local Bay Area!  I’ll be giving updated panels on Touhou and Vocaloid with new stuff from this summer, so look forward to it!  And, I’ll be giving rides as usual.

10/16 Cosplay.com’s NorCal Fall Gathering
http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=216160
ACK!  Unfortunately, this is the same day as AD!  I really wanted to go to this, but I can’t go to both (this is south of San Jose).  However, if some of you really want to go to this and need a ride, I’ll consider going to this instead.

10/29-10/31 Yaoi-Con
