If you’re the type of person that enjoys binge watching anime, cosplaying, reading mangas, or you’re interested but don’t know where to start, then the anime club is for you. 

Meeting every Tuesday and Thursday at 1 p.m. in Berrier Hall room BH3, the anime club is open to all who share a passion for anime or who are interested in joining the anime community. 

“If you’ve never watched anime before and you’re interested, it's a good way to expose yourself and get recommendations from other students,” said Daniel Melin, club advisor and Content Developer and Social Media Specialist at LCCC.

The anime club is a no-judgment zone and helps students connect with people who share the same passions.

Prior to COVID-19, the club had a robust membership, however, like many other clubs, membership has declined. 

“I feel like there’s not enough word of it out there,” said Owen Redmond, club president.

The club members are planning more events to help gain exposure. Last semester, they held a movie night and watched “Weathering with You,” directed by Makoto Shinkai. 

This semester they are planning more fun events for the LCCC community to enjoy. Another movie night with activities and anime-inspired food is being discussed.

The club members also talked about many future activities, like going to conventions and cosplaying, as well as games they can enjoy during meetings. One game they suggested was opening song wars, which is a game to determine which anime opening is more popular within the club. 

Overall, the anime club is a place students can go to decompress and have a little fun. College can be very stressful, so surrounding yourself with like-minded people can help.
