Come to UNO's first meeting of the spring semester on Monday, January 10th at 2:30pm in 2K9A. We meet Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:30 to 4:30. Everyone is welcome.

United Neo Otaku is a club devoted to fans of Japanese anime, manga, video games and culture. Anime (Japanese animation or cartoons) has gained growing popularity in Japan as well as in different parts of the world. Manga, also becoming popular, are graphic novels that represent different genre such as romance, action, comedy and science fiction. Otaku is a Japanese word referring to people who have a sometimes obsessive interest in anime, manga and video games.

Our main goal in UNO is to learn about and experience Japanese anime, manga, video games and culture with people who share similar interests. Typical activities include watching and discussion anime, discussing manga, anime trivia and fan dubbing. Possible field trips include anime conventions and visits to Japanese markets or other cultural events. If interested, please contact Heather Dowd at extension 434 or for meeting times.
