Anime Club was started two years ago by MJH students who were interested in Japanese culture, especially Japanese animation. Most people don't realize that our fascination with anime is not new. It has a long history in the U.S. starting with cartoons you might recognize from the 60's: "AstroBoy" and "Speed Racer." Most anime starts out as a printed comic called "manga."
While most of our members simply enjoy watching and discussing their favorite anime and manga, many of our club members are also gifted artists, writers, and voice actors who like putting together their characters and plot ideas. We hope to turn these character sketches and storyboards into our own MJH manga, and eventually animate them. Members also hope to raise enough money to attend Houston's annual JapanFest in the spring.
