This page is a catalog for any get togethers that aren't a standard showing. Any party or gathering we organize will be listed here, as well as other anime related happenings we've heard about.
We have a Twitter feed, which we use for event-specific communications. If you're planning on attending an event that we're organizing (and you have a smartphone or one that can get text messages), you should follow us so you can keep abreast of any last-minute changes or updates.
The votes are in. We'll be holding a movie night on Friday, Nov 16th, where we'll be showing the film "The Secret World of Arrietty" from Studio Ghibli. The showing will be in Sever 103 (in the Yard) and run from 7-9pm. Hope to see you there!
HAS and the Harvard College Comics Club will be holding a joint workshop about storyboarding. It will be touching on things like comic making basics, how to make a solid story out of an idea, how to create frames, lettering, a bit on how to draw with tablets, and other stuff along those lines. This is a great opportunity for illustrators who want to learn to write, for writers who want to expand their skills, and those who have never drawn comics but want to learn.
The workshop is being led by Emilie Pitre, and is happening on Saturday, October 20 from 4:00 - 5:30 pm in Sever 205. All materials will be provided, so don't worry about that.

Both Movies will be in place of the normal showing, and will be followed by a discussion about Satoshi Kon and his impact on anime.
