    It's quickly improving. When I first joined, the committee at the time tended to stick together, there was no real attempt at socializing or anything. A lot of people stopped going because of that. I was pretty introverted myself at the time so I felt uncomfortable trying to approach them, I only continued going because I liked the series they were showing. :p:

    Then I joined the committee in my second year (after asking for advice on another forum - I was so nervous back then). :o: The first part of the year was pretty much the same; they spoke a bit more to me since I was 'one of them', but there wasn't an awful lot of mixing with the members. I also didn't get any choice when it came to the series they were showing.

    This year has been completely different. The turnouts at the socials have never been higher, there's no divide between members and the committee and things are just far more fun. Everyone on the committee got to choose at least three series I think (apart from the treasurer who had nothing to suggest and trusted our choices). Because of that the series we're showing are a lot more varied and cater for more tastes than before. :yes: And for the first time we're experimenting and actively trying to find ways to improve it, first with the hallowe'en screening and now with one for each of the committee members.

    Suffice to say, I think it's awesome (now at least).
    Something I've observed, particularly in the UK (although this is applicable to Asia as well), is the stigma attached to enjoying and expressing an interest in anime and manga. Unfortunately, as a consequence, many students need the encouragement and confidence to feel more liberal. There's so many students that have probably seen and enjoyed anime but haven't had the inclination to go further for this reason alone. Furthermore, I think it's safe to say that many people watch anime alone and seldom express their interests openly. This is why it's important to remove the tarnished stereotype that anime is for the socially inept and for the nerdy, - but for everyone. I've encountered the unlikeliness of people that 'secretly' enjoy anime (me included), that never had the incentive to join their university's society in fear of being judged. What Aber is doing is absolutely fantastic. It's creating a society that is open and varied, - not one that confirms to the clique but allows newcomers to watch series they probably never associated with anime. It's a bit like Paradise Kiss for my friends who were fashion students or the Ghibli films.

    Anyway, I'm tired and I haven't proof read this post, so it probably doesn't make any sense. In essence, I admire your determination to make anime more assessable to those who wouldn't usually be open to joining a society. I'm typing this with regret for not joining mine. In many ways this is primarily why I'm participating on the TSR society, to make up for my mistake.

    We showed Paradise Kiss last year. :yes: [/randomness]

    Over 100 people signed up to Aberanime, but no more that 35 have ever attended in a single screening, at most. I imagine a lot of them have other things to do, or they just signed up to everything they saw during the excitement of freshers fair, but I do have to wonder how many of them are just too nervous.

    Since we're starting all new series next Thursday, I've been thinking of trying to word my email in a way that invites those who haven't gone to any screenings so far (for whatever reason), since starting to go now when we're showing the first episodes will be easier than once we're half way through them all. :yes:

    It's funny how you were talking about Anime Aiko; I usually tell everyone, they think I'm weird but meh :p: However, it's been getting really popular in my school, especially the likes of Naruto and Bleach.
    One time we were talking about anime and some nerd in my class said he watches my Black Bible my friend ROFL'd, she told me it was Hentai. We Lol'd for about 5 minutes with everyone looking at us weirdly until we told them "basically he watches pornographic animation", poor guy, the whole class were laughing their knickers off :giggle:
    I don't know why I just told that story but I think it's quite relevant to what you're talking about.. or maybe not.

    We were talking about anime today and most of my friends seem to think it's like cartoons and keep asking me when I'm going to grow out of it.
    Anime is just another fantasy, adventure sort of thing. There's nothing else that can really provide what anime does.. Like I'd replace an episode of an anime with Eastenders or Making the Band, psh.

    People were confused enough when I mixed up the location and date and spelled my name wrong in the email a week or so back; I do a good enough job of looking like an idiot without trying :p:
