We showed Paradise Kiss last year.
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.
Yeah, to be fair, there's a chance that many of them simply signed up during freshers, or are busy elsewhere (courses and what have you). Still, for them to join, they must have an interest, small or large, otherwise they wouldn't have joined, I wouldn't think. After all, I've always considered anime to be something you either understand or you don't.
I think this is a positive step forward. Maybe include snippets from the series you're airing (or even trailers) that capture the eye candy to entice people that wouldn't usually go.
Good work either way.

It's funny how you were talking about Anime Aiko; I usually tell everyone, they think I'm weird but meh
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
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.
Oh no, for sure. If you're perfectly content and comfortable in expressing your interest, people won't judge or think less of you, not at all. I'm generalizing the average anime fan who may be less inclined to feel so open. In my case, contrary to how I come across on TSR, in person I'm very discreet about my love of anime, particularly since moving to London.
I'm surprised that guy openly admitted to liking Bible Black. I suppose he could have said worse.
And yeah, I agree entirely about anime delivering something that nothing else does. It's unique, that's for sure.
