It's spring break! That means we will not be having a regular meeting next week on 3/21. What we will have, however, is SPRING BREAK ANIME MARATHON! From 10 AM to 10 PM we will be meeting in Moos 2-580 (not our normal room) and watching anime! That's 12 hours of anime watching! Of course, you can come and go as you please, but the more time you can spend watching anime the better! We will have our DVD/BluRay player and access to most legal streaming services, so bring shows you want to watch! We hope to see you there!

Note that the following week (3/28) we will also not have MAS due to many of our admins and members being involved in the local anime convention Anime Detour that is running that weekend! If you're going to Detour, several of our members are running panels, so keep an eye out! We will make another reminder post with more details on all the panels MAS members are involved in closer to the date of the con.

Have a lovely spring break!

We will be having our semi-annual Craptacular night this Thursday 12/20 at 6 PM in Moos 2-520. NOTE: This is not our regular room! If you're unfamiliar with Craptacular, it is when we all gather together after finals to de-stress by watching bad anime, silly anime, dubbed anime, and other ridiculous things. It's a lot of fun, and we will have snacks! Everyone is welcome to come help us heckle some of the worst shows we could find!

Also, voting is now open! If you are a paid member, you should have already received an invitation to vote in your email. If you haven't received this email and you believe you should have, contact us at to sort that out! Voting closes on 12/20 at 11:59 PM. Every vote counts!
