A H^U^G^E Thank You…

Well, the manga/anime club meetings have been postponed for a few weeks so we can move back into the library.

I want to thank everyone that helped to make this club such a great success! Thank you for joining such a fun, enthusiastic, and devoted group. I’m looking forward to starting up again in our new meeting room (can we say projector and uber-huge screen to watch anime on?) and seeing everyone again. Until then…
