Exploring the influence of anime on pop culture
Mukai Anime Club examines the history of Japanese anime and its influence on pop culture. Along the way we’ll also learn about Japanese religion, folklore, language, traditions and customs. It is important to remember that anime is a medium, not a genre. This makes anime a wonderful art form that can be enjoyed by all age groups – not just little children. Animes that made a significant contribution to the medium will be viewed and discussed. Some of the most influential animes, such as Akira and Ghost in the Shell, may contain at least some mature subject matter.
If parents/guardians have any concerns about whether or not participation in Anime Club is suitable for their child/student, they should consult independent parent resources such as Common Sense Media (commonsensemedia.org) or contact the program director Adam Foster at email@example.com.
Meetings will be held on early release Fridays from 12:45-3pm at Mukai Farm & Garden (18017 107th Ave SW, Vashon, WA). Students that need a ride after school from MMS or VHS can take the #4 bus, exit at Bank & 107th, then follow the signs about a .25 mile to the farm. We will also hold an occasional screening at the Vashon Theatre. Membership is free to kids ages 12-18 years old.
