Exploring the influence of anime on pop culture
Anime is a medium, not a genre – making it a wonderful art form enjoyed by people of all ages. At our regular club meetings, we will watch and discuss animes that made a significant contribution to pop culture. Along the way we’ll also learn about Japanese religion, folklore, language, traditions and customs.
Some of the more 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.
Meetings will be held twice per month, after school at Mukai Farm & Garden (18017 107th Ave SW, Vashon, WA). A bus from VHS & MMS will be provided. We will also hold an occasional screening at the Vashon Theatre. Membership is free to kids ages 12-18 years old. Space is limited, so please be sure to fill out an enrollment form.
