at tonight's animanga club we talked about starting up an anime/manga zine that would have reviews, other features/writing, fan art, your own characters/other art, stuff about Japanese language and culture--really anything related to the world of anime and manga that you all want to contribute.
we also talked about:
1. editorial board! can everyone who expressed interest in either editing writing or coordinating/editing art please post and remind us of your names?
2. frequency! does about once a month sound good? if that's our goal, we've got to get rolling on SUBMISSIONS for our very first issue.
3. SUBMISSIONS! Fan art! Your own invented characters! Other related drawings! Photos of cosplay! Reviews of movies you've seen or manga you've read! Reviews of Japanese restaurants or candy or....Minilessons on Japanese language or culture! Rants and raves! Your editorial board (see #1) want to see what you've got!
4. name! we need one. post ideas here and let's try to decide in, say, 2 weeks (that would be the 21st of February).
what am I forgetting? you had so many great ideas I'm sure I'm missing something.
By the way, just to connect blogname with face, I'm Sarah, the spikyheaded one with glasses.
