Slightly expanded from the post on my blog...
So I'd been wanting to see a bunch of my friends lately, so sent out some random emails to people to come by and have some pizza last night along with watching a sampling of anime. It was pretty cool, the group ended up being Ethan, Sean, Emily, Brian, and Selma. I kinda wish I could invite more but my place is kinda tiny and I think we had just the right amount of people before getting claustrophobic. We had some good pizza, some good beer (including one from PA that I really like), and amazing brownies that kicked my ass.
Shows watched (first two episodes of each): Full Metal Panic, Fruits Basket, Naruto, and Azumanga Daioh. I think people liked the first three a bit and the last one broke some folks. That one does tend to be a bit more on the wacky side. I think if I do this again I'm going to show more of Full Metal Panic and Fruits Basket and just do two episodes at a time. (And don't worry Sean, I'll find you some of that stuff with tentacles since you seem so fixated on it.)
I talked to one of the people and he said he was getting overwhelmed a bit by the end, which fits what I was thinking. I'll hopefully give more reports (or maybe have them post some here as to what they thought about it) soon.
Now I just need to get Lyn to watch the first four episodes of Azumanga Daioh with me before she goes on her trip.
