hmm "anime-niac's" ?

I dunno if im suppose to offended or ammused. :P

but to answer your question, im sure there are random ppl in your area who are into anime. but i know ppl from that area, and they tend to stay to themselves.

I think its something in their water.

I'm in Union City, but I doubt you wanna watch the type of "anime" I watch, nor would anyone sane want to hang out with me.

Omg this is really cool Maybe we should set a day that we can all get together and hangout since it's more Otakus in the bay area than estimated! What days would be good for you guys (Weekends is always good, because I have school during the week, or should I say O.I.C.U has school during the week  8).

I'm usually free during the weekends as well. I could probably host a get together here at my place. Thing is, who would want to come?

That sounds sweet!!!!! I'm cool with it.I'll tell O.I.C.U about the planning. I wonder if anyone else off this website would like to go as well. PM me your address so I'll know how close you live to me.

How about Bay Street in Emeryville?  I think it's a nice mall but lacks presence of anime.   :D

Metreon is easier for me to get to since I don't drive. I'm actually friends with one of the clerks at the Kamakazi Pop kiosk and go talk to her when I'm on breaks during times I'm at my On-call job down at Moscone Center.

Where did you say your place is and what date? Weekend would be nice sense I'm working 4:30-7 M-F

Edit: It would actually be better if the gathering was at like a cafe or something easier to get to.

Hey, took a quick look at the site and if y'all meet in SF, the Cartoon Art Museum is not far from the Metreon (probably the Powell St BART Station is closest).  The Totoro Forest Project Exhibit sounds interesting.  Walking distance to the City Center and Bloomingdales (not to shop necessarily but snack on those ultra tasty but pricey cream puffs in the bottom level).  Currently there's a Halloween Spirit shop open on Market at 5th.

I live over in Alameda, but Oakland is just a bus ride away...and in terms of hanging out in San Francisco I could be down with that. I'd also be open to hanging out somewhere in Oakland. I also wouldn't mind hosting an event or two possibly...ESPECIALLY if anyone enjoys playing Tabletop Games like myself. I own all of Key The Metal Idol, as well as Outlaw star.

Hey, they can't stop Hayward's stupid idea to kick out ALL the theaters and anything fun for the last 10 years. Just recently they realized everyone is going to either Union Landing or Stoneridge and are now trying to build things back up again. ^^

... i work at the theatre in Hayward. There is going to be a limited showing of Sword of the Stranger,  but i asked the managers and they dont know if we're getting it. Maybe if people are interested, a gathering at union landing wen they show it?

I live in Alameda, which is Oakland's neighbor. I'm just a bus ride away from being over by 12th street Oakland.

I agree though, that we NEED to set a DATE, TIME, and PLACE for an Oakland Gathering!!

I propose Date: Friday Feb 20th. 2pm. At:

It's A Grind. Coffee House
555 12th St Ste 105
Oakland, CA 9460

If anyone has a better meeting, then post it!! It's time to either put up some meetings, or dismantle this thread as it no longer serves a purpose.
