Thank you for replying. It is a bit of a disappointment to find anime isn't a popular topic here. Well, I guess I can think of this as a chance to get the club rolling, like you said.
I know that eightbitsamurai, kleinbl00, arguewithatree, thundara and some others had an anime club going at one point. Perhaps they'd be interested in rekindling it.
I think there is enthusiasm, but the numbers just haven't been there yet. Try it out.
