I'll see what I can do about this. Everybody's busy with returning to school and stuff right now, so attendance to any meeting in September tends to bottom out. We do have 25 members listed on Facebook though. Would a screen shot of members from there be okay?

OMG THIS IS PERFECT TIMING
I just started the anime club at my college last spring and this is our first official year. I would just cry tears of joy if we could win this for the club, I hope my members would be up for this. I know the perfect time we could do this.

My mind is formulating a picture, and we may be able to get around 50 people in the picture.....

I think I've got this if the club agrees to take the picture.

I don't think that would happen. I'm going to be completely honest here, but the relationship and romancy stuff that happens in anime/manga doesn't really relate/exist in the real world. Sure it can happen, but it's rare. Especially when a guy tries to be romantic, most of the time the girl will just find it creepy.

Yes, you are right. Romance in anime and romance in real life are not the same. But when a guy is romantic, most of the time girls find it creepy? Really? Maybe you've just been pulling the wrong moves lately. A guy can be very romantic without being creepy, maybe you should find out how to do that before saying "most of the time". Maybe ask the girls here how to not be creepy?

It sounds like you've got a chip on your shoulder and these Free! cosplayers (who obviously have taken the time to sculpt their bodies to match nearly impossible anime proportions) have been the ones who knocked it off.

So you think it's "gay" for guys to use their sex appeal in cosplay such as Free? Do you think it's "lesbian" for girls to use their sex appeal in cosplay in general?

Girls might go crazy (a little bit), but try asking them out. They will more then likely presume that you are gay. I'd rather not even take the chance. I'm not homophobic, I just believe it's something that shouldn't be exploited for amusement.

As a matter of fact I do. And it is gay to say "let's get good looking guys and stand next to each other romantically dripping wet with water." That would be classified as gay my friend. I think both parties are wrong for doing it if they aren't gay. If they are gay then I don't have a problem with it. If a girl wants to use her sex appeal as a solo, then go ahead. I will enjoy it. Just don't label me a creep/perv for something that was intentionally posted to look sexy.

Also, I believe that girls like being romanced. BUT! Only to people they know and are familiar with. If a guy was acquainted with a girl, not friends but they knew of each other, and he were to say, "You were always there for me, and that’s all I needed. Just you." - I feel like most girls would find that person creepy and/or a perv. BUT if you were to say that to a person who you have known for a long time and they new you for a long time, then I think that would be romantic.
You often see these lines in anime where the characters have only known each other for a very short period of time and it just doesn't relate to the real world at all.

Convinced my college anime club to participate ^^ Perfect timing too, since our "convention" (aka, school event lol) is next weekend! We'll have an awesome pic of everyone in cosplay.

I might as well give it a go! My school's anime club is really new, so this might be something cool to help get everyone to know each other!
