The Knockout: Old School Anime Night: Mobile Suit Gundam + The Big O
January 27 @ 6:30 pm - 9:15 pm
Greetings all! Max here! Welcome to Old School Anime Night!
This event is organized as follows:
6:30 – The Big O: Ep 1
The Big O is a TV series created by Sunrise (same as Gundam) with a lot of noir, batman, western, and kaiju/mech influences. This is one unique anime that many may be familiar with because of its prevalence on Toonami in the early 2000s. “Jeeves, fetch me my mech! I have a city to save!”
7:00 – Original Gundam Trilogy: Movie 1
One of the key franchises that put Sunrise on the map and gave them a long and grand legacy. Gundam revolutionized how the mecha genre was seen by focusing on the soldiers as ordinary people and showing the mechs as weapons of war. Countless spin-offs, games, and toys have created quite the fandom so lets see if we can become Gundam fans ourselves.
After the movie is over, hang out and chat about the films, get food etc.
9:15 – The Knockout hosts free karaoke
This is a 21+ event because it is technically a bar.
