Saikou Netflix Party - Attack on Titan

To feel a little more connected during the Covid-19 quarantine, we're taking inspiration from our friend DJ Awesomus Prime (who just hosted a Netflix Party at the end of March), we're setting up a Netflix Party to share a viewing of Attack on Titan courtesy of Funimation. So, if you're up for it, join in and connect from a distance as we all try to feel normal during the pandemic since it's looking like we won't be able to get together for one of our regular Anime Nights at The Encounter until early summer.

Here is the link to join the Party, remember to click the red NP logo: https://www.netflix.com/watch/70298554?npSessionId=36b043b8825f835e&npServerId=s163



For up to the minute updates on our Saikou Netflix Party, please RSVP the Facebook Event page we have for the screening: https://www.facebook.com/events/538776496842631/



Attack on Titan Synopsis:

Centuries ago, mankind was slaughtered to near extinction by monstrous humanoid creatures called titans, forcing humans to hide in fear behind enormous concentric walls. What makes these giants truly terrifying is that their taste for human flesh is not born out of hunger but what appears to be out of pleasure. To ensure their survival, the remnants of humanity began living within defensive barriers, resulting in one hundred years without a single titan encounter. However, that fragile calm is soon shattered when a colossal titan manages to breach the supposedly impregnable outer wall, reigniting the fight for survival against the man-eating abominations. After witnessing a horrific personal loss at the hands of the invading creatures, Eren Yeager dedicates his life to their eradication by enlisting into the Survey Corps, an elite military unit that combats the merciless humanoids outside the protection of the walls.

  • Genres: Action, Military, Mystery, Super Power, Drama, Fantasy, Shounen
  • Duration: 24 minutes per episode
  • Rating: R - 17+ (violence & profanity)

SaikouCon 2020, the convention's eighth year! Kick off a new decade with your friends at SaikouCon, the roaring 20s of the new millenium are here, let the party begin! SaikouCon 2020 will take place at The Mountain Laurel Resort located at 81 Treetops Drive, White Haven PA 18661 on August 7, 8, and 9 of 2020. As the new decade begins, we edge closer to the tenth anniversary of the convention... and what a ride those previous years have been! Now that SaikouCon has found a consistent home in Mountain Laurel Resort & Spa, we can finally give our all to the show itself rather than hunting for new digs for half the year's build up time, and we are ready to rock 2020 harder than any year of SaikouCon that has come before.

Saikou Movie Meet Up - Godzilla vs. Kong

Saikou Movie Meet Up - Godzilla vs Kong
Saikou Movie Meet Up - Godzilla vs Kong
+

Just like Godzilla: King of The Monsters, we know this isn't anime, but dang it the SaikouSquad loves them some Kaiju, especially Godzilla! Join us for the giant monster throwdown of the century as Godzilla goes up against Kong with the fate of humanity at stake! Who is your money on for the win?



As with previous Saikou Movie Meet Ups, attendees will be responsible for purchasing their own tickets; until we can guarantee a group of 50 or more we cannot obtain a group rate for movie tickets from any theater, unfortunately. Once advance ticket sales are open, we will post the link to purchase your advance tickets here, here is the link to our Facebook event for this Saikou Movie Meet Up, https://www.facebook.com/events/455167812052798/; we ask that you RSVP there so we can estimate a headcount so we can attempt to sit in proximity to each other. Even though this can be rough now that most theaters in the local area have adopted an assigned seating format for advance and at door tickets following the record shattering release of Avengers: Endgame in 2019.



Godzilla vs. Kong Synopsis:

In a time when monsters walk the Earth, humanity's fight for its future sets Godzilla and Kong on a collision course that will see the two most powerful forces of nature on the planet collide in a spectacular battle for the ages. As Monarch embarks on a perilous mission into uncharted terrain and unearths clues to the Titans' origins, a human conspiracy threatens to wipe the creatures, both good and bad, from the face of the earth forever.
