Asian media provides events and screenings to a Hampshire's Japanese comic and animation interested students plus anyone who wants to get in on the subculture. Nearly a decade old, Asian media screenings, held once a week, have always been something for these students to look forward to. We have even made a point to screen shows and movies not easily found in the Western hemisphere, making Asian media one of the only places to see many series or films on the big screen in the United States. The group has served as the Hampshire community's only Japanese, Chinese, and general far Eastern culture-related group. Like other long-standing groups, we too have our traditions, perhaps the most well knows being our trip to Anime Boston, among others such as themed screening nights like kawaii (the Japanese word for cute) night and giant robot night. We have begun planning a major "iron chef" type event for the coming semesters which we hope will prove memorable enough to continue in future semesters. Please help us continue to bring the popular culture of the East to the Hampshire community.
Anime! Kung fu flicks! Bollywood! Food! Lots of heckling! And much, much more!
Asian Media meets every Friday at 7 PM in FPH's West Lecture Hall to watch anime, movies, live-action TV shows and whatever weirdness the signers have banging around their laptops, though honestly with our current management it's mostly anime. We screen a few series each semster, show a few movies when we can squeeze it in, have a few theme nights (Robot Night, Nostalgia Night, etc.), and generally enjoy each other's company (with food!). We also take a yearly trip to Anime Boston, which is an enormous amount of fun, and hold an event or two per year if we can get away with it. Anyone and everyone is welcome! We're a very fun, laid-back group that ranges from the casual fan to the cosplaying, figure-collecting Evangelion-obsessee.
Come join us!
We don't always show anime. We're Asian Media, which means we have the opportunity to show movies from various cultures. Have a recommendation? Let the signers know!

After the decline of the old Hampshire Anime Group, the Hampshire Asian Media Society was founded as a more broadly inclusive club in the fall semester of 2000. Although it retained a focus on anime screenings, from the beginning its charter included other Asian media such as giant monsters and martial arts. Despite hitting one of its high points in popularity during the original Japanese release of the anime Full Metal Alchemist, it declined during fall semester 2004, and was no longer a signed group in the following spring semester.
The group was revived in Fall 2005 under the name "Hampshire Asian Media" to continue the focus on screenings of general Asian cinema, in addition to Japanese anime. The first official screening was held on September 22nd, 2005, and consisted of 2 episodes each of the anime, Jungle wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu and Genshiken. Although the weekly screening of Densha Otoko was live-action, the first semester was generally very heavy on anime screenings, and the only scheduled event was a Miyazaki Movie Marathon.
Since the group's second semester, there has been much more in the way of live-action screenings and movies. Events have also become more diverse, including Asian food nights, Chinese movie marathons, Halloween Screenings, and organized group trips to AnimeBoston.
Traditionally, signers have screened Anime Music Videos before the scheduled screening as a way to pass the time as people show up. In the past though, this has also opened up to include live-action music videos, commercials aired in Asia, general crap from the signer's computer, and Jackie Chan turning into Chun Li from Street Fighter. Currently, we marathon a lineup of shows with occasional movie nights, starting off with a brief pre-show of a certain mini-series. Come enjoy yourselves.
