What Is ANO?

ANO, short for Anime In Northwest Ohio is the official Anime student organization of Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green Ohio just outside of Toledo Ohio.

ANO membership is free and open to anyone, and ANO meetings are a great way to unwind after a long week of classes.

Each meeting includes Anime discussion, merryment, and special activities

ANO membership is also one of the ultimate ways to learn about and get involved in planning our annual anime convention, Animarathon.

Regular meetings are held every from to in the Bowen Thompson Student Union located on the main BGSU campus unless otherwise stated on our orgsync page. Each meeting is packed with a screening of five to six anime episodes, and various activities afterwords ranging from fanfiction contests to playing obscure video games.

Every night is a different genre, so every week's meeting is different!
