I'm not sure what's going on here, but have you watched any of these Japaheeno guns-and-hooters cartoon movies?

That's your cue to start one in - hold on, lemme check what it says under your avatar - High Point. Googling "High Point NC comics" shows that there are at least two comic shops in the area, so you have places where you can put up flyers advertising a club. Also, it seems like there should be enough geeks at High Point University to get something going over there. Alternately, see if your local library will let you reserve space.

If you do get access to space at HPU or the library but don't have any AV equipment to work with, the big expense is a projector. It looks like you can buy dirt cheap projectors off of eBay or Amazon for less than $70, but they also appear to be near worthless; if you can put $200-$250 or so into the club that should provide you with a solid projector and a nice set of portable speakers. Laptop, projector, speakers, a pile of anime, flyers, and enthusiasm: suddenly, you've got your own Triad Genshiken going on!

I know ECAS is in my area, but work is murdering me with the OT. :(

And there's not much in the way of online resources for them. So I have no idea when/where they meet or what they're up to.

Sounds like you need to send a PM to Macross-Junkie and see if he can give you the skinny.
