Anime O-Tekku has been Georgia Tech's anime club since 1995. A group of fans put together a student organization that provided a venue in which to watch anime from Japan once a month for a period of time (about 4 to 10 hours). The club grew through a huge mailing list, word-of-mouth, and Georgia Tech community support. Anime O-Tekku is now one of the oldest still-surviving anime clubs in the state, and welcomes new members from Georgia Tech and the surrounding community. The official motto of the club is "Because there's always time to study later."
