Week 3 screenings [Jan. 28th, 2008|12:25 pm]
UEA AnimeSoc

Hello.

Thanks to those who showed up for the Video Games social last week, I think it went pretty well. On the note of socials, if any of you are interested in having another 24hr screening this semester, would you like to suggest any series's that we could show? Ideally, we are looking for two 26 episode series's, one of which is a comedy. The only other rules are it cannot be something that we are already screening this semester (or was shown at the last 24hr event) and it cannot be too offensive so suggestions that are too violent or fanservicey are apt to be ignored.

Anyway, here's what we're screening in week 3:

Tuesday 29th January - 7pm, Union House 1.33

School Rumble - episode 14
Kino's Journey - episode 2
Kamichu - episode 9
Noein - episode 13
Scrapped Princess - episode 14
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - episode 13
xxxHoLiC - episode 13

Thursday 31st January - 7pm, Union House 1.33

Howl's Moving Castle
Oh! Edo Rocket - episodes 5 + 6

We tend to congregate in the blue half of the Union Bar about an hour before each screening (6pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays) for a drink and a chat. If you'd like to join us, we'd be very pleased to see you!

Hi everyone.

Hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year!

This semester, please be aware that both the tuesday and thursday screenings will run from 7pm-11pm. We negotiated an extra hour so that we can have a decent length break without getting into trouble for running over our alotted time. Please be sure that the room is completely tidied and you are out at 11pm though (if not earlier) or this priviledge will be taken away from us and we'll be forced to rush through screenings as we did last semester.

As we finished two series's last semester, 'Paranoia Agent' has been replaced with 'Kino's Journey' and 'Mahoraba: Heartful Days' with 'Oh! Edo Rocket'. In week 5, we'll have a vote to make sure that you're all satisfied with these choices.

Don't forget that this Wednesday is SocMart II (from about 10.30am-4.30pm in the LCR) so please stop by to support us if you're not too busy. If you know of anyone who is interested in joining the anime society but has not yet done so, please be sure to direct them to us there.

Anyway, here is what we are screening in Week 1:

Tuesday 15th January - 7pm, Union House 1.33

School Rumble - episode 12
Kino's Journey - episode 1
Kamichu - episode 7
Noein - episode 11
Scrapped Princess - episode 12
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - episode 11
xxxHoLiC - episode 11

Thursday 17th January - 7pm, Union House 1.33

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind
Oh! Edo Rocket - episodes 1 + 2

[music |The 'X-Files' Theme]

Hi everyone.

This week, we will be screening an episode of 'Mahoraba' instead of 'xxxHoLiC' at the Tuesday screening as this is the only way that we will get the series finished before the holidays. 'Mahoraba' will be replaced next semester with 'Oh! Edo Rocket', provided it has finished by the New Year. If not, we'll have to think up something else really, really fast. 'Paranoia Agent' also finishes this week, and so starting from the first Tuesday back after the holidays we will be screening 'Kino's Journey' in instead.

This Friday we will be also holding a social in Nelson Court Common Room B. The event begins at 6.10pm and please bring your own drinks and snacks. Alcohol, however, is not permitted at the event due to university restrictions so make sure your beverages of choice are of the non-alcoholic variety.

Anyway, here is what we are screening in Week 12:

Tuesday 11th December - 8pm, Union House 1.33

School Rumble - episode 11
Paranoia Agent - episode 13
Kamichu - episode 6
Noein - episode 10
Scrapped Princess - episode 11
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - episode 10
Mahoraba: Heartful Days - episode 23

Thursday 13th December - 8pm, Union House 1.33

Tokyo Godfathers
Mahoraba: Heartful Days - episodes 24, 25 + 26

Friday 14th December - 6.10pm, Nelson Court Common Room B

CHRISTMAS SOCIAL!

[music |'Suddenly, Seymour' from 'Little Shop of Horrors']

Hi everyone.

Due to technical difficulties last week (Nick screwed up the DVDs) we didn't show episode 20 of 'Mahoraba'. Fear not, we will find some way to finish the series before the end of term. We're still debating on how...

Also, as last week we skipped an episode of 'GiTS' to show more 'Paranoia Agent', this week we'll skip an episode of 'Noein'. This means that we will definitely get 'Paranoia Agent' finished by the end of the semester and so will be able to show something new in its place after Christmas. I'll try and think of what over this week so that I can let you know next week.

Please notice that this Thursday's screening will not be held in the usual room, but will be in Nelson Court Common Room B. We'll still be meeting in the Blue Bar from 7pm though.

Anyway, here is what we are screening in Week 11:

Tuesday 4th December - 8pm, Union House 1.33

School Rumble - episode 10
Paranoia Agent - episode 11
Kamichu - episode 5
Paranoia Agent - episode 12
Scrapped Princess - episode 10
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - episode 9
xxxHoLiC - episode 10

Thursday 6th December - 8pm, Nelson Court Common Room B

Grave of the Fireflies
Mahoraba: Heartful Days - episodes 20, 21 + 22

Week 10 screenings [Nov. 25th, 2007|03:30 pm]
UEA AnimeSoc

Hi everyone.

Sorry about the difficulties on Thursday that prevented us showing two of the promised series's. This was intirely Big Nick's fault and he'll never do it again.

If you were there on Thursday, you would have also been told about our idea to get some Anime Society hoodies printed. We can't go ahead with this unless people are willing to buy them, and possibly provide an upfront donation of no more than £5 towards the printing cost. Please let us know if you are interested, and don't say you will definitely buy one unless you are 100% prepared to as this would be a waste of our funds. More details can be found on this thread --> http://animesoc.eamped.com/post484.html#484

Anyway, here's what we're screening in week 10:

Tuesday 27th November - 8pm, Union House 1.33

School Rumble - episode 9
Paranoia Agent - episode 9
Kamichu - episode 4
Noein - episode 9
Scrapped Princess - episode 9
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - episode 9
xxxHoLiC - episode 9

Thursday 29th November - 8pm, Union House 1.33

Metropolis
Mahoraba: Heartful Days - episodes 18, 19 + 20

Hi everyone.

Thanks to everyone who turned up for the 24 hour marathon. Lots of people lasted the whole event and it was enjoyed by all. Due to its popularity, we will certainly be holding one next semester as well.

This Thursday, instead of holding a movie screening, we will be showing five first episodes of series's that only started this season. If you enjoy any, I'm sure that Nick or Rupert will be able to help you get hold of them easily. As on Tuesday screenings, the break will be after the third episode we screen.

Anyway, here's what we're screening in week 9:

Tuesday 20th November - 8pm, Union House 1.33

School Rumble - episode 8
Paranoia Agent - episode 8
Kamichu - episode 3
Noein - episode 8
Scrapped Princess - episode 8
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - episode 8
xxxHoLiC - episode 8

Thursday 22nd November - 8pm, Union House 1.33

Minami-Ke - episode 1
Baccano - episode 1
Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei - episode 1
Moyashimon - episode 1
Blue Drop - episode 1
Mahoraba: Heartful Days - episodes 16 + 17

Week 8 screenings AND 24 Hour Marathon! [Nov. 12th, 2007|08:27 pm]
UEA AnimeSoc

damned_warrior

[mood |chipperchipper]
[music |'Tentacles' from 'Shoggoth on the Roof']

Hi everyone.

Remember when I said I'd never leave it till the last minute to send out an email again? I lied.

For those of you who were there last Tuesday, you will know that the series that was chosen to replace 'Hataraki Man' is 'Kamichu'. As this is only a 13 episode series, when it finishes we'll replace it with another 13 episode series to take us through until the end of term.

At the last movie screening, someone requested that we show 'Blood: The Last Vampire' as a film. As this is only short, we're also showing the 'xxxHoLiC' OVA to fill in the time. This movie does not require you to have seen the 'xxxHoLiC' series to be understood. It's very enjoyable even if you are unfamiliar with it. We're also reshowing episode 14 of 'Mahoraba' as this episode could not be totally screened last week due to technical issues.

This Friday is also our long-awaited 24 hour marathon screening. These events are very informal. You can come and go as you please during them if you don't think you can survive the whole thing, but you will be heavily commended if you do last the whole event. Please bring blankets and pillows as, although we ask for the heating in the Congregation Hall to be left on, it does tend to get a bit chilly in there. There will be a kettle and toaster on hand for you to use, but you have to provide your own food and drink. There will be a 20 minute break after every 4 episodes (or so) to give you chance to prepare food. May I please remind you that no alcohol or smoking will be permitted in the Congregation Hall, and anyone who tries to do so will be removed. It is a tradition for people attending the marathon to bring plushies with them to keep us company during the long event. This is not necessary for you to attend but hey, it's fun. It is also recommended that you bring a camera because it is fun and we like having evidence to catalogue our sanity levels throughout the screening. In case you don't know, the Congregation Hall is the building opposite the main campus bus stop (sort of) and room 01.07 is the room on the left of the downstairs corridor, next to the toilets. The event will begin at 7pm on the Friday and we would appreciate the help in setting up the room if you could come a bit earlier than this.

Anyway, here's what we're screening in week 8:

Tuesday 13th November - 8pm, Union House 1.33

School Rumble - episode 7
Paranoia Agent - episode 7
Kamichu - episode 2
Noein - episode 7
Scrapped Princess - episode 7
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - episode 7
xxxHoLiC - episode 7

Thursday 15th November - 8pm, Union House 1.33

Blood: The Last Vampire
xxxHoLiC: A Midsummer Night's Dream
Mahoraba: Heartful Days - episodes 14 + 15

Friday 16th November - 7pm, Congregation Hall 01.07

Neon Genesis Evangelion - episodes 1 - 24
The End of Evangelion
Ouran High School Host Club - episodes 1 - 26

We tend to congregate in the blue half of the Union Bar about an hour before each screening (7pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays) for a drink and a chat. If you'd like to join us, we'd be very pleased to see you!

Hi everyone.

I'm so sorry that this is so late. I'll never leave sending the updates this late again. I've just been waiting to find out what we'll be screening this week instead of 'Hataraki Man' (which, for those of you who were not present, was the only series voted out last week). As I still do not know what we're showing, I am going to bring a couple of DVDs of series's that we have not shown at all in the last two years to the screening and leave the choice up to you. The selection will certainly include 'Cowboy Bebop' and 'Mushi-Shi' - as only is highly regarded and the other is very good, but few people have seen it - but I'll see if I can find anything else as well.

Just so as you all know, screenings will have to move a lot faster now as we've had a complain about us being in the room over our alotted time. We have to have the room totally tidy and emptied by 11pm, and so we'll probably have to make the break shorter, not hang around so long at the start of the screenings and tidy away really fast at the end. I'd really appreciate it if more people helped us tidy away too, as if we get another complaint like this it is entirely possible that the society will be banned from meeting on campus.

Despite the fact that it is reading week, screenings will run as normal this week. Please note, as there still has been some confusion about this, that our Thursday screenings will be at 8pm at least until the end of the semester. This means we meet in the blue bar at 7pm for these screenings.

Anyway, here's what we're screening in week 7:

Tuesday 6th October - 8pm, Union House 1.33

School Rumble - episode 6
Paranoia Agent - episode 6
~Mystery Anime~ - episode 1
Noein - episode 6
Scrapped Princess - episode 6
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - episode 6
xxxHoLiC - episode 6

Thursday 8th November - 8pm, Union House 1.33

Princess Mononoke
Mahoraba: Heartful Days - episodes 13 + 14

We tend to congregate in the blue half of the Union Bar about an hour before each screening (7pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays) for a drink and a chat. If you'd like to join us, we'd be very pleased to see you!

Week 6 screenings AND Walking Tour of Norwich [Oct. 27th, 2007|04:15 pm]

Hi everyone.

Please note that we are back in Room 1.33 this week, but still at the later time of 8pm on Thursdays. All of our Thursday screenings will be at this time until the end of the semester now. Sorry for any inconvienences that this may cause.

Also, this week we will be holding the votes to decide which Tuesday series' we continue watching and which we replace. Due to a request from one of you, after each episode I will stop the screening and ask for a show of hands from each of you. I'll announce what the new series' will be in next week's email. Please also remember to vote, and not be indifferent. Most of the current series are around 26 episodes long and so if you don't like them, and refrain from voting, you may be forced to watch them for the rest of the year. We are all nice and the society is a democracy so don't feel nervous about expressing your opinion.

Please also note our Saturday social event this week. We'll meet at the main bus stop on campus and go on from there, and we may end up in a pub or other eatery if time permits. If you would like further information on this event, please contact our lovely social officer, Nick (Pwaa).

Also, if you're interested, our Anime Society Manifesto for this year is now up on the forum for you to scrutinise. You can find it here ---> http://animesoc.eamped.com/topic58.html

Anyway, here's what we're screening in week 6:

Tuesday 30th October - 8pm, Union House 1.33

School Rumble - episode 5
Paranoia Agent - episode 5
Hataraki Man - episode 5
Noein - episode 5
Scrapped Princess - episode 5
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - episode 5
xxxHoLiC - episode 5

Thursday 1st November - 8pm, Union House 1.33

The Girl who leapt through Time
Mahoraba: Heartful Days - episodes 11 + 12

Saturday 3rd November - 1pm, Campus Bus Stop

Walking Tour of Anime/Manga shops of Norwich

We tend to congregate in the blue half of the Union Bar about an hour before each screening (7pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays) for a drink and a chat. If you'd like to join us, we'd be very pleased to see you!
