News & Announcements

Week 1

E-mail sent by Daniel Sawyer, Monday, 13th October 2014 @ 3:40pm

Dear all,

I attach a copy of Oxford Anime Vision's termcard for this term. We will issue another version when more events are added to it, but for the weekly meetings this should, all being well, remain correct.

This week's meeting will be on Friday at 8PM in Lecture Room B at The Queen's College. Queen's should be easy to find: the main entrance is on the High Street, and it's a large wooden door set in a high stone wall, with a statue underneath a small domed roof above the gate. We will try to make sure that we have someone outside the gate to meet people and also someone around to show people the way to the lecture theatre. If you arrive late then you can ask the porters how to find the room.

Another reminder that we have a Facebook group, and that if you have any questions you should feel free to email and ask them.

Best wishes,

OAV Secretary

Welcome/Welcome Back!

E-mail sent by Daniel Sawyer, Friday, 10th October 2014 @ 10:50pm

Dear all,

Welcome, if you're new, and welcome back if you're not! If you're on this mailing list and you don't think you should be—welcome, please let me know, and I'll remove you.

Sunday night

We're having a beginning-of-year gathering at Freud, a bar in a big neoclassical building on Walton Street, here, from 8pm onwards on Sunday. All are welcome: current members, freshers and anyone who just happens to be on the mailing list. Some of the committee members should be around to see in the new academic year and have a chat.

Meetings this term

On the Fridays of weeks 2 and 4–8 we will meet at 8pm in the Saskatchewan Room at Exeter College, as usual. We couldn't get the Saskatchewan for the Fridays of weeks 1 and 3 so we're still working on the places and times for those meetings (if you see my hair prematurely greying, it's not caused by the DPhil thesis, but by hunting for OAV rooms...). As soon as we have something sorted out I will issue a proper termcard. We will also try to organise a film showing this term, and we usually go out to eat together in the evening before the meeting in week 7, but we'll send details of those round nearer the time.

Towards the end of Michaelmas term—once everyone's had a chance to decide whether or not to stick around—we will collect a membership fee. We haven't decided this year's rate yet but it's usually around £5 for the whole year. The money covers the costs of next year's Freshers' Fair; surplus may be used to subsidise anything we do this year.


Our opening lineup this year is as follows: Tiger & Bunny, Princess Jellyfish, Shiki, Yamato 2199 and Tsuritama. I will try to remember to post more about each one of these in the Facebook group next week. (Please feel free to join the Facebook group if you want to!)

Meeting format

Our normal meetings consist of one episode from each of the five titles we are watching followed by an episode from something we're not watching as a kind of taster. This last slot is often used as a space to showcase something good or test something which we might watch in full next year; suggestions for it are welcome. We show everything with Japanese audio and English subtitles.

If you have any other questions get in touch!


Best wishes,

OAV Secretary

New Year Update

E-mail sent by Daniel Sawyer, Tuesday, 30th September 2014 @ 9:25pm

Dear all,

I hope you've had a good summer! OAV will be returning, all being well, on the Friday of the first week of term, Friday 17 October. If anyone has free time on Wednesday 8, Thursday 9, or Friday 10 October that they fancy burning by helping out on our stall at Freshers' Fair, let me know.

Like last year, we're planning on having beginning-of-year drinks from 8pm onwards at Freud on Walton Street on the Sunday at the end of 0th week, Sunday 12 October. As usual we'll probably have lots of new people there but returning members will be very welcome!

If anyone's on this mailing list but doesn't want to be on it anymore, do email to say so and I'll take you off.

All best,

OAV Secretary
