Last Friday's meeting was the last meeting of Oxford Anime Vision for the 2017–18 academic year. Thank you to everyone who came to our events, whether you made it to just one, all of them, or some number in between—I hope everyone enjoyed the year! It has, as always, been a privilege and a pleasure to help run the society.
Oxford Anime Vision turned twenty years old last autumn (we were founded in October 1997) and by (genuinely unplanned) coincidence, we showed one title this year which is almost exactly the same age as OAV: Cowboy Bebop first aired in the spring of 1998.
We might manage to organise a few meet-ups for those of us who're still around over the summer but, assuming things go to plan, our first main meeting for the next academic year will be on Friday 12 October. Have a great summer, and especially good luck to our members who are leaving Oxford for good—do feel free to join us again if you're ever visiting the city in future!
We'll be meeting as normal at 8 PM this Friday in the Saskatchewan Room at Exeter College. This coming week is the seventh of Trinity Term's eight weeks, so we only have two meetings left this academic year—and we have just two episodes left of everything we're watching.
And, since it's week 7, we'll be having a meal before the main meeting on Friday. If you would like to come to the meal as well as the meeting, please sign up in the Facebook group here or email firstname.lastname@example.org 6 PM this Wednesday. Where exactly we go and when the booking is on Friday evening will both depend how many people sign up—I will let everyone know.
OAV will be meeting as normal tomorrow in the Saskatchewan Room at Exeter College at 8 PM. For anyone who's elsewhere and wants to keep track, here is where we are in each show before tomorrow's meeting:
Cowboy Bebop 23
Daily Lives of High School Boys 9
Princess Tutu 23
From the New World 22
Tomorrow we'll be watching one episode of each as normal.
One other notice: Ashleigh's thinking of going to Hyper Japan, a convention/cultural festival in London which will run over 13–15 July. If you're also considering going from Oxford and would like to make a group trip of it, or you're going to be travelling there frome elsewhere but would like to have an OAV meetup while there, talk to her about it at one of our meetings.
