OAV will be meeting as normal tomorrow in the Saskatchewan Room at Exeter College at 8 PM.
One other piece of news: on Wednesday 27 June (that's Wednesday of week 9) the new anime film Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms will be shown around the UK. The film's an original story, and it's the directorial debut of the prolific anime screenwriter Mari Okada, who's written a whole bunch of shows including Anohana and Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans.
For those who'll be in Oxford after the end of term, it's screening at the George St Odeon and at the leisure centre Vue. You can find links to those showings, and search for screenings near you if you're going to be elsewhere in the UK, here.
After our unusual first-week absence, Oxford Anime Vision will be meeting this Friday at 8 PM in the Saskatchewan Room at Exeter College as usual!
For anyone who's fallen behind and wants to catch up, this is where we got to at the end of last term (i.e., as far as you'll want to have watched to be up to speed for this week's meeting, not the episodes we'll be watching this week!):
Cowboy Bebop 18
Daily Lives of High School Boys 5
Princess Tutu 18
From the New World 17
Welcome back from the committee! We’ve had trouble booking a room for this week, and at this point it looks like we won’t have a venue for this Friday. We were also struggling to find a projectionist for this Friday. On the plus side, we have been able to book the Saskatchewan Room as normal for all the other weeks of term.
Consequently, we’ve decided that our best option is to scratch this week’s meeting: we will not be meeting this Friday.
But we will be meeting every Friday for the next seven weeks, weeks 2–8 of Trinity Term, at 8 PM in the Saskatchewan Room, starting with Friday next week (4 May).
To account for the lost time in our schedule we’ll remove Flag—since there was already some discussion of doing that—and show an extra episode at one meeting for each of the other four titles we’re watching (weeks 2–5), leaving us with three meetings at the end of the year in which we can have two randoms (weeks 6–8).
We’re sorry that we couldn’t have a meeting this week!
