Second AnimeSoc meeting!

E-mail sent by Member 205eff7, Tuesday, 17th October 2017 @ 5:25pm

Hello all!

Just letting you know that the next AnimeSoc meeting is this Friday, October 20th. 

The line-up will be largely the same as the first session - Cowboy Bebop, The Great Passage, Princess Tutu, Time of Eve and From The New World. We'll also be showing a first episode of a random series hand-picked by the Committee members - you'll find out what it is at the meeting! 

In terms of location, we're in the Saskatchewan Room in Exeter College again, which is along Turl St (there'll be a member at the door to guide new members in). 

Afterwards, as is customary, there will be late-night ice cream (or pizza bagels, or both) at the G&D's on St Aldate's St. 

Very best wishes (and have an excellent weekend),

Isabella




























 

1st anime society meeting; Perfect Blue in the cinema

E-mail sent by Member 205eff5, Wednesday, 11th October 2017 @ 10:55pm

Dear all,

Here are Oxford Anime Vision's notices for week 1!

1. Our first formal meeting will be this Friday, at 8 PM in the Saskatchewan Room at Exeter College. The entrance to Exeter College is the northernmost college entrance on the eastern side of Turl Street in the city centre. We'll try to station someone at the door to help guide new members in.

We'll be watching the first episodes of our opening lineup (Cowboy Bebop, The Great Passage, Princess Tutu, Time of Eve and From the New World) and finishing the meeting with a 'taster' episode of something else. Everything will be shown with Japanese audio and English subtitles.

Afterwards, as is our custom, we'll head out to the G&D's on St Aldate's Street to get some ice cream and chat.

2. Satoshi Kon's anime film Perfect Blue will be shown in UK cinemas for one night only this Halloween (which is Tuesday of week 4 in the Oxford term). There will be screenings at three cinemas in Oxford: at the Odeon on George Street at 6:45 PM, at the Phoenix Picturehouse on Walton Street at 8:45 PM and at the Vue at the leisure centre at the Kassam Stadium at 7:30 PM. You can find links to these screenings at http://perfectbluemovie.co.uk/.

Perfect Blue's a psychological thriller, and it's a good watch, though it's not necessarily an easy watch—it contains violence (sometimes sexual violence) and nudity, and it attempts to undermine your sense of reality; basically, it's being shown on Halloween for a reason! I
 will be going to the 6.45 PM screening at the Odeon, and I'm happy to buy tickets for anyone who wants to come along—get in touch with me by the end of this Saturday (14 October) either by emailing oxanimevision@gmail.com or by commenting on the equivalent post in our Facebook group. But you are of course also very welcome to arrange your own tickets to that screening or to either of the other two!

Best wishes,

Daniel

Oxford Anime Vision Start-of-Year Notices

E-mail sent by Member 205eff5, Thursday, 5th October 2017 @ 9:31pm

Dear all,

Welcome to everyone who signed up to our mailing list at Freshers' Fair, and welcome back to all our returning members!

1. We’re having an informal social gathering at The Mitre pub on the High Street this coming Sunday (8 October) from 7.30pm onwards. Everyone is welcome, both existing members and freshers; if you're new and curious about the society, this is a good chance to meet some of the committee, ask any questions you have, and have a relaxed drink (not necessarily alcoholic!) before the term really kicks off. Look for the a table at the back of the pub with an ‘OAV’ sign on it.

2.
Our first formal meeting will be on Friday of week 1, Friday 13 October, at 8 PM in the Saskatchewan Room at Exeter College. The entrance to Exeter is the northernmost college entrance on the eastern side of Turl Street in the city centre. We'll try to station someone at the door to help guide new members in.

We'll be watching the first episodes of our opening lineup (Cowboy Bebop, The Great Passage, Princess Tutu, Time of Eve and From the New World) and finishing the meeting with an episode of something else. Everything will be shown with Japanese audio and English subtitles.

Afterwards, as is our custom, we'll head out to the G&D's on St Aldate's Street to get some ice cream and chat.

3. Our meetings will continue on Friday evenings throughout the term. We have the room at Exeter booked for the majority of weeks this term, including the first three meetings, and will update you when we have a full term-card. Later in the term we'll organise a film night, and we'll go out for a meal together before the meeting in week 7 (24 November).

OAV does charge a membership fee, but we collect this late in Michaelmas Term, once people have had a chance to decide whether they like what we do (the fee will be £5, and the money goes towards renting the stall at the next Freshers' Fair).

4. You might also be interested in joining our Facebook group. All important messages are duplicated across this mailing list and the Facebook group, so those who prefer not to use FB
 should never miss any OAV business. However, the FB group is also a space for informal discussions, for members to arrange things among themselves, and for minor notices.

If you ever decide that you'd rather not be on our mailing list, do get in touch and we will be very willing to remove your details.

Best wishes,

Daniel
