Happy New Year! OAV will return on Friday 22 January, Friday next week. We will be in the Saskatchewan Room at Exeter College at 8 PM as usual, and, pleasingly, we have been able to book this room for all eight meetings this term. For anyone who is keeping track or wants to catch up, we will be starting this term with the ninth episode of each of the shows we're watching (Rage of Bahamut, Shirobako, Last Exile, Paradise Kiss and Gankutsuou).
While nothing apart from the regular meetings has definitely been arranged for this term yet, Hillary Term is normally when we have the annual 'Randomthon', an attempt to sample and evaluate some of the titles we might watch next year, and we will probably have some kind of meal in week 7 as usual. There may be other events too, so watch this space!

This week's OAV meeting will not be in the usual place, but rather in Lecture Room A at Queen's College. Queen's is on the north side of the High Street, here, it has a pillared dome right above its front gate, if that's any help spotting it. Veteran members will remember that this is the room we used sometimes last year too. We will be starting at 8 PM on Friday as usual.
This will be the last meeting of this term. The first of our weekly meetings next year will probably be on Friday 22 January. Many thanks to everyone who's come along this term, whether you were at just one of our events or all of them or somewhere in between!

The end of term is nearly upon us, with just two more of the normal Friday meetings to go.
Social -- this Friday
We normally have a meal before the Friday meeting in week 7 of each term, which is this week. This time the plan is to try Thaikhun, the Thai restaurant on George Street, at 6:30 PM. If you want to be included in the booking, email firstname.lastname@example.org or comment on the relevant post on the Facebook group.
Mardock Scramble marathon -- this Saturday
This coming Saturday there will be a marathon showing of all three Mardock Scramble films, in Lecture Room A at Queen's College, starting at 10.30 AM. Contact our member Piotr Nosalik (email@example.com) for more details. Mardock Scramble is a futuristic action series about a vengeful cyborg. I understand that it contains a considerable amount of violence, some sex and some grotesque imagery, so it's a little outside the run of what we'd show in a normal meeting and viewer discretion is advised, or whatever it is they say in these circumstances.
