News & Announcements

New shows; randomthon this Saturday

E-mail sent by Member 205eff5, Thursday, 15th February 2018 @ 10:17am

Dear all,

We'll be meeting as normal this Friday evening at 8 PM in the Saskatchewan Room at Exeter College. Last Friday we started two new shows, Flag and Daily Lives of High School Boys, so we’ll be continuing on with those and with Cowboy Bebop, Princess Tutu and From the New World.

This coming Saturday (17 Feb) we'll have our annual randomthon from 2 to 6 PM in the Saskatchewan Room. We don't have a full schedule ready but we're planning to show Show Genroku Rakugo Shinju's first episode (which is double-length) in the first block.

The randomthon is a screening at which we watch through a bunch of first episodes of anime which we're considering showing in full next year or in some future year. It's a chance for the committee to canvass members' opinions about the next year. I'll be bringing a list of some of the other things we're considering putting on next year and we can talk about those too. And it's also just a chance to sample a lot of anime very quickly. So please come along if you're free and interested; you don't have to come to the whole thing if you'd rather dip in and out. Like a normal meeting, we show the episodes in a cycle of blocks of two with ten minute breaks in between them.

Best wishes,

Daniel

New shows; film afternoon; randomthon

Dear all,

Lots of news for you this week!

1. New shows

We'll be meeting as normal this Friday at 8 PM in the Saskatchewan Room at Exeter College. At the end of our last meeting we had watched up to the end of: Cowboy Bebop 13, The Great Passage 11 (end of show!), Princess Tutu 13, From the New World 12.

This Friday we'll have two new shows starting, to fill the slots vacated by The Great Passage and Time of Eve. One of those two shows will be Daily Lives of High School Boys, a raucous comedy. (We're still discussing the other slot, which is why I'm not saying what it is!)

2. Film afternoon, 2–6 PM, 10 February, Saskatchewan Room

This coming Saturday (10 February), we'll have a film screening like the one last term. After various people suggested that the middle of Hilary Term calls for something familiar and comforting, we agreed to show the Studio Ghibli classic Laputa, Castle in the Sky. As something to contrast with that (but keeping up a theme of 'things with "sky" in their titles'), we'll also show Gundam Thunderbolt: December Sky. So, on Saturday 10 February, in the Saskatchewan Room:

2.15 PM - Gundam Thunderbolt: December Sky - This is a beautifully animated and rather bleak futuristic war story about soldiers setting aside their humanity, set to an inventive soundtrack with a lot of jazz. Although it has 'Gundam' in its title, you don't need to have seen any other Gundam anime to understand its story, which is a stand-alone affair. For those members of OAV who saw Gundam Build Fighters when we showed it last year: think of this as the complete opposite in tone.

3.45 PM - Laputa, Castle in the Sky - This (for those of you who've not seen it) is a charming and uplifting adventure story set in a lightly fantastical world of airships and mysterious lost technology. So you can just come and see this if you want to be cheered up, or just come to see December Sky if you don't want to be cheered up, or come and see both films if you want to be hollowed out and then cheered up.

3. Randomthon, 2–6 PM, 17 February, Saskatchewan Room

On Saturday 17 February (Saturday at the end of 5th week) we'll have the annual OAV Randomthon between 2 and 6 PM in the Saskatchewan Room at Exeter College. For new members, the Randomthon is a screening at which we blast through a bunch of first episodes of anime which we're considering showing in full next year or in some future year. It's a chance for the committee to canvass members' opinions about the next year, and it's also just a chance to sample a lot of anime very quickly. So please come along if you're free and interested; you don't have to come to the whole thing if you'd rather dip in and out. If we're organised enough we'll circulate a schedule in advance.

Best wishes,

Daniel

Hello everyone! 

Hope everyone's had a good week and is looking forward to Friday's meeting (tomorrow)!

We'll be in the same place at the same time as usual: that's the Saskatchewan Room in Exeter College, starting 8pm. 

I look forward to seeing everyone there, and have a great weekend!
