I hope you're all well. Oxford Anime Vision will be meeting as usual at 8 PM in the Saskatchewan Room at Exeter College on Friday this week. A few other notices follow.
As we're reaching the end of Michaelmas Term we'll be collecting membership fees in the next few meetings. The membership fee is £5 for the whole year, and the money goes towards the cost of hiring a stall, printing leaflets &c for next years Freshers' Fair. If you don't bring the fee this week, don't worry: we'll bring the membership book to several meetings in a row.
Next week, in week 7 (Friday 23 November), as we usually do, we'll have a social before the main meeting. This will be a meal at 6 or 6.30 PM, at a restaurant to be decided. If you'd like to be included in the numbers for this, please email email@example.com or sign up under the relevant message in the Facebook group—by 5 PM on Tuesday 20 November. (Please only sign up if you're genuinely planning to come: restauranteurs tend to be unimpressed if we make a big booking and then a third of us don't show up…) This will be a good chance for us to catch up with each other outside the context of G&D's!
Finally, some of you might've wondered how we're planning to fit Utena, a 39-episode show, into the structure of three 8-week terms. There are several recap episodes, and most of those can be cut without problems. And there's one arc in the middle of Utena which is interesting and enjoyable, but not essential to grasping the show, and we will show that arc in one or two separate marathon screenings during the spring—so if you like the show, you can come along and see all of it, and if you're not too bothered you can just catch our regular meetings.
OAV will be meeting as usual at 8 PM this Friday in the Saskatchewan Room at Exeter College.
You might remember from past emails that we're in the Saskatchewan Room in weeks 1–7 this term. I'm pleased to report that we've now booked a room for week 8, when we'll be at Christ Church. More details on that will follow later in the term.
