E-mail sent by Alexei Stephenson, Wednesday, 16th April 2008 @ 7:18pm

Greetings, fellow vampire hunters and/or vampires.

I hope that you enjoyed your mandatory death-and-resurrection-celebration-related vacation, and are ready for a new term of anime goodness.

Vote Results

Greetings, assorted victims.

Thank you, all those who took part in the voting on our forum. The poll is now closed, and the results are as follows:

In Memoriam

E-mail sent by Alexei Stephenson, Sunday, 24th February 2008 @ 2:08pm

Attention, loyal worshippers of the God of Fanservice who has recently annexed Utena into his domain.

This coming Friday, we will be gathering in a memorial service to Vandread, recently departed high priest of Fanservice. At 5:30, we shall assemble at Edamame, the Japanese restaurant on Holywell Street, and commemorate the passing of Vandread with a solemn meal together. Anyone arriving after 5:45 may be unable to get a seat due to the sheer number of Vandread fans in attendance, so come early.

After thus mourning, we shall hold the wake at G&Ds, eating ice-cream as colourful as the hairstyles of the Vandread characters, and thence depart unto our usual meeting.

Lesser of Four Evils

E-mail sent by Alexei Stephenson, Wednesday, 20th February 2008 @ 12:48pm

Attention, loyal worshippers of YALORT.

You are in terrible danger. Depending on your actions, for the rest of the year you could be stuck with a series about:

  • An army sergeant with a furry fetish
  • Gory and violent battles between characters from games you probably haven't played
  • Cthulhu versus mecha, chosen by the owner of Vandread and described by some as "Vandread squared"
  • a distant future where all proper nouns (names etc.) are in an incomprehensible alien language whose spelling and pronunciation are unrelated

The deadline is midnight this Thursday. Before that time, go to the forum and place your vote to choose the lesser of these four evils to replace Vandread. There's no time to lose.

Triumph and Jubilation

Marathon: Advance Warning

E-mail sent by Alexei Stephenson, Saturday, 2nd February 2008 @ 11:39am

Attention, loyal fangirls. (male members may be considered honorary fangirls for the purpose of this e-mail)

This is an advance warning. The Utena marathon WILL overrun. This is in part because AnimeSoc always starts late due to certain people invariably not turning up on time, but in a large part because no two sources agree on the length of the Black Rose Saga we're meant to be showing. So it could be anywhere between 10 and 13 episodes.

Sudden Doom

E-mail sent by Alexei Stephenson, Saturday, 2nd February 2008 @ 1:04am

Greetings, fellow players of children's card games.

Our doom is nigh. Namely, it transpires that Magdalen College Auditorium is not hireable after all, and consequently our plans to host the second half of this term's meetings there have fallen through. The Magdalen student involved has very kindly offered us the use of her room (which apparently has lots of space and a large TV), but, for a number of reasons, it would be better to use a projector room if we can get hold of one.

Therefore, if any of you have access to a projector room you can book for 5th to 8th Week this term (and have confirmed that it is both bookable and free at all the right times), please let me know as soon as you can.

Japanese Society Message (forwarded)

Greetings, diligent devil hunters.

I have here a message from the president of the OU Japan Society, which I advise you all to study carefully.
