HT Week 3

E-mail sent by a GroupSpaces user, Tuesday, 31st January 2017 @ 6:44pm

Dear all, 

I hope the term is going well for everyone, nothing to report this week except that we are meeting this Friday at 8PM at Exeter as usual. We may be having a 'Randomthon' at some point in the next few weeks, which is an annual event where we watch a bunch of random episodes (1st episodes of different shows) in order to help work out which shows we will be watching next year, as well as a potential film night, so keep your ears peeled for those!

Best wishes,

Dear all,

I hope you're all having a great week! There are two points I wanted to remind everyone about this week. Firstly we are back in Exeter College for our regular meeting this week! This will be on Friday from 8PM to 11PM as usual. Secondly we are having a meal before the meeting this week, this will be at 6PM on Friday at Taberu, which is a Japanese restaurant on Cowley Road.

MT Week 6

E-mail sent by a GroupSpaces user, Wednesday, 16th November 2016 @ 9:58am

Dear all,

I hope you're all having a good week. I just wanted to remind everyone that we are having our regular meeting in the Queen's College, Lecture Room B this week. The meeting will still run from 8PM - 11PM on Friday, and we will have someone at the entrance to the college on the High Street to guide everyone in. May I also remind everyone that Queen's appreciate it if we take everyone into the college in large groups rather than one by one, so I would encourage you all to arrive slightly before 8 so that we can do so. Here is the location of the college on Google Maps:

Looking forward to seeing you all there,

MT Week 5

E-mail sent by a GroupSpaces user, Tuesday, 8th November 2016 @ 7:36pm

Dear all,

I hope you are all having a good week! I just wanted to remind everyone that we are having TWO normal meetings this week, one on Friday and one on Sunday, both in the Saskatchewan Room in Exeter College from 8PM to 11PM. This is to catch up on our regular series that we are showing as we missed our normal meeting in 3rd week due to the projector malfunctioning. 

Best wishes,
Felix

MT Week 4/5

E-mail sent by a GroupSpaces user, Saturday, 5th November 2016 @ 10:05am

Dear all,

Thanks everyone for being at the meeting last night! Thankfully the projector is working again now, so we don't have to become an ice cream club sandwich.

So to recap:

-This week we watched the third episodes of the series we are watching.

-Tom has booked the Saskatchewan Room for this Sunday and the next.

-This Sunday (the 6th), we will have a film night in the Saskatchewan Room, starting at 8PM. We will be watching Millennium Actress, which is an award-winning 2001 film from the visionary director Satoshi Kon, a reflective, part-comic exploration of the life of a fictional actress, and in some ways a love letter to cinema itself. We will also watch a few miscellaneous items before the film to make the evening more rounded.

-We will meet as normal next Friday to watch the fourth episodes of each series, and then on Sunday 13th we will have an extra session from 8PM to 11PM to watch the fifth episodes of each series and thus ketchup on our schedule.

For those who are interested, the random episode last night was the first episode of Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha.

Have a great weekend everybody!

Best wishes,

Felix

Week 4

E-mail sent by Member 205eff5, Thursday, 3rd November 2016 @ 8:59pm

Dear all,

We will be meeting as normal tomorrow at 8 PM in the Saskatchewan Room. All being well, we will watch the episodes we would have watched last week. We're hoping that the projector has been sorted out (if it hasn't, we'll just have to carry on being an ice cream club).

We've also booked the room for 8–11 PM next Sunday (6 Nov) and Sunday week (13 Nov), so we should have options for catching up:
 as soon as we have any certainty about the projector we will pick one of these for an extra meeting and let you know about it. Sorry if these times don't suit everyone: to an extent we have to take the times when we can get the room. Longer term we're also exploring some backup options beyond Exeter just in case.

Best wishes,

Daniel

Update

E-mail sent by Member 205eff5, Friday, 28th October 2016 @ 10:46pm

As those who came will know, we had to call the meeting tonight off because the projector at Exeter has a filter issue.

1. Sorry! Occasionally these things happen: projectors are fickle beasts.

2. Do not worry about keeping up: we will make sure that we show all of the episodes we would have watched this week the next time we meet, whether that's by using the sixth slots in our meetings, having an extra showing or coming up with some other wheeze. If anyone does miss a meeting that actually happens, you can always ask us to supply you with the material you missed.

3. We don't yet know whether the projector will be working again next Friday. The committee will try to put a backup plan in place in case it isn't, and we will keep you informed so you know where to go next week.

All best,
Daniel
OAV Secretary

Dear all,

Nothing special to report really this week, except that our meeting will be on Friday at 8PM in the Saskatchewan Room in Exeter College, just as last week. We will have someone outside the front of Exeter again up until 8PM to help guide people to the room in case you don’t know/are not sure where it is.

Looking forward to seeing many of you there on Friday, have a great week everyone!

MT Week 2

E-mail sent by a GroupSpaces user, Monday, 17th October 2016 @ 5:50pm


Dear all,

I’m very pleased to report that Exeter College have finally sorted out their room bookings for the term, and that every week this term apart from Week 6 (18 November), we’ll have our weekly meetings in the Saskatchewan Room at Exeter College at 8PM on Fridays. Exeter College is in the city centre on Turl Street which just off Broad Street and the High Street, here’s the location on Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/dDHkQqX3BbU2. The entrance to the college is the northernmost college door on the east side of Turl Street. We will put someone outside (likely myself) on the evening until 8PM as a sort of sentry to help people find their way in.

A note of courtesy: Exeter are very generous to be letting us use their facilities for free, but they don’t allow any food and drink other than bottled water in the Saskatchewan Room, so please ensure they remain friendly to us by not consuming such articles in the room.

As some of you may have seen already, we are planning a trip to the Vue cinema out near the Kassam Stadium on the evening of 24 November to see the one-off showing of the new Makoto Skinkai film ‘Your Name’. Anyone interested in this should comment on the relevant post on the Facebook group or email oxanimevision@gmail.com this week so we know how many tickets to buy.

I hope to see many of you at the meeting at Exeter this Friday, have a great week everyone!

Best wishes,

Felix

MT Week 1 (First Meeting of the Year!)

E-mail sent by a GroupSpaces user, Thursday, 13th October 2016 @ 10:23am

Dear all,

I’m happy to say that we’ve booked our room for the first official meeting of the year, we will be in Lecture Room B at The Queen’s College on the High Street at 8PM this Friday 14th October, that is, tomorrow. The entrance is next to a bus stop and the door is underneath a statue with a dome above it.

Here is the location of the entrance on Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/ES7gQt8QDu12

Something to note is that Queen’s likes us to take people inside in groups as opposed to trickling in one by one. With this in mind do please try to be prompt and aim to arrive for 7.45PM so that we can meet you at the entrance and take you in in as few groups as possible.

The running order for the night will be as follows: 8PM Samurai Champloo and Nodame Cantabile, 8.50PM Break, 9PM Mushishi and Gundam Build Fighters, 9.50PM Break, 10PM Erased and Random Episode.

Finally after we finish at about 11PM, we will be heading to the G&D’s on St Aldate’s for ice cream and to socialise after the anime, please join us if you can for this, discussions and debate often ensue and it is lots of fun.

Best wishes,

Felix

Just a reminder that we’re having an informal drinks event at The Mitre pub on the High Street tomorrow from 7.30pm onwards, everyone is welcome, both existing members and freshers. Look for the round table at the back on the ground floor with the ‘OAV’ sign on it.

New Year Update

E-mail sent by a GroupSpaces user, Monday, 3rd October 2016 @ 11:32am


Dear all,

I hope you’ve all had productive and/or enjoyable summers! My name is Felix and I am proud to be your new OAV Communications Officer for this year (or Comms for short). Freshers’ Fair is on this week at Examination Schools from Wednesday 5th to Friday 7th and we will have our stall in Room 9 at table no. 542; if you are coming to help run the stall for a session or two, your presence is greatly appreciated, if you want to come along just to say hi that’s also great.

Just like last year, we’re having a new year drinks event this Sunday 9th from 7.30pm at The Mitre pub on the High Street, we’ll be on the round table at the back with a sign saying ‘OAV’. Everyone feel free to come along, mainly this will be a way to get to know the freshers who want to join so they can ask us any questions about OAV, but also it’ll be a nice way to see people again after the long summer break.

We’re still in the process of booking rooms for our meetings this term, but provisionally the first meeting will be on Friday 14th October at 8pm. I’ll give you updates on this as they come. The shows we will be watching are Samurai Champloo, Gundam Build Fighters, Mushishi, Nodame Cantabile and Erased.

Finally if there is anyone who does not wish to receive these emails, do just drop me an email so that I can take you off our mailing list.

Best wishes,

Felix

Trinity Term End

E-mail sent by Daniel Sawyer, Saturday, 18th June 2016 @ 1:05am

Dear all,

It's difficult to understand how another year has passed so quickly, but here we are. Thank you everyone for coming and participating, whether you were at nearly all our meetings or just dipped in once or twice. I hope you all enjoyed the year. A particular thank you and good luck to those who're graduating this year!
I’m hoping that those of us who are left in Oxford over the summer will be organised enough to meet up a few times, even if only purely socially.

I will still be around next year but Felix Godfree will be taking over communications so this mailing list may hear from me less often in future. All being well, our first regular meeting next year will be on Friday 14 October, the Friday of week 1 next Michaelmas Term. I look forward to seeing many of you again then, and to greeting the next year’s new members. (In due course, volunteers to help staff our stall at Freshers’ Fair the week before (5–7 October) will be welcome.) I hope everyone has a great summer, whatever you will be doing!

Very best wishes,

Daniel
