AnimeSoc First Meeting of Term!

E-mail sent by Christopher Newell, Wednesday, 25th April 2012 @ 3:47pm

Hey everyone!

I hope that you've all had a great Easter break, and are now getting settled back into life in Oxford.  Our first meeting is this Friday at 8pm at Exeter College, in the Saskatchewan Room. 

Note that we only have this room on the condition that no food or drink is to be consumed while we're there, so please refrain from bringing any. 

As always, we'll be heading to G&Ds afterwards, and anyone who wants to is welcome to come along.

Looking forward to seeing you all again,

Chris

Presidential Update

E-mail sent by Alexei Stephenson, Sunday, 1st April 2012 @ 12:26am

Greetings, loyal members of the OAV.

It is I, Alexei Stephenson, President of years past, long thought banished beyond the limits of dark space after an epic war that shook the galaxy. However, today I return with a special surprise announcement. Selina and I have chosen to keep this secret up until now, but after extensive discussion, we decided it would be fair to let you all know with enough advance warning to get used to the coming changes.

Namely, due to our respective changing circumstances, Selina will unfortunately be unable to continue as OAV President from Trinity this year. On the other hand, I am going to return, and reclaim the post that once was mine. That's right, starting from Trinity, I will be President once again.

And I have some new ideas. You see, I've had ample time since we made this decision to consider ways in which the OAV can be improved. Accordingly, Trinity will see changes including, but not limited, to the following:

- We will be running joint events with the Assassins' Guild. Cosplay will be mandatory, as will the use of special attack names in battle (where costumes permit).
- In light of the soon-to-be-introduced age restrictions for OAV membership, there will now be a hentai slot. Suggestions for the slot first series/OVAs are welcome.
- In the event of projector malfunction, we will attempt religious ceremonies from a variety of faiths, as a group, to attempt to restore it to working order. Members will be able to opt out, except where doing so would reduce the congregation below the required minimum. The current list of faiths to try includes Orthodox and Reformed Judaism, five denominations of Christianity, Tibetan Buddhism, Voodoo, Theosophy, Celtic Druidry, the Elysian Mysteries and the Cult of Veil.
- All female Committee members will be required to wear miniskirts (as a form of Japanese cultural expression).
- In order to redress the unfortunate gender imbalance within the Committee, we will be inviting more female members to join.
- A special, mandatory costume shall be selected for the OAV Mascot based on a vote.

AnimeSoc Randomthon and Geek Quiz

E-mail sent by Christopher Newell, Thursday, 9th February 2012 @ 11:09pm

Hey Everyone!

So, Friday marks the halfway point of this academic year, and I hope you've all been having a great time so far.  The meeting is as usual at 8pm in Lecture Room 1 in Christ Church College.

Thursday 16th February (that's next week) is the termly Geek Quiz at St. John's College, starting at 8pm.  This is courtesy of the Oxford Doctor Who Society, and promises to be a great night.  If it's anything like the times I've been, you're in for a treat.

Saturday 3rd March (7th Week) is our Randomthon.  You know the random slot we have at the end of the session?  It's basically like that, FOREVER!  Well, from 2-6pm at Exeter College anyway.  It's basically for us to get an idea what we might want to watch next year, so I'd really recommend coming along.  If you have any sugestions for episodes to watch then, feel free to chat to the committee about it.

That's all for now, I'll see you all tomorrow.

Bye for now,

Chris

AnimeSoc Meeting

E-mail sent by Christopher Newell, Thursday, 2nd February 2012 @ 5:39pm

Hey everyone!

I hope you've all had a great week, and for those of you who came on the shopping trip last weekend, I hope you all had as great a time as I did.

Just a quick reminder to say that the meeting is in its usual time and place.  Lecture Room 1, Christ Church College, Tomorrow at 8pm.  I hope you can all make it!

See you there,

Chris

AnimeSoc first week meeting and shopping trip!

E-mail sent by Christopher Newell, Thursday, 19th January 2012 @ 11:48pm

Hey everyone, welcome back!

Sorry about the short notice, but just so you all know, AnimeSoc is back on this term, same time same place.  That is Fridays at 8pm, in Lecture Room 1, Christ Church College.  Our first meeting is this Friday, 20th January.  I hope you can all make it!

We also have a shopping trip planned for Saturday 28th January, so if you could put that date into your diaries and let us know if you're interested in coming.  More about it at the meeting, but I can tell you from personal experience that it's a great day out, and well worth considering.

Again, apologies for the short notice, and see you all tomorrow!

Chris

Last call for fees - Room for next term

E-mail sent by Christopher Newell, Tuesday, 29th November 2011 @ 9:37am

Hey everyone!

I hope you've all enjoyed AnimeSoc this term.  This Friday is the last meeting of term.  If any of you haven't paid your membership fees for this year yet, Friday is the due date, so please bring in £7 if you haven't already.

The only other thing that needs flagging up is the issue of a meeting room for next term.  If you could all check with your colleges to see if they have a suitable room, that would be great.  It would need to be able to seat all of us, have a projector and speakers, and ideally be free.  Exeter, Christchurch, Oriel and Balliol should all have rooms that can be used for free by college members, so if any of you are from from those colleges, you should see if you can get one of those.

If you find anything regarding rooms, please either tell us at the meeting, or email me.

I hope you all have a great 8th Week.  We're almost there!

Chris

Social date Confirmed

E-mail sent by Christopher Newell, Friday, 18th November 2011 @ 1:14pm

Hey everyone!

Okay, the votes are in, and it's been decided that the social will be on Friday of 7th week.  That's the 25th November to those of us more in tune with the dates of the outside world.  It's being held at 6pm at Noodle Nation on Gloucester Green.  Please do try to be on time, as we'll be having the meeting not long afterwards.

This week's meeting is as usual.  Today at 8pm, in Lecture Room 1 at Christ Church College.  As always, we're looking forward to seeing you there.

Bye for now,

Chris

Social and Film Night

E-mail sent by Christopher Newell, Friday, 11th November 2011 @ 2:01am

Hey everyone,

We're planning to have an AnimeSoc social at some point within the next two weeks.  We've set up an online poll to see when people are free, so if you could take the time to fill in the times when you're free, that would really help.  Once we've decided on a date and time, we'll let you know the details.

Here's a link to the poll: http://doodle.com/n8i3txtfegiw35vw

We're also planning a film night, so if anyone has any suggestions, let us know at the meeting and we'll see what people want to watch.

As usual, the meeting is on Friday, at 8pm in Lecture Room 1 at Christ Church College.

Looking forward to seeing you all there,

Chris

Fourth and future meetings

E-mail sent by Christopher Newell, Thursday, 3rd November 2011 @ 10:37pm

Hey everyone,

Just a quick reminder, we'll be meeting on Friday, same time and place as last time.  That is, 8pm in Lecture Room 1 at Christ Church College.  This will be where we plan to meet for the rest of the term, so unless you get an email saying otherwise, that's where we'll be each week.

I won't be sending out these reminders weekly any more, but watch this space for any further news about socials and whatever other fun stuff we may have planned.

Also, just as a quick reminder to those who haven't payed their fees yet, it's £7 for the whole year, to be payed by the end of term.

Hoping to see you all there,

Chris

IMPORTANT - Room change for third week meeting

E-mail sent by Christopher Newell, Thursday, 27th October 2011 @ 11:30am

Hello Everyone!

Well, it's coming up to the end of third week, and you all know what that means.  It's AnimeSoc's third meeting of the year.  I hear this week's episode of Madoka is not to be missed, so make sure you come along.

Things will be a little different this week, as we've had to change rooms.  We're still starting at 8pm on Friday, but this time the venue will be Lecture Room 1 at Christ Church College.  This is where the meetings will be held for the rest of this term, so make a note of that if you haven't already.  If you come along a little early, there should be someone around to show you to the room.

Also note that we'll be collecting fees over the next couple of weeks.  It costs £7 for the whole year, so if anyone planning to stick with us for the long haul could bring that in, that would be great.

As per usual, we'll be heading off to G&D's afterwards, which we're now just over the road from thanks to the room change.

That'll be all for now.  We're looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

Chris

Second Meeting

E-mail sent by Christopher Newell, Thursday, 20th October 2011 @ 12:15pm

We're looking forward to seeing you all again, and we hope you have a great time.

See you tomorrow,

Chris

First Meeting

E-mail sent by Christopher Newell, Thursday, 13th October 2011 @ 8:33am

Oxford Anime Vision - First Meeting

E-mail sent by Christopher Newell, Saturday, 8th October 2011 @ 5:15pm

If this is the second time you've heard from us today, feel free to delete this message, as it's the same as before.  Some of the emails we sent bounced, so we've had to send this out again. Sorry about the spam.

Hey all!

It’s that time of the year again, and Oxford Anime Vision is preparing to get going for another year.  To those of you who have just signed up, thank you for joining, and welcome on behalf of the committee.  We’re looking forward to seeing you there.

So, here’s the rundown of what we’ll be doing.  We get together on Friday evenings to watch anime, starting at 8 o’clock, finishing at 11.  We then head down to G&D's for discussion and ice cream.

Each meeting will have six slots for anime episodes.  Five of these slots will be for the series we’re running, which we aim to go through over the course of the year.  The sixth slot is there for random episodes to get an idea for what we want to see next year.  Or if we just want a good laugh.

We’ll be running the following series this year.  Follow the links to find out more about the shows.

Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magika
http://myanimelist.net/anime.php?id=9756


Please note that Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magika, being quite a short series, will be finishing about halfway through Hilary term, at which point its slot will be filled by Mononoke.

Our first meeting of the year will be Friday of First Week, 14th October at 8:00pm.  It’s being held at Exeter College, in the Saskatchewan Room.  No, I don’t know how that’s pronounced either.  At any rate, we’ll be waiting outside the college to give people a hand in finding the room.

Starting in Third Week, we’ll be moving our regular meeting place to Christ Church College.  Don’t worry about that for now; we’ll let you know what’s going on closer to the time.

For those of you on Facebook and/or My Anime List, OAV has groups set up on those websites, so feel free to get in touch that way.

Fresher's Fair volunteers

E-mail sent by Michael Pearson, Saturday, 1st October 2011 @ 1:39pm

Hey,

Fresher's Fair runs from Wednesday until Friday and we need volunteers to help run the stall. 
If you're interested contact me and included the days and time (those of you who have already volunteered could you also tell me when you'd be able to help). The actual work is fairly simple and simply involves answering questions that people have; handing out flyers to those that are interested and just generally convincing people to sign up.

I'll email round a timetable on Monday evening to all those that volunteer.

Thanks and I hope to see many of you in a few weeks,
Mike

Urgent help needed

E-mail sent by Michael Pearson, Tuesday, 6th September 2011 @ 4:37pm

Hello everyone, it's still the holidays but there's only a few weeks remaining.
Unfortunately the committee has so far been unable to secure an appropriate room for animesoc meetings next year. We desperately need to find a room so we're asking our members again.

Could you all please contact your college to find out if they have an available lecture theatre and the restrictions in place on their use? Your college lodge should be able to provide the information (and is usually also contactable via email) about the size of rooms and where to enquire for further information on student bookings. If your college can provide a lecture theatre can you email the details to both myself (michael.pearson@stcatz.ox.ac.uk) and Selina (selina.groh@merton.ox.ac.uk).

Fresher's Fair is also approaching, as such we will need some volunteers to help run the stall. Fresher's Fair runs from Wednesday - Friday of 0th Week (5th-7th of October). The finer details of days and times can be organised later but I would be greatful if those interested could contact me.


I hope to see you all in a month with OAV running as usual,
Mike
