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!

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

Hello again!

It was great to see you all at AnimeSoc last week, and we hope you're enjoying the series we're running.  We're coming up to our second meeting of the year, same time and place as last time.  That is, Friday 21st October, 8pm in the Saskatchewan Room in Exeter college.  As always, we'll be heading off to G&D's afterwards, so don't miss out on that.

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

Hello Everyone!

It's Thursday, and that means that we're coming up to Oxford Anime Vision's first meeting of the year.  Just as a quick reminder, it's this Friday at 8pm in Exeter college.  There will be people at the doors to show you to the right room.

I hope you've all had a great first week so far, and we're looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

See you soon,

Chris

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

1st Week Meeting, Mailing List and Committee Members.

E-mail sent by Michael Pearson, Wednesday, 4th May 2011 @ 10:21pm

Hello all,

We're having the usual weekly animesoc meeting Friday 8pm, Exeter College.
Now we several things to bring up this week.

First, this mailing list is going to be purged of all people who we don't have regisitered as current members (or managers). Some of the entries on this list are years old and include Fresher's Fair sign ups of people who have never attended. If you would like to continue receiving news from OAV but aren't confident we have you down as a current member please sign up to the mailing list again tomorrow (Thursday) here : http://groupspaces.com/oav .

Secondly, the OAV committee is looking for a new member to join us. If you might be interested in getting involved please come and talk to the committee members on Friday during the break. We'll be sat at the front of the lecture theatre as usual.

Finally, we're looking for a lecture theatre for next year. Adam has been very helpful this year in booking out the Exeter College room, but unfortunately he finishes his degree this year. This may turn out to be related to the previous point, please get in touch with your college if you think there might be a suitable lecture theatre we could use and find out the restrictions on booking it. I am aware of both Oriel and Worcester Colleges' lecture theatre's being used previously for meetings.


Thank you and see some of you Friday,
Mike

Next Year's Line-Up

E-mail sent by Alexei Stephenson, Friday, 1st April 2011 @ 3:15pm

Greetings, bright-eyed students of Ishiyama High School.

Some of you may remember me as last year's president; for others, therapy will have proven effective. Today, I am delighted to announce that, after being defeated in an epic school rooftop duel involving storms of cherry petals, wholesale destruction of large areas of scenery and the hospitalisation of several dozen onlookers and opportunistic backstabbers (or possibly an overly high-stakes poker game, whichever takes your fancy), Selina has conceded to me the right to choose next year's anime line-up.

I therefore present you with the following:

Action: Bleach

Witness staggering displays of swordsmanship and supernatural power as ordinary high schooler Ichigo finds himself drawn into a never-ending war between the Shinigami, spiritual guardians of the passage between life and death, and the monstrous Hollows that seek to devour the souls of the recently deceased. With conflict and treachery at every turn, Ichigo and his small band of friends may hold the key to saving the world from conquest and destruction at the hands of dark powers that have spent centuries preparing for battle.

Romance: Bleach

Even as teenage troublemaker Ichigo struggles with the duties and responsibilities of an unexpected ascension to a brotherhood of protectors of the afterlife, he is forced with a stark and impossible choice: the distant, noble Rukia, whose frail form conceals the burning soul of a warrior, or the loving, vulnerable, eccentric childhood friend Orihime. Will Ichigo manage to negotiate a happy ending in the face of rivals for the girls' affections (including fierce swordsman Renji, lecherous combat spirit Kon and merciless overprotective brother Byakuya), or will love ultimately prove to be the straw that breaks the camel's back for the young yet heavily burdened hero?

Horror: Bleach

Every night, sinister monsters stalk the streets of Karakura Town, while in the shadows, a malevolent scientist from another world plots the creation of new forbidden horrors by blurring the line between life and death. Ordinary people are unable to even see the Hollows that hunger for their souls, never mind defend themselves. But high schooler Kurosaki Ichigo can, and together with a small band of friends, it is up to him to put an end to the never-ending invasion from the Land of the Dead... before the balance of souls that keeps the cycle of reincarnation going is destroyed forever.

Comedy: Bleach

In a land where hair is always naturally black or brown, and where only delinquents use hair dye in high school, naturally ginger Kurosaki Ichigo has always been an unwilling trouble magnet. But he had no idea how much more complicated his life was going to become when a rookie death goddess turned up in his house, accidentally gave him all her powers, and then announced that she was moving in with him until she got them back. You'd think that running out mid-class in order to protect the town from monsters every day would be troublesome enough, but add an ineptly violent father with no sense of privacy, an airheaded love interest whose cooking resembles no recipe book on Earth, a sentient stuffed toy lion with a breast obsession and a would-be caped crusader who thinks all death gods should be eliminated, and you'll be forgiven for thinking that having to battle supernatural horrors is going to be the last of Ichigo's problems!

Slice-of-Life: Bleach

Join reluctant delinquent Ichigo, half-Japanese half-Mexican guitarist Chad, socially inept genius Ishida and ditzy eccentric Orihime as they face countless dilemmas of teenage life, from keeping dangerous secrets to falling in love and struggling to balance academic and extracurricular commitments. Together with a wide cast of colourful secondary characters (from predatory lesbian stalkers to ancient generals and sweet shop owners who have more to them than meets the eye), the Bleach cast remind us that, no matter how unique our circumstances, we all ultimately have to face the same challenges in order to grow up.

Since Bleach is an ongoing series with 315 episodes currently released, some of the random slots may also have to be used for doubling, and marathons are under consideration for certain filler arcs.
