6th Week Anime Soc meeting, and email changes

E-mail sent by Michael Pearson, Thursday, 18th November 2010 @ 11:40am

Hi,

The weekly meeting will be tomorrow, Exeter College 8pm etc. Same as usual.
For anyone who missed last weeks session, we doubled Hellsing.
Due to the number of meetings over the year sometimes we have to show 2 episodes of something, rather than the usual random.


See you tomorrow,

Mike

P.S.
We've lost the use of the animesoc-announce@lists.ox.compsoc.net. Due to this all emails will now be sent through the Groupspaces mailing list. The list should have been brought over in its entirety, but if you do know anyone else that attends please check to make sure they're still receiving emails. Thanks.

5th Week Meeting and Geek Quiz

E-mail sent by Michael Pearson, Thursday, 11th November 2010 @ 4:57pm

Hello,

This week's meeting will be on Saturday, 8pm at Exeter College in the same lecture theatre as usual.

The Geek Quiz is tonight, I hope some of you will attend. I believe they request that you some of you bring a round of questions with you, but nothing too specific to your area of geekiness.
The full details of where it is can be found below.

See you all Saturday,

Mike

-The Halloween-Thon, As It Stands...

E-mail sent by Jonathan Barrett, Saturday, 30th October 2010 @ 4:29pm



Well chaps and ladies, here's the deal concerning the Halloween-Thon. It seems we're unable to get any actual proper projector rooms on a Sunday, so it looks like we're going to have to settle for my flat with its 42" Plasma Screen.

The Date! Sunday the 31st of October...

The Time! From 1:30pm. We may play a couple video games while we wait for more people to turn up, but no earlier than 1:30pm... It will probably be Halloween Night by the time we're finished. Since it is my flat, we do not have an end time we need to stick to or anything...

The Place. My Flat.
Flat 2 Folly Bridge Court.

If you go to G&Ds with the group afterwards, the G&Ds we most commonly go to is on St Aldates. From the City Centre, go further down St Aldates, and my Flat will be on the Right, just before you cross a Bridge, over the Thames I believe. This is Folly Bridge.
It is Right Opposite the Road from the Head of the River Pub.
There's an Entrance into the Outdoor carpark for the Flats, Right Opposite the pub, behind a phonebox. If you enter here, then Flat 2 is in the Block farthest  from that entrance. 
If you enter into the Court from a little road called Shirelake Close, then when you go round the corner to where you can actually enter the flats, it is the first. The blocks are numbered, so just look for the one that has Flats 1-11....

In case you get lost in the Car Park or something, here's my home number...
01865 723416

And oh, one more thing. If you have some  Spooky, creepy, out-right frightening, or just somewhat halloween themed anime, bring it along. One thing though. Make sure what you bring contains no spoilers...

And oh, if you have any Pumpkins carved, take a photo and bring along a copy to show....

Hope to see some of you there... though hopefully not too many, since my flat isn't That big...

Now I need to tidy this place somewhat... Later!

-Jonathan Barrett, 
     Lord of the Black Scarf...

3rd Week, Horrorthon and Online things.

E-mail sent by Michael Pearson, Tuesday, 26th October 2010 @ 9:22am

Hello,

The weekly animesoc meeting will be returning to its normal position of Friday night at 8pm this week and in Exeter college as usual.

As we're getting close to Halloween we're looking to hold a Horrorthon, a special animesoc meeting for all the creepy and horrifying anime we can show.
Details should follow in another email later this week.

Final thing to mention for those of you who aren't aware, fresher or returning member.

OAV has a presence on Facebook here : http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=323212710135

There are also several society members on MAL, you can find me here http://myanimelist.net/profile/MikeP send me a message/friend request if you want.

See you all Friday,

Mike

2nd Week Meeting

E-mail sent by Michael Pearson, Friday, 22nd October 2010 @ 1:44pm

Hello,

Sorry for the late email. For those of you who missed the session last week, this weeks meeting has been delayed until tomorrow (Saturday), 8pm at Exeter College again.

Hopefully we'll see most of you tomorrow.

Have a nice Friday,

Mike

The OAV Needs You

E-mail sent by Alexei Stephenson, Thursday, 14th October 2010 @ 2:33pm

Greetings, loyal Arrancar warriors.

Welcome back, and rest assured that we are definitely not planning to sacrifice all of your lives in a completely pointless fashion over the course of the year.

As some of you may know, an epic battle with intruders into our realm is scheduled for the coming weekend, as a result of which our usual room will be undergoing repairs and not be useable for the 2nd Week meeting. As such, we have two options: either move the meeting to Saturday, or turn to you.

Lord Aizen needs a large, projector-equipped conference room in which to unleash his Shikai before the eyes of our unsuspecting members-to-be. If you belong to a college which has one (a room, not an Aizen, Shikai or member-to-be, though those would be bonuses), and are prepared to book it for 8-11pm on Friday of 2nd Week, please contact one of the members of the OAV Espada (using the e-mails listed on the front page) at the nearest opportunity.

Regular meeting

  • Friday, 21st January 2011 at 8pm, Friday, 28th January 2011 at 8pm, Friday, 4th February 2011 at 8pm, Friday, 11th February 2011 at 8pm, Friday, 18th February 2011 at 8pm, Friday, 25th February 2011 at 8pm, Friday, 4th March 2011 at 8pm, Friday, 11th March 2011 at 8pm
    Location: Saskatchewan Lecture Theatre, Exeter College, Oxford

Social Reminder

E-mail sent by Alexei Stephenson, Tuesday, 1st June 2010 @ 8:40pm

Greetings, students and faculty of Constant Magic Academy.

It is with the greatest pleasure that I remind you that our celebration of the Demon King's return this term falls upon Friday of 6th Week, i.e. this Friday, and not the usual date.

Confirmations of attendance would be most helpful, as would an early arrival, since mana destabilisation may result in seats disappearing, or turning into magical beasts, if you are late. Please come to Edamame by 5:30 pm.

-Provisional Night Of Horror... And Games...

E-mail sent by Jonathan Barrett, Friday, 28th May 2010 @ 3:05am

Greetings, and welcome to this email.

Within I shall tell you about a hastily thought up plan to play games as a group round my flat on Saturday.

That's right, Jonathan here, Lord of the Black Scarf, Bringer of the Laptop Of Anime Soc, announcing a Gaming Night this Saturday (29th).

Final details to be decided tomorrow at the session, but it is currently my intention we could show the first Evangelion Rebuild Movie 1.11, off the nice shiney Blu Ray. If we do that, I'll begin the movie at 4:00pm, and the gaming will begin in full at about 6:00pm. 
If we miss out Eva, I think we'll go with a 5:00pm start, so I'll ask for people's opinion at the session tonight..
I have a sizeable collection of games, but it tends to boil down to playing "I MAED A GAM3 WITH ZOMBIES IN IT!!!!!!1" a couple times, then playing Smash Bros Brawl until everyone is tired.
But there is another plan also, if people are up to it, another kind of game entirely. A Board Game.
I have a good collection of Board games too, including the Cultist Filled, Lovecraft inspired, Arkham Horror.


It's a complex game, but I'm sure we're all mature adults, or almost adults. It is also rather long, with games taking about 4 hours, so if we do go with it, we'll start the game at 7:00pm(6:00pm if enough people are on time possibly), and anyone who is late, will probably shoot zombies or punch Pikachu. Only if we decide to play that, or another board game though.

So anyway, There will be some gaming at my flat sometime Saturday Night. My Flat is Flat 2 Folly Bridge Court, Shirelake Close (not the houses, the flats). Folly Bridge is down St Aldates (the road with G&Ds on it, at least the one we most commonly use). If you want my land Line telephone number in case you get lost, then email me ( shadow_mask_sm@hotmail.com ) or ask me at the session tomorrow.

I'll send out another email after the session tomorrow confirming what is decided ( To Eva, or Not to Eva, To Arkham, or Not To Arkham? and thus the times)

Till them, watch out for Cultists popping randomly out of bushes and portals.

Mind you, if you find a portal to some strange and horrible other world and the worst that comes through it is a cultist, you're pretty damn lucky.

See you folks tonight!

-Jonathan Barrett

The Final Battle, Yet Again

E-mail sent by Alexei Stephenson, Monday, 24th May 2010 @ 7:01pm

Greetings, Black Knight candidates.

Thank you for offering to participate in the reclamation of Area 11. Happily, we have an opportunity for you to prove your valour ready and waiting. I quote the letter of challenge sent by Britannian spy Emma Lewis:

"Greetings all!

Fifth Week brings with it that termly fixture - Oxford's
Inter-Geek-Society Quiz. The FanFic society have written poetry about
it, there's a FaceBook group for people who think it's the social
highlight of their term - and now it's your chance to show that your
geekdom is better than everybody else's geekdom.

We meet on Thursday 27 May, at 8pm, in St John's North Quad Lecture
Room. Please publicise this event to your society - and maybe think
about organising a team?

Individuals are encouraged to bring their own rounds of around ten
questions - we particularly encourage rounds with themes and gimmicks
but you shouldn't focus *too* heavily on esoteric aspects of your own
geekdom - we want it to be comprehensible to the rest of us! However,
you don't have to bring a round, or even think of yourself as a geek,
to have a good time at one of these events.

Hoping to see you all there,

Emma"

Lend Us Your Strength!

E-mail sent by Alexei Stephenson, Sunday, 23rd May 2010 @ 10:17am

Dear Section 9 informants,

Your information delivery skills are needed once again, this time as part of two investigations connected with the Nissan Institute of Oxford, UK.

Firstly, Yu Nagai of the MSc in Modern Japanese Studies is conducting research on reasons behind British people's interest in Japan. Those of you who have spent most of your lives in Britain, and have had an interest in Japan for at least one year since 2000, are strongly encouraged to co-operate with the investigation by contacting him at yu.nagai@pmb.ox.ac.uk and arranging a 30-60 minute interview (which can take place before or after exams). Yu is a very friendly and generally cool person, and the information you provide him with could be valuable for building stronger diplomatic ties, thus allowing easier Section 9 work abroad in the future.

Secondly, those of you who are studying Japanese at the moment, and kanji specifically, can further the cause of accelerative learning by describing your study techniques to Yuko Hashimoto of yukohashimoto@yahoo.co.uk, who is based at the Institute of Education in London but can travel to Oxford for interviews. Yuko, also, is a very comfortable person to be interviewed by, and anything you tell her can greatly aid in the development of cyberbrain enhancement software (to say nothing of long-term improvements in kanji teaching techniques which will benefit fellow informants worldwide).

Lest Ye Forget

E-mail sent by Alexei Stephenson, Friday, 14th May 2010 @ 11:59am

Greetings, dearest patrons.

I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that, this Friday only, our services may be enjoyed at the Saskatchewan Lecture Theatre of Exeter College.

In addition, Akemi Solloway, a dedicated promoter of Japanese culture, wishes us to pass on the details of another event, naturally less fabulous but perhaps larger in scale. The 2010 Japanese Art Festival will be taking place in Richmond, London, on the 21st and 22nd of August. If it is anything like its predecessors, it will be well worth visiting, with delicious food, live performances of various elements of Japanese culture (such as music and martial arts), as well as shopping opportunities and many fan-made materials up for sale. The website is http://www.japaneseartfestival.com/, though you may wish to wait until they've updated it for this year.

A Location As Yet Untouched By True Beauty

E-mail sent by Alexei Stephenson, Tuesday, 11th May 2010 @ 7:24pm

Greetings, dearest patrons.

I am delighted to announce that the OAV Host Club remains ready to fulfil your desires, with one insignificant alteration that may be worthy of mention. Due to our usual location being currently cursed by Beelzenef (who feels that insufficient respect was paid him at the new Committee announcement), we will be spending Friday 14th of May at the Saskatchewan Lecture Theatre of Exeter College. The time and schedule remain unchanged, as does our commitment to the finest service delivered in the most elegant fashion. Directions follow below:

"Enter the college, walk around the front quad to the top left corner & turn left into the back quad. Go down the flight of stairs on the right hand side (behind the bike rack). Once inside, the Saskatchewan Room is straight ahead."

Coronation

E-mail sent by Alexei Stephenson, Thursday, 22nd April 2010 @ 11:59am

Greetings, loyal subjects.

I am writing to affirm two key points. First, royalist meetings will be held at our usual location at the Harris Lecture Theatre at 8-11pm on Fridays starting 1st Week.

Second, all are invited to attend the coronation of His Majesty Akira I, King of Eden, at 3-6pm at the HLT on Saturday 1st of May (Saturday of 1st Week). The momentous event will be preceded by a historical film narrating the history of His Majesty's ascension (continuing from the well-known narrative of Eden of the East).

Please note that any assassination attempts must be conducted strictly according to Guild protocol and violators will be violated.

Encouraging Haste

E-mail sent by Alexei Stephenson, Friday, 5th March 2010 @ 12:54pm

To all those attending the Termly Social tonight (5:30pm, Edamame):

Please be extremely (super ultra) punctual, as the Edamame staff are not happy with having to seat extra people at existing tables, and if you're late you may have to wait for other latecomers to form a separate group before you can enter the restaurant.

See you there!

Alexei
