Mid-Semester Marathon - 01/10/14
Trivia came and went and much glory and lulz were had, and now we're in week 9 on the cusp of a mid-semester (?) break. Time flies...
As per tradition, we will be having a marathon screening - in name only; as always, it'll be 1-2 episodes of several shows -during the break. The theme for this occasion will be Committee's Picks. Come along and silently (or even loudly!) judge us on what will no doubt be an exceptionally diverse selection of anime. We'll start it at 9:00 AM, but don't fret - you're free to drop in whenever you feel like it. Only we, the committee, have to suffer the torture of waking up early during the break.
Date: Wednesday, 1st October
Time: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Location: Babel Middle Theatrette
Hope to see you there, and please don't judge our selection too harshly.

.....we've been doing a lot of these as of late - I'll keep this brief.
Our main announcement for this occasion is that we have a deal with Animaga, a new convention launching in a couple of weeks! They've contacted the club recently saying they're willing to give us 10% off tickets to the convention. If this sounds like the sort of deal you'd be interested in, please fill in this form before this Sunday at 11:59 PM. The committee will get in touch with you when you can collect and pay for your tickets.
Oh, and if we have 10+ people interested in the same sort of ticket (day or weekend) that'll be another 10% off the tickets - just another thing to think about while you're considering your purchase.
And here's another reminder that Trivia Night will be happening Friday week 8 (19/9); here's the donburi (RIP bento) order form and as always we'll be taking orders until 11:59 PM Thursday. After that point if you really, really want a donburi for the night - either come early to the lounge or get in touch with a committee member and we'll take care of it.
And that should be all....for now.

Week 8 Trivia Night - 19/09
Have you ever wanted to show off your knowledge of obscure anime shows? Wanted to defeat all others with your knowledge of Dog and Scissors? Or... do you just want to watch others show off and/or flail, learn some entertaining facts about shows you had always wanted to see, meet some interesting new people who like anime, and have a general fun night led by the committee and their awesome MCing skills?
If the answer to at least one of those things is yes, you'll probably want to come to Trivia Night.
Date: Friday September 19
Time: 5:30pm to 9pm (team-sorting from 5:30; trivia itself starts around 6)
Location: Members Lounge, Union House Ground Floor
We'll mix up the teams to maintain some kind of balance (read: we're not putting all the super-geniuses on one team, no matter how funny it'd make things for the committee), and everyone should have at least a slight chance of being carried to victory. Not that it ever happened to me before... *sobs*.
ANYWAY, you can also place donburi orders (things have changed kids) here, and they close at 11:59pm on Thursday September 18. Or you can place a last-minute order on the night (get to Members Lounge between 5 and 5:30pm, and we'll help you out). Oh, and members get a $5 discount, so invite your friends to join up as well.

Announcements for Everybody!
It's almost Week 6: Mid-semester tests are being studied for, assignments are discovered to be due in two weeks, and everyone glances away from their anime backlogs long enough to complain about their workloads. And we've got a lot of things to talk about in this email; click on the links in each dot point for details.
1) With Ping Pong and Another wrapping up, it is time to replace them with new screenings. Starting Week 7, we'll be screening Kids on the Slope on Mondays and Knights of Sidonia on Fridays. Both great shows; check the screenings page for details.
2) We're doing a movie night next Friday. It starts at 6:30pm in the Latham Theatre in Redmond Barry, and we'll be screening 2 short movies: 5 Centimetres Per Second and The Cat Returns. Check the other blog post for details.
3) We've partnered with Animaga, a new anime convention happening this September (27th-28th) to get you 10% off tickets. Come to one of our screenings or other events to buy tickets. If you want to know what Animaga's all about, check out their website.
4) UMSU International's Festival of Nations is happening soon. They're looking for cosplayers to take part (email Wei Jin Lim at [email protected]), and are also running a comic strip-making competition (check this Facebook post or email Kenny J. Chen at [email protected]) to promote it.
That's enough exciting news - now back to work,
