Posted by Andrew to the Anime blog
8:51PM Wednesday, 13 September 2017

It is already mid-September, and 2017 which seemed like as if it barely started is marching towards its end. Has 2017 been a good year for you all?

Now that’s enough of good quoting, let’s talk about trivia night. Alright! It’s time for the Semester 2 AMC Trivia night! This will be a once in a life time opportunity for you to test your knowledge of anime against others to defeat them and win prizes, or realise your weakness and go back to the mountain (your room) to train.

Meet new people or catch up with those that you already know to form a team in order to win this glorious battle! It is time to d, d, d, d, d, DUEL!

Time: 6pm to 9pm

Date: Friday September 22

Location: Union House Lounge

We will also be donburis and bento orders through: From Here Orders close at 11:59pm before the event, and members will get a $4 discount. Oh, and pocky and drinks are provided to all members who signs the green sheet. Will see you there.

Double Collaboration Events - Ramen eating and Movie Night

Posted by Andrew to the Club blog
9:37PM Wednesday, 6 September 2017
Tonight we're announcing twice as many events, which means twice as big an email!  Let's get started.
 
First up, our 7th Annual Ramen Eating Competition, as hosted by our sponsor Ramen Ya!  Join our team (we're limited to 8 people, so register at https://goo.gl/forms/FLFLMfbSRjKy7RWS2 if you're interested) or just come and spectate, eat as many bowls as you can in five minutes, and win for glory (and, more importantly, prizes)!  And this is a collaboration event - we will do battle with university anime clubs from across Melbourne, to see which is supreme!
 
Where: Ramen Ya, The Emporium
When: Tuesday September 26, 3 pm
 
And this event is free to attend.
 
But wait, there's more!  We're also teaming up with the Fantasy and Science Fiction Appreciation Society to screen Howl's Moving Castle - a notable work by Hayao Miyazaki about a fantastic fantasy world.
 
Where: Doug McDonnell 309
When: Tuesday September 12, 6:15 to 8:45 pm
 
And this event is something we don't normally do - those strange fantasy people have persuaded us to bring in... pizza!  Yes, in exchange for a mere $2 entry fee, you will not only be able to watch Howl's, but you will also receive access to pizza!
 
Hope to see you all at both of these events,

AMC Movie Night - Macross: Do You Remember Love? ( + New Screenings)

Posted by Limyaael to the Club blog
9:00PM Thursday, 31 August 2017

(aka. Macross: Ai Oboeteimasuka?,
Clash of the Bionoids,
Macross – The Movie,
The Super Dimension Fortress Macross Do You Remember Love)

Runtime: 115 minutes
When: Thursday, 9th September 2017
             6:40PM – 8:40PM
Where: Old Geology B-25 (Theatre 2)

What is the movie about?
Do You Remember Love follows the Macross, an alien ship crewed by humans after its discovery on Earth a decade ago. Stranded in space and fighting the enormous fleet of the humanoid giants, the Zentradi. Amongst the chaos of battle, how can humanity survive? Could it all rest on a single pop star's voice?

Essentially a retelling of the events of the original Macross series, DYRL is an absolute masterpiece and what truly propelled the Macross franchise from an interesting parody of the Gundam formula into a household name. The movie features, and truly solidifies, the three elements of Macross: transforming mecha, singing, and love triangles. If you've ever seen a Macross show and wondered how it all started, or are in any way interested in science fiction anime, you absolutely have to join us.

So come along, sign the green sheet, grab a free pocky and drink, and watch this classic.

The set start time for the movie is approximately 6:40PM, but we have the room booked from 6:15, so feel free to come along beforehand for a chat.

In addition to this exciting movie news, from next Monday (September 4th) we'll have some new screenings running.
The new screenings will be at the same time and location as the previous screenings, we'll just be showing different anime!

  • Monday: Flip Flappers will be succeeded by Joshiraku
  • Tuesday: Nanoha screening becomes Acchi Kocchi,
                 The Melancholoy of Haruhi Suzumiya will be replaced with The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Season 2
  • Wednesday: Dennou Coil becomes... Wait, Dennou Coil is longer than I thought. More Dennou Coil!
  • Thursday: Hibike! Euphonium will now be... You guessed it more Hibike! Euphonium (season 2, in fact!)
  • Friday: Akagami no Shirayukihime will become Akagami no Shirayukihime (More season 2's?), and finally
                 Katanagatari has pretty long episodes, so even if it's only 12, we'll be showing Katanagatari still...

More details are available on the screenings page.
