End of Semester Dinner!

Posted by Giffo to the Club blog
8:47PM Sunday, 21 May 2017

Greetings,

You're probably aware that it's Week 12...

...are you back from a solid five minutes of screaming about the fact that it's Week 12? Good.

Now, the end of semester is coming, and that means many things - terror, pain, and temporary freedom from uni - but we're most interested in meeting up with our members one last time, for one last dinner, before charging off into battle. Or, you know, curling up with your laptop and a lot of anime until your exam comes along. Either or.

What: End of Semester Dinner
Where: Ramen Ya, Lower Ground Floor of the Emporium.
When: Friday May 26, 6:00 pm
But actually, what: You come and have dinner with us, at the actual physical location of our sponsor Ramen Ya (you know, where our non-pocky food comes from).

And if you were planning on studying on the last night of semester... you know you're not gonna. Come join us.

Movie Night 11/05/2017 - Harmony/ie

Posted by Giffo to the Club blog
10:17PM Friday, 5 May 2017

Are your assignments piling up? Getting a bit too much to bear? Need to balance your time more effectively?
Well you’re in luck!
AMC is showing Harmony on the 11th of May (that’s next week!) we’ll also be showing the 25-minute short film “Harmonie” (because they’re homonyms).

Who: You and us, let’s watch the movie together!
Where: Greenwood Theatre, Electrical Engineering Building.
When: 6pm-8:45, Thursday May 11

We’ll be showing Harmonie at 6:15pm, and then going on to the main event (The movie), starting Harmony at about 6:45pm.
Why: Because you need more distractions in week 10! (Also, it’ll help* you to improve your study-life balance)
How: Just show up, sign the Green Sheet, grab your free pocky and drink and settle in to watch the movie!
*assistance in the balance of the ratio of study and life is not at all guaranteed. In fact, I don’t believe there is any mention of study-life balance in either of the films.

What we’re showing:
Harmony is a 2-hour delve into a world with perfected health and elongated lifespans, and the trouble that arises from such a utopian world.

Harmonie is completely different to Harmony. In fact, the only similarity is the title (and that they’re both anime). Harmonie is a story about how getting yourself into the world inside someone else’s head can help you connect.

Wanna discuss the trivia questions? Want to compliment the committee for the amazing screening choices they have made for this semester?

Well, we have you covered!

On Thursday, we're having a Discussion Event for you to talk about anything and everything anime and manga (and maybe some things that aren't). Whether it's a detailed thesis on your favourite show or an uncontrollable rant, you'll be sure to find it here. 

Date: Thursday 4th May
Location: Union House 2nd Floor - Graham Cornish A
Time: 2-5pm

We're all chill when it comes to Discussion Events. Feel free to hop in and out according to your schedule. As usual, we'll have our complementary pocky and drink waiting for you.

See you there!
