Screenings


Screenings will be happening Semester 2!

Screenings are happening five times a week this semester. Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursday have screenings from 1pm-2pm while Tuesdays and Fridays have screenings from 12pm-2pm. Come on whichever days your timetable allows and choose from a wide range of shows to follow along with us.

If you can't find the library just inside the screening room it may not be available that day - we try and make sure it's at every screening, but sometimes it's just not possible. If you'd like to check if it'll be available at a specific day, please email [email protected].

A map of the screening locations can be found here.

If you're still (understandably) lost trying to find the screening room, we recommend using this site (they have a handy smartphone app too).

Monday - Flip Flappers

Flip Flappers

Action, Magical Girl, Visual Masterpiece, 2016

https://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=anime&aid=12007

Next Screening: Monday, 28 August 2017
Time: 1:00PM - 2:00PM
Episode(s): 12 - 13

Place: Old Geology Theatre 2

In a colourful, vibrant dreamworld called Pure Illusion, Cocona and Papika transform into magical girls to look for "Shards of Mimi" in one of the most visually creative series in a generation. As an episodic adventure, Cocona and Papika explore distinct worlds each time they return to Pure Illusion, allowing for horror episodes, psychological introspection, and a desertpunk adventure that was definitely not inspired by Mad Max.

 

Tuesday

Place: Old Geology Theatre 1

Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu

Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

Slice of Life, School Club, Non-linear, Science Fiction, 2006

https://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=anime&aid=3651

Next Screening: Tuesday, 29 August 2017
Time: 12:00PM - 1:00PM
Episode(s): 11 - 12

The biggest anime ever a decade ago, Haruhi still captures the imagination of people to this day. The show lampoons all the stereotypes of slice of life highschool shows that were just as common in 2006 as they are now. A part of Kyoto Animation's golden age, the show is unreasonably gorgeous and an absolute must-see.

Please note that we are screening this according to the Broadcast Order, so the first two episodes screened were episode 11, The Adventures of Asahina Mikuru and episode 1, The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi I.

Next Screening: Tuesday, 29 August 2017
Time: 1:00PM - 2:00PM
Episode(s): 12 - 13

Before Madoka created tens of thousands of magical girl fans due to its dark tone, there was Nanoha. Darker than its predecessors, in this new take on the magical girl and her personal relationships, Nanoha tries to maintain her normal life and come to peace with her enemies while collecting the Jewel Seeds, which in the wrong hands could destroy the world.

Time: 1:00PM - 2:00PM
Episode(s): 10 - 11

In the near future, glasses allow an overlay onto the real world - cyberspace. A mystery unfolds as a bunch of kids notice cyberpets going missing and a large creature wondering around.

 

Thursday - Hibike! Euphonium

Next Screening: Thursday, 24 August 2017
Time: 1:00PM - 2:00PM
Episode(s): 10 - 12.5

Place: Redmond Barry Latham Theatre

Hibike Euphonium may at first seem to be K-On with a band, but make no mistake, this show is not a bunch of lighthearted humour and tea gatherings. In one of the best anime dramas ever penned, Kumiko joins the concert band and learns to love the competitive life. The band's dysfunctional characters are hiding some mystery about what happened last year as they aim for the Kyoto Prefectural competition. Why are there so few second years in the band? What is the connection between Kumiko and Reina, the mysterious and determined trumpeter? The only way to find out is by watching.

 

Friday

Place: Old Geology Theatre 1

Next Screening: Friday, 25 August 2017
Time: 12:00PM - 1:00PM
Episode(s): 5

In an ancient Japan not too dissimilar from our own, Shikizaki Kiki (try saying that seven times) made over 1000 swords in his legendary career. The more swords one had, the more successful in battle. Japan is now unified, and the Shogun owns 988 of the swords, but these were only the inferior weapons. Togame, shogunate strategist, has recruited Shichika, the last practitioner of the no-sword school to help her gather the last 12. One of the best works by White Fox (Re: Zero, Steins;Gate) and Nisioisin (Monogatari), it's a colourful double-length adventure.
