AMC 2023 Sem 1 - Annual General Meeting!

Posted by SamCThePotato to the Club blog
3:10PM Sunday, 5 March 2023

Hey AMC,

It’s time for the one and only Annual General Meeting of the year!

Our AGM for 2023 will be held on the 14th of March (Tuesday) from 12pm. It will be held on-campus in Old Arts, room 103 (during the Tuesday screening time slot.)

For more information:

What's an AGM?
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is when the club approves changes to the constitution, as well as votes in the new committee for the year. It’s a chance for you to have your voice heard as a member, by running or nominating others for committee, or voting. You need to be a member to participate in the AGM, so please sign up if you haven’t already! The link is in
📐-rules-📐
on our Discord, or on our website.


The Committee
During the AGM, we'll have elections for the five executive committee positions and four general committee positions. All the committee positions are available, so feel free to put yourself up for any of them! (Note: Only current University of Melbourne students can hold executive positions.) Here’s a brief description of each of the different committee positions, though keep in mind that everyone should help out with each other’s duties and the general running of the club. For more detailed descriptions of each committee position, please refer to our club constitution attached.


The five executive roles are:
President – The president of the club, generally acting as “the face” of the club and ultimately responsible for ensuring the club continues to function properly.

Vice-President – Covers the president’s role if they’re unavailable.

Secretary – Handles minute taking and other administrative details.

Treasurer – Handles finances of the club and presents reports to club members at the Annual General Meeting.

Publications Officer – Handles event announcements and flyers, creating material for letting members know what we’re up to.


The four general committee roles are:
Librarian – Handles the maintenance and updating of the library that the club keeps, as well as the library website (when you feel like it).

Webmaster – Handles maintenance and updating of the club website.

Art Director – Handles art for club proceedings. This is most important to procure art for membership cards, but additional art is appreciated.

Liaison Officer – Handles communication with sponsors, as well as negotiating new sponsors.


The Nominating
As for the nominations themselves, you're free to nominate anyone, including yourself, provided they accept. You can also be nominated for multiple positions so if you don't quite get one position but are still interested in being part of the committee, you can have another go.
If you would like to nominate yourself for a position but won't be present at the AGM, feel free to send in a proxy nomination to bstevenson1@student.unimelb.edu.au. This should include at bare minimum your name and contact details, and ideally a speech (either a Word document, pdf or if you're the creative sort, audio/video recording) that can be read/played at the AGM for your proxy nomination. Keep it under 2 minutes please!


The Constitution
During the proceedings we'll be presenting our constitution and the treasurer's report. We have no amendments to our constitution this year, but we will have a presentation of the treasurer's report which will show how we've managed our grant money and other budgetary type stuff.


The Summary
- We'll be electing a new committee
- We'll be presenting the constitution and treasurer's report

The club constitution, the AGM agenda and the draft financial report are attached on the Discord and email announcements.

Thanks for reading through all that! We hope to see you at our time for democracy~

AMC 2022 Sem 2 W8 - SGM (Again)

Posted by SamCThePotato to the Club blog
7:15PM Monday, 12 September 2022

Hello AMC,

Today we have a slightly different announcement! We need to reconvene our Special General Meeting (SGM) from earlier this semester, and we plan to have it next week.

The Special General Meeting (SGM) is like our Annual General Meeting, but shorter. In this SGM, we will be ratifying proposed changes to the AMC Constitution. An outline of the changes to the constitution, as well as copies of the current constitution and with the amended changes, are attached to this announcement (see full announcement for links.) In short:
- We've proposed to change the wording of our committee role descriptions, to better reflect and clarify their duties.
- We've proposed to change the Publications Officer to an executive role, for reasons pertaining to the UMSU website. In addition to this, because the Publications Officer is becoming an executive role, we will be re-electing this position. This position is open to any club members that are University of Melbourne students, and any club member is allowed to vote AND nominate in this election.
- For any proxy nominations, please email our Returning Officer at bstevenson1@student.unimelb.edu.au

We will be holding the Special General Meeting after our Monday Screening next week, but it most likely won’t take too long so we should be able to resume Weekly Meetup shortly afterwards.

We need 20 AMC members who are also University of Melbourne students to attend so that we can make quorum, so if you have time make sure to come along, as the SGM is your chance to have a say in the club!

Event: Special General Meeting
When: 2:30pm, Monday 19/09.
Where: Old Arts, room 103
We will also be holding it online, on a concurrent Zoom link (see full announcement.)

Thanks,
- Your AMC Committee

The payment deadline is tonight, but we're extending it so that if you have not paid for your order before Friday night, your shirt reservation will be taken away, meaning you might miss out on getting your shirt!

AMC 2022 Annual General Meeting Announcement

Posted by Sakuya to the Club blog
10:20PM Monday, 7 March 2022

Hi AMC!

It’s time for the one and only Annual General Meeting of the year!

Our AGM for 2022 will be held on the 15th of March (Tuesday) from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. It will be held on-campus in Arts West North Wing, Room 261.
It’ll also be held on Zoom through here:
Link: https://unimelb.zoom.us/j/84055291160?pwd=OWJ0Q3V0RmIydUJ3NjYxYUIvV3VyUT09
Meeting ID: 840 5529 1160
Passcode: 875965
 
For more information:
What's an AGM?
The AGM is when the club approves changes to the constitution, as well as votes in the new committee for the year. It’s a chance for you to have your voice heard as a member, by running or nominating others for committee, or voting. You need to be a member to vote, so please sign up if you haven’t already! The link is in #rules on our Discord, or on our website.
 
The Committee
During the AGM, we'll have elections for the four executive committee positions and five general committee positions. All the committee positions are available, so feel free to put yourself up for any of them! (Note: Only current University of Melbourne students can hold executive positions.) Here’s a brief description of each of the different committee positions, though keep in mind that everyone can and should help out with each other’s duties and the general running of the club.
 
The four executive roles are:
President – The president of the club, generally acting as “the face” of the club and ultimately responsible for ensuring the club continues to function properly.
Vice-President – Covers the president’s role if they’re unavailable.
Secretary – Handles minute taking and other administrative details.
Treasurer – Handles finances of the club and presents reports to club members at the Annual General Meeting.
 
The five general committee roles are:
Librarian – Handles the maintenance and updating of the library that the club keeps, as well as the library website (when you feel like it).
Webmaster – Handles maintenance and updating of the club website.
Publications Officer – Handles event announcements and flyers, creating material for letting members know what we’re up to.
Art Director – Handles art for club proceedings. This is most important to procure art for membership cards, but additional art is appreciated.
Liaison Officer – Handles communication with sponsors, sometimes negotiating new sponsors.
 
The Nominating
As for the nominations themselves, you're free to nominate anyone, including yourself, provided they accept. You can also be nominated for multiple positions so if you don't quite get one position but are still interested in being part of the committee, you can have another go.
If you would like to nominate yourself for a position but won't be present at the AGM, feel free to send in a proxy nomination to (bstevenson1@student.unimelb.edu.au). This should include at bare minimum your name and contact details, and ideally a speech (either a Word document, pdf or if you're the creative sort, audio/video recording) that can be read/played at the AGM for your proxy nomination. Keep it under 2 minutes please!
 
The Constitution
During the proceedings we'll be presenting our constitution and the treasurer's report. We have no amendments to our constitution this year, but we will have a presentation of the treasurer's report which will show how we've managed our grant money and other budgetary type stuff. The treasurer will explain better.
 
The Summary
- We'll be electing new committee
- We'll be presenting the constitution and treasurer report
 
The club constitution, the AGM agenda and the draft financial reports are attached.

1. Club Constitution 
2. AGM Agenda 
3. Draft Financial Report
 
Thanks for reading through all that! We hope to see you at our time for democracy~

AMC 2021 - New partnership with Madman!

Posted by Sakuya to the Club blog
7:35AM Thursday, 1 April 2021

Hello Everyone

Just a quick announcement today but it's pretty important. This is a pretty hard to explain because you see our profits last year for the club wasn't that great and only through a thorough investigation few months back, there was a stream of money flowing out of the club. We were going to run out of funds due to superchats donated by someone on the Executive committee last year. HOWEVER, we do not need to fill out a bankruptcy form since our friends at Madman reached out to get us through these hard times. We have established a new partnership with Madman this year and we hope to get goodies and exclusive passes to their conventions this year! So stay tuned for more information!

AMC 2021 - AGM Announcement!

Posted by Plyasm to the Club blog
4:04PM Friday, 12 March 2021

Hi everyone! 

It’s time for the one and only Annual General Meeting of the year (hopefully)! 

Our AGM for 2021 will be held on the 18th of March (Thursday) from 6 pm to 8 pm. It’ll be held on Zoom through here:

https://unimelb.zoom.us/j/82982588803?pwd=QmpyaGNjRjRNMWVUUWJLb0QwWDBYQT09

Meeting ID: 82982588803

Password: 613702

 

For more information:

What's an AGM?

The AGM is when the club approves constitutional changes as well as votes in the new committee for the rest of the year. It's your chance to have your voice heard by running or nominating for committee, getting to know our official dealings like the constitution and treasurer's report, and/or just participating in the voting! You need to be a member to participate so do sign up if you haven’t - the link is right here on our website!

 

The Committee

During the AGM, we'll have elections for the four executive committee positions and five general committee positions. All committee positions are up for grabs so feel free to have a go! (Please note that only University of Melbourne students can hold executive positions). Here's a quick rundown of all the different positions, though keep in mind that everyone can and should pitch in with each other's duties and the general running of club things.

 

The four executive roles are:

  • President – The president of the club, generally acting as “the face” of the club and ultimately responsible for ensuring the club continues to function properly.
  • Vice-President – Covers the president’s role if they’re unavailable.
  • Secretary – Handles minute taking and other administrative details.
  • Treasurer – Handles finances of the club and presents reports to club members at the Annual General Meeting.

 

The five general committee roles are:

  • Librarian – Handles the maintenance and updating of the library that the club keeps, as well as the library website (when you feel like it).
  • Webmaster – Handles maintenance and updating of the website.
  • Publications Officer– Handles events and flyers, creating material for letting members know what we’re up to.
  • Art Director – Handles art for club proceedings. This is most important to procure art for membership cards, but additional art is appreciated.
  • Liaison Officer – Handles communication with sponsors, sometimes negotiating new sponsors.

 

The Nomination process

As for the nominations themselves, you're free to nominate anyone, including yourself, provided they accept. You can also be nominated for multiple positions so if you don't quite get one position but are still interested in being part of committee, you can have another go.

If you would like to nominate yourself for a position but won't be present at the AGM, feel free to send in a proxy nomination to the returning officer Blair at ro@amc.moe. This should include at bare minimum your name and contact details, and ideally a speech (either a Word document, pdf or if you're the creative sort, audio/video recording) that can be read/played at the AGM for your proxy nomination. Keep it under 2 minutes please!

 

The Constitution

During the proceedings we'll be presenting our constitution and the treasurer's report. We have no amendments to our constitution this year, but we will have a presentation of the treasurer's report which will show how we've managed our grant money and other budgetary type stuff. The treasurer will explain better.

 

The Summary

- we'll be electing a new committee

- we'll be presenting the constitution and executive reports

 

Documents:

[2020 Constitution]

[2021 AGM Agenda]

[2021 Financial Reports]

 

Thanks for reading through that! Hope to see everyone at the AMC democracy tiem!

AMC 2020 - Week Ten Movie Night

Posted by Anii to the Club blog
4:20PM Monday, 12 October 2020

Heya!

Hope you're having a wonderful week. This week, screenings and meetups will be running as per usual <3

Also this week we will be streaming Paprika, Satoshi Kon's delve into the world of dreams and the weak threads that exist between fantasy and reality.
alternately: Paprika is a ground spice made from dried red fruits of sweeter varieties of the plant Capsicum annuum. It is traditionally made from Capsicum annuum varietals in the Longum group, which also includes chili peppers, but the peppers used for paprika tend to be milder and have thinner flesh. In many languages, but not English, the word paprika also refers to the plant and the fruit from which the spice is made, as well as to peppers in the Grossum group (e.g. bell peppers).
(from wikipedia)
Content warnings: Intense imagery, implied sexual violence (this one's complicated, contact chewyfitz, watari, currently BWAH-tari, or apple in the discord server if you need more information on this)
When: 18:00-21:00, Thursday, 22/10/2020

4:05PM Wednesday, 22 July 2020

Hello everyone! We've got some stuffs going on this week, namely the Online Games event!

It's been a while since the last game night(even though it's in the afternoon), so it's a good thing we're hosting it again!

This time, we'll be possibly focusing on Mahjong, which gained some popularity recently, Drawful, and perhaps even the revival of Cards Against Humanity since we've salvaged our decks somewhat and there's a new site found to replace it. Though, those are just possible games we could be doing, so maybe we might even get on with some Netgames.io action!

Either way, come join us for games night this Friday!

TL;DR:

24/07/2020 Friday, 2pm, Games night

Possible games: Mahjong, Drawful, CAH, Netgames.io etc

Join discord VCs when it happens

AMC 2020 - Week Eight Movie Night

Posted by Anii to the Club blog
3:25PM Sunday, 26 April 2020

G'day!

As always, screenigns and weekli meetup will be running as per normal :>

And without further ado, the announcement of this weeks movie event!

For those of you who enjoyed Wolf Children, we have another movie directed by Mamoru Hosoda, Summer Wars! It’s a love comedy, it’s a science fiction movie, it’s a high stakes thriller- Summer Wars is a crazy movie that explores both the pros and perils of living in a 2010 online society as a generic Japanese teenager. Also shoutouts to his co-writer Satoko Okudera who also worked on both movies.

As for our short… Did someone say Mamoru Hosoda triple dip? The title’s a secret, but if you want to know more, it’s the OVA that directly inspired Summer Wars. Not a movie to be judged by its cover, Hosoda’s tight direction allows this OVA to transcend its roots in the shonen genre and stand as an authentic, aesthetically masterful production in its own right.
When: 18:00-21:00, Wednesday, 29/04/2020
Where: The Watch Together Channel in the AMC Discord

As always, stay healthy and safe frens, and we hope to see you at the movie~

AMC2020 - Annual General Meeting

Posted by Watari to the Club blog
9:30PM Tuesday, 10 March 2020

Hello everyone! It's that time of year again. Time for the Annual General Meeting! Our AGM for 2020 will be held on the 17th of March at Old Arts Theatre C from 12 pm to 2 pm (in other words in place of the regular screening). "But wait!" I hear you cry. 

"What's an AGM?"

The AGM is when the club approves constitutional changes as well as votes in the new committee for the rest of the year. It's your chance to have your voice heard by nominating for committee (either other people or yourself!), getting to know our official dealings (like the constitution and treasurer's report) and/or just participating in the voting!
Most importantly it means FREE PIZZA! (After the meeting)

The Committee

During the AGM we'll have elections for the four executive committee positions and five general committee positions. All committee positions are up for grabs so feel free to have a go! (Please note that only University of Melbourne students can hold executive positions). Here's quick rundown of all the different positions, though keep in mind that everyone can and should pitch in with each other's duties and the general running of club things.

The four executive roles are:
President – The president of the club, generally acting as “the face” of the club and ultimately responsible for ensuring the club continues to function properly.
Vice-President – Covers the president’s role if they’re unavailable.
Secretary – Handles minute taking and other administrative details.
Treasurer – Handles finances of the club and presents reports to club members at the Annual General Meeting.

The five general committee roles are:
Librarian – Handles the maintenance and updating of the library that the club keeps, as well as the library website (when you feel like it).
Webmaster – Handles maintenance and updating of the website.
Publications Officer – Handles events and flyers, creating material for letting members know what we’re up to.
Art Director – Handles art for club proceedings, this is most important to procure art for membership cards, but additional art is appreciated.
Liaison Officer – Handles communication with sponsors, sometimes negotiating new sponsors.

The Nominating

As for the nominations themselves, you're free to nominate anyone (including yourself) provided they accept. You can also be nominated for multiple positions so if you don't quite get one position but are still interested in being part of committee you can have another go.

If you would like to nominate yourself for a position but won't be present at the AGM, feel free to send in a proxy nomination to me (publications@amc.moe). This should include at bare minimum your name and contact details and ideally a speech (either just a Word document, pdf or if you're the creative sort audio or video recording) that can be read/played at the AGM for your proxy nomination. Keep it under two minutes though!

The Constitution

During the proceedings we'll be presenting our constitution and the treasurer's report. There are a few amendments to the current constitution that need to be passed as motions during the AGM. Feel free to take a look at our current constitution and the proposed, UMSU-approved amendments linked below to see what we’d like to change. We'll also have a presentation of the treasurer's report which will show how we've managed our grant money and other budgetary type stuff. The treasurer will explain better.

The Summary

In clear bullet points:
- we'll be electing new committee
- we'll be presenting constitution and treasurer report
- there will be pizza after the meeting

Links to Document Stuff

- AMC's Current Constitution
- Constitution with proposed amendments
- Agenda for the meeting

Phew. That was a long 'un. We both deserve pats on backs for getting through that. Anyway, hope to see you there and enacting democracy!

Thanks to everyone that went to Movie Night last Thursday! Hope you enjoyed watching Princess Mononoke! And Hero Yoshihiko! The midsems they are a-coming, as are our events for this week.

AMC2019 - Drawing Event

Posted by Watari to the Club blog
8:44PM Saturday, 17 August 2019

Evening everyone!

Hope you guys had fun at last week's meetup and at the movie night! We've got two things lined up for the coming week. One official and one less official.

The first is our first Drawing Event of Semester 2! Some of you may have already done some doodling at the meetups but this time you can use your FULL POWER. Or not. This is just a chill session where people can draw and get their art showcased on the Discord and potentially Facebook too!? In any case, should be lots of fun!

What: Drawing Event!
When: Friday, 23 August 2019. 2:15 pm - 5:15 pm
Where: David Caro Podium 211

The second is more of a chance to watch something with the club rather than an offical screening. Some of us were planning on catching Weathering with You when it screens at Cinema Nova on Friday, the 23rd of August. In other words: right after the Drawing Event!

If you'd like to join, you'll have to buy your own tickets. We'll have more details up closer to the date (i.e. which row most people will have booked in) but most likely we'll hang out before and after the session and even potentially have dinner somewhere on Lygon St immediately before the movie. So come along and hang out if you want!

 

That's all for now. Hope to see you soon!

Note about karaoke: Please send an email to publications@amc.moe, click 'Going' on the Facebook event or send me (Watari#1915) a message on Discord with your name and phone number if you're interested in coming since we need to inform KBox the number of people we have so an appropriate room can be prepared.

First thing that'll happen for the break is the Cosplay Picnic! Put your costumes on and come relax at South Lawn with us. Snacks and other light refreshments provided! Boardgames too! We'll also have a room for costume changing/adjustments or if the weather turns sour.

AMC2019 - New Screenings! Club Update! April Fools!

Chewyfitz Posted by Chewyfitz to the Club blog
1:01AM Monday, 1 April 2019

Hello AMC! Your new committee have contemplated over the direction of this club and how we can best cater to all of your needs. We've always been a club that focuses on further spreading the wonderful parts of Japanese culture. But we've realized that anime and manga has already spread far and wide as is. There are many other wonderful and culturally rich aspects of Japan that have often been overlooked, and that we feel should be shared with our club members!

It is therefore with great excitement that we announce the brand new Amazing jdraMa Club!

To complement this new direction, we hope you'll enjoy the updated website design, and the brand new set of screenings we're offering for the rest of the semester!

Monday - Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju
Tuesday - Mr. Brain and Hana Yori Dango
Wednesday - Nodame Cantabile
Thursday - Galileo
Friday - Yuusha Yoshihiko to Maou no Shiro

More information on these screenings can be found on the screenings page

2019 Annual General Meeting

Posted by Usagi to the Club blog
9:07PM Monday, 11 March 2019

Hi everyone!

This year, just like every year, we’ll be having an AGM! It’ll be on from 12:00 at Old Arts - South Theatre (224) on Tuesday 19th March 2019. It will replace our Nichijou screening for the week. We’ll screen as much Nichibros as we have time for, but the AGM has been known to take most of the 2-hour period, so that screening may also be replaced.

The first item of interest is: free pizza! We’ll have free pizza after the AGM ends, so do come along!

What’s an AGM?
The AGM is our Annual General Meeting, where the current committee reports on the previous year, we vote on possible changes to the constitution and the club elects the committee for the next year.

Elections?
Yep, just like you might have seen in anime and manga, the club also elects representatives to run their school club. This year we’ll be electing four executives and five general committee members. The executive positions can be filled by any University of Melbourne students and general committee positions can be filled by anyone, so please feel free to run if you’d like.

What are the positions?
The official duties of each committee member are described in the constitution. Beyond ensuring all bases are covered for basic operations, the roles can be largely fluid. Here are some notional descriptions for each position to give you an idea which you might be interested in.

The four executive roles are:
President – The president of the club, generally acting as “the face” of the club and ultimately responsible for ensuring the club continues to function properly.
Vice-President – Covers the president’s role if they’re unavailable.
Secretary – Handles minute taking and other administrative details.
Treasurer – Handles finances of the club and presents reports to club members at the Annual General Meeting.

The five general committee roles are:
Librarian – Handles the maintenance and updating of the library that the club keeps, as well as the library website (when you feel like it).
Webmaster – Handles maintenance and updating of the website.
Publications Officer – Handles events and flyers, creating material for letting members know what we’re up to.
Art Director – Handles art for club proceedings, this is most important to procure art for membership cards, but additional art is appreciated.
Liaison Officer – Handles communication with sponsors, sometimes negotiating new sponsors.
All these positions are up for grabs, so feel free to run.

Speeches?
You’ll be given a little bit of time to give a quick speech (1 minute for General roles and 2min for Executive roles) about who you are and why you want the role you’re going for. You can put anything you like in the speech, but a heads up that most of these generally, err... are on the informal side, so no need to be too formal!

Nominations?
There are two ways to nominate for a position: regular and proxy nominations. For the regular nomination, the Returning Officer will ask attendees for any nominations. When this happens, any person may nominate any person (including themselves) for the position. If the nominated person chooses to accept this nomination, then they are nominated for that position. Also, you can certainly be nominated and run for multiple positions. These occur in the meeting itself.

The second way to nominate for a position is a proxy nomination. If you can’t make it to the meeting, you can email the Returning Officer, Grady, at webmaster@amc.moe with your speech and name and details (email and phone number you prefer to be contacted on, student number, course, etc.), and you’ll be nominated by proxy. I, the Returning Officer, will read out your speech at the meeting in your stead. You can also send audio or video media or something along those lines, though do keep in mind the maximum speech durations. If you do submit such a file, it is recommended that you provide a transcript in case technical difficulties arise.

Returning Officer?
The Returning Officer can’t run for any positions, will chair the meeting, handle votes and act as an impartial observer for the meeting, so you can trust that no funny business is going on.

Amendments?
This year we have a few proposed amendments to the constitution. These are all intended to improve clarity in the club’s aims and committee’s powers. The proposed amendments are attached via the link at the bottom.

These will be discussed at the AGM, though, unless C&S grants us permission outside usual approval procedures, these will not be adopted this AGM.

We intend to vote on the acceptability of these changes en bloc, if the vote fails to achieve a majority, we’ll vote to accept all parts which have majority agreement, any amendments which still need discussion will be modified and ratified at a later AGM after modification. This vote won’t bind any resolution for the next AGM but should streamline the process and help us form a clear formal club consensus.

Current Constitution?
You can find the current constitution linked at the end of this email.

What else is on?
The President’s and Treasurer’s reports will be presented, which will cover how the club went over the past year and then we’ll be having (free) pizza, so feel free to grab some slices! Just don’t forget to sign the attendance sheet.

The Treasurer has prepared a preliminary Treasurer’s report that you can look over and question anything regarding. This won’t be the final report as we’ll incur some income and expenses at the Welcome Back Party, however, should give good insight into where the club is sitting.

What if you’re not a Member?
You can sign up for the club at the AGM and participate without any issues.

Too Long
- Free Pizza
- Returning Officer will be Grady (who you can email at webmaster@amc.moe)
- Elections will be happening
- Meeting opens Tuesday 19th March 2019, South Theatre, Old Arts-224, 12:00
- We have some amendments for the constitution to discuss (but we won’t be adopting them this AGM)

Links:
- Anime and Manga Club’s Current Constitution
- AGM Agenda
- Financial Report (Preliminary)
- Proposed Amendments

If you made it to the end of this announcement, congrats and thank you! It's a long one, but the AGM is an important event for us as it enables us to keep the club going and to keep holding the events you love! If you're passionate about anime and manga and would like to make a difference and give back to this awesome community, then we absolutely encourage you to run!

See you there!
Your 2018 – 2019 AMC Committee

6:22PM Thursday, 15 November 2018

Hey AMCers,

We've got a marathon coming up and we've got all the anime, all we're missing is you! Exams end tomorrow, which means Wednesday next week is the perfect time to jump into our marathon and start prioritising that backlog.

We'll be bringing along the new shows of the season, but also plenty of classics you may have never even heard of. We'll probably utilise our atmospheric audience participation machine to put the power in your hands as usual, so if there's something you think you might want us to watch, your gem in the rough, let us know by telling us on Discord (https://discord.gg/C3xJ86r) or mailing web@amc.moe and we'll do our best to make sure we have it on hand!

When: Wednesday, 21st November
Uh, When: 10am - 5pm
Where: Old Geology Theatre 2 (B-25)

Come along and enjoy a bit of anime!

AMC AGM!

Posted by Giffo to the Club blog
4:31PM Monday, 12 March 2018

Hi AMC!

We'll be having an AGM next week on Tuesday instead of our usual screenings (that is, 12:05 at Old Arts Theatre A, Tuesday 13th March 2018, but feel free to get there at 12:00)!

That means elections! New committee! And perhaps most of all...

🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕
👌FREE PIZZA!👌
🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕

What's an AGM, you ask?
The AGM is our Annual General Meeting, it's where members decide on all matters of the running of the club, such as electing the committee for the next year!

What's this, Elections?
Yep, at the AGM we will be electing four people to the new executive committee and five people to the general committee. These positions are open to any University of Melbourne student, first year, second year or even twentieth year. So if you're interested in supporting and being part of the running of the club we strongly encourage you to give it a try!

If you're not a University of Melbourne student, you unfortunately cannot run for an executive position as mandated by the club's constitution, but you're more than welcome to run for a general committee position.

What are the positions?
Look at the constitution for what exactly is involved in each of the roles, but here's a general overview (in election order):

The executive committee has 4 positions:

President - The president of the club, generally acts as “the face” of the club and makes sure the club is running as it should. Exactly how much work is involved in this role (and others!) varies from committee to committee.

Vice-President - Covers the president's role if they're unavailable.

Secretary - Handles minute taking and other administrative details.

Treasurer - Handles finances of the club. The treasurer's work is to handle the finances of the club, keeping track of finances and presenting reports to club members at Annual General Meetings.

The general committee has 5 positions:

Librarian - Handles the maintenance and updating of the library (that is, the NAS) that the club keeps as well as the library website for members to visit.

Webmaster - Handles the maintenance and updating of the club's website, email membership lists and so forth.

Publications Officer - Handles events and flyers, creating material for letting members know what we're up to.

Art Director - Handles art for club proceedings, this is most important to procure art for membership cards, but any additional art is also usually appreciated.

Liaison Officer - Handles communication with sponsors, sometimes negotiating new sponsors.

All positions are up for grabs so feel free to run!

Can you give a speech?
Of course! In fact, you should! When running for a position, you'll be permitted to make a short speech (2 minutes for an executive committee position, 1 minute for a general committee position) about who you are, and why you should be elected. The speech can contain anything you like, but having said that there's no need to be too formal - our club is pretty casual!

How do nominations work?
There are two types of nominations: regular nominations and proxy nominations.

Regular nominations are those which are taken from those attending the meeting. The Returning Officer will ask attendees for any nominations prior to voting for a given position. When this occurs, an attendee may nominate any attendee (including themselves), which must be seconded by another person other than the nominee. If the nominated person chooses to accept this nomination, then they are nominated for that position.

Proxy nominations are for those who would like to run for a position but are unable to attend the meeting. People can only nominate themselves with proxy nominations, and no seconding is required. To do so, contact the Returning Officer (see below) with your name and which position(s) you would like to run for. You may optionally (but recommended!) submit a speech which the Returning Officer will read out for you, keeping in mind the maximum speech durations. You may alternatively submit a video, audio file or something along those lines instead if preferred, though in these cases a transcript is recommended in the event of technical difficulties. Note that if you are elected to a position, any proxy nominations for yet-to-be elected positions will be withdrawn. Also, proxy nominations must come before the AGM commences otherwise it cannot be accepted.

You are welcome to be nominated and run for multiple positions.

Wait, what's the Returning Officer?
The Returning Officer conducts the election. They are impartial and can neither run for a position, vote nor second a nomination. If you have any questions or would like to submit a proxy nomination, please contact them!

The Returning Officer for this election is Nicholas Brown, who can be contacted at treasurer@amc.moe.

All proxy nominations must come through via email. Facebook, Discord, verbal communication or anything other than email cannot be accepted.

The Returning Officer will attempt to email acknowledgement of receipt of a proxy nomination. If you do not receive such an acknowledgement within 24 hours, please feel free to message them such as via the club's Discord (@Mokogari) in case there are technical difficulties or the email is missed.

Do you have to send the Returning Officer an email if you'll actually be there?
Nope, non-proxy nominations happen in the meeting itself, where self-nominations can be made and nominations from others can be declined or accepted by the person themself.

Where's the current club constitution?
See below!

What else is on?
The President's and Treasurer's reports will be presented covering the club’s state over the past year, and also we'll be having (free) pizza at the AGM, so feel free to grab some slices! Just don’t forget to sign the attendance sheet :)

What if you're not a member?
You must be a club member to participate, but you can sign up for the club at the venue before the AGM starts - no dramas. Please come early if this is you though!

What's that, that was too long and you didn't read it?
- Free Pizza
- Returning Officer is Nicholas Brown (contact him at treasurer@amc.moe)
- Elections
- Meeting opens at Tuesday 13th March 2017, Old Arts Theatre A, 12:05

Monday Screening Cancellation for Week 2/March 5th

Posted by Limyaael to the Club blog
10:18PM Sunday, 4 March 2018

Unfortunately due to booking difficulties our Monday screening for this week has been cancelled. This means that for the next few weeks afterwards we will be screening extra half episodes (and likely skipping op/eds) during future screenings to make up for the time we've lost because of this. We hope you still stick with our screening of Hanasaku Iroha.

Discussion Event 1

12:30PM Tuesday, 27 February 2018

We forgot to add this to the website until now, but ignoring that...

First, a big welcome to all the new members who have joined us this semester, and of course, a big welcome back to our old members to this new semester. Now you will be dumped with assignments and tests! (But of course, we do not care about those. Time for more anime.)

On Thursday, we're having our first event of the 2018 Semester 1; a Discussion Event. This event is for you to talk about anything and everything anime and manga (and maybe some things that aren't) and mock each other’s taste, and question why you even watch Eromanga Sensei.

Date: Thursday 1st March
Time: 2pm to 5pm
Location: Joe Napolitano A

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.

AMC O-Week Stall and Marathon

Posted by Limyaael to the Club blog
12:30AM Friday, 16 February 2018

Hi everyone! It's been a while.

As you may know, next week is O-week, and as always we have a stall. I hope you're excited. This year it's on Wednesday the 21st on sunny South Lawn between 11am and 3pm. You'll need to come to the stall to get your membership renewed, which comes along with a great looking new club card with wonderful art from our director, Joo Liew.

We're also holding an anime marathon; a full day of animu watching from 10am-5pm. This will probably be a mix of recent committee favourites and audience participation, so think ahead about the worst thing you can stand watching for twenty minutes to torture everyone else in attendance, and don't forget your debating skills to force the committee into showing it. You can also, as a newly signed up member of the club, get a box of Pocky and a drink. If you're new to the university and don't know where you're going, don't be afraid of asking the committee manning the stall for help finding the theatre.

Oh and there are some other clubs at O-week you could sign up for too. But why do that when there's anime to watch?

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.

Anidb: https://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=anime&aid=996
Myanimelist: https://myanimelist.net/anime/1089

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.

Union house has a third Floor? - (Quiet) Discussion Event 2

Posted by Limyaael to the Club blog
12:00AM Friday, 18 August 2017

Date: 24th August
Time: 2 - 5pm
Location: Training Room 1 (3rd Floor of the Union House)

"Where is training room 1?"
"Is the third floor replacing the second floor?"

Well, no. Hopefully. This week, the arts department has booked every single room on the second floor so we couldn't get any of them. Go blame them.

It's another discussion event, but unlike last time we have to be a little quieter. Other clubs (like SEE) have actually gotten thrown out of these rooms in the past, as they have little sound proofing on them. But don't let that stop you from coming, as we'll still have plenty of discussion. Want to talk about Fate/apocrypha? Kakegurui? Steins;gate? Flying Witch? Come along.

Pocky and drinks, as per usual, are provided to all members who come and sign the green sheet.

See you there (◠‿◠✿)

Definitely Not A Silent Voice Movie Night - The Children Who Chase Lost Voices

What: The Children Who Chase Lost Voices (Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo) (http://anidbt.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=anime&aid=8073)

When: Thursday 17th August, 2017,
6:15PM – 8:45PM
(Movie will start at around 6:45, and runs for approximately 2 hours)

Where: Old Geology B-25 (Theatre 2)

Seems to be about time for another event: we didn’t even have anything for our members to do this week (apart from screenings of course!)

I believe many of you have heard of the famed anime movie director Shinkai Makoto: who gave us some masterpieces such as 5cm per second and The Garden of Words. (What? There’s a movie I forgot to mention? Weird, it must have been a horrible, failed, not well-known movie from him.)

So why am I even talking about Shinkai Makoto you ask? Well, it is obviously because the next movie we will be showcasing to you guys will be ‘Children who Chase Lost Voices’ directed by him! 

Come and join us in watching the movie together as a group to have some laugh and once again make some jokes about politics and trump. As usual, a free pocky and drink is provided to all who comes and sign the green sheet.

As this is a very casual event so go ahead and bring your friends and family and non-weebs to force them to become a weeb as well.

 

Will see you there.

9:18PM Tuesday, 18 July 2017

Uni starts again in few weeks. However, anime will never stop. I present you Semester 2, O-Week events of 2017.

Firstly, we got the O-Week marathon happening in the old geology building. Typically watching around 2 episodes of each show, so feel free to drop in whenever you can! Also as usual, attendees can pick up a free pocky and drink! Furthermore, we're gonna have the NAS there, too, so you've got this one chance to borrow anime from us and marathon it by yourself or with your family or friends before the new semester begins. (I highly recommend Blood C) 

Also, some of us committee folk will be standing out in the sun (or cloud. Hopefully it doesn’t rain) all day on the same day. You'll find us on Union Lawn somewhere. Come drop in to get your membership if you have not joined the club yet, or come to say hi to our amazing leader Dohwon Kim. Everyone who comes to the stall will receive a free pocky as you do a sign up.

We will see you all soon and enjoy the rest of your holidays.

End of Exams Marathon!

Posted by Giffo to the Club blog
12:12AM Saturday, 17 June 2017

The exams have finally come to an end, and after the club has collectively slayed that dragon, it's back to fun times and anime watching.

We're going to be doing a lot of anime watching at the Singapore Theatre (basement level of MSD) on the Wednesday after exams are over. Join us for a full marathon day from 9am until 5 in the afternoon. You can come in anytime you like and leave as you please. Usually we only play two or so episodes of a show (unless it's Inferno Cop) so there's a lot of variety and plenty of opportunities for crowd suggestions. We will, of course, be screening the McDonalds anime ad "Mirai no Watashi."

When: Wednesday June 28, 9 am to 5 pm.

Where: Singapore Theatre, Melbourne School of Design.

Why: Because anime is cool*

*Recent research, in fact, indicates the opposite.

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.
Anidb
MAL

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.

Mid-semester Break Marathon

Posted by Andrew to the Club blog

Easter is upon us, and that means a mid-semester break! And what's more, that means it is time for our traditional mid-semester break marathon!

For those who are not familiar with how these events are run - it's simple! We'll be screening the first two episodes of a bunch of different shows throughout the day, taking advantage of the large screens provided by the university's projectors. Because what else are the projectors there for, other than watching anime?

Anyway, it's bound to be a lot of fun, and there's no need to be there the entire day. You can just drop in and out as your heart desires - no stress!

And, did we mention the free can of drink and box of Pocky that will be provided to members who come?

AGM

Posted by Mokogari to the Club blog
4:45PM Sunday, 5 March 2017

We'll be having an AGM next week on Tuesday instead of Ben-To (that is, 12:00 at Old Geology Theatre 2, Tuesday 14th March 2017, we won't start until 12:05, but feel free to get there at 12:00)!

First of all, FREE PIZZA.

What's an AGM you ask?
The AGM is our Annual General Meeting, it's where members decide on all matters of the running of the club! Such as adding an amendment to the constitution or electing all the new members for the next year!

What's this, Elections?
Yep, at the AGM we will be electing four people to the new executive committee and five people to the general committee. These positions are open to anyone (except the Returning Officer) so feel free to run if you'd like!

What are the positions?
Look at the constitution for what exactly is involved, but here's a general overview:

The executive committee has 4 positions:

President - The president of the club, generally acts as “the face” of the club and makes sure the club is running as it should. Exactly how much work is involved in this role (and others!) varies from committee to committee.

Vice-President - Covers the president's role if they're unavailable.

Secretary - Handles minute taking and other administrative details.

Treasurer - Handles finances of the club. The treasurer's work is to handle the finances of the club, keeping track of finances and presenting reports to club members at Annual General Meetings.

The general committee has 5 positions:

Librarian - Handles the maintenance and updating of the library that the club keeps as well as the website for members to visit. This role will often have a fair amount of contact with the librarians of old.

Webmaster - Handles the maintenance and updating of the website.

Publications Officer - Handles events and flyers, creating material for letting members know what we're up to.

Art Director - Handles art for club proceedings, this is most important to procure art for membership cards, but any additional art is also usually appreciated.

Liaison Officer - Handles communication with sponsors, sometimes negotiating new sponsors.

All positions are up for grabs so feel free to run!

Can you give a speech?
Of course! In fact, you should! When running for a position, you'll be permitted to make a short speech (2 minutes for an executive committee position, 1 minute for a general committee position) about who you are, and why you should be elected. The speech can contain anything you like, but there's no need to be too formal!

How do nominations work?
There are two main types of nominations: regular nominations and proxy nominations. For the former, the Returning Officer will ask attendees for any nominations. When this happens, any person may nominate any person (including themselves), which must be seconded by another person other than the nominee. If the nominated person chooses to accept this nomination, then they are nominated for that position. Also, you are certainly allowed to be nominated, and run, for multiple positions. But what if you can’t make it to the meeting itself? Well then read on to the following question...

Can you still run if you can't make it?
Yep, contact the Returning Officer, Grady, at librarian@amc.moe with your speech and name and details (email and phone number you prefer to be contacted on, student number, course, etc.), and you’ll be nominated in proxy. Grady will read out your speech at the meeting in your stead. You may alternatively send an audio or video file or something along those lines, keeping in mind the maximum speech durations. If you do submit such a file, it is recommended that you provide a transcript in the case of technical difficulties.

What's that, you're worried Grady will ignore your proxy nomination?
Don't worry, as Grady is the Returning Officer, he can't run for any positions and will be handling the voting, so nothing should go wrong. You will need to make sure to get your nomination in before the meeting begins though, as Grady will be busy with the AGM and we can't guarantee your nomination won't come in after voting has finished.

Do you have to send Grady an email if you'll actually be there?
Nope, non-proxy nominations happen in the meeting itself, where self-nominations can be made and nominations from others can be declined or accepted by the person themself.

Do you need to be a student?
You can run for Executive Committee positions only if you're a current University of Melbourne student, but if you aren't, you can still run for General Committee positions. It’s only Executive Committee positions that are off the table in this case.

What's that, amendments to the constitution?
Ah no, none this AGM, you must have misheard.

Where's the current constitution?
See below!

What else is on?
The President's and Treasurer's reports will be presented covering the club’s state over the past year, and also we'll be having (free) pizza at the AGM, so feel free to grab some slices! Just don’t forget to sign the attendance sheet :)

What if you're not a member?
You can sign up for the club at the AGM and participate, no dramas.

What's that, that was too long and you didn't read it?
- Free Pizza
- Returning Officer is Grady (contact him at librarian@amc.moe)
- Elections
- Meeting opens at Tuesday 14th March 2017, Old Geology Theatre 2, 12:05

Trivia Night

Posted by Giffo to the Club blog
7:00AM Friday, 14 October 2016

What's that feeling of doom in the air? Why won't people talk to you? Why are they all staring at their laptops, muttering? The answer is, of course, that they're cramming for the Semester 2 Trivia Night*!

*Would not recommend cramming for trivia.

Watch anime because you enjoy it, not to be good at trivia. Also, hate to tell you this... but they're probably studying. You probably should too, tbh.

When is it? Next Friday, so y'all can be, well, pretty close to having done all of your assignments at least. We made it Week 12 so you'd have finished all your assignments by the time trivia rolled around, not because there weren't any other free weeks ever made available or anything.... b-b-baka...

Where: The Lounge, Union House
When: 6 pm to 9 pm
Date: Friday October 21

We'll also be doing donburi orders from Ramen Ya; please fill in the form here by 11:59 pm on Thursday October 20 to place your order.

If at some point during the night you realize that you're running late and don't want your dinner auctioned off, please send us an email at enquiries@amc.moe. At the same time, if you do need to cancel an order, please let us know in the same way.

Discussion Event II

Posted by Mokogari to the Club blog
5:45PM Sunday, 2 October 2016

We hope you enjoyed your break away from all of those lectures and classes! Although you may be groaning as you roll out of bed at time earlier than noon, as you curse daylight savings which you haven't quite gotten used to yet, we're sure to bring a smile back with our upcoming discussion event! Come and share the adventures you got up over the break, or the results of those post-midnight anime and manga marathons you got up to!

Or you could just come to pick on the president. Whoever he is.

Date: 6th of October (this Thursday!)
Location: Joe Napolitano B, Union House
Time: 2 - 5 pm

No need to stay for the entire event duration - it's very casual, so please feel free to drop in and out over the course of the event! And of course, we'll have our usual complementary pocky and drink waiting for you.

Midsem Marathon Semester 2 2016

Posted by Usagi to the Club blog
12:05PM Friday, 23 September 2016

Hey guys!
The mid-semester break is right around the corner, which can only mean one thing. And no, we don't mean studying for assessments (psh! who does that).

We at AMC are of course, talking about our mid-semester marathon! So push those books aside and come watch some anime. We even booked a kickass venue that projects videos in full 1080 HD widescreen. It'll be like the movies. But free! Even better, it also comes with a complementary pocky and drink. It's basically highway robbery! 

The event starts on Wednesday the 28th from 9am all the way to 5pm, and you can come and go as you please. Now for the details below:

When: Wednesday September 28th 
Where: MSD-B120 - Singapore Theatre
What time: 9am-5pm

Also, as a side note, please vote on the stickied poll on our AMC facebook page concerning our Trivia Night for this semester. We've had a lot of unforseen delays due to booking clashes with UMSU, and while we are still eager to host the Trivia Night, we'd like to know what time would be best for you.

Thanks~!

Film Night II - Girls und Panzer der Film

Posted by Usagi to the Club blog
11:17PM Thursday, 25 August 2016

Hi everyone!

We hope the semester is going great for you so far. That said, whether you’re busy with assignments and could use a break, or... less so, we’ve got our second movie night next week! Come along and check it out!

The movie we’ll be showing is the movie Girls und Panzer der Film. This is an absolute must see if you’ve seen or have been watching the series. That said, the film doesn’t really rely on anything from the series, so you can come along whether you’ve seen the original series or not. The film is a fun and explosive piece of theatre that even non-fans of anime would find themselves enjoying. It won both the 2015 Sanctuary Award from the 25th Japanese Movie Critics Awards and the Best Dramatic Presentation Award from the 47th Seiun Awards, and it really deserves them. We’ve been planning to screen this film since about February, and screened the original series on Fridays to complement it, so hopefully that makes it clear how worth watching this movie is. So come along, you won’t regret it.

Date: Thursday, 1st September 2016
Location: Old Geology-B25 (Theatre 2)
Time: We’ll screen an OVA at 6pm and start the movie at 6:30pm

As usual, this is an open event, so bring your friends, your enemies and everyone in-between! Plus, every attendee gets one free Pocky and drink!

Hope to see you there!
Your AMC Committee

Location: Union House 2nd Floor - Graham Cornish B 
Time: 2-5pm

Posted by Giffo to the Club blog
10:00PM Thursday, 4 August 2016

We've been a little quiet after Welcome Back, but now you've settled into your studies for a while, you've earned a break. As such... it's time for a movie night. 

The movie we'll be seeing is Only Yesterday.  It's one of the underseen and underrated gems of the Studio Ghibli collection - a lovely tale of childhood reflections, romance, and finding where you belong. Come and watch with us.

Date: Thursday August 11
Location: Old Geology-B25 (Theatre 2)
Time: Screening an OVA called Kurage no Shokudou from 6 pm; movie itself starts at 6:30.

As per usual, this is an open event - bring your friends, your enemies (...and sit on opposite sides of the theatre, I suppose), and everyone in-between. Plus, each attendee gets one free Pocky and drink.

One more thing. Those of you who've ordered Animaga tickets, good news - they're now available for collection! Come into screenings or events for the next week to pay for and collect your tickets. If you don't think you can make any of these events, shoot us an email at enquiries@amc.moe and we'll see what we can do.

Welcome (Back) Party

Posted by Mokogari to the Club blog
8:00PM Saturday, 23 July 2016

Hey AMC!

To all the new members who joined us on Thursday, welcome! We hope you enjoy your time here with us at the Anime and Mange Club (AMC for short)! We look forward to seeing you all at various club events!

Speaking of which, it’s time for us to announce our first event of the academic semester - our semesterly Welcome (Back) Party! This is a fun social event, and is a great chance to meet other members in the club, chat about anime and manga, and have fun!

Furthermore, this event is open to everyone, both members and non-members, so feel free to come along and invite your friends too!

Date: Friday, 29th July
Time: 6 - 9 pm
Location: The Lounge, Union House (the room with all of those comfortable couches and microwaves on the ground floor of the Union House)
Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1632860386938913/

A free box of Pocky and can of soft drink will be provided to all members who attend.

In terms of dinner options, donburis, bentos and gyoza can be ordered from our club sponsor, Ramen Ya, which will be delivered to the event - no need to pick it up. Club members will also receive a $4 discount on their order too!

If you’d like to make an order, please fill out the order form on our website by Thursday the 28th, 11:59 pm.

For the new members who have joined us, here is a rundown on some of the things we do, and how to keep up to date with the latest news and events!

Firstly, we run screenings of anime throughout the semester! Generally we generally screen approximately two episodes of an anime series every week in a fixed 1 hour block, until we’ve finished screening the show. This means that by the end of the semester, we’ll have screened two 12 - 13 episode series, or a single 24 - 26 episode show.

This semester is no different, and we have 6 different blocks this semester. That is, we’ll be screening 6 different shows a week! Starting Monday, we’ll be screening Gankutsuou, Princess Tutu, Accel World, Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, Gatchaman Crowds and Girls und Panzer. For more information about screening times, locations, and a show description, please see our website. If any of these screenings interest you, please feel free to come along!

That aside, in terms of keeping updated on our events and other club details, there are several avenues that we use. The first is, of course, via emails which are sent out to our members. These are also mirrored on our website here, just like this post!

Furthermore, we also have a very active Facebook page. This is one of the best ways to not only be kept posted on what's going on with the club, but to talk and discuss whatever takes your fancy with other members. We welcome all of you to join us!

For real-time conversation, we also have an active Skype chat used by many of our members! It's a very friendly and social chat! Please feel free to join in if you're interested. It does require Skype to be installed to use it though, which can be installed painlessly if you don't have it already from here.

That’s it from us for now! We look forward to seeing you all around the place, and we hope you can make it to the Welcome (Back) Party!

2016 Annual General Meeting

Posted by Mokogari to the Club blog
4:00PM Tuesday, 15 March 2016

We'll be having an AGM next week on Tuesday instead of our Kekkai Sensen screening (that is, 12:00at Alan Gilbert Theatre 1, Tuesday 22nd March 2016. We won't start until 12:05, but feel free to get there a little early)!

First things first, yes, there will certainly be FREE PIZZA!

What's an AGM you ask?
The AGM is our Annual General Meeting, it's where members decide on all matters of the running of the club! Such as adding an amendment to the constitution or electing all the new members for the next year!

What's this, Elections?
Yep, at the AGM we will be electing four people to the new executive committee and five people to the general committee. These positions are open to anyone (except the Returning Officer) so feel free to run if you'd like!

What are the positions?
Look at the constitution for what exactly is involved, but here's a general overview:

The executive committee has 4 positions:
President - The president of the club, generally acts as “the face” of the club and makes sure the club is running as it should. Exactly how much work is involved in this role (and others!) varies from committee to committee.
Vice-President - Covers the president's role if they're unavailable.
Secretary - Handles minute taking and other administrative details.
Treasurer - Handles finances of the club. The treasurer's work is to handle the finances of the club, keeping track of finances and presenting reports to club members at Annual General Meetings.

The general committee has 5 positions:
Librarian - Handles the maintenance and updating of the library that the club keeps as well as the website for members to visit. The library has been carefully maintained for quite a few years by the librarian currently in charge, who will help out with advice to any new members taking the role.
Webmaster - Handles the maintenance and updating of the website.
Publications Officer - Handles events and flyers, creating material for letting members know what we're up to.
Art Director - Handles art for club proceedings, this is most important to procure art for membership cards, but any additional art is also usually appreciated.
Liaison Officer - Handles communication with sponsors, sometimes negotiating new sponsors.

All positions are up for grabs so feel free to run!

Can you give a speech?
Of course! In fact, you should! When running for a position, you'll be permitted to make a short speech (2 minutes for an executive committee position, 1 minute for a general committee position) about who you are, and why you should be elected. The speech can contain anything you like, but there's no need to be too formal!

How do nominations work?
There are two main types of nominations: regular nominations and proxy nominations. For the former, the Returning Officer will ask attendees for any nominations. When this happens, any person may nominate any person (including themselves), which must be seconded by another person other than the nominee. If the nominated person chooses to accept this nomination, then they are nominated for that position. Also, you are certainly allowed to be nominated, and run, for multiple positions. But what if you can’t make it to the meeting itself? Well then read on to the following question...

Can you still run if you can't make it?
Yep, contact the Returning Officer, Colin, at president@amc.moe with your speech and name and details (email and phone number you prefer to be contacted on, student number, course, etc.), and you’ll be nominated in proxy. Colin will read out your speech at the meeting in your stead. You may alternatively send an audio or video file or something along those lines, keeping in mind the maximum speech durations. If you do submit such a file, it is recommended that you provide a transcript in the case of technical difficulties.

What's that, you're worried Colin will ignore your proxy nomination?
Don't worry, as Colin is the Returning Officer, he can't run for any positions and will be handling the voting, so nothing should go wrong. You will need to make sure to get your nomination in before the meeting begins though, as Colin will be busy with the AGM and we can't guarantee your nomination won't come in after voting has finished.

Do you have to send Colin an email if you'll actually be there?
Nope, non-proxy nominations happen in the meeting itself, where self-nominations can be made and nominations from others can be declined or accepted by the person themself.

Do you need to be a student?
You can run for Executive Committee positions only if you're a current University of Melbourne student, but if you aren't, you can still run for General Committee positions. It’s only Executive Committee positions that are off the table in this case.

What's that, amendments to the constitution?
This AGM, we've got a new amendment for you! It's "compulsory" (required by Clubs & Societies) so please vote for it!
The addition of Clause 4.9 Grievances
"4.9 Grievances
Any grievance that arises between a club and UMSU, a club member and another club member, or a club member and another University of Melbourne student is subject to the grievance procedure outlined in the UMSU Clubs & Societies Regulations. If the parties subject to a grievance are unable to meet and discuss the grievance and determine a resolution within 21 academic days, the UMSU Clubs & Societies Officer/s or their nominated representative shall appoint a mediator to facilitate mediation. Parties subject to mediation will have certain rights as members of the club suspended until mediation is completed.  
"

Why should you vote for it?
It is not technically necessary for you to vote for a "compulsory" amendment, however, these come from UMSU which we're affiliated with, voting down this amendment would lead to disaffiliation, which would likely lose us rights to rooms, grounds, insurance and funding and basically we'd have to limit ourselves to perhaps one or two events per year to balance the books. Also, I really don't think anyone should have any issues with the amendment.

What else is on?
The President's and Treasurer's reports will be presented covering the club’s state over the past year, and also we'll be having (free) pizza at the AGM, so feel free to grab some slices! Just don’t forget to sign the attendance sheet :)

What if you're not a member?
You can sign up for the club at the AGM and participate, no dramas.

What's that, that was too long and you didn't read it?
Free Pizza
Returning Officer is Colin (contact him at president@amc.moe)
There's a new amendment
Elections
Meeting opens at Tuesday 22th March 2016, Alan Gilbert Theatre 1, 12:05

2016 Semester 1 Screenings

Posted by Mokogari to the Club blog
9:30PM Monday, 29 February 2016

We're pleased to announce the first of our screenings for this semester! Apologies once again for the delay!

For those who don't know how our screening events work, the committee selects a collection of anime series to be screened using the huge projector screens courtesy of the university - because why else were lecture theatres installed with them? At a fixed time, every non-break week, we generally screen ~2 episodes, such that by the end of the semester we'll have seen either a ~24 episode-long series, or two ~12 episode-long series.

We watch them together as a group, and it can be pretty fun seeing other people's reactions to dramatic moments of the show. We as a committee also often try to provide a variety of different shows and genres so it can be a very good chance to see something new that you wouldn't otherwise have watched!

Now without further ado, the screenings for the beginning of this semester are:

Tuesdays (stating TOMORROW):
Kekkai Sensen (12 - 1 pm at Theatre 1, Alan Gilbert)
SHIROBAKO (1 - 2 pm at Theatre 1, Alan Gilbert)

Wednesdays:
Saki (1 - 2 pm at Medley Theatre, Redmond Barry)

Thursdays:
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (1 - 2 pm at Agar Theatre, Biosciences 4)

Fridays:
Denpa Onna to Seishuun Otoko (1 - 2 pm at C2 Theatre, Engineering Block C)

Mondays:
Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso (1 - 2 pm at Theatre A, Old Arts)

For descriptions of the show, what episodes we're screening at the next screening, a campus map annotated with the screening locations, and other screening information please see our website's screening page at:

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Welcome to AMC for 2016

Posted by Mokogari to the Club blog
1:00PM Sunday, 28 February 2016

A huge welcome to all the members, both new and returning who have joined us for the coming year! We were glad to see your enthusiastic faces at the stall, and we hope you enjoy your time with the Anime and Manga Club (AMC for short)!

Of course, it wouldn't be a university club without events! This coming Friday is our semesterly "Welcome (Back) Party". This is a fun social event and is a great chance to meet people who share similar interests to you, and to make new friends!

Furthermore, this event is not just restricted to members, and anybody is welcome to join us! So please feel free to bring along anyone who you think might be interested!

Date: Friday 4th March
Time: 6 pm - 9 pm
Location: The Lounge, Union House (the room with all of those comfortable couches and microwaves on the ground floor of the Union House)
Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/665495123589949/

A free box of Pocky and a can of soft drink will be available for all members who attend.

In addition, this semester we're lucky enough to have a special guest - Hoka no Tea Time (HTT). HTT is an anime song cover band that has performed at various events, including at the conventions Animaga and Armageddon! They've prepared a great set list (including songs from FMA, Digimon and K-On!) so don't miss out!

In terms of dinner, delicious donburis, bentos and gyoza will be available to be ordered for the night from our sponsors at Ramen Ya, which will be delivered to the event. Members will receive a $4 discount from their order as well.

If you'd like to make an order, please just fill out the form at our website:

http://amc.moe/page/2016-sem1-welcome

Many of our returning members will be aware that our club usually runs weekly screenings throughout the semester, by taking advantage of the university's projectors and huge screens. We usually screen approximately two episodes a week so that by the end of the semester we will usually have watched a single 26 episode show, or two 13 episode shows. They are a good opportunity to have fun watching shows with fellow members, and also to be exposed to a variety of really good shows from a range of genres that you might not have otherwise considered.

Unfortunately, room bookings have yet to come through this semester, and we have yet to receive them. However, we will let you all know as soon as they do!

That aside, in terms of keeping updated on our events and other club details, there are several avenues that we use. The first is, of course, via emails which are sent out to our members. We also do mirror them on our website here.

Furthermore, we also have a very active Facebook page:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/amcunimelb/

This is probably one of the best ways to not only be kept posted on what's going on with the club, but to talk and discuss whatever takes your fancy with other members. We welcome all of you to join us!

For real-time conversation, we also have an active Skype chat used by many of our members:

http://tinyurl.com/amcskype

It's a very friendly and social chat! Please feel free to join in if you're interested. It does require Skype to be installed to use it though, which can be installed painlessly if you don't have it already from the following link:

http://www.skype.com/

We hope you all enjoy yourselves with your time at AMC, and we can't wait to see you at our events!

Movie Night - The iDOLM@STER Movie: Kagayaki no Mukougawa e

Posted by Mokogari to the Club blog
7:00AM Thursday, 15 October 2015

What better way to end a semester than with one of the best idol franchises out there!

Following on from the escapades of 765 Productions we showed you in Semester 1, AMC’s final movie night of the year will be The iDOLM@STER Movie: Kagayaki no Mukougawa e!

This is the latest and perhaps final anime entry of the main cast from the franchise, and it’s definitely worth a watch. Telling a story of overcoming hardships to do what you love, it’s a brightly coloured, vibrant piece of dazzling proportions with a hearty helping of music both old and new. Haven’t seen the The iDOLM@STER anime series? Don’t worry, the movie is a pretty self-contained story and introduces the characters at the start, so as long as you enjoy music, dance and interesting characters, come along and give it a shot. Whether you’re in it for the unique and diverse cast of characters, the energetic music or the drama of it all, it’s sure to be an enjoyable experience for all. Some even regard it as a veritable M@STERPIECE!

And, of course the usual Pocky and drink will be provided.

Date: 22nd of October
Time: 6:15 - 8:30
Venue: Old Arts Theatre C

We hope you can m@ke it!

Movie Night + New Friday Screening

Posted by Mokogari to the Club blog
7:00AM Monday, 14 September 2015

Thanks to all of you who participated in our Manga Discussion Event and the Ramen Eating Competition! We hope you all had a lot of fun, and weren't too sick from eating too much ramen.

Like in last week, there's a few new updates this week too! 

First of all, is our next movie night of the semester, Stranger: Mukou Hadan (Sword of the Stranger). The movie is set during the Sengoku Era, and the story follows a nameless ronin who saves a young orphan boy, befriends a dog, is quite good with a sword and isn't afraid of action. Also involves a foreigner looking for gud fights. Yes, "gud".

With beautiful animation and some excellent action scenes, this is one movie that can only be described as "Baller".

Date: Wednesday 16th September
Time: 6:30 to 9:30pm
Location: Old Geology-B25 (Theatre 2)

Of course, as always, a free box of Pocky and a drink will be provided!

Lastly, with the conclusion of our Friday Kamichu! screening, we're now starting a new show, and will be screening it until the end of the semester on Fridays 1 - 2 pm. The show to be screened is called selector infected WIXOSS, and more details about the show, including a show description can be found, as always, on our website. Please disregard the tags. This is a very light-hearted comedy. Honest (maybe).

In that vein, we have a number of upcoming events and activities that will be sure to draw your interest! Firstly, of course, is the semesterly "Welcome (Back) Party"!

2015 Semester 1 - End of Exams Marathon

Posted by Mokogari to the Club blog
11:26PM Wednesday, 24 June 2015

Hey everyone!

Did y'all survive exams? Don't actually answer that.

But they're (mostly) over now, so time to look forward to the future! And events! Maybe a marathon!

To celebrate the the end of exams, we're holding a marathon of sorts. Standard affair, show up, sign a sheet, receive a Pocky and a drink and then proceed to enjoy some quality* Anime. You might even learn a thing or two and get good at trivia!

It might be a bit different this time around though, as we're trying out a new location: The Melbourne School of Design basement! That's the new building with all the latest tech, so it should be pretty fun. Look for us in MSD-B120, otherwise known as the "Singapore Theatre".

So if you want to unwind and hang out with your pals at the AMC, come on down on and have a blast.

Date: Tuesday 30th June
Time: 9am-5pm
Location: MSD-B120 (Singapore Theatre)

Hope to see you there!

Manga Discussion Event 3 + Trivia Night Update

Posted by Mokogari to the Club blog
12:38AM Thursday, 7 May 2015

Hi AMC,

Want to chat about all things manga? Catch up with all the friends you'll make on Trivia Night? Both? ...Neither? Well then, come join us for an afternoon of discussion and Pocky eating (yes, members get a free box of Pocky and a drink as always). Bring along manga to talk about if you like!

Date: Tuesday 12th May
Time: 2pm to 5pm
Location: Joe Napolitano A, Union House 2nd Floor

Unfortunately, the menu that we had for Trivia Night donburis was slightly out of date. As a consequence, some donburis have been replaced with bentos, and some items have had their price slightly increased.

For those who have already made an order, we will only charge you the price that we advertised at, but your donburi order may have been changed to a bento.

If anyone has any questions regarding the changes, or you would like to adjust your order, please send an email to web@amc.moe.

For those who have not made an order, and would like to do so, please do so at the following:

http://amc.moe/page/2015-sem1-trivia/

Orders close at 11:59 pm on Thursday.

Apologies for the confusion,

Semester 1 Mid Semester Break Marathon - 09/04

12:42PM Thursday, 2 April 2015

Hello everyone!

We're sure you're all looking forward to the mid-semester break, and accordingly, we will be having a marathon to celebrate! The committee this year is made of mostly new faces, ending the tyrannical* rule of past leaders and opening the club to the fresh views of the new set of veteran watchers. Yep, that means hours and hours of fantastic** anime to take your mind off the trials and tribulations of the last few weeks. Can't stay all day because of the 1000-7 lectures you already need to catch up on? That's fine, just drop in for an episode or two and meet the shiny new committee. 

The theme for this marathon is ‘New Committee’s Favourites’, so here's your chance to laugh/cry/applaud/facepalm at our tastes. It'll be fun. Try to guess who picked what!

Date: Thursday 9th April

Time:  9am - 5pm

Location: Babel 106 (Middle Theatre)

Oh yes, there will also be the usual free Pocky and drink. See you there!

2015 Annual General Meeting

Posted by Arcorann to the Club blog
6:38PM Sunday, 15 March 2015

Yep, it's that time already. The Anime and Manga Club will be holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM) in a few weeks and it's a great chance for those who want to find out how we operate, and have a say on how we will run in the future.

The main activity is deciding who gets to be on the 2014-2015 committee. More importantly, there will be FREE pizza and drinks. Let me repeat for emphasis. Free. Food.

...guess I'll see you there.

Date: Tuesday March 24

Time: 12:45pm till 2:00pm

Place: Latham Theatre, Redmond Barry (the Tuesday screening room)

Every current club member is eligible for a general committee position, but Exec positions are only for students of the University. Every committee position will be vacant and need to be filled at the AGM and as such, it is fair game to anyone who wants to have a go and help out with running the club. The positions are listed below:

Executive Committee:

  • President
  • Vice President
  • Treasurer
  • Secretary

General Committee:

  • Librarian
  • Publications
  • Art Director
  • Liaison Officer
  • Web Master

Nominations for all these positions will be open at the AGM but should you be unable to attend and still want to nominate yourself for any of these positions, please email president@3wanime.com with your name, contact details, and any speech that you want read at the AGM. If you wish to know more about the roles of any of the above positions, again don't hesitate to email the President on the above email address.

Also linked below are two very important documents. These outline crucial information about the AGM and the club so we strongly encourage everyone who is planning to attend to read them. These documents are:

Agenda - A description of what will happen during the AGM, topics that will be discussed and how the meeting will be structured.

Current Constitution - The pillars upon which this club stands on; I suggest reading it (or not).

The Treasurer's Report will be distributed at the meeting, and details all the financial dealings of the club since the last AGM.

Melodrama aside, we are finally going to make the change from Weekly Watchers of Wonderful Anime to Anime & Manga Club and since we can't just change the name of the group (Thanks Zuckerberg) this means we are going to have to move groups entirely. As of this post we'll be stopping people from posting on the old group but - worry not! - we won't be deleting the old group.

Animaga Tickets

Posted by Watari to the Club blog
5:27PM Saturday, 13 September 2014

.....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

Posted by Watari to the Club blog
9:11PM Sunday, 7 September 2014

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!

Posted by Giffo to the Club blog
10:20PM Friday, 29 August 2014

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 w.lim@union.unimelb.edu.au), and are also running a comic strip-making competition (check this Facebook post or email Kenny J. Chen at kennyjc94@gmail.com) to promote it.

Week 6 Movie Night - 05/09

Posted by Watari to the Club blog
9:52PM Friday, 29 August 2014

Week 5 down and we officially enter mid-semester: now is an excellent time for our next movie night!

For Movie Night, we're going to be holding a double feature with 5 Centimeters per Second (http://anidb.net/a4568) followed by The Cat Returns (http://anidb.net/a679).

A love child of Makoto Shinkai, 5 Centimetres per Second is a story about a boy and a girl.  But it's no ordinary romance - this is a story of patient hope and gentle suffering; of joyous reunion and love rend asunder; of a tale at once melancholic, yet optimistic; mournful, yet without despair.  A moving portrayal of the deepest human bond nurtured by adversity, this one's a must-see for anime and romance enthusiasts alike.

The Cat Returns, Studio Ghibli's spiritual successor to the stunning Whisper of the Heart we screened last semester (don't worry, no past knowledge required for full enjoyment of this one), is the story of a girl who ends up trapped in the magical world of cats.  Despite being the closest thing to a Ghibli sequel there is, it is well-able to stand amid the pantheon of quality Ghibli movies.

Date: Friday the 5th of September

Time: Start around 6:30 PM, should finish both flicks by around 9:00 PM

Where: Latham Theatre, Redmond Barry

We'll likely hold a quick break inbetween the two movies around 7:30-7:45 for about five minutes - utilise it for toilet breaks or a witty wisecrack or two. Since the interval probably won't be sufficient to go out to grab something to eat and then return in time for the next feature, we recommend getting something before the event or to bring something along for the event itself!

 

PS: There may be a chance that the room we booked doesn't have anyone from 5:30 PM and should that be the case we'll likely be hanging around there - feel free to join us! (It'd probably be a good time to get some dinner too!)

Week 5 Anime and Manga Discussion Event - 27/08

Posted by Watari to the Club blog
8:58PM Friday, 22 August 2014

Mid-sems are on the horizon so before we all get overwhelmed by them, as well as other equally important assessments, now would be a good time for another Anime and Manga Discussion Event.

More an excuse to hang out and talk about things we've watched and/or read as well as have a Free Pocky And DrinkTM. If we feel like it we may even come up with a topic to butt heads over.

Date: Wednesday the 27th of August

When: 2:15 pm - 5:15 pm

Where: Union House Level 2, Joe Napolitano A

As always feel free to come in whenever you're free during that particular time - and hey! Would you look at that? It's timed conveniently right after the screening! What a lucky coincidence!

Future Events

Posted by Giffo to the Club blog
9:27PM Saturday, 2 August 2014

Week 2 is coming, and everyone knows that's the week you actually have to start studying (no, I'm not going to say that about every week.  Shh).  And that means it's time for... us to announce more events?  Well... close enough.

Event 1: Our first Manga and Anime Discussion event of the semester.  It's basically just another chance for our members to mingle, but still worth it.

What: Manga and Anime Discussion

When: Thursday August 7, 2:15pm

Where: Mary Cooke B, Union House Second Floor

Second, a few people have expressed interest in seeing a movie (yes, an anime movie) called Patema Inverted during the Melbourne International Film Festival.  Patema Inverted is a movie that's received a lot of buzz, the director is a relatively young new talent, and appears to be a good movie.  Long story short, some of us are going to see it.  This won't be a club-funded or official event; it's just an outing where we go to the cinema and see a movie.

What: Patema Inverted at the Melbourne International Film Festival

When: Saturday August 16, 1:00pm meetup for the 1:30pm session

Where: Hoyts Melbourne Central (meet outside the ticket booth)

That's enough for now,

End of Exams Marathon - 02/07

Posted by Watari to the Club blog
8:33PM Wednesday, 25 June 2014

Hello Members!

With the exam period finally coming to an end, we figured the best possible way to celebrate, that was befitting of our club, was to have a marathon! Of course, we aren't just going to show any old anime. The shows that will be screened will be based on the questions asked during our Semester 1 Trivia Night. So if there was a question you were confused about or a show you had never heard of before, you should definitely come along to learn some new facts about already watched shows, or get hooked onto a series you have yet to watch.

 

Date:  Wednesday, 2nd of July

Time: 9am - 5pm

Location: Chisholm Theatrette, Level 3, Babel Building

 

We aren't asking you to come to the whole day, just pop in when you can and enjoy whatever we have decided to show at the time.

 

Hope to see you there,

Your AMC Committee

Week 10 Movie Night - 15/5

Posted by Watari to the Club blog
7:10PM Sunday, 11 May 2014

Hello fellow anime lovers!

If you weren't there, trivia night was an event not to be missed, with an epic tie breaker to conclude the night and much fun had by all. It's now getting late in the university semester and with exams around the corner, what better way to destress before SwotVac than by watching some great Anime!

We will be showing Whisper of the Heart, a classic Studio Ghibli film, so if you enjoyed their recent offerings of 'From Up On Poppy Hill' and 'The Wind Rises', this is right up your alley. It's also a great opportunity to ease your friends into the world of anime with an accessible film for the uninitiated. Furthermore, the movie won't be starting until 6:30 pm, so feel free to grab some dinner beforehand or come early for the pre-movie, OVA screenings at 5:30 pm.

Date: Thursday the 15th of May

OVA Start Time: 5:30 pm

Movie Start Time: 6:30 pm

Venue: Physics Building-Hercus Theatre

For this event, there will be a free Pretz or drink for those that come along, so bring some friends for a great night. Membership signups will be available on the night. Look forward to seeing you there, Your WWWA Committee

2014 Annual General Meeting and Tuesday Room Change

Posted by Perd to the Club blog
10:36PM Monday, 31 March 2014

Before we get to the exciting bit of this communication, we need to inform you all that the Tuesday lunchtime screening room has changed yet again. The new room (and the room for the rest of the semester) will be Old Metallurgy Building - Room 202. Apologies for all the room changes, we are just as annoyed by them as you. This will hopefully be the absolute last change for the semester. 

 

Now, it's that time of the year again when its out with the old and in with the new. Weekly Watchers of Wonderful Anime will be holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM) in a few weeks and its a great chance for those who want to find out how we operate, and have a say on how we will run in the future.

In particular, at this AGM we will be voting on whether to change our club name from "The Weekly Watchers of Wonderful Anime" to  "The Anime and Manga Club". Note that this is a proposed change - we will be rigorously discussing the pros and cons at the meeting. If you want to take part in this discussion and make your voice heard make sure you are there! Not only that, we also have to decide who gets to be on the 2014-2015 committee. If that's not enough, there will be FREE pizza and drinks. Free food. What more can you ask for?

 

Date: Friday the 11th of April

Time: 12:45pm till 2:00pm

Place: Babel Building - Chisholm Theatrette (the Friday screening room)

 

Every current club member is eligible for a general committee position, but Exec positions are only for students of the University. Every committee position will be vacant and need to be filled at the AGM and as such, it is fair game to anyone who wants to have a go and help out with running the club. The positions are listed below:

Executive Committee:

-President

-Vice President

-Treasurer

-Secretary

General Committee:

-Librarian

-Publications

-Art Director

-Liaison Officer

-Web Master

Nominations for all these positions will be open at the AGM but should you be unable to attend and still want to nominate yourself for any of these positions, please email president@3wanime.com with your name, contact details, and any speech that you want read at the AGM. If you wish to know more about the roles of any of the above positions, again don't hesitate to email the President on the above email address. 

Also linked below are several very important documents. These outline crucial information about the AGM and the club so we strongly encourage everyone who is planning to attend to read them. These documents are:

Agenda - A description of what will happen during the AGM, topics that will be discussed and how the meeting will be structured.

Current Constitution - The pillars upon which this club stands on, and there are several amendments to be considered this year. Namely, the name change to "The Anime and Manga Club".

Proposed Constitution - The fine details of the change (literally just changing article 1.1 and the title of the document).

The Financial Report will be distributed at the meeting, and details all the financial dealings of the club since the last AGM.

Manga and Anime Discussion Event - 3/4

Posted by Perd to the Club blog
9:38PM Friday, 28 March 2014

Your committee is proud to present a new and improved Manga and Anime Discussion Event, as we expand our horizons from the realm of static pictures of manga to the world of anime. Although most of the focus of the event will still be on manga as per usual, we realised that inevitably anime would come into the equation and discussion and therefore we have decided to include it in the name of the event. We will be complementing the event with some physical copies of manga from Rowden White Library, but as always encourage you to bring your own to share and show the others at the event.

Date: Thursday 3rd of April

Time: 2:00pm - 4:00pm

Location: Union House Second Floor - Joe Napolitano A

Like always, there will be pocky and drinks, so why not come along and bring a few friends while you snack and explore the intricacies of manga and anime. If you haven't come to many events yet this semester, this is a great one to meet some members and make friends!

Not only that, we are also having an upcoming manga discussion event during the first week. This is a great event to meet with other fellow manga readers and lovers and unleash your inner passion. Although we will supplement the event with manga from Rowden White Library, we strongly encourage you to bring along any copies that you might own and feel like sharing.

Time: 2:00pm - 4:00pm

Time: 5:15pm till around 9pm
Location: Union House Lounge

In addition to the usual Pocky and drinks made available, this is one of the few chances where members can enjoy takeaway dinner from Ramen Ya, with discounted bentos on offer ($5 off for members!). To get your hands on these, make sure you fill out this form, however we also strongly encourage all members who are attending the event to RSVP via the form so we could gather a rough idea as to how many are attending, even if you aren't ordering a bento. Orders are open till Thursday 26th of September but don't leave it to the last minute. 

As with all of our events, Trivia Night is open and welcome to all your friends that you can invite. Whether you have just started watching anime or if anime is your life, soul and body, we have got questions for you all. We advise you to grab a partner beforehand as to make the grouping process on the night easier but fear not if you can't find one, we will be pairing those in a similar situation with you. This event is a great chance to meet other members of the club, make new friends and rivals, potentially win some pretty awesome prizes, and generally have a great time. For, in Barney Stinson's words, Trivia Night is going to be legen — wait for it... I hope you're not lactose intolerant — dary.

Hope to see you there~

After the gallery closes at 5pm, we will wander over to our sponsors at Ramen Ya, for a dinner celebrating the end of semester. Come along for some good food, good conversation and some good relaxation before exams.
