Waaah, semester is finally over~ Congratulations to everyone on surviving yet another stress-filled time. This does sadly mean the end of weekly events until next year starts T_T
Good luck to those of you with exams, and those of you without, count yourselves lucky ^_^
Time to binge on everything we haven’t been able to watch over the semester! I’ve had Noragami on my watchlist for about 8 months now and I finally have a chance~ Is there anything you’ve been busting to watch for ages?

Have we all seen Shelter, the 6-minute short film from A-1 Pictures? I’ll admit, I’m not the hugest fan of the song, but the animation is stunning and the message is quite touching. Really clever construction from Peter Robinson! I hope y’all enjoy it as much as I did~

The Pokemon Sun and Moon demos have been released for the Australian Nintendo eShop now – if you complete the demo by the release date, you get to carry over a special Greninja into the actual game, so if you’re a big Greninja fan it’s definitely worth it! And of course, data miners have already extracted every last drop of information from this little packet and have released it publicly, so here we have a whole bunch of spoilery stuff – like sprites for the final forms of the starters, and a couple of other things I won’t say!

In related news, Nintendo has just announced the Nintendo Switch~ We already know a fair bit about it
– basically, it’s the fusion of the WiiU with the DS line. You can play the same titles at home or on the run (hopefully)! It looks pricey and a little gimmicky though, so my opinion is split :| What do you guys think?

Even though our weeklies are no longer running, there are whole heap of holiday events coming up to keep you guys entertained – check out the list below!

WHEN: Friday 18th November, 4-10pm
WHERE: CB07.03.025

WHEN: Saturday 19th November 3:30 pm

WHERE: Event Cinemas, George Street
WHAT: Now, Chihayafuru comes in two parts, so it’s a whole marathon! This ticket also costs $15 for concession or $18 for adults, and RSVPs are still essential – so sign up now!

WHERE: Event Cinemas, George Street
WHAT: JFF is in town, and we’re heading to see Assassination Classroom –Graduation-. A live action adaptation of a modern classic! Tickets are $15 for concession or $18 for adults, and RSVPs are essential – check the event for the signup sheet!

Hello anime friends! Hope everyone’s had a restful break and ready for the new semester. Now to get to the anime airing this season, I’ve enjoyed pretty much everything I’ve come across so far, particularly one called 91 Days! Let us know which one you liked the most :D

Fan of HoneyWorks‘ music? Some great news! A movie based off of their songs is being made and is releasing this December, titled Suki Ni Naru Sono Shunkan Wo (I wait for the moment you love me). This is the second film inspired by HoneyWorks‘ piece, the first being Zutto Mae kara Suki Deshita (I want to let you know that I love you).

If you’re one of the millions who play Pokemon Go, you should know about your team leaders, who were announced last Sunday at Comic-con by Niantic (some hilarious fan-art also transpired after). They also gave answers to many questions about the game (yes they know about the mountain of bugs) and gave hints to new features in upcoming updates such as breeding and improving gyms.

Another big reveal at Comic-con is Tsutomu Nihei’s manga BLAME! will be getting a film adaptation which will stream on Netflix Originals in 2017. A teaser trailer was also released last Saturday which you can see here! Despite being completely CG, I reckon it looks stunning! Would love to hear what you guys think!
