Episode 09 – Join the Wolf Pack

July 30, 2017, by , posted in Events

Hey guys!!!

Welcome to semester 2, glad you all survived (for now…heh). This sem is going to be a busy one, but first thing’s first; WELCOME THE NEWBIES! And how will we welcome them you ask? Well, by killing them off one by one in a brutal game called Werewolf. If you haven’t played this game before, don’t worry, it’s super fun and can involve up to 75 people so let’s attempt the biggest game we’ve ever had at this event >:)

Killing villagers not your thing? Don’t worry, we will still have lots of other games and anime screenings to keep everyone entertained. Oh, and there will be food. Free food.

When: 5th August 12pm onwards
Where: UTS (TBA)
Why: EVERYONE MUST JOIN THE WOLF PACK.
Cost: FREE~ (For members)

Oh no, the semester break is nearly over~ why did I do nothing I said I would do? I haven’t even watched the all the anime I wanted to T_T Well, anyway, at least I have fun subjects this semester, so I mightn’t hate my life the whole time. Just most of it. With that said, let’s get to the fun stuff!

A big thank you to everyone that came on camp~ we’re slowly working through all the photos and they’ll be up super soon~

Keijo is real now (but only in Portugal). I have nothing more I can say on this topic. It’s pretty dorky, but I mean hey. Keijo was dorky.

Legendary raids are finally a thing in Pokémon Go! A team of as many as 20 people can gather at a gym location and challenge either a Lugia or an Articuno. But, in true Pokémon Go style, it’s buggy af. Aside from some raid locations that have poor network access, incredibly overpowered Lugias for casual players, flawed catch rate balancing and difficulties functioning in rural areas with low population density, there’s just plumb not enough people playing any more to manage raids this way anymore. To cap it off, Lugias and Articunos have a bad habit of running away. But some of this is actually an interesting question – a lot of people thought Pokémon Go would just be Pokémon on a smartphone, but it’s really not. I mean, there’s only meant to be one Lugia and one Articuno in all the world, according to lore, so it makes sense they should be very difficult to catch. But that’s never how Pokémon has been before. It’s been independent, and catching legendaries was a grilling war of attrition against the RNG, rather than a genuinely tough battle. Is anyone still playing, or participated in a raid? Did you hate it?

Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII has made another entry in her modelling career – first Louis Vuitton, and now Nissan. China has produced a series of ads involving various people putting on VR headsets and substituting the driver with either Lightning or Snow Villiers. Why exactly? Why not? If it sells cars, it works.

Also, keep your eyes peeled for the Madman CELEBRATE STUDIO GHIBLI event – we’re looking at negotiating some discounts for all you lovely people~

And now for our events!

If you’re headed to SMASH this year, make sure you swing by our table! We’ll let you know more once we know more~

Hey team! This is just gonna be a short one because exams are killing me T_T I’ve been marathonning Yu-Gi-Oh GX instead of studying so I’m mildly screwed but that’s okay~

News and Events Banner

There’s been a few pieces of big news with regards to new releases! A third season of Shokugeki no Souma has been confirmed for Fall 2017 (so October) and, in the biggest news, a third season of Attack on Titan has been promised for 2018! Do we expect delays? Yes. Of course. It was like 4 f*cking years between the first two why would we ever take their word again. Y’see, this is why I have trust issues. In other interesting news, Sword Art Online – Ordinal Scale has outperformed both Pirates of the Caribbean AND Wonder Woman at the Italian box office. Italy has always has a thing for anime, it seems – they were one of few places that aired all 200 episodes of Sailor Moon, they religious dub just about every children’s anime that comes out… there’s a joke in there somewhere, maybe, but my brain is too fried to find it.

Nijimen has launched a poll asking their Twitter followers and other visitors to their site to pick their favourites out of this season. While the voting is definitely heavily biased (like… I’m having Crunchyroll Anime Awards flashbacks rn), the results aren’t terribly surprising. As of the time of publishing, the top three spots are taken with Attack on Titan at 99 votes, Oushitsu Kyoushi Haine at 122 votes and High School Star Musical at 142 votes. MY TRASHY MUSICAL CHILDREN ARE EN ROUTE TO DOMINATION! Ahem. Eromanga Sensei performed surprising well in this fujoshi-heavy demographic, garnering 35 votes, while steamy soft-porn x-reader-fanfic-gone-wild Room Mate ~One Room Side M~ flopped with a depressing 12 votes. I promise I tried to find less biased polls but they’re not out there yet!

Now for our upcoming events!
